[SE1 Discussion] Re: Buffer zone to stop anti abortion protests

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 18:55:34 +0000

So how does one find out whether one has been chosen?

[quote Ivanhoe]IIRC the actual quote is that god CHOSE those who believe, not KNEW?
One of Pauls letters, isn't it?

Often used by the sects of Christianity who assert that salvation is limited exclusively to a subset of chosen people.

Anyway, arguing that something is true because the bible says so is faith not logic.[/quote] Yes God does choose. Jacob have I loved. But Esau have I hated.. Predestination.

Top quality arguments right here! Ironic. How on earth can you shout nonsense then expect someone to respect your views on what you think the Bible says?

Personally, I wasn't sure on my stance here and did not say anything, but I think I will be fully supporting these buffer zones. I also think they should be listed as extremists with potential risks to public safety if they have to be pushed back when the buffer zones come in.

[quote Karen I]Paramount, your childish comment makes you sound like one of Abort67; that's exactly what they said to me during one of their protests. You don't seriously think an embryo can think do you? Anyway, I for one am very pleased that this group of people will be told to back off; they are a nasty, hypocritical bunch of people who champion the rights of an embryo but argue against the rights of a thinking individual. Yes, abortion is a difficult subject. Imagine if you had to make a decision between taking a pregnancy to full stage or give birth to an incurably sick, disabled child, or to continue with the pregnancy for a child you just can't afford. I am grateful that condoms, the pill and the coil worked for me and I never had to make such a difficult decision, but glad that if they hadn't worked, I would not have had to have a child. Having said that, people must be allowed to have an opinion. It is whether they [b]judge[/b] that is more important.[/quote] This is a NONSENSE!!! The Bible says God has known us BEFORE the foundation of the world and before being formed in our Mothers wombs! Get it???

You can organise meetings yourself as a resident, don't wait for the MP!

[SE1 Discussion] BBC Documentary

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:11:22 +0000

Hello all,

Hope you don't mind me posting this on here - I work at the BBC and we are looking for people in the SE1 area to take part in a documentary we are producing about London's fatbergs. At this early stage I'd love to speak with people living in the SE1 area and see if they'd be up for taking part so please see flyer below and get in contact. Thanks!

BBC Studios Science Unit is making a documentary exploring the hidden monsters clogging up our sewers – fatbergs! These structures, made of fat, wet wipes and other waste, clog up sewers and cause havoc in our water systems.

We need you! We are looking for people to come to our studio and see exactly what’s happening down their drains.

Filming will take place in late December and early January. For more details please contact simon.lee01@bbc.co.uk or 07734 978805

Best wishes

Simon

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Did you ever have any negative experiences with Airbnb?

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 01:22:28 +0000

Thank you for clarifying your question, Tommy_A.

I have never used Airbnb, be it as a guest or as a host.

However the business model used by this global hospitality service has an effect on neighbourhoods and communities who aren't necessarily involved in hiring out, or letting their dwellings.

Re-purposing regular homes into hotels/BnB's, has resulted in a diminishing community cohesion in certain areas and even turned some places into a kind of 'Earls Court' (a district known more for its transient residents that those who call it their home).

In London, there is a 90 day per annum limit on the amount of time any home can be used for the short lets Airbnb is known for, and most local authorities' leases on ex council homes forbid such lettings outright (though this lease clause is routinely flaunted and poorly enforced by the various boroughs).

If the focus of your research extends to the impact on communities, I fully endorse it.

If instead it is limited to issues between those who have used Airbnb properties for a short stay and their landlords, then I do not.

Keep trying to get the company there. We had the same problems and pushed to meet the heating company and from that they agreed to sort out some technical issues which then stoped further problems. Just keep trying to arrange to get them there.

[SE1 Discussion] Continued Issues with Communal Heating and Hot Water

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 18:59:39 +0000

Every week we get electronic calls stating our heating and hot water will be switched off due to emergency issues and this has been going on for years. Even now in this freezing winter. At the meeting the engineers to the company involved never showed up to answer residents questions. We are paying for a poor service that is going off every week and at times for several hours. Is anyone else having issues with communal heating???. Its so unfair on residents to be expected to sit and freeze. Just being told by council to go by an electric heater then. I mean people cant have baths or showers or do their washing when they keep switching it off every other day, even when its switched back on it still takes a few hours to heat up again. but they are still happy to take our service charges money for it all though of which we pay on top of our rent. I have previously spoken to an MP but nothing is every done. A neighbour told me this has been going on for years.

Genuine apologies if I caused offence.

If I'd have been the OP, and had read my response, I'd have laughed at myself and had a "D'oh!" moment, but point taken that we all interpret things differently.

I would be happy for it even if my home was affected. It's not all about oneself; new stations need to be built and there will be an impact, positive and negative, for local residents.

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Did you ever have any negative experiences with Airbnb?

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 03:39:42 +0000

Hi LiviaDrusilla,

Very good point! I should probably have clarified that in my initial post. The main focus of the research is the way conflict is created and managed in the relationships between different groups of people involved in the "Airbnb experience". There are several academic papers (since 2015) that have looked into the "positive" aspects of Airbnb and the factors that influence guest/host satisfaction with Airbnb, but currently there is very limited research on what happens if things don't "work out", and how these situations can be managed. This is the research gap that the current research contributes to.

Hope the above makes sense?

Kind Regards,
Tommy

Loving the fact that TfL are now looking at this proposal and considering how many homes would need to be demolished to make it happen.

I bet some are not so keen on the idea now!

Shame about the Post Office, but not surprising at all about McColls; their selection and produce was awful and there are much better options locally.
