Re: Back to school?

Luvnyrick- I think the difficulty is the government has to come up with a general plan that works for the population on the whole and can’t cater for every individual case and relies on individuals to apply common sense. To me, as a general rule ensuring those that are deemed more at risk are self i...

Re: Back to school?

I also think it is a slightly risky strategy but there is always a bigger picture. They need to balance getting people back to work and the economy running and one of the big obstacles is child care. On the other hand they have to avoid a second spike. Also who knows when a vaccine will be ready and...

Re: School fees for next term

Mummo- just referring to your comments about the private sectors being well positioned because of their already integrated virtual learning platforms - I just wanted to say that Bolingbroke Academy have done an amazing job at continuing with the curriculum. It has been almost seemless and the kids a...

Re: School fees for next term

I think you have to let market forces play out. If you can’t afford it (or think it’s too expensive) you have to be prepared to walk away. At that point the school has to decide if it wants to cut it price to keep you or keep the price the same and assume it will lose your child and replace them wit...

Supporting local businesses

Just saw a couple of the threads (QT toys and Fruit and Veg delivery) and also walked past Tamara saying they are now doing deliveries. Obviously it’s going to be a super hard time for independent businesses and I am not sure they can wait for government support. I thought it would be good to have a...

I know the people who are behind it and also a couple of the instructors. They have put an awful lot of time and effort into getting it off the ground so I hope i...

Re: Local group set up for tactical voting and vote swapping to achieve a second referendum - Remainers please read!

London did not vote to remain last week. It was a general election. It voted for Labour. The referendum was in 2016.

Re: Student work or Stay at Home Mum Ad hoc

I reckon it’s closer to a days work. It’s quite a big area to walk logging those details along the way.

Re: More peopled voted for parties supporting a 2nd referendum, than voted for parties in favour of Brexit.
