    As much as I hate Spamisery I want to read the FOI response myself.

    Can you post it up. As I can't find it online.

    I'm not comfortable about commenting until I see the actual FOI response.

    I've sent it to you by PM. We're holding the story back on Buzz until we get the results of another FoI.

    The FOI is published in this thread on the Brockwell Tranquility Facebook page:


    Counsellors have definitely been misrepresenting the situation - quelle surprise. But it does not look to me quite like a "smoking gun" as, even though they did not mandate it, the wall appears to have been one of the options proposed by the police to improve permeability issues.

    Mrs Miggins There's been a slight cheese accident

    How does Tesco being closed prove that they knew about the fence?

    A lot of these Esso/Tesco sites are currently undergoing refurbs, I suspect the schedule has been agreed by head office with the contractors without consideration to what may be happening locally to each site.

    I’m sure they couldn’t give a damn about the lost sales that weekend. It’s all about constant turnover for someone as big as Tesco.

    Exactly. And I very much doubt Lambeth Council would have bothered to give a tip off to Tulse Hill Tescos.

    I've had confirmation from the Information Commissioner that the FOI asking to see the minutes from the 2017 de-briefing meeting is worthy of investigation.

    Yep fuck 'Life', but Lambeth Council does seem to have fucked-up over allowing them to have a stall in the first place, the useless fuckwits.

    Fuck Lambeth too. Except we end up paying for their countless fuck ups. :mad:

    As much as I am pro abortion and disagree with Life if it was the foetal models that were the issue then why didn't Lambeth request they remove them? Before just removing stall with no warning?

    There's a Country Show questionnaire over here.

    But it's rubbish.

    The radio buttons mean that you have to answer a question about how you would like to contribute more money to the Show before you can move on to the next page. There is no option for not being asked to pay to support the Show.

    Likewise the question about travel requires you to give an answer about car travel, even if you didn't use this form of transport.

    I hope that the survey isn't used to influence future policy and planning.

    Of course it is. It even says so on the front page!

    I tried to enter a response stating that I didn't go because I couldn't face the prospect of queues and security checks. Even though I answered 'no' when asked whether I went to the show, the form was rejected because a following question only had the choice of going on 'saturday', 'sunday' or 'both'. Furthermore, you are forced to enter a non-zero number of attendees. Sums up Lambeth's attention to detail.

    Ive got to that point in questions. In order to continue and finish the questionnaire it tells me I must pick one of the options in contributing money to show.

    As you say there is no option to say don't want to contribute.

    This is rubbish questionnaire.

    I've emailed using the email address in the survey to ask about question of contributing next year. Saying no option to say no and can't move on unless tick at least one option.

    Brockwell Tranquility are asking all the Coldharbour candidates about their parks policy, on Twitter

    If Herne Hill Greens are anything to go by, whatever candidates say about the park in the run up to the election is largely irrelevant. Asked on Brockwell Tranquility for an update about action taken and planned since their enthusiastic election campaigning on Event Strategy issues, someone replied that they'd sent a tweet and were open to further suggestions. Jonathan Bartley himself popped in to to promise to "flag the issue" up with his team. Then silence.
