Hi Luke,
Can't find an email address for you so I'm asking here if you might be interested in adding The Clapton Panel website to your links?

www.claptonpanel.wordpress.com

and there's my Beecholme & Casimir TRA site

www.beecholme.blogspot.com

I'm secretary of both - and on the RLG - the top level of the Hackney Homes resident involvement structure.

I will, of course, reciprocate.
Best wishes,
David White.

Looking at todays shocking polls I can't see how Brown will last another month. Labour are looking at a disaster scenario and we could see Labour behind the Lib dems come the next election.

I honestly think Brown will be forced to call an election this year. If he leaves it any longer the outcome may be worse.

Depressing as we could end up with a Tory government for 18 years-but then Labour carried on the Thatcherite policies and has equalled the Tories in its privatisation and pro rich support.

AS far as I'm concerned any change is better than no change at all. No matter what government gets in next it will be better than this vile bunch.

Just look at what Labour have planned if they win. Terror legislation, ID cards, Enforcement Bill...hardly sounds like a social government to me....more like fascism.


Get Labour out.
