Re: Seriously, where can we talk about politics?

I don't think I know any 'freemen', although funnily enough, I was googling the Freemen of Oxford today, and then getting into an ill tempered exchange with my Dad's local councillor. I'd been out with a group of volunteers picking litter in a large open space which formally is the responsibility of...

Seriously, where can we talk about politics?

I know I'm maybe asking the impossible here, but I was struck recently to hear, literally by word of mouth, from one of the traders about 100s of school kids from St. Barts Primary protesting in Sydenham Road, as reported in the News Shopper here: Youth Strike 4 Climate: St Bartholomew's School in S...

Re: Sydenham - community activity ?

Amazing. I've been thinking how to share this with some conservative American cousins

The involvement of Ben Shapiro reminded me of this thread I started a while back

Re: Urgent warning: plant thieves in the area

This is so weird. LNHS is a perfectly respectable organisation, and does loads of good work I've suggested to the London Wildlife Trust Great North Wook project that it would be some good citizen science to encourage people to log where wild garlic (ransom) grows, because it's a marker of where ther...

Re: SilverDale Old Sorting Office

I had a couple of meetings with the owner, a couple of years ago, with a view to leasing the building from him. It all fell apart due to his odd ideas about business. He used to have Oola Boola Antiques on Kirkdale, before he sold and it was developed as Tesco Express. He just seems to be sitting o...

I think that's just marketing, like referring to Sydenham as Penge borders

I guess what the officers want is always the most modest because they're the only ones who look at the budget for any project

Re: Pedder SE London flyer

Indeed, but it's so much more socially acceptable to talk about property prices than politics

Meanwhile another agent is urging us to sign up to sell

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Lifelike - I am impressed. As I wrote, "rail planning is something I tend to leave to others, because it is so technical". I'm not sure if it was always thus, but these days we are becoming ever more aware of the problem of every Tom, Dick or Henrietta thinking they are an expert, but I risk digress...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

That doesn't sound easy to me, trying to thread turning trains round into the rail schedule without blocking up either the down or the up line at inappropriate moments. There must surely be a better option planned. In fact, it would make more sense, I'd have thought, to run a line down to New Becke...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

You wont lose the Hayes line. The tube will run on the same tracks (making the extension easier than other options), and be more frequent. I am unsure where it would be diverted? The Hayes line is already at full capacity so adding some Bakerloo trains means losing some of the current services. The...

Outdated it may be. When the newer technology fails (which it will in time) it remains a backup.
Maybe pigeon lofts would be a better alternative
