Kevin Boylan joins us again tonight to look at an new Unregulated Collective Investment Scheme (UCIS) being set up in Bristol between St Mungo's and Resonance Ltd. called Real Lettings Property Fund (RLPF). The UK's light touch financial regulator, the FCA, don't like these funds and are already taking action against several of them in other parts of the country. The ten million pounds of public money is coming from Big Society Capital and Bristol City Council but Kevin has not been impressed with their reluctance to communicate with him.
Have the only charity in Bristol really helping the street homeless, St Mungo's, been taken in by Resonance? That's the question asked by Carl Mann, who has set up his own homelessness charity even though he is himself homeless. The charity is based on the Homeless 'Pay It Forward' idea from the US which Carl explains. He also enlightens us about how the City of London banksters use their bonuses to buy houses then re-mortgage them as a tax evasion scheme because they do not have to pay tax on the mortgage debt.
Then we're joined by Belinda Kirk from Bristol based Explorers Connect who believes we are becoming conditioned as adults not to have danger in our lives which is actually good for us. She points out that those who take more risks are happier, more healthy and actually nicer people according to scientific surveys! She brings together adults at her annual Base Camp Festival while her 'Wild Nights Out' are aimed at fundraising for childrens' charities to help kids get out of the cities. She is also a world record holder having rowed 2,000 miles around the UK in 2010 over 50 days
