  1. Housing crisis threatens a million families with eviction by 2020 https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/jun/24/social-housing-poverty-homeless-shelter-rent
  2. Social housing 'faces slow death' . 88,000 homes forecast to be lost by end of decade Unintended consequences of 'Right To Buy'? Independent This is much the same story as extending 'Right To Buy' to Housing Associations, who also lack the funds to replace stock. Net effect: fewer affordable rents, bigger housing benefit bill. Worth noting the media slant against private landlords while the architect of the scheme escapes criticism.

  5. 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.
