If the paperwork provided to various government depts were not 'mislaid' then MPs wouldn't have such a large workload...agree?
Having just read that my local MPs have an increased workload dealing with people's problems thus increased expenses, I tweeted the above. Who will cover people's expenses (printing or photocopying requested and re-requested documents) which come out of their day to day living expenses, so less to live on? - What do you think? Let me know via the Help Desk please...

|Happy residents make a happy country but it amazes me how much bullies, whether individuals, governments, corporations or any other group can make life so miserable and stressful particularly when making and keeping money is more important than people.
A residents association is a group that meets regularly to discuss housing, community or environmental matters affecting their block of flats, estate or houses. Residents could be made up of tenants, leaseholders or freeholders, although each resident may have their own particular problems based on whether they rent their home or own it either under a lease or freehold.
The point to remember is that ALL are residents collectively and should, therefore, include anyone - regardless of whether they rent or own their home. The main thing is that residents endeavour to work together to improve the physical conditions of where they live, campaign for better facilities or create or improve the sense of community in their area.
What affects one person (or several) can affect everyone in the block or area - at the same time - what better way to get to know the people around you, whether it is to interact socially or prevent crimes and anti-social behaviour.

Otter Attic Mission! (Part 1 of 5)
At dinner last night, Teddy and I got some interesting (and very exciting!) news. Otter Keeper told us all about a room in the house that we didn’t even know existed: the attic!
The attic is the room right at the top of the house, and when it was built nobody remembered to build stairs up to it. Otter Keeper says the attic is very dark and is used to store things we don’t need but also don’t want to throw away. I can’t believe he’s only telling us about it now!

BBC Two delves into the nation’s pest infested
homes with the help of 'The Ladykillers'
BBC Two has commissioned a new four-part series, The Ladykillers (working title), made by KEO Films. The series will follow three female pest controllers as they visit homes and businesses across the UK to help with their infestations. Using high-tech cameras and equipment, the series will show the pests as they have never been seen before, from bed bugs to rats, from wasps to foxes, and offer advice on how to get rid of them.
A house-proud nation, Britain’s homes are increasingly sanitised with shiny floors and carpets and immaculate kitchen surfaces. However, lurking beneath a seemingly glistening façade is a host of unsightly pests and bugs. And now, they are getting smarter – poison and traps are becoming ineffective as they build up resistance. More and more people are calling on pest control services to help reclaim their homes and in this series, pest controllers Janet Dixon, Imogen Levinson and Angela Chetter Sloan visit homes and businesses experiencing problems on a large scale, to help rid people of these unwanted guests.
