Where are the aspirational figureheads of business? DON'T you dare say Sir Alan Sugar, he's a sales man...I mean groups, companies, UK based, not overseas owned...
Please can you fix it for me to live in a society where the economy is NOT structured on shoddily-built housing and faked I.D. Mortgages, with a backward banking system, that embraces sensible clean technologies!!
I would really love to see UK owned industry, becoming a major factor in growth not foreign buyouts of anything that looks remotely profitable followed by quick closure and move out to their home country.
p.s. if you can arrange for me to sing on stage with Showaddywaddy that would be good too...
So I'm fed up, is there a glimmer of hope for us? well probably yes, but not in housing...why? simple really, Water! we've not got enough water in the South East to supply the current population, year on year it get less as demand goes up. It's not just households or course, what little there is in industry consumes a large percentage. But we need more for our food, which is grown in the farms of the UK.
What perhaps ought to happen is an infrastructure review. New areas for water storage, damns, dykes etc. that's a things to build!
We neeeeeeed water to live, not diesel, petrol, not even Hydrogen....but H2O,....refreshing in a brew, cuppa-char, coffee's main constituent, 94% of beer....WATER!
but do you really think we can flood a valley in the South East now to provide water security?
we can't even build a pointless wind turbine without a complaint... NIMBY (Not in My Back Yard)
you can see it now...
"Oh no, one can't build that next to me, I'm not having that reservoir there, good lord no. !...I won't be able to sell my garden off for a housing development"
BANANA (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything)....though I do share some of these thoughts when it comes to housing.... :)
New Damn puts picturesque Norfolk Village Hethersett 100m underwater
Now, the issue is, no on wants to live like that, we all want to live in the country....greater expense, greater energy, greater travel, greater inconvenience, and greater loss of farm and countryside....
Darn it, why can't it be simple...
