A local official in Scotland attempts to draw a parallel between their "housing crisis" and the Highland Clearances.
The Lochaber News attempts coverage but you have to pull a muscle for this to make sense - how too much debt preventing more mass construction debt to build subsidized council housing is anything remotely like the systematic depopulation of your country for herds of rich people's sheep.
"The lack of social housing for rent has reached crisis point and unless there is immediate action from both Governments in Edinburgh and London then we may have another Highland Clearance on our hands."
While there is a strong desire from Highland Council to build new council houses, Cllr Cameron said its aspirations are hamstrung because of a historic debt on its existing stock which prevents further prudential borrowing.
"The irony is that today's generation aspiring for a home cannot afford former council houses which are on the market for £100,000-plus. The Thatcherite policy of selling council houses with massive discounts has come home to roost with a vengeance.
