Political reality

Over in Hammersmith and Fulham, the Tory run council is selling off nine buildings that house charities (Evening Standard, 8th feb, p8).
"Critics say the move will force the closure of up to 30 community groups and leave thousands of vulnerable residents without support."
"One of the buildings, Palingswick House, which houses 22 charities, is expected to be sold to author Toby Young's West London Free School." Oh, that's alright then...

Over here, in my 'hood, the Labour run council's not much better. It plans to sell its council offices in Kings Cross and build brand spanking new luxury offices in its place, with leisure centre and library apparently, oh lucky staff! (Camden New Journal, 27 Jan P. - sorry can't find my copy! Tis on internet though!)

Meanwhile children's centres are threatened with closure and painfully, community centres are shutting down forcing pensioners and disabled out protesting. Watch this heartbreaking youtube vid:

A similar thing is probably happening near you, probably happening in Hammersmith and Fulham.

Oh I Don't Know
I Don't, Know
I Don't Know
