Re: Concerning Chris Beach

You appear to be as confused as I am. I cannot now remember if I was banned on .life's SE23, SE26 and SE6 for 1m years, 1k years or whether the bans were commuted to 10 years. Looking today on SE26, ForestHull lists himself as admin and casts Chris Beach and JMLF in moderator roles. Never been sure ...

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

The Sydenham Society position was undoubtedly wise in planning terms; we were advised to demonstrate that we aren't adamant about demolition, and appreciated the disruption to the pupils' education, even though it's absolutely justified, and the only way of delivering the approved design. As I lay ...

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

Our attempts to suggest adaptions have been used by the Archdiocese to claim we are asking for things not in the approved design. Durr. That's because you built a different building. JGD, the person doing all the talking for the Archdiocese on the M&C webcast is actually Dr Simon Hughes, the Di...

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

I find it a worry, personally, that council members are unaware of the £6.1m endowment, and that officers of C&YP are so determined to keep it secret that even high level members aren't being told. Yes, public money, approved by mayor and cabinet, but the conditions unknown, and signed off by o...

I cannot believe that you are offended by my criticising the council. I am not offended. If you view my observation about you ascribing negativity to both the Council and the School as only being critical of your actions and not the real point that was in the post, perhaps others may see your stanc...

On 22 March, 2017, the Mayor & Cabinet approved a “Land Transfer to The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark for nil consideration for the duration of the lifetime of the school on that site.” This was the land on which the new classroom block was built, the old playground on the corner of F...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Maybe the area is being subject to particular attention. It may be a little like TV licencing - it is easy to see where a car once had up-to-date road fund licence - and now it doesn't - so let us compile a list of such vehicles in similar locations and go see if they are still on the road. And clam...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

Long gone are the days of tax discs. You would need to do an online check using the index number. Additional benefit would be not only would it confirm whether the vehicles are taxed - but whether MoT's are up-to-date. Some smart phone apps will report on the status of vehicle insurance - but not su...

I did put up Parker1970's commentary by way of half an advanced warning that it was worth the double!

I have another tree-feller joke - but I won't tell it now.

I'll save it for later.

Re: 1.15 AM: tree felling or "boy" racers?

Ok Robin

Mick and Pat have emigrated to Canada and are looking for work.

They are out in the backwoods and stroll past a sign that says "Tree-fellers Wanted".

Mick turns to Pat and says:

"There's a great pity.

We can't go for it - there's only two of us "

Is this a cue for the tree-fellers' joke.

The punchline is:

We can't go for it- there's only two of us.
