"Housing After the Crunch" again

Writing on Comment is Free, Shaun Spiers from the Campaign to Protect Rural England is enthusiastic about the John Healey speech I attended last week:

I remember going round fringe meetings at the 2008 party conferences, making the case for a more stable housing market. A year on, I had given up hope. The two main parties' aim for housing seemed to be a return to a new housing bubble as quickly as possible.

Healey's speech invites the country to consider whether we really want to return to years of excessive house price inflation, followed by a crash, followed by another boom with all the social and environmental consequences that entails.

He also provides a link to the full text of Healey's speech.
