Yesterday at 06:50 PM Planning enforcement by Excoriator

According to their website, WBC have issued NO planning enforcement notices since 2012, the last one being issued on the unlikely date of 25 Dec 2012!

These are notices requiring people to remove structures for which no planning permission has been given, or to stop work on it. If you ignore them, you can end up in court with a hefty fine to pay.

I have noticed a number of thoroughly horrible excrescences added to houses without any planning permission whatsoever, and it seems that seeking planning permission is voluntary activity. Once the structure has been up for a few years, without any objections, it cannot be subject to enforcement anyway, and you'll get away with it.

One could argue that town planning is a complete waste of time anyway, but we do have a planning department so evidently the council doesn't subscribe to this. It also seems to have an enforcement section, but as far as I can see it has been on (paid) holiday since 2012. They probably didn't come back from their Christmas break!

Has planning enforcement been completely abandoned?

Yesterday at 01:10 PM virgin health by Bennie

Hi all, I've found out that the building which houses the health centre in Laird St. Birkenhead is actually owned by Virgin Health( Richard Branson ). This is yet another example of the privatisation of the N.H.S. To draw attention to this state of affairs there will be a protest outside the building on Tuesday, June 2nd at 10 a.m. As Nye said " The N.H.S. will exist as long as there are folk prepared to fight for it" Hope to see you there. Bennie.

Yesterday at 11:01 AM Human rights by casper

I see David Cameron has got the jitters over the Human Rights Act, his government is seeking to deny the people of this country the basic rights enjoyed by other civilised nations, the human rights act is about basic common decency based on a set of pledges made in the aftermath of WW2 written to make sure that the horrors of the Holocaust never happen again and the victims of Hillsborough and ill treatment in NHS hospitals get fair redress.

28th May 2015 7:29pm Free Rexon Sliding Mitre Saw by TudorBlue

Got a Rexon sliding mitre saw free if anyone wants it. A friend gave it me. It doesn't work, could be an easy fix for anyone who knows how to fix it. There is power going to it as the laser comes on but when you go to operate it, it's like it's dead. I have now bought one from home base so won't be getting this one fixed which was my intention. Inbox me if interested

27th May 2015 11:35am Moaning Minnies : Your rights online by RUDEBOX

http://www.resolver.co.uk/?utm_source=MSE&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Newsletter

MoneySavingExpert’s aim has always been to cut your bills and fight your corner, including ensuring when a company doesn’t give you the product or service you expect, it should be put right. Yet complaining isn’t always easy – they often ignore or fob you off.
For the last decade we’ve used template letters to help – over 10m have been downloaded on our PPI and bank charges reclaiming campaigns alone.
Yet I believe Resolver can kick this up a step, so we’re now committed to marrying its technology with our campaigning background; incorporating Resolver into our guides, and feeding our template letters and experience into Resolver’s process. We hope this will make complaining smoother for millions.

26th May 2015 3:06am Silly question, new tyres by Nomad

Need two new tyres for car, ok no problem with that. But what happens to the old ones? Do they , the people who fit them for me, dispose of them? Or does it depend if I buy
the tyres or supply them my self?

One tyre is now at limit but the other has a fair bit of tread on it. so with a new alloy it would make a good spare.

I prefer to change the tyres in pairs

24th May 2015 8:56pm Moto G series 1 screen by Snodvan

X!**!X** etc - dropped my mobile on a hard floor
Glass screen has a small crack but obviously other damage. Screen colour is now pink and part of the left hand side of the display does not show. Damn! No insurance of course.

Lots of Tesco vouchers and their double-up scheme operational so a replacement 4G version will cost £75 effectively. However, I will of course want to get the original repaired.

Is TheDoctor's place still operating?
If not where is it best to try?

New glass & screen cost £30 approx off fleabay and I could be tempted in a DIY job .... but would rather have someone else have a go.

Tonight I have (I think) downloaded everything off the damaged machine onto the laptop.

23rd May 2015 10:39pm Wallasey has 31 listed buildings! by Giggler

Don`t know why but I`m really surprised at this.
I thought La Banque was?
I`m sure someone said they removed the bricks one by one and rebuilt it somewhere else? Another dream maybe?

20th May 2015 8:12pm I have a Virus Please Help by Mark

I have a virus is a title I'm using to get your attention, and just to be maybe more aware of what those viruses are and what they can do. They don't all break your device you know !!

* Computers
* Tablets
* Mobile Phones

I want to give you some basic steps as prevention but also show you why its important to have some basic knowledge. And just what a cutting edge virus is capable off.

This first video just shows you what is possible, you may think its over the top for your little device at home or in your pocket. . . . . . But is it !!!



Prevention ! - Not all viruses will break your computer or even show there hand to you, so unless you have something checking, that knows how to check then you just never know.

This video introduces you to what they are in a nice simple explained way, so you dont have to be a geek to follow, but just making you more aware.



If you think your infected or need more advise please drop me a private message Click Me and i will help you as best as i can, or you can post below and we can give you general help.

My own personal opinion is to pay for your internet security, i don't have a preference just the free ones are not always a complete package. And they have become a lot cheaper over the years.

Sometimes the only way to be rid of a virus is to wipe all your data and re-install all over again.
You may not even see the damage until its too late.
