Labour are in chaos.

First their energy price freeze collapsed when it was shown it would lead to higher prices and now their flagship policy to help tenants would actually lead to higher rents.

Thank goodness that Emma Reynolds is still only the shadow housing minister because she believes Labour’s rent controls policy is the way ahead.

Alternatively, your Conservative candidate, Darren Henry, believes rent controls never work – they destroy investment in housing leading to fewer homes to rent and poorer quality accommodation.
