Bleak ?

Certainly , the question is how many villages / towns / cities will be like the situation as so described in the near future ?

Even those living in the South East / The Smoke will have seen areas like most described in Frances Ryan's article.

Almost like a parasite. Once established , will spread rapidly destroying everything in it's wake.

As for us , many will already be affected with nowhere to go , no one to turn to for a solution.

Work ? Even Trussells are seeing the largest rise coming from those in employment rather than benefit claimants.

Sad New World .... even the gloom is deepening.
