Confiscate the Homes of Bad Landlords

Hat tip to Housing Journo @PeteApps on this Observer article and well done to Clive for coming out with something quite radical but really sensible and worth doing.

My only hesitation was "Great idea but I do think to be fair & consistent that social landlords should be subject to the same penalty (and confiscated homes placed elsewhere also)"

Why should rubbish social landlords be treated differently than rubbish private landlords? For example, in my 11th year as a national UNISON NEC member for Housing Associations, I can tell you that a minority of them can act as badly as any rogue private landlord.
