I've seen some recent examples of the equivalent of carbon off setting, huge blocks of prestige apartments withe the vague promise of a future development on a brown field site next to a sink estate in another part of the Borough. No poor door/rich door blocks in the centre of town. We know how that will end...

Sadly, whenever I hear the phrase "affordable homes for first-time buyers" I hear "cheap properties to add to my BTL portfolio". :evil:
Me too.
It's great in theory, but as soon as they're sold on the vultures will be after them.
Vultures with family members of the appropriate age can skip the whole "sold on" business.
The only way I could see of actually seeing "affordable homes" actually go to first time buyers or downsizers as opposed to BTL's would be to (a) apply a punitive levy on the stamp duty of any such designated residential building being bought by a private individual whom is already a homeowner, or whom later becomes one with a second property that they intend to live in themselves, and (b) apply a punitive levy on the rates or Council Tax of any BTL property that is rented out which lies below a certain rates band.

Now, the suggestions certainly aren't perfect and I'm sure there are various loopholes & schemes as well as certain circumstances that would have to be taken into account, but at least it would be the start of a discussion. Given however the general attitude among MPs concerning landlords and property developers, don't expect this any time soon.

Worst rallying cry ever:

THE SUN SAYS Either we give Boris Johnson the majority he needs to get Brexit done or we get Labour’s economic chaos

THE fight for Britain’s future prosperity – and yours – has begun.

Boris Johnson launched the election yesterday with a stark choice, between a thriving, confident nation bursting with opportunity for all, or a nightmare that would begin on Friday the 13th of December if Jeremy Corbyn is in No10.

The options are clear. Either we give Boris the majority he needs to get Brexit done; to build a new, fairer relationship with our European friends; and to unleash a surge of investment. Or we will be stuck with paralysis, uncertainty and Labour’s economic chaos.

If you believe in respecting democracy, the decision is a straightforward one, but this election is about more than just honouring the Brexit vote.

If you believe in Britain; if you back yourself and your aspirations; if you want to be part of a dynamic economy, being rewarded not punished for your hard work and enterprise, then there is only one way to get it.

If you believe in unprecedented investment in our NHS; in better schools; in greater technology and infrastructure; if you believe in safer streets with more police on the beat, then the only choice is Boris.

Let battle commence.











What the fuck? I thought postal voting was something brown people were taking advantage of and it needs to be investigated?
cynically targeting millions of postal ballots which are disproportionately used by older Conservative voters.


Union hijack

NO sooner is the election under way than Jeremy Corbyn’s hard-left union buddies have begun flexing their muscles.

The Labour-affiliated Communication Workers Union has promised “significant” industrial action in the build-up, cynically targeting millions of postal ballots which are disproportionately used by older Conservative voters.

The staunchly socialist Rail Maritime and Transport Union has announced an unprecedented strike covering almost all of December, piling more misery on commuters as Corbyn pretends a nationalised rail industry would solve all their problems.

These are shameless attempts by the bully boys to skew a democratic vote. But far worse would follow if Corbyn were Prime Minister.

He would very quickly roll back legislation that kept the unions’ worst excesses in check, letting his extremist pals off the leash.

How long then before a return to the regular strikes that crippled Britain under Labour during the Winter of Discontent?











Still ranting about Bercow:


Speaking tripe

HE demeaned the proud office of Speaker with his shockingly partisan behaviour.

Now, out of office, John Bercow continues to spout his anti-Brexit bias.

Since he shunned traditional neutrality in the House of Commons, we trust the Tories will ignore tradition also, and deny him the peerage he craves.

The sight of the pompous windbag in the House of Lords would add insult to injury.

This was their view on postal voting not too long ago at all:




Wed Oct 16, 2019
Soft on fraud

NO wonder Labour objects to voters having to use free photo ID to eliminate fraud.

They suspect it could hurt their tally. As would a crackdown on postal voting crime, which is far more urgent.

It’s the same reason Labour opposes fixing our skewed constituency boundaries which favour them. It’s the same reason they want children to vote.

These aren’t principled positions . . . just self-interest.

And for proof of how lightly Labour regards voter fraud, consider the jailed ballot-rigger who campaigned for them in the Peterborough by-election.

Or the convicted election fraudster Corbyn hired for a senior Labour role.





Today:

The Labour-affiliated Communication Workers Union has promised “significant” industrial action in the build-up, cynically targeting millions of postal ballots which are disproportionately used by older Conservative voters.

These are shameless attempts by the bully boys to skew a democratic vote.

So, no more ZHC's, or working for some bully of a foreman in a shitty warehouse?

Make up your bloody mind. Does Labour want to crack down on postal voting because Tories do it. Or not crackdown as its used by cheating Muslims voting Labour?

I see the Sun’s love affair with British workers taking back control didn’t last long.

