Why you can’t afford a home in the UK: from New Economics Foundation

Aside Posted on

Published on Apr 21, 2016

We should all be able to afford a home in an area we want to live. But for many of us in the UK, with prices spiralling way beyond incomes, this isn’t a reality.

Instead, finding somewhere to live can often feel like a game.

Why is this? And who are we actually playing against?

This video tells the story of the UK housing affordability crisis, explains why prices keep on rising, and offers a way out of the unsustainable mess.

DERBY AND BELPER PROTESTS against RAIL FARE RISES AND CALL FOR PUBLIC OWNERSHIP ON TUESDAY 16 AUGUST

Belper Rail station – 07:45 – 08:15
Derby Rail station – 16:30 – 18:00

On Tuesday 16 August the government will announce yet another hike in our rail fares, but services are often late, overcrowded and under-staffed. Passengers and taxpayers are being asked to pay an ever increasing price for the failures of rail privatisation.
While fares keep rising, cuts to services and staffing are taking place across the network – with more ticket offices closing, removal of guards from trains, extension of driver only operations and fewer staff at stations to provide help when we need it. We’re paying more, but getting less.

Action for Rail is organising a day of action on 16 August . This is being supported by the Peoples Assembly, Momentum, Derby Climate Coalition and Derby Unite Community branch, as well as the Rail unions.
