What do you do when you want to concrete all over the South’s green belt?

Well if you’re this government you call the developments ‘eco’ towns and pretend that instead of destroying the environment you are actually protecting it. Sadly for Brown’s plans it looks like the great British public are seeing through the scam.

Now even the likes of Janet Street-Porter are complaining. Not in her back yard you don’t.

Ms Street-Porter also questions the competence of Housing Minister Caroline Flint for flashing her notes to photographers. Really Ms Street-Porter, I should have thought you above all else would have realised that pushy Ms Flint was more interested in flashing her legs than in covering up her notes. Whew! I say!
