Yes it was 2016 not 2014. Getting old - time merges. I have found this thread and there are two others as well. I think that back in 2014 the question posed was along the lines of Do you want a playpark on the lawn? As the majority of those who responded said yes (I don't know the figures in favour) then that was why in 2016 when a ...

Having a playpark on the lawn - a potted history Okay, so........back in 2014 (I think it was) there was a public consultation about whether or not there should be a playpark on the lawn.  Not sure if there was anything online but definitely there was a public consultation event in the town somewhere.

That is time limited and must be spent by next year/year after?  I believe the GWR money also has a similar time by when it must be spent.

Agreed - because that is a bilateral trade agreement between the EU and Canada. But just because that is the situation between them doesn't mean to say that it will be same between the UK and the EU and the UK and other countries. Look here at what arch Brexiteer Jacob Rees Mogg has to say on the subject: (my emphasis in bold) "It is thought the Cabinet has had only one high-level ...

Oh and here's the irony of irony for all those concerned about others living here who, or whose parents/grand parents, came here from commonwealth countries rather than EU ones. I have read that during the referendum campaign Brexiteers would target Indian/Pakistani communities urging them to vote Leave as a Leave win would enable more Indians and Pakistanis to emigrate to this country. That ...