THE SUN SAYS Boris Johnson’s vow to tear up the insane Human Rights Act is a victory for common sense not just veterans

BORIS Johnson’s patriotic vow to tear up the insane Human Rights Act which has seen brave Northern Ireland veterans being hounded through the courts is a victory for common sense.

Of course, nobody is above the law. If there is damning evidence to back up charges against soldiers, then they must face the consequences.

But in the majority of cases, British soldiers, particularly in the campaign in Northern Ireland, got up in the morning to do their duty and keep the peace according to the rules of engagement. In contrast, the terrorists they fought got up intending to maim and kill.

Sadly, any change in the law will come too late for Dennis Hutchings, the dying veteran who now has to undergo a ­gruelling trial while on dialysis.

But if the Tories win the election, his fellow former servicemen will be spared such undeserved humiliation.

It is grotesque that the Human Rights Act — put in place to protect the vulnerable — has been used against those who risked their lives for their country.

The PM must be heartily congratulated for fixing this burning injustice.











Twincredible

WATCHING proud mum Talia Keates cradle her “little miracles” — Britain’s tiniest surviving twins — will have readers up and down the country feeling a stab of pride for our wonderful NHS.

But thanks to Labour’s economically illiterate plan to introduce a four-day week, the world-class care her family received is under threat.

Taxpayers — who are already funding the NHS to the tune of £150billion a year — simply won’t buy the mad notion that doctors and nurses should work four days while still being paid for five.

And if they are to continue providing expert health care, they must be allowed to put the hours in to train.

Corbyn and his cronies claim to love and cherish the NHS. But the truth is that our health service is not safe in their hands.





Corb contempt

IF any Brits were still under the impression that Comrade Corbyn has a patriotic bone in his body, his petty decision to snub our fallen heroes this weekend should remove all trace of doubt.

It comes as no surprise that he didn’t attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday: He makes it crystal clear that he feels no pride for Britain.

But it is vital that we don’t become immune to his bizarre behaviour. The shocking fact is that a man attempting to be the next PM will cross continents to lay wreaths for foreign terrorists, but won’t attend a memorial event for his own countrymen and women.

He must not be allowed the keys to No10.

Dear the Sun,

Remember the Hillsborough enquiry,
You shut the fuck up and fucked off for a week or so after that one.
It didn't take you long to returning to your class bully ways.

So do us all a favour, shut the fuck up longer, and fuck off a lot further.

Toodles..

bringing on the sickening, undemocratic nightmare of a rigged second referendum
:roll:




Be smart, Nige

NIGEL Farage has finally put his faith in Boris Johnson to deliver Brexit. His Brexit Party followers, and even his candidates, should now do the same.

The significance of his big announcement was the signal it sent his voters:

That Boris’s deal WILL mean a proper Brexit only a Tory majority can deliver. That a vote for the Brexit Party could prevent it. That the sole alternative is a Corbyn coalition Government — bringing on the sickening, undemocratic nightmare of a rigged second referendum and the destruction of Brexit.

So our message to Sun readers in Labour or Lib-Dem seats is this: Vote Tory in enough numbers and Brexit will be done in weeks. Only lifelong Labour Leavers who can never face doing so should back the Brexit Party. That, we hope, is what Mr Farage intends.

We applaud his U-turn as far as it goes. It certainly makes Tory seats easier to defend. But Mr Farage could still prevent Boris turning traditional Labour seats blue — which is vital for a majority.

That makes zero sense after everything Mr Farage said yesterday, so we urge him to go further. To woo only Labour voters on doorsteps and social media. To withdraw more candidates splitting the Leave vote and harming Tory chances of winning a marginal.

Remainers are making pacts and using sneaky tactical voting apps.

Mr Farage, his candidates and backers must be equally canny to secure the Brexit he has spent his life trying to achieve.














This exact thing has already started happening due to Brexit...
Indeed, recession is nailed-on once rich taxpayers and job-creating investors flee the first Marxists to sit in Downing Street.

Get growing

THE fact we have dodged recession will gravely disappoint Remain diehards.

But it is yet more evidence of our economy’s staggering resilience, even during the political mayhem as we changed Prime Ministers and approached a possible No Deal exit.

And growth will surely soar if our years of Brexit uncertainty are ended by a Tory victory. Under a Corbyn/Lib/SNP pact it will be a nostalgic memory.

Indeed, recession is nailed-on once rich taxpayers and job-creating investors flee the first Marxists to sit in Downing Street.









Armed farces

CORBYN would not have supported our troops in ANY war, we now know.

His shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry let the cat out of the bag.

But do not mistake him for a pacifist. He backs terrorists waging war on the West or Israel. Ask the IRA or Hamas.

Would PM Corbyn keep us safe? Would he hell. He admits he would never deploy our nukes — instantly negating them as a deterrent.

And, incredibly, Thornberry even reckons Labour would only retaliate to a Russian nuclear attack after a Cabinet vote. Assuming Moscow’s war machine gave them enough time to meet, that is.

What a farcical embarrassment.
