Even I am amazed by the local election results. There are 52 seats at East Herts Council and all are now filled with Conservatives. There are 16 Hertford Town Council seats and 15 are Conservative and 1 Labour owing to the fact that the Tories only put up 3 candidates in Sele so there had to be at l...
Mrs B and I were just saying that since moving to Folly Island about 20 years ago not one prospective candidate from any party for any level of government has ever knocked on our door to canvass for a vote. We get some literature but no human touch. Although I think I recall Norman Lindop knocking o...

"Do any of the people who make these decisions actually live in the town?" In my experience - NO. What fun we had at the Hertford Transport Forum trying to make Highways understand local problems when a)none of them worked here and b) none of them lived here. I don't think there is any Highways pres...
... Clintons now a restaurant ... You're jumping the gun there. It's not yet open ... and may never do so. As far as I am concerned it looks like a restaurant and doesn't obscure the fact that many prime retail outlets are becoming coffee shops or similar. Even worse if it never opens because that ...
Sad news indeed. We have often bought gifts from here and the owners have never been anything less than polite and helpful. This is just another loss to the independent trade in town; and this sector in general. Artico gone, Decorated Room gone, Michael's gone, Colin Sykes to retire although I see t...

Can I say how much I like the new layout on the landing page and even the most recent forum posts. A lot cleaner when on home page although still a lot of stuff underneath as it were.
Quite a number of years ago a lot of the production staff were moved to Cambridge where the Mercury was printed using the Cambridge Evening News as a base. A few local people were made redundant in the process and many of the journalist staff either left for pastures new or went to Cambridge. I thin...

I would support everything that's been said above. I have worked with three (I think, or four) administrations since 2001 and all of the members do care; even it must be said some who have been much maligned on these boards. I have also done some very serious head banging against brick walls with so...
Yes I will. I think it is important to exercise one's democratic right; some people around the world don't get the chance. Not too sure where my four 'x's will go as I haven't seen all the candidates literature. Unlikely to go to all one party. A question; why bother to vote. What is the point of th...

I've spoken to a few people today and no one understands this at all - including I might add Savills (the managing agents, not Cordea Savills) and Diageo. On Tuesday Savills take back the Bircherley Green car park, toilets and lifts. It was always on the understanding that it would happen only if Wa...
