Let’s build houses where no one wants to live!
That appears to be the result of the National Plan from the Green New Deal group. Of which, of course, Ritchie is a member:
The UK’s increasingly bottom-heavy economy and jobs market (The great migration south: four out of five private sector jobs now created in London, 27 January) demands policies that will benefit the whole of the country. It was to tackle this growing north-south divide while helping protect the environment that the Green New Deal Group recently published a National Plan for the UK.
This calls for a £50bn-a-year green infrastructure programme, funded by a crackdown on tax-dodging and green quantitative easing, to make every building in the country energy-efficient and to build hundreds of thousands of new, affordable, sustainably sited, energy-efficient homes. Such a “jobs in every constituency” approach would create employment, business and investment opportunities in every city, town, village and hamlet in the country.
So everyone wants to live in the south, far from the lands of barms, and so the solution is to build lots of houses where no one wants to live.
I wonder what system of propizkas is proposed to make people live in these new houses?
