Second-home Owners Are Among The Most Selfish People In Britain

Recommended Posts

A very good article which, says it all really, but rather depressing at the same time.

Article is spot on - I posted about multiple home ownership and measures to not encourage it and it's moral and ethical implications - this guy summed it up very nicely.

I like this readers comments:

Well said, George, and absolutely right. I left Britain in part because I couldn't afford my own home, but here in Asia the English-language press (Singapore's Straits Times, Hong Kong's South China Morning Post, and Jpaan's Daily Yomiuri) are chock-full of ads from British estate agents inviting Asian millionaires to buy second (or even third or fourth homes) in Britain, purely as an investment. These houses stand empty all year round, whilst locals are squeezed out of the proerty market. Simply put, there is no justice.

Adverts inviting foreign investment - i feel sick. There will be a day of reakoning for all those involved.
