This is the level where the bridge from the car park, above and across the road below, leads straight to an entrance to Primark and thence to the Guildhall shopping mall . This ...

According to this there was a three line whip https://metro.co.uk/2021/11/16/millions-of-pensioners-to-lose-out-as-mps-vote-to-scrap-triple-lock-15608051/ She could always have rebelled or found an excuse/reason not to be there. And she's defied the whip before. On 15 November 2018 she submitted a letter of no confidence in Theresa May's leadership. In October 2020, Morris was one ...

Rented accommodation need not necessarily be someone else's home. It could just as easily be part of someone else's property business portfolio.

Their financial circumstances are such that much as they might like to buy their own home they just cannot do so. And on top of that now it seems there ...
