  1. I hope the Emergency Services remembered to pay for their parking. As those B******ds parking people at The Lido don’t give a Toss.

  2. Hopefully this gentleman will get the support he needs, hopefully the locals that welcome refugees/migrants those with posters in their windows could also welcome local Uk people who have been left behind or fallen through the councils safety net when its not the fault of the person requesting help.
    Now refugees/migrants are arriving on our doorstep. Why have the welcome window poster messages disapperaed ?

    Time for the councillors to house all those in need, they can do it.
    Hey its better cause than sharing recycle bins,
