Would anybody like this domain in exchange for a donation to a local charity?

Re: Older Persons’ Freedom Pass, 60+ Oyster photo card before 9:00am

What Boris giveth, Boris can take away. I refer to the over-60 pass to the (mostly) still working. I'm uncomfortable that their commuting is subsidised - particularly as they are likely to be at the top of their profession - whilst younger commuters probably less well paid have to pay. That is a dif...

Re: The 8pm NHS celebration

People from the NHS have told me how very much they appreciate this. It's now been more than a month of hell for them. Hardened paramedics have been reduced to tears. Football fans will know the value of a home crowd willing their team on. It's an honour for me to be part of keeping up the spirits o...

What has this got to do with Sydenham?
Wouldn't it save us all? Sydenham is a 5G free zone on my network (Three). So that's a relief just like being declared by Lewisham a 'nuclear free zone' in the 1980s worked. 'Cos we weren't blown up then were we?

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

We are in a terrible crisis. A crisis that is bringing Sydenham together as I've never seen it before. Last night, at our end of Lawrie Park Gardens, the 8pm clapping and banging was louder than ever. Good people are doing good things. Not me, I'm only a grateful recipient nowadays. Can we celebrate...

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,...

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: 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...

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...

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...

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...
