Thanks Pete I have shared that on a site for disabled people.
Will digest it fully later - it looks interesting.

I have been in discussion about the Government, calling people in for a reassessment, of their awarded benefits for the ESA which the
government have brought out.

Some have been waiting for over 12 months and whilst they wait they  have limited money and so struggle - crafty eh.

I am wondering after the next election and hopefully a different party gets in what the situation will be with such a back log of claimants?
If they are reassessed as going back into the same group they will be back paid - the next party could well be left with a lot of money to pay out!!

I have ( as you know) just had confirmation that my daughter is in the Support Group of the ESA, which is where she should be.

However these forms are not easy to fill in, it took me hours of research, and then typing all evidence out (12 A4 sheets) before posting it.

Many can't do it - the forms are designed to confused -

Nasty Party is the correct name for these slugs of the UK.

That's it - you set me on a rant now  >:(

Former Foreign secretary Lord Owen says he's fed up of Tony Blair opening his mouth and he should shut up !

Lord Owen sounded well narked during his interview today on the news

Seriously folks would we be listened to if we ALL completed the survey and said NO lets keep the service.
I doubt it very much.
So what is the point of spending money drawing up and sending out surveys????? 

We need to save 157 million over the next five years up to 2018.

To help achieve this it is proposed that funding for community transport and council-backed local bus services is withdrawn or reduced.

The proposals, which will be considered by Cabinet on Tuesday (September 30), are:
− Community Transport − to cut grants totalling 1,460,000 by 2016/17
− Local bus − to withdraw a total of 2.5 million towards supported bus services by 2016/17.

There are seven community transport groups in Derbyshire that currently provide a range of services for people who cannot use mainstream public transport. This is either because they have mobility difficulties or they live in areas where transport is limited.

The proposal is to withdraw all funding by 2016/17. This funding currently supports dial-a-bus 'home to shopping' services, aCTive travel - primarily health-related journeys - and a moped loan scheme for people to get to work, education and training offered through Wheels to Work.

Most bus services in Derbyshire are run by commercial operators with no financial support from the county council. But in some less populated areas of the county and at times of the day when journeys are not commercially viable we plug the gap.

The proposal is to withdraw 1m in 2015/16 and a further 1.5 million in 2016/17 from a budget of 3.7m. This would mean bus services having to be withdrawn from large areas of the county and restricting Sunday, early morning and evening services to the towns and larger villages.

Councillor Andy Botham, Deputy Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport said:

We're having to think the unthinkable. We do not want to make these unrelenting cuts which will affect services that local people rely on but we have been left with no choice and some very difficult decisions will have to be made.
"We will not take any decisions lightly and before we agree anything we need to understand what the impact of cutting or reducing funding for any of these transport services will be."

Initial surveys, to find out how well-used the various community transport and council-funded bus services are, are due to be carried out in the autumn. Residents will also be asked what kind of services are a priority.

Further consultation, which will include online and paper questionnaires, face-to-face discussions and promotion through social media, will take place in 2015.

Councillor Botham added: "We are urging people to take part in these surveys and consultations so that we can fully understand the impact of any decisions we may make. We want to ensure the funding that we are still able to provide is put to the best possible use so that we can still enable people to get out and about."

>>  it seems others are endorsing what he says.

There's lots of rich b*st*rds make millions out of war - Blair's friends via George Bush? I don't know, but I wouldn't trust the ultra rich with a bag of chocolate pennies.

The clip I caught of the conversation was some of the Military were also saying the same Pete.

Have heard this myself on the news today, would he volunteer to go with the ground troops?
Having said that I have also heard that Blair isn't the only one who is singing from this sheet, it seems others are endorsing what he says.

Doesn't really match the colour of cobblestone though lets hope they can get a colour match for potholes or it will look a mess with black patches on it.
Thanks for the information, just wondered why it was different that's all.

Lovely shots Simon

Having walked over paving featuring old railway tickets, visitors will pass over the improved footbridge and onto Corporation Street, where they will walk over paving featuring last night's half-digested kebabs, and pools of purple vomit.

We had just gone in doors locking both back and front outer doors when we heard them - dashed ouside but no time to get camera's focused onto them.
