Dad who died in crash seen staggering
Very sad incident that cost a young man his life. I wish his young family the very best moving forward.
Why an alcohol measurement relating to ability to drive is used in these cases makes no sense. The man wasn't driving, he had no intention of driving.

Concern over electoral roll ‘revolution’
Would it not be better to make it law that every one registered to vote, and then leaving up to the person weather if they choice to vote or not, Like how the Australians system is and also up on the ballot sheet "no candidate"

Teachers rally in city
Green Ginger wrote:
Those people commenting here that we are workshy might want to have a chat with my husband, who isn't a teacher, because he was the one that finally told me at 10.30pm last night to get off the computer and stop working. That was after a day at school starting at 7.45am until 6pm. I got home, ate a meal, put my daughter to bed, then started work again at 8pm. That's a normal day for me. I work on the weekends as well. And I will be in school this half term running revision sessions, planning schemes of work for next half term and catching up on what I estimate to be 12 hours of marking. I know other people who aren't teachers work as hard as this, but why is it that some of them feel we should all suffer? There's nothing to stop those who are complaining from getting their teaching qualifications and joining us in what they perceive to be these 'easy' jobs! Pease do - we are desperate for staff, because guess what, no-one seems to want to be a teacher any more! I have a position in my department that's been vacant for two months now - despite advertising in the national press, we have not had an application from a single qualified teacher. That is really what's going to harm our children's education.

Barriers could return to toll bridge
Traffic held up, long queues during rush hours with polluting exhaust gasses building up - perhaps a legal challenge to the 'Green' policies of the council or is this exempt from the strict - wrong rubbish in your bins type green policies?

Thousands more to be asked to pay for a third wheelie bin
**** Pete wrote:
Why do we not do the same as the Spanish?
At the end of most roads is a big wheelie bin station and you can recycle etc...They are emptied Every day.
The lorry needs just one person the driver. So costs are kept down and the risk of disease.
Plus nothing looks unsightly. Like our horrible bins.
Most old people have friends or neighbours take the rubbish to the bin for them.

Dan, I know you read these comments, please, please, please can you remove the "Premier league" advert. It takes up a lot of memory on my monthly allowance and I may well have to leave the Echo site where I have enjoyed commenting and reading the news on here. I know I am not alone on this, each time we comment, there it is again.
Please respond with your comments.

Three arrested for trying to incite riots in Southampton
It amazes me that they were not aware that they were potentially committing a criminal offence, if Newspapers can tap phones, monitoring of other communication devices should be relatively easy, so anything on them should be capable of being used as evidence against them. More publicity about it should have some sort of detterent effect.Here's something about BlackBerry security.
The encryption used to transmit/receive BBM and email cannot be broken currently by law-enforcement.

Public to be charged to visit Tudor House
Paramjit Bahia wrote:
Apart from immorality of introducing charges for visiting something which was free there is even greater matter of concern. Tory run “council is selling the management of its internationally- renowned art gallery, Tudor House museum, and the £15m Sea City museum being built”.
This could be the first step towards privatisation of our important heritage and assets. I suspect when fully privatised (sold cheaply to well connected people) all these important places will be at the mercy of greedy sharks of those companies, who may find building expensive flats on these sites financially more rewarding. That could end up turning our heritage into history.

Bridge reopens after man talked off ledge
Nearly an OAP wrote:
As I have said before on this site if the sides of the Itchen Bridge had been made higher in the first place these attempted suicides would almost certainly not take place. I cannot see a potential suicidee carrying a stepladder to the highest point of the bridge. Meanwhile the council are quite happy to spend £100,000 on new lighting here. Until something sensible is done these attempted suicides (and successful suicides) will keep happening. Think on Southampton City Council.

Saints ban stars from 125th anniversary bash

Who has alienated himself with his behaviour in the football community.the current regime could be history sooner than some of the muppets think... That story of the arab take over of saints sits nicely along side a hedge fund managers periodical I read the other day,, it basically lists saints as the third most attractive "buy" in british professional sport at the moment. The summary column listed a ratio of 3-1 over 5 years if potential "brand" return is reached ( ie premiership ). Muppets like the turrets syndrome sufferer "puppy saint" would of course run out of fingers and toes long before being able to fathom the feasibility of any such scenario but its certainly on the cards if the right investor wants the buy-it and the potential it brings. There were only 4 football clubs on the entire list, I seem to remember. The conurbation expansion projection for housing was also cited as another massive potential for the "brand"

saints is run by control freaks... we are a laughing stock around the country for things like the photographer ban. So newspapers do mock-ups with subuteo figures etc etc and take the pi55 out of us. "Banning" people from attending things like this is not in the spirit of the club I used to know. It smells of Orwelian leanings.
I agree with the comments about promotion being the focus,,, so why cause all this fuss saints and create distractions for yourself. Its stupid. Just like the photographer ban and stupid barriers installed at st mary's car park.

SCC wouldn't be able to maintain multistorey car parks if they were free. It's well known parking charges apply all year round bar Christmas Day and Easter Sunday. Surely people must have better things to do on a Bank Holiday and trudge through shops. Spend time with family and friends instead.
