Re: Lewisham Local Plan

Is there any evidence of people’s view being taken on board from previous consultations? I get the sense these consultations are a bit of a smokescreen and to give people the impression they are involved in decisions that affect their local area. Looking at the comments there are a lot of improve p...

Re: Concerning Chris Beach

Reflecting on your point - I have no idea what was in my mind when I chose to post on this thread.

An unconscious link back to the .life post you had made?

Or just a brain block?

Must do better.

Re: Concerning Chris Beach

Robin - watched the Webinar last night. Hugely informative and a number of local GP's engaged, describing their experience so far with the vaccine rollout and what their expectations are for the short term. One GP described her account of being a recipient whilst accompanying her father for his vacc...

Re: Concerning Chris Beach

If I could risk an ad hominem remark, I have in the past tried, with increasing difficulty, tried to give Chris the benefit of the doubt, but his latest post has pushed me over the edge. He is, I suggest, a malicious pest. He should, imho, be invited to retire to rural Kent and not come back. This ...

Re: Spam posts on this forum

What happened to the phase where we have the more traditional anti-anything on-street protests culminating in rioting and looting. The recuperative period for broken heads and bones often leads to a more reflective outcome - a purgative effect, if you will, that can be much more pronounced. Now loo...

Re: how to get out of this mess

Shocking figures emerging today (Wednesday) about the acceleration of spread of the virus in South East London. From a figures of a few weeks ago where it was reported that approx 1 in 900 people were infected, we went to bed last night being told 1 in 50 is now the ratio. Unfortunately since last n...

Re: thank god i have left the uk

Hit him hard over the head with a metal bar and commanding hard-a-port would be judged right and ethical. But there are too many big coppers with pointy things between us and Boris. And steering the ship of state while others cry mutiny is difficult. I have only become aware recently, Titanic steer...

Re: thank god i have left the uk

We should just keep reminding Boris that he had almost everyone on his side back in March/April. No PM in living memory had such good approval ratings. Made all the more amazing so shortly after the country had been riven down the middle over Brexit. Easily lost and very hard to recover. But necess...

Re: thank god i have left the uk

IMHO we all have to support the government in what it does right (even if it is too little too late) and back the professionals into getting the facts clear to them and to us when its wrong. The most important thing is trust. Our views are not so different. Trust however is earned. Based on efficac...

Re: thank god i have left the uk

Perhaps that is the point. The dysfunctional Johnson, our putative UK PM, has isolated London to the extent that the populace of the rest of the UK, and I do NOT just mean Scotland, is in full realisation that he has purposefully cut-out the rest of the nation from his thinking and cannot see beyond...

Re: New homes for Sydenham Hill Estate?

The objectors can spend their own money on this if they like. But it's a bit rich that the rest of us will be left paying the bill for the council's legal fees racked up by this claim. Good observation. Have the protestors and potential litigants expressed any view as to what levels of density of b...
