Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

It's interesting to look at the data. Most of the objections seem to be from an orchestrated boiler plate campaign, and numbers have been increased by submitting a letter for each member of a household. Most of the support letters are from existing patients of Fort House Surgery who cannot get membe...

Re: 12-16 High Street

they have cleverly gone for a design that takes it up to the height of the flats at the heart, but in a stepped way that reduces the initial impact. The artists impressions show minimal impact. The main people affected will be those with flats in the heart that will be looking at the new flats rathe...

Re: Aldi coming back

What I can't tell is how they intend to stop other shoppers using that car park? Why would they want to? It's a public car park. Whether M&S survives is down to M&S I think. Given that they keep getting rid of my favorite things, i don't think they need any help from competitors to put themselves o...

Re: Pizza Hut

500k is a lot of money for a 3 bed home. Particularly when you can buy one in Walton for £350 to 375k !

Re: Time to close this site?

It seems to go up and down depending on whether people have anything to moan about / share. Bridge building with Hersham Hub would certainly help, but i doubt it would happen. I'm not sure new sections would make much of a difference. The General section is for anything non-walton, and it's fairly c...

Re: Exit Brexit

But, it could, and most certainly would, be argued that such a move would be acting against the referendum, and thus undemocratic. Only if the argument was poorly constructed. We have this absolutely unrealistic approach in politics that learning or changing your mind is an impossible thing and som...

Re: Exit Brexit

I would appreciate it If we could try to take a deep breath and be constructive though. For example John, what aspect of the Cabinet has been proven corrupt in your view? i know there are links being investigated between donors to Leave.eu and the Conservative party, that Hunt has a number of dodgy ...

Re: Exit Brexit

Can we argue nicely please? This is a contentious topic, but let's please try to fight using coherent arguments and without getting personal - otherwise we are in the realms of the Monty Python argument sketch. For my part, I don't think a second referendum is undemocratic - a referendum is literall...

Re: Exit Brexit

i was in the second referendum camp, but I actually think it would be better if the Government just grew a pair and put out a statement along the lines of: "You voted to leave the European Union. It seemed like a good idea. Many of us felt that we could achieve a better situation for our country. We...

Re: Raab fights on

His latest trick seems to be to pose for photos at the local food bank, apparently devoid of any embarrassment that it's his party that has created the demand for food banks in the first place.

You couldn't make it up.
