The political parties are at sea on how to solve the housing crisis


In an article purporting to critique the parties housing proposals, why mention the mansion tax, which is about mansions, rather than tax, instead of Labour's pledge to build 200,000 homes a year, with reforms to funding, planning etc to do so? You must surely have heard about it - to ignore it just looks overtly partisan. And I know you always imply that developer contributions for S106 and affordable housing come out of developer profits rather than the land value, but that really is a rather niche understanding of the matter.
