I am all for shops and offices - but not at the expense of people who are living in garages, 'couch surfing' or sleeping in their cars at night! Like many, many others in the city we are still having to pay full rates for houses we cannot live in and some people cannot even access their homes. I applaud the actions of those who highlight the plight of our citizens who are in dire straits. The elderly, some as old as 80, are being told to get a mortgage to finance a move if they can't afford it. This is utterly outrageous. The council and CERA must re-home these people as a priority.
So, as the city plants the seed of protest for social improvements (and what place in the world has never done that eh?) I also managed to plant some of these in pots as I'm not convinced that I will be in a new home by Christmas or spring time!! I might take bets on what comes up first, my bulbs or my house!
