  1. Latest figues show net migration running at 332,000. The question is where these people are going ? This is about the size of a middlish regional cities population being added every year. Given the shortage of housing, i wonder where they are living. By 2025 the population of the UK may exceed 70 million. That will require about 4 million new homes to be built by then. The answer may be to build mobile home sites, which can be set up quickly and potentially offer flexible affordable accommodation to people. This would be a better option than building too many expensive permanent homes, when some migrants may well return to their countries of origin.
  2. UK population up by 500k in the last year. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33266792 By 2025 UK population is likely to hit 70 million. What happened to the Tories tens of thousands target ?
  3. More than one in two people would switch to the "Bank of Dave" – the enterprise set up by David Fishwick, a Burnley businessman, to sideline the big lenders. Mr Fishwick wanted to offer an alternative to Britain's scandal-hit big banks but faced problems getting a banking licence from the regulator. He promised customers 5pc interest on their savings, using the deposits to lend to local people struggling to secure loans from the established lenders. But in the absence of a banking licence he was forced to lend his own money. According to a survey by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, 52pc of people would be happy to bank with Dave, with 64pc of those attracted by the interest rate on savings. Fifty-seven per cent liked the fact the all profits were to go to charity, while 41pc mentioned the lack of bonuses for bosses as the reason. A third simply said the found Dave to be "likeable" and a quarter trusted him more than the big banks. Mr Fishwick was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, "Bank of Dave" Mark Pearson, chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, said: "I think what David Fishwick has done is very admirable and it's no surprise that many people would get behind the idea and turn their backs on big banks if given the chance. "The fact that all profits go to charity is probably something that appeals to the general public, as they know that he doesn't have an ulterior motive to make millions from his idea."
