If you turn your attention towards the media headlines, you will quickly find that social housing is taking over the news. It seems politicians across the board are raising issues and solutions to the current problem that is the social housing crisis.
With many changes being made in Britain’s housing systems in recent months, it is commonly disregarded that such advances come forward with expenses.
What ways could our country provide more money to be diverted to contribute to the social housing issues at hand?
My suggestions stand below.
-We could set Brexit back a couple years
Brexit itself is expected to cost the country tens of billions of pounds to put in place and maintain. Why not focus on current affairs, rather than a financial plan for the future and fix the upfront issues, such as economic instability within social housing and the NHS? If we prolong the costs of Brexit, time could be spent instead on thoughts and investments linked to social housing. All it would take is a couple years to fix, then we could move along to tackle Brexit. After all, Brexit is still such a delicate plan that we aren’t even sure it will continue to take place. Time needs to be put into dire issues, rather than fluctuating possibilities.
-Hire better/more people in the government to focus on the issue of housing. The current housing minister, Alok Sharma, seems to be working primarily individually. Perhaps with further back up in his field, innovations could be put in place earlier.
