EU fears Theresa May 'will not be able to uphold Brexit pledges'

Exclusive: Keir Starmer says Brussels has ‘high expectations’ for PM’s speech but she must face down Boris Johnson’s ‘fantasy Brexit’ and adopt a real position

Brussels fears an enfeebled Theresa May will not be able to stand by any pledges she makes in this week’s major speech on Brexit but has dismissed Boris Johnson’s intervention as an irrelevance, according to the shadow Brexit secretary.

Following meetings with all the major players in the EU’s negotiating team, Keir Starmer said “high expectations” in Brussels over the prime minister’s speech in Florence on Friday were tempered by concerns over her weakness. (Guardian)

How does developing green belt help people live in London where the jobs are? Why is "speculative" planning permission with no intention to build desirable/acceptable? How is 320,000 homes or a third of all permissions over a 5 year period not high? If land with planning permissions but no houses is taxed appropriately, doesn't it stand to reason that house builders are better placed to profit by actually building them than landowners who do not?

It's about changing the relationship between landowners and those that use the land, incentivising people to be more active land users rather than inactive land owners.



Look at the commuter statistics. People are commuting into London from greater and greater distances. We need

(i) to enable the millions of people who commute from outside to live nearer (and to enable the increase of the millions who want to live in Lond to happen)

(ii) Allowing the City to grow enables businesses to locate further out: still within striking distance of the City

I am not at all surprised that a third of permissions don't happen. That is business: you get the permissions in case they are needed. If I'd been asked to guess, about what I'd expect. I doubt an LVT will make any difference at all to that.

Again, I support an LVT. A good idea. What I dispute is that it will be of much, if any, use in tackling the UK housing shortage. That needs government spending on infrastructure, and de-regulation of land use, both horizontally and vertically. Someone who thinks London is full of underdeveloped brown field hasn't looked into brownfield development. Brownfield development is the Simon Jenkins view: enough to refute it.

Someone who agrees is Chris Dillow, whose post we started this with (see our twitter exchange).


Lots of interesting stuff from both of you. I'm in favour of more building on the green belt round cities and towns, but I don't know about employers setting up in Outer London particularly. I can't think of many places having the public transport links to get people into work from more than one direction. Sure, if you're coming from Reading, Slough, etc, and your employer moves from Central London to Hayes, you might be delighted, and save a fortune on commuting overnight. But for other staff, the bit to Hayes is going to be extra, on top of the journey to the centre, and very bad.

There was a fair bit of work done from the sixties onwards with trying to beef up Outer London for employment as well as residential. My impression is that it's not been very easy. We can all crayon in orbital tubelines etc, but that's serious money.

Indeed,I don't give a toss what he thinks about be but will not remain silent when he needlessly throws shit sideways which spoils it.

Personal budgets: why do councils still call the shots on care?
Councils still assess eligibility and allocate resources, but we’ve known for decades that letting people choose and pay for their own care works better



There is a legal obligation to offer one as an alternative by the way.


DLA/PIP is a sort of mini budget,hence reducing/removing/in effect making contingent leads to vast amounts in taxi fares via Access To Work rather than a far smaller amount and access to the Motability Scheme ie. choice,increased independence,travelling not just for work purposes,hospital appointments etc,and savings.

Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked


Talk is cheap, building housing isn’t. The warm and conciliatory tone struck by Sajid Javid needs to be backed up by cold hard cash. Otherwise it is meaningless.

I'm not trying to suggest that there is any kind of question about the competence of the government, but it would have been handy if this could have been settled two weeks earlier, and so featured in start of year briefings on medical issues in school for staff.

I can imagine in an emergency someone shouting 'here's the school's spare one' and then trying to inject a student with one of the dummy pens used in training events.

I was quite good at taking penalties,largely because goalkeepers could hardly see me,never mind anticipate which way I would go.I got a knee injury which put paid to my non career.
