Re: Observer Building

As I recall, all the Observer Building plans, public forums and consultations were gone through previously - atleast two years ago? With much fuss and publicity. To no effect whatsoever. The public's wishes were largely not taken notice of and the building sat there for another long period, degenera...

Re: small job plumber

Bingo Richard! The plumber is named Peter (he has others who help him, possibly sons) and his number is: 07889644626.

My friend (had a bit of flu, hence the delay) again said the man did an excellent job - I hope you will find that to be reliable.

Re: Reshuffle

Others would know more about the dynamics which operate within the closeness of government leadership. But from outside it does seem a brutal and rather bizarre decision by Boris - surely Sajid Javid was seen to have done a reasonably competent job as Chancellor and to be a calm and intelligent oper...

Re: small job plumber

Sorry, Richard, I haven't forgotten about this. My friend is quite reliable but not good at replying quickly to text messages!

If you are in a hurry, I will speed the process up, otherwise I should be able to get hold of the phone number in a day or two.

Re: Labour leadership race

That's just it! Funnily enough, the Tories used the same excuse prior to the 1997 election - "we are not getting our message through to the electorate", until the cataclysm of their defeat by Blair finally forced them to face the fact that the electorate really did not like what they had t...

Re: Labour leadership race

The Labour leadership contest is painful for the party to go through and painful for others to watch at a distance. A bit like watching an old friend, who always was a bit eccentric, slowly going off his head, doing crazy things, hurting himself, talking a lot of nonsense. He doesn't hurt anyone els...

Re: small job plumber

I had exactly the same problem once. I knew the theory of repairing it, but it is quite tricky and fiddly - atleast one plumber didn't do a perfect job and it had to be touched-up by someone else!

I could have learned how to do it maybe but the investment of time wasn't worth it.

Re: small job plumber

Hi Richard, I have a friend (probably seeing him in the Weatherspoon pub tomorrow night) who is/was a metal worker, toolmaker, carpenter etc. , so quite fussy about a job being done properly. He knows a plumber whom he swears by, thinks he is really good. Let me know if you want the phone number. S/H

Re: Celebrity gender issues

I am not the slightest bit interested in the private lives of pop singers or celebrities (regularly splashed all over magazines and newspapers) and who their latest partner is - how does it affect me? Nor am I interested in the sexual orientations of those people - very much their own business. Many...

Re: New Food and Drink section?

I was hoping for some support from you, Richard - do you think my ideas are valid or are they a load of rubbish?! I certainly wouldn't take any gentile older lady into the Wetherspoon pub - good for some cheap, basic food and a cheap pint, but often dirty and poorly managed, often very rowdy. Someon...
