How the Daily Mail reports the same policy when Ed Miliband and then Theresa May suggest it
Theresa May’s had an idea to encourage landowners to build homes to help solve the property crisis and she’d like to share it with you.
It’s remarkably similar to an idea Ed Miliband had a few years ago.
Here’s how the Daily Mail reported it when it was the then Labour leader’s idea, as highlighted by @josh_salisbury on Twitter.

Greedy property developers! Muscular government!
