council homes need to be built each year in order to cope with rising demand.
I hope they build them in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool and dedicate the green belt land for private housing only.
100,000 more like. At least.
Time to go underground.
Over to you, Mr Weller - in a brief reprise of that stunning, quirky, mad opening ceremony..
Just mustard gas the population until there's a surplus of housing.
Accommodation problem solved, cost - feck all, oh, and I've also just eliminated the dole queue, saved the NHS billions and eradicated traffic congestion.
You're welcome :)
"They mostly come out at night, mostly."
..they haven't thought about it.
Too much thinking, not enough wiping out the little people.
If the social engineering going on round W.10/W.11 is anything to go by it'll be the other way around. Ie .. social housing being sold to private developers while working class, 2nd / 3rd generation immigrants, and other undesirables are pushed out to the margins (Stonebridge Park, Leytonstone! and beyond). Give it a few decades and London will be more in the Parisien mode. The moneyed in the centre, the blacks and the paupers in the outskirts. London then becomes a middle-class monocultural gated community. Bad. All bad I tell ya.
This will only go down one way...and it ain't good
that's Leyton's Tone! pop-pickers with the ol' Joe Meek flockwall paper of sound
edit: Joe Meek's a ringer for Chappers in that sort of avuncular fat gay way
..Kidney Stones as they're slightly less irritating than the hoardes of South African "Doodes dat live dere mayte".
Actually I wonder what effect their mass alcoholic impotency has had on birth rates in the area. Reckon we could skip the hovels there and get away with another pub, maybe call it The Sperm Bank (sounds like The Springbok but the alliterative aspect'll be lost on 'em).
