Boles – Brexit and Screwing up Planning and Housing will be the reasons if we lose Election

FT

Mr Boles, who has long advocated planning reform and more house building, also said that the Conservative government had so “completely failed to get to grips with the housing crisis” it may cost the party the next general election. “[If we lose the next election] the two biggest reasons will be one, that we will have basically screwed up Brexit and the second will be that we’ve failed on housing. Those will be the two hammer blows that will push us into opposition.”

 

One thought on “Boles – Brexit and Screwing up Planning and Housing will be the reasons if we lose Election

  1. Which sections of the electorate are actually going to consider the planning system to be the issue, as opposed to the government’s dogged refusal to help councils invest in a national social housing building programme? Certainly not me.
    Boles is being disingenuous as ever, given that as a minister in DCLG he advocated ‘a little chaos in the planning system’. I believe that was double speak for, let’s have a fee for all, so ‘we’ can all cash in.
