Yes @Fire but the available housing stock is mostly away from the high pressure areas of the south east which is why it's sort of good that the government is moving some departments oop north. There also needs to be a lot more imaginative thinking about converting old buildings - factories, office blocks etc - to housing rather than demolishing them - so much waste and carbon release too.

There are far more old people than there used to be, and the number is likely to continue rising.Everyone has to pay, pensioners can no longer say we have paid all our lives, why should we pay now [ I speak as someone in receipt of a pension ]Progressive taxation seems the only fair way to me, and far stiffer penalties for tax evasion.
