    We essentially created it and it's even more anglicised than HK, so it may as well be. That said, it's run far better than the UK but that's related to a plethora of societal/temporal/size issues that i can't be fucked to go into.

    We should make earning money from owning property illegal.

    Or just make property illegal.
    Just tax ownership on homes you don't live in to the point where landlords fuck off and sell their no effort money printing empire.
    I am confused. What about renting companies owning and renting out big condo blocks? You know those that form the backbone of European housing in the big cities.

    Or is there a totally different term for those companies and they are not called "landlords"?
    You tax the land not the property. ie. if they keep the buildings in good condition they provide a useful service and if they don't they're sponging and can't afford to pay the tax on the land ownership and someone else comes in to fix things. Their costs come from quality of location and their income comes from quality of building. There's a gap for profit there if they do a good job.
    In most big cities there is an apartment shortage. The rents aren't as elastic as you make it seem as not having an apartment is not really an option, hence I would make the argument that there's less incentive to keep the buildings in good condition. However, if you live in the apartment yourself, then it makes sense to keep your own home in a proper condition for you to live in it.

    I'm tempted to become more politically active but I'm not selfish enough to be a tory, Labour are a mess and the Lib Dems are on life support.

    There's room for a Lib Dem resurrection.

    Also why not use debt to go back (at least if you fancy doing something well paid afterwards)?

    Being a slave to debt isn't something I ever want. Besides, learning is essentially free now. Most books are available online or at the library and there are loads of free lectures put on by the university of London.

    I'm not doing engineering again. Most of my course mates were weird egotistical pricks and most of the people I worked with in engineering after university were either incompetent or the good ones so bad at communicating I'm amazed they managed to ever get a job.

    It's an industry bubble I'm glad to have escaped.

    Get a decent apprenticeship with a big firm, plenty of opportunities afterwards to get qualifications. My brother is doing some BEng thing via his job at National Grid which he got through the apprentice scheme.

    University just ain't worth it anymore.
