The Independent - “Tories to kick children out of family council homes if parents die.” Should your parents not have to have owned their house before you inherit it?

The Independent - “Tories to kick children out of family council homes if parents die.” Should your parents not have to have owned their house before you inherit it?



On my facebook I noticed a group called “The last person to enter parliament with honest intentions was Guy Fawkes” shared an article written by “The Independent” entitled “Tories to kick children out of family council homes if parents die” which was efficacious in producing opprobrium among  young left-wing  facebook users(most likely prior to actually reading the article!), who could not wait to show dismay at anything Tory.  I however, knew instantly that this was speculative journalism and clicked on the link to read up on the topic - what a misleading title it was.
 
    The government IS taking away children's rights to stay inherently in their families council homes after their parents die. This seems awful at first, but then think about it again- it is council homes, the parents did not own the homes thus it is not their childrens to inherit! I doubt that many children whose parents die and who owned their house get to live in it afterwards also. Council housing should be allocated on needs - not on who has lived in it previously!
 
    These sorts of articles and the sharing of them infuriates me as they are purely written with subterfuge in attempt to bring down the conservatives. People share the articles just because it mentions the conservatives and something negative about there - were they never taught to not judge a book by its cover? What also has annoyed me about this article in particular is because it is from a highly venerated publication “The Independent”, which from its name implies it has no political agenda however this sort of an article would make you question just how independent “The Independent” really is?
