UK Election 2015 – time for a major change

With the UK general election almost upon us isn’t time that we had some radical changes? Here are some to think about:

1. Empty properties in London and other major cities, if they are not being lived in by the owners for more than a month per year then the local councils have the right to rent them out at affordable rents to people. This would stop the one percent using our cities and homes as investment vehicles.

2. Corporations, all corporations in retail, food, clothing and entertainment to be limited. Let’s put individuality, small owners, family businesses back into the running of our cities.

3. Commercial property owners of retail space, cap and reduce the rent they can charge allowing non corporate businesses to start and flourish.

I’m sure that there are a few more that we can think of to divide up the wealth in a fairer way.

Let’s break the chains that bind us the ninety nine percent.

Teachers warn of ‘Victorian’ poverty among pupils

I have just read an article entitled this on the BBC website. I live in what is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries in the world and every day I hear smug members of the political class telling me how good it is and how good it is going to be. When you see this sort of article you know that it is all lies, complete misinformation. A time for political change perhaps.
