Perhaps if enough people vote Yes then one might be added.

I've ticked don't care (what difference does it make), it is hardly busy on here. I think this is yet again a case of person/people being spiteful.

Who is being spiteful? And why?

What are local politics? Aren't they most of what we discuss here? Is this simply because someone has some radical alternatives? Interesting - particularly when looking back at past threads there has been some call for local politicians to join in! I have to admit, I don't like the idea of separating poltics from life - frankly that's what most of life is about; unless you are a hermit or reside on a desert island. The alternative is professional politicians, agreed the way we seem to be heading, but how sad. We've often call what happens here a debate; in reality much is simply arguing or bickering - simply hiving off 'politics' won't help! I also have a sneaking suspicion that more than one active member here is a 'local politician' but takes care to keep party affiliation secret. Makes for a better and far more balanced debate when they don't. So my vote was no.

My vote is no.
Firstly, local 'politics' should not be on party lines - it should be purely about running the local infrastructure. There will be Central Government impositions to be met regardless of governing Party(parties), but the local management would better serve the population if they just operated the services.
Second, who are the local politicians who want to use such a facility. I'm not aware of any.

But then User23 complains about everybody. I bet if you went to WBC you would be able to spot him straight away, crouched behind his desk trying to look inconspicuous. Probably hiding behind a copy of Trainspotters monthly.

Assuming the professional background of someone is something I'd rather not do if they would rather not disclose.

I quite agree there Iommi. However those that go back a while on the other Newbury Website & particularly the previous one will already remember several poster's names / occupation's were made public ohmy.gif . For instance i know who GMR is, i'm sure he won't mind me telling. He's the one who sits outside Tesco's during the summer wearing his shorts & eating a picnic, am i correct GMR. cool.gif

As a subscriber to "Railway Magazine" I find that offensive!

Perhaps you meant "Football Yobs Monthly"?

I am glad you said 'summer'.... if you said winter people might have thought I was mad (I know... that would be stretching the imagination to a ridiculous point... but in the wrong eyes I could be perceived as mad).

PS I also wear my shorts in the winter (and no references to madness please).

That would be daft; at least with 'football yobs monthly' you would get some life out of them. Can you say the same about the readership of 'Railway Magazine'?

Almost all posts on the forum (both categories) are local politics - and were long before Richard Garvie came along.
