    Not an acceptable answer imo.

    If you can't afford to live in Berlin, move to somewhere you can.

    My parents did it 40+ years ago when they got married and couldn't afford to buy where they grew up - not a new idea being priced out of an area you would like to live or think you are entitled to live in.
    Pretend you're from Port Isaac, then you'll understand, a lot of the properties there are London owned.

      That’s one way of looking at it. I can afford to live here. But as a resident I don’t want this city to be the preserve of the wealthy. There’s much more to life than house prices.

      Why is Port Isaac any different to Berlin or anywhere else for that matter?

      Apologies, but I don't see why my point doesn't still stand.

      They would say that wouldn't they? I would too if I had a vested interest. Buy to let landlords moved their money into property when their interest income was substantially reduced when rates were dropped due to the banking crises, and of course the governments decision to release pension pots so those who wished could invest in second/ third or more properties.
      The private rented sector has flourished since c. 2002.

      Savings rates crashed in 2008/09.

      The easing of buy to let lending, with millions especially in southern England having significant equity on their main home to use as the deposit, got the ball rolling for the lucky savvy. Almost like printing money for the millions who bought a BTL or two in the heady days of huge house price rises.

      Rent is capped/controlled here dependant on region in Sweden. British houses/apartments are on the whole like third world countries compared to here, the quality can’t be compared. So yeah, that argument doesn’t work

      Why should someone be forced out of the area they grew up in so it can become the preserve of the wealthy ?

      Only enforces my point about folk being shafted.

      It’s a shame they don’t cap the price of those beers in Omnipollo as well
