Theresa May promised the country that she would fix our broken housing market and renew the British dream.
To help with this May has appointed Toby Lloyd, formerly head of policy and housing development at the anti-landlord ‘charity’ Shelter and who also lists HPC (House Price Crash) as one of his favourite websites!
Toby is the co-author of a recent book considering the inequalities of the housing market called, Rethinking the Economics of Land and Housing. Discussing government encouragement of home ownership in the post war housing market the book states: “In an era of majoritarian democracy, governments have seen fit to slant public policy in favour of these new, domestic landowners, deepening the divide between those that do and do not own landed property.”
This would indicate a definite hostility to the idea of ownership of land and property beyond the need for personal shelter.
We will have to wait and see how much credence May gives to the advice offered by Toby, but it is likely to add to the weight of anti-landlord policies and cheap populist politics that are being served up currently.
