With a Labour Government all the people who have approached me with there heart breaking stories will be rewarded with a leader and Prime Minister who listened, we will finally start to build council housing again.
Brighton and Hove City Council have begun the council waiting list cull, announced back in November 2015 the new allocations policy was designed to remove home seekers by cutting thousands of people from the register.
In a move in which literally the bulldozers are coming in to break down peoples hopes and dreams for a home.
Having spent all afternoon and morning in the housing department at Brighton and Hove City Council, I now have a wider awareness on the impact these revenge evictions are having on the council frontline staff, whose hands are sadly tied.
I have taken this blog down.
I was in the middle of a manic episode when I wrote it and I am being treated to overcome this illness.
I should not have written it and I am sorry.

Today I live day by day, I am now living in Temporary Accommodation and fight daily to improve peoples lives, I am not fully recovered, but I am educated and I can tell you now that the only solution for a better future is for people like you reading this blog post now to stand up, speak out and help to chance our society.
One member One Vote Gone! Sad Day for Democracy.
As a born and bred brightonian, I have been encouraged by the new members joining Labour, in my observations most of the arguments from the last year have been from the same voices making the same points, new members bring new ideas and energy, we don’t live in the labour bubble like most around the table tonight.
When will I get my forever home? When will my son get to be a child and have a home and normal bed time and routine. He’s the one that’s been punished not me!
