Re; Richard Spring MP discovers that homeownership is at a ten year low.

Just goes to show how detached MPs are. The issue facing first-time-buyers is not house prices trebling in 10 years to their highest point in history and unprecedented salary multiples. No. The problem is stamp duty and HIPs. Hmm.

He must be more concerned with the value of his taxpayer subsidised property portfolio to realise what's really going on with housing. Or maybe not

Any thoughts Iain?

Nope, you're on there too, as are other blogs.

Guido is just try to big himself up a bit!

Hey - I'll do the marathon - though I'm not saying anything about the speed I will do it in.

Speaking as a liberal, it's essential that homeownership is extended as wide as possible. Those who cannot afford should be provided with social housing. But, short of descending into irresponsibility and encouragement of debt, more people should be taking posessions of their own.
