Morning all,still in your pits.
Another horrible,hot ,health hazard day,Ha ha.
I've done work at both the Severn Valley and Tyseley,my late friend Derek Harrison,(he of the Snow Hill books fame) was always getting me work
lining the carriages and tenders,in the old days if you were working there and known to the mainly volunteer staff you could more or less go where you liked within reason.

Morning John

You only hope not because you don't want thousands of Brummies blocking your streets up, although I would think your main problem would be with Cockneys.

Phil, you are so right,yesterday was manic,last day of the festival,wall to wall sunshine,thousands of visitors,mainly from London as you say
and everywhere packed to the hilt.
I'm no spoil sport,but roll on the winter,apart from this weather does me in it is nice and quiet.
We were absolutely mobbed in the Waggon yesterday,I finished my job in Rottingdean and by the time I got back to the Waggon I could hardly get in the door,and outside there was not a seat to be had (150) we did over 100 burgers and fries,and these are home made real steak burgers at £8.50 a time.
Wish I was in Alaska.

Just think of all the lovely money they bring with them and it doesn't seem half as bad.

Yes you do Signman, trickle down.
The source of wealth in your area is those pesky visitors.

Lets face it John, Brighton Council shouldn't have any trouble balancing the books. I can't see the rate being anywhere as much as what we pay in the West Midlands.

It does not benefit me in any way so ever, £4.50 average pint, £6.00 breakfast, £160 per week average 1 bedroom flat,where do I benefit.

Haven't you ever tried for a rate or rent rebate John? I don't think they give beer on prescription yet, though you never know these days whats around the corner.

Morning all

Looks nice at the moment, but a chance of thunderstorms have been fore-casted.

John if I were a free agent such as yourself I would be looking for a cheaper place to live. How did you end up in Brighton anyway?

Thunderstorms forecast this afternoon,will freshen the air up thankfully.
Phil, I came down to Brighton to run the Waggon for 4 years,got rid of the 5th missus,gave 3 houses away and decided Iwanted the easy life after fighting the clock for 30 years working to deadlines.
So I never went back, I can't be bothered now to move.
