Pauline I wouldn't bother to argue on this because there are good & bad people living in council houses, but there are also good and bad people living in private houses too.
Nobody can judge people by where they live because every house has people with different characters.
I have known some of the nicest people, who live in council houses, so perhaps we should feel sorry that they cannot escape the rough neighbours who live close to them.
I suspect there is a bit of snob value, for many who own their own house, but that doesn't mean that their own neighbours are nice. I once lived on a very nice private estate till I discovered that one of the neighbour's sons would allow his dogs to chase & kill pet cats that belonged to other residents.
Nobody should judge people by where they live, but decent council house tenants find it more difficult to escape awful neighbours, so get tarred with the same brush! How sad
In the end I moved to a house where there were no close neighbours, but I had to sacrifice the friendly chats over the garden fence.
