I think that most people who regularly comment on here probably have owned their own homes for a long time, and do not feel informed enough to comment on the state of housing and the difficulties other people have with renting, let alone buying, somewhere nice to live. I don't mean to be rude, just think that is probably the case.

"... with London and the South East suffering from the highest price rises, it is surely time to concentrate more effort on creating more good jobs in cheaper locations beyond the M25, which would also benefit the environment." Quite true but how can you then argue that it is unfair to fill an Ipswich development with "the unemployed from East London"? Would have thought those were the people who needed good jobs.

Melanie Phillips did an article on the wiretapping thing you mention on her website yesterday to be fair. But she did point out that the MSM in the UK hadn't picked up on it, which I guess is really your point.

If he had put "ba dum tishh" it might have been clearer. Meant to be a bit of percussion after a successful punchline.

Not at all. 5% is still too high in my view but thank you for reminding me, I thought something had been done but couldn't remember what...

Tubby and Elaine and Kate are female and so am I. Has no one mentioned VAT? Is it still charged on the blooming things? If so, dropping it when we can would help us all.

It isn't. The 30 hours (strictly "additional 15 hours") "free" (funded by taxpayers) childcare is available to a parent who works 16 hours or more a week and earns up to £100K. You can also get it if your spouse/partner earns up to £100K. So a family with a joint income of £399,999 is eligible. A family with a single income of £100,001 is not.

Yes too diverse. They ran library and archives services in our borough, which they really didn't seem to understand.

A pleasure to listen to. JRM is so polite and expresses himself so clearly that I don't think he will ever be leader. He represents the apotheosis of a Conservative constituency MP though, and I wish he was my MP.
