At least Blair and Brown didn't introduce tax changes that directly fuelled real estate speculation.

Um, SIPP's? PIF's / REIT's anyone? Tax relief on interest and maintenance/agency costs?

The real estate speculation is driven mainly by an oversupply of cheap credit & underperforming stock markets - the same as everywhere else.


halving of capital gains tax, negative gearing and generous depreciation allowances which act like an after burner to the real estate boom.

I have had a chat with a friend in Oz.

You can invest in Australian property as an outside investor provided it is a new property. You cannot buy a second hand property.

And not suprisingly you cannot take advantage of the Australian FTB'er scheme where you get thousands of dollars towards your fist property.

* Thanks to John Howard racism is now accepted as OK and normal.

Do you think that calling anyone and everyone a racist may have played a part in this.

You know what they say about smoke and fire

Too many people in the public sector are non-white and this is especially visible in the NHS. Now we know I’m a racist so maybe you can go on explain why we have this imbalance without resorting to myths about the white people not wanting these jobs and shouting racist

Silence ……………

Indeed: when people with perfectly reasonable and understandable opinions are immediately called 'racists', it merely devalues 'racism'.

These kind of boogey-man tactics may work in the short term, but in the long term they make matters worse. The best way to get a whacko party like the BNP elected is to call reasonable people 'racists' and ignore their concerns...
