At the heart of the Government's plans to solve the housing crisis is the provision of cut-price houses for £60,000 each. The Swedish retail giant, IKEA, has a name for properties of that sort: it calls them Bokloks. Given that the land that they would be built on has already been earmarked for sale by the Chancellor and the definition of "key worker" is at best muddled, does the Deputy Prime Minister agree that the term "Bokloks" just about sums it up?
