    Rant Alert! Who should get the landlord vote?

    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.
