In the bit I just saw they said that the UK has space for another 1.5 billion homes if we wanted to build on all the land. Pity I can't vote for this policy by pressing the red button on the remote :)

They highlighted the plight of a family of ducks who look set to be evicted from their little field by big nasty houses.... Won't anyone think of the ducks?! Talk about trivialising a serious issue.

Sounds about right - the ducks are thought of more kindly as they're not a threat to the wealth from HPI.

Its utterly quackers... who'll get the bill... ?

They didn't say that at all. They said house SALES soaring 40%

Now you might appreciate why the here resident bulls roar loudly.

About time you asked your nominally Socialist Government what it intends to do about it.

Desperate sellers soar 40%

Who gives a shit. Hope the savvy buyers are offering below the top prices achieved!

It doesn't matter if there are another 15 million immigrants - if house prices are supposed to keep rising who the hell is going to afford them ? A far more likely outcome is a recession, mass unemployment, tax rises to pay for them, and a very large house price 'correction'. The fact is that the UK is going bust on a tide of unsustainable debt. No amount of suits and shirts on BBC trying to talk the housing market up are going to alter economic fundamentals.

Spot on. Whilst prices and volumes are rising, no-one can claim that prices are unaffordable (to sufficient buyers). When insufficient numbers of people are buying them (because they can't afford them) then prices will fall.

The figures show we are still not quite there yet, and to deny that is delusional.

I think the Polish gentleman interviewed said that they do not mind multiple families living in one house which is something that indiginous Brits may have to get used to as immigration causes more shortages of houses and much higher prices to come. I saw this happening in Southern California where I lived until last year. Multiple occupancy of houses made them more affordable as each family contributed to the mortgage. It is something the native Californians would not do but the Mexican and South American immigrants take to living as extended families like ducks take to water. Parking became a problem though with about 6 to 8 cars per home! Its all a question of adapting to new lifestyles with overcorwded housing the new paradigm for the property market in the UK.

As more states join the EU and send a percentage of their population to the UK we will need to build more mass housing on greenbelt. Perhaps reverting to large tower blocks for multiple occupancy per unit. Jobs may be difficult if we continue to outsource at the same rate as we allow inflow of new immigrants. The only solution will be to raise taxes to cover larger social welfare and job subsidies to keep employment going in the UK.

Yet another reason for the UK to reclaim its freedom from the EU pronto.

Surely if we got the millions of British citizens on the dole/incapacity benefit off their arses and made them work we wouldn't need 7 million immigrants from overseas. We would also then need less housing!

It is quite disgraceful that there are areas of London (e.g. Newham and Barking - probably a large proportion of BNP voters!) where less than half of adults aged 18-64 are economically active (i.e. not doing any paid work). Yet London apparently has a shortage of workers?!?

Welcome to the lifestyle Nu-Lab is bringing you. But don't worry, we've never had it so good.

I think you've decribed one of the few scenarios where the BNP might actually get to form a government.

How likely is it really though?

If only the immigrants who came here actually did go & "do the jobs no one else wants to do," instead of just claiming benefits.

Don't believe me? Well try this link then: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/articles/labo..._households.pdf

Page 9 is particularly enlightening vis a vis the proportions of workless households (ie, one with working age adults where none of them are employed). Funny, considering all of the employment opporunities that they come here to exploit, how immigrants have by far the highest percentage. How much does that cost in benefits? A few quid per head of the working population in extra taxes no doubt. On that basis I think that the last thing we want or can afford is another 8 or 9 million of them landing here.

If we could get all of the lazy a*ses claiming incapacity benefit back to work, then maybe we might be on a par with our hard working Indian friends.

Just to explore those findings in a little more detail:

"Lone parent households are more likely to be workless than other types of household, particularly those with children under five years of age."

Don't give chav mums free houses & benefits then!!!

"Analyses of the characteristics of working-age people living in workless households show that people aged between 50 and state pension age, the long-term disabled, and those with no qualifications are more likely to live in a workless household than other working-age people."

No Shit Sherlock !!!!!

"The analysis also shows that long-term sickness/disability is the most common reason for economic inactivity among those living in workless households, particularly for those living on their own."

So what the BLOODY HELL are they doing here then !!!!! They're not much cop as workers if they're all sodding well suffering from long term illnesses are they !!!!!!

Or could it be that incapaity benefits are just too easy to claim & the vast majority are economic migrants!!!

So, working on an avaerage family size of 4 (2 adults & 2 children - although immigrant families can tend to be much larger, & assuming they bring their families, which they may or may not), & assuming that only the male looks for work, as is traditional in many immigrant cultures:

10 million immigrants/4 = 2.5 million potential workers.

At least 25% of them will be from non working homes, leaves 1.875 million workers, the vast majority on minimum wage.

So, we're supporting 8.125 million immigrants to "gain" 1.875 million minimum wage earners, contributing virtually nothing in taxes, all 10 million soaking up public services, benefits (WFTC, child benefit, etc, etc)

Just who benefits economically? The taxpayer certainly doesn't, the British worker doesn't. The only people to benefit are employers with a supply of cheap labour.

Of course this is just the sort of "either or" crap that the nimbies promote, there's no real why the ducks can't remain, not to mention dozens of trees, however our model of development is that of intense high density tat.

Did you see the bit where they interviewed some chav minger who said 3 bedroom houses were like gold dust in Reading?

Why are there literally hundreds on the market as I type according to RightMove then?

Perhaps she isn't fiddling her Family Tax Credits well enough I say to myself?

I saw an interview in the paper with some chav woman with about 10 kids (virtually all to different blokes) complaining that the council wouldn't give her a new bigger house. When the reporter got there she was still in bed (dinnertime), & she did the interview in her new lacoste shell suit whilst swigging a can of lager.

What a fantastic country we live in.
