  • Subsidence? Insurance companies can make the council liable for it because if the trees are so big the roots will be up against adjacent buildings. So beheading them is some form of mitigation and gets them off the hook?
  • Total PC nonsense in my view. Surely it depends how you use the word gypsy and that's a valid word to use. We have been using that word for hundreds of years. Very few people use the word Roma or Romany in everyday conversation. Probably some people…
  • And if he does need access to your land to build said wall, a condition of you allowing access is that he builds the wall in a way you are happy with. I.e back to original height, suitable materials. This is obviously based on no knowledge of the re…
  • I would probably write to the builder and owner of the building and ask that the scaffolding is removed in 24 hours or you will remove it yourself. If it was me I would be very tempted to say that I would be prepared to grant a short term licence t…
  • @Ali thanks for this. Len sorted it out.
  • Rabbit burger?
  • That's good news.
  • Nobody is doubting that cleaning air and driving slower is a good idea. The tax thing was what pissed off the French mostly because those who need the car the most are the ones with the least money. I think most of the people relying on old cars ar…
  • It's a little bit Emmual Macron if you ask me. The people it will affect the most are those low income workers on the periphery that drive in and out of those areas near the north circular. I'm surprised there is no carrot as well as stick in the fo…
  • 14 years is the maximum sentence for handling stolen goods.
  • When I was at school a complete nutcase teacher (Jock the Cock) gave me a detention for walking past a littered can of Coca Cola and not picking it up. It wasn't even on school grounds but a couple of streets away. This was my mistake to try to tell…
  • Just been let down by Express Car Service which I booked for a Heathrow pick up. Had to wait over 35 minutes at arrivals for the driver to show up. The annoying thing is that with a pickup they already have taken your money if you book via a card. A…
  • I expect they were not peeling very well.
  • Probably on their way to a pyjama party.
  • Probably the council can say the IS-J is there to denote a pay bay located within the IS-J zone. The point is it's not relevant to someone parking there as you need to pay. Some jobsworth at the local council is spending all his time working out how…
  • There is a 5 digit location number on the sign which is how the warden confirms you have paid for the correct spot. The IS-J is the residents permit zone which seems to be on a sign which is not for resident permit holders.
  • *why does it not say No Permit Holders.
  • The first challenge is a informal one and councils refuse 99% of those regardless. Even when it's been a clear and obvious mistake by the council my appeals have been refused. Once that is done you move on to a formal challenge and at this stage som…
  • If option 2 won then there would be a third referendum?
  • Was in park this morning thinking the same thing. Rubbish all over the place. I was also looking at some of the verges, bushes, flower beds etc. They are in a terrible state. Very low standard of maintainance, gardening, waste collection etc. Not a…
  • Thanks for that feedback. I asked them for a quote but stuck for other ideas and want to get another quote.
  • I had to pick.up my wife and child from Gatwick on Saturday and thought I would try the train. I was very confused as there were no direct trains from FP on the websites but no.explanatuon why. I didn't want to risk it so I drove to Gatwick and back…
  • I bet there is a very nice relationship somewhere between event promoters and someone in the council. Lot of money to be made. All Haringey need to do is shove some of it back into the park and it would probably face a lot less resistance. For ex…
  • Come to think of you must suddenly now be able to smell plastic also?
  • You trust the EU to do a better job on human rights than the UK? Not all human rights comes from EU law and in any event EU law will be replicated when the UK leaves but the UK can change it if it so wishes. The European Convention on Human Rights (…
  • She must be very cold in this weather.
  • Are they burning garden waste as they don't want to pay for its removal?
  • Have you asked them nicely not to do it? Explaining clearly and calmly why it is affecting your life?
  • If the EU tactic is to effectively subvert democracy by playing a game which results in an unhappy situation where the UK is forced to stay for longer I think that may back fire. Surely people can see through that tactic. The whole idea of ignoring …
  • Fair enough but surely that would not be as easy as a yes or no ballot paper. Voting no to a proposed deal is either staying in the EU or leaving with no deal? So there are 3 options? I look forward to that!
