  1. Im waiting for the Housing bill to confirm housing association tenants can get their houses at knockdown prices. I asked Grant Shapps, the then housing minister, about this in 2010 when the Tories were promoting RTB. Still got the email telling me "it will never happen". Ive got 50 large sat in the bank and I want it in bricks and mortar before the money system goes pop! What's the bloody hold up?
  2. Rather than these gimmicky electioneering policies like '20% your first London home for FTBs under 40', 'HTB', and 'shared ownership' shouldn't the Government just let Councils and Housing Associations get on with the business of building homes for rent? I think in this was a better balance between the social rented and private rented homes could be established. In turn the housing market might sort itself out. It does annoy me a bit that my colleague can pay less rent on her 3 bedroomed council house (+ housing benefit) whereas I pay a lot more for my 2 br private rented flat And let's start with building the right properties. Ground floor properties with decent disabled persons access. More 1 and 2 bedroomed homes for those affected by the 'bedroom tax'. Of course, the Government, especially Tories, have a shadowy vested interest in keeping house prices high. What about their children - and grandchildren? It's about time the Government considered us proles more carefully. After all, we have more voting power than the small number of affluent people who may likely vote for the crony Tories.
