Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

That is the opinion expressed in the Archdiocese’s statement. I'm being ultra cautious about quoting, because of previous events. As Lewisham also only got the final version a couple of hours ago, I expect it will be uploaded on the planning database in a few days time. I hope everyone reads them, ...

Re: Masks

Syd, what is new about that study's findings please? What date was it published? It's been known for ages that typical blue masks will keep out the virus to about 60% as do double layer home-made cotton masks, that inhaling fewer droplets usually leads to milder symptoms, and that being in contact ...

Re: Does Lewisham Council take it constituents support for granted?

Labour have 54 out of 54 seats on Lewisham council, and got 60% of the vote in 2018: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Lewisham_London_Borough_Council_election (i.e. it's unlikely they feel the need to bung money to certain areas to get more voters!) People who move into new builds or regenerated ...

Re: Masks

Yes Robin Orton, it does seem odd that a recorded message would not implore or remind people to wear their masks over nose and mouth for the duration of their journey on a bus where distancing is impossible at times. At one time and generally, we were told not to touch masks once in place or risk t...

Re: Rubbish on sydenham high st

Hi all, I recently moved to sydenham and am enjoying the area generally! One minor bugbear of mine is that there constantly seems to be a lot of bags of rubbish on sydenham high street I dont seem to notice this in crystal palace or forest hill. Anyone know why this is? Thanks Matt Hi Matt, its nor...

Re: Does Lewisham Council take it constituents support for granted?

I totally agree but i dont thinks its overlooked i think its a deliberate act to use our council tax to smarten up the areas where new voters move into to ensure they keep voting labour. ‪ This is an interesting comment; where are these areas in your view?

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

They must be held to account and I applaud Julia for trying to do this.
Me too!!

My jaw dropped when I first saw the monstrosity, If i was the council representative Id be embarrassed and be the first person in the queue to get this resolved.

Re: Anti mask culture

Well this is worrying considering how few people wear masks in Sydenham People who refuse to follow rules on wearing facemasks are more likely to have malevolent sociopathic traits, a study suggests. Individuals who showed signs of the so-called dark-triad of personality traits — narcissism, Machiav...

Re: Anti mask culture

Thanks for the BMJ table JGD. This will clarify the risk of working in an office for 8 hours a day. Hopefully this is the end of 9-5 and those empty office can be converted into affordable housing.

I never thought I’d leave but It’s dangerous here 66% of people who died of covid were disabled. Where'd you hear that? I’m not surprised this isn’t common knowledge, it’s from the ONS and I could find any info on the bbc site. Its a national scandal. Here is the source info from the ONS , see tabl...

Anti mask culture

Hi, I’ve been on lockdown since March as I’m in a high risk category and I had to go out today, it seems like wearing a mask is a controversial act. WTF is happening, have the idiots won?

Re: Masks

Unless you are wearing a special medical grade mask, then masks and face coverings do not offer any significant protection to the wearer. They DO significantly reduce the risk that you transmit the virus to others, and thus help break the chain of infection. Maybe, maybe not. But given that there a...

Re: Masks

Hi all, it’s great to know that people are taking mask wearing seriously as 123 people died in England yesterday. The rest of the uk had no deaths so it’s clear something is seriously wrong here. I am still in lockdown nothing this govt has done has given me confidence to change my behaviour.
