    Not only not enough construction workers not even enough bricks. Labour sold this country out and his talk of doubling construction, just whistling it up, is meaningless rubbish for his fingers in the till voters.

    Again, you can’t turn it on, skills shortages because they have not been needed. I don’t think the UK can provide the houses anymore. Its like saying oh well all the Ethiopians are starving to death and unemployed lets start a space programme. You can’t cynically restrict housebuilding with immigration for over a decade and then expect everybody to be loitering around with a hod ready and waiting.

  • Perhaps you prefer the steady rise in inequality and homelessness under the current govt. Politicians say plenty of things, some of which are carried out, some not. Worse are the things they don’t say but do, as we’re finding out at the moment. What is lacking at the moment is will to increase housebuilding. That is more of a problem than skills shortages.
