Plans against Rachmanism

Election 2015: Labour plan to stop 'massive' rent increases

Since my own experiment in renting ended with a 30% rent increase, because the landlord decided he "could make more money from two flats" (as reported in a Parliamentary enquiry) I like this idea. I think the Conservatives have the words investment and speculation muddled in their response. p.s. It seems very quiet on here these days. I wonder if it is the clam before the storm.

  • Your typo made me smile.

    It brought into my mind an image of a sad little clam in a rock pool – waiting for the storm to come and wondering what its fate would be.

    I’ve had similar thoughts. Housing policy has had decent exposure for this election campaign yet this blog has been subdued. Personally speaking, I doubt that any of the main parties will deliver enough housing or do anything else that will make a big difference. Owners are still the majority and it’s obvious the parties will say just about anything for votes on economic issues.

    I think the best post I ever read here was over four years ago when someone said
    “People have to realise that the Red Yellow and Blue wings of the Home Ownerist
    party aren’t going to let house prices drop.

    Most of the ten years I was waiting for my house to get back to the price I paid
    was when John Major was Prime Minister. I guess politicians have long memories
    of what happened to him in the 1997 election.

    Of course things can sometimes be outside the politicians control as he found out on Black Wednesday.
    That day I was very pleased to have fixed my mortgage rate at 11%.
