Answer John the plan if it had been thought through,and perhaps if you would have sought comment from more than the few residents on Chapel street it would have worked well.Instead we have grid lock, frustration, and local business that at this time are suffering.We are facing the same issues we faced with the congestion charging.And to be honest i could use the same arguments i used when i sat with the Liberal Democrats. Of course your idea would get support from the Green party but there is always a but.We would have asked do you have relief roads planned and clearly marked to take any short term strain. What alternatives are we offering the public in regards to alternative transport, have we reduced the bus rates to entice people to change.Are the Buses that will take the main business fit for purpose IE ENVIRONMENTALY FRENDLY? will we be looking at changes in their fuel.What are the long term plans for the area, do we have a business plan? Job creation,further growth if the plan develops will there be no long term effects on the residents , will there be security in there tenancy and we would not be creating a Langworthy road where social cleansing as taken place. In realty only the rich can live there.John we will fight for and support Green Projects but not at any cost. PS john did you get the bus in to Manchester or Drive? You see we may be green but we do Believe that people have a choice.

Dress witches in pink and avoid white paper to prevent racism in nuseries, expert says
Teachers should censor the toy box to replace witches’ black hats with a pink ones and dress fairies in darker shades, according to a consultant who has issued advice to local authorities.
From the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz to Meg, the good witch from the Meg and Mog children’s books, witches have always dressed in black.
But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.
Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades.
This rubbish breeds racism it does not cure it,so lets get it together and remember we are all the damn same no matter what colour our skin is.

A quarter of English universities failed to meet their targets to admit substantially more disadvantaged students last year, a government watchdog has revealed .
Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter, Durham and University College London are among 23 institutions that admit making insufficient progress in widening their mix of applicants in 2009-10 – leading to accusations that the intake of the most selective universities is “increasingly privileged”.
