Liberal Democrats vote to scrap Section 21

first_imgThis is one of those political issues where any professional experienced person in the particular sector under discussion could in fact be enraged or desperate, that some politicians have any idea of the facts or the positives and negatives of the matter.Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, has already confirmed that Labour is considering giving private tenants the right to buy their homes. He insisted property owners would not lose out, but suggested longterm tenants could be allowed to buy at a sub-market rates.Yesterday (Tuesday 17th September) at the Liberal Democrats Autumn conference took time out from the sunshine on Bournemouth seafront (pictured) to vote on the party’s motion – which creates the party’s new policy F44: Protecting Private Tenants.David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark responded to the Liberal Democrats motion to scrap Section 21 ‘No Fault Evictions’ saying: “Today’s vote at the Liberal Democrat Conference is another attack on the private rental sector and landlords operating within it. The effects of the tenant fees ban have not yet been felt, and yet more proposed legislation could deter landlords from operating in the market.“Although in the majority of cases there is no need for Section 21 to be used, there are times when a landlord has no choice but to take action and evict tenants from a property. The proposed commitment will only increase pressure on the sector and discourage new landlords from investing in buy-to-let properties.“This comes at a time when demand is dramatically outpacing supply, and rent costs are rising. ARLA Propertymark will be engaging with the Liberal Democrats to ensure they fully understand the consequences of any changes, and all changes are based on evidence, so landlords have the ability to regain their properties if needed.”liberal democrats ARLA Propertymark Section 21 Sheila Manchester David Cox eviction September 18, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

first_img View Comments Into the Woods Show Closed This production ended its run on April 12, 2015 You wish to go to the Festival? Off-Broadway’s the place to be! The Roundabout revival of Into the Woods opens officially on January 22. Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, the stripped down production from Fiasco Theater will run through March 22 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Related Shows The cast features Brody and Steinfeld along with Jessie Austrian, Paul L. Coffey, Andy Grotelueschen, Liz Hayes, Claire Karpen, Jennifer Mudge, Patrick Mulryan and Emily Young. All the actors are reprising their roles in the staging, which has played both at New Jersey’s McCarter Theatre Center and the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. The beloved re-imagining of fairy tales centers on a childless Baker and his wife, who embark on a quest to find the four items required to break a witch’s spell: the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold. The new production ditches the original orchestrations for a single piano, with the performers chiming in with everything from a bassoon to a waterphone.last_img read more

Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Matthew Stafford, Jacoby Brissett affect Week 11 QB rankings

first_imgThere was a point Wednesday where it looked like Jacoby Brissett and Matthew Stafford would both be ready to return in Week 11, but the Stafford news got cloudier. At least the Colts should have Brissett back, a big boost to their offense as he slides into the middle of our Week 11 fantasy QB rankings. Stafford’s injured back still could hold him out and subject us to another thrilling week of starting quarterback Jeff Driskel for Detroit. We have the latest updates below.For the latest on injured WRs, such as Adam Thielen, T.Y. Hilton, Amari Cooper, and several more, go here; for updates on injured TEs George Kittle, Jack Doyle, and Gerald Everett, go here; for news on ailing RBs David Johnson, David Montgomery, Jordan Howard, and more, click here. Follow us at @SN_Fantasy for more news and updates. Jacoby Brissett injury updateColts head coach Frank Reich said Brissett would start in Week 11 if he got a full practice in on Wednesday. Well, Brissett practiced in full Wednesday, so it looks like he will make his return and relegate Brian Hoyer to the bench as the Colts take on Jacksonville on Sunday.WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endBrissett’s return is good for the Colts’ offensive attack, ensuring you can start Marlon Mack with no reservations. Injuries have the rest of the receiving corps in a to-be-determined state — T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess and Jack Doyle are all question marks for Sunday. WEEK 11 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerLISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 11 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWWill Matthew Stafford play in Week 11?Stafford wasn’t listed by Matt Patricia as an injury before Wednesday’s practice, but then he observed the whole practice from the sideline while Jeff Driskel took first-team reps. Stafford is dealing with broken bones in his back. Stafford proceeded to miss practice Thursday, as well.Stafford’s presence is huge for the viability of the rest of the Lions offense — Kenny Golladay and maybe T.J. Hockenson are the only players you can consider starting if fantasy if Driskel gets the nod for the second straight week.WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y!
