Capt. 'Bob''s picture

Since 2014 lack of transparency over the TTIP negotiations has led to much doubt about what is included and what is not.  Labour MEP's have been actively involved in the negotiations attempting to ringfence certain aspects, ie the NHS, alongside ISDS (interstate dispute settlements).    

"as it currently stands, the NHS would not be fully secured in TTIP: while no trade deal can force the privatisation of any public services, loopholes could be used to prevent a future Labour government from renationalising services that have already been tendered out....

Recycled: "From 1885 until its closure in 1965 the old railway line from Scarborough to Whitby took goods and passengers up and down the North Yorkshire coast. Now it's an off road route through the North York Moors National Park for walkers, horse riders and cyclists.

You might decide to make a slight detour and visit one of the quiet bays such as Crook Ness, Cloughton Wyke, Hayburn Wyke, Stoupe Beck Sands or Maw Wyke Hole, or make a circular walk of it by taking in part of the Cleveland Way.

Mortal Mindy's picture

The Town Team consultation on Eastborough held at  Market Hall hosted by the Academy of Urbanism .... when? Over the week-end 16/17th Jan 2016, held their review of  'results' last night 19th.  

Staggeringly - they 'won'!! - Unanimously with 100% consenus on their MasterPlan for the regeneration of Eastborough together with their redevelopment plans for the Market Hall.  Amazing, incredible ... 100% consensus?

Brilliant, if that isn't news then I don't know what is.... light a fire... get those fireworks !!   Erm, Who won what?  Rags to Runes.
