The Help to Buy scheme, has also something of a Help to Sell Expensively flair about it.

Sir, Janan Ganesh opines that “Britain’s flawed Help to Buy scheme is smart politics”, November 12. And this because it allows the Tories, to “connect with the many young to middle age voters priced out of the housing market”.

Yeah, yeah, that is as long as no one informs those many young to middle age voters that they are priced out of the housing market, precisely because of this type of assistance.

Was the government not helping or hindering with permits the housing market in any way, houses could actually be quite affordable. As is, it looks more like a diabolical design to help aging baby boomers get rid of assets, at great prices, sticking those to the generations after them.
