Tory Landslide – Landlord Reactions

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.

You're right Neil, apologies, my wife tells me I'm turning into a grumpy old man which is probably true. 70 now.

The post was "Landlords Reaction to Tory Landslide" and what was posted was precisely that so very much on topic. After exchange of opinions between those of us who were ecstatic and others of the opposite persuasion I was dumbfounded that so many of the latter view are indeed Landlords at all. To become a landlord requires a positive outlook and acceptance of risks etc along the way.

Until UK ‘incorporates’ some form of PR for voting purposes which may not happen any time soon unfortunately, Tory was almost certainly the least bad option of what many saw as a binary choice. Especially for private LLs who have incorporated...

Richard, remember that despite the noxious effect of Corbyn 53% of the electorate voted for parties that wanted to stop Brexit. The claims that Boris has a mandate to get Brexit done is a complete fallacy.

You're making a massive assumption that anyone who voted for a party that wanted to stop Brexit actually wants to remain. e.g. I'm sure some Labour Leave voters still voted for Labour even though they support Leaving still. The reverse probably could be said for Tory voters who were Remainers .
Therefore you cannot draw any conclusions for the GE result regarding a mandate for Remain or Leave.

Reply to the comment left by Gromit at 20/12/2019 - 17:34What I actually said was that Boris has not got a massive mandate to get Brexit done which was implied in the post I replied to and is something that every Tory MP I've heard speak is claiming following the election.
I agree with what you say about Leavers voting for Remain parties and vice versa but 53% support to remain in the EU is in line with almost every opinion poll taken on Brexit.

I still contend that you cannot draw any conclusions for the GE result regarding a mandate for Remain or Leave, particularly with the Labour "neutral" stance.

That's a statement made from your opinion and does not hold up statistically because no-one can actually state the reasons why every individual voted. The reality is that despite everything Boris does most definitely have a huge majority. Many may not have voted either way about Brexit but preferred Boris's manifesto compared to the other ridiculous ones. It just amazes me how some just cant accept the result and get on with it.

Statistically 53% preferred the ridiculous policies to the ones Boris put forward. For the record the Labour manifesto terrified me.

Who is not accepting the result of the election? I'm just pointing out that amidst the cries all around about Boris's stonking majority and his massive mandate to get Brexit done that he actually lost the popular vote on his flagship policy and it would be nice if he would temper his policies to reflect that fact.

And I agree with you to a degree yet all I see on TV, in the press and from the man himself is that the GE gave him a massive mandate to get Brexit done. I contend that it didn't.

Anyway it will get done now and I really hope that it all turns out well but I very much doubt it will.
