Coal shed for a home

Britain is so overcrowded we have to turn coal sheds into homes.

A coal shed in Orkney that was converted into a one-bedroom cottage has been commended by a new scheme, which aims to bring empty buildings back into use.

The Scottish Empty Homes Partnership, run by Shelter Scotland, claims there are about 25,000 empty homes around the country that could be made habitable. Innovative projects for bringing disused properties back into use were celebrated yesterday at the Scottish Empty Homes Conference in Glasgow.

499779657Housing minister Margaret Burgess announced further support for the scheme, saying: “Empty homes are a scar on the landscape in many cities and towns across Scotland. While building new, affordable housing is a key priority, making best use of existing stock is also important. Bringing empty homes back into use is a cost-effective way of increasing the supply of housing available to families across Scotland’s communities.”

The minister announced an additional £55,000 of funding to help local authorities work with property owners to bring buildings back into use.

Talking about Scotland

downingstreetdavidDavid Cameron has announced a Home Office proposal to ban the sale of alcohol for less than 45p per unit in an effort to target heavy drinkers.

Hold up though he’s a bit behind the times isn’t he. The Scottish Parliament passed the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012 on 24th May 2012. The bill received royal assent on 29th June 2012.
The ‘sweaty socks’ (Jocks) then found themselves being challenged on the 19th July 2012 by two trade bodies, the Scotch Whisky Association and the European Spirits Organisation, who have been granted judicial review of the legislation at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

Shouldn’t Downing Street David have waited to see the result of that case before the taxpayer has to fork out millions in some long drawn out duplicate court case?

Come on Cameron wake up and smell the lager!

Talking about the UK being overcrowded earlier

Acting on intelligence, officers visited three Manchester Superstores on Wednesday 28th November.
At Cannon Street they arrested two illegal immigrants a 33-year-old Pakistani man and a 39-year-old Ukranian. At the Lonsight store they arrested a further two illegal Pakistani men aged 32 and 34 and at Ayres Road Superstore they arrested a 25-year-old Pakistani man for working in breach of his visa conditions.

In Liverpool they visited TAK Supermarket Cash and Carry on Smithdown Road and arrested three Pakistani men, two employees aged 23 and 25 for working illegally having overstayed their visas and the manager of the store aged 44 for assisting unlawful immigration.
