Corbyn - Rent Controls, Security Of Tenure And 500 Thousand Council Homes In The Next Parliament. Yes!

Recommended Posts

Live on BB2 "BBC Newsroom Live" at the moment..

EDIT. oops.. that's 500 THOUSAND council homes.. not 500 million. That would probably be excessive :)

Mods, is it possible to change this? or delete this thread as someone else will probably start one..

On sky news live too. The parties need to compete on high house building not high house prices. This is a positive development. That's my phrase by the way!

If my housing situation does not improve come election time I will be voting for him.

He will be a disaster but change is needed and he is the only one offering it.

I suspect he has the right questions but the wrong answers. It's a start.The

first useful opposition party we've had since 1996.

Aren't i right in thinking its Tory policy to build 1 million new homes in 5 years.

Be better if he aimed for 2 million.

100K council houses a year is not enough.

The Tory party and Nulabour have been a disaster for the average worker, he would not be any worse.

But i will vote for him in 2020 if things don't change rapidly.

The Tory party do seem to copy many of Labours spending and manifesto pledges when in govt.

If Corbyn promises a massive house building project I can see that being a vote winner, obviously not with the property speculators and BTL landlords though, irrelevant of what his other policies are. I am bothered about a few things Corbyn suggests, and am very concerned about how he will deal with the violent men of this world who cannot reasoned with. I am torn by Corbyn, deep down I am a socialist and agree with some things he says, but with some people being nice is not an option.

Well critics make out he's actually quite nasty, so fear not...

There's a reason every book available to the establishment is getting thrown at him. hillariously it only serves to boost his profile and support further.

It'll be interesting to hear how many are going to be built under May's proposals - when they're revealed.

Under Dave it was a secret at the general election (with media hints of 200,000 a year by 2020) although subject to much hyperbole but now the media are suggesting it might be mass house building - and some would dispute 200,000 a year in the last year before a general election in 2020 would be a mass amount of house building.

Currently new home building under the Conservatives is still at the record low levels.

May will never deliver on housing because Tory nimby's will always block it.

Carney seems hell bent on wrecking the economy to keep the bubble going. Rather than actually fix the housing problems he's creating money to keep a generation priced out of housing.

Its the productive economy vs the ponzi bubble.

Sadly Venezuela shows that our politicians could be even worse than they are.

Probably May.

If she uses her head, we should be out of the EU by then and starting to recover.

If she doesn't, I cannot see Corbyn re-capturing Scotland, so Labour does not have a hope.

If May messes around with Brexit, then UKIP could do well.

Who knows?

Yes much better to be a wage slave for all your life than to have a few years of struggle.

The current situation suits May and the electorate that voted for her.

So Corbyn will build 500,000 council houses, who will be allowed to live in them / will they be allocated to, serious question. Just families with kids, couples with no kids, single working men. Allocation by points system (as now I believe) and I can see that if you are a working man earning say 50k you will not have enough points and will still be priced out of buying ... ditto for say professional couple (no kids) on say 70k joint .... but if you are two people on min wage with a few kids on tax credits then BINGO.

Yes it'll be the usual parasites getting them, but in theory it frees up 500,000 somewhere along the line.

Problem with Corbyn is he'll invite 1.5 million immigrants to live in them.

But 5 years worth of that electorate will have died and replaced with 5 years of voters who would sooner vote Che Guevara.

Trump is the other side of the political spectrum and the MSM are saying he is wrong, the only time we can vote correctly is when voting for the status quo.

Trump winning would lead to the US getting lower rates, QE etc...
