England’s Housing Crisis

housing

This week is the Conservative Party conference and one of the main topics discussed by delegates and the media alike, is the housing crisis currently affecting the United Kingdom – in reality, it is only England that is suffering from this issue at present. The Tories, of course, are quick to blame the Labour Party for their housing policy between 1997-2010, however the former are not doing much to tackle the problem themselves. It seems that the answer to this problem is always the same, regardless of whether you’re a conservative or a socialist or a Green Party affiliate – they all want to build more houses! They talk about targets for building new homes, that we should aim to build 150,000 or 200,000 or 300,000 new houses per year to deal with the issues we face. In fact, earlier this year the Tories relaxed laws surrounding Green Belt land, enabling more houses to be built over our beautiful English countryside.

But the mainstream political parties, the Tories, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and even UKIP to some extent, simply don’t wish to address the root cause of our housing crisis, which is of course, overpopulation. We have too many people in England, making the task of housing them and ensuring that housing is affordable, almost impossible. As of 2013, the population of England was 53.01 million, with population density sitting at an eye-watering 419 people per sq/km. England has overtaken the Netherlands to become the most densely populated nation in Europe. It is strange that in 1997, when the Labour Party took power, the population density of England was down at 374 – between then and now, the fertility rate of English women has been consistently below 2 children per family, therefore the only explanation of the population growth and therefore the increase in density, is immigration. It is estimated that there are only 37.5 million ethnically English people living in England, meaning that up to 16 million people living in the nation are immigrants or immigrant descended.

This is important because it all centres around one issue: the cost of housing.

House prices are an interesting issue. The establishment like to make out that house prices are an anomaly in the world of economics and that the extortionate amount that even the slightest of homes now cost is some natural occurrence – this is totally bogus. Houses, like all other commodities that can be bought or sold, are subject to the fundamental rule of any market, that of supply and demand. When the supply is higher than the demand, prices fall, & visa versa. For many years now, we have been in a ‘housing crisis’ and for many years, house prices have increased dramatically out of line with inflation. Since 1983, house prices in England have risen by 428% (559% in London), whilst inflation over the same time period equates to 236%. The problem here is clear: housing is becoming less and less affordable as wages often do not even rise in line with inflation, let alone at the rate house prices do. Thanks to the forces of international finance and the shady figures that control it, house prices have been artificially increased by the social engineering of mass-immigration – increasing the demand increases the price of what is being supplied, which coincidentally benefits the globalist-types who hold their millions in property portfolios and the like.

This is where the establishment have got it all wrong. They insist on playing cat and mouse with the forces controlling mass migration and population increase, by constantly rushing to build more houses even though they can never build quickly enough to slow the massive price inflation. They are attempting to increase the supply to match the demand, even though the demand can never be met as it is constantly increasing at a faster rate.

The answer is to reduce demand, thereby removing the need for an increase in supply. This can be done by tackling our immigration problem and can be done in a way that is beneficial on many levels to both the English people and ultimately, the immigrant and immigrant-descended population too. Whilst an unpalatable proposition to many, what we must do is attempt to engineer the repatriation of those who have come here or who’s parents/grandparents have come here (or rather, have been brought here). Immigrants have been used as pawns by the forces of globalism, tricked into believing England is the promised land which for them, it can never be. This particular point will be addressed in more depth in a later article.

If we were to be successful in reducing the population of the nation by even just a few million, this would ease the strains on the housing market significantly. If the tables can be turned so that there is a surplus of housing, just watch as the profiteers of our misery squirm at their decline in revenue – all of a sudden, they cannot profit from the indignity of cramped living conditions, they cannot profit from the turmoil of those on waiting lists and, they cannot profit from the rent culture that has emerged in the 21st century. The ideal to aim for is a situation whereby every English family that works hard and contributes to society is able to buy (not rent, buy) their own home at an affordable price, free from massive debts and extortionate interest rate mortgages.

Of course, we also have the issue of living conditions which have been briefly alluded to already. England builds the smallest new homes by square metre in all of Europe (85 sq/m), well below the average and also below the recommended size for comfortable and healthy living. This is because the profiteers of the housing crisis know they can sell cramped housing for a high price and the English people are in no position to complain. This must stop and it will, but there are too many homes in the country that are simply not fit for purpose. The high-rise flats and the ‘modern housing’ that have sprung up in the cities in the last few decades must be torn down and their residents allowed to ‘size up’, as it were, to a more dignified situation. This can only be done when there is a supply surplus in the housing market. It is proven that cramped living conditions can lead to physical illnesses such as asthma and can contribute to the spread of contagious disease, as well as increase the likelihood of mental ailments such as depression and therefore, an increase in the risk of suicide.

Yes, the solutions are radical, but this is the task we face. The worse a problem is allowed to get, the more extreme the solution must be to rectify it. The blame lays at the feet of those who have furthered the crisis in the first instance, the establishment, but also the shameless profiteers of the crisis who finance the mortgages and building of rip-off property. But clearly, it is not an impossible situation.
