We see here at first hand the problem with many who use their media platform without deeper research. Little, or no, experience (outside of a non-nuanced book) of the core reasons we have so many private Landlord's in the first place. Most landlords became such from the mid-nineties onwards - a direct resultant effect of the failure to protect private pensions. With fraud too easy to commit, and the rich able to screw with an individual's future, public confidence in pensions was devastated. The normal, average, hard working, prudent working person turned other means to secure their future. Many put their savings into bricks and mortar... and forewent the luxuries that everyone today (including Charlotte no doubt) enjoy and take for granted. There are those landlords who have made millions, just like other prudent investors in every other walk of life! Most Landlord's have NOT though become millionaires and that narrative is never at the forefront of the discussion. All we hear is the slur and demonisation of decent fully compliant long term Landlords (decent people), 99% of whom support the creation of homes and futures for society, performing a duty that this country's consecutive governments have failed in. Not just the governments fault when they have to pander to PERCEIVED public opinion on a 5 year rotation. That's another topic, nevertheless an important one to consider. How can the UK have cohesive housing plan if its not a 'ring fenced' long term all party collective? It can't. Personally I find the naivety of Charlotte Gill disturbing... and her anti-landlord narrative nothing short of disgusting! Most young people when I were in my 20's didn't moan, weren't self entitled, didn't begrudge, and weren't hell bent on destroying the lives of the older generations. They just got on with it, got their heads down and saw older financial successful people as a yard-stick for themselves. So sorry Charlotte, but if you really want to be constructive, you need to take your head out of the sand (I'm being polite), adopt a more nuanced approach and engage with all Landlords. You would likely get the real picture of the security good Tenants (decent people too!) are afforded. Perhaps then you will stop this negative virtue signalling! Conservatives need our votes too. You should remember that. Happy New Year to all!
