Let's All Go To Monbiot's

If you ever need reassuring that the green movement is populated by something other than looneyleft, you better look away now. In this morning’s Guardian George Monbiot advocates that the rich should have their homes forcibly opened up to solve housing shortages and those that refuse be punished:

“It needs to be researched, debated, fought over. It needs to turn political. I can understand why neither the government nor the opposition dares to think about it: none of the major parties wants to pick a fight with wealthy householders. So it’s up to us to give them no choice, by turning under-occupation into an issue they can’t avoid. It cannot be left to the market, as the market works for the rich.”

Guido would like to offer Monbiot’s country pile in Machynlleth, Wales to the public first. All together now… Let’s all go to Monbiot’s, let’s all go to Monbiot’s, la la la la…

UPDATE: Mark Wallace does the maths and Ed West at The Telegraph has given George two barrels – “New year, new fascist-egalitarian proposal from the Guardian”.
