Does not resolve the fundamental issue

Telegraph: 14 New garden towns and villages to provide 200,000 homes to ease housing shortage

With free movement of people, you could build 100 new towns and it would just cause more people to come, particularly with the Eurozone having porous borders to the middle east and Africa, bringing in unvetted people, many of whom are illiterate and incapable of supporting themselves and their families. Of course, few of them will be able to afford any of these new houses. Fine, have lots coming in, but at least work out how many homes we have and can build and be in a position to plan for not only homes but schools, hospitals, jobs, etc!!

God forbid measures to encourage the use of our existing housing stock more efficiently were considered! More rooms per capita than ever before but in places where businesses are not viable under VAT and other destructive taxes and/or under-occupied. High time to abolish the single occupant discount on council tax and bring in a whole lot more bands to get rid of the 0% tax on value over approx £1m. And drop VAT and convert business rates to a land tax so buildings in Scunthorpe are not taxed to any meaningful degree and hence businesses could stand a chance

How many of these announcements are we meant to sit through?
