Report Guess the next Government housing prop in House prices and the economy Posted May 16 18 minutes ago, msi said: Hi Rishi. Why not got for a UKGov mortgage backstop that will hoover up the dross - aka Fannie BoJo? You can sell it to your rich mates for pennies in the pound and underwrite the whole thing with Tax Payers cash, just like student loans. You can promise to be tough on immigration (just get Priti to do all the dog whistle stuff cos she can say it) and then sp*nk a load of 'high value' visas to keep the chicken shops and HMOs going. Don't worry about paying off the debt - just let Labour in for a term and blame them for the following 30 years, innit? Speaking of HMOs... Perhaps there is scope to scrap size limits on rooms? Not that it is currently enforced anyway, but it would certainly give landlords that extra a bit of confidence to divide up living spaces. Think of the yields in London! As long as we can get everyone back to physical offices, I'm sure hoovering up 80/90% of net take home pay for a newbie to the capital (on £23k-£25/year) would be possible!
