  1. Tories are going to go large on housebuilding soon. Gove is the bagman for those buying planning.
  2. Randroids are amusing but I'm glad they will never be in charge.
  3. FTB's are now to compete with councils as well as speculators/ landlords. House-building monopolist becomes landlord. Party that ended home-ownership now collects victims equity/savings as rent. Labour returns proletariate to their proper place as per Leninist doctrine.
  4. 1997 - Closet Trots cause the collapse of home ownership. 2020 - Closet trots say the only solution is communist housing. well I never. >It’s easy to feel fatalistic about the chances of cracking the housing crisis. Not because the solutions aren’t simple – they amount to building more houses and properly taxing property investment mentioned only to be dismissed.
  5. Yet again the lying communist pissrag tries to insinuate that the housing crisis started in 2009. Here is a labelled version of their graph from this site. and theirs which clearly points at 2009 So there you have it folks, Housing crisis started because of interest rates cut in 2009. And here are the actual prices Blairite trotsky sh!trag. wasn't always like this. Both Guardian graphics you will note.
  6. On the bright side you now know the exact cash value of the property rights the Attlee government took from you.
  7. Those are the VI's yes. Those are amongst the VI's. Which is why they got top billing in my post. But pop along to reddit to see how while council houses are attractive well built works of art that float a few feet over ground upon which nothing has ever grown, houses for private sale don't and are therefore bad. (apparently the planning system also ensures quality which is why the country with the most onerous and legally empowered planning system on earth has such enviable housing outcomes.) To me that is much more amusing as they are all in rental.
  8. Naturally the communist Guardian thinks the creation of more private housing is a bad thing. b*****ds. better no housing eh? leave them empty?
  9. I notice the current planning rules do nothing to prevent this so whats your point?
  10. Why on earth should a house builder be responsible for providing these things?
  11. House-building has been an absolute and rigorously enforced state monopoly since 1947.
  12. And still the comedians think population growth/immigration is the problem. jesus wept. The collapse of home-ownership was POLICY, population has nothing to do with it. Labour even demolished 130,000 houses in places where the collapse wasn't proceeding to their satisfaction (either that or they ennobled a guy for screwing up).
  13. I agree in the strongest terms with scottbeard. Are we forgetting the endless parade of housing promises (and housing ministers) that were launched with immense fanfare and binned a few months later that have been going on for several decades now. Labour building some council housing, in marginal wards that will then go Labour, I can believe. Labour doing anything but accelerate the collapse of homeownership, not credible.
  14. You are telling me the tories controlled interest rates during the last Labour government? F__k off.
  15. Britain was actually FIRST to cut its interest rates and deregulate its mortgage market I think you will find but never mind facts eh? Tories had been in power the preceding 18 years but did not once cede control of interest rates to the BOE nor ever let them get so low as they dropped under Labour. And Bear.Getting.Old, if Labour still had any influence then that only makes them more culpable not less.
  16. >The faster the interest rates dropped the higher the house prices grew. LET ME STOP YOU THERE. Who gave the bank of England control of interest rates in their first week in power?
  17. First off the global financial crisis happened after 11 years of labour rule so how can that possibly be blamed for not allowing sufficient housing of all tenures from being built until then? The collapse of home-ownership is Labour party policy. Always has been.
