Let's analyse the cunning plan Prime Minister Pooter Cockell came up with, in cahoots with the leader of Peterborough City Council, the frightening looking, 'Don' Mario Cereste.
Evidently Don Mario has quite a reputation and the Dame is pleased to recommend this excellent local blog...
required reading now that the Don and Pooter are 'bedding down' together. Pooter has even invited the Don down to 'his' posh borough to enjoy some opera at 'his' opera company. Time to check again on Pooter's ex's, methinks....
Pooter told Cereste the taxpayers of K&C would fund a £50 million housing programme in Peterboro' to absorb those on the K&C waiting list.Did the two twits never consider the consequence of their ill thought through plan? It took local Conservative MP, Stewart Jackson, to point out its crass stupidity.
Peterborough has 9,000 to be housed....and worse, over 8,000 unemployed-and rising.
If these two were trying to concoct a recipe for social and economic disaster this could not be bettered!
The Dame has been asked what she thinks the solution to London's housing problems is. Well, the priority is to have intelligent and expert people thinking through a London wide solution....not a couple of 'no hopers' like Cockell and Cereste plotting a one off solution.
What you don't do is dump thousands of people on an already over-stretched council like Peterboro'.
What you do do is consider(if they exist) areas of the country which could safely absorb smaller numbers of incomers on a gradualist basis.
