  1. You could ask the Local Authority to consider the complainant (assuming all complaints are from the same person and only the LA would know that) as vexatious. The LA could then legitimately ignore further complaints about barking without worrying that the complainant might lodge a complaint that the barking complaint was ignored.
  2. That’s the problem. The scroats with illegal guns are sometimes difficult to find but us law abiding types....they know where we are and can ignore guidance as they see fit to make it increasingly more difficult for us.
  3. I am minded to do this, ie not pay, but what happens next time? Does the practice keep a record of my not paying and simply refuse to comply with any future request. That would mean having to find another GP and in rural areas they are thin on the ground!
  4. And it’s just helped me out too, 6 years later! Cannot fault PW 👍
  5. And last but not least......snap caps.
  6. I was on my way home from a stalking trip, with a couple of hours to go I pulled into a garage for a coffee. Dressed in stalking suitable clothing with my rifle bolt in a leather holder on my belt. Inside the garage shop were some 8 to 10 police officers having a break, coffee and sandwiches etc. I walked over to the Costa machine and while the coffee was being made one of the policemen walked over and asked whether I had a knife on my belt, the top of the holder being covered by my flapping shirt. I said no and that it was a rifle bolt, explaining where I had been and what I had been doing. That’s ok he said, had it been a knife I would have had to ask more questions but he and his colleagues were comfortable about the rifle in the car.
  7. If only politicians were as clear in their thinking as this.
  8. This constituency would always be between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrat’s. I spoke with a guy from the Brexit Party at a stall in my local town asking him why they were standing, didn’t he feel that any one voting for them would reduce the Conservative vote. I also mentioned that some ‘remain’ parties had decided not to field a candidate to focus the remain vote as the by election seemed to be about remaining or leaving. He thought his party could win and that by doing so would show Parliament that people were fed up with the status quo. It didn’t seem to matter that the party wanting to overturn the referendum result might succeed.

    The bigger concern, in my opinion, is that these people seem to know who is licensed.
  11. The reply from my MP: Thank you for your email, it was good of you to get in touch. This whole situation regarding the revocation of these General Licences has been appalling. I have been in three meetings so far about this issue, and as Chair of the DEFRA backbench committee I have had a private meeting the Secretary of State, Michael Gove to discuss the issue and its potential ramifications in Wales. The Welsh Assembly have been watching closely the developments in England, and I hope that the Welsh Government won’t be in a position where there is gap between a new system of licenses and the old. Even a gap of a few days would be problematic for farmers at this time of year. I will continue to keep abreast of the situation and I will be meeting with colleagues next week to help work out a way forward. Kind regards, Chris Davies MP
