When 27% is a majority...

So - an attempt to give the millions of people who rent a slightly smaller chance of getting rogered by their landlord has been halted by the new government. No surprise there.

But Shapps should check his figures...

Housing Minister Grant Shapps: "With the vast majority of England's three million private tenants happy with the service they receive, I am satisfied that the current system strikes the right balance between the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords".

And then the facts: "In a recent survey of 1,300 tenants, it found 73% were unhappy with the service they received from their agent".
