Labour hypocrisy on council housing (Flintshire style)

Aaron Shotton, leader of the Labour opposition group on Flintshire Council, is leading the campaign against stock transfer as 15,000 face a ballot on switching to a housing association for a landlord.

His principled stance against this privatisation policy is only partly undermined by the final paragraph in the story:

Cllr Helen Brown, executive member for housing, spoke out about claims that the council was pushing for stock transfer.
She said: “The council is taking a neutral stance.
“The decision to go to ballot was made in 2007 and approved by the full council and Cllr Shotton, as leader, moved the motion.”
