The screams of anguish from the Property Speculators continue to fill our news headlines.
The Green Party’s housing spokesperson says landlords are crying “crocodile tears” after a year of amazing capital gains and falling mortgage interest rates.
And the landlords are promising brutal rent rises to punish all those renters who are dancing and laughing at their pain…
Landlords who threaten to raise rents as a result of the Government’s new housing plan are being “disingenuous”, an investor says, and they should accept housing as a public good – not a product.
Property speculators are just like Casinos, booze barons and tobacco pimps – they are all necessary evils who require the jackboot of State regulation constantly applied to their throats to keep them in line.
Just like Drug Cartels.
Fuck the greedy speculator landlords!
This is what the political muscle of Gen X + Gen Y being larger than the Boomer voter block looks like.
Now we have to take the greedy speculator landlords at face value, they will try and punish renters which is why renters need more urgent protections like rent freezes and permanent tenancies.
This is just the start.
The reckoning is coming.
