On Byline Times: The failed Tory manifesto pledge that dashed the hopes of 200,000 first time buyers

Promised starter home? Pic credit; Money Which?

As the manifesto season gears up – a very timely report today from the National Audit Office. It reveals David Cameron’s 2015 manifesto pledge to build 200,000 homes for first time buyers has resulted in not a single starter home being built. The full facts of this failed pledge are on Byline Times here.

  1. David. Have you seen that Boris has blocked the Dominic Grieve report on the cosying up of Cameron, Osborne and Boris (Russian name) with the oligarchs links to Tory funding etc etc before the election.???? WHAT A SHOWER.

  2. When it is finally published we shall see if it was secret; top secret or most secret of all, embarrassing to someone. I do hope it is not Boris. He has all those admirable qualities of -regency Politician. He would have so much enjoyed Vienna 1814-15 to 20 for the peace conference.

    • Who cares if he/ would have liked Vienna 1814-15-to. 20 etc.
      How has a report by Dominic Grieve (such an important report) been allowed to be blocked ?
      It is outrageous that such an important pledge to first time buyers, appears to be a complete non starter.
      Lies and more false promises !!!
      Why is this not in the public domain NOW 2019 ???
      ESPECIALLY AT SUCH A CRITICAL POLITICAL TIME ………???
      IT SHOULD BE READY TO PUBLISH BY NOW ????
      WHERE IS IT ???

  3. Hi David, I have followed your blog since becoming part of backto60 and thank you very much for your great work towards that.

    Ive been wondering, do you think it would be possible through a F.O.I to get hold of the brief given to the ad agency that dealt with the publicity campaign surrounding the changes in women’s pension age? And also, would it be possible via that same route to find out if a D Notice has been attached to our campaign for justice? I know you’re a busy man but any help or info you can give me would be very much appreciated. Thank you, Lyn Taylor… a 1950’s woman. Keep up the good work, I don’t know where we would be without you.
