Sorry about that Number 6. Equipment was upgraded and the link to the database was lost.

After a week of absence it is good to see the forum back. Despite a lack of (real) posters the amount of views illustrate the importance of a continuing (and polite) local discourse on things West Berkshire.

This looks very much like converting private risk and debt into public risk and debt, at what is a very difficult time in the commercial property market ? Should we demand that the council members and executive officers accept full personal liability as well if things go wrong ?

Perhaps a greater concentration on maths and science whilst at school needed ? Greater threats to the planet short term are the risks to biodiversity and pollution of the seas, together with the fact that the planet is being stripped of resources at an increasing and faster rate than ever before? Well done Newbury Town Council for a totally meaningless gesture in the face of the profligacy of the worlds largest guilty parties.

So the UK which produces a 1.1 % contribution to global warming emissions has radicalised it's school pupils whilst the real big players get on with destroying the planet ? If you are going to protest choose your polluters wisely !

As someone with a beard and a duffel coat I now feel rather marginalised ;-)

More evidence of the using of young minds for nefarious purposes ? I suspect that most of these young people spend an huge amount of their personal time glued to screens on the internet without the slightest thought about the carbon content involved globally in doing so ? They should drop the holier than thou stance and look at their own contributions first to global warming before preaching to others. Or maybe just concentrate on their education ?

Oh dear, if they don't understand why this is completely unacceptable then we really do have a problem with the council leadership team.
It's not only the political leadership that needs changing but the entire executive team as well. Better still abolish WBC all together.
