Well, when he was there - it was.
Still is

Re: Missing section of Downs link restored

A DISUSED part of the route connecting the North and South Downs has been reopened. The missing section of the Downs Link on the old Guildford Railway Line between Mill Lane and Christ’s Hospital Station near Horsham is now safe to use for anyone wanting to travel off-road.

Interesting to see that Hove Crown Court is open, as there is some doubt as to whether Webb's case will proceed on schedule at Lewes.

Re: Politics

Little did I think when I innocently started the Politics site all those years ago that 78,000 people would come to view it, and that it would run to 48 pages (although of course some of that would have been fleshed out by the labyrinthine ramblings of Banker Brown). Ant and Dec would die for such ...

Re: Elizabeth Cairncross

Interesting insights from Otter and I too hope the legal eagles will be able to provide their input. Like quarantine, how do you police it? Doesn't mean you don't try. In Canada it is an offence to drive past another vehicle which is parked by the side of the road in a remote area. This is because o...

France splits pupils at an early age into what I imagine to be the old fashioned UK system - trade and theoretical (I can't think of the correct word ). The Bac can be taken in conventional ...
