Re: New boy medical examination

I did not go to boarding school, but had my testicles examined by a GP when I was a teenager. Some boys "balls don't drop" properly, and is a legitimate medical issue. It has nothing to do with boarding schools. OP- your response highlights you are being a little precious and agree with some of the ...

Re: Female dogs on heat - please don't walk them on the Common!

This thread proves to me that dog owners live on another planet. The fact that some people defend the OP and call us ignorant means they don't get our point. If you can't keep your dog on a lead, they should not be on the Common. Regardless of their menstrual cycle (!) Why are my taxes paying for a ...

Re: Female dogs on heat - please don't walk them on the Common!

My jaw dropped when I read this post. I don't have any pets and actually feel that dog owners are ruining Wandsworth Common. The dogs are scaring the wildlife (ducks in the pond or squirrels in the trees etc), scaring young children ("he's a friendly dog..."), dog poo and little poo bags not in bins...

Re: Belleville expansion plans

Three last posts are rather suspicious. Never posted on NVN before and all posting a consistent message.... Mmmmm. Let me give you another thought. Wix were underperforming. So, effectively bad management. Belleville Primary is rated Outstanding and in the Top 200 primary schools in the UK (per Sund...

Re: In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer.

You do realise you come across as rather intolerant of people who have different views to you? Last time I checked, we live in a democracy which allows you to have an opinion and to exercise your right to vote. What’s worse, you are linking unrelated xenophobic views of random people to your in laws...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

Is your post about Brexit or Marsha de Cordova? Many Conservative members are against Brexit (Justine Greening- next door MP) and in favour of a second referendum (led by Dominic Grieve). So being Labour or Conservative is a mute point as you have Remainer and Brexiteers in both parties. However, if...

Re: Guess what Northcote House Nursery has done this time to make themselves ever more miserable...

@workingmumbtc and @petal What nasty and unconstructive posts. And to make matters worse, you lobby these insults behind anonymous user ids. The recipients of your comments do not have the same luxury of anonymity as you do.... speaking of “cowards”. I am a parent at the nursery, so happy to give a ...

Re: Not happy families at the Bolingbroke on Northcote

Ppe- are you angry at Bollingbroke for not making their policy terms more clearer, or for not making an exception for your supposed well behaved 14 year old? Surely, it would have been easier to raise this issue with the pub the next day, once you had calmed down? But instead, you opted to publicly ...

Re: Mother attacked for Rolex as her children run screaming for help

Bathtub- are you for real?

You are victim blaming and also looking to blame the Tories.

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a Labour Party mayor, who is in charge of policing.

But he also has the same attitude as you... blame everyone else.

This is a serious issue, and doesn't need silly comments.

Re: Licensing Objection on Battersea Rise - Please help us and object to the Council!

Uhm
This is a mind dump of information and got bored reading.
I lost you after the umpteenth non existent paragraph.

Some useful advise... try be concise to get your message across.

Btw. Humble Grape is one of my favourite restaurants!

Re: 20 Mph Speed Trap in Nappy Valley Side Street - With Ulterior Motive???

Agreed with the theme to this post. What's the point of spending money implementing a 20mph limit but (1). Fail to enforce it or (2). Enforce it incorrectly. I am happy to point the council to my street, where the 20mph is never complied with and used as a shortcut to avoid Battersea Rise. It is wor...

Re: Wandsworth residents can now enjoy free phone calls and mega-fast wi-fi from new network of multi-media hubs

These structures are disguised "advertising billboards". They are awful and unfortunately a few have gone up on Northcote Rd. There was little to no consultation with the local community despite a significant number of objections in the planning stages. I have never seen anyone use them. They are an...

Re: Bolingbroke Academy

Good post Livegreen. It would be nice if people would contribute based on OP request (first hand knowledge. Not a "friend" or "neighbour" said...) I don't have any children there. But my own first hand experience is limited to what I see of the Bollingbroke pupils outside of the school. OP- I sugges...

Re: Bolingbroke Academy

Some of the comments on this thread are out of order (looking at you Muncher12). I have a feeling a lot of the critics are not even parents but are "ideologically" against: 1. Strict discipline environment and/ or 2. Academies in general (i.e. Not under the control of the local council) If you are a...

Re: Locals' restaurant offer at Macellaio RC Northcote Rd

Dudette- using your logic, butchers should hide their meat display as well. What about mannequins displaying latest fashion? Should these be removed as well as not everyone is skinny and some people find it offensive? What about Odd Bins or independent wine merchants? Should they hide their displays...
