Comrade Corbyn to the fore - whither (or wither) the Labour Party?

If you read the comments on the Guardian the big elephant is ignored or given to whataboutry.
Immigration has pushed the price up and the available property down. Letting in eye watering amounts without upgrading the infrastructure leads to problems all over.

Labour brought that about, it also allowed 100% to a reckless 125% mortage. That really pushed the bubble up along with buy to let mortgages in the early 2000's.
But hey wrong type of Labour. I'm just sick of Labour bullshit on all levels.


As an aside I found a Labour supporter label herself "babycham socialist" either very accurate or another Labour twonk.
Spot on. And it was Labour that allowed rampant bad practice in the city, then didn't act soon enough or right enough to head off the disastrous crash.
 
We need to restore the principle that a decent home is a right owed to all, not a privilege for the few.
Restore, seems to be a recurring theme in much of Labour talk. I would like to know when this principle was current. Prior to WW2 most lived in rented homes including much of the middle class. A number of months ago we had the BBC show about the life of a house through about two hundred years which showed that although it was owned by some person much of it was rented out to others. Following WW2 we had the massive building of council housing or the purchase of large amounts of private rental houses. At that time it was very difficult to get a council house as you needed to show you were in work and of good character.

A number of you tube films.
1935

1971 You bastards you got rid of our lovely slum and gave us this.


Or the barbican, estates without cars. 1960s

In Jeremy's defence, in the 60s he was living in a large detached house in a rural setting with his own bedroom and generous garden, whereas now he he's in a shitty little semi in a grotty London suburb and has had to share with a succession of people, including at present a foreigner.

One imagines he has to squat or sit on the floor because he can't find a seat anywhere...
 
I would have thought Squatting would be right up his Marxist, Power to the people style.

Absolutely bang on. I have had several rants in various threads about this subject and the contention about people in the UK being in 'poverty'. Complete, utter and absolute balderdash and codswallop.

I know hard hard it was making ends meet in a working class council estate in Aberdeen from 1957 when I was born (3 teenage boys in 1 bedroom). I know my parents had things a darn sight tougher than I did and their parents tougher than that, plus war etc.

Likewise. Poverty then meant second hand or home made clothes and toys, outside toilets, electricity downstairs only, no telephone or fridge and very little to eat. Today it means an out of date iphone and a small plasma tv.

Many SJWs have careers and speaking fees based on poverty continuing. The definition changes accordingly.

Paradise.

My family of 6 lived in a garden shed on the edge of a disused mine's slag heap. We use to have to break this discarded rock with our bare feet for 10 hours everyday on end, just to get enough coal dust to heat our weekly meal of potato peel boiled in puddle water

If we are living in such dire and abject poverty why does about half the human race want to move here, hide in the backs of lorries, walk the Channel Tunnel and sail in home made rafts?

What, my butler forgot to iron my copy of The Times this morning, that bloke Jeremy or what ever his name is is right, we are going down the tubes.
 
Poverty is not smoking 40 a day while watching Jeremy Kyle on a 50 inch telly with surround sound and drinking Stella.

"relative poverty". Defined so it can never be solved.
