    3% extra to wash their money is nothing, i bet theyd still be buying if it was 25% (picks number from sky).
    Better to have 75% of something that 100% of nothing.

    Section 21 kicked into touch .. this is what landlords use for no fault evictions (this sort of stuff seems to go into budgets)
    Section 24 brought in so all landlords are taxed on their income ... not only those on the upper tax threshold.
    7%  overseas buyer premium.
    Help to Buy scrapped and replaced with some form of MIRAS for first time buyers ... on the presumption this is what they mean by cheap long term mortgages. Obviously a 10 year fix at 2.5% isnt low enough.
    The first 3 are what id like to see, the first 4 words of the 4th point is what any free market party would do.

    Makes sense, but this 4 year continuation of "Help to Give money to property developers" shows why their share prices shot up, and how reliant they are on taxpayers money. Truly is sickening this blatant theft that was meant to end not long after its was introduced in 2013. Seems just like QE the Tories know it cant end without crashing the economy.
    Also the above line where taxpayers fund the infrastructure and private builders benefit from it without chipping in is another reason to see them spike so much.

    Hong Kong charges 15% to non chinese.  Never seemed to dissaude people.  
     
    Riots in the streets did.
     
    Any government not full of idiots should be charging non citizens 10-20% extra to invest into a stable, fairly non corrupt asset market

    Yes but it shouldnt be broadcast on a taxpayer funded service, as its about something that happened 3.5 years ago.
    I wouldn't expect to hear Gazza ridicule those who voted LibDem at the 2015 General Election on C4, its a similar analogy.

    These people have had this mentally since childhood, they are clueless middle class idiots who lack the intellect to come up with an alternative view. These people do not mix with people like working class folk who could enlighten them as they're petrified. The kids who have working class parents that they meet at uni dont count, as its still in their environment.

    And its why i can no longer watch the MSM, as such simplicity is lost on the talking heads.

    I think the answer to that is because social mobility in the uk was not easy but easier when he was young in comparison to current times. Working hard, getting a decent job plus some luck catapulted quite a number of people to better jobs and some to top jobs.
    Much harder in our current nepotistic society where millions of people find out that hard work usually doesn’t help with social mobility at all!

    He also seriously upped surveillance and eroded privacy of the individual when he was Home Secretary and was in fact an architect of the hideous RIPA act which has ruined many lives. Indeed, he is Blairite globalist trash, but does have a few redeeming features, one of which is that he wasn't born into money and actually did work for 20 odd years in normal jobs before entering politics.

    He has done well, but part of me wonders how someone born into a slum with no apparent connections or family, rises to become Home Secretary. If he has done that on his own merit, then that's an incredible feat.

    One major part of the reason Labour are so hated is because of that lying deceitful cunt Johnsons 13 years in govt.
    He is a remainer wanker, who has been up for overturning the referendum result ... he never once spoke up against Labours bizarre brexit stance prior to the exit poll. Now it seems all these remainer wankers were against it all along.
    This traitorous cunt who've you've been taken in by never once tried to stop the unlimited immigration from the EU in his time in govt. he never once said a thing.

    How can you say he got caught up with Blairs schemes when he was fully behind them. He was 100% a Blairite hence his multiple roles in cabinet. 
    Nothing at all old fashioned about him ... just another neoliberal traitor who is quite happy to fuck the working classes over, then claim to be on their team.
    If you or Spyguy wish to post links where when in power he has spoken up about mass immigration from the EU being bad for British workers and that it should be stopped ... or that QE, ZIRP is pricing families out of owning a place to live in, and it was wrong of his govt to use this to bail out the rich ... and this is a major reason for so called populism and the ever increasing gap between workers and the asset owners .... that leaving the EU would be good for the working class etc etc...
    There were Labour politicians who got caught up in Blairs evil schemes, such as Galloway Short ... they resigned.

    When Corbyn said the MSM gave him a very bad press it was just put down as excuses excuses.
    There is something in it though.  
    Foot and Kinnock got rotten press coverage.  No chance of winning - although when Kinnock's coverage improved he came close - helped by Major's lacklustre coverage.
    Blair/NuLabour got very favourable coverage - Won.
    Brown poor press - Lost.
    Farage - Good press for the eu elections - Good result.
    Farage - Not much press for national elections - eu success not repeated (accepted that the different electoral systems makes a big difference as well).
    There are other examples.
    It is an influential factor and if you don't have the MSM on your side then it's an uphill battle.
    Of course in that regard Corbyn was easy to target with his links to terrorists etc
