    人民公敵下台 化解政治危機

    政治一天已經太長,尤其是在群眾運動風起雲湧的時候。

    佔中行動藉着大、中學生罷課和黃之鋒被捕把社會大眾的情緒推向高潮時趁機發難,於上周六凌晨宣布提前佔中,不到二十四小時,以梁振英為首的「四人幫」(其餘三人為政務司司長林鄭月娥、保安局局長黎棟國和警務處處長曾偉雄)召開記者會後便下令警察暴力清場,但隨即卻催化全民民主運動的誕生;民眾已經自發地走上街頭,組織起來。

    至執筆時(周二)為止,群眾已先後佔領金鐘、銅鑼灣和旺角,只要持續下去幾天,很快便會發揮示範效應,在全港十八區遍地開花,出現名副其實的佔領香港運動。

  • Strategic Planning and Housing Crisis: the Sino-British Tales

    Strategic Planning and Housing Crisis: the Sino-British Tales

    Thursday, 18 September 2014

    We have slowly climbed out from the longest and deepest recession since the publication of comparable data in 1955. The dominant news headlines have also returned to the pre-recession favourites – the strong rising house price trends, especially in London and the South East. Figures from the second quarter of 2014 show that the average UK house price is around £186,000, but over £400,000 in London; which represents an 11.5% annual increase for the country and a big leap of over 25% in London. Considering the average starting salary for graduates is around £20,000 and slightly more in London, it is not a surprise that there is major ‘housing affordability’ crisis in this country.

    Tackling the housing shortage will be one of the next Labour government’s top priorities.

    That’s because for many people the dream of home ownership is slipping out of reach. Under this government, home ownership is at its lowest level since the 1980s. That should be no surprise, when it is presiding over the lowest level of house building in peacetime since the 1920s.

    Since the last time UK voters went to the polls, a huge shift in the landscape of British society has become clear. For a country that has long taken home ownership for granted, the number of people who are able to afford it has been falling. As a result, the number of people stuck renting from private landlords has doubled in the past decade.

  • Why does older people housing matter for all of us?

    Why does older people housing matter for all of us?

    Thursday, 18 September 2014

    Age UK has recently published its 'Housing in Later Life' report looking at some of the key issues affecting the housing choices available to all of us as we get older. This coincides with a number of important policy developments including the announcement of a new accessibility standard for all newly built homes, an increased focus on the deployment of adaptations services to help older people live independently, the Care Act 2014 placing greater emphasis on the role of housing in the delivery of health and social care, and calls for a dramatic increase in the supply of retirement housing to extend the options available to older people.
