    1. Are you serious? The government hasn't made affordable houses for the majority of the UK: houses are too expensive to buy/rent, home ownership is down yet we have more than enough room to build these houses. (10% of England's land is developed). This isn't to do with the population, its due to the lack of housing.

    2. How does it? I am making a point and your trying to make me come up with facts that I don't agree with.
    1) If you increase the demand for housing (through population increase) what happens to house prices?

    2) I asked you to name a benefit the UK receives from the UK, to offset the fact we are house 10,000 Eastern Europeans per year! You were the one that said to receive we have to give. So what do we receive?

    You have just admitted the idea behind the EU is to steal money from the UK and redistribute it to Eastern Europe! Redistributing British money to make Britain poorer and Eastern EU countries wealthier?
    Maybe if Britain and the Allies didn't sell out Eastern Europe to the Russians after WWII, this wouldn't be even a problem in the first place. Everyone would be pretty much equal economically. This isn't technically fair, but... as they say, karma is a b**ch.

    Also, what is it about Eastern Europeans that everybody has a go at them? Nobody throws a fit if you donate to charity for poorer countries, but as soon as it's Eastern Europe, it's automatically wasted money? What kind of logic is that?

    The EU budget isn't some mythical money tree, the money comes from member countries. So if other countries are receiving more money than us- its our money they're receiving! You have just admitted the idea behind the EU is to steal money from the UK and redistribute it to Eastern Europe!
    yeah I did, because thats the whole idea of the EU? We also receive more trade from the EU than Eastern European countries but are you crying about that?

    How much we give is nothing compared to our GDP as I have said before, as we have more money than these countries, we can afford to give more.

    1. If you increase the amount of homes built, what happens to house prices? Population shouldn't be an issue and the Government should be able to deal with something that is going obviously happen (population increase)

    2. As i have said before, look at my previous post in which I told you the benefits we receive.

    All the housing problems started with the Tories selling off hundreds of thousands of council houses in the 1980s and 90s and not building new ones.

    A lot of ex council houses are now being rented out by private landlords costing the taxpayer billions in housing benefit.

    Tory supporters are stupid if they complain about lack of housing because its their fault

    Interesting as I know someone in an identical situation who was rehoused almost immediately
    As my brother's girlfriend has worked all her career in social housing , she hears this crap all the time. No non uk resident/national gets priority over a similar uk citizen .

    Those countries are free to trade, if they decide not to, thats their wish.

    I have applied to do both psychology and law as well as history and English. Psychology requires a good grade in both biology and maths which you could bear in mind.
    So don't go around volunteering my taxes go to Eastern Europe when its hardly any of your money going there!

    Well thats just how it is. If you can give her a house now and prove me wrong that would be amazing. She deserves it.

    1. The last time I checked land is finite.

    You say population increase is inevitable- Germany would disagree with you.

    2. No you didnt and then you bottled it and admitted if you answer you will contradict yourself. Have some decency and admit you are wrong.

    There was no housing shortage in the 90s, so how can it be because of supply-side in the 80s????

    The answer is simple- the demand for housing has increased due to immigration. Since 1997 we have received about 3.2 million immigrants, you think they havent increased the demand for housing?!?!?!

    1.Thats true, Germany has an ageing population, but we're not at that stage yet.

    2. Not really? what you were trying to make me say contradicts my point of view so why would I make up something I don't agree with?
