Could Post Brexit Government Be Landlords Dream Team?Make Text Bigger
Homeowners and landlords alike appreciate stability in the UK property market, so being a nation of homeowners the majority of the UK will doubtless be thankful for a new top tier in Government.
Our prediction is an all female team to fill the top two positions in the post Brexit Government with ….
- Teresa May as Prime Minister; because of her experience, track record and diplomatic approach
- Andrea Leadsome as Chancellor of the Exchequer; because of her background in finance, banking and fund mangement
Andrea Leadsome is known to have been angered by many of George Osborne’s, including the nonsensical reductions of finance cost relief for individual landlords.
If we are right about Andrea Leadsome becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer, this is possibly our best hope of seeing a reversal of George Osborne’s policies to reduce finance cost relief for individual landlords. Of course, the backup plan remains to challenge the legislation under EU State Aid law, which still applies post Brexit, via a Judicial Review funded by the #TenantTax Campaign.
We think Michael Gove might land himself a position as Foreign Secretary, however, he has just stabbed Boris in the back, so might be seen as someone not to trust.
Boris Johnson announced earlier today he will not stand as Prime Minister after Michael Gove withdrew his support.
The former Mayor of London revealed his decision at an event that had been set up to launch his campaign to succeed David Cameron.
“Having consulted colleagues and in view of the circumstances in parliament I have concluded that person [to lead the country] cannot be me.
My role will be to give every possible support to the next Conservative administration to make sure that we properly fulfil the mandate of the people, that was delivered at the referendum and to champion the agenda I believe in.”
Just to lighten the mood a bit, there is of course an alternative (wink, wink) 😉
