a controversial regeneration scheme which residents have forcefully re housed people are being stunned into off to london especially to people reach take a children. around they've been offered you know to some of the homes outside london and council is so brutal force to us because this is the last division of the middle class people they don't care about the class you know the working class people we know that we a stoppage that so we do not expect anything and i know that they are but he didn't totally s. well from you david to the current of physicians grassroots activists and then council housing member fred mills and had jeremy corbin's manifest affairs ahead yup coming grenfell tower inquiry you know jeremy jeremy called an initial comment to back to build from. a hundred thousand council house in five years was very
3:08 pm
wealthy but i have to say that in the course of the election that was watered down watered down watered down what disprove what is the tree of recent events from going for the tower says that we need council housing we need council housing one by. responsible managers not intended not held out so well for the council but actually it's a core function of the council to. run their housing properly and that means keeping them straight back out is this allowed to happen in the first place i spoke to greenland assembly member and comes in council of the highgate sean barrie about the causes of the housing crisis built with was a skepticism that the market as a has been unregulated and day regulated for the faulted all we are saying rising costs were saying look the problems with people buying homes sits around the fire
3:09 pm
that distorting the law and the big developers business model really is failing and we're saying lots of hands to all belts no no london it could ever fool it's to buy those of us that just about scraped enough to rent and further damage our chances of buying it's genuinely broken and either way you've got powers like you've got the mass of a car is rolling back on some of his promises to people on estates tube and when it comes to things like rent controls and having a vote with the you have is to alleged however the crisis goes beyond the capital to communities across the u.k. kevin judy grew up in scotland schools on a housing estate he says has been ignored by power given the choice by films like dispossession the great social housing swindle the people there called bush and god and the people you're going to see in this film will come your from the tory. party enough i'm going to join a party when they don't tell policy joins in those trees i'm inclosing. what do you
3:10 pm
make of all the ones that she's brought on board as they care that are going to make a difference not that you're going to make a difference it's going to be isn't. perfect show selfishness on this. not care for anyone else if you do if you actually think the joy in this country believe in social haitian they don't believe in society margaret thatcher said the residence is nineteen there's room and this is not just a movie this is a train moche this is dennis paw this is the postman what this is a saying of the times this is a show clone creativity documentary film camera and get on people tell the truth for some in this country put on a screen expressing the human cost of the housing crisis on the big screen this documentary explores the cats struck phase that led to a chronic shortage of social housing. essentially we. simply haven't seen them
3:11 pm
for social housing and they've been cutting in. senior producer peter bennett there i'm outside the grand fell to our north kensington in london now with the director of this possession of the great social housing swindle paul first of all just your reaction to. hear lots of the mainstream media cameras you don't hear anymore. in the building obviously you can't really comprehend what went on. when i found out about i was in sheffield and i was seeing the images on t.v. and initially like my space where you just feel sympathy and empathy for the people that it's affected and then afterwards you know shock and anger the fact that it's been allowed to happen i think there were a dozen counts so inspections of that building and seeing this this all come out in the last few days it just draws you back to systematic neglect not only of people in council housing of working class people of poor people of vulnerable people all over the u.k. . the thing i keep going back to is the seventy odd tory m.p.'s that voted against
3:12 pm
the landlord bill to make homes fit for human habitation and i think that you know this terrible incident just you know raises more questions and more anger about why we have a government why we have a system of parliament that isn't representative of people who go to the film because of course again and again even just after the aftermath. when the. still raging we were told not to politicize it. was the conservative and labor policy of the right to buy so popular and yet so much part of the current housing crisis in britain i think it was popular because you know working class people like anyone else wanted to own their own homes and there's nothing wrong with wanting to own your own home you know it's a desire that goes back years and years and years and so the right to buy in principle wasn't a bad idea but the problem was they didn't replace like for like i think that you
3:13 pm
