Re: Take away fried chicken shop on the high street

Well said JGD. The vaccine will be administered to several billion people. It only has to be a tiny bit wrong to kill rather more than Covid-19 worst expectation. So it's essential the testing isn't shortcut even under the greatest understanable pressure. That can be a two year wait for most people,...

Re: Free video of Alice in Wonderland in Mayow Park presented by Spontaneous Productions

Thanks Jonathan. A memorable event last summer - a different world within a different world. It will bring fond memories back to my grandkids. You are one of Sydenham's great assets.

Hello, I tried to place an order. My addition seems different than the website.
I presume you are refering to the OP. Sydenham Mutual Aid used phone/email which worked very well. I was mortified that the wonderful lady carried it all by hand. Best not to over order!

Re: Home deliveries

A nice volunteer from Sydenham Mutual Aid delivered our Fresh 'n' Fruity order to us this morning. And a big shout and thanks from us to the lovely lady who delivered this morning. It would be great if initiatives like this metamorphised when it's over into community groups to supersede those that ...

Re: Planetary Disaster Averted - Ozone Layer Healing

That seems to contradict your suggestion. Not really. If a virus were to wipe out humankind - or just civilisation as we know it - then the planet's environment would be saved, no eco warriors or Montreal Protocols required. That's the logic of the Gaia thesis - is it not? I suppose that's OK if yo...

And a great reminder of the Icelandic Volcano event - beautiful silent skies. Apart from the apparent increase in birdsong volume.

Re: Corvid 19 reality check from an A&E Dr

As for Sunak he missed an opportunity to support the self employed who will not self isolate. He will also have blood on his hands I disagree. If half of what he promised last week is delivered by March 31st it will be a miracle. The 80/20 rule is there and Sunak explicitly said he was going to fol...

Re: Corvid 19 reality check from an A&E Dr

Right now we are still exactly on the same track as Italy. Exactly 2 weeks behind them - as we have always been. Italy went for total enforced shutdown today. If we also did that today we would hope to do better than Italy. Otherwise the longer we wait - the worse it gets. It's all there in the pape...

Given that any prospective purchaser's first move is Rightmove/Zoopla etc - not driving round looking for a sign - their original purpose has gone. They are now merely adverts for the agent.

Re: Mural?

Yes. The presumption must be that the artist knows best. The only person to have a veto is the person paying for it. If it is to go in a public place then the question is not whether we like it - but is it unacceptable to the majority passing it. That's a high but not impossible bar for rejection. Y...

HMG employed people who believe in eugenics . It’s not a gamble it’s a strategy But the people who reversed the policy do not.

Just a reminder if you watch the daily stats here: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ We are, and always have been, just 2 weeks behind Italy whether you look at cases or deaths. There is approx 10 fold increase every 10 days. That's boggling. italy (plus France & Spain) have real enforced l...

Re: Assistance for over 70s in area

And if that's unachievable, how on earth are we supposed to believe his statement that we can give the virus the push in 12 weeks? Surely it's just fantasy? If so, there will be unnecessary deaths - and a lot of them, I imagine. Capping the increase is feasible within 12 weeks. Whether the current ...

Yes - priorities do seem to go astray. I'm irritated by the cries of anguish over the loss of exams and is assessment going to be fair? Ahem, the priority for the education system right now is to decide by tomorrow and implement by Monday who is coming to school and how they are going to be taught. ...

Thanks Dan that 's really kind. But many over 70s, like me - don't do Facebook for various reasons. (I'm OK I have kids to look after us). I would hope some of the local organisations, like local churches, come together to set up a united action group. It's important as they are in a better position...
