Previously, the social media user uploaded a video replying to a comment that read ‘Why would you even do up a council house, it’s just burning money’.

The mother said: “When you move into a council house, there’s no paint on the walls, there’s nothing on the floor, it’s an empty shell, it’s not newly decorated like some private rentals, you don’t get nice plastic walls.

“You don’t get rooms like this without spending money and that is not burning money.

“What if I never get a mortgage? What if this house is where I’m going to be for years to come?

“If I said I was never going to spend money on decorating this house, then we’d be living in an empty shell for the rest of my life.

“That’s not burning money, it’s using your money wisely.
