@ Nell, Could not agree more. As a dog owner that picks up on anything lying around, Iam amazed just how filthy and dirty people are today. They throw their rubbish about everywhere. One has to wonder what kind of filth and mess they live in at home.

The shout 'What about our environment' starts with each individual and their immediate surroundings. Dispose litter responsibly. If everyone did such a small thing what a world of difference it would make.

Average of 55 people killed or seriously injured on Norfolk region's roads each week.

What ever is causing this shocking behaviour when Norfolk drivers get behind the wheels of vehicles. 30 mph limits are now completley ignored, aggression, stress, anger, anxiety traits are now common each day on these roads. But, nobody seems to be asking the correct questions, WHY? I think one of the answers is media pressure to spend as much money as possible to inhance peoples egos, leading to severe debt, (UK personal debt now nearly 2 trillion pounds). Drug use now out of control, alcohol, antidepressants. The roads are now crowded so bad that tempers are at boiling points when held up. And, things are only going to get worse.

don't get me started we had call barring no outgoing calls yet mysteriously kept getting charged for calls not made we were then told call barring had been taken off ..without informing us due to a technical difficulties but as everyone in house has mobile the phone had not been used as we believed it had call barring they then denied we ever had call barring saying we had no evidence , i have now asked for itemised bills no direct debit and for the call barring to be put back on the line
it seems a real rip off

Happily Single and Friendless

I'd find some new friends, if having friends in contact with you is important. I wouldn't waste time on people who don't reciprocate. People do grow apart, even in close relationships. If you have one or two good friends who remain friends the rest of your lives, that's remarkable. Otherwise, friends come and go.

Over the years, I have had some comments removed, because someone has complained. Then re-instated, but what the complaint was there is no indication.

Now over the past three days, the ability to input comments has been removed. I have reported this to the DM Tech and yet there is still not action. This happens on all browsers, so have I been banned or is there a problem with their site?

Annoyed

I have been using C11 for a long time but now it's getting even worse... You wait for more than 14 min to get in one and it gets so packed specially in the morning... Firstly I believe they should use big buses for this route at least in the morning's and after 3pm this would help with the crazy packed bus... People fight to get in I get so disgusted... If I go early to the bus stop instead of getting early at work I'm just there standing in the cold waiting and waiting and then to get pushed... It's bad! Hopefully one day they realise we need bigger buses and more often...

"According to a Labour Party report, there are plans to reintroduce higher taxation on bigger cars, increase fuel duty and company car tax along with mandatory road pricing and charges to park vehicles at work. Moreover, the party would put in place higher fines for speeding also reduce motorway speed limits in order to force cars to travel more slowly and pollute less".

I'm voting for the Labour Party, about time the UK stopped this car madness. If you want a big gas guzzler, you should pay through the nose.

I don't know when they will sort out public transportation in Milton Keynes. Especially Bus 8 it's is so unrealiable. Can you believe bus not showing up on a Monday morning not only one but two buses going to Rail station. This was between 08:58 and 09:15. In the afternoon the the 14:38 did not turn up. I left to take a taxi at 15:00 .

"Anyone who may have witnessed the collision, has dashcam footage, or may have seen the manner of driving of the vehicle prior to the incident"

Every time this statement is made in the press there's a large percentage chance that the Police already know the cause of the crash, but need backup from indepentent sources to prove without doubt speed, youth, stupidity, drugs, boose, etc are the cause.
