Driving Standards

Following a trip to canterbury today, where are people buying their driving licences now that Woolworths has closed?

Has a new highway code been published that says its ok to turn right without indicating, turn left whilst indicating right, or overtake on a blind bend?

I thought the driving test was getting harder, it appears not.

The Clocks Go Back!!

According to the news today some of the resident UK population are ''Worried about the reversion to GMT."

Is it not time to get a real perspective upon life on Earth and worry about real things, not those subjects that the media think we should worry about,? (so as to enhance their viewing figures or circulation figures)

Monkton PTFA

Well , as I said, I speak for villages, rural or not, How does the Monkton School PTFA defend its stance on the changing of the name of the 'All hallows eve' celebration planned by the PTFA? I would suggest that they have denied the local children the chance of celebrating one of our traditional occasions.
Any religion would be wise to extend the arms of support to any other, on the grounds that they all support the same principle of a 'supreme being'?

A Good Man Has Gone

Roy Ford, the man who told me to get interested in Planning, has finally left for the great brewery in the sky! Roy was intense in his love of good planning (from a Local Authority perspective), and equally passionate about Local Planning committee's being non corrupt, but forward thinking. He taught me all I know about the principles behind planning, and for that I will be forever in his debt.

He also taught me how to enjoy real ale, and for that I thank him more.

More importantly he taught me that politics is not about being nice, its about winning. I will forever respect him and his memory.
