    I revisited Southwark last summer. I lived there about twentyfive years ago. When I saw what had happened with regard to development it put me in a thoughtful frame of mind as to who were the beneficiaries of it. Certainly not the vast majority of the inhabitants, unless they are one of those that can afford to leave an an apartment that could be valued at over £1m lying empty for more than 90% of the year.

    edit.

    I have still got sand in my ears.

    every psychological feel bad factor helps in the fight against a damaging Brexit

    See, like I said, every cloud (crappy weather and global warming) has a silver lining. I’m having a bit of a rotator cuff problem at the moment Andy, also losing the battle against unwelcome moineaux crapping all over the place, does that help you at all?

    Probably not unless you are also having to fund the repairs and bird scarers in Sterling.

    Blimey Andy, you are perceptive as well as idefatigable! I bought the trap cage in the UK and even the white millet was cheaper to order from Amazon UK, my UK spending is £’s earned in the UK.

    What is a rotator cuff problem?

    Shoulder pain.

    Not as severe as the neck pain that the moineaux will soon experience.

    Ironic that my dislike of house sparrows stems from them moving into the countryside in such numbers that they drive the natural inhabitants to the towns, and, of course, the particular noise that they make. Whatever, the best of luck with the mission. Will anybody come and remove us I wonder.

    You should sell your story to the Daily Express, something along the lines of Bird seed booms in Brexit Britain. They need all the Brexit good news stories they can find.

    Rising unemployment + lower wage rises + higher inflation coming but is is what Brexit voters voted for?

    I note that UK inflation has reached the year end forecast already and it is only April. How many Brexit voters thought they were voting for higher prices?

    Puppet on a string

    Is the string about about to break, or, is the tanker parking lot in the Gulf or wherever doing lots of business?

    Around 90% of leave voters expected not to see their living standards fall after voting for Brexit. Like most things about Brexit they believed they are finding out they were wrong. Some are as wealthy as Duncan Smith, Rees Mogg, Johnson, Gove and Farage so would not change their minds when they discover that Brexit is hurting them but many are not. The 17.4 million would probably shrink to around 10 million after a period of falling living standards which is why the Brexiter elites do not want a second vote once people understand the reality of Brexit.

    Well !  TM doesn’t appear to be going to do OAPs any favours …but at least it is good to see she is going to remove the WFA from ‘wealthier’ pensioners living in the UK … but also raising the cap on care home fees …to pay for care of the elderly ……..???

    Can see no mention so far about ex pats rights, but just read the headlines so will have to wade into the manifesto ………excuse the steam that is likely to rise from the top of my head …..if I haven’t banged it on the wall too hard … :unsure:
