Re: Last night Wandsworth Town Hall was lit up in purple in memory of George Floyd

Good to hear.

I hope Wandsworth follows up with action that fixes the inequality in Wandsworth. And how that hits BAME residents harder than others

Re: What's your school doing re: opening 1 June?

Belleville has said not opening apart from key workers until at least 8th June. I don’t know what they’re struggling with so much, it sounds from the letter as though the challenge is the sheer amount of things to think through rather than one thorny issue. I’ve always found Belleville pretty pragma...

Re: Back to school?

I agree, the hysteria they created to keep people at home is now backfiring. The risk is low, the point was always to manage infections so that no one died because of lack of healthcare provision. It was never to stop everyone from getting it. The risk and damage from keeping people at home for long...

Re: LBoris victory

Nah. More people in the country voted for parties offering to remain or second referendum so hardly an endorsement of brexit.

Democracy doesn’t make me a sheep so I’ll not be following you off the cliff waving a union flag thanks.

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

I think the opposite. The poll analysis I read in the evening standard said any vote not for labour would put the tories in.

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

And as I posted elsewhere on this site, labour’s Marsha De Cordova has claimed around £35k of expenses in 2018/19 Compared to Tory Jane Ellison claiming annual expenses of around £160k!!

Re: Extra places in the pipeline at popular schools with £15m investment in local education

Meanwhile Wandsworth schools face a funding shortfall of £15m, that’s the gap between funds allocated and the amount they should have to keep up with real term increases. https://schoolcuts.org.uk For Belleville it’s the equivalent of 10 teacher salaries. Headline grabbing promises just before an el...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

I’d vote Lib Dem too if I believed they could win in Battersea. But it would take around 25000 people to change their vote as well, which isn’t very likely.
My fear is it just splits the anti-Tory vote and puts a Tory in.

Plus are we 100% sure they’ve ruled out another Tory coalition?

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

I’m no Corbyn fan. I like many of his policies and trust him to have low income people’s interests at heart. But he’s not taken racism nearly seriously enough or the tough decisions he should have done to deal with it. But Boris is an out and out lying racist homophobic misogynist who shows contempt...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

Julian - ‘there’s no more inequality then than now’ is just not true. BD398452-B336-46D0-B3FD-BBEA17BEB51A.png The Gini coefficient is the main measure of inequality and in the UK clearly leapt under thatcher. In 1980 the richest 1% got 5% of the country’s income. Today they get 15%. I’m not too wor...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

The chance of a straight labour win is tiny, non existent. A hung parliament sounds a good idea. Moderate the worst of both sides. I think it was only the lack of a Tory majority that stopped a no deal brexit. And you’re right it’s about so much more than brexit and I don’t trust Boris on any of it!...

Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

It’s a swing seat and the poster above was right that lib-Dems have no chance. Their share at the last election was 8% Battersea Wasn’t ‘long term tory’ Martin Linton represented Battersea for labour for 13 years (‘97-2010) before Jane Ellison Its a swing seat so our votes will count. The current pr...
