Yes all aboard the gravy train as 'social landlords' now carry out a social cleansing acting on behalf of the tory government battering tenants into submission to take low paid zero hour type jobs just so the rent gets paid; but really hoping for some tax to be paid into the system to feed the upper chain at the SSP club.

The programme really highlighted what is going on here and government are allowing it. But of course, their argument would be that these `off shore` buyers are paying their taxes, so they can do nothing. :sick: As for the greed merchants who are bulldozing social properties to land grab and build luxury homes that none are ever going to go to affordable renting is sickening. It`s social cleansing however we see it.

Did not watch last nights Programme will get it on "Catch Up" Later, But did spot this News report from New Zealand who have stopped Foreign people from Buying Property inside New Zealand.

New Zealand homes ‘no longer for sale’ to foreigners
Published time: 25 Oct, 2017

Foreigners will soon not be allowed to buy existing homes in New Zealand as the country is facing a housing affordability crisis due to soaring property prices.

"We have agreed on banning the purchase of existing homes by foreign buyers," said Prime Minister-elect Jacinda Ardern, adding the ban only applied to non-residents.

A bill to ban purchases will be introduced by Christmas, she said, also announcing plans to slash immigration and focus on regional development and job creation.

Strong immigration, low interest rates, and limited housing supplies have propelled New Zealand house prices in recent years.

Foreign ownership and a housing shortage were among the major issues in the lead-up to the September 23 election which brought an end to nine years of rule by the conservative National Party.

Ardern, who campaigned on social issues including housing affordability and improved healthcare, has described capitalism as a “blatant failure.”

"There is going to be a change, and a clear signal sent internationally that New Zealand is no longer for sale in the way it has been. We're happy with that," said Winston Peters, the leader of the populist New Zealand First party whose support is crucial for Ardern to form a ruling coalition in the 120-seat parliament.

I watched it but knew before I did it would make my blood boil and sure enough it did, ba--ards.

What made me feel very angry was labours Emily Thornberry who had bought an ex council property, hypocrite, and also one in the same street for HER brother !
F--k me with a broad end of a lighthouse I said they are all in to it.
You just cant trust a human being any more.

If you ever see labour going on about ethnic housing clearing just remember Emily Thornberry and her brother.

Tonight`s Dispatches is called - "Homeless & Working". Nice of the Tories to cause all this through the sales of social homes and allowing the greed merchants to cash in while others struggle to afford a roof over their heads because private landlords now own most of them. This should be PRIORITY for any government, yet we barely hear a peep about it in the house of commons or on the news apart from Shelter or some other organisation making the headlines usually around Christmastime when the colder weather is upon us.

Straight after Dispatches is Dave Fishwick, a man who fought the big-wigs to open his own bank and not take NO for an answer. Tonight, he gives people some tips about how to make money! If we need a laugh after watching Dispatches, Dave will no doubt provide it.
