Of particular concern to readers of this website is Benyamin Habib who receives around E80,000 per month from a "property fund" and sits on the committee on economic and monetary affairs, tasked to legislate on a whole range of policies. Surely nothing improper there?

An interesting look back at prices

BBC: House Buyer Time Machine

I found this very interesting. The one thing they don't take into account is the prices of things to go in the house. In 1988 buyer a new TV was a big deal for me and when I got one in 1989 after changing jobs and moving house I paid £440 for a 25" Toshiba. An older colleague once told me how in the 1960s he paid 10% of the price of his house on an automatic washing machine.

There is no shortage of property

Daily mail: Building won't solve problem

But Mulheirn disagrees. He points to official data showing that since the 1996 nadir of house prices, the English housing stock has grown by 168,000 units per year on average, while growth in the number of households has averaged 147,000 per year. Even in London and the South East, the number of houses has grown faster than the household count. As a result, while there were 660,000 more dwellings than households in England in 1996, this 'surplus' has since grown to over 1.1 million by 2018. Similar trends are also apparent in Scotland and Wales, suggested Mulheirn.
