Since racing is a sport, it falls under the regulations of sport activity perfromance in a given port where you are leaving from.

Well they may not be "social housing" now, but many certainly used to be!

We have just had events cancelled on us shortly after having them confirmed as on. This was due to a change in the local Covid infection rates and the club feeling they could no longer host or encourage people to travel. This is fair enough.

The young professional who has 100k now can't buy that so buys a flat for 100k that should cost 60k.

The 60k flat should have been social housing...

I nearly bought an island not that long ago for 350k. I couldn't buy a 1 bed flat in London for that.


exactly  this - also as seen with Brown 'abolishing boom and bust' and fuelling the BTL  revolution

Whilst having some sympathy with locals in areas where people like to have a second home I think we can all rest assured that the homes that are in the "second home" bracket are not and never will be social housing.
