London Sunday 9th April 2017

A Little Green. There are of course lots of green spaces in and around London. Here however is an example of minimalist gardening at its best, seen here in Paddington.SONY DSC

We found a great Fullers pub not far from Paddington station, The Victoria. Nice sunny day as well. The Victoria pub near Paddington IMG_0283

Ban private cars from our city centres

Our cities our polluted, we are all being harmed by the people driving into them in their four wheel drives and Audi/BMW/VW etc etc etc. So no more private cars should be allowed, only buses, taxis, short term rental cars, bicycles, scooters, motorcycles and maybe even these could be like renting the Boris bikes. It would be better for our health and our journey times would be reduced. The Twizy

Moving the UK government to a Northern City

The Palace of Westminster is in need of a major refurbishment that will cost billions of pounds and this creates a golden opportunity to move the UK government to Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool or another suitable location. The effect of moving the UK government to a Northern city will be to create a true and lasting Northern powerhouse through the building of airport, rail and road infrastructure and the services needed to support them. It will create lasting employment in all sectors and through wealth creation will lead to a more financially balanced United Kingdom. The value of property will increase due to the additional movement or opening of embassies, consulates, think tanks, consultants, auditors, business and government agencies and other support organisations.

London will of course lose some of these organisations but with the Palace of Westminster renovated and converted for uses such as a History of the United Kingdom museum losses should be minimised. In fact London is and will increase as a very popular tourist destination. New York does not suffer because the government is in Washington. From the point of view of unifying the United Kingdom it will have the effect of making ordinary citizens feel for the first time that they matter as much as those who live in the South of the country.

See differences in unemployment rates, types of employment, property prices, facilities, opportunities, individual wealth etc between London and the South East and the rest of the of the United Kingdom.

Paul and Laura a Marriage on the Marathon Run

I don’t know if it is the first time that this has happened but Paul and Laura ran the 2015 London Marathon and at some point got married along the way and then carried on. I hope that they finished and good luck for them in the future.

Jesus – Did he really run the 2015 London Marathon

You will see many sights when you watch the London Marathon but I have never seen Jesus before and carrying a cross. Very impressive.
