Labour Attacks 'skyrocketing Rent Rises"

Recommended Posts

Basically every politcal party is asleep at the wheel, making the right noises (which are useless). It's like they're all in a holding pattern, ensuring the status quo remains. Labour make noises about rent every now and again, but nothing changes. Tories return with their noises, nothing changes. And yet, the public are strangely accepting of the charade taking place before them. I blame Facebook.

It was Labour who drove up cheap rents to 'market rates' for public sector housing, setting the bar for high rents.

What they allowed to happen to house prices, the BTL explosion and lack of bank regulation - mewing for lifestyle not home improvements - are reasons why we are in the mess we are.

Would love to hear a politician say houses prices are too high (and why), instead of misunderstanding or dodging the issue.

All parties are the same - establishment parties. Labour and Tories - same taste, different coloured bottle.

Already many more sofa surfing, beds in sheds, even sleeping in cars in some areas....nothing is done because there are no longer economical homes to house the homeless......the rents are too high both for people and councils.....

Ive decided to go to Amsterdam to live. Its still expensive, but not as retarded as London.

2 bed for 1,100 euros a month in a nice area. Close to city centre. Schipol airport is 4.30 euro compared with 20 quid approx for stanstead, gatwick or heathrow.

Live in a nice city, in decent accommodation. Should still be able to visit london to see friends once a month. Flights are 60 quid return.

Councils would be given the power to limit "skyrocketing" rent increases, John McDonnell has said, as he set out Labour's approach on the economy.

Promises promises - no more boom and bust - the new approach but on rents this time :lol:

Some people will even believe him.

YOu can say that. Equally people say 'But the Conservatives would have deregulated the banks'.

Maybe. Maybe not.

But it all happened on Labour's watch. Their fault.

Frankly, if you wanted any proof that Labour is just for political cronies and the public sector then 97->2010 should be enough.

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jan/20/labour-eurosceptics-accuse-corbyn-reversing-position-eu-referendum

Speaking at the launch of the Labour Leave campaign on Wednesday morning, MPs Kate Hoey and Graham Stringer said the Labour leader and the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, had consistently voted with them and fellow Eurosceptic MPs on matters relating to the EU in the past.

....

“We were joined on many occasions over the last 20-odd years in the lobby when we were doing our bit to oppose the various treaties and issues which were furthering EU domination of our country. Jeremy was always with us and John McDonnell was always with us,” said Hoey.

How much you can rely on them for promises on rents, for that matter how much you can rely on them for promises on anything.

But not going to attend to the immigration situation. Get ready for people living on the streets. Go long sleeping bags if labour wins.

Not at all. They will just bump up housing benefit and taxation to pay for it all.

Is there any end to this borrowing?.......default on the past, borrow the future.....

You can't tax those who do not earn or earn enough to live and therefore can't spend. ;)
