Miliband accuses Con-Dems of being soft on Homeownerism.

Govt 'making it harder to provide homes'

Ed Miliband has claimed the actions of the government are making it harder to provide homes. The actions of the government are making it increasingly difficult to provide homes in the UK, it has been claimed. The politician backed up his argument by pointing to cuts in investment, the removal of the requirement on local authorities to allow new homes and the "botching" of the planning system. He stated this generation of politicians needs to act now in order to prevent people having to wait until they are in their 40s before they can afford to buy their first home. "A task I have set for our policy review is that we must seek to stop the inexorable rise in the average age of home ownership," Mr Miliband added.

  • All because the previous Labour government had a policy of encouraging an inexorable rise in the average cost of a house I’m afraid Ed.

    Pots, kettles. Funny how the minute Labour were in opposition they started making some tentative non-Home-Owner-Ist noises.

    I notice he can’t bring himself to say “we must seek to stop the inexorable rise in the price of the average home” which is actually what is required. Forget Ed & Dave, give me The Steve

  • Is home ownership more important than homes/housing?

    MW – It’s a play on words – Maybe you have to be of a certain age…. I thought you would have been. When you should have been listening to pop music you were clearly campaigning for whatever cause celebre was flavour of the day. I refer of course to The Steve Miller band
