Who Could Resist?

Brighton and Hove City Council is hoping the private sector can work with it to provide homes for “some of the world’s most vulnerable refugees”.
The city has already taken 13 Syrian households as part of the national Vulnerable Person’s Resettlement Scheme.
An offer you can't refuse..? I suspect it soon will be.
The Government funds local authorities for refugees arriving here...
I'mma stop you right there! 'The government' doesn't have any money. The taxpayer is on the hook, As always.

I know a woman that was 'made' homeless and went to the council. Her and her 2 teenage children were put in a 4 storey house in the centre of town. She relies on benefits and complains that when the conservatives came to power she had to take a cleaning job. She states that there is no point in her working as her earnings just come off her benefits. She said how pleased she was when labour was in power as she could stay home all day. This is just so you know that council's already work with the private sector and waste money by putting people in vast properties in town centres with no council tax to pay either. Then the council's say they have no money in their budget. You wonder why?

So the tumbleweed of political naivete is still alive and limply kicking in Brighton then?

My company tried very hard to get business done in Brighton, for very little profit, and much kudos.

The members and officers don't have a clue on what to do, spent ages in useless meetings etc, so we counted our losses and went elsewhere.

Shame really, but that sort of uncommercial attitude just puts the dead hand on anything which doesn't reek of blind stupidity.

Apart from a sense of self-respect, I suppose..?

Which explains why Green start ups do so well (for a short while)...
