    Rant Alert! Who should get the landlord vote?

    I agree with you 100%

    Vote NOTA - None of The Above!

    The only party you can trust not to BS you as soon as the election result is in.

    Much as I feel like a protest vote with the Brexit Party, voting for a one-policy-wonder party is not good.

    that depends on their one policy. for the moment there is only 1 issue so 1 policy is enough.

    However, being realistic, even if the Brexit Party won the MEP election how would this change the MayBot and the Withdrawal Agreement?  Would we be destined for a WTO exit or will the MPs' Revoke the Article 50 Bill ?

    All I know is this.

    Let's say I had a worst enemy.

    Someone I had disliked for decades.

    In fact not disliked, but really couldn't stand.

    Then, to make things worse, said enemy decides to key my car, run off with my wife and burn down my house.

    Even after all of that, I would vote for him in an election rather than Jeremy Corbyn.

    I’ll vote Corbyn when you can find me an episode of Morse where,

    he power slides the Jag into the curb playing firestarter at full pelt, jumps out clutching a glass of babycham and brandy, runs up to Lewis declaring undying love and proposes.

    Given this is the EU elections we're talking about, the landlord vote isn't really an issue. All parties have essentially declared it a single-issue election and an unofficial second referendum, and all but one party has been very clear on where they stand on Brexit. I have read most of the junk which comes through the door and this is where each of them stand:

    Conservatives: vote for us if you back Brexit and support Theresa May's deal.

    Brexit Party: vote for us if you back Brexit  but not Theresa May's deal (be aware this actually means a No-deal Brexit, but they are trying to collect people who support a deal but not the Mayday deal).

    Change UK: vote for us if you support a second referendum and will respect the result even if it does not fall your way.

    Lib Dems/Greens/SNP: vote for us if you want to stay in Europe.

    Labour: Vote for us if you want a schitzophrenic, rudderless party where 98% of the members want to remain in the EU but calls itself a Brexit party because it's leader favours leaving.


    No single party is polling above about 30% at the moments and it is looking like the combined votes of Conservative/Brexit won't achieve any more than about 45%. However, the Pro-remain party's combined votes won't achieve more than 50% either because the Labour Party faithful will vote for them because they are Labour. As a prima facie second referendum it won't reveal whether the country majority wants stay or go, although Nigel will claim victory anyway. All it will tell us is that the Conservatives have destroyed themselves through bad management and bad, well, everything - something we don't need an election to tell us.

    some conservatives have already recognised that 2 million landlords (and voters in their families) are upset with their policies, and when you add the Brexit backlash, the Conservatives will be cut down drastically.

    Peter that is the first time I have seen written something sencable from the Conservatives

    Its just a shame such common sense could not be seen by the Tories in Parliament

    Reading this just shows how the root and branch Tories are not being listened to

    For the Tories to win the next election they have some real work to do

    A good direction would be stop fighting with business and I mean small business which includes us

    The Tories have to go back to the center and leave the left to others

    I dont think they will listen in time to win an election

    They have to lose to win again

    The governement is in a p1551ng contest with labour over the prs, its seen as a vote winner, is so disparate as to be very difficult to control. If they can persuade/force all landlords that have only 1 or 2 properties out of the industry, the prs becomes much easier to control, added benefits will be the capital gains receipts and vast sums of money going into peoples pockets, some of which will be spent or placed in more regulated investments. Boosting other sectors.

    I’ve emailed and visited my mp over the prs and selective licensing in particular several times, i get -that he understands my concerns, that i must understand there are poor landlords, that the protection of tenants is paramount, i should make whatever commercial decisions i feel fit. Not a word of support or any interest in taking up my invitation to visit my properties and walk the surrounding streets to see the obvious problems.

    2 million landlords and their families and 4.5 million households in the prs, which vote would you go for. Landlords aren’t going to vote labour for the most part. So each is only a vote lost ( not labours gain) but if you can get a tenant to vote tory and not labour its a double win.

    which would you target? All very well talking about homelessness etc, but this disproportionately affects those on societies bottom rungs at which level ( especially if homeless) they have much greater problems than going to vote , if they are even on the electoral role.

    Its all about gaining/keeping power, they’ll say whatever they think will get it for them. They can always back track after “consultations” at a later date.

    politics has always been an unpleasant dirty business, its just now with brexit that its come to the fore.

    It would appear that landlords are turning their backs on the Conservatives.

    A poll by the NLA found only one in six (15.75 per cent) landlords now say they would support the Tories in an election.
