It's a reasonable protest point though. A housing crisis and homes are empty because people merely want a vehicle for their cash. This needs to stop and to do so means measures that may seem unreasonable. It means saying enough is enough and no you can't to powerful interests. It's obvious that these flats will not be requisitioned, also obvious that property rights must be respected. But we also need to acknowledge that those same property rights can't be used to disadvantage UK citizens for the benefit of foreign investors. What would you do about it? Where would you house these people and how to solve the ongoing housing crisis?
