Re: www.savewandsworthcommon.com

Excellent letter from BJ today - very supportive - will put it online and provide a link if I am allowed rugby: I've read the letter from Boris Johnson that you posted a link to. It says no more than the blindingly obvious (at least to most of us) and says nothing whatsoever about Trinity Fields or...

Re: Sadiq Khan breaks the rules again

Mrs Contractor Mum: When I sent an email to the address on the notice of the fundraising dinner I got a reply at 3.30 p.m. (the same day). Are you going to suggest that the person in question was on her phone on her lunch break at the time? I see that Jack Straw MP, for whom Sadiq used to work, has ...

Sadiq Khan breaks the rules again

Two and a half months ago I wrote to Sadiq Khan's office. I have yet to receive a reply in any form. From responses to previous post I made this site, it appears that Sadiq Khan's failure to do any meaningful work for constituents is something that other posters have experienced. Perhaps one of the ...

Re: www.savewandsworthcommon.com

mungomuffit: I don't see any inconsistency in what actuallyadad is saying. He'd like to get new/updated playgrounds/exercise equipment in Wandsworth parks. I agree with him - Merton's are in much better shape. That's more likely to happen in the case of temporary relocation of the Wandsworth Common ...

Re: British Girl Friday - No task too intimidating.

£20 per hour seems pretty steep. At that rate I'd likely be paying you a lot than the cost of whatever is being delivered, or more than the serviceman/woman that you are waiting for. The going rate for a cleaner is £10 per hour. For painting and decorating I have seen rates as high as £20 per hour, ...

Re: Council houses for a million quid?

Over £1m is a lot to pay for an ex-council three bedroom semi. However, what you're paying for with this house is the large (by local standards) garden. Doubtless someone will pay it. In December 2013 a study found that the SW11 6 postcode (i.e. Between the Commons) had the highest average level of ...

Re: BEWARE 'AU PAIR' MARTINA LUCA 31 YEARS OLD

I have to agree with gruffalos dad that you shouldn't really post her name atleast until the police have decided what to do I'd just like to clarify that I said that the name of the au pair should only be posted if the op was more specific about the particular issues with the au pair. The op kindly...

Re: BEWARE 'AU PAIR' MARTINA LUCA 31 YEARS OLD

You are clearly upset. However, I don't think it is proper to name someone on this site without being specific as to what the issue is. I make this post as someone who had had (good) au pairs in the past. "Neglect" is a very general term and to me doesn't say anything specific. It could involve the ...

Re: Home tuition advice? Social Communication disorder

unless you've been in my shoes and have a child with a disability you can't really relate to what I am saying Please don't use lines like this on this site. It is an attempt to be exclusionary and shut down discussion and does not reflect well on you. I do not want my daughter going to primary scho...

Re: Home tuition advice? Social Communication disorder

anootka: You have totally missed my point. Relationships between boys and girls of the age of four should be friendships. Full stop. There is no need to project boyfriend-girlfriend relationships onto them. I am troubled by the fact that you don't even seem to be able to comprehend this. You have ma...

Re: Home tuition advice? Social Communication disorder

He is now 4 and has lots of friends and even a little girlfriend, Could we not just let children be children? What is this need to attribute boyfriend-girlfriend relationships to children with ages in the single digits? Really sad about this. Let me know what school you son goes to so that we can a...

Re: Question about au pair étiquette....

When I was in high school American? The cultural thing is more about your desire to avoid confrontation. Most of your specific complaints are fair enough and I think you should speak with her about them. However, I think it should be along the lines of: - Please get dressed and don't be in your pjs...

Re: Can my daughter's friend be trusted?

A couple of thoughts: (1) What parent gives an 11 year old an expensive mobile phone? Apart from the risk of damage/loss, I'd be concerned at making them a target for a mugging. A pay-as-you-go mobile from a high street phone shop costs £20-30. I wouldn't consider that an expensive bit of kit, but I...

Re: Can my daughter's friend be trusted?

I don't really understand what the issue is with the phone. The mother of the friend phoned to say that her daughter had found it in her pocket. To be honest, I don't think I would have bothered phoning - I would have just sent my daughter into school with it to give it to your daugher. I doesn't so...
