Our lives will be disrupted

The latest prediction of the population rise in Britain is mind-boggling.

A great deal of our beautiful countryside will be swallowed up with new roads and extra housing.

Government laws and councils will be riding roughshod over green belts, that were previously excluded from any housing or development.

This mayhem is not what the British people voted for, fought for and, in some cases, died for.

Their lives will be seriously disrupted in every sense, the whole infra-structure undermined.

Although no-one could have predicted the scale of the mass influx of migrants, a great deal of the problems we now face could have been avoided had their been some intelligent forward-thinking from the Government.

There should have been some positive actions taken, with new laws introduced.

But sadly we do not have anyone of that calibre in the Cabinet, just, in my opinion, a group of ditherers.

Our present Parliament has proved itself to be ineffective, because it is too eager to appease, and lacking true grit.

Seemingly incapable or afraid to make important decisions.

As for the House of Lords with their 800-strong members, what have they contributed?
