    No, it needs to remove the many costs it layers on to the cost of producing housing (now estimated to be almost one third of the price of a new house). That is what "increasing supply" actually means in economics.


    But Socialists don't like that. They hate the idea of producing goods at the price people can afford - because they lose control over other people's choices and lives.

    Having people living in flats really is a shocking waste, isn't it?

    Those flats are people's homes, people who have lived in them for decades. And you'd just 'churn' them out? Bastard.

    Meanwhile REITs have had a bumper year renting out apartments they bought for a song to a population in need of accommodation.

    Thanks FG.
    How long will it take for the apologists to come on here claiming you are wrong because of x,y and z and perhaps with a little...implementation/execution lag time bolloxology.

    The only frvcking lag is the FG footdragging.

    No one who lives in a flat works and pays rent......

    All flats in the South inner city are owned by the 'Corpo'......

    That is all you need to know about this thread ........
