All things being equal, the Tories (I know that’s a funny phrase already) should be building around ten times the number of affordable or social rent houses as that built in SNP Scotland, given the population ratio. They’re not. They’re building only around 5 times as many, creating major and accumulating shortfalls. Why are you not gasping with surprise?
This chart from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation shows the Tories achieving, on average, 47 641 builds between 2011 and 2017:
The SNP government, in the same period, build, on average, 6 804 (see full table at url below).
Readers may also notice the upturn in supply after the SNP replaced Labour (Scotland) in the driving seat.
