Mrs Thatchers privatisation has pushed this country into escalating and continuous debt, utilities, etc, but the sale of local housing stock got people on housing ownership but the local authorities couldn't get new housing stock built as sites, financial assistance and legislation were barriers to replace the housing stock sold. It has created a rental shortage that is exploited by bad landlords and at exorbitant rents in a lot of cases, this in turn has made it harder for first timers to now get on the ownership ladder. If wages had risen at the same rate as house prices it's reckoned the average wage would be in the region of around £35 per hour.|
