SIT DOWN PROTEST

Post  westhamthug on Wed Nov 17, 2010 4:36 am

A Todmorden man has put it upon himself to organise a mass sit down, in front of the Town Hall, after new year he has got a thousand people to participate blocking HALIFAX ROAD, the idea of the protest is to wake up our council and make them rip up the parking meters, he needs a thousand more volunteers, one councillor said he'd put his name forward so I said I would mine too, there is going to a similar protest at BULLS GREEN HALIFAX at the same time, there is a three thousand Protesting in HALIFAX, thus blocking the hole of HALIFAX right the way through to Todmorden.

Who is this man? I heard Cllr Collins (who was dredged out of retirement to keep Mulhall from being re-elected) at the last Ward Forum say something to the extent, "places like Halifax have very poor parking, so Tod should count itself lucky" or words to that effect... So don't expect any sympathy from Halifax on that count

Tried rubbing your eyes a bit JOE you park for nothing anyway, you've got free parking ever tried car park next to Morecambe Bay next to the car park there's a big board put up next to the Todmorden Market, and before you shouting your mouth off JOE Morecambe Bay is the stall next to Tods indoor market, the reason why we call this Morecambe Bay is rather sick, when it got built it had to be pulled down again for it subsided, at the same time as the Chinese died on Morecambe Bay cockle picking.

That is not a parking meter, you don't wind it up, it isn't for just one car.
London boy who don't know what a meter is, you sure your from the smoke

By the way ..you had beter pick another name for that site ..there were alterations made....not because of subsidence.. because the walls were built the wrong way .. there was supposed to be built in seating .. but it was changed ..and someone forgot to tell the builders.. other things were also wrong ...they lay riven Yorkshire flags on the bit near the bus station ...they lasted one day before they found out these were too expensive ..and had been changed ..so they picked them up and re-laid the ones we have now .. there were a few more things but will maybee post on another topic if needed

Since when have you been a moderator on here JOE, I think your head sometimes so high in the clouds, that you don't see what's in front of your nose. there has been parking meters there in the centre of Tod Car park as well as the one outside the pet shop, next to that green thing they call the entrance to Tod Market, just one you might your eyes the meters have been their since a Labour Calderdale councillor (Pam Warhurst)* voted it in at the meeting, does thousands of signatures on petitions mean its worthless when you already new the outcome.

*Name has been changed.

a meter meters you stay, times how long you are there one meter per car. and as a rule far more expensive.

What is your actual beef with this ... THERE ARE NO PARKING METERS IN TOD .... you do not (as far as I know) know how to drive ..let alone own a car .. also why is it such an issue about the parking arrangement I have with the Authorities .. I do not ask nor want to know what arrangement you have with Gena to park your A*** outside her premises

WWWWOOOOOOOOOO Me thinks I have stirred up a hornets nest, at last a break through in communication.

No! That bit is true I cant drive, mind you I do drive but not a car, But people up the wall, but not as professional as David now that does take some practicing.

But I do feel strongly about driver and the that have driven away from Tod because of pay and display.
