    In the context of this thread, it was possible you were making a joke.

    I'm miffed there's no mention of air pollution, a massive killer

    "1 The proposed change of use to a hot food takeaway open late at night would result in an increased level of activity in and around the site at anti-social hours. This would create unacceptable levels of noise and disturbance for nearby residents, harming living conditions.

    There are also police concerns due to the proposal causing an increased likelihood of antisocial behavior and other crime in the vicinity. The proposal is therefore not considered to comply with Local Plan (2018) policy SP4.

    2 The proposed change of use to a hot food takeaway is likely to result in vehicles looking to stop for drivers to collect food or enable their passengers to collect food with inadequate parking facilities.

    This is likely to cause obstructions and would have negative implications for highway safety. The proposal is therefore not considered to comply with Local Plan (2018) policy DM 29"

    Still, my boyfriend was as happy as a dog with two dicks after his phalloplasty

    I can't figure out if you're saying that your boyfriend now has two dicks, or that your boyfriend used to be a woman. Either way glad you're both happy.

    if the decision is not based on sound policy reasons, it can be appealed, and the applicants would win in that case.

    This is super depressing to hear, but thanks for the informed advice. I will do some reading around this if the situation arises again.

    In this instance, as I mentioned earlier, the independent cafe being forced out was run by a local woman who runs a charity that helps other local women, it was staffed in part by her kids and other local young people, and was a million times more welcoming, and had better cakes, than any fucking Costa.

    Many independent shops and restaurants around here are quite long standing, especially the junk / antique / curios shops, and a couple of Italian and Indian places. Bookseller Crow is also a huge asset where reading and writing workshops are held. In fact I cant see any instances here of chains being more welcoming than independent places to "local" (is this euph for working class?) people than perhaps the Wetherspoons, and even that has a rival in the Prince Albert which similarly stinks and has cheap beer.

    It is sad to see how the aggressive divisive tone of public discussion has become so entrenched here too.

    Well reasoned, thoughtful post. there is bandwagoning from all sides and when everyone piles into one person, however 'correct' the initial motives, it ceases to be constructive. I know I've been guilty of this at times.

    fattist

    Jimmy Carr:

    I once had a heckler accuse me of being fattist. I said no, I think it's you that's fattest.

    Is this fattist or just a pun? I laughed.

    Reading the mail is a choice that the reader actively makes. Being trans is a birth attribute,

    Really obvious. People who make these kinds of comparisons know this and are just being provocative.
