    Teresa May - housing market announcements

    The minority will always cause changes for the majority - it has happened many times before and will continue to happen to get ever more restrictive views/laws in place.

    Examples:

    1. Rogue LL's (the minority) cause changes in law to be made that affects good LL's (the majority). It also affects tenants as well.

    2. Someone (a minority) decides to try and blow up a plane with a large amount of liquid = the majority (all) plane travellers now can take no more than 100ml liquids.

    3. In the future, the minority of stupid drivers will make it easier for automated vehicles to become the majority because they don't cause the accidents that the minority cause.

    And that's just the current and one example of the future. All of them involve taking freedoms away because of a problem caused by a minority, not the majority.

    Why are robots being installed wherever possible in businesses? Because they have no rights, can be worked 24/7 and don't complain!

    I breathed a slight sigh of relief when I saw the contents of the announcement - since (at least for the PRS),

    it basically reiterated previous announcements rather than piling another big new one on top.

    DISCLAIMER just my personal opinion - for legal advice consult a qualified professional grown-up.

    What is needed is a National Housing Dept. This will deal with all aspects of housing, private rentals, housing associations, Local council housing needs, house building etc. Currently its just an add hoc mess trying to deal with housing problems as they arrive without any clear over view. What governments have failed and continue to fail is not understanding the social consequences of failed housing policy. This is a basic need for people - somewhere to live- and without it the whole fabric of society breaks down. Just what it happening now. We are entering dangerous times .
