Dave.. I work in a local pub, I own a local business covering a completely different set of people, I do a school run also a different set of people, I walk the dog in the local park, again another set of people and I also spent most of my life here so know lots of Marple people on top of all that lot.
I sit slightly but ever so slightly off the fence towards the no campaign on this one so dont argue the toss ( ie i dont frighten people off talking about it!) but I do tend to ask people s opinion.. the majority are against this proposal. on top of THAT this forum also suggests it in its polls as does the FB posts. So thats where i get my reasoning for that
In fact the only thing I find worth reacting against at the moment is the rhetoric and grandstanding that seems prevalent on here and at meetings.
got to agree with this! I think ALOT of people do it for exactly that reason. Its the reason i keep well away from MIA! Maybe someone should take note of this.. you are alienating people who might normally support you!!!!
I'm quite disappointed that you didn't mean your apology Miss Marple because it certainly warranted one. I consider you the voice of MIA and it doesn't matter how much you say you are not whilst the rest of them hide behind a website and a personally anonymous newsletter and a help line number you will continue to be.
At the same time... you lot are being a bit pedantic... its incorrect use of words as stated in my previous post its an enthusiastic bunch of people believing they are doing the right thing... give them some slack to put it right.. but at the same time MIA non-representatives stop fighting it, you' re getting to sound like politicians who also NEVER accept they make mistakes!
