• On many occasions, young families have been ushered into these rooms, much to the relief of all involved.  I suggest that the 'offices' are better suited to containing families and additional work desks be provided in the body of the Lounge.

  • Whilst we have a divided nation, politically and socially, we have little hope of free travel anywhere.  Our founding fathers clearly did not envision the 'united' Federation that we are now saddled with.
