Affordable rents – doublethink in action

In the housing sector we are sometimes rather keen on words and phrases that either mean the opposite of their true meaning or that make “lies sound truthful”…..At Harrogate a couple of weeks ago there was much discussion about re-naming the affordable rent regime. A few suggestions were: “so-called affordable rents”, “naffordable”, or simply “unaffordable rents”.  I prefer the last one. Words should mean what they say and say what they mean.
