County Durham News and Discussions / Local Elections - May 4th 2017
« Last Post by Legend on Apr 06, 2017, 21:54  »
With the local elections coming up in May, the North East will be one of the last Labour strongholds in the country. Will it still be a stronghold after the Labour dominated council closed the DLI Museum and voted to cut Teaching Assistants pay by 23% ?

County Durham Property and Housing / Renting out houses

Do any of you rent houses out? Did you purposely start building a portfolio, or were you an 'accidental landlord'?

We can never prevent this happening, unfortunately, but we must be vigilant, but beyond that what is the answer?  We should have listened to Enoch Powell instead of dismissing what he said as "Not likely".  Will we ever learn?  Or is it too late?  We are greater than "them" and such deaths, as sad as they are, will NEVER take us down.

General Discussions / Another Terrorist outrage in London

Sadly, another atrocity has been committed on the streets of London. A car driven into members of the public on Westminster Bridge, then a policeman stabbed as the attacker tried to gain access to Parliament.

It seems to me that there can never be any ultimate protection against this kind of thing, as anyone has the capacity to do it. If you drive into a crowd, you can kill a lot of people, although a knife has limited range. Even border checks don't protect, as this man seems to have come from within British society.

How, and can, we ever stop this kind of thing happening?

John Kirkpatrick (Chemistry) died just the other week. JL Bowman (head) has been dead a while. I used to see Howard Beverley around and about, but he was looking a bit worse for wear. Ian Glasper (gym) has been dead a while too.

Peter Sixsmith is however very much alive and kicking  :D

Does anyone know if any of the former teachers are still alive ?

Does anyone remember the teachers from the old Grammar school in Ferryhill/Dean Bank in the 1970s ?
