Re: thank god i have left the uk

We should just keep reminding Boris that he had almost everyone on his side back in March/April. No PM in living memory had such good approval ratings. Made all the more amazing so shortly after the country had been riven down the middle over Brexit. Easily lost and very hard to recover. But necess...

Re: thank god i have left the uk

IMHO we all have to support the government in what it does right (even if it is too little too late) and back the professionals into getting the facts clear to them and to us when its wrong. The most important thing is trust. Our views are not so different. Trust however is earned. Based on efficac...

Re: thank god i have left the uk

Perhaps that is the point. The dysfunctional Johnson, our putative UK PM, has isolated London to the extent that the populace of the rest of the UK, and I do NOT just mean Scotland, is in full realisation that he has purposefully cut-out the rest of the nation from his thinking and cannot see beyond...

Re: Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all - hope 2021 brings some joy to each and everyone of us. Wishing you all the best from your neighbours in Bellingham Ward.

Re: New homes for Sydenham Hill Estate?

The objectors can spend their own money on this if they like. But it's a bit rich that the rest of us will be left paying the bill for the council's legal fees racked up by this claim. Good observation. Have the protestors and potential litigants expressed any view as to what levels of density of b...

Re: The Run-in to Christmas 2020

Re: Ella Kissi-Debrah - A Very Sad Death & a Welcome Reversal

The BBC today reports on the findings of a new inquest, re-instated by The High Court, and granted after Ella's mother said more evidence had come to light. A nine-year-old girl who died following an asthma attack has become the first person in the UK to have air pollution listed as a cause of death...

Openngs After Lockdown #2

We made our first outing post Lockdown #2 last night. Visited The Dolphin. The food offering has been expanded - just a little - and both pizzas served up were excellent. Good to see the staff - happy and resilient as ever - and still operating one of the safest pandemic regimes in the area. Interes...

Re: The Bridge

It shows that Bellingham ward has already been neglected long term, and its outdated infrastructure has not been upgraded.
