[quote Tolstoy]According to Joanna Lumley the silent majority still support it. How would she know?[/quote]

Given that the Hodge report stated that the only groups that supported the bridge were the Garden Bridge Trust, the Evening Standard, and Boris Johnson (who couldn't be bothered to turn up to give evidence), I suspect Joanna Lumley's "silen majority" are just the voices in her head.



[Property] Key/s to intake cupboard

Hi, Can someone please help and let me know who I should contact at Southwark Council for access to intake cupboard for gas/electric engineer? I am in process of having smart meter put in and the following email does NOT work southhousing@southwark.gov.co.uk

Any advice is appreciated.

As soon as the paint is dry, I think we should remember this brave little cone with a simple wreath, untill we can persuade the council to honour it with a blue plaque. It may be too soon, but are there any young cones in the area that have the passion and commitment to carry on?



[SE1 Discussion] Bermondsey street

Hi guys

Does anyone know what has happened this evening on Bermondsey street. There were 3 police cars and a car with sniffer dogs. A group of young people were being questioned outside the restaurant at around 9:55pm, I'm not sure if they were in the restaurant or just passing.

MIne keeps going out and I live in Kennington side but my dish points south easterly so don't see how the building would obstruct it.

Where did the Union Street southbound bus stop go?
It was chaos yesterday.
Just rung TFL and they said it shouldn't be missing.

Sorry but the rights and comfort of the rich are more important to Southwark Council than people who actually live here.



[SE1 Discussion] The Cone has gone.

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 09:33:51 +0100

The traffic cone which, for the last 30+ years, has sat on top of the railings at the corner of St George's Road and Lambeth Road, by the underground depot, has finally been removed, as they're painting the railings.

I know I will not be alone in feeling a deep sense of personal loss. Should we have a vigil or something?

RIP Coney McConeface.

Hi all,

sorry I couldn't make it to the chat on [b]Operation Shylock[/b]. I thoroughly enjoyed the book (mischievous and superbly witty I thought) but there was just too much work to catch up on after my trip for me to be able to join you all. How did it go? Did you like it?

As for the book for June, my vote goes to [b]Me Cheeta - the autobiography[/b] as well.
See you in May.

Theo Usherwood of LBC concluded his report with this

The idea of the Garden Bridge sleeps with the shopping trolleys, wellington boots and other detritus at the bottom of the River Thames.

Glad to hear it, James - they are very worthy charities that have much better things to spend their money on!

... and if I were a trustee of one of the various charitable trusts that have put money into it so far (eg Monument Trust (Sainsbury family) £20 million; Sackler Trust £1 million; Garfield Weston Foundation £2 million)) I might be asking awkward questions. Will they get their money back, or has it gone the same way as the public funding?

While not yet throwing our sweaty nightcaps in the air, two points -

1. Congratulations to Sadiq Khan for a courageous decision.

2. Margaret Hodge's scathing report is on the record and will hopefully be a dissuading factor for anyone asked to step with guarantees now.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Garden Bridge

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 12:09:00 +0100

Yes, I realised after reading it we probably shouldn't get too excited just yet.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Garden Bridge

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:49:11 +0100

It's not quite dead yet.

The funding guarantee that Sadiq has declined to give could in theory be provided by another body or company.

That would seem improbable - but then lots of things about the project are highly improbable ...



[SE1 Discussion] New tall buildings at E&C knocking out TV/Satellite reception

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:05:25 +0100

Hi all
Having a bit of a strange issue, wondering if anyone else in the area has experienced. l live on the Kennington side of E&C, and noticed a strange issue with my Sky TV reception in the last couple of months.

Whole bands of channels become unavailable (no signal notice) or reception is really garbled.

I had Sky out twice and each time they were able to make a tweak that kept things working for a little while until the last visit this week. The engineer claims that the new building around St Mary's Churchyard/Newington Butts is after directly interrupting the beam of the satellite, and nothing can be done other than erecting a tall pole for the satellite dish on top of the house!

Anyone else experienced this?

I have looked for a relevant outlet to lodge a complain but have come up with nothing so far, any ideas appreciated.

Cheers,

Paul



[Property] Re: Permission for alterations to a leasehold property frustrations!

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 10:38:05 +0100

They told me that we first need to submit quotes from the builders that will do the work and a team from the Council will visit the property both prior and after the works have been completed to check all has been done in line with the consent. They told me it would just take a month to get consent... Well now I have to find builders and can't afford to do all at the same time, so I will have to reapply for consent every time I want work done. Consent is only valid 1 year by the way... Seems like a money machine for the council.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Garden Bridge

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 10:34:07 +0100

HOORAY!!! With his recent comments saying that he supported the bridge, I thought Mr Khan wouldn't pull the plug. So glad that he has. Shame about the public money already wasted, but so good that we're not going to waste any more on this crazy idea.
