I think, whether you agree with them or not, you have to credit MIA of bringing the issue to the attention of may Marple residents who wouldn't have been aware of it otherwise.

I agree entirely Steptoe about the public awareness, I think that they've done a great job there. I just wish they'd keep out of the other aspects of the issue, which they obviously know nothing about and also that they would stop pretending that they are informed as they know little more than the rest of us and also that they have any influence with anybody that counts as they obviously don't.

Agreed.  But it's unfortunate that bringing it to people's attention has gone hand in hand, at times, with giving them false information.

Jeez, so you get a house given for nowt and free heating. We wonder why nobody bothers working anymore!

As with many of your comments, this shows astounding ignorance, prejudice and an unpleasant disposition. Putting you straight would be easy but you may learn something if you did a little research of your own.

And just what would that false information be !  No information posted by myself or indeed any other MIA member is false.  The swimming baths and the roundabout was brought to MIA attention by staff who had attended a meeting at the college Fact not Fiction.   So now Dave my old mucker ! list what's false and I will provide where that information came from.  Please stop just putting wild remarks on just to point score, you are becoming boring !

"Posted" being the operative word. What people have been told on Market St to encourage them to sign the petition is entirely another matter.

It should not be news to you, Miss M, as I have related this experience at least once before.  I was sheltering from a shower under the MIA gazebo (thanks, MIA  ;D), and overheard a clipboard-wielding MIA person (male) telling two shocked people that the college's plans for Hibbert Lane were just a 'smokescreen' (his exact word) for the real plan, which was to move out of Marple altogether! That was the false information which I was referring to.

Insulting language removed by Howard. Please keep it civil, Miss M.

Dave / Finetime do you really fail to understand that YOU TWO only know what you know because of MIA and MIA only know what they know because they have spoken to 3 ex governors (stood down in protest of proposals ) Ms Cassidy, Mr Hubert,  Chair of the corporation, ASDA ! Yes ASDA . Chief Executive of YPLA, Dorothy Smith Head of YPLA North West , Staff who were present at the original meeting in May / June 2011 with Tesco and the college consultants.  
So my friends  :-\ my question to you two is who have you spoken too to be so adamant that what MIA report is untrue.  Do you both realise how your posts sound to people like myself, who have actually taken time to seek out information.   The information is out there and you would both do well to seek it out and then, and only then can we enter into an informed debate ! I think you both need a reality check.

Just out of interest - not an argument! - what's the 'A' in MIA for? Is it Action against a supermarket or Allowing a level-headed analysis  ::)

Allowing a level  - headed analysis with insight into the presenting issue

So let's get this straight Miss M; is MIA still alleging that the college's real intention is to move out of Marple entirely?

Finetime I would have thought the question should be, what have you exactly to report.  Surely both yourself and Dave have by now made some enquiries and spoken to some people in a way to seek out fact from the fiction you are both convinced exists.   If I was active in a forum debate I would make it my Business to have some insight and knowledge around  the subject I was contributing too.  Famous saying " you can talk the talk but fail to walk the walk". This I feel sums up this situation perfectly

MIA has  never said that it is the college 's intention to move out of Marple, I am not sure who the chap was on the stall but he was not speaking on behalf of MIA   Did you challenge his remarks  ???

Sorry Miss M, but I'm afraid he was.  He was manning your stall.  He was carrying an MIA clipboard with your petition on it, and asking passers by to sign it.  He was speaking for MIA.  End of story.
