Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Seeking help. In the Pendle Plan I keep viewing quite massive PDF documents that have been obtained through a series of other links in quite a tortuous manner. Is there a way of showing the PDF like the URL linking system so that people can choose to open it up or not.
eg :/Index_V4.pdf

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

I have an idea Ken is laughing at you China. Think back a couple of days and see if you can recognise where you triggered me into this one. This is going well isn't it. Thanks Ken for keeping stum.... Stanley you are crediting me with a better memory than I really have. I'm keeping stum because I c...

Re: Pendle Planning & Development.

How much did this exercise cost Ken? No idea, but its a government requirement to review the plan every 5 years. All nonsense because even the most mystic crystal ball gazers have no idea about the affect of Brexit and Covid-19 on population and jobs. But boxes have been ticked and the concrete set...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Another industry noted by its absence from the budget is farming. I listened to Sunak justifying his freeports by saying they would benefit the farming communities by providing employment in rural areas. Really? Pigs could fly in then out again without having to fill in all the tedious paperwork. I...

Here we go again on a different subject but all part of the plan make-up. Pendle_Housing_Needs_Assessment_Final__12.03.20_.pdf. One would think that being a final assessment it would all be straight forward and clear. Far from it. The housing needs appear to be based on two factors. The population g...

Later. see THIS report in the Independent. I never thought I would see such naked pork barrel politics in the UK but it is alive and well. Read the piece and see what you think about 40 out of 45 constituencies focussed on are Tory led and many are far from deprived. Sounds a little like our 2015 P...

Re: Seen in the News

To add another twist to the Meghan & Harry story. The rules of Succession to the British throne are quite clear. If the Queen pops her clocks then it goes to the next in line but if she steps down (abdicates) these rules don't apply and its basically up to Parliament to decide who gets the job next....

Sorry Stanley I'm on a roll. The problem with ignoring these things is that they can come back to bite you. I know we are a bit long in the tooth for some of these things to affect us but we could say that about educating children. The section I quoted from (above) has 140 + pages and then there are...

Interesting that 'most things will be back to normal' by June but furlough has been extended to September... This begs the question what normal is, If looking at last years end of June's figures the infection rate was round 600 (7 day average) and the Death rate 60 (7 day average) these numbers sto...

I suppose it depends on the pattern of the number of household deaths (and excess deaths - which look like overall they may be running below a five year average from April this year ( no flu this year it seems ), in part as the weaker elderly have been effectively thinned out early.
