Re: Au pair walking around virtually naked

I would definitely give her the benefit of the doubt! She is young, immature and naive. This is most probably the first time away from home and you could kind of take it as a compliment she's feeling at home. She's being naive in the sense that she is placing herself as a child at home as not as an ...

Re: Retired MIL doesn't help and overstays her welcome.

Assuming she’s well and able I would say something like “now you are here it’s great we will get some help with the children”. To make the penny drop that you’d like her support and not just added load. Sometime people underestimate the drain of having to host a person even if family. Or right out a...

Re: Are Miele machines worth the extra??

Yes !! LOVE my Miele appliances, I’ve got everything from Miele. They not only last, but when something does break they can always be efficiently be fixed by Miele engineers. We’ve only had to fix the washing machine and that was almost 10 years after buying it and we had extended warranty. The oven...

Re: Food waste collections for all in Wandsworth

As long as we don’t end up like Lambeth with an ugly collection of different bins.

I wonder how big it is.

Re: New 20mph zone on the A205?

This post is quite depressing. Julien is perfectly entitled to be frustrated at the new speed limit and to express this without petty finger pointing passive aggressive replies and lectures and statistics about speed. ( and I totally agree with him ) Discussing is good of course, but it’s the attitu...

Re: Sins of the parents carrying through?

Quite simply, it would be a no from me . She’s not even a good friend to you which could have made it more awkward. Your child is young enough to be able to step in and control the situation. Given they are heading to secondary soon it’s especially important to stay the hell away. The poor girls is ...

Re: New 20mph zone on the A205?

The common is well served with safe access points all over. The safety of pedestrians is not compromised, totally irrelevant when discussing a main road as in this example. Or do you let your children play along the very edge of the extension ?, For example, take avenue along from Broomwood road to ...

Re: New 20mph zone on the A205?

Julien, Yes it’s annoying and whilst 20mph is reasonable in residential street , it’s actually a nuisance on main roads! 20mph means people brake more as hard to flow in traffic which causes more pollution! Also, more particles are let out at lower speed apparently . The argument of London average s...

Re: Who else feels outraged about what councils have done to Wandsworth Bridge Rd and Streatham  High Rd

Agree Roangel! On the topic of traffic fines being used as cash cows , I’ve been wondering what will happens when the new 20mph zones are introduced on the A3 Clapham Common extension etc Will they be able to fine motorists on the 20mph roads using existing cameras ? As Wandsworth famously tried and...

Re: Who else feels outraged about what councils have done to Wandsworth Bridge Rd and Streatham  High Rd

Oh chorister don’t be such a bore and do pay attention yourself. I fully recall the trajedy of the commons and why it failed. However, I did think it was not a great example, if you pay attention in your older years ;) When it comes to driving cars and the costs entailed then it’s not free in that s...

Re: Who else feels outraged about what councils have done to Wandsworth Bridge Rd and Streatham  High Rd

@Chorister, I don’t need to research the tragedy of the commons as I studied it at university and well aware. It’s not quite applicable here as the tragedy of the commons concept is when a resource is free and not owned by one person. We pay for our Road use by taxes and the fines for any minor offe...
