Australia - Setting A Precendent?

Recommended Posts

Odds makers give Aussie Labour pretty poor odds.

More like a non-electable party grandstanding and making up news.

Like Corbyn stating all his ****** about council housing, index linking private rents, taxing the rich...yeah, buddy, ok.

It's good that they're discussing it in the event of possible power.

One has to say though that it's not the first time the subject of housing/house prices has been discussed before an election around the world with the reality on election being completely different.

Chancellor Brown's famous/notorious "promise" about no more house price boom and bust for instance.

Promises promises.

Why does Corbyn get so much grief when hes the only person that is willing to sort out this mess?

BTL and HPI VI's are a powerful lobby, imo.

He's got a different moral compass to his contemporaries, I'll give him that.

But he's fighting an unwinnable battle.

The landed gentry & royals will not for a second cede anything in the UK.

And the press/media is mainly conservative leaning in the UK if you haven't noticed.

Also, the electorate of once fervent Labour and Liberal voters have grown punch drunk in apathy watching their once loved parties donning the mantle of scumbag non-aligned self serving gits, who are for the most part indistinguishable in all except the colour of necktie.

Corbyn did refer briefly to "overpriced housing" in PMQs a week or two ago. Cameron ignored that part of the question and Corbyn didn't press the point.

Er, say what t f???

He does bring it up at PMQs every week, for this he needs commending.

Don't think opening the immigration floodgates even further will help housing, at some point the too many people argument does come true.

Corbin is a politician, when his mouth moves he's lying, just like the rest of them, the housing crisis does need sorting out but he is not the man (an elitist socialist to boot) to do and as his party reigned over uncontrolled rampant hpi that was actively encouraged by the son of the manse/world saviour brown, I wouldn't look to them for succour. Its a long time coming but the turmoil we are seeing now isn't over and as houses have been treated as commodities they will (eventually) act like them ie depreciate... and fast, I'm old enough to have seen it a few times now and the nearer it gets the louder the cry of (can't happen here) , just a shame that the young as always are suffering because of the actions of the old ! If I were to be made young over night I would be off to another country without a backward look !

To be fair Jeremy Corbyn could hardly be classed as a Blarite.

He has been talking about the affordability crisis for years

Here is a 2001 debate he organised on the topic.

Thanks for the link.

Looks like he recognised the buy-to-let credit bubble 15 years ago!

Can't paste the excerpt but it is within the third paragraph.
