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.

Dear Richard, I'm very sorry if the talk of politicians telling lies is depressing to you but whats even more depressing is when a government minister tells a lie so breathtakingly blatant about a government plan which very predictably will result in tens of thousands of needless deaths per year?
Dominic Raab just got caught lying blatantly about privatisation of the NHS, he wrote a pamphlet on it, and then denied the Torys would do that and then questions on TV why US corporations would possibly want to put up the cost of US supplied drugs, to a privatised NHS. For the money obviously and they will do it if they can possibly get away with it. Every year tens of thousands of Americans go bankrupt because they cant afford their medication. After they've gone bankrupt, lost their home (their family gets to be homeless too) and job they often die anyway due to lack of medical care, its the American way.
You can watch the movie Sicko by Michael Moore, that is whats heading your way, imminently.

So thats a great plan, landlords will get rising rents but ourselves or our tenants may go broke from increased medication costs.
It will become apparent way sooner than 5 years what Boris has done to ruin the NHS and peoples lives and he will deserve way more than mud slinging, a rope and the nearest lampost springs to mind.
Have a Merry Christmas (while you can still afford it).

Like I suggested, let's reconvene in 5 years time and review what has actually happened versus the Armageddon predictions being emanated now.

Once again something written 8 years ago and as usual reported out of context. Lets not forget the private deals Labour actually did to build hospitals which now cost the NHS millions of pounds every year. When are you lot gonna give up twisting and lying, you're much worse than Boris!!!!!. I was gonna do loads of things 8 years but didn't for all kinds of reasons.

Can't say that I see a vast difference in politics during my 63 year lifetime but in the past 20+ years a huge difference in people's tolerance levels has grown and festered. Everyone gets outraged at the slightest of things and even twist statements so that they can increase their fury. Seems to be contagious, addictive and definately can't be healthy !!! Spontaneous combustion must be imminent.

I’m sorry, how was it reported out of context?
If you google “Dominic Raab lies about the NHS” you will get many many hits from all different sources.
If a government minister wrote a pamphlet a few years ago about something so potentially devastating as to privatise the NHS do you think he has now just forgotten about that, that it was just some fanciful daydreaming and that’s it just his natural charisma that got him into Johnson’s government?
No Dorothy, he’s there to fulfill an agenda.

Spot on Paul. Outrage & zero tolerance very evident throughout this post. I have outlived you by 10 years and hanker for the days when if a government fails to perform then we just voted them out. Simple. None of the venom before they have even started in office.

As usual the very biased views of Jonathan Cooke and all left. One thing I noticed there which is typical of "fake news" etc. on your side is that child on the hospital floor, which has now been proven without doubt that it was once again totally taken out of context and twisted as being the fault of the NHS. I suppose your gonna say that I'm telling lies now. It so sad that nowadays politics is about making up nasty stories about each other in order to try and win an election, well Jeremy failed in a big way thank goodness. Wouldn't it be lovely if it was based on the merits of those standing and nothing else, fake news banned. I have written your reply to this on a piece of paper and I bet I'm spot on.

This is vastly off landlording topics now and polarised views are likely to become personal which is not helpful for the community.
