    See it more as a form of introspection.

    The fact is, many people don't actually LIKE THEMSELVES or who they are, and if that's the case there's little chance of them learning to like, or love, others. And those are the people who usually spend their whole 'lives' (read as miserable existences) as haters of everything and everyone, often with rather disastrous results.

    Or water - food -shelter. Oxygen you get whether you want it or not. Unless you're trying to live under the sea like Stromberg in 'The Spy Who Loved Me.' But he did have it all planned out, fair play to him.

    Oxygen (or rather clean air) is not a given in our cities anymore. Here in London there are primary schools next to busy main arteries like the north circular and the air around them is in breach of all standards. Rates of asthma are terrible. This is not good.

    Well that's different, Try living round here with an 8 lane highway just a couple of hundred yards away. Usually its windy so not so bad but on a warm, still day the air quality is horrendous. Diesel engines. I said that would be a disaster 20 years ago when they started incentivising them.

    For a very brief period in the 1950s, London's air quality improved when the Clean Air Act was passed. Then they tore up the tram lines and replaced the trams with diesel-fuelled buses.

    And now they are putting the trams back at massive expense whilst claiming they don't have enough money to run essential services...

    Indeed, and one of the reasons I wouldn't live in London if you paid me!

    In Bristol, the council spent millions planning a tram system before deciding they couldn't afford to build one.

    Absolutely, and I say that even as a diesel car-driver.

    I've often wondered though, what drove you to Stoke? With respect, it's not one of the nicest places, at least what I've seen if it, and the above (in bold) is just another reason NOT to live there... So was it your job that took you there or what? You don't have a partner or kids to think of, so you must've had choices.....

    Unless you had a very good reason to go to Stoke, IMHO, you'd have been far better off in Liverpool, and nearer your mum!
