I've stayed out of this till now.

Hello TS,

Nice to see you here, hope you hang around after you've broken through the barrier. Also glad to hear of the success the campaign had.

just keep posting TS :)
10 is nothing to you :P
it was set to allow us some breathing space when the site first went up
we had our normal amounts of spamming, and this was decided as the quick fix of choice

PM to Shipp if you wish to suggest other options
but we will be keeping some form of early membership control running

cheers all

just had a response from 10 Downing Street [Primeminister's address] with regard to this issue
Headley - epetition reply5 October 2007

We received a petition asking:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Allow the development of a Families Support Centre at Grays Lane."

Details of petition:

"The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, Mole Valley Council for change of use to the property at 36 Grays Lane, Ashtead. The development is close to Headley court, a military rehabilitation centre used to treat personnel who may have lost limbs or suffered severe trauma serving their country. Many of these armed forces personnel spend months rebuilding their lives at Headley Court and need the support of their families whilst going through this difficult process. The proposed development is to provide short term accommodation to the families, giving them the opportunity to support their injured relatives. The plan also includes some alterations at the property, including installing a wheelchair ramp. The property is situated within an area of high value properties, and unfortunately there is a very negative response from the neighbours mostly objecting that the change of use will negatively affect their property prices and spoil the neighbourhood."

Read the petition
Petitions home page
Read the Government's responseOn 2 August 2007 Mole Valley District Council granted permission for the planning application MO/2007/0863 that had been submitted by the Soldiers Sailors Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA)(new window) Forces Help. The application was for a change of use of a house in Grays Lane, Ashtead, Surrey, in order to provide accommodation for families visiting injured relatives at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court which is nearby.

On behalf of the Government, the Defence Secretary, Des Browne, welcomed the Council's decision and commented that "We are delighted that Mole Valley District Council recently granted permission for SSAFA's proposed development. The Government will continue to work together with SSAFA to make best use of this new facility."
took their feckin time though
all those feckin NIMBY's [ Not In My Back Yard] getting in the way

we have NEVER given our military the respect they deserve

and it is about time that we began to repay the debt that we owe them

we should be responsible for the wounded for their lifetime
no cost cutting
no fudging the issue

we OWE them that much at least

maybe next year we will provide boots that dont melt in the heat :shock:
and rifles that don't jam when it gets dusty :P

Glad to see the PM finally came through though. It's a good thing, a country taking care of its vets.

Anyone heard from TS of late? Haven't seen him here or on gAyO either of late.

This post limit does, indeed, blow.

Perhaps five verses ten.
