Could the Conservative government be driving Landlords to the Brexit Party

I am old enough to remember those times too, a left wing government pushing it’s socialist agenda.... There is not one example at any time in mans history where a socialist system has been a proven success, not one.

If you read the world news, as I have to on a daily basis, you will see Brexit is not the only reason for house price growth decreasing, it is happening everywhere, the market has peaked. The litmus is in Hong Kong, their market dipped a year ago and the rest of the world follows.

Back at home, Gideon Osborne in his infinite wisdom added an additional 3% stamp duty on to the purchase price of any secondary home. Due to this deterrent, the treasury has seen a sharp fall in SD tax collection to the tune of £1bn. His policies to remove the mortgage interest relief deduction and to now pay our tax at gross level rather than nett, have scared people away from the market.
In order for a country to grow through investment it needs to keep hold of it’s entrepreneurs and wealth generators, these major facilitators are currently leaving in droves.

Vote for Labour this is what will happen.... 3 day week, inflation & interest rates escalating at an eye watering pace that we cannot keep up with, unions running our utilities and transport networks, the PRS housing market destroyed by yet more draconian regulation. Industries need to be free of intervention to succeed.

We were known as the poor man of Europe I grant you, if we remain tethered to the EU we shall be dragged back down to the 1960’s and 70’s levels once again. Without employment we have no tenants who can afford the rent..... If it’s so bad why do people want to come here?... Read More

Common culture heritage with our European neighbours? The respective royal families probably do, all the proletariats have ever done is go to war with each other.
We never voted for a fiscal union, one tax system, one court of law governing us, one European army. We should have stayed on our own at the beginning, by now we would be one of the richest nations in the developed world. Instead we’ve allowed ourselves to be dictated too by unelected bureaucrats who think they know what’s best for us.
Britain has more culture heritage with those countries belonging to the Commonwealth and these are the countries we should be engaging with at every level.
I see no benefit in belonging to the European Union. Would you join a club where every £10 you offer they only return £7 back AND tell you how and where to spend it?
Heritage is just a recorded passage of time, I want to keep hold of my hard earned money to spend how I choose or our how elected government chooses..... the EU is a self serving cabal, enough is enough... Read More

Currently there isn’t one, the Brexit Party are engaging the electorate to vote for change. It may appear a leap of faith, one I am willing to take because we cannot carry on with the constant battering on our profit margins, onerous taxation and bureaucratic interference by the Conservatives. To my mind they are not solving problems, just creating them and we need alternatives to banging our heads against a brick wall year on year, they just aren’t listening.... Read More

If we employ the same points system as utilised in Australia when admitting potential workers into our country, it will guarantee the high grade EU tenants you speak of.
We’re in a state of flux and change needs to happen. Gideon Osborne’s policies are wrecking this once profitable industry and now Theresa May’s government are implementing Left wing doctrine into the PRS.
I’ve had enough of being made to look like the bad guy, the only answer is get out of Europe and refocus our policies on what is good for us and good for Britain.... Read More

Protest with Care

This Conservative government have cost me £12,000 per annum off the bottom line of my property portfolio earnings. I shall be voting for The Brexit Party this Thursday and I encourage all landlords affected by the Section 21 shambles to do the same. The Conservatives need to understand we do not agree with their policies.... Read More
