   Yes its a shame the 1997-2010 Labour government didn't bother building any new council houses and also a shame they didn't block the sale of council houses.

   Your figures are completely misleading, there are many uninhabitable houses across the country and a lot more which are currently empty [for sale].

Why bring the Labour Party into the conversation, I was stating facts.
Misleading possibly but not by much.

   House values and rents will continue to rise because of the shortage caused by the huge influx of foreign nationals thanks to EU regulations and Tony Blair.

I wish you would check your facts, Thatcher sold the Council houses of never to be replaced.The primary cause of the housing crisis is the lack of new houses being built. Since the 1980s, when council houses were sold in their millions, public bodies have, partly through policy and partly owing to a lack of funding, all but abandoned large scale housing construction projects.

The latest UK Government data shows that over 216,000 homes in England have been empty for over six months. In total, over 600,000 homes are currently vacant in England, more than the UK Government's housebuilding target of 300,000 per year.

Hartlepool built swathes of council estates, Owton Manner, Rift House and Clavering unfortunately those days will never return.

   The pound has risen significantly against the Dollar and Euro thats why other countries are now voting to leave EU.

The pound via the dollar, it was 1.39 June 2021 currently 1.22, I wouldn?t call that a significant rise, I couldn?t see why other countries would want to leave the EU ? The euro is currently at 1.16 falling from 1.20 in recent weeks.

Interesting ...  https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/homeandproperty/hartlepool-house-prices-increased-more-than-north-east-average-in-april/ar-AAYKJXl?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531&cvid=0d13ad332779437abbec09b016dcd619

As long as there is housing shortage prices will continue to rise, the government said we need to build 300000 a year which won?t happen. First and foremost the major players in the building industry don?t want to flood the market with new houses which could see a drop in the prices. Secondly we don?t have enough of the labour enquired to build them.

   Nothing to do with Brexit, we have benefitted immensely from leaving EU.

   When we left EU the pound was worth one euro, now its worth 1.23 euros.

   Its history pal, just let it go or move to Bulgaria and live on nettle soup.

Since the Brexit vote in 2016, the exchange rate of the pound against other leading currencies has fallen significantly. This seems to reflect a generally negative outlook among international investors for the UK?s economic prospects outside the European Union.
At the start of 2021, the pound was approximately 15% weaker relative to the euro than it was on the eve of the referendum on the UK?s membership of the European Union (EU) in June 2016. Sterling was also 20% weaker than it was when the EU Referendum Act received Royal Assent in December 2015.
