GUY NEWS: Ed Isn’t Listening to a Word His Gurus Say

First David Axelrod destroys Ed’s flagship energy price freeze by saying controls will lead to blackouts, now Lord Glasman offers his advice on rent caps:

“We’ve really got to get out of this idea that capping something is going to solve a long-term structural problem.”

It’s almost as if Ed only listens to those around him who never tell him he’s wrong…

        As I have said before: when Gordon Brown Stuff stole the pensions of millions of hardworking, tax paying savers many gave up on private pensions & switched to buy to let to ensure they wouldn’t be welfare dependent in old age.

        Now the Son of Gordon wants to punish these people too.

        Only the rich can afford to vote Labour. Responsible middle England that does not want to become dependent on the State will have to go elsewhere.

          I lived through rent controls. To say they did not work is an understatement.

          The supply of property for rent dried up giving rise to Rachmanism ie the rental of poor property badly maintained and crimanally operated.

          At the same time decent smaller landlords became impoverished as they waited for the tenants to die in order to reclaim their properties. Many were simply forced out of their invetments.

          Meanwhile those in council houses got a raw deal, again because of lack of maintenance: th unions ans maintenance groups had a vice like grip on maintenance and corruption was rife – the rawest deal of all was for the ratepayer.

          One of the reasons BTL has become so popular is that Brown and the banks and institutions among themselves ruined the IK pensions system. They d-e regulated lending completely which sent house prices sky high, and allowed unlimited EU regulation and, at the top end, property and land purchase, thus Brown, Balls & Co fueled the house price boom and continually pour petrol on the flames.

        Protecting hard pressed tax-payer by selling the BBC it off in bits, to the highest bidder – wherever they come from? Is not that the same as ripping off the tax payer by getting rid of state assets (they paid for) to spivs and speculators in the City?

        “The Business Secretary, Vince Cable, has repeatedly insisted that the handful of key investors offered Royal Mail shares on preferential terms were long- term institutional investors. This was to ensure the new company started with “a core of high- quality investors” who “would be there in good times and bad”. He promised to marginalise “spivs and speculators”. But sources in the Department for Business have confirmed to that around 20 per cent of the shares it had allocated to 16 preferred investors had gone to hedge funds and other short- term investors.”

    How can anyone, let alone a minister of state not worry that a bank that is advising him of the sale price, is also going to buy shares at that price. Lizards (to give them their proper name) had valued the shares well below any other bank who was advising the government. Moreover, 300 p was on the lower scale of the advice, with some advisers going well above 500 p which is what it ended up as.
    And how can someone like Cable, be so naive as to just accept a “gentlemanly agreement” that the preferred buyers are not going to sell off the shares quickly to make a mint?

    I was thinking the other day that Thatcher appealed to many ordinary young voters because she gave them the hope of home ownership and betterment. Its difficult to see what Cameron is offering those same demographic of voters?

    Well done Labour. You’re finally talking to me.

    Vulnerable people shouldn’t be subject to the arbitrary “letting fees” (£200 or more) or the greedy agencies.

    It’s already illegal in Scotland.

    I couldn’t believe it when I heard Dan had suggested on Twitter that I could do a better job than Ed Milibands current strategy team.
    Now it appears that even Ed miliband thinks he’d do a better job than Ed Milibands strategy team.
    Fuck me this strategy team must be really shit.

    I am appalled by the Tories’ response to Miliband’s eminently sensible policy. When a perfectly legitimate proposal to deal with a serious social problem is met with immature howls of derision, I can only despair as public discourse in this country descends closer to that of the USA (where I am also a citizen).

      I agree most of the left wing wonk ideas do come from America says:

      Ed miliband was in government when average house prices started to massively outstrip average earnings way back in 2002.
      Even after another full term in office up to 2010 his government did bugger all to stop the bubble or to build houses to mitigate it.
      My howls of derision are out of disbelief at the cheek of this twat to pretend he gives a fuck now.

      most on here don’t work or pay tax – they are all above that sort of thing – so suggestions about dealing with the housing crisis are met with the usual – but you can’t take free money off me because i’m rich propaganda – remember the idle rich make this country what it is

    I wonder if Richard Benyon Tory MP is against any controls on landlords. It is estimated he gets £625,000 from his tenants housing benefits despite being a critic of the welfare state – although as any reasonable person knows, housing benefit is really a payment to the landlords.
    Also I have known buy-to-let people who have been told to raise rents 5% a year, even though no increase in costs, historic low interest rates courtesy of the Government and taxpayers, loads of tax advantages paid for by all taxpayers, capital growth and wage inflation so low (even lower for most people than figure quoted by ONS). This is just pure greed.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
