Oh my word really?

Do you have an independent advocacy there that you can approach? Is there a supplement you can claim instead? 50% seems a huge increase, too huge, is that legal?

I personally think governments and bankers are to blame, indeed - but I wouldn't cease the fingerpointing there. The greed-fest was all-consuming; so you must also blame the Media (that dirge of home-buying, quick buck, multiple mortgage enticement); the housing market, for inflating prices to a distasteful degree; the left and the right in academia, for succumbing to the greedfest too, with far too little out and out critique; and ordinary people - for believing that living on the never-never was sustainable and wholescale buying into the whole pathetic fantasy of growth and quick and easy bucks...

:)


But yes, now the party's over everyone is going to feel the pinch and it's gonna be a rough ride. Unless you have a private villa in the Bahamas...

richmond

they do provide a service, not sure of the cost they may do city wide ??
suggest if you need to access them you check out their website for information or call them if you cannot do it yourself do you have someone who can do it for you ??
hope this helps ??
Richmond operate in the Broomhill area near Partick as far as I know...

sorry

sorry do not understand advance statement, think you have to get your Doctor, CPN or Social worker to apply on your behalf ??
also it maybe for the elderly , the home help part, but you can get support worker service if you're mentally ill.
suggest you look at their web page, also GAMH, PENUMBRA and SAMH all provide support services.
