Could you have passed on foot? that is your legal entitlement.


Through a locked gate? Via some sort of temporal flux?


Via temporal flux - or if that fails, just climb over it.

A lot of people wouldn't be capable of climbing over it.

I asked a reasonable question. It's fairly obvious why you get so much flack on your threads.

For all I know there it could be a low barred gate, squeezer gate or a stile - all common and allowable on footpaths.

Then they'll have to put their trust in temporal flux...

Why are you like this..?

Maybe it's got something to do with the way I've come to expect to be treated on here. Maybe I thought I would fit in.

But if there was another way through don't you think I would have said.

If you genuinely want to engage in an online discussion you need to do a lot of work on the way you express yourself. I've tried to engage in discussion, but your responses suggest you feel these are a personal attack and you only seem to want responses that are in complete agreement with your assertions. You repeat this pattern in just about every thread.

FWIW I agree that locking the gate is not a nice thing to do, but it may not be illegal for the reasons I suggested.

Maybe a cycle for a pub lunch somewhere is in order.

If this is part of NCN then def report to Sustrans. They will have sorted out the legals before making it officially part of the network. If down the timeline some d1ck decides to be one of them, Sustrans will sort.

Nearly three weeks,the chain is still there, and KCC don't seem to have moved an inch to do anything about it.

Oh, and I tried reporting it to Sustrans. I cannot find any mechanism on their website to report a blockage, so I tweeted them about it. They didn't reply, so I guess they are not interested.

Tw@ting is not contacting, is spouting into t'internetz. Do it properly as suggested above. Sustrans will be on it once they know about it.

He can’t answer as he’s chained himself to the gate in protest until Sustrans answer his tweet.

So if someone was burgling your house would you tweet the police or use another form of communication.

We're not talking about reporting an ongoing crime to the police though are we. You really need to get with the programme. Many organisations take correspondence via Twitter these days.
