It's all kicking off in Blighty Tav. The government have caused a petrol strike without a strike actually taking place, so all the petrol in Wyre Forest has run dry. The Upper Class village of Broadway is getting a £200,000 grant for an Ashmolean Museum...

One point I forget to mention is that uptake of children's books is increasing I've heard. This is probably one of the most important functions of a library, young mothers taking their kids into a learning environment and taking out early reader picture...

I have to disagree with Tav's statement "Libraries are going", well it's true they are going but that's political not because they are out of date. Libraries have always been centres to promote learning & culture and to provide a community space. If the book...

If Tav keeps in some way connected to the local scene from the other side of the world that is surely something to be applauded and admired. I take my hat off to anyone who doesn't forget their roots. I have a vision, another one, of Tav sat on a pearl...

Don't take this thread too seriously 'Stupid Sandra'. No, the Health Concern posse are out of shot quickly closing in on the liberals. Some dressed in dungarees, Stetsons, cowboy boots with a shotgun over their arm, others with pointy hats and white sheets...

That's way too many liberals. If you look closely there's a man going the other way, that's a notorious Councillor from Bewdley. He heard there was a free flight going & only realised his mistake when he found there was no minibar on board ;-).

Good on you Mark, I'm surprised he wasn't lynched. This area is awash with bonkers people in the political arena. If he ever comes back to the area I'll suggest he takes a quick perusal of the Shuttle :-).

Yikes! That put the wind up me. I thought that the complete triumvirate were now back on the Shuttle Blogs for a few seconds. Don't scare me like that again!

Good luck with your flight Tav. I just had a vision of a helicopter on the roof of the Civic Centre like that famous picture in Saigon. Only without the hordes of people trying to get on, just a handful of the last remaining liberals (with a small l) gently...

In defence of Mark, cutting too far and too fast is what he was elected to do. Don't blame him blame the people you know who voted Conservative.

I wouldn't take walkerno5 too seriously on this subject William, apparently he will bend over backwards to get his children into religious school 'Holy Trinity'. As in 2012 the idea of a Christian private school is a complete oxymoron he will be bending...

When put like this most people will have sympathy but when portrayed in the tabloids the people who this article talks about are portrayed as idle scroungers, etc. A picture that is sadly all too readily accepted by the British people. That is why it...

At this point I'd have to say Miloševię, Gaddafi & Saddam's crimes were not in the same league as the Holocaust, obviously. I haven't got a problem with it being commemorated in this country, similar things have happened here in our history, a similar thing...

Well I suppose so but I just think it affects nothing and is just turning into something artificial. We say 'so it doesn't happen again' but it's happened in Rwanda and arguably Chechnya and even the Jewish people themselves are disgracefully turning...

You can't just say it's a sad comment Fran and not say why, just saying that the Holocaust was a bad thing doesn't detract from my comment. If you look at the plight of the Chechens in Poland you will see in the country of the death camps a group of refugees...

I'll be attending, just out of curiosity though how much advertising was done outside the immediate local? This still doesn't feature on the WFDC events page nor the Shuttle's.
