Government home-buying schemes didn't help anyone in the Maldon district

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Help to Buy didn't help anyone in the Maldon district, according to Government figures Help to Buy didn't help anyone in the Maldon district, according to Government figures

No-one in the Maldon district has used government-backed schemes to get on the housing ladder.

More than 100,000 households across the country in the last year used Help to Buy, where the Government lends buyers up to 20% of the cost, or Right to Buy, which allows tenants in social housing to buy their home.

However, no-one in Maldon has used either scheme.

It is one of three districts in Essex where residents have not used Right to Buy and one of only two where people have not used Help to Buy.

Across the east of England, only Maldon and Castle Point had not seen homebuyers use Help to Buy.

I am really tired with 'Help for Heroes'. Why?

a) They are not heroes. A physical hero is someone who wins a medal.
b) They are just people who chose to do a job for which they knew the risks and for which they were paid and compensated.
c) 'Help for Heroes' is only interested in veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan ; two wars of very questionable legality and morality and which have achieved at best nothing, and more likely made our country less safe.

A primary school child should not be wearing such an item as I seriously doubt he has the capacity to understand all the issues involved.

Failed again Jack222

However nobody really cares what you think. Try making some friends and discussing your ill informed opinions with them in person, perhaps you have and failed at that too.
