It's almost tragic to watch some political parties trying to hold on to power at any cost. In some parts of the world when you buy a house you live in it – now that would solve a lot of problems. The situation that many do not seem to realise is people have to live somewhere if they cannot afford to buy. You, the taxpayer, will have to build houses for perhaps several hundred thousand people, because the greedy, not the needy, have housing speculation sewn up, aided by an unscrupulous government controlled by people who cannot spell humanity, and care less about it.
