  1. The only way is up, like Hong Kong and Singapore. With our constant increase in population people will have to accept that they will need to live in blocks of flats - it is simply not viable to expect that everyone can live in a house with a garden.
  2. It does seem surprising that we hear so little from the young. The problem, of course, is that if the younger generation did take a stand it would probably be along the same lines as previously, ie "shopping" expeditions for free trainers, etc. This is because that that this all that that they have been brainwashed to aspire to, and the powers that be know this full well.
  3. I would think that by 2020 things might look quite a lot different. For example - if people can no longer afford rents a lot of surplus BTL's might well be bought up at knock down prices by the likes of Tesco, who would then drive rents down to gain market share. It would be mandatory for tenants to purchase Tesco energy and broadband. Tesco would also benefit by opening a Tesco Express on all developments where they owned a substantial part of the housing stock. You heard it here first.
  4. So during the school term the children of these needy families receive free meals. Which means these people never feed their own children. Ever. I find this hard to understand, these people must have some money, what do they spend it on ? My understanding is that food banks are only a temporary short term measure used when , for example. people lose their jobs and there is a delay in receiving benefit. The answer must surely be to pay part of all benefits in vouchers that can only be exchanged for food.
  5. How will unemployment fall below 7% if we have continuing EU immigration, particularly from Romania and Bulgaria ?
  6. You can eat for less than £1(just) in Somerset... http://www.thisissomerset.co.uk/Austerity-bites-Hard-Times-Cafe-Wellington-99p/story-18233380-detail/story.html#axzz2U46KcyDn
  7. This guy has a lot to say on the subject. http://hat4uk.wordpress.com/
  8. The BBC reporter on the lunchtime news said it was all very quiet and orderly. Who do we believe - Wail or Beeb ?
  9. The Slog seems to have a bit more info about Sellafield. http://hat4uk.wordpress.com/
  10. These chalets may well not be around in a few years time. Who on earth would want to buy a property in a place that has its own Coastal Erosion Group ? http://www.greatyarmouthmercury.co.uk/news/scratby_erosion_hopes_higher_1_792285
  11. I thought I read a while ago that they were definitely going to bring back the equipment overland by train. Obviously they can't afford it now that the fares have gone up.
  12. And of course the local authorities in these areas then pick up the on-going tab .
