You are talking about refugees. Thats a whole different kettle of fish. Most of the migrants are economic and not from war torn countries. But if they are young and brown or black a lot or people "choose" to see them as refugees. And it doesn't answer my question. Where are they supposed to live if the people that want this type of immigration dont actually want to help with accomodation. Perhaps we should have a "voluntary" income tax so that those that want to help can?



It doesn't matter what people 'choose' to see them as - the Govt is pretty strict & most immigrants are sent back. The lad we gave a roof to, once he passed his '18th' Birthday was on the first plane back to Kabul.

If a person can prove they will be in danger if sent back, they are granted refugee status. Danger is not simply living in a war torn country.

We were asked if we'd house the lad after he was beaten up in Reading on more than one occasion. Social services thought Newbury would be better for him.

And every liberal wants open borders as long as they dont have to put immigrants up in there own homes. Talk the talk. Walk the walk.



We had an Afghan refugee stay with us for 5 months. Nice lad.

Yes, that's the sort of trouble you get into when mainstream politicians start trading misinformation and fake data. It means people with other agendas can manipulate the situation for their own ends. Happens all round. For instance Nigel Farage publicity about funding NHS condemned by the Chancellor only to be adopted 'now the time is right' as official policy!

I've just been talking to people in the UKs rust belt in the Midlands. Looking forward to a return of manufacture, foodstuffs drinks et all in the UK, rather than being tanked from Holland or France. When asked who is going to work the factories as we haven't got enough labour, there was a simple answer. The secret is in the word controlled, the door isn't simply wide open, you just have to knock.

Certainly makes you think. Why aren't the bosses twittering about Brexit starting to think of investing in the UK for once?



Personally I prefer French wine...Cote Du Walsall & Pays de Kidderminster? No thanks...

Not all traders biggest matket is the EU. The way you bang on anyone would think we export to them more than we import. Its a two way street. I dont think German car manufactuters are going to be keen on punishing us. You really are Mr project fear. Anyways we are out. No turning back. 👍☀😂🍻🍺🍸



85% of cars made in the UK go abroad. When that stops the Germans will be busy taking up the slack.

We've always had workers from overseas, even before we joined the EU. Don't think very many thought we'd not need overseasj workers when we come out. That flys in the face of past history. For instance, an MP called Powell I think, arranged for large numbers to come to help run our Health service back in the 60s.



which makes TDH's comment about immigration being the main reason people voted to leave all the more ironic.

People voted in general on a sovereignty and anti immigration ticket.



UK sovereignty was never under threat from the EU & the UK will, post Brexit, still need workers from overseas who will come here & work. Trebles all round.

I havent read a lot of posts on here but at the point Tommy Robinson was arrested, the defendants hadn't been charged. Therefore they are not rapists, groomers or anything else, they are citizens just like the rest of us. That is the very crux of the issue really, because that seperates Robinson from other journalists and sums up why he isn't just doing the same as the others.



exactly.

Thats where it started last time

Though I do think that as far right now seems to mean control of borders and anti mass immigration it seems that its more middle to me. But the parameters of what is far right seem to have changed. A lot.



Ancient news. Austria has been voting in the far right for decades.

I see this week's Newbury Weekly news had more junk to burden West Berkshire's recycling services; pages of garbage on what children want for Christmas...and this is news because?

What a complete waste of time. If I buy a newspaper, I expect it to print news, not whimsical tut.

GET IT RIGHT NWN.

You must be aware that local newspapers are closing in their droves. With the publication of this sort of material, I'm not surprised.



The bit you are referring to was a self contained section which you could easily have removed without affecting the rest of the paper.


I suspect that this free, addition to the NWN resulted in more copies being sold.

Bah Humbug.

What happens if no one is willing to buy it and run it as a pub, even with a substantial reduction in price? If we are really honest, selling a few beers even with half a dozen dinners 7 days a week isn't going to be that profitable, even if you exclude the cost of the property.



Two options

- locals buy it & run it as a community pub.
- apply for change of use

I suspect it for sale as the owners have retired from the pub business.

Therein lies the problem - worth £430k as a pub, much more as a private house.

Still - The Castle at Donnington has re-opened.



As it is offered at 'only' £430K I suspect that it can only be a pub.

Those nice people from the Red House at Marsh Benham behind the Castle revival IIRC.

It has been shut for a lot longer than that. Still, it is up for sale, as a pub. £430,000 guide price.

I have been doing exactly that for the last few years, attending both my local pub and the pub in the village where I used to live once a week in each case. However, I would imagine that this is probably more of a regular attendance than most people will manage and also that even this is probably not enough to keep a pub in business.



I would imaging it has more to do with the value of the building, or the land upon which it sits ( which can be considerable when you add in the car park & beer garden ), as a site of housing than the 'viability' of the pub business itself.

Pubcos are sat on a huge landbank, much of it in very desirable locations.
