Bloody hell I wish I never said it now.  I still don't think the COOP will give up the TEXACO station. Because it is established, very busy and they wont want another convenience / supermarket chain to take it over??

Not that it is relevant, I too buy fuel as an when I need it. I don't waste my time driving around wasting fuel trying to find a whopping saving on fuel prices. That would be just stupid.
According to one of the assistants in the Co-op shop part of the Texaco station Co-op will remain on that site when the proposed Co-op shop on the Albert Schools site opens.

Mind you - the Co-op may well change it's mind.

The agenda for the Marple Area Committee Meeting on Wednesday 11 December has been published.

As usual doors open around 5.30pm and the meeting starts at 6pm in the Marple Senior Citizens' Hall.

Development applications include the Canal and River Trust Yard, which of course includes the Wharf Marple Project too.

If you can't get there you can watch LIVE via this link, or afterwards on catch-up:

Note that the Web Casts are now embedded in the meeting agendas.

There's a page about Marple AC that tries to explain in simple terms what they do and how you can get involved here:

http://www.marple.website/marple-area-committee.html



The page includes a map of the Marple Wards so you can see exactly where the boundaries of Marple North and Marple South and High Lane are. It also features a live feed from the Stockport Council web site at the bottom that shows links to the latest agendas issued, meetings held etc.

There is also a shortcut link to the Marple Area Committee page on the council site: www.stockport.gov.uk/mac

Virgin BB is down for maintenance again in Woodville area today. At least we had a warning letter.
24
Ironically yesterday I had my second major outage this year on my PlusNet Fibre broadband.  Major issues for many customers served by the local exchange.

No such thing as a perfect internet provider.  But it's how the staff deal with it that makes the difference.
25
I have to agree that the Virgin service has become a lot worse in the lest 2/3 months with more outages than in the previous 2 ish years combined and more instances of slow speeds. However still in a different league to BT where I got as many outages in a single day as I have in the 2 years since I switched
Virgin media customers who used to pay line rentall for twelve months in advance  they will no longer let you do that .

You have three options:
1) Don't vote. If you take this one then you can have no complaints about the result has you've abnegated any responsibility. In my opinion, a coward's way out.
2) Vote for the least worst option. At least you've done something.
3) Do something about it. Join a political party that represents your views. If you can't find one, set one up yourself. There's never been an easier time in history to use instantaneous communications media that can reach billions of people in one go, as long as what you've got to say resonates with them.

Option 2 is the one most people go far. It's what I will do. When faced with candidates from three left wing parties, even the least worst option is pretty bad.

Option 3, form your own party or stand as an independent is certainly an option I'll consider.

Option 1 actually sounds like an option I might have to go for in the future if the three main parties drift even further leftward (if that's possible).

OK Melancholy, here’s an example of a EU law - it came into force last January.  https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/IP_18_6853

This law has had the effect of preventing (or at least hampering) tax avoidance by international companies and the extremely wealthy people who own them.  Some of those people own newspapers, which why the Mail, Express, Times, Telegraph etc have been indoctrinating us all with relentless anti-EU propaganda for the past three years and more.

If we leave the EU this law will no longer apply in the U.K., and the billionaire tax dodgers will breathe again. Will that ‘make your life better?’  I don’t think so - unless you too are a billionaire tax dodger!

Such regulation should be no business at all of the EU. It should be a matter of international agreement between nations regardless of whether they are in the EU or not.  The EU is most definitely not the body who should deal with such matters, or indeed any matters at all. The EU is not only not necessary, it is positively a danger to Europe. Why so many people love the EU (and are therefore are anti-European) I don't know. Pro Europeans are the ones who are anti EU.

I believe the ability to make one's own laws by the law-making body of my own country will make my life better. We managed to do that for centuries before the EU came and we can manage after it's gone.
