Many different excuses are given, as to why, but that is definitely the theme. Straight from Orwell's pen, it seems. 1 minute ago, numnuts said: BBC 'South Today' news ran a story on the New Forest in Hampshire yesterday. The gist I got from it, I was only half listening, was that central government is trying to get local authorities to encourage folks to stay local and not visit. If they do visit, then they must stay on the designated footpaths. I also caught a bit about banning residents from care homes in the area from having cars, so that they couldn't drive there, or something to that effect. Totally bizarre! I have now started a new thread on this subject here. As per the above two quotes of mine, from another thread. I think this is something that we are going to see a lot more of, in the next few years. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
