    Oh yea sorry

    We just have to try your special brand of Communism that has never been tried

    If it turns out like all the rest, we can always try again xD




    You want an example of an Anarchist society? there is none, because it's all hippy daydreaming. You think a world without Borders, a police force, laws are a good thing? xD

    I'm sure ISIS and Putin would love that, they would crush your little hippy commune within a day.
    Well of course it’s utopian - Communism is a utopian ideology. My “special brand” of Communism is actual communism. I think that is the end goal of humanity - for the moment I want true Socialism.

    The private sector is heavily constrained in the amount of new homes it can construct by the state via control of the planning system. I haven't seen anything to suggest that there is a cartel operating between various housing developers.
    Builders buy up land with planning permission but don't build on them until they can get a high price enough for houses built on it. its called land banking and it reduces the number of houses built and keeps the prices high. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...is-landbanking

    For a start, where to?

    Secondl I was born in England and lived here all my life. Same with my parents who have paid millions and millions of pounds in tax.

    Thirdly, are you happy to see the eradication of the countryside? Until everywhere and every piece of greenery has a house on it?
    Your parents payed millions and millions of tax?

    Bloody hell, the life you must lead.

    Because your local estate agents has houses for sale (the fundamental purpose of the business) there is no housing crisis. Top logic :rofl:

    Then these non-poor people take a mortgage out and then they take years to pay it back if you can't just pay the full price then I'm sorry you're not rich

    It is a harsh, but fair point. The irony being that it is no longer just poor people complaining about it, but fairly well-to-do middle class people who have generally had a sense of entitlement to their own abode but are now generally denied.

    Personally I find it rather repulsive that housing is more about a financial investment than somewhere to live. And we no longer talk about housing. It is property.

    It's pretty unlikely your parents have paid 'millions and millions' in tax. There would still be a need for more houses even if you deported everyone who wasn't born here

    People lie about lots of things for no apparent reason. Most people never even come close to paying £1m in tax so paying £4m in tax is very unlikely

    But not impossible then by your own admission?, so please stop running your mouth in attempt to accuse me of deception. My parents have paid millions of pounds in tax, and that's the truth. Whether it's unlikely or not, is irrelevant.

    Well of course not impossible just highly improbable. What do your parents do if you don't mind me asking?

    There is no housing crisis. If there were enough property for everyone then it would take away an incentive to work hard. There have to be winners and losers in the system for it to work and with regards to housing the homeless are the "losers". That's the way it is, and that's the way it should be. Crisis my a**.
