Want to know why you won’t inherit your parents’ house? Here’s Gary Stevenson

Last Updated: February 22, 2024By Tags: , , , , , , ,

For sale: older people are selling their homes to pay for care in later life – to rich people who can afford them. Younger people can’t afford to get on the housing ladder (other estate agents are available).

Gary Stevenson’s appraisal of why people don’t get to inherit houses and can’t buy them is nothing more than accurate observation of trends in society.

Your parents think you can afford to buy a house because they could afford to buy theirs – so they sell theirs to pay for care in their twilight years. Meanwhile, you can’t afford to buy a house because they have become much more expensive and your generation is poorer than theirs.

The reason for that is, money is being drawn up, away from the poor and the middle-class towards the rich.

His solution to this is correct too, as far as This Writer is concerned.

Taxation has long been acknowledged as a way of re-balancing standards of living; it is only over the last few decades of neoliberalism that this has been abandoned in favour of shrinking state services to force us into buying inferior privatised rubbish instead.

All we need is a government that is willing to use taxation for the good of society as a whole, rather than the enrichment of the few.

It won’t be a Conservative government, or a Labour government under Keir Starmer.

But it is possible to have such a government after the next general election.

All you have to do is engage your brain when considering the policies of the candidates in your constituency.
