ISLE of Wight MP Andrew Turner is encouraging residents to come aboard his mobile office to discuss burning issues when he holds his first Big Bus Surgery tomorrow (Saturday).
The advice surgery will be held on the top floor of a double-decker bus at Ryde Bus Station, close to the passenger bridge linked to the Hovertravel terminal.
"This will be my first Big Bus Surgery and I’m grateful to Southern Vectis for making it possible."
Southern Vectis general manager Matt Kitchin was delighted to support the event.
"Many people come through the bus station on a Saturday and now they can just drop in to see their MP as they go about their business."
The surgery will run from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

In the circumstances concerned, mediator is probably a more appropriate word wouldn't you say?

As an ex councilier Mr Mazillius I was quite suprised youbought your self to the level in acknoledging their posts at all a very bad judgment on your part sir

Well I for one am pleased the mediator has deleted all those offensive posts about which James Mc. posted earlier today. Why is it that people feel they need to use the most offensive of language, including expletives, to back their (usually) weak arguments?Lessons learned hopefully?

Great idea, can we have one in the West Wight please?Wow what a noisy set of comments, keep it down a bit, Sunday is better taken quietly and peacefully, etc, etc....Weather I agree with Roger or not is not the issue, the issue is civility on the Internet. Debate can be good fun as long as people don't trade insults. In the early days of the internet, you know over lets say 10* years ago, the chatting/debating experience was really good, that's why I still return and chat, in the hope for the same enjoyment. Today it is very hard to enjoy, shame.Mind you I can be a bit grumpy on a Sunday its the day I clean my rose tinted spectacles. LOL* I know the CP has not been around on the Internet since then so don't even go there..........

Be careful, everyone. A recent ruling by the ECHR means that free speech is no defence against making offensive online comments, and some of the comments here are getting close to the mark. If you have to resort to insult then you have lost the argument.As for Turner. I have always contacted him via email and have always received a considered response which indicates some effort went into investigating the issue raised.The bus surgery is, obviously, a bit of a gimmick, but the complaints about disabled access are over the top. Does anyone seriously think that Turner will refuse to see anyone who can't negotiate the stairs? Obviosly he will come down.

Perhaps he could also do a few hours at Rapanui or at the Bestival or either one of the ferry companies, that would get their names in the paper again.
