New Shelter video attacking letting agents and rental conditions

If the tenants do not like their PRS rented accommodation there is the door. Move on rent somewhere else. It’s that simple. Supply and demand will balance the ‘books’ eventually. If they still not happy work hard , save, forego a few luxuries for a few years and buy their own houses! Like I did. What is wrong with this current generation. Supported by groups like Shelter and Gen Rent who have no actual homes to let out but wish to destroy the very people providing decent homes to those to bone idle to graft for a living and get ahead. Stand on your own to feet and feel the benefit it achieving something you actually work for.... Read More

Bank of England increases Base Rate to 05%

you have a valid point Mark - but this is not the 1970's 80's anymore and there are differences in attitudes and the global response times to information. We are more than ever influenced by other factors in the world. I would find it sad if lessons were not learnt from history.
Dealing with high inflation is not difficult (been there and bought the t-shirt/video watched the film) but this is a different generation with diffrent parameters.
High inflation was always going to be the fall out from the last 2 years. The key is stopping it as it only benefits the rich. That would be all us filthy rich landlords. Joking aside it only widens the gap between well off and the less well off. Totally against the concpet of Gove's paper. If there is actually anything in there yet of substance.... Read More
