Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Julia Like a lot of watchers of progress on this case it is difficult to define what is thought of the observations you make . You describe very little of what is actually happening and what actions you have undertaken to bridge any differences that may exist in the community where it is located and...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

On 22 March, 2017, the Mayor & Cabinet approved a “Land Transfer to The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark for nil consideration for the duration of the lifetime of the school on that site.” This was the land on which the new classroom block was built, the old playground on the corner of F...

Re: London City Airport’s Airspace Modernisation Consultation & Our Future Skies

Here is a November 2020 update on Airspace Redesign, aircraft noise and the activities of ICCAN, the Independent Commission on Civil Aviation Noise from @ThorNogson . The pandemic has made our skies virtually devoid of aircraft movements - but matters may return to high levels of air-traffic in the ...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Maybe the area is being subject to particular attention. It may be a little like TV licencing - it is easy to see where a car once had up-to-date road fund licence - and now it doesn't - so let us compile a list of such vehicles in similar locations and go see if they are still on the road. And clam...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Long gone are the days of tax discs. You would need to do an online check using the index number. Additional benefit would be not only would it confirm whether the vehicles are taxed - but whether MoT's are up-to-date. Some smart phone apps will report on the status of vehicle insurance - but not su...

Re: 1.15 AM: tree felling or "boy" racers?

I did put up Parker1970's commentary by way of half an advanced warning that it was worth the double!

I have another tree-feller joke - but I won't tell it now.

I'll save it for later.

Re: 1.15 AM: tree felling or "boy" racers?

Ok Robin

Mick and Pat have emigrated to Canada and are looking for work.

They are out in the backwoods and stroll past a sign that says "Tree-fellers Wanted".

Mick turns to Pat and says:

"There's a great pity.

We can't go for it - there's only two of us "

Re: 1.15 AM: tree felling or "boy" racers?

Thank you Parker1970.

To remember all the jokes over the years is hard work - and to earn a "double" is a real achievement. :D :D :D

Is this a cue for the tree-fellers' joke.

The punchline is:

We can't go for it- there's only two of us.

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

I've no doubt top dogs and underlings are all working 24/7 (some more than others) ........ That is what the PM and his Cabinet have incessantly and repetitiously told us - or at least have done once they got round to belatedly realising there was a real threat from CV-19. It would make you wonder ...

Thank you.

Great site - I wish you every success in the endeavour.

Didn't know Minard Road was named after a remote village on the shores of Loch Fyne - so learned something today.

Pandemic Lockdown in November 2020

Our PM has announced a new lockdown is essential. Many will argue it is too late and without the PM acknowledging that he and his appointed Cabinet declined to follow SAGE's solid evidence put to HMG in September. There is a harsh reality - we are confronted by a pernicious virus and we need to to t...

Track and Trace - Where is the UK Now?

It is important that the country understands the importance of track and trace. Not as a solution but as a hugely important factor in mitigating the spread of infection. An interesting summary of events is to be found here: https://members.tortoisemedia.com/2020/10/05/201005-test-and-trace-slow-news...
