Cuts could force thousands out of homes

It seems claims that 200 thousand people could be forced out of their homes over new housing benefit cuts could be wide of the mark.

The Telegraph asked all of London's councils how many people claimed more than the proposed cap.

Around 17,000 people could be effected. Although in areas like Sutton, only 10 people claim over the amount.

Calling all Charities: FREE Quality Printing
Expenses rising when running a charity, mean funds dwindling. So, donations that charities work so hard to accumulate can be significantly reduced on running costs.

Neil Forrest, director of the popular is running Print for Links, a campaign to exchange links for free printing. If you have a little space for a link in your homepage, you can get thousands of pounds worth of printing. He is calling on charities, local or nationwide to take up his offer.

Neil wanted to do something to help charities who typically rely heavily on printing for their promotional material. “With the rising cost of paper and materials,” he declared, “printing costs can be astronomical.” For a smaller charity it can be disastrous.

“As a printer, the best way we can support charities is by doing what we do best...printing,” explains Neil. “At we are offering printing free of charge for charities which have a good page ranking and following.” All he asks in exchange is a link to his top ranking site from their home page. “A simple text link will do, nothing fancy.”

For charities with a page ranking lower than 5, Neil can still help them by offering discount codes, to include their supporters with commission to the charity for every order placed.

If a charity doesn’t know its page ranking, it’s an easy process to explain and Neil can talk anyone through if they get stuck. For more information contact Neil on: m. 07921 308 799 or T: 0207 566 5090;

Deputy Prime Minister opens pioneering learning centre in Sutton

Nick Clegg today said it was vital that young people were “not held back by the dead weight of the previous generation’s debt” as he opened a pioneering learning centre.

The Deputy Prime Minister spoke out as he visited the Sutton Life Centre in Sutton, south London, which aims to teach children about citizenship using the latest interactive, cinematic technology.

Its futuristic Life Skills Zone houses an indoor street resembling a movie set and a multi-media studio, where 360 degree screen projections can be depicted on the walls to create a range of 'virtual worlds' from onrushing trains to the destruction of the rainforest.

Mr Clegg praised the “innovative” centre for providing children with a “sense of confidence and optimism” adding: “Every single child – irrespective of birth – should be given the start in life they deserve – that is what a fair, liberal society looks like.

“I believe as a government it’s extraordinarily important that we clear the slate so that young people are not held back by the dead weight of the previous generation’s debt.”
