Yea, and I'm a pink fairy...

I'll bet if they do ever get round to getting electric buses they'll still smoke and make a hideous racket...

I was amazed at just how noisy a Nissan Leaf is. One went past me this evening - I was walking...
I thought I spotted your car outside the pink punters Jim ;)

They probably still won't run on time and will miss busses out though.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I must admit I did go past it the other day. Amused me as they have three entrances... One for gays, one for bis3xuals and another for those who aren't sure (trannies) :roll: :lol: I wondered if they have three varieties of loo to cater for their diverse clientèle :?

Anyway...

Do you really believe what MK Council tells us? I don't :twisted: Let's just say I'll believe there's electric buses when I see one - which is my usual standpoint with our wonderful council :lol: I may be wrong of course... Those of us who've had the utter misfortune to live hereabouts all our adult lives tend to grow both used to and weary of the proclamations of the council; most of which are pure imagination and often fantasy. You may not recall the promise of a monorail and that parking in CMK would be forever free. I have a very long memory :evil:

Handyman, Onto happier topics, I've replied to your PM. Sorry for the delay :oops:

I dunno, this lot said they'd revert most of the changed parking spaces back to their per-libdem prices, and they did do that.


The monorail first got suggested at the initial design plans, along with the 4 leaf clover design, with the monorail going around the outside of the clover leaves. Houses were to be no more than 5 minutes walk from a bus stop or 15 minutes walk from a monorail stop.
When the price of a monorail and the poor expansion prospects of the clover design were considered they were both dropped. The planning for homes to have more than one car in the future pretty much stayed though.

Jim, I drive past that establishment everyday and i've never noticed the different entrances, I guess you've been up and had a closer look

Although if we add your previous statement things become a little clearer...

Mine tells me my suspension is normal. It's good to know there’s at least one thing that is...
