UK: Ed Miliband’s threat to confiscate unused land branded ‘Stalinist’

Ed Miliband lurched further to the Left yesterday with a land grab to extend state control over the property market.

The Labour leader’s ‘Stalinist’ plan to seize unused plots – as well as impose rent controls – shocked experts and investors.

Property analysts said the move would take Britain back to the ‘dark days of the Seventies’.

Mr Miliband wants to bring in ‘use it or lose it’ powers allowing councils to encourage building by putting up taxes on undeveloped land.

Sites still left idle could be compulsorily purchased for use by another developer…

    Apparently some on the left won’t be happy until every spare inch of the UK is built on to house Muslims and Africans.

    Let’s turn Britain into Bangladesh! Churchill is crying in his grave.

    “Listen, and understand. The vibrancy is out there.
    It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!”

      Vibrancy and cultural enrichment.

    Ed Miliband is full of…new…ideas! WOW!
    New rent-subsidized homes for tens of thousands of new Labour voters from Afghastlistan, Pakistan, Kurdistan, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and don’t forget the RETURNEES from ISIS who will train them in the art of Jihad!
    He will also need DOZENS of new JAILS for those guilty of ISLAMOPHOBIA which will be legislated to mean: Any criticism of Labour Party, Labour policies or Labour voters.
    Big Brother, Big Labour and Brave New World have arrived.
    You only need to vote for Ed Miliband ONCE!

    Perfect opportunity for rich developers to f*** over small landowners…

    Normal politicians keep the crazy stuff for after the election. Not Crazy Ed, though!

    Confiscate all property owned or assigned to the Labour Party since it is obviously not being used for the good of the people.
