Re: Tidal turbine

It's a miracle. It produces 7% of the power needs of a population of 20,000. Great! That's enough for my village then. What about the other 69,998,600 people who live in the UK? Sizewell alone outputs more energy overnight than this project has generated in its year of existence. Bit of work to do s...

Re: MP quits 'hard left' Labour party

Let me put it this way.

Re: Who is responsible for advising purchasers that a road is private/unadopted?

Your situation is not unique and I have dealt with other similar situations.

Clarity of thought is not my strong point, but if they hadn't protected the deposit I'd be in a stronger position.
