Speaking of polls and serious research - Chchch's own openminded investigative reporter - Mike Yardley, turns in another fully researched piece on the epidemic of drugged drivers in Canterbury.
sorry that should read another load of self-opinionated self-serving tripe from Mike Yardley's paranoid universe....
I assume this is a pop-culture resonance with Tarkovsky's haunting film 'Stalker' and its enigmatic 'Zone'....
…. apparently good ideas are so thin on the ground that this one bubbled to the top.
They may have found it in some lost baggage!
The way I see it is that if mass-implemented it would be the ultimate Public Private Partnership for schools – the parents supply the buildings!
Then leave the kids to ‘their own devices’!
- like that works well on average…
…and what happens to the access of the newly created Ministry for Vulnerable Children, and wraparound services, when the kids are taken out of daily sight of the newly interconnected schools and agencies?
A system (of sorts) exists for those who needs to use it now, that could be improved, but no need for all and sundry to do it.
What we need is a Reeferendum!
I’ll see your
Kate Beaton’s Brunel.
and raise you Sydney Paduas’ Brunel!!

..speaking of 'Bruce-losers' ...
- Tony Abbott is mourned in Australia...
Whatever your feelings about Tony Abbott, the former prime minister did add colour to the Australian language and will be missed by the country’s wordsmiths.
That’s the view of Oxford University Press boss Peter van Noorden, releasing the second edition of Australian National Dictionary — its first comprehensive update since 1988.
NSFW - contains picture of Abbott (a bad) bod in togs!!
...consider the humble vacuum cleaner, then consider how fast a human could travel if he or she was the size of a dust particle and didn’t mind fatal health outcomes.
I understand that London's Victorian underground railway has resulted in a sometimes fatal disease now known as Tube-berk-closeness...
… “trickle down” is a thing.
So, the elephant in the room
is what ya get ‘down’ off,
not a duck?
