Labour Coalition Good Or Bad For Hpc?

Recommended Posts

It looks more likely that the outcome of the 2015 election will be Labour getting the most seats but not enough for an overall majority. They will have to go into coalition. It seems likely that the coalition will either be with the Lib Dems or possibly with the SNP (although this is a long shot) or other minority parties.

Are these likely to be good or bad for HPI? Both would be very leftwing and I can see some changes to the private rented sector. How do you think a Labour coalition would affect house prices (especially in London) and the rental market?

Would a Labour/SNP coalition bring in some more left-wing housing policies like the SNP are doing in Scotland?

Are any of the bookies taking bets on this yet?

Not sure if coalition with the lib dems is an option for Lab or Con seeing as they'll probably only get 1 vote.

Lab and Con may as well team up just to further rub it in that they are not public servants and it's all a pantomine!

Labour will be good for property VIs...more pseudo austerity, more debt...the day of reckoning delayed. Meanwhile under Tories, an in out EU election in the pipe line for 2017, some genuine austerity and I reckon market jitters and a lack of money will mean the party days are over.

It doesn't matter who wins, they are all the same and we'll be equally screwed and screwed over whichever pretty colour is in 10 Chump Street.

I think it is very unfair to include the SNP in that statement. They are regarded as having been good at governing Scotland. Alex Salmond as another example donates his entire pension and 1 third of his salary to charity. None of the other leaders do this and most of them are millionaires.

What poll is this from? I would have thought Labour have little chance of being in power at the next election with Miliband at the helm.

Hard to say (I know it always is) but specifically because

a ) they'll rip up Mortgage Market Review and get banks lending if you can fog mirror again

but

b ) Mansion Tax will probably hit PCL which of course will affect national averages.

All in all I'd say bad.

Again though it's more material when will be the next global shock. They won't be able to slash rates enough, like 2009.

Will be a Labour SNP coalition. Alex Sallmond will sit where Clegg does now.

Just imagine that. Him sat there grinning at the tory front bench in opposition.

As long as johnny foreigner gets the wind up that Labour are back in charge we'l get a HPC soon enough.

Salmond not the leader now, it is The Chick in charge?

Do you not see us doing an Iceland if Labour get in? Would the cost of our debt not soar?

I know we can print, but so could Iceland. 18% wasn't it when it went pop.

One things for sure as long as any politician has the ability to rig prooperty then they will.

Were people feeling sorry for Andrew Mitchell last week? Hope not. He's got 4 houses.

Ah yess. Next to where Clegg sits then. Either way he'll be grinning from ear to ear.

He's on course to be on that front bench one way or another.

IMO the Tories have not done enough savage cutting to lose, they will still pick up votes, Miliband is unelectable, this will be reflected in the count. There will be a massive swing to UKIP, and we will get some sort of UKIP/Con coalition, with the anti-EU element of the Cons coming to prominence. Leaving the EZ will be centre stage, with all the attendant market jitters :P, and there will be more global shocks to come, hopefully involving the realisation that the EZ itself will have to break up :P:P. The only strategy I have at the moment is to count "wealth" as how many years you could live without working, a big mortgage doesn`t count as "wealth" any more. Cash, premium bonds, trackers and some well researched shares will do for me, the market is too rigged to stretch any further into financial La La Land IMO.

Yes, if he hasn`t retired then he will be there and loving it, but I don`t see Labour winning an election just now, they will lose too many votes to UKIP. My reasoning is that UKIP have been all but faded out of Telly Land recently, that means IMO that reality on the ground around the country is diverging from "The Narrative" and state controlled media won`t want to talk about this until forced to by actual election results. The problem with the "Red Team/Blue Team" game is that if you put up "leaders" as ridiculous Miliband the sheeple won`t want to play. Either the elites are losing their grip or they are just having a laugh?

More likely a minority labour gov't with SNP support on a supply and confidence basis. Expect Salmond to use the position to screw everything he wants out of Millibrain.

Unless it`s a lab/con coalition all i can see is trouble ,if labour win my moneys on lab/snp (will the markets turn on them) if the blue party win all i can see is con/ukip (an in out referendum will spook the markets ) the divorce proceedings between con`s and the libdems have already started, so the next five months or so will be nothing but back stabbing with no chance of any reconciliation in May

Worst outcome for a HPC would be lab/con both have a proven addiction to HPI

I don't believe the SNP would want a coalition with either Lab or Con, and the Labour party absolutely hates the SNP. I think the SNP might offer 'confidence & supply' but I would not be suprised to see a Lab-Con Grand Coalition, while UKIP and a Green/SNP/Plaid alliance vye for official opposition status.
