Re: March against Brexit to Parliament Square - 23rd June 2018 - date for your diaries!

Thank you Tootsweep, I jolly well will! Will you be going on the march? (I know it's a long way away). If so, please do come with us, if you'd like. Either way Merry Christmas to you and yours :D

Re: March against Brexit to Parliament Square - 23rd June 2018 - date for your diaries!

Thanks so much B&BsMum, lalectrice and windmill26, really appreciate your comments. It’s not quite clear why Parsleysong is incapable of following the advice she’s been given by numerous members on this site to scroll on if she has nothing to contribute to posts, but it is rather tedious. I suppose ...

Re: March against Brexit to Parliament Square - 23rd June 2018 - date for your diaries!

Morning all. Thanks to everyone who made sensible and constructive comments, I’ll reply in order. You’re probably right AtBattersea, perhaps it doesn’t much matter who told the lies but it will be interesting to see what happens with the investigations into Leave campaign funding and Russian influen...

March against Brexit to Parliament Square - 23rd June 2018 - date for your diaries!

This is 6 months away but if you're a passionate 'remainer' then you might want to save the date. I think it's incredibly important that those who strongly believe that our children's future will be brighter with the UK as a member of the EU, actually turn up to events like this and make their voice...

Re: How to fight Brexit - Best for Britain event in Vauxhall Thursday 14th December.

I'd agree Julian, but one of the situations that contributes to is the 96% fall in nursing registrations since the vote, which is pretty scary. I wonder how many people factored in consequences like that to their voting decision? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/12/number-eu-nurses-coming-uk-...

How to fight Brexit - Best for Britain event in Vauxhall Thursday 14th December.

I am not the only person who, in the light of the Electoral Commission's investigation into potential election fraud by the Leave campaign, revelations about Russian influence through social media and finance and the source of the dark DUP money, is seriously questioning the legitimacy of the EU ref...

Protest at Dukes Head Putney this evening against Brexit - please come!

Specifically I think it's to protest that the government STILL hasn't published the Brexit impact studies, which I think is pretty disgraceful. The electorate and MPs, need to know what they say in case it meaningfully affects public opinion or might influence how MPs would vote on amendments to the...

Re: Save £200+ switching to bulb renewable energy and get £100 free too!

I think's it's the last day of the £100 referral offer today so get your skates on if you want to take advantage (though I think it simply reverts to £50 afterwards). I rate Martin Lewis' financial advice highly and get his very useful money saving expert newsletter each week, which often has some g...

Re: A very happy conclusion to the issue of excessive ‘settling in’ periods for reception year children.

I’ll tell you what is a great shame sw1234, is that so often, posts on this forum get hijacked by people with little that’s positive or constructive to contribute (and it’s often the same negative people time and again). It’s not about me going ‘on a crusade against those who disagree with me’ in th...

Faircatch fish box closes for orders this weekend at 10pm - Sign up for delicious, sustainable, great value seafood

We've had some fantastic seafood recently - turbot, monkfish, squid, mackerel, scallops, lemon sole, gurnard, octopus - lots of things you simply won't find in the supermarket.

Re: A very happy conclusion to the issue of excessive ‘settling in’ periods for reception year children.

Fair enough.
When you've endured as much abuse as I have on this forum, simply for having fought for an improved solution for the school entry system for working families, it's difficult not to get a bit riled sometimes (and lash out a bit, yes). I'm only human and not going to apologise for that :D

Re: A very happy conclusion to the issue of excessive ‘settling in’ periods for reception year children.

Thanks very much for your comment flowermummy, indeed, well done the school. Just to clarify though, I am not referring to anyone’s opinions as ‘crap’, people are of course entitled to their opinions (though it’s helpful in a debate to have some sort of evidence-based reasoning for said opinions).

Re: A very happy conclusion to the issue of excessive ‘settling in’ periods for reception year children.

Hello Petal. It seems you haven’t quite been paying attention to the facts in this post, so let me help you with that. your words - My question is how you can insist that children who wish to have the full settling in won't be affected by those who reduce theirs. This is asked with the assumptions t...

Thank you so much kfk101 and freshairmum, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your kind comments. I think you are both absolutely right with your respective points. I was delighted by the response of the school, they listened to parents, decided their system could be improved, and made it happen,...
