Welcome back Ho Hum, it's good to see you posting again.
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.”
― William Faulkner--
This does appear to revolve round the massive change that is happening in Havering. I haven't devoted too much brain power to this as I don't believe it will ever happen.
We are unfortunately inextricably linked to London and the GLA and I don't see how Havering can be separated from it.
The London Fire Brigade, The Metropolitan Police, The London Ambulance service, TfL, Barking Havering and Redbridge university hospital trust, yes we may keep Queens Hospital but will we lose the vital services they share with Barts, UCL, King George's, Great Ormond Street just to list a few?
The problem appears to be housing targets set by Sadiq Khan and the concreting over of Havering. Unfortunately if you sell off all the countries social housing and stop local authorities from building new, have 20 year stagnation in private sector home building and at the same time have a policy of uncontrolled immigration then you will have a self-inflicted housing shortage not seen since the end of WWII.
I look at the last 20 years of development in Romford where I live and ask a simple question:
Is Havering a better or worse place than it was 20 years ago.
Unfortunately in my opinion it is immeasurably worse and will continue unabated and degenerate into an inner city slum.
We haven't inherited the earth from our parents, we have borrowed it from our children.
