Tim Fallon's Lib Dem housing plan

As the new leader of the Lib Dems, I can't imagine Tim Fallon will ever be in the position to carry out his plans, but just on the off chance of a miracle, Tim has just outlined his plans for housing at the Lib Dem conference.

"Housing is the biggest single issue that politicians don't talk about," 

"Well, we are going to talk about it, campaign on it, go on and on and on about it, and make a difference to the millions who have been ignored.

"Communities up and down this country have spent 25 years building housing association homes, picking up the pieces of Mrs Thatcher's destruction of council housing, and we will not allow David Cameron to destroy that work too."

Mr Farron is calling for Lib Dem peers to vote against the Governement's plan to enable housing association tenants access to the 'right to buy' scheme.

Other Lib Dem policies aimed at solving the housing shortage include:
  • Form a Gov-backed housing investment bank to finance new home building
  • Stop advertising of UK properties to overseas investors
  • Lift the borrowing cap on local authorities
  • Create ten new garden cities in England
