Home Ownership for the many

I have briefed Wokingham and West Berkshire Councillors on the new government’s policies to promote home ownership. I have offered both Councils my help in sorting out any details or difficult issues with the new policy outlines with Ministers.

The Councils need to include the Right to Buy offer in their wider social housing policy, and to work with developers and Housing Associations in putting forward more affordable homes for purchase.

    The government has promoted home ownership for most of my life and look where it has got us. Hugely expensive housing, shortages of the right sort of housing, enormous and growing private debt and bankrupt zombie banks propped up by government borrowing. Brilliant, another success for central planning.

    Those of us on average wages will never be able to afford a house down south.

    Total policy failure from all governments over the last 25 years and the biggest problem facing the country right now.
