Quote: We've got to commit ourselves to building about half a million homes over the next decade

Or reduce immigration by getting out of the EU. There would be plenty of houses available then.

I was going to post this in the light-hearted forum but I thought it was appropriate here as well:

Recently, whilst I was working in the flower beds in the front garden, my neighbours stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be Prime Minister one day. Both of her parents Labour Party voters - were standing there, so I asked her: "If you were Prime Minister what would be the 1st thing you would do?"
She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride!
"Wow, what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to do that!" I told her.
"What do you mean?" she replied.
So I told her: "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, trim my hedge and I'll pay you 50. Then you can go down to the Town Centre, find a homeless man and can give him the 50 to buy food." She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless man come over and do the work and you can just pay him the 50?"
I said, "Welcome to the Conservative Party".
Her parents aren't speaking to me any more

I'm not sure the Conservative Party does really advocate using the black economy to undermine legitimitate garden maintenance businesses Grin

If you lend homeless man your camera, he can shoot weddings all week and every weekend, 50 quid a go, cash in hand and no questions asked Wink
No doubt photographers everywhere would applaud such enterprising activity (!)

Aggressive tax avoidance is surely part of the Black Economy? Well, Grey Economy anyway. Wink
