so, almost a point of balance then? Boris is flaky And so is Red Ken In short a throughly undesirable pair all together. Ken is ruining London and Boris will finish the job? I remember a famous quote of Ken from years back, about the only thing hes ever said I agree with. "If voting changed anything...

With his barmy ideas about motorised vehicles, [well he hates them[, and with his cock-eyed notions about them, he has, at a stroke ruled out from getting any work on, for instance, the Olympics, by the small builder or tradesman who cannot afford to uprate his diesel van/truck/lorry because Red Ken...

I knew Red Ken when he was causing no end of trouble at Brixton town hall, Now he is a pillock, a complete and utter tosser who has never done a days work in his life. About the only thing he has ever done I agree with is banning the giving out of goldfish as fairground prizes. Good for Boris I say,...

I`m not negative, I`m just wary, And as such I`m used to being sneered at by the "worldly wise" with their snappy little homilies. Nothing wrong with living in Peckermans Wood, I played in those woods before it was built. A nice spot to be with still, I imagine, unless all the trees have grown, fant...

hmmm A timber framed house too.... Am I right in thinking his house is leasehold still? If you must be nuts getting a mortgage on a house that will never be yours, nor, if it falls down will you have even the land it stands on as recompense.
