Re: Growing Up in Wartime Battersea

There's a bit missing from this. My father was born in Weatherby in Yorkshire - despite all out family being from Battersea. This is because my grandmother was evacuated to Yorkshire. Probably plenty of children from the area were evacuated themselves.

Re: Husband's financial deceit means son now can't go to private school

It's not really clear to me what you are angry about. Is it that your husband has gone out and spent the money? Or is it that you've just discovered that you aren't as rich as you thought you were, and you blame your husband for not informing you of this at his earliest opportunity? As others have n...

Re: Brexit - but this is definitely worth watching.

The first problem is that this speech is by the leader of AfD, the right-wing German nationalist party. What are they going to say, that the EU is a good thing!? Seems unlikely, and that runs right through her speech. The second thing is this idea that we can have a single market without regulation ...

Re: Co-Working near Clapham Junction?

There's a new shared space opened on Battersea Park Road, on the south side close to the junction of Latchmere Road. Sorry, can't recall what it is called.

Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

Today both the Chancellor and the Brexit Secretary said they would strike off both the ‘no deal’ and ‘revoke’ options off the ‘indicative’ list. I think my money is safe ;) Somehow I don't think two votes will have the final say on it!? I also seem to recall that one of the previous Brexit secretar...

From the BBC - Article 50: Can the UK revoke Brexit? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47668466 The BBC is not really a reliable source, is it? If you want to quote from something here is the original from the CJEU: http://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/document.jsf?docid=208636&mode=req&pageI...

Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

How could anyone have a bet with you, every time you post you move your position? You've now moved from whether the commons could vote to revoke art 50 to whether that vote would be binding. On that basis it is arguable whether the 2016 referendum is binding, since there was no form of Brexit on the...

You just moved from "without a referendum" to "without a referendum or general election". Hardly firm ground to stand on.

Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

Absolutely can happen – might be a debate about whether it will happen. We know there is a parliamentary majority against no deal, it follows from that there must also be a majority for a further extension, or revocation of art 50, if there is not a deal that can gain a majority. It may take some ti...

Actually, Angela Leadsome said yesterday, that they'd have to take note if it did break 17.4 million – so perhaps there is a chance.

Re: Please sign and share this petition to revoke article 50 and remain - nearly at 1m signatures!

I'd hazard a guess that you'd need to get more than "17.4 million" signatures on this petition in order to get any substantial movement.

Re: Anyone selling a keyboard for learning piano

I don't know what your criteria are, but if you have a computer already you can just by a USB midi keyboard – probably in the range of £50-100 new. ie, if you had a Mac, you have Garage Band, all you need is a midi-USB keyboard to access all the synthesised instruments. The pianos available on Garag...

Re: Video: Wandsworth woman's car rammed in terrifying incident

The simple answer to this is that the police are underfunded and have taken their eye off the ball - in that they seem to tolerate low level criminality and drug use/dealing. This in turn emboldens and increases the number of people involved in crime, which escalates the whole problem. This has been...
