Economics crash course for Osborne? Star Letter 11/12/2015
Each week, we round-up the best comments, emails and letters to the site and pick one reader contribution as our Star Letter.

This week’s Star Letter goes to Mac75 for his comment on the story Housing watchdog urges government to rein in Right to Buy.

Has this government gone completely mad? Why give away the housing stock at a discount and then use tax payers money to compensate the housing associations for selling at a discount. Me thinks David and George need to put themselves on an economics course.

The council and housing association renters have had the benefit of cheaper rents than those renting in the private sector anyway.

Can someone explain where this plan makes any sense to UK plc please?
