  1. Of course, TTIP is no secret. The process to read the TTIP documents is very simple and straightforward ... A 'must-read' ........... TTIP leak could spell the end of controversial trade deal, say campaigners http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/ttip-leak-could-spell-the-end-of-controversial-trade-deal-say-campaigners-a7009896.html
  2. Well said moe. I still can't believe most of the people I speak to have never even heard of TTIP. Frightening!
  3. Ah. I can't confirm that myself as I'm only passing on information from a respected member of the community. Sign or no sign though, there was no need for the gesture she got in lieu of a polite reply. Surely these workmen knew beforehand that the removal of this tree was a sensitive issue? Anyway, here's what the site looked like tonight ...
  4. BULLSHIT!!! I heard from a 100% reliable source that a lady walked over to the fence from Morrison's (staff?) and pointed out that there was a notice on the fence informing them of the petition. She was answered with a 2-fingered salute by one of the tossers cutting the trees down. Bloody disgraceful!
  5. It says 4 Palace Road on the bank's website, which is the address of Big Mama's I believe, and the Chinese next door is 5-6 Palace Road. Not that it matters much in the grand scheme of things though!
  6. I think you're right moe. That would make sense about it ending up as a takeaway.
  7. I think there has been a bit of confusion on the Martins Bank website. If you look at the page for Bedlington STATION Martins Bank then that too says 'Takeaway' at the bottom. http://www.martinsbank.co.uk/11-50-00%20Bedlington%20Station.htm
  8. On a lighter note, and not to be disrespectful but simply to lighten the mood .....
  9. I might add that such a renaming would also be a small win, a mark of respect of all the people who campaigned for the saving of the willow tree.
  10. Ok then. This issue over the removal of a much-loved tree has obviously stirred some deep feelings in Bedlington folk. The fact that it is going to be removed regardless of any campaign to save it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but how about this for a practical way to remember that tree for another 100years? ............. Why not rename Schalksmuhle Road (a poor choice in the first place, in my opinion) into something entirely fitting, like Willow Tree Drive, or Weeping Willow Way, or something along those lines, in remembrance of the beautiful tree that stood here for all of our li
  11. Here's a suggestion... Maybe they could bury the County Councillors in the hole before they lay the car park.
  12. Streaming anything uses up huge chunks of data, it's just the way it is. Doesn't your mobile provider inform you when you are nearing your limit? i get a text from EE when I've reached 80%.
  13. That's true Malcolm, but the same mistakes are being made again,...... and again,..... and again! This idea of war after war to keep the population in constant fear, and therefore willing to support laws resulting in loss of freedoms, cannot be what our forefathers fought for. War in any shape or form should not be celebrated.
  14. Sadly, Brian, many people DO forget, and I'll own up to being one of them. I never knew it was Anzac day today, along with millions of others in the UK I'm sure. However, is forgetting such a bad thing? Personally, I think we need to look to the future and not dwell in the past. The past can't be changed. Those last two lines of the verse Malcolm quoted above just highlight the futility of it all. Nothing has changed.
  15. So much for the sham 'special relationship' eh? Just listening to warnings given by Gove regarding the potential addition of five other nations, including Turkey, to the EU, and the effect it would have on our NHS and other services, should give anyone pause for thought about remaining in the EU.
  16. I see the proposed Lidl site has now been fenced off ready for action. I pass this place many times a day in my job and now all those trees look as if they are on death row.

  18. European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker has admitted that one of the reasons why Euroskepticism is currently on the rise is because “we were wrong in overregulating and interfering too much in the daily lives of our fellow citizens.” I rest my case m'Lud!
  19. I'm with you Brian. I think Brexit will be the tip of the iceberg. EU trade with the UK keeps millions of EU workers in jobs, so I can't see this ending overnight if Britain leaves the EU.
  20. The nearest cash point to me is under the mattress!
  21. Personally, I'd rather keep the trees. If they're going ahead with this they'll need another bloody roundabout. It's going to be chaos.
  22. Chrome here too on a Galaxy Ace 4 SM-G357FZ running KitKat 4.4.4 Just checked and Live! runs fine too.
