Tactical voting threat?Make Text Bigger
Food for thought if the next housing minister is in your constituency and this is a bit late in the day, but only dawned on me when Gavin Barwell lost his seat.
These are really rough figures so take with a pinch of salt, but you’ll get the idea.
In Croydon roughly 177k people voted. According to a Croydon Council article in October 2015 there were 30k private rented properties. This equates to roughly 17% of voters.
Imagine if every landlord in the housing ministers constituency voted for the biggest competitor, this would almost definitely cause the housing minister to lose their seat.
Faced with this prospect surly they would listen to landlords?
