In 1945 the Labour executive got down to permit everybody to have a good domestic, the place humans from all walks of existence may possibly dwell jointly. This dream used to be destroyed by way of a succession of avoidable blunders and virtually every person now turns out to think that it really is very unlikely to rediscover that imaginative and prescient. This publication demanding situations that fatalism, tracing the coverage errors that experience given upward thrust to this inequitable nation from the folly of mass housing to the unfair tax privileges of many house owners. Holmes describes and advocates a brand new imaginative and prescient for the hot millennium, discovering ideas variously in improvement, making plans, financial buildings, social reform, and political reassessment to slender the space among wealthy and terrible and let humans in all housing tenures to ultimately have a choice.
