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...

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

It seems that everyone is pretty much in agreement here, just lump it! I think that is really the only reasonable response. If you think about it, just over half the people who voted in the referendum wanted to leave - are you really going to ask everyone you meet what they voted for, and then refus...

Re: How to escalate a complaint against the Council? Councillors? Money claim? (overcharged for parking permit)

I think it is a deliberate ploy, they seem to do the same thing with general complaints - ignore them long enough and they go away.

Re: Wandsworth Council breaks Legal Agreement to help developers make even more tax exempt profits

I'm not sure they are corrupt, I don't think they have the brains to work that out. The main problem with WBC is a complete lack of competency. The planning deal that really does me in is that we apparently contributed £250 million to the costs of the Northern Line extension to Battersea Power Stati...

Re: How to escalate a complaint against the Council? Councillors? Money claim? (overcharged for parking permit)

Just sue them through money claims online. Don't feel bad about it, they wouldn't hesitate to sue you. The alternative is to complain to the Local Government Ombudsman. The reality is that Wandsworth Council has cut staffing to the bone, to the extent that they more-or-less lack the competency to do...

Re: Rights for "common law wife"

I'm pretty sure that there's no longer a concept of illegitimacy, all children are legitimate heirs.

Re: Rights for "common law wife"

If you have any property in joint names (ie a flat/house) then the presumption is that this is owned in equal proportions, unless there is some other agreement.

The posters are up all over London, I saw one close to the Limehouse Link on Sunday.

Even David Davis has been forced to admit that the benefits of Brexit have vanished.

I thought it was a watershed moment when he switched from "You will all have exactly the same benefits…" to "That was just an aspiration".

Numbskull.

Re: People’s Vote March Saturday 20th October - please come along and make this huge! Brexit can still be stopped

I think TAP makes a good point, the great inequality in the country. For a large section of the community the EU is just some abstract concept that they cannot engage with, and thus do not appreciate. They vote against free movement, essentially, because they think their livelihoods are threatened -...

Re: London elections: Could Conservative-run Wandsworth become a Labour council?

What a snide remark! You must have a different concept to "snide" than I. One way or another, if you can afford to live in a £million+ house then you have more money than me. That's not snide, that's just a fact. While your workings are great, the real test you missed was how you managed to predict...

Re: London elections: Could Conservative-run Wandsworth become a Labour council?

I also agree that Labour needs to see votes for them as a protest vote but the trouble is they just don't, because it doesn't suit them to. They think it's an endorsement of their beloved JC, which couldn't be further from the truth. I think they are a bit confused, which is a problem. But at least...

Re: Petition to inprove road safety outside Chestnut Grove School...

In general councils are removing railings as part of the shared spaces plan - gives car users a sense of peril and makes them slow down! Utter nonsense! It just ends up with more pedestrians in the road and cars on pavements. We've been doing this experiment in London now for about eight years, I'd...
