the history of Leyton and Leytonstone
from . dot to … dots – with plenty of spaces

A long period of prosperity has made most people sufficiently content with government and politics to leave them to a small number who choose these areas for a career. Conflict is now more between different arms of government, for example hospitals which wish to minimise in-patient stays and local authority social services which struggle to support those unable to look after themselves until they have made some progress towards recovery.
In a multi-cultural society perhaps only government bodies can honestly claim to represent the whole population (and Leyton in the 21st century certainly has many cultures), which marginalises the whole of community life – all voluntary organisations. Political parties which aspire to government might also have a claim to impartiality.
