Generation Rent - manifesto pledges for renters and where renters' votes matter most

Recommended Posts

Generation Rent have put together a map of 'Renter Marginals' - constituencies in which "there are more private renters without a strong commitment to a political party than the incumbent MP’s majority". I love the idea of renters getting together as a political force. What?! It could happen!

They also outline all of the parties' manifesto pledges for renters. It seems a pretty objective - party-neutral - summary and handy to have them all in one place.

Is there a renter's party? I would be very interested to know if there is even a possibility of such a thing.

No but there are parties for land and property owners...they are called Labour, LibDem, Conservative and UKIP.

! Not this time but perhaps by the next election there will be enough rent-burdened 20/30/40-somethings to form one.

If the conservatives win, there will almost certainly be an attempt to form a breakaway remainer party. This party will be just as bad as the others regarding house prices and rents. Is there even one current MP who gets it? How do you influence politicians who think the problem is the solution. Rip it up and start again.

All those who voted for an exit, will keep the conservatives in power is just what's being pumped out the governments brain washing machine. 

State backed mortgages (Labour, 2017) = Help to Buy (Conservatives, 2013).

Freezing electricity prices (Labour, 2013 = Price Ceiling on Energy Prices (Conservatives, 2017).

Nothing new from each mob. If they remove fee-paying education system.. I'm guessing where the young votes will go.

Triple Lock pension pledges will get the OAP votes.

Reinstatement of Fox hunting, will get the toff's vote.
