Re: Voting for housing

And what do you think your contemporaries are hoping for from the Green Party on housing? Nothing at all I imagine. It didn't matter that Nigel Farage hadn't read his own manifesto because, to his supporters, he was merely a receptacle for dissatisfaction with Westminster. Almost nobody thinks that...

Re: Voting for housing

I think there are three things that are worth saying. Firstly, that the global economic crisis that started in 2007/2008 wasn't a result of spending too much money on libraries, universities and job seekers allowance etc. As Owen Jones puts it "A crisis of the market was cleverly transformed by free...

Re: Voting for housing

Re: Voting for housing

Hello I've been urged to comment on the reasons people around my age (23) don't bother to vote for their own interests. In 2010 many of us did make an effort to so with regards to tuition fees and we all know what happened there. I will be interested to see how many millennials go out of their way t...

http://www.newcrystalpalace.org/gallery.htm Plans for new Crystal Palace are looking a bit better but also looking more expensive. Don't know how they will pay for this with the economic crisis. They said that had assured the funding from the clydesdale bank. Anyway it looks much better to me. See w...

I'm in exactly the same situation. I handed out my CV to shops on Sydenham high street and nobody called back. Nobody seems to trust teenagers. Nobody want an employee with no experience so I can't get any. People always say "why don't you get a job like it's easy but it's not easy when your startin...

I hate it when people don't vote. People are fighting and dieing for the vote in other country’s and we take it for granted. I think it should be compulsory. Even if there is no left or right anymore and most policy decisions are made by civil servants and unelected thinktanks we should still vote a...

As you all know I am in total favour of the idea but if most of you are against the plans then how about a reasonable compromise like this small replica of the Crystal Palace build in a Garden in India. Perfect for a farmers market. http://www.shunya.net/Pictures/South%20India/Bangalore/LalbaghGarde...

I totally agree Alice. I'm 17 and have been unsuccessfully looking for a job for more then a year. As well as that there is nothing for people my age to do around here.
