McDonnell's distorted and dangerous version of Right to Buy

Reply to the comment left by JJ at 05/09/2019 - 11:24And if you start out in life thinking you're going to work hard and one day, finally own your home, perhaps after several decades of work paying off a mortgage, it's not a particularly smart message for a party to be saying, "...after you've done all those decades of work we're going to take all that off you anyway."
That is already EXACTLY where my (life time Tory voter) f-i-l, who is unfortunate enough in his last years to need to reside in a high dependency care home, finds himself!
He has been obliged to sell the home, which he spent his entire working life paying for, to fund his care - which is costing him a little over a grand a week.
His is not a unique case - I hear almost on a daily basis of friends whose parents find themselves in the same position.
My f-i-l wonders why he bothered!... Read More

Crisis campaign to restore LHA levels to market rents

I thought the last paragraph was worth re-posting on my own social media page - and then I had a little additional thought: does the current rate of LHA cover the rent in any Local Authority housing available either?
I have no idea if LA housing rent is significantly cheaper than private rent, but if it's not and the article chooses only to mention the unaffordability of private rents, then the paragraph (and the article) begin to look like just another weapon that Shelter et al will have in their armoury - which they will be able to utilise to demonise private landlords further - with the accusation being that it's only the PRS that increases homelessness due to rent rises....

The House Party?

What a ridiculous article! Where are the comparable year-on-year or PM on PM figures for rent as a percentage of income or those for annual wage increases or for inflation or for .... etc.? So many other figures have a direct impact on, and therefore affect, the amount of pound notes paid over as rent or received as rental income, as to make a direct comparison of those amounts on their own a totally irrelevant nonsense!...

A question of scale

Aside from Prince Albert's, many major historic housing schemes such as the ones you mention, were funded by very wealthy men - but very wealthy men who were also Quakers, or Friends ( a historically Christian group of religious movements formally known as the Religious Society of Friends, Society of Friends or Friends Church) so they were not just religious men but men with a social conscience who truly believed in valuing their workforce and giving something worthwhile back to the workers whose toil had made them rich.
I'm not sure we have any such people left in this country (or even in the western world) anymore who have a social conscience on that scale.... Read More
