Christine Clifford replied to Christine Clifford's discussion Trees cordoned off on the podium
"It must simply be legal. You fall over try & sue and the Corporation can say, we cordoned off the area. Agree , it is a bit over the top."
Shane replied to Christine Clifford's discussion Trees cordoned off on the podium
"It's a little bit over the top isn't it. They have cordoned off a huge area. i could only see a few paving stones wonky. I guess if people weren't so busy tweeting, texting or taking selfies as they walked along they wouldn't…"

nathan replied to Stefi's discussion TV reception
