Under-40s worse off as result of state pension changes, data shows | Money | The Guardian
[ how do you save up when you can afford housing (nor even a mortgage, have credit cards (drinks and presents), and student loan. all the while tories help to prop-up the property bubble, the only wealth uk households actually have! ] Most people now in their teens, 20s and 30s will be worse off as a result of changes to the state pension system, while millions of older people will gain, according to the government’s own figures. The data will fuel concern that millions of younger people are suffering from the effects of what has been dubbed “intergenerational unfairness”, partly caused by the government targeting money and resources at the older generation. DWP issued the data to back up its assertion that the introduction of the new flat-rate state pension in April “will make millions of people better off” – but the figures also provide stark confirmation that younger people will be losers from the changes.

UK's most expensive city facing 'catastrophe' - BBC News
shortage of supply = unaffordable = nobody can afford to live there, work there, study there. or have to commute from out of town for 1 hour or more. // this is not only a problem in Oxford. NHS Grampian has problems of recruiting because unaffordable house prices and rents pushed up by Oil Industry and the lack of new housing. Same for teaching jobs. // all the while building companies make pumper profits and even skirt around the edges to lower the ratio of social and affordable housing they have to provide with each new big project. its in their interest, if prices were to fell, they would make less money. so they build not enough to keep up with demand at all. and not enough so each new builds profit rises because of risen demand and people willing to pay more for the same house or flat from previous year or two or three despite no real improvement in the build technically/energy efficiency wise/or architecture wise - modern, wide open, big windows. //

What is the outlook for Britain's steel industry? - BBC News
UK steelmakers want lower business rates, a relaxation of emissions targets for heavy manufacturers, more compensation for high energy prices and a commitment that British steel is used in major construction projects. "We've set out some of the things government can press ahead with now to send out a clear signal of support in the very short term," said Gareth Stace, director of UK Steel. [...] How does the government act without going against its free market principles and breaking EU rules? It has already provided steel makers with millions of pounds in compensation for carbon permit costs. Beyond that it says its hands are tied by strict European Union state-aid rules. [ << targeted welfare vs lower energy prices and a smart grid for all ] //&! bbc.in/1GhJaoH - Unions want the government to take "urgent short-term action" to support the industry. [...] the steel industry globally was facing one of the most difficult times in its history. [...] we can't change the price of steel.

It’s George Osborne who will shape Tory prospects for 2020 | Gaby Hinsliff | Comment is free | The Guardian
Power is leeching from David Cameron, and the colder, more ruthless chancellor is in the spotlight [...] Osborne’s big problem, of course, is that his fingerprints are all over everything the government has done – or not done – to tackle these problems over the last five years, let alone over the next five. And that’s not the only factor limiting his prospects of promotion He’s almost as exposed as Cameron is to fallout from the EU referendum gamble. (Heads we quit the EU, and government heads will have to roll; tails we stay, triggering Tory civil war).

Bank of England concerns over buy-to-let boom - BBC News
The growing buy-to-let property market in the UK could post a threat to wider financial stability, a Bank of England committee has said. [...] Buy-to-let mortgage lending had the potential to "amplify" a housing boom and bust, the Bank's Financial Stability Committee (FPC) concluded. Lending in this sector has risen by 40% since 2008, the FPC said. It stopped short of suggesting any intervention by government or regulators at this stage. "The FPC is alert to the rapid growth of the market and potential developments in underwriting standards," the committee said.

With Hinkley Point, squandermania has reached dangerous new heights | Simon Jenkins | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ cutting renewables, sure. how about 24bn for renewables and SmartGrid 10 years. Duh. And no energy price tariff guarantees needed. ] The only two versions of the EDF pressurised water reactor under construction, in Finland and France, are way behind schedule with doubled budgets. For £24bn you can read anything you like. It is the auto-da-fé of Treasury control. The person who should be laughing is Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn. Hinkley Point competes with HS2 and possibly a new Heathrow runway for the title of “world’s stupidest megaproject”. [...] When Centrica, the last British investor, pulled out of Hinkley in 2013, it did so because not a single adviser thought it a sensible bet.

BBC News - Millennials, not Mumsnet: Younger women and the 2015 election
Radio One DJ Gemma Cairney, 29, said that for many of her generation, politics was a "complete other world", which many could not even get up the energy to feel let down by. Many were in debt - which created a whole new reason not to register to vote. "They are afraid to register because that means the bailiffs know where they live," she said. But what can politicians do to appeal to "millennial" voters? [...] Sexism in the male-dominated corridors of power was highlighted by columnist Ms Gordon. She said she had once been called a "slut" to her face by an MP who went on to become a minister. "You have to sweep that culture out," she said - and using quotas to get more women into Parliament was one way to do it. [...] About 22% of MPs are women - "20% of us is not enough", she said. "I think it's quite damaging for democracy."

Demnach wollen sie vor allem eines: "Sich schöne Dinge leisten können." [...] Walter Grünzweig, Professor für amerikanische Literatur und Kultur an der Technischen Universität Dortmund und Träger des Ars-Legendi-Preises für exzellente Lehre, macht für die Entwicklungen auch die Politik verantwortlich. Der einzige Zweck, den Hochschulen seit der Bologna-Reform noch zu erfüllen hätten, sei es, "Schmalspur-Absolventen" für den Arbeitsmarkt zu produzieren. "Wir erziehen eine unpolitische, antiintellektuelle Generation", warnt Grünzweig, der bei den aktuellen Studenten von einer Generation "unter extremem Druck" spricht. [Muendige Buerger? Ne ...]

The Rise Of Europe's Religious Right
For the most part, though, issues dear to social conservatives were a side issue in elections driven heavily by economic frustration. [...] The suddenness with which social conservatives became a force in Brussels has many progressives speculating that they are the creations of American social conservatives seeking to “export the culture wars.” [...] Today, American ties seem much more about a shared vision to build a global conservative movement rather than leaning on stronger and wealthier U.S. partners for support. // http://www.salon.com/2014/02/28/the_dying_right_why_christian_fundamentalists_are_in_panic_mode_partner/ || Pro Progressive - the hard things are hard bc they are worth doing it. It's easy to turn ones back. But its hard to hold your face into the storm that is brewing. Holding onto status quo is not worth the struggle, it is a futile short-term view - as the status quo is not sustainable.
