@LucreLout: Okay except you're wrong about the owning your house bit

Large scale home ownership was a blip for the baby-boomers and the younger generation are returning to the norm of predominantly rented. Thatcher managed to revive it a little with the council housing sell-off conjuring trick but it's left us in a poor position to deal with the return to the norm.

Government should meddle in some markets, housing is a prime example.
