The rich pour in while the poor poured out

News the other day that the coalition has decreed that 'wealthy foreigners' who invest £5m will be allowed to stay here, indeed, be fast tracked for indefinite leave to remain.

Ooh! House prices will rise with an increase in demand!
Rents will surely go up!
This won't match the reductions in local housing allowances!
This will add to the tide of people already facing eviction as a result of housing benefit cuts!
Why am I putting exclamation marks?!
It's not exciting!!!!!
