  • There isn't really any room for another bin it is like the invasion of the darleks already and the idea of having millions of bins with rotting crap everywhere is not good. The idea is to force people to recycle by fully utilising the green bins (pe…

  • .......as opposed to the totalitarian nightmare of the EU......? The only way to do something about it is a campaign to change the culture. Get people to take responsibility for themselves.

  • Yes strange as it took some sort of effort to get it to the shop in the first place. Would be just as easy to find a huge bin and throw it in. If it's really of use someone will collect it for free. If Mind can sell it then so can you if you can be…

  • There is quite a bizarre culture of dumping stuff near recycling bins and not in the bins happens near vehicle entrance to Finsbury Park. The junk dumped outside the Mind shop is also weird as it's not resaleable and the poor staff have to clear it …

  • It's quite bad depending on who lives in your building and therefore what rubbish they create. So we have 4 flats and 2x black bins. So one flat has a penchant for takeaways and two flats have children with nappies. Every summer we have maggots cra…

  • Maybe my language lacks finesse, all I'm saying is there is shit outside someone's house so I'm not sure how you can do anything about that but speak to the occupants inside but seems you did that. I think it has something to do with frustrated peo…

  • I would say knock on your neighbours door and ask them wtf they think they are doing having that crap sat outside their house. Or do what I do and just walk in there and stuff it into the bins. People need to look after themselves better that's a di…

  • The picture above looks like a case of bin men not emptying a bin as they can see something in it or its overflowing because their employer Veiola has strict rules about that. Ultimately it's a council issue as they entered into a contract with the…

  • Bought our flat in Stroud Green 4 yrs ago.
  • Fact checking? Well over a decade and everyone who voted labour (joking). But on the subject of disabled passes you just have to trust people. Most cars are used by a family so a taxi driver can get one for his mother etc. I know someone who is s…
  • I think what some people class define as disabled is a bit of a grey area. There is a person who has her own disabled parking spot near to me. Her house is only accessible via stairs and she's always walking down the road to the shop. I'm sure sh…
  • .....sounds like the EU....
  • On that note I will keep on parking where I like for 5 mins providing it's not obstructive and running the gauntlet. I could write to the council but I don't want the upset of a stock response. I'd rather save my political time for bothering my MP a…
  • But that would mean a loss of revenue for our councils and profit for the outsourced companies so will be a political hurdle I don't know how common sense was lost so badly. Seems I may habe been within the law to stop in the loading bay. Everyone …
  • Coffee loading? Clearly was loading coffee as evidenced by my full cup.
  • They look better against their colleagues if they issue more tickets. I did park in the wrong place it was a loading bay. I didn't really understand the definition of loading so I came up with some sort of argument that coffee fell in my definition…
  • I was in the car on the phone payment system when I realised I was being ticketed. They don't actually make any noise and appear instantly using special supernatural powers. They are very sly. She must have known I was in there.
  • One of my favourite pubs as not many have such a nice quiet outside space. A lot of pubs front the street and hence are no so relaxing.

  • No need to be aggressive but if the machines are the same as what Haringey use then they can input a note to the system which gets fed back to the parking department. So then you challenge the ticket and it's backed up by the note. This is what hap…
  • @miss annie I think your going a bit over the top here, a bit unrealistic. Nobody is saying it's OK to intimidate and attack. All I'm saying is that it's inevitable that there will be a bit of frosty contact with a traffic warden. They are the fac…
  • Superdrug sell a lot of cosmetics and hair dye and that type of stuff. There is no pharmacist. So it's a bit different.

  • Don't see the fuss myself. It might be bland to some but it's a pleasant place to do some browsing. It's a triple fronted shop. Superdrug is a great addition compared to the Witherspoon. It's a very useful shop and no spoons can only help the ind…

  • But there is a sticker on the door which should repel any crack heads immediately.
  • I think my wife chucked it in the bin as the pen had no ink in it. Also we have nothing to steal.
  • Similar. Although at easter I was in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Yesterday in Tower Hamlets and saturday in Newham. I use the car about twice a month for work. And because it sits outside my house I might go to a supermarket or arena shopping park or …
  • Well if I spent all my time in London and my family lived here also I would happily ditch my car. Because I have a car I also use it for trips in Inner London. Unfortunately trains are far too expensive and unreliable (always doing maintaince on pu…
  • Some police person turned up and gave me a special pen in which to invisibly mark my nickable stuff. Pen has a unique code. Nicked stuff can be scanned to show where it originated from. It's designed to put theives off as goods are traceable. The…
  • If a traffic warden is worried about that they should get another job. Everyone in whatever situation who gets a ticket and sees the traffic warden doing it is going to challenge the warden to see if he can stop it. That's common sense and every tr…
  • Someone? You mean me? Well I think there are rules and there are rules. Certainly never attacked anyone for it, simply humerously debated the issue with a traffic warden who didn't seem to try very hard to stand his ground. Anyway, 5 mins in a loadi…
  • according to the evening standard he is opening one in Dalstoni think I read. The goss on the street is that the owner of seasons restaurant, who lives with Max, is taking the lease of the former triangle restaurant next to Londis on Ferme Park Roa…
