I'm with the National Trust, the countryside, in particular the national parks shouldn't be built on. In fact, all current buildings in national parks should be demolished and replaced by flower meadows. As for NIMBYs, if their area is so precious, what are they doing spoiling it with their smelly houses? Knock them all down I say.

Did you want deep and meaningful comment? Sorry.

He reminds me of a teenage girl.


Look out Dave, you will soon be handing the keys back mate.



The knimbies who say "No" demand..... a sacrifice!
Arthur: Knimbies of No, we are but simple hardworking families who seek affordable housing on the scrubland beyond these woods.
Knimbies of No: No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No!
Bedevere: Please stop opposing our reasonable demands!
Knimby of No: We shall say "No" to you... if you do not appease us.
Arthur: Well what is it you want?
Knimby of No: We will allow you to build your precious high density shoeboxes, so long as you do not move so much as....

A SHRUBBERY!!!!

Alexie Sale talks to the Telegraph about his finances...

What property do you own?

We've got a three-bedroom flat in Bloomsbury we bought back in 1988, and a three-bedroom villa in the south of Spain we bought 11 years ago. I'm content with our flat we've never thought about moving or climbing up the property ladder because I feel a home is somewhere to live, not something to make money from. We do let our villa to holidaymakers when we're not there, which I know is a very capitalist thing to do, but it makes me feel better. After all, when it's lying empty I just feel guilty about wasting it. We only go there ourselves for a couple of months each year.

Nice to hear man of the people Alexie Sale giving the big property boys a kicking.

Jeez!

I presume he lets it out on a strictly costs-only basis. No..?

Great to hear some of the rich panel including Sayle don't give a fig if some food goes up in price by getting on for 20%.

Another 20% that is.

Ham and cheese pasty this morning, up 5p to 1.05, she nearly charged me a quid. But having not been in ages I'd got correct change out anyhow in anticipation.

Greggs is a luxury for minimum wage workers, one that could quite easily be cut back on, and often is.
Have I not reason to lament what man has mas made of man?

Initially 'Unemployed Youth'
Then 'Formerly Unemployed Youth'
Then 'Unemployed Again Youth'
Hopefully soon to be 'Employed Again Youth' and not long after that I'll be eligible for working tax credits, if not I'll at least get adult rate dole and maybe car insurance will be potentially affordable!

The big political story of the night seems to be that George Galloway is on his way to beating Labour in the Bradford West byelection.
