Buy-To-Let Fuels The Housing Crisis

Recommended Posts

A superb article by Rosamund Urwin [“Stop buy-to-let”, May 14]. She is a breath of fresh air for condemning the disgraceful buy-to-let market. We ordinary, real Londoners need people like her to highlight the outrageous greed and unethical practice of buy-to-let and the insane whooping from all the media and “investors” that accompanies astronomical price rises. http://www.standard.co.uk/comment/letters/letters-to-the-editor-buytolet-fuels-the-housing-crisis-10259414.html

One family or one single person, one house.

Regulate the bankers.

Problem solved.

I know it, you know it and they know it.

Ask yourself, why don't they do it, why don't they serve the 99% instead of the 1%?

Great timing again - soon after the general election. The Standard can sort of claim it publishes articles supporting fair policies (but not until after it matters).

Another interesting subject in the article:


The appliance of science? Not in the Cabinet

The Cabinet is now less male, and a little less pale. One thing that hasn’t changed since the last parliament, though, is its unscientific composition. There isn’t a single Cabinet member with a science degree — no solitary Beaker thrown in there with all the muppets —yet there are six PPEists and five lawyers.

The science minister, who doesn’t attend Cabinet, is Jo Johnson, who read history. Jo-Jo is impressive and the better brother, but his own father greeted his appointment with “Good Heavens! I don’t think he knows anything about science!”

...

...

This lack of expertise might also explain why the science budget hasn’t been safeguarded. Science spending accounts for less than 0.5 per cent of GDP in this country, lower than in any other G8 nation. We need a few lab coats around the Cabinet table to fight science’s corner.

Answer: Because 35% -50% of MP's own multiple properties and let them out. The percentage may be even more.

The inspirational Mr Blair and family now own around 30 properties.

She writes a lot of articles on the housing situation, not just since the election.

No amount of money would compensate having to be faithful to that woman
