Lib Dem Brian Paddick vows 360,000 homes

Demographic shift. The elderly cannot be the only owners and BTLs forever, at some point there is going to be a shift in the electoral majority to something like residential planning automatically granted (made that up~). Lib Dem Paddick must think in London the home owners do -not- have the majority and this is a direct cut-out. Possibly the electorate affected by the housing benefit reforms will get in on this. Everybody in a shared single room. I will be interested to see what the other candidates say. But if this is the case in the capital, then whoever has been doing their admittedly slightly fascist voting sums to work out the sub-group, must also see this pattern starting to appear over the UK generally. In which case we might vote... for... more homes! Great!

    ST, yes, I read somewhere recently that slightly more than 50% of people who live in London are tenants (social or private tenants), which is why there is relatively a lot of new construction in London because less NIMBYism.

    The cautionary tale of Alf Garnett in the final bit when he moves into the at the time modern trendy late 60s tower blocks. He still didn’t look particularly happy.
