Tommy Robinson talks about Luton property 'Boom'

Recommended Posts

Tommy Robinson talks to P J Watson about Luton becoming 'the most desirable place to live' in the UK. Interesting POV from someone who actually lives there.

Can't say i agree with everything these two represent but it's hard not to agree on this - from about 6 mins in.

He is not wrong ..town is full of investment friendly properties being built or old office conversions .People are cashing out and moving on taking the London money whilst they can.

folks moving to Luton I expect have given up on life...

you would have said that about living in Peckham not so long ago. Honestly people need somewhere to live and all of the jobs are in London (ok you can probably have a better standard of living on a lower wage in Kilmarnock, but a lot people don't see it that way)

Things to note the 23 mins is only on the East midlands service which is not that regular and is pretty full by time it gets to luton in morning.Normal Thameslink is around 40 mins.

Also even Thameslink services if they start at Bedford are nearing capacity seating wise by Luton in morning 

Lastly on st Albans was told by a friend who spoke to an EA( He is helping his parents sell their Luton proporty 198k to 580 since 98 selling to Surgeons moving from London ) that alot of buyers from St Albans are buying in Luton. Should recall that 2 years ago St Albans was listed as a big growth area in price now too expensive so the commuter belt moves north

Agreed , London is a black whole eating the nearby places up.Story in standard yesterday firewoman in London had to move to Brighton to afford a home now takes up to 3 hours each way to get to work ...could be worse though at least she doesn't have to use Southern Rail ...

When Tommy Robinson has become the voice of reason, it can only demonstrate how deluded the mainstream commentariat has become.

They'll move to the next town up....If they haven't already.

I suspect this 20% is investors looking for a return outside of london.

I'd rather have taken my chances with Bulgarian property in July 2007.

Back in about 1990 I asked someone at work who lived in Luton what it was like. His reply

"you wake up in the morning wondering if your car is still there"
