William is just very busy - it is difficult for young and middle aged people to participate in politics as we have multiple responsibilities. It is however, important that we continue to participate despite this.

He does work extremely hard though.

Fair enough. I wanted to defend myself - which I have now done. And with that I shall leave it all said and done.

There's really no need to explain or to defend yourself Oliver.

You and William must be really hard working to get to where you have both got so far.

I'm not from Stockport, I'm (almost) married into it. I've only lived here for 18 months or so, but I actually really enjoy the diversity of shops especially where we live in Hazel Grove. You can get just about anything within a 10 minute walk. I have a few objections. One, dog poo and the other We buy gold, and pay day loan shops. They are within seconds of each other in Stockport town centre. What's going on??

Hello,

With regards to council parking charges & childrens' services, I was under the impression that councils could not make profit of charges and had to be reinvested into road based projects...not childrens' services?

Something to do with Westminster council?

Why not push the boat out and call Kevin a fossil? He could be dubbed a Hoggosaurus! LMAO.

I may be putting two and two together and coming up with four but maybe one of them buys gold off people and the other loans money to people that are short until payday? Maybe they are close together as they are competing with one another in terms of which one is easiest to get to without staining ones best Gola trainers on 'recycled' dogs dinner? Like a dole spongers Krypton Factor assault course...

Agreed that Stockport is a bit depressing down in Merseyway these days, but I don't think HG is - it does well with what it's given - a big dirty busy main road, squeezed between some old houses that weren't designed with roads in mind.
I don't think the fact that shops are struggling is actually anyones fault (although I think it was accelerated in Stockport, due to parking fees at just the time that the Trafford Centre was doing it all better and free)
Peoples' habits are/have changed. Shopping centres cannot be as big as they were, as the same amount of people do not use them. You can't make people - I get a much better, less time consuming, better value service *in a lot of cases*, on the internet.
We can't stop things from changing, because we're used to, and understand, habits from 50 years ago - things change - get over it, and adapt.

Oh by the way why is buying Debenhams wrong.
The council tax payers will benfit from this as the rent paid by Debenhams outweighs the cost of the borrowing. Oliver is obviously not in possesion of all the facts or as usual is just trying to score political points.


I've heard Debenhams is closing. Is this right? Will that mean no rental income to off set the councils investment? If that is the case, heads MUST roll!!!

Hmm, well the Debenhams thing could be a good move if you think it through.




What, as far as the end of next week Adora...?

Had our increasingly famous Cllr Hogg considered finding out how long Debenhams were committed for?

I wonder what 'business' experience Cllr Hogg has. I'm assuming of course being Executive Member for Regeneration he was key in the decision for buying this building?
