And hear the sound......of silence!!
I would conclude , as others have on here, that the answer is "no"!
Good luck anyway! rolleyes.gif


It's the same as whoever is supposed to deal with the Digital Edition just lately, is it that difficult to press a button !!

Incidentally, I prefer silence when I'm driving on my own and rarely have the radio on.


That's one of the best things I enjoy when on my Motorbike, no distractions therefor total concentration on what I'm doing. cool.gif

Only socialist dogma requires a commercial venture to subsidise public housing.

People who strive to improve themselves normally aspire to own their own home;
if previously in public/ social housing I'm sure they don't want a new development peppered with
lower cost social housing.
There can also be frictions shall we say, between those who care for their dwellings and
those who don't.
(You can guess which category are in the latter, not all by any means).
And why Sovereign Hsg ***'s has an Anti Social behaviour Dept

Well, you have a dual carriageway speed restricted at 70mph but, as we well know, most travel faster than that.


I think keeping to the speed limit is mainly ignored by most drivers on most roads these days. A lot drive up & down the Link more near 70 than 50, the manic idiot that continues to hurtle round the Ecchinswell lanes etc. Where there are no ASCs the chances of getting caught with the lack of Patrol Police is minimal whatever road you are on I'm afraid.

It's really about time there was a complete overhaul of the Car Driving Test. Look at the stages one has to go through to ride a Motorcycle nowadays for instance. Apart from the introduction of the Theory Exam the Car Test has remained basically the same for years. How about having a period of time in a limited power vehicle for example. Also at the moment you can pass the test driving round Newbury for an hour or so then you can go straight out onto the Motorway with no further instruction !! I personally think it's about time it was incorporated into the test.

When you consider the amount of fuel burned by each vehicle travelling down to the Swan Roundabout and back up the hill again the environmental impact will be significant.


Before long those that live just the other side of the Swan roundabout will have to burn a darn site more fuel by having to travel to Basingstoke or Andover !!

It will be fudged and fiddled so the vote becomes IN
The whole voting process is a farce


No, don't give up for goodness sake, do we have to take notice of all these so called experts. Would you really expect to be waiting to see a doctor or on the waiting list for an opp. etc. alongside any of them, when was the last time Richard Branson lived in this country for instance. And as for the so called celeb's, Izzard, 'give us your effin money' Geldolf, & now I see an ex footballer who lives in a £32 million pad !!!!!!! Get real, none of them live in the real world anymore, every time I see names like these telling me what to do it makes me dig my heels in even more.

You don't need to look at monarchy through the prism of dialectical materialism to see that kingship is patently absurd, and if there was any defence of a ceremonial hereditary monarchy in a modern western democracy you should be able to find it without resorting to ill-considered ad hominem.

Yes, as I concede here, food security is a problem, but then I've also been deprived of my allotment by a tyrant state, and whereas previously I produced the majority of my family's food myself, I am now dependent on supermarkets.


As one who also enjoys growing their own veg, there surely must be someone in the area who has a patch of garden you could use in exchange for a bit of the produce Simon, an elderly person for instance who now finds it difficult to manage would be grateful for someone as keen as you !

New parking is just driving people to other towns or the out limits of town.


Well it looks like Basingstoke has the right idea. I quote from the 'Basingstoke & Deane Today Paper'
:- 'To help support a thriving town centre, the half hour free parking in short stay council run car parks in Basingstoke is planned to increase to an hour. The move follows feedback that the half hour parking the council introduced was to much of a rush for people wanting to just nip into town to sort something out or make a quick purchase'.
Now, doesn't that make sense !!
