These comments – neither by Owl – on an article by Parish (see below, today) pretty much nail it!
“1. Neil, why have you deliberately not mentioned building suitably priced housing, so that young local families can still live in the small towns and villages in which their families reside? You are just making sure that any houses built within 10 miles of your over priced country pile, doesn’t devalue your property.
2. Another MP making noises in anticipation of the autumn parlimentary disaster, won’t save your seat when it all hits the fan.”
