Kent Landlord - Hero or Villain

If this is all about safety of tenants and ensuring that they have a minimum standard of living, why is it not also covering social landlords and HA? Is the government/councils deciding that their tenants do not need his level of protection? How many council tenants with children under 5 wait more than 24 hours for the council to effect repairs?

The RLA and NLA are supporting the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill

If this is run in the spirit of its intended use, I am quite for this to come in, as it will massively improve the PRS and remove the rogue landlords that sully the rest of our good names. Would this be a good reason to campaign for the removal of selective licensing?
On the downside of it, there needs to be some sort of protection from unscrupulous claims made by these ambulance chasing 'solicitor' firms when they run out of PPI, packaged bank account and interest only mortgage claims. I can already see the TV adverts "did you tell the landlord that your lightbulb had blown and they didn't change it, we can get you thousands of pounds on a no win, no fee basis" (but we take 35% +VAT)!...
