Ed West on the housing crisis

Ed West deftly sums up the housing crisis:
Housing is an intractable problem because the Tories don’t want rural development, which upsets their Nimby supporters, and Labour are pro-immigration but unwilling to accept that four million new residents means four million new residencies, and that building them is not easy on an already crowded island. 
I would add that some Tory big-business donors push for high immigration, while some left-leaning environmentalists oppose rural development.
