Comments are a bit depressing really...we love landowner favouring planning system, everything due to one or two EVIL MULTINATIONALS (who of course, cant be named :rolleyes: ) hoarding all the land.

I have heard earnest politicians telling me that they are convinced that immigration can only be good for Britain.

But of course, they the politicians, were snouters, trouserers, gravy train riders with severe personality disorders.
