Nothing in this Daily Mail day-before-election article is true, but the comments do tell a story of a public that now seem to want house prices to go down, and a media that keep telling them that they should only keep going up.

I'm looking at the best rated comments and none of them seem to like this, or the thought of an HPC?

Well I suppose they are good at manipulating house prices, Gordon and Tony presided over the biggest rises in history, socialists like renters and not homeowners, that's why Tony and cheri are btl landlords !

For better or for worse Jeremy Corbin and his supporters seem determined to undo the work of Tony Blair. It would be amazing if he managed to kill off the housing bubble too!

My theory is if you're far enough into "The Right" then everyone looks like a Socialist.

All I've seen from the last four PMs is a warped sense of socialism whereby great dollops of cash get transferred to the needy banking sector.

Blair & Brown wore a red tie, but had a cold blue hart. The last 20 years have been an utter fleecing.... Irresponsible, reckless decisions for self gain politicians. Now salaries never melted up.. alias houses now must come down.. everyone will attempt to cash in before the real deal breakers occur.

Exactly, '97 the country rose from the issues from '92 only to enter into reckless spending cycles, benefiting the few.

No.

Labour want a state bank to lend young people loads of money to buy oldpeoples houses.

Fckem.

If Labour wnated to crash house prices then the quickest andcheapest thing would be to cap housing benefit at 400/month. And not allow non UK nationals to claim any form of benefit.

I think at the very least he won't use props and will not support ramping. That would probably help a lot.

I remember a few years ago hearing him talk about the causes of the housing crisis like a HPCer. He now just talks about the supply and demand narrative because it is the received narrative. Corbyn understands the issues but is sensibly quiet on them.

As Spyguy mentioned:

Quote

Jeremy Corbyn has told Newsbeat that Labour is working on a "state-backed mortgage scheme" to help young people buy a home.

Speaking exclusively to us at a rally in Birmingham the Labour leader said he wanted to "encourage home ownership" as well as rented accommodation.

He added that "very high deposits" were a part of the problem.

I think labour have some good policies but I just cant vote for a party supporting open door immigration.

This argument has some weight for a lot of voters. I honestly believe they could win if they readdressed this approach. Even just a little. JC has addressed the 'exploitation of cheap labour' but I too fail to see how free movement combats that. Increments in minimum wage will just make things worse with an open door policy as minimum wage will pretty much just become a standard floor.

Then I realise the tories will never address mass immigration anyway. They have too many donors addicted to the teet of cheap labour and housing benefit. If it ain't from Europe it'll be from Africa and the subcontinent. Choose your poison.

Of course the pound could get utterly trashed then all our young can go work in Pret-a-Warsaw for double-bubble.

Any politician could crash house prices simply by restricting the credit spigots to what they used to be. Unfortunately a lot of elite would lose their paper wealth. Hence continuing the status quo is usually the favoured option.
