Mr Holburn said: "Whilst over 9,000 families were kicked out of their homes in the last three months for failing to keep up mortgage payments - mostly due to the recession caused by the banks - UBS and others financial giants are sitting on massive abandoned properties."
"We will also make space available for those that have lost their nurseries, community centres and youth clubs to savage government spending cuts."
Bloody good on them I say.

It'll be interesting to see how many other locations will up their 'ant' in reference to Security now this is in the wider domain, as we speak 'due to the colder winter climate will descend upon us they will recce further Buildings to Squat'

I don't think the Court's will see 'Public Repossession' in the way they'd like to,

Leveller is a friend of the avaricious, incompetent chancers that got the world into the mess it is in.

So they "took over" an empty building?

not exactly V for Vendetta, is it? When they blow up Parliament, then I'll be impressed.:headbang:

Tube train would probably be 20 minutes late and the army end up mowing down the population of London, daft masks and all.

This could be interesting and maybe more relevant than the feckless ******* outside St. Pauls.

1) Buildings being unoccupied long term is a disgrace
2) They will be off the streets and have somewhere to shit other than a church
3) They have the opportunity do demonstrate that they are about more than wind and water (although I suspect the gig will be hijacked by Save The Humpback Lesbian and Radical Feng Shui With Mu Tea brigade).

UBS (and others) could have taken the moral high ground by temporarily gifting empty buildings to responsible community groups like Yoof Clubs, Creches, Coffin Dodger Drop-in Centres etc (and avoid empty building tax in the process).

Watch and wait, but keep the bus engine warm.

Be interesting to see how much sharper UBS lawyers are than whatever deadbeats the Corporation employs.

Apparently the Crusties have already announced speeches by Palestinian activists…

Cue Jody McIntyre and his chariot of fire.

I support the protestors 100%. I'm no socialist and believe in free markets etc but something has to be done about the distribution of wealth. There is a 'Privilige Pyramid' in the UK which lets you know exactly where you stand whatever your contribution to society.

Peaceful power, eh? Let's hope these pikeys doing so much damage to global commerce and hegemony, are quickly put down. It's not as if there's ever been a historical precedent.
