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...

If anyone is minded to encourage our MP to crack on and drop Brexit, these guys have put together a helpful site:

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.

Re: Hotel above M&S

Yep. The undeground remains for M&S. The outside spaces will be for the hotel.
You do indeed get free parking at the Heart for 2 hours if you spend a tenner at Sainsbury's.

The high street will continue to decline as we all just get stuff sent to our homes instead,

Re: Advice on Newlands Close, Hersham - ex council house for sale

I hope you don't mind me reaching out but there is an ex-council property for sale in Newlands Close, Hersham, that I am interested in. Welcome to the forum Cara (nice to have someone new who isn't a Bot). Can I object to you "reaching out" on the basis that we are not in America, and I can't see y...

Re: Walton Housing Market

or could it be (and this is a long shot I know) that the UK Government attempting to destabilise the whole country via Brexit is making a lot of people cautious about making big investments?

Re: Trains taking the Strain

Plus, signal failures on our line are frequent. There is clearly a need for new signalling equipment rather than endless bodged repairs.

Re: Licence to Bike

not sure I agree with you John that most drivers look. Passengers can also be an issue (particularly those in black cabs). That said, any sensible cyclist will give cars parked a wide berth to avoid being doored. My reading of the article is not that the Dutch reach will be "law" but that it will be...

Re: Excel pool. Filthy

For what it's worth, I visited on Sunday. The place really is falling to bits. First locker I tried in the family change was broken - lifeguard had to abandon his post to help me retrieve the cash. The place was filthy as usual. The main pool was really cold. And then to top it off, junior teapot wa...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

It does seem to be a pattern.
Even the Sports Hub now seems to be complete without delivering all that was promised in the plan.

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

There was, the CCG address that in the FAQ: Buying a new stand alone, shell building that forms part of a proposed new, mixed use development being led by the Council on a site 400m away at Stompond Lane. The cost of this option was far beyond the funds available and could not be pursued. So basical...
