Letter to Santa Salmond isn't a good enough plan

The Libdems hit "spinsville" again with their claim that they would build 1000 new affordable houses was shown to be little more than spin and wishfull-thinking when the next headline was "Libdems to ask for £350m for SNP Government"

1000 more than what, where will they be built, by whom and who will pay...?
We all want new affordable homes but what we need is not a letter to Santa Salmond but a plan that gives us the money, the land and the people to do the building. Headlines don't build homes, clear political leadership and a touch of realism do. Both would be helpful items on this administrations Christmas pressie list as they are sadly lacking them at present.
