Mp's Property Portfoilios

Recommended Posts

Very good article in the Guardian on how MPs from both parties are really VI's for the rentier class.

One of the commentators posted a useful link:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jul/17/when-we-pay-rent-to-our-mps?commentpage=1

which claims to be all the property declarations by all MPs. Of course, does not cover wives, cousins, parents portoflios, but even so shows just how they will not vote for anything that encourages a HPChristmas.

It's not as if we don't already know this, MP's are not in the job to progress society and be servants of the public good, they are in it to make money at the expense of those less able to do so. Unless we as a society actually take them to task and stop this kind of abuse we deserve what we get.

The landlords are in charge, they don't care if you can afford a house or not, you will rent off them and like it, now be good little serfs and play along like its 1499. :lol:

If by "we" you mean people who read this site, then yes. And how many people is that?

I know the Grauniad's circulation is only around 200,000 for the paper paper, but that's still far more than come on this site! And apparently its website is the "world's fourth-most popular news website".

The penny might drop with a few more people, no?

They'll extract rent from you even if you are a homeowner - via the process of subsidising landlords from incomes. (housing benefit to you and me)

And also the other rentiers - shareholders - via the process of tax credits subsidising low wages.

Not even to mention the debt-based, commercially issued money supply.

Someone, somewhere is paying interest to the banking cartel on almost every pound in circulation. :(

Collectively we rent our essential medium of exchange - the bulk of it issued to us as domestic mortgages.

You could look at it as a new "gold standard" but secured on houses rather than err gold. :lol:
