  • i want to know why they never built the new railway from london to manchester to scotland for 32 billion reduce some of the road traffic, in particular wagons from eastern europe, our roads are in a terrible state

    i would like to see government owned land put up for sale one 1/4 acre plot per family to self build on, it would create loads of jobs and allow for loads of nice cheap houses.

    Got a reply from Shapps only today. Any land made available will be sold at current market prices. So self build etc will be impossibly expensive.

  • Where is Obama getting all this cash from? Don’t tell me its going to be borrowed?

    Does anyone think this is the “silver bulet” which will fix things? I think the answer is NO.

    Exactly who will this help? ….maybe Obama – he needs re-electing…. you choose….
