The key thing here is that the people quoted are not objecting to the station - they just want an RPS.

Totally agreed.  They're asking for joined up thinking!

They're unlikely to get far with that, as Mayor Rees is opposed to them.

Well... the next Mayoral election is in 2020. At least one major party is promising to abolish the role if they win. Meanwhile, Ashley Down Station is part of MetroWest 2, which may open in 2021 but us old hands might want to sprinkle condiments on that date. Bottom line: Rees will most likely have moved on to pastures new by the time the station reaches GRIP 4/5.

"Vote for me as mayor and I'll abolish the mayorship." It could be a winning slogan!

It worked in May, didn't it?

I used to go in Shire JC. I managed to escape.

#MeToo.

Oh, and I'd have to disagree about The George in Shire, unless it's improved immeasurably in recent months. Last time I was in there you could breaststroke in the Gents. That's if you'd managed to unstick your feet from the carpet in front of the bar.

Casting my mind back, and having private facilities across the road, I think I only visited the Gents in the George once, and I kept to the shallow end.
