This chapter studies what actually happened with the RTB, by assuming that the Conservatives had sincere intentions. It talks about the specific ideas that were used by the Conservatives to justify the RTB, before it considers what the policy really consisted of. The chapter also looks at the general issue of whether one should take ideas at face value and tries to determine if it is appropriate to question the motives of politicians.

Keywords:   Conservatives, Right to Buy, motives of politicians
