Prescott lets 3,600 buildings
take bite out of green belt
October 23, 2005
JOHN PRESCOTT, the deputy prime minister, has given the go-ahead to one of the largest building programmes ever to be allowed in the green belt.
The decision to build 3,600 homes and businesses around Stevenage, Hertfordshire, has infuriated environmentalists and residents, who have been campaigning against the plan for a decade.
They say that such decisions undermine the entire system of green belt designation which is meant to protect countryside in perpetuity.
Stevenage council, however, is delighted at Prescott’s decision. The council argues that the town, which has a population of 80,000, is suffering acute shortages of both social housing and larger executive homes.

When I was younger I went drinking in pubs in my area. Because families lived closer together and pubs were frequented by the older generation there was always someone in the pub who knew my family. So if I was out-of-order [ adjectif ] this info would trickle back to my parents. Now we have big city centre pubs with only young people in, families spread around the country and if a youngster drinks too much and started fighting their parents would never know and start disciplining them.

is being greeted in the United States.

Out of Africa
Zimbabwe was once seen
as one of the success stories of Africa after colonialism.
But there are pictures which still tell a tale of division.
In 1999, the issues are black and white,
but also about corruption and class
