From yesterday's Evening Standard:
Richard Godwin is right about my golden-oldie generation having “the best of all worlds”. And we never had to go to war either. Of course most of us didn’t go to university and many began work at 16, so we have been in the world of work for more than half a century and chances are we no longer have a mortgage.
Laws that favour property ownership are embraced by the main parties, which lack any will for real change. The best we can do is downsize or take or some kind of equity release to get our children on the housing ladder, but that means our privileges are handed down, perpetuating inequality.
