Earlier this week at the Landlord Investment Show, the big headline panel debate, billed as "Brexit Fireworks" turned into "Election Fireworks"!I caught up with property developer and Ipswich Conservative Association Chairman, John Howard, to discuss which party is worthy of the landlords' vote:
The Conservative lead has dropped to 11 points, according to the first poll conducted by YouGov for Sky News.
The poll taken yesterday and today cuts the Tory lead by two points compared to the weekend when it was 13 points, a small movement that could nevertheless unsettle Tory candidates.
Sky News/YouGov voting intention puts the Tories on 36%, Labour on 25%, Lib Dems on 17%, Brexit Party on 11%, Greens on 5% and SNP 4%, with Plaid Cymru on 1%.The most important thing this year, as we said in the interview, is to get out and cast your vote!

I have to disagree on Johnson being "sensible" for the economy.
He has a track record of wasting public money (eg questionable grants to friends, assorted London mayor projects that failed and fees for cancelled brexit contracts) and he's made numerous pledges to spend lots more (hospitals, police, brexit and others) without providing details on how they'll be funded.
If he's landlord friendly or not I suspect will depend on whether he decides he needs to try and win over renters votes. There are lots of them so it may well be an easy political gain to promise something to tenants and I'm sure Johnson will if he thinks it will help him.
In the current political climate I don't think any party is reliably "landlord friendly" but as others have said, that's propbably not the most important thing to consider!
