ABOUT THE PM
May, PC, MP (née Brasier; born 1 October 1956) is the
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the
Party, in office since July 2016. She has also been the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Maidenhead constituency since 1997. May identifies as a one-nation conservative and has been characterised as a liberal conservative. She is the second female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Conservative Party leader, following
Following the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron on 24 June 2016, May announced her candidacy for the leadership of the Conservative Party and quickly emerged as the front-runner. She won the first ballot of Conservative MPs on 5 July by a significant margin, and two days later won the votes of 199 MPs, going forward to face a vote of Conservative Party members in a contest with Andrea Leadsom. Leadsom's withdrawal from the election on 11 July led to May's appointment as leader the same day. She was appointed prime minister two days later, the second woman to hold both offices. On becoming Prime Minister, May became the first woman to have held two of the Great Offices of State.
It will be interesting to see if Theresa is any more effective at providing housing for those who are being bounced about by landlords who should operate more responsibly. If they don't behave themselves, fresh legislation should force them to act compatibly with Article 3 and protocol 1 Article 1 of the HRA 1998. We wonder what Nus Ghani has in store for Wealden on the affordable housing front, that if not tackled soon may become the item on Jeremy Corbyn's agenda to undo Theresa's Conservative Government.
How can anyone renting a property peacefully enjoy that property in the knowledge that their landlord will turf them out to be able to put their property back onto the housing market at much inflated prices, rather than face the perils of a rent assessment, when any raise in rents would be tested against what is reasonable.
This process constitutes mental torture to the victims of most modern Landlords.
Landlords can escape their social responsibilities by evicting a tenant and getting in another one. They will of course repeat the process again and again unchecked - adding to rampant inflation and defeating any moves towards a Circular Economy.
There should be a mechanism where landlords have to register the number of tenants who have occupied their properties. If any landlord is abusing the trust that the state has allowed them in operating unchecked in a free market, penalties should be applied.
It might be appropriate to maintain a register of Landlords, so that they may be struck off the register and not allowed to so trade for whatever period a court might ban them for. At the end of the day, renting property out for a living does not take a genius, it just takes money to earn money from those with lesser social status. It is a parasitic business, like leaches feeding off the blood of their hosts. A little less bloodletting please!
THE GUARDIAN - Ex MI6 chief Sir John Sawers tells of the sorry state the UK will be in after the divorce with the EU that is popularly referred to as Brexit. According to Sir John, we will suffer a lack of confidence, with the value of the pound already down by 15% as negotiations continue.
TRULY SUSTAINABLE HOUSING

DAVE - is quoted as saying that he had: "always believed in governing with
respect", promising to implement further devolution to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
What about respect for human dignity David? Is it right to allow the
wealthy to treat those who would normally buy their own home but cannot
because of the shortage of affordable housing - like cattle?
"That's another fine mess they got us into. Sweep it under the carpet luvee." "Maybe we need a bigger carpet."

A COURSE OF MALICIOUS CONDUCT
Your humble servant,
POTHOLE POLITICS - Will Theresa's politics be any better than David Cameron's. The state of the roads is a solid indication of how well any administration is working. Quite obviously, from the state of the roads in Sussex, we have a long way to go. This is a B class road and so it may be argued is less important than our A class roads and motorways. But, it is also true that important people are more likely to live out of towns that are serviced by B class roads. Those company executives and other business persons are the ones that need to get to work safely to earn the money for the UK that keeps the wheels turning.
PEPPER ALLEY - You'd have a job to avoid any pedestrian who had tripped over one of these potholes, especially where this is a two lane road during the rush hour traffic. But what happens if your suspension collapses and causes your car to slew into the other lane or even mount the pavement. The Government and councils are putting lives at risk by failing to provide us with roads to a reasonable standard. It is criminal negligence, with thousands of motorists coming a cropper in repair bills to their injured motor cars.
