Is this Britain’s most pampered pooch?

I’m not amused by the ridiculously expensive gewgaws and garments bestowed on burly bear the pomeranian – page 3, august 15.

I think it’s grotesque.

Family desperate to bring Oliver home after falling from balcony on holiday in Portugal

“Shows how important it is that you get insurance before travelling. Hope that he recovers fully.”

Therein is the lesson for us all. Do NOT travel anywhere without proper travel insurance.

Saving a few quid may well be a good idea, but not if your saving of £50 or so leaves your family and friends facing bills of £30,000 to get you back into the country after a mishap abroad.

Police not investigating dramatic Bermondsey Iceland crash further as it was a ‘damage only collision’

Absolutely shocked there’s no charges against her, isn’t Iceland looking for compensation?

Over £80 million cash boost announced for transport improvements to Canada Water and Surrey Quays

Transport is fine in this area. Can’t help but think the government are ploughing money into the wrong places… there are less connected areas of the country, and more pressing issues in London.

They had the answer with trolley bus and trams and took them away. Idiocy.

Rye Lane traders say business is still slow despite gas works finishing early

‘Garden Tax’: Kitchen waste bins still not issued and ‘no change’ in service say frustrated residents

Saw Cllr Livingstone last week. Advised him of the shambles – he didn’t realise people who paid their subscription, still hadn’t received their garden waste bins – some have waited over a month!

Also wasn’t aware that those that had subscribed in time, their brown bins had still been taken away due to a delay in the stickers being sent.

They are discussing providing complimentary facilities for community centres/TRA – this is after the TRA had to paid for the subscription (but still not received the bin).

Suggested they need many more staff to sort out this mess. He will feed this back to the Southwark ether!

Date announced for construction of major Cycyleway 4

The good news is we have 9 months now of disruption and extra pollution on Jamaica Road so in the future Donnachadh McCarthy and his mates when they fancy a leisurely weekend cycle to Greenwich they can! Doesn’t matter about the people who actually live by Jamaica Road.

Richard Haughney, via email
