Mast campaigners back to square one

03 December 2004 06:50

Campaigners are back to square one after winning a battle to have a phone mast switched off - then watching as owners O2 turned on a new one just 500m away.

Last Thursday, the communications mast on top of North Walsham police station was turned off after the Campaign Against Tetra Siting (Cats) persuaded North Norfolk District Council to issue a stop notice.

But the same day O2 installed a new temporary mast in the North Walsham Garden Centre without giving prior notice to the council.

A question for you, being a bloke who knows about these things - how come Budweiser is the official beer of the English Premier League (it says) when a) it's not English, and b) it's not beer?

What car,
 
Exactement. Of course, being a libertarian, I would not deny people the right to microwave their brains if that's what they want to do. I just object to them microwaving mine while they're doing it.
 
Because it's Czech and they do know how to play footie? Yes, that's a corporate battle that the yanks lost. Alternatively, you could argue that it is the perfect sponsor in that prostituting yourself to the highest bidder is exactly the zeitgeist of modern football.
 
Since when was 'wish you were here' an answer?

What portable MP3 player,
 
But why does there seem to be one set of rules about planning permission for us and another one for O2, Vodafone, Orange, TMobile etc etc?
 
Ah, but the Czech stuff would be fine and big up to them, as the young people say, for telling the men from Milwaukee where to go.  I suppose you could also say that the US stuff looks and tastes the same when it comes out as it did when it went in and there's probably a footie type allusion in there somewhere but I can't be bothered to find it. 
 
When somebody asked why the chicken crossed the road?
 
And why is the greengrocer down the road selling asparagus from Peru?  Last week it was garlic from China.  And by the time its been flown half way round the world, how much does the poor sod in Peru who grew it get?  The price of Peruvian marching powder has obviously collapsed.

Wat Tyler.
 
Because they are doing the politicians a vital service. By enabling the yoof of today to spend all their time sending text drivel to each other, they prevent them from developing the capacity to think for themselves.
 
It has probably slipped down the back of the sofa, along with your car keys.
 
But do chickens cross the road? I've seen a zebra crossing. I've seen a pelican crossing. But I ain't ever seen a chicken crossing.
 
Sparrow grass.eh? I thought that Peru's second largest export, after 'talcum' powder, was marmalade sarnie-munching bears. Must be all part of this new-fangled globular economy people keep wittering about.
