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.
If we continue in our current way there can only be more war and more poverty. While some large corporations plunder our planet for short term gain the ecological poverty that is caused will affect us all. Above all we need inclusion for every human being not replacement by technology, technology must be used to aid us in reducing our individual workload not replacing individuals. The information revolution must be used to connect individuals and not in some of the vacuous ways we see at the moment in social media. Individuals who buy food and clothes from other countries must be connected with the individuals who grow the coffee and who pick the cotton or sew the clothes that they buy. Only then will we be able to stop the horrendous exploitation that occurs between 1st world consumers and 3rd world producers.
It’s Friday night and we are walking along Norwood Road in Herne Hill only to find that the Portuguese restaurant that we were going to try isn’t open or has probably closed permanently being that it is Friday night. Not far away is a fish and chip shop and not just any old fish and chip shop so we go there instead. They call it an experience and it certainly is. The setting is very nice and different and the food excellent. The staff are very welcoming and the prices are more than reasonable. If you get a chance to visit then please do. http://www.olleys.info/
I haven’t had the pleasure of going for a drink in this pub although I should have by now. It does look fairly traditional East End boozer. The outside is amazing. Check out these superb green tiles. It is located on the corner of Scrutton Street and Holywell Road in Shoreditch in London. Copyright http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk
I thought maybe that I had missed a few weeks and it was April 1st when a colleague pointed out this article in the Metro newspaper. Are people allowed to play April 1st jokes before the date?
I know that there are a group of people out there who are completely dumb, lazy, vacuous, rich or a combination of these things and that if humanity were mainly made up of these people then the human race would be rapidly heading towards an evolutionary dead end but this really does take the biscuit 🙂
There are some of us out there who can’t even boil an egg and as such are prepared to pay for a semi prepared boiled egg which still needs to be placed in boiling water. But isn’t that what you do anyway? This must be the greatest legal confidence trick going. Next up selling packaged ice to the Eskimos.
Check this out, the Yowk at yowk.co.uk. If you buy this and then complain that you haven’t got enough money you shouldn’t be allowed out on your own as you are dangerous to the rest of us so no breeding.The yolk is on you!
I think we have been to this great little restaurant in Glendower Place three times after seeing films at the Cine Lumiere just round the corner. The food is nice and very tasty, the staff very pleasant and the prices very reasonable. We will definitely be going again. http://www.papparoma.com.
Small and Beautiful is a little gem of a restaurant in Kilburn in London. It is independent and nicely and uniquely decorated. The food is well cooked and presented with plenty of flavour and the prices are very reasonable. We went there before we went to see the comedian Mark Thomas at the Tricycle theatre. Definitely worth a visit. http://www.small-and-beautiful.co.uk/
