A comment from 27th May
I think it would be helpful if people went and saw the film "Nomadland". People bought houses when they were affordable for people on modest incomes, jobs were secure in a way they are no longer and though people say 'they paid their taxes' there was tax relief on mortgages. Described as a 'middle class perk' by Gordon Brown when he abolished it. The house buying generation of the 1970's and 1980's would be wise to remember this.
I read this comment and thought "slightly barbed? .......OK then, I'll go and see it"
So I took myself off to the newly re-furbished Regal in Stowmarket. Owned by the council it's been closed for over a year for a huge building project. And now the place we all used to hang-out every Saturday night in the late 60's has turned into a fantastic 3 screen theatre/cinema.
