If he's serious he would build more social homes. But he won't. 

People in social housing and who rent don't vote typically vote Tory. 

That's why they are declining in London and growing in the midlands and north - in the later ordinary people on average wages can still afford to buy a house for now.

Jenrick should go though - he isn't effective in the job.

Maggie has been the best PM we had since WW2, but the bar has been very low

I'd agree with that.

Major - OK, but wobbly.

Blair -Effective, but untrustworthy.

Brown - Overrun by detail and not able to lead people to his way of thinking, but in retrospect did ok in financial crisis.

Cameron - looked the part, but too lovey with the Lib Dems and not really a leader.

May - totally useless.

Johnson - worse than totally useless.

What is your opinion of our next PM Rishi Sunak

Part of the ongoing decline, sad in a way

For the stake in society that we want to offer to people to be meaningful, it’s vital that we offer our children the ability to put down roots in the places they grew up.

😂

Really Mr Jenrick, he better dump a million quid into my 0.5% bank account then.

"180,000 'affordable' homes in 5 years"

Brexit and COVID should make them all affordable in that time 🙂

Indeed with a deflation of the mega bubble they wont need to build any. Just make them all affordable.

Such a simple concept to grasp 😉

I think a version of this....could be the HPC slogan. 

Just stop HTB, 3000 year interest rate lows and QE and they will all be affordable  😉

If we are now so pathetic that we compare a flu virus to fighting the First or Second world wars you know we are done for. Government printing and QE forever will mean the £ in your pocket will be worthless but employers will only pay the same wages as 2010. Saving money to buy a house is now like chasing after the wind.

Affordable homes just means poor quality ; designed to be slums from the start. 

The Builders still have to conform to the Building Standards requirements which are improving all the time. There aren't special material suppliers that are going to sell sub par materials on the cheap.

There aren't going to be any "affordable homes" built by commercial companies because their costs are going to skyrocket due government money printing and they have to make a few £ profit. Affordable now means affordable with a 30 year mortgage and HTB.

The level of defects in recent new builds is quite baffling, enough to have Persimmons say they will put increased focus on bringing building quality to the forefront of their concerns.

In theory they have to fix defects, or it's legal action. You would hope that buyers are also making sure the house is covered by the NHBC scheme.
