TORY AND LIB DEM COUNCILLORS FAIL TO SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN

Posted on August 25, 2008. Filed under: Housing News |

Justice Not Crisis emailed all 120 Birmingham City councillors. So far only two have supported our campaign, both from the Labour Party.

Tory councillor Peter Dougals Osborn sent an email suggesting we look up the meaning of the word “justice”. We looked at the Compact Oxford English Dictionary on line and it gives the meanijg of the word justice as “just behaviour or treatment”.

We think that refusing to sell land to Housing Associations at an affordable price so that they can build homes for some of the 30,000 applicants on the councilds waiting list is an injustice that should be put right.

Justice in an ethical sense means that in
fairness like cases should be treated alike.

I think the word Mr Osborn is looking for is “EQUITY” or the somewhat uglier “EQUITABLENESS” both meaning fair or just treatment.
Justice is always ethical, an epithet that cannot be applied to the Council’s failure to make land available for Social Housing as detailed on this site.
