Sadly my current mortgage provider is a victim of the EU Mortgage Directive. They will not be able to provide a remortgage deal for us in 2yr time.

But admitting over ten million migrants over the past ten years to the UK population certainly hasn't helped and has been a negative drain on UK infrastructure etc
There would be no housing crisis if immigration had been controlled
UKIP does not have ANY issue with migrants from WHEREVER they come from
They only wish for a controlled immigration policy accepting migrants from anywhere in the world just the policy that Australia has had in place for the past 65 years!!!
Uncontrolled mass immigration has had detrimental effects on the UK
Pointing out such is not blaming immigration per se
After all if all of a sudden 22000 doctors came from Romania to work in the NHS you would not have a peep from UKIP
They would be needed and would enter the UK as part of a controlled migration system
Of course the problem might be what about all the Romanians who may not have any doctors in their own country!?
Importing millions of trained immigrants from poor counties smacks of colonialism by the West stripping poor countries of their trained professionals
The UK should look to solving the migration problems by training the workers we need and not allow them to laze around on welfare
Why for example have we not been training enough GP's!!??
The UK should utilise its own population to satisfy its needs without having to rely on floods of immigrants to do jobs which can mostly be done by British nationals!
No they don't have a housing problem because they CAN control who enters the country
Oz is suffering as its national income which mostly comes from rare earths is having a major downturn as the Chinese have stopped importing
7 flights a day of FIFO workers used to fly out for the mines from Perth
Now this doesn't happen
Property prices have stopped increasing
Do you remember all those who attempted to reach Oz as alleged asylum seekers
They were assisted by by the Australian Coastguard to seek asylum in Papua, New Guinea
Once this occurred the asylum seekers wanted to be flown home to their countries once they knew they would not be allowed to enter Australia
A cynic might consider they may have been economic migrants!!!
I disagree with your analysis. Our housing crisis began in the 80's when local authorities (our biggest post war builder providing circa 50% of the UK's housing stock) were neutered, unable to borrow to build new stock and legally obliged to sell existing stock at less than replacement value.
Today reported in most newspapers it was estimated by the IFS that the chancellor has a 50% chance of producing a budgetary surplus in the life of this parliament. This is dependant on net migration. i.e the higher our net migration figure the more likely we are to balance the budget through increased tax receipts.
Ukip's entire issue is with immigration...That is the only issue on which they are all agreed. I remember an embarrassed farage having to distance himself from his own party's manifesto as it was so obviously loony.
I believe 35% of the NHS doctors are from abroad. They would go elsewhere if for example they were prevented from bringing spouses with them. On one issue I do agree with you. wouldn't it be great if we trained UK people to fill these tricky jobs...Sadly it takes 7 years to make a Doctor from a school leaver. There does not seem to be an appetite for investing in people en masse in this way and the pay off doesnt happen in a single parliament. Ukip are pro austerity right?
How would Brexit affect the UK property market??? Impossible to answer. I think the ££ would suffer which would exert upward pressure on interest rates, It would also make UK property appear cheaper to foreign money. The City would lose a lot of business to Frankfurt. Ireland would benefit from a lot of investment that would otherwise go to the UK (its English speaking, low corp tax rates + EU membership similar legal system and close by) its a no brainer.
Capital and investment can move incredibly quickly to wherever the best return is and has no interest in artificial borders. If Britain is not in the EU why have a car plant here? You'd be insane not to stick it in a newly minted EU country.
As a matter of principle and politics we would have to have some sort of EU trade deal there is no way on earth that the terms of that deal would be better than partnership.
