Apparently they are working on restoring power..

Re: Time to close this site?

It seems to go up and down depending on whether people have anything to moan about / share. Bridge building with Hersham Hub would certainly help, but i doubt it would happen. I'm not sure new sections would make much of a difference. The General section is for anything non-walton, and it's fairly c...

Re: Exit Brexit

But, it could, and most certainly would, be argued that such a move would be acting against the referendum, and thus undemocratic. Only if the argument was poorly constructed. We have this absolutely unrealistic approach in politics that learning or changing your mind is an impossible thing and som...

Re: Exit Brexit

I would appreciate it If we could try to take a deep breath and be constructive though. For example John, what aspect of the Cabinet has been proven corrupt in your view? i know there are links being investigated between donors to Leave.eu and the Conservative party, that Hunt has a number of dodgy ...

Re: Exit Brexit

Can we argue nicely please? This is a contentious topic, but let's please try to fight using coherent arguments and without getting personal - otherwise we are in the realms of the Monty Python argument sketch. For my part, I don't think a second referendum is undemocratic - a referendum is literall...

Re: Exit Brexit

i was in the second referendum camp, but I actually think it would be better if the Government just grew a pair and put out a statement along the lines of: "You voted to leave the European Union. It seemed like a good idea. Many of us felt that we could achieve a better situation for our country. We...

If anyone is minded to encourage our MP to crack on and drop Brexit, these guys have put together a helpful site:

Re: Raab fights on

His latest trick seems to be to pose for photos at the local food bank, apparently devoid of any embarrassment that it's his party that has created the demand for food banks in the first place.

You couldn't make it up.

Re: Hotel above M&S

Yep. The undeground remains for M&S. The outside spaces will be for the hotel.
You do indeed get free parking at the Heart for 2 hours if you spend a tenner at Sainsbury's.

The high street will continue to decline as we all just get stuff sent to our homes instead,

Re: Advice on Newlands Close, Hersham - ex council house for sale

I hope you don't mind me reaching out but there is an ex-council property for sale in Newlands Close, Hersham, that I am interested in. Welcome to the forum Cara (nice to have someone new who isn't a Bot). Can I object to you "reaching out" on the basis that we are not in America, and I can't see y...

Re: Walton Housing Market

or could it be (and this is a long shot I know) that the UK Government attempting to destabilise the whole country via Brexit is making a lot of people cautious about making big investments?

Re: Trains taking the Strain

Plus, signal failures on our line are frequent. There is clearly a need for new signalling equipment rather than endless bodged repairs.

Re: Licence to Bike

not sure I agree with you John that most drivers look. Passengers can also be an issue (particularly those in black cabs). That said, any sensible cyclist will give cars parked a wide berth to avoid being doored. My reading of the article is not that the Dutch reach will be "law" but that it will be...
