    plastic polution rant

    I was in Dortmund last week and charged €0.45 plastic deposit on a bottle of water and "street people" we're scavenging bins for bottles - presumably to get the deposit refunds.

    Phillip Green

    Out with the alleged behaviour of Phillip Green it remains the case that the U.K. has an independent Judiciary free of political inference. Three appeal court judges decided on the basis of law that there were grounds to grant an interim injunction until a full court case was heard. IMHO Lord Hain disabused the the role of Parliamentary Privilege by interfering with the judicial procedures of this case.
  3. Please keep PW uptodate and the outcome as I suspect it may not get much press coverage.

    Extended Hedge Trimmer.

    I have a two stroke (pre mix) Mytox with long pole hedge trimmer (plus strimmer, brush cutter, chain saw). A good product and although well balanced it did get very tiring on a long hedge some +8ft high. I solved the problem by having the hedge reduced to 6ft. An option worthy of consideration.

    VPN providers

    Political activist? Perish the thought.....! No, I travel quite a lot outside the UK and as a TV license payer get extremely annoyed that I cannot access UK TV when I want to and, although not hyper sensitive about my privacy, I am getting increasingly irritated that organisations are monitoring what I do. Thank you one and all for your contributions.

    Gordon Brown Fears Another Economic Meltdown

    Not a particular fan of Gordon except for the fact that he designed the five economic tests to be met before we joined the EMU and adopted the Euro. We never met the tests and thereby frustrated Blairs rush to join the Euro. Brexit would probably have been impossible had we been in the Euro. Thank you Gordon.

    please take time and help

    Another idle thought.- sorry, I've been painting the garage and idle thoughts rattle around. You could write to the Council, again under the freedom of information act because I believe the act requires them to respond in a given time frame, and ask them "to state the legal status of the roadway which passes through the cemetary lodge. For example, is it a public a public right of way over which the public have unfettered right of access" no need to explain your reason for your request. In the event that they confirm it is then you have further grounds to write and challenge the proposed closure asking them to explain the legal basis of their proposal to close a public right of way as you believe it a a matter for public consultation and/or referral by you to the LGO. It may be a drip feed process. These matters invariably are. Good Luck.
