Bank of mum and dad not enough

BBC News: A million more youngsters to live with parents, says Aviva

More young couples are choosing to live with their parents these days because they can't afford to buy or rent. But apparently there are some positives - such as being able to eat and go on holiday, as well having a bit of company around the house.

Why we need property taxes

Torygraph: Take a look inside the 'forgotten' £3m mansion in London's East End

"This is the incredible staircase of a £3m '"forgotten" Georgian mansion which has gone on the market in the heart of London's East End. Built between July 1741 and October 1742, the spooky four-storey Malplaquet House has not been lived in since 1895 but has been restored by its current owners." On top of it, squatting has been criminalised now. This could have provided housing for lots of people for 120 years and the owner would still have made out like a bandit even if they burnt it to the ground.

Game Over

Guardian: Property market is going to implode as housing nears peak affordability

Property prices in Britain may be surging due to a horrendous imbalance of supply and demand — but the market is poised to implode. Why? Because Britons are not earning enough money to either get on the housing ladder or are spending such a large portion of their wages on mortgages that may not be sustainable.

"This is the most important voting decision any of us will make in our lifetime"

Youtube: BREXIT The Movie

In this film, we see beyond facile arguments about house prices towards the real issues behind BREXIT. You can see very fast that regardless of the propaganda, BREXIT in the long run will result in more democracy, prosperity and resolution of issues such as the housing crisis.

Underlying weakness in British economy may necessitate ‘additional monetary stimulus’,

Guardian: Bank of England may need to cut interest rates even if UK stays in EU

Its not BREXIT, its a global deflationary slump, stupid. Of course, BREXIT would help encourage wage inflation and help lift the UK economy from its present malaise, but the globalists in charge will not tell you that, because it does not support their corporatist objectives..

Funniest Brexit article I've seen yet

Guardian: Rents and property values would drop after Brexit, say landlords

But David Cox, the head of Arla, said tenants should not get too excited about rent falls, as buy-to-let landlords may quit the market en masse following a vote in favour of Brexit. "The fact that rent costs would face downward pressure is both a blessing and a curse. While renters should face fair and reasonable prices, landlords need to be able to at least break even on any outgoings they have, such as a mortgage. If demand eases to such an extent that landlords cannot recuperate costs, we'll likely see a mass exit from the market, which would then just have the opposite effect on demand as supply falls – and we'd be back to square one." -- How could we possibly get by without all those landlords to help?
