Realising the the guest presenters don’t have the kudos of Andrew. Wishing him a thorough recovery and a retun to our tv screen in due course.
I read tonight that City of Westminster officials are up in arms over the lack of any progress to date on the spoil heap otherwise known as Chelsea Barracks. Aside from being used to store barricades during the 2012 games, there is no sign of anything happening on yhis site.
Aside from being a visual nightmare, there is no positive value to this site remaining undeveloped.
Perhaps the close to 1bn expenditure on the site to date and the property market having collapsed has something to do with this.
Yet another promised set of social housing is not going to eventuate in the near, or far, future……
Please someone, remind me, are we in the 21st century? Does a London council need to be told what a Bank Holiday is in relation to parking restrictions?
This absurd non-joined up parking system which can result in one side of a road having one set of rules and the other side, a totally conflicting and differing set, has to end.
Mr Mayor, please take hold of this and do the following:
Create a uniform set of rules across ALL London boroughs
Set an Inner and Outer London Resident Parking Permit Fee
Permit short stay in other resident zones (say an hour) if you are in possession of a current resident permit
Create a uniformity to fines
Bring parking enforcement back under the auspices of the Met Police, making use of PCSO’s and TOCU to enforce rules and regulations
Once central query/information point across all London boroughs to deal with bay restrictions/suspensions, working in conjunction with TfL Streets
A full audit of roadside restriction signs and curbside markings, so that all restrictions are clear and legal, repainting and replacing signs as and where required
This is the start… I am sure that there are many other ideas which you can all contribute which would make this a good idea!
David Cameron Backs Down From Gay Marriage Promise To ‘Appease Tory Backbenchers’ is the headline on Huffington Post.
What can I say except the draw the logical assumption that Cameron has traded his spine in for a slightly used one extracted from a jelly fish, should this headline be true!
As they say, watch this space as more will follow…
Is it possible that the almost combined political will of Europe is leading us down the austerity path has failed?
The French electorate have kicked Sarkozy out. The local council elections in the UK clearly gave Cameron and Clegg a black eye.
Can the coalition survive until 2015?
Will Clegg still be the party leader by Christmas 2012?
There is a rising wave of dislike for the austerity measures that have been introduced in countries across Europe. We have already seen the Dutch government fall over a budget crisis in recent days. The Greek elections are taking place today and no one can even start to predict the outcome of these.
Just a thought, but could we have our own European Spring???? In twitter terms #justwondering
