Are They Panicking Over The Under 40's Vote ?

Recommended Posts

Sunday, we will give under 40's a 20% discount on properties.

Today, we will build 100's of thousands of houses.

Are the london liar's desperate for the young vote ?

Have they realised how unhappy they are with the current system ?

Please, if you are under 40, dont believe a word they say, judge them on what they have done ( i'll give you a clue...tuition fees ).

Labour appear to be panicking too

All rather late

The British government appear to be panicking.

At the end of the day, oppress people long enough and they will snap.

Only those with old timer's disease, and the young/naive vote for any of them anyway.

Judge them on what they do, not what they say. The housing crisis has been going on for nearly a decade and a half - and they have done nothing but throw petrol on the flames at every opportunity. All of the main political parties have had their chance to sort it, and they have chosen not to.

If you are 41 and not a home owner...ahem...mortgage payer, both the young and the old hate you.

It only applies to some under 40s - something like 100,000 was mentioned some time back although for sure the propaganda is slanted to sound like everyone is going to get 20% off.

Milliband was on the radio a couple of days ago about how Labour are going to reduce tuition fees. Great seeing how he was involved in the NuLabour government that increased them.

The most laughable thing about the news item was how Vince Cable responded by saying what a bad idea it was.

They're all a complete shower, a farce.

what about someone who is 41 who is not home owner. Could not think of better way to upset with some blatant age descrimination.

Just my thoughts. What a stupid and ill thought through idea to try and motivate young voters.

Nah, gesture politics.

Some analysis has shown that the affordability of housing is the biggest blocker to the under 40s voting for the mainstream parties, so they've announced a policy which is in reality a subsidy for house builders, but sounds positive for the under 40s in the news media in the run-up to the general election.

They'll be able to calculate an x% conversion rate for target voters after the election. You can then calculate a cost per voter in this demographic for this kind of policy during the next electoral term. No ideas here, just number crunching.

Politics is rotted.

Cameron just let in 300,000 extra people (net) in one year.

Because its regressive. i.e. Its a political headline rather than an economically sound progressive tax policy.

Lest we forget:

Broken Promise # 38 Immigration. David Cameron's "no ifs no buts" promise to reduce immigration to tens of thousands lays in tatters.

Although the independe4nt claim he was going to reduce it to 100,000

Just electioneering and a lure to try to entice people into the housing ponzi.

Truth is the more people that can be suckered into property ownership the easier it is to control them.

Moreover, under 40 year old property buyers once vested in the market are going to have more in common with older property owners than their non property owning contemporaries

Here's a thought. No tuition fees, remove all the property props and the pensioners' triple guarantee. Sort of the same as when most MPs were younger. I must have missed where the MPs have donated vast sums to cover their own tuition fees ....

State pension needs to be means tested, along with all pensioner welfare.

It takes the pi$$ that they want BTL as a pension, they have the last decent private pensions and sit on the majority of £5trillion in housing equity which is propped up for them constantly and they still get pensioner welfare irrespective of their means.

Meanwhile under 40's are struggling just to form families let alone look for long term stable shelter. And must pay for these universal pensioner benefits.

Yes, that is me, 41. Too old.

It only applies to houses between 250 and 450k anyway so still impossible for us to afford.

This...Very few youngsters I know are buying property, because it is way beyond their reach and they have far better things to do with their money than throw it at highly inflated manipulated bricks......they are living with parents, friends or relatives, avoiding starting families where two parents and children can live together in one secure household earning sufficient money to cover debt and bills, a living wage in the place where they live and work.......Hey Ho....fewer people having kids in the place they grew up in because the subsequent governments and their property inflation policies have priced them out.

So it is not only the younger generation that are feeling the human cost of high house prices, it is their children and their grand children as well....over 40s and the under 40s....means a big chunk of the population, of all ages.
