UK HOUSING MARKET IS A DISASTER - Introduce land value tax & abolish council tax, business rates & stamp duty

3.5 million homeless in England but a total lack of urgency in the Queens Speech. The housing crisis is now.

It causes over crowding, evictions sleeping on the streets and damages health

Nothing in Queens Speech to stop rich & powerful national and international speculators hoarding unused land & empty homes for profit while millions UK citizens are homeless.

There are rows of empty "investments" in London..The four big builders have 600,000 unused plots of land in their land banks.

In Denmark;

1. Any home or land left empty or unused for six months must be sold. 
2. Only Danish residents may buy Danish land
3. They have land value tax.

That could enable the abolition of council tax, business rates and stamp duty,
