Government decide to destroy residential areas

Extending permitted development rights for homeowners and businesses: Technical consultation

Because 29 Million Bulgarians and Romanians require 8m long extensions to house their extended families. Oh, you think that is an outrageous claim? How else can we house them. The timing is perfect. We have been screwed again for the EU project. Expect permitted extensions to become 15m long when Turkey joins the EU because that is another 80 million folk living in poverty who will suddenly have unfettered access to well paid British jobs, free NHS healthcare and generous welfare for all the family. The consultation claims that this relaxation will save home owners £100m over the period but they completely ignore how the carbuncles which will be approved will wipe billions off property values where properties are blighted by hideous, un-neighbourly extensions.

  • Some may suggest that this is Libertarian to allow a free for all. Rubbish. In the old free market system, prior to the Planning System, residential areas would club together and pay for a freeholder to maintain the public spaces and control development, to protect the capital value of their locality. Actually, development control was stricter in those days than it is today in the government run planning system.

    So for you quasi “free market” people who do not understand that free markets mean more controls, to protect capital value, then you do not understand the nature of a self regulating free market economy which seeks to protect capital values. That is not NIMBYISM, it is Capitalism.

    This is not free market and it does not provide liberty, since liberty is tied to one’s right to protect their property.

    This is simply barbarous anarchy, most likely for the political expediency of assimilating EU expansion.

    Do you want an 8 meter extension next to your back window, with no right to redress?

  • For those who did not see Theresa May’s betrayal to our labour market and social security system regarding the Bulgaria / Romania issue, here is an article from The Times:

  • I had sort of given Libertass credit for being a “Faux Libertarian”, who are wrong, but at least for the right reasons. It turns out he is actually just another Daily Mail reader and a Home-Owner-Ist of the worst sort 🙂

    Good, that saves me the bother of trying to be polite to him in future.

  • I think Liberatas is right about our continued integration into “the project” .

    How about a British Government that acted in the interests of ordinary British people .

    Teresa May has added herself to the long list of treasonous traitors only too willing to do the dirty on the people they are supposed to represent .

  • Libertas – but those local, self-regulating communities would also have had factions, jealousies, cabals, intrigues, dissembling, preferments etc., with locals playing politics with the representatives of a higher tier of government to get one over on their local rivals. And how would such communities have redesigned cities from being full of dense neighborhoods with irregular streets, poor sewerage, disease etc. to being, e.g., the Paris of Haussmann’s boulevards (even if they were designed in part to make street insurrections more difficult).

  • This is not about being a fascist or about over-population. It is merely the economics of making available social welfare nets to folk from deprived countries who have not contributed towards said schemes. Eventually you run out of money.

    This country could hold many millions more, but you should tell people that they cannot have welfare or NHS until they earn citizenship. They should be forced to have private insurance and have enough savings and potential earnings to pay their way. This is how all other countries function, and if you have a welfare system, you need this.

    Being a Libertarian, I would argue that if the welfare system were taken away, that none of this would be required, since the market would determine what opportunities were available, but it is always possible that a country would need to be protected from tyranny abroad by stopping too many people flooding in from communist / fascist countries abroad that provide no opportunities. It is not our fault they have tyranny, and we must protect our own liberties.

  • Isn’t this kind of malarky what we (well most of us) steer well clear of by renting? Reds under the beds Libertas? I wouldn’t worry yourself about “80 million Turks living in poverty”, Turkey is doing very nicely at the moment; they are seeing growth, increased propserity and their strong sense of patriotism remains un-dimmed. I don’t think we’ll see too many Turk-filled carbuncles sprouting on houses any time soon.

    Libertas, out of idle curiousity, would you describe yourself as a pre-millenial libertarian?
