Re: SCAMS

A new very hostile scam call this morning and rather unusually to my mobile phone number. The scammers faked the CLI number to make it look like the call was coming from Bradford. It started with with an announcement that was a grave and very false warning that HMRC has instigated a fraud case again...

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

I know of some extremely sad and very regrettable events locally, the passing of some people before their time and the recovery of many more thankfully. None of that knowledge is directly observed. It is information shared by loved ones, friends, acquaintances and colleagues. This picture will be ve...

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

In short. HMG has been unable to demonstrate it can report and publish accurate numbers upon which we can rely. At nations level and at local authority level numbers appear to vary depending on who is making the announcement, in what circumstances and in which form. Politicians say one thing, scienc...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

I had a negative view of you and his other critics. Oh how most people, who have not encountered one, are sceptical and smile or laugh when the concept of red-mist attacks are explained to them for the first time. The laughter stops when it happens to them. Most times for the most minimal or imperc...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

It's difficult to not be inflamed when you are being defamed. Scots law and English law have different definitions with very different mixes of common law and statutory provisions. So when dealing with defamation, libel and slander it requires careful and distinctive consideration. Defamation occur...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

Unfortunate is one word that CB does not understand and its not present in his lexicon of vitriolic expressions of hatred used in an outright and uncontrollable persecution of selected victims. Only one person doxed him - Chris Beach himself. It was he, if anyone was accountable, who may or may not ...

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

A narrative that is almost 10 minutes long from Led By Donkeys. It describes a timeline and it says a lot. Some will undoubtedly see it as scaremongering. The more sensible will see it as a warning about how ineffective HMG have been mainly because they seem to be unable to make any decision on a ti...

Re: Local Government Boundary Commission - Lewisham final proposal for Wards

Perhaps I vested too much faith in the blurb. But then it seems to make sense as the effort to equalise councillor representation we see are made at ward level. Could it be assumed that constituency adjustments are made in parallel perhaps? Even be a function of the equalisation of wards ? I see fla...

Local Government Boundary Commission - Lewisham final proposal for Wards

Local Government Boundary Commission yesterday (30 June 2020) published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements with revisions for Lewisham ward boundaries. Only two wards remain unchanged and Lewisham will gain two new wards and lose one. It is estimated that the Lewisham electorat...

We have one of those: it's called "line of sight" :)
Love it.

Re: Freeview reception problems?

Transmission bands in the UK were "cleared out" somewhat starting over two years ago to accommodate 5G. The Freeview bods restructured their bands and decreed that older forms of external aerials were no longer technically suited for the job of receiving the re-organised bands and offered free aeria...

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

I think our poor opinions on the Daily Mail are pretty much in step collectively. It is always interesting to see that the scope of their news coverage and the journalism behind it is very broad. In my view it is the editorialising of every piece to include a significant and constant thread of divis...

Thank you for the DM thing - I got it about that rag when I was a boy, just after I realised what the DT was.

Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

The Daily Mail reports that of the 36 areas where Covid-19 cases are RISING, 15 are in London Boroughs, all this as Leicester becomes the first place in the UK to be locked down once more after a local flare-up has been identified there. Of these 15, Wandsworth would appear to be closest geographica...

Re: Freeview reception problems?

Changes to channels which need a TV retune are unlikely to affect reception. I'm not sure a directional app would help either given we know where the transmitter is next door, because I found that one small flat panel aerial randomly placed worked straight away for all channels, yet in another room...

Re: Freeview reception problems?

Should also have mentioned this. I use a free app called "Find Antenna" for iOS that has a compass-style direction finder that points precisely to transmitters. I am unsure whether there is an Android equivalent. It's excellent at ensuring aerials of all types are aligned accurately to the correct t...

These facts just make me wonder how unique Chris is. Has anyone who in in touch with what happens in other areas aware of anyone else like him, doing what he does? I'm very aware of what happens in Oxford, and there is nothing comparable there Tim - some very astute observations. This I suspect is ...

Re: Bell Green car park

I for one did NOT know that.

Key information and a good basis, perhaps, for never paying one of these money extraction notices.

Thank you.
