What right has anyone, political party or politician to deny the aspiration of home ownership to the less well off?

I don’t deny anyone the aspiration to buy their own homes as long as they have the wherewithdall to do so and that doesn’t include selling property at knock down prices of 70% off the true market price just to win their vote. This policy and the non building of new social housing with the profits is what’s causing so many people today the inability to be able to buy their own property for the simple reason the prices are beyond their reach. So they house them in privately owned homes and pay market rents. No wonder Council Tax increases and yet again the tax payer foots the bill.

No-one’s offering todays generation the chance to buy homes at knock down prices of 70% off.

I find it unbelievable that you can even try and defend this nonsensical policy to be honest.
