• I don’t think ‘right to buy’ at rates discounted in proportion to rent already paid is in and of itself a bad thing, potentially it’s a powerful tool for delivering security to families and for developing more socially mixed housing areas. That said the implementation as it exists seems a cynical and harmful piece of the austerity program used to…[Read more]

  • I’d do what your brother and sister suggest. Obviously I don’t know everything about your family but it sounds like your dad is being unreasonable by not listening to your concerns. And yes, get some legal advice. If he’s left everything to his new wife I’d have no qualms about selling it one day either…and I say that as a second wife! There’s…[Read more]

    Ok, this is a tough one for me, but I really need to get this out. My son and gf split up when their baby was six weeks old. She refused to let my son see him, and blocked the whole family on social media etc. My son consulted a solicitor, but these things take time.
    Two weeks after they split, my son was sentenced to 7months in prison. Right…[Read more]

    Maybe it’s time for some principles? You won’t get them from May, Hunt, Gove or Barking Boris, it’s all about privatisation for them. In my humble opinion privatisation and health service are mutually exclusive and irreconcilable – some things just are not suitable for being privatised, the motives of the private company is not geared to public…[Read more]

    I pay for dental treatment, I have a chequered past with NHS dentists. I get more time with a private dentist. People often say to me its expensive, but women will pay £80 to get their hair dyed and £35 every two weeks to get their nails gelled, which has no impact on their health. People do not seem to want to invest in their own health care a…

    I watched a very interesting interview on TV last week where a hospital consultant said the government were actively trying to make the NHS fail in order to get public support for privatisation long term,

    @kerry Absolutely – that’s what they did with the railways too – foment union strife and service withdrawal and then privatization looks like…[Read more]

    A long time ago on here I was directed to Caroline hirons blog, and it radically changed my skin care thoughts and routine. I would definitely check it out for advice.

    Obv if this was being outsourced then the parking management company would be looking to make a profit.. using fines and high prices to get that profit.There was a bbc documentary a couple weeks back http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0803b0s which highlights how low some of these private company’s contracted by council will stoop and how…[Read more]

    Just was a new item on the bbc about charging patients to park at hospital.

    What your opinions on the NHS charging patients to park at hospital?

    My guess is that the money generated wouldn’t even be going to the NHS but some private company managing the parking instead?
