We believe that a proposal to outsource the integrated community equipment store within Brighton & Hove City Council is fundamentally wrong.  Council-run services are the best due to the commitment and training of committed staff who work within the service.  The service deals with some extremely vulnerable people in the community and profit should not be the motivation of such a service.  We therefore call upon Brighton and Hove city Councillors to reject this proposal and retain in-house s

UK Law Change For Innocent Abused Animals

And not so long ago someone stole a Labrador, tied a brick to its neck and threw it in a canal. A lot of these idiots are doing it becau

Does The Organist Entertains on Radio 2 do more harm than good?

Over the last 10 years or so The BBC Radio 2 programme The Organist Entertains has gone from bad to worse. Someone in charge has dictated that they will now only play Classial and Theatre Pipe organ music. Anything electronic and popular has been banned. As a result the popularity of the programme has plummited and unless things change I'm sure the BBC will just drop the show. If you want to hear more popular and electronic organ music in addition to Theatre and Classical Pipe organ, then please
