Tessa Jowell (Mayoral Hopeful For 2016) - Homes For Londoners

Recommended Posts

Don't know how thing will shape out in the next few months. With proposed cuts many non tory voters PRS/HB tenants may have moved out of London by Mayoral election time.

Woman who supports unlimited immigration is going to solve housing crisis.

Pity the electorate are too thick to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

She Like Boris and Ken before want s this job to gain wealth and power.

So much weak waffle in that political puff piece, it's pathetic. Abolish the green belt and take planning out of the hands of local government and only allows objections to development to be made through the courts. Everything else is rearranging deck chairs on the proverbial.

Sounds okayish, a bit vague on actions but at least she's publicly stating that housing is a major problem for ordinary (especially younger) Londoners which is more than Boris ever did.

I doubt that the Mayor of London really has the power to directly tackle the city's housing problem. Planning law sits with Westminster and is enforced by the London boroughs. Tenancy law and land taxation also sit with Westminster. The Mayor has no power over these bodies and can only act as a spokesman trying to influence their decisions.

Still, it's a (very modest) start.

Was never a big fan of hers and I actually never liked her or her relationship with Tony Blair. But she gave a moving speech in the Lords a few months ago and died with dignity, RIP

She did a lot of championing for experimental cancer treatments that are not currently covered by the NHS and more research. No progress has been made on brain tumours in the last fifty years but it only affects 3000 people a year. Survival is rare.

She may have gone to Germany this year and self funded a stem cell treatment. I note one clinic in Germany advertises a fixed fee of 162, 000 Euro.

In January she said she would fight the cancer 100%. I guess she did.

This woman was one of the main cheerleaders for the war in Iraq, she didn't give a flying fk about young men dying for her and her friends vanity project, so there is no way i'll be virtue signalling for this corrupt individual or her corrupt husband.

Erm, am I the only one that is suprised at how many headlines this got?  Think the BBC and other London papers misjudged the general publics interest yet again.

She got what she deserved in the end. The rest will eventually too hopefully a longer diagnosis so they have many years to reflect on their actions. 

when you look at how fragile and insignificant everyone is it is all about greed nothing else. 

pretty much every living thing made of flesh and bone is replaced every century and forgotten about.  

no need for all this pain and suffering experienced by some.
