The question is how long can this go on before things basically fall apart. The situation for the young is getting worse all the time. Private rental is increasing; home ownership is decreasing; the cost to the taxpayer of subsidising rents paid to private landlords is increasing. The young are thoroughly disillusioned and many do not want to be part of this crooked system, which exists solely to benefit the wealthy.
Many look at today's society and think, "There's no future for me here. I don't want to live all my life a slave in a job I hate and then die, because I won't even be able to retire the way things are going."
Our FPTP system ensures perpetual Tory rule, and we all know what their priorities are. Not those of the common man, that's for sure.
The whole game is rigged, and this country seemingly is yearning for a return to the Victorian era. All the while, economists warning of the perils of a growing wealth divide, and just about everyone talking about how unsustainable our current trajectory really is.
Going to be fun watching the whole thing unravel.
Alright lets turn this around why don't you think Labour have no policies about this? BTL tenants are more likely to be underprivileged and hence more likely to be labour voters, they aren't going to do anything about this system because it benefits them too. As soon as people become homeowners they automatically become Tory voters because you've removed dependency culture and introduced aspiration. It isn't going anywhere because it suits both sides too well.
