Tory Landslide – Landlord Reactions

The Conservative Party have now won a majority in Westminster with over 364 seats and counting ensuring, barring disaster, a Tory government for the next 5 years.

The country appears to have voted in line with the vast majority of landlord sentiment favouring the conservatives and rejecting the far left socialism of Jeremy Corbyn and Momentum’s radical Labour party.

Is this a positive affirmation for Tory policies and the popularity of Boris Johnson, merely a rejection of Corbyn, a vote for the least worst option or simply a Brexit election?

How positive or not are landlords waking up and feeling this morning?

Is it just a relief?

With the backing of voters and MPs for the next Parliament will Boris Johnson no longer feel the pressure to attack landlords?

Let your peers know your thoughts on what just happened.

Reply to the comment left by Whiteskifreak Surrey at 14/12/2019 - 11:22I fully agree with you.
Brexit is going to be a disaster for anyone who is not a wealthy hedge fund manager or investor and Boris is a total liar and the best parts of the NHS will be sold off to the corporations. The Tories don’t give a monkeys about small landlords, they will only listen to the large corporate landlords because they are ones who are paying them.

I have to admit the thought of a Labour win this time really worried me. The vote has restored my faith in the population's adversity to a Marxist state and I won't now have to send section 21's out with Christmas cards to my tenants! It's a great shame that Labour still dominate the Bristol City area local to me. Voting results were tightly contested with small margins this time. This Labour win was probably due to the high number of student, UC and industrial (having close ties in Europe) voters. Most landlords with properties in Bristol City live outside the city, they will still suffer from Labour's local administration of additional and selective licensing and anti landlord rhetoric.

Sorry I did not check out your previous posts Whiteskifreak. You and many refer to Boris being a liar. I'm puzzled. Please tell me a blatant lie he has told. Remember that a lie is statement made in the full knowledge that it is completely untrue. Boris saying when he became PM that he would get Brexit done by end of November was NOT a lie. He believed he could do it but underestimated the efforts of MP's to frustrate him, hence the GE we have just had.

Frankly speaking there is too many of lies and I do not have time to go and look for them. With his broken record of Get Brexit Done by 31 January and concentrate on other issues important for the UK - I would say this is the greatest lie of all. He is suggesting an easy ride and land of milk and honey from 1 February. Everyone knows that 1 Feb is a beginning of the beginning of years and years of negotiations. He knows that as well, but chooses not to say so.

Two other lies:
"“The cost of getting out would be virtually nil and the cost of staying in would be very high.” 6 March 2016 - care to remind me how much has that idiocy cost already?
“There will continue to be free trade, and access to the single market”. Lave Campaign, 2016
The latter definitely has not materialised and will not for a long time. Do you remember the FTA to be negotiated "over a cup of coffee"?

I'm over the moon [yet still in Scotland]. The result has solved my 3 biggest fears. In order of personal terror....another hung parliament, another Scottish Independence Referendum and Corbyn being put into the cockpit.

Boris is a proven liar but there seems to be overwhelming tolerance with much of the press and others saying "oh thats just boris" and not holding him to account so we should expect him to lie!
e.g lie down in front of bulldozers
die in a ditch
will exit by 31st october
parliament stopped deal
oven ready brexit when anyone who read the detail knows thats just the withdrawal and a trade agrement will have to be negociated and a lot of rights have been removed from the legally binding part.
Obviously a strategy for soundbites with no integrity
Now he has labour areas to keep sweet as well as London I think private landlords will be a prime target, we are already demonised and don't have enough influence. We will be blamed for homelessness not UC and LHA freeze and local councils will be encouraged to levy fines to prop up their budgets.

I don't see it as any worse than all the other politicians' lies over the years, like "weapons of mass destruction" and "free broadband". All politicians lie, but, sadly, the quality of the lies seems to be getting worse. Most of them aren't even entertaining these days.

If I tell the world I'm intending to run a mile in 4 minutes tomorrow and it in fact takes me 4 minutes & 10 seconds does that make me a liar? All this talk about lies is depressing. The time to sling mud at Boris, or not, is in five years time when what he has achieved can be actually judged. Meanwhile give him a break.
Meanwhile the pound is rising nicely, inward investment in the UK is lining up and the interest rate rise that would likely be already in the pipeline had Corbyn got in won't happen. What's not to like?
Happy Christmas to all who have contributed to this post both the rejoicers and the moaners.
