A questionable butterfly


Diana Mond

Well, my assumption was that a decision had already been made for there to be a playpark on the lawn and given that, we were then only asked where we thought it should be. If there was still an option for no playpark at all on the lawn anywhere then there should have been a question explicitly asking: Do you want a playpark on the lawn? Yes or No? That could then have been followed up with: ...

Hang on a minute! Hang on! If there was no question on the consultation paper asking whether or not people thought there should be a playpark on the lawn then how can anyone claim that 76.9% thought it was a good idea? Am I missing something here? As I understand it, the questions were concerned with where on the lawn the playpark should be located not whether or not there should ...

Then you take your ticket that has now been through the paying machine and then when you reach the barrier you insert it and the ...

Can one of you explain please why it is that in some car parks you take a ticket when you go in and then pay whatever amount is due for the amount of time you have stayed in the car park when you leave, whereas for other car parks you pay at the beginning of your stay for, say, 2 hours, even if you only use the space for 1 hour?

I think what it has to do with a playpark is that the town councillors voted that the town should have one. That was a political decision made by the majority of them. With few exceptions all the town councillors successfully stood for election against other candidates . That is politics. I am still confused as to what some people think other people should have in terms of qualifications in ...

So.......the only way to gain the experience necessary to be a councillor is by having been a er.............councillor? And as for a working party. Would those on it be elected on to it or would they be self selecting? Would a pre-requisite be that a candidate must have been a councillor somewhere at sometime in their lives? where has @ER113 said anything about city & guild etc ...
