English Boarding Schools

07-08-2004 15:57

After 20 years and just at the onset of my 40’s I finally realize that my time from the age of 7-13 and 13-20 at Dorset House School and then Seaford College Boarding Schools in Sussex England were the most violent and hellish experience of my life. Dante nor Blake or Dickens could do it justice.

LET US DECIDE - the case for council housing (Liverpool has 21,000 remaining)

30-07-2004 17:00

LET US DECIDE (from Guardian 29th June 2004)

Tenants have the right to affordable, secure housing that is provided by the council - not private companies

Tenants all round Britain are intent on defending council housing against a government dogmatically committed to privatisation. Decent, affordable, secure and accountable housing provided by the local council has served generations well. And contrary to myth, it pays for itself - if all the money it brings in is reinvested. In Camden, my rent for a three bedroom flat is £85 per week. In the wake of the right to buy policy, the same flats go for over £250,000. Many are now owned by private management companies who rent them out for £300 a week. Housing Association rents in Camden are much higher than the council; and they have an appalling record on repairs and how they treat tenants.
