Wishful thinking - It would be quite useful if SMBC could make it a condition of PP that the developers funded the widening of the bridge over the river (in a sympathetic style, of course).

At a previous presentation by a company considering a similar scheme I asked about car parking. I was told the area would be a mixture of small businesses and residential homes and their plan was that when the residents went to work the parking spaces would then be occupied by the business workers so no impact on the surrounding roads.  Who thought up that idea? I also asked where I would store my surfboard? This comflummoxed the representative totally, but living in Compstall where most cars are left on the road and even those with garages use the garages as storage space as generally they aren't big enough for a car, I felt this was an issue that really needed thinking about. Perhaps they did and had no answer so gave up.

Simone - It’s an interesting one, I’m actually a card carrying party member. I do frequently find myself disagreeing with things, but feel it is better to try and change things from within than leave. I will be voting in May, I have voted in every election I have been eligible to do so in. As you say, it is pretty much all we can do. But how much of a hypocrite would I be if I didn't vote.

Boden / Duke – I agree, the grass is always greener. However, take the CEO of a multinational or FTSE 100 or a Banker. I think pretty much 90% of the population would agree that if their salary equates to £1million or more a year plus pension they are rich.

My argument isn’t that they pay more tax personally, but, their companies should and they should pay their workers more, who for example earn below the average wage ( I realise this will distort the average) enough to live.

I seem to be answering a lot of questions with mine being ignored.

So, what about taking tax out of international competition?

Does any one person need a personal fortune into the billions whilst people in our country are going hungry?

I don’t profess to have the answers, it’ll take a much greater mind than mine to work them out, but, I do have a sense of fairness, experience of the poverty that is stalking the country and a feeling that a few very rich people have made it much worse for the majority.

It's interesting that people always believe that "the rich" are people who earn more than they do. For Andy, from what he has posted, it's people who earn "millions". For people who earn £25K ( the median salary/wage) it's people who earn £50K (witness the brouhaha over Child Benefit when people on these incomes were claiming they were part of the "squeezed middle", much to the derision of lower earners). People on the minimum wage look at people who earn £26K and think they are "richer" than them.

In world terms, of course, almost everyone in the UK is part of the "rich". I  remember reading a very interesting article in the Guardian just a few years ago when they said that if you live in the UK, have a salary of £30K and have a mortgage on a house, you are in the top 1% of the world's population.


It's a very good point, there seems to be a general feeling that we need more services to be paid for people who earn more than ourselves. It may have been a coincidence but when the last lot bought in their political time bomb of the 50pc tax in the last few weeks of their government, they set the level for the 50pc rate at that just above the salary for the PM. That feeling that someone else should pay goes right to the top!

Where was Jessie Field?

I believe Jessie Field was originally part of the Nab Wood Farm estate, see this Genes Reunited link.

I don't have a subscription to Genes Reunited but the public text reads as below
Chester Chronicle Cheshire, England 5 Sep 1863
Bnbtnit to SALE by PTJBLIC AUCTION, at the Warren Bulkeley Arms Inn, iv Stockport, on Friday, tbe 25th day of
LOT 11. A piece of very superior LAND, admirably adapted for building upon, being part of tbe said Nab Estate, called tbe Jessie Field, containing 2a. Or. 2Sp.. having a very considerable frontage to tbe said turnpike-road, and overlooking the Chadkirk


And looking at old maps it does indeed show Jessiefield as being quite close to Nab Estate.

It is all political ideology versus reality and there only ever has been and only ever will be one winner in that debate.

If you are going to wait for 'sensible debate' as you call it, to be 'forthcoming' then you probably know from your own experience that you are going to be waiting around for a long time.

We can't fall into a depression because somebody has a hole in their shoe. You can always form your own political party or stand for somebody else's if you feel so strongly about those that have and those that have not. Whether politicians are the ones that create the society or it is somebody else altogether that society exists and evolves. It also has fundamentals that will never be changed. The only thing that hopefully will change is that the general condition/freedom/standard for all will improve. So if we look back twenty five years say, (those of us that can) are our lives better than they were then and by that I don't necessarily mean with things we own although that has to be factored in.   

We live in a democratic country and the only contribution that most of us have is a vote.

Initially we have two choices, to vote or not to. From your comments Andy I take it that you are not going to, which of course is your decision. I will be voting, it is just that I don't know who for yet. That's the real debate, there isn't anybody reconciled with your ideas that is standing.

It is also worth remembering that no matter who you vote for the government always seems to get in.
