    true - my life is plenty skewed from the one I left behind in Glasgae, it's difficult recognise sometimes what's normal. Regardless you don't expect 2017 Britain to be housing folks in such conditions with all the wonders the land has to offer.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    5 million new people and no investment in infrastructure what do you expect? Don't forget to tell your MP.

    Luckily we have lots of money generated by our visitors and our membership of an unmentionable organisation.

    It is close to Mitcham Tram station so there is public transport access.
    Well is sounds like a great location for transport.

    UK spending:

    1) Buy bankrupt banks

    2) Buy DUP votes


    Clearly we've lot of money to throw around.

    I used to like LBC.

    These "people" need to be moved to the cheapest place in the country. Their children taken into care. And be sterilised.

    No they have a right to live in London!

    Lots of London councils are now giving people the choice of move elsewhere in the country or we won't house you. I guess these people need to decide whether they want to be housed in London in tulip accommodation or elsewhere in the country in nicer accommodation.

    Then that right needs to be removed.

    London is full.

    Calling it a slum insults those who live in real abject poverty.
