I've only just seen this from 2016. We've had years since then to all be educated that Proportional Representation does no such thing - and actually proportionally puts power into the hands of the people. Where do you stand now ?

Phew πŸ˜₯. Busy morning, meetings in & then back to KX & fast walk to Euston for last off-peak north to see my mum in Liverpool. Really bad backache means I'm on foot not cycling, even though it's more painful (can't lift ) πŸ™

What are these for? They blend in and are clearly a hazard for anyone with a visual impairment

Breaking all the rules for accessible public spaces - grey on grey, no contrasting patches, at adult shin height & worse for children (& ugly). No consideration of anyone walking let alone people. Wonder what might say!

All drivers working for the council & subcontractors need to go through a responsible driving course. I'm sure can help...

Trying to listen to discussion about Brighton on to London with intermittent reception. Good to hear positive intro about but expecting frothing at the mouth from the usual bone headed types... I'm sure will cope!

NB photo shows no parking restrictions (yellow lines) so wld be hard for anyone apart from to enforce. But I'm sure they used to be there so one thing is to check what's happened to them.

Aaarggh. This isn't parking, it's technically loading (well, waiting to unload) in contravention of *planning* agreement. Its a *systemic* problem which intermittent enforcement (which I completely support) is not going to solve. Or you could station a CEO there *every* morning!

Unusually, I'll have to disagree with you. Available data shows correlation between car use & income (rail travel too), as I was saying yesterday . Obviously there are exceptions, but in general charging more for parking does affect better off people more.
