Where are the websites?

Currently the Council's website is down. However, we've also noticed that the Eltham Labour Party website remains down as does the Greenwich and Woolwich Labour Party site.

Now we realise we may have been harsh when we reviewed their sites. But the fact they went down very soon after our review was published and they remain down nearly two months later does worry us. Surely we're not that influential are we?

Update: The Council website appears to be back online. They must've had a serious problem for it to be offline for so long.

Update 2: A kindly anonymous poster with a reading comprehension problem has informed us that the problem with the Council's website was a flood in the datacentre. What they didn't mention was how the flooding might've occured. We do have a theory though.

Are they hosted by the same people?

Maybe the council/labour got a job lot?

Hooray! It's back up now. And you can find a link to the A-level results achieved by our crappy Greenwich state schools here.

Given the dumbing down of A-levels generally, it's no surprise that even John Roan, the nastiest of a nasty bunch, has managed to get slightly better. Yet every single Greenwich state secondary school is still shockingly poor. Small wonder any concerned parent with half a brain sends their sprogs to Colfe's or Blackheath High School... or moves to a better borough.

Don't flatter yourselves, luvs, the Council site is down because of a flood.

Are you that influential? No. You're regarded as something of a joke.

At last, the hit and run anonymous flamer we've been waiting for!

We didn't say the Council website was down because of us. We suggest you read the post again - slowly - perhaps using phonic alphabet sounds whilst you do it to help you on your way. We've been told such techniques do wonders for reading comprehension.

We may very well be regarded as a joke. That's fine by us. It isn't going to make us go away. In fact, it will only make us more of the annoyance that we know we are.

I assume the anonymous poster is living proof of the benefits of Greenwich Education.

Havn't you heard Grenewcih has one of the hihgest levels of eduacatoin avalialbe!

Look at the A-Level Grades, and then compare it to the numbers of people trying to get their kids into schools outside Greenwich's control!

Is one to understand, then, that the Council has no business continuity arrangements whatsoever for its computer networks? So how credible is their business continuity/disaster recovery advice
