Such a shame, another piece of historic British engineering goes to the great scrappy in the sky.

No plans to scrap them yet, but currently many are in storage awaiting their fate.
Some have gone to Scotrail and some are being retained by GWR for work in the West Country on local services.

I would imagine that few, if any, on here are interested, but just in case there are.

A piece of rail history on Friday night as the very last HST to call at Newbury departed at 21:48 for Plymouth.

42 years of what I would classify as excellent service from a BRITISH built train!!

That's right.
There's no such thing a free energy.
There's always an environmental cost in addition to a financial one, and usually both.

Referendums aren't elections though. They are just opinion polls. So whilst our government said they would enact the result, they were under no legal obligation to.
That's the difference.

So a pointless wast of time, effort and money then?
And even more reason not to have another one?

OK was it the "peace" women's (I give in, I'll go along with it!) presence or the nuclear weapon's presence that maintained the peace?
And by that I mean peace in Europe and with Russia since the Cuban Crisis.

Does anyone proof read the NWN any more? I have just read a death announcement for a friend and there are 2 glaring mistakes in there. Not very good NWN.

It's been like that at the NWN as long as I can remember.
They got my Mum's obituary wrong and my wedding coverage.

The name of the camp(s) is a matter of record: Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp. The Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp was a camp full of people protesting about nuclear weapons. I don’t see why you are getting your petticoat in a twist? ��

Because it is a misnomer Andy.
We have peace which has been achieved so far with or without the camp.
Some may say it is because we had / have these weapons that peace, so far, remains.
We all want peace. If a camp had been set up in support of the weapons surely this could have been described as a "Peace Camp" also?
I know it is futile trying at this stage to rename a historical inaccuracy but just trying to make a point. smile.gif

P.S. PLEASE don't stoop to the level of newres and include personal silliness in your comments. Also an inaccuracy as I have given up wearing petticoats!!
Thanks. wink.gif

DJDick was brilliant yesterday. All that Daily Mail reading exploded yesterday all over his keyboard. How does anyone get that angry just because someone has a different view?

He didn't get that angry "just because you have a different view".
If you read his post....................
"With your inept social skills, inability to put forward an intelligent view rather than attack other's in a childish way, and your general predisposition to be an idiot."
He also said....
"If there are any Remainer adults here I'm perfectly happy to listen to them."

So, it appears it is your attitude and rudeness that prevents him and many others from posting their views on here for MATURE debate.

Why is it shocking, because an event that openly supports the peace women which you can see in today's NWN in the arts section, but cannot hold a milestone anniversary event that if it had failed, the face of Europe could be very different today.

Aaarrgghh!!
Not "peace women".
Protesters yes.

Stop calling it the bloody "Peace Camp"! angry.gif
Surely we ALL want peace, it's just that there are varied views on how we achieve it?
Some may say that the presence of Greenham Airfield and the later cruise missile helped to maintain that peace?
"Protest Camp" would be a more suitable nomer.

The reality is that the population expansion is unsustainable and therefore a mass extinction is the only practical outcome. We don't own the planet, even though we like to think we do, it "tolerates" our existence but will have no qualms about wiping us out if it means saving itself. Maybe in a thousand years or maybe next week but it is going to happen.

Correct!
And Sharia Law, Brexit, or any other trivia we care to make up, will have little effect smile.gif

I am afraid Sir Will is correct. Our ability to increase life expectancy and limit global conflicts combined with a massive increase in global living standards across the world has resulted in a population explosion. In effect we are victims of our own success. Mother nature will intervene and this may happen through climate change. I am afraid Newres composting and splitting his rubbish into 7 different bins just ain't gonna make a jot of difference.

Yep. Too many people and growing.
Cause of most of the World's problems.
It's inevitable that Nature will / must intervene.
