    At the end of Dan Yates address he says ‘ everyone deserves a brilliant family life’ Maybe so but over a third of Brighton and Hove residents are in single person households, 36.4 % , national average is 30.2 %.See B&H council stats based on 2011 census. I wonder what he means by family ? Fifteen years ago I moved to the City when my family of origin permanently rejected me because of my sexuality, I was seeking a ‘ family of choice ‘, a phrase coined by the LGBT community.
    You talk of the urgent need for better affordable housing, and health and social care needs, and the need for collaborative partnerships,with the City and its strengh in innovation.
    Have you taken into account the demographics, in your enthusiasm for ‘brilliant family life’?