said that they would be in every place too for everyone they didn't even do one for one and so you know that goes into the blair and brown administrations as well in the combined period of thirteen years of new labor they've built fewer houses in total than thatcher's government averaged every year so it's it's an issue across both parties and it's a policy now i think needs to end because we do have a housing shortage you know we do have problems with council housing but continuing to sell off that still cannot replace is just senseless and you tackle the issue of labor councils up and down the country blaming not councils but blaming central government for. housing storms yeah i mean that's the thing i mean it's very it's very easy to blame central government and say this all comes down from the state local authority to have to be a bit smarter i mean obviously their budgets have really been cut to the bone you know announcing things as in the case of lambeth council where they announced the demolition of cresting the gardens on. you know that's not very clever that's
3:14 pm
actually deeply insensitive is actually offensive so you know not only do councils have to communicate better but they need to explain why they do in these three developments and you know working with property developers is always a very murky area because at the bottom the bottom line for a bob is profit but why do you think if you'd like to subsidize movies as a way to make housing more equitable gets going common currency in media and yet in your film it comes out. all it does is to make housing more on affordable accounts housing did used to be a permanent safe secure home you know in the fifty's and sixty's my family when they got council housing they were proud of it they lived in they knew it was their home for life but the problem is now you know with thousand and planning out there are going to be no more you know last time tenancy is in the film that when a person dies in social housing it's a requirement to just sell it on to the private sector yeah that's part of the new
3:15 pm
house and i'm not sure we see with that's going to be the case for you jamie solicitor from st james who appears in the film as doc is of the view that a lot of that policy may or may not actually be in force i mean there are still campaigns to try and repeal that so i think we're still in very early days but what it can do in principle is bad enough i think that in the film you talk about social stigma or a bit like in rio's for villa's people to admit to living in social housing so. polarized is its class in britain today yeah there's a lot of stigmatized around it and you know that comes from the media it comes from t.v. programs poverty point shows where you know council tenants are depicted is on benefits that the picture is somehow on this thing is stupid and that's not the case you know some of our brightest minds and people came from council house in town. it's actually the social problems created by a society by system of government the problem but when it comes to who the government listens to and you. film it appears the. very very rich
3:16 pm
state agencies recommend to the government policies like destroying four hundred thousand special housing homes and the government listens to reports coming from estate agents that that will win from that pool of yemen i think there was a report from samples that came out and it was any day i think they put a figure on someone's worth in london i think you've got to be earning about seventy thousand pounds to be worth your spot in london that was the average figure you know i don't know too many people that much money and so what you have then is the colonize ation of space you have and the idea that to be in this city you have to justify your place here by earning a certain amount of money which means you can afford to pass or rent or mortgage and also spend this much on you know what is the london economy and that's you know that's just it's nonsense isn't it. your film outlines how areas are socially cleansed. initially we thought there would be real housing there for the survivors
3:17 pm
of the greenfield tragedy the latest i think is the will to resume said in london nash is saying that borrowers or neighboring bars how do you think i do in policy makers if we have to hold them to account if they've moved some residence into some nearby luxury apartments which have a concierge service which have a gymnasium and it's important that the people that move into that property get those services i mean whether they're in a separate section i don't know whether they're think they will be in a separate. area for so-called affordable housing just describe what a poor do or is yes i mean a poor doris' and luxury apartments which is where the social rent tenants leave an end there are all sorts of reasons for that used to justify it part of the agreement with the builder is that they'll only make a certain amount of social rents available if they. there is
3:18 pm
a separate guy an entrance also reduces the cost down for everybody so you can argue economically that you know there is a reason for it but then on the other side of it you can look at it as being a systematic microcosm of our society that the rich going one way the paul even of a white and then you've got you know two people that were in the press complaining about the price of property complain about how they've worked so hard and now they're going to have to mix with you know all of these you know working class people and i despair at that you're really despair and it just shows you where we've got to where we've sunk to as a society because you know we're all culpable in this as a society we all need to actually take responsibility and if we don't have those fears challenge those fees. and that's it for one of your favorite shows of the season will be back with a whole new episode to going on the ground on wednesday the seventeenth of january children by social media have a happy. in
