You need to ring your local authority. I spoke to ours earlier in the week, and was told the papers would be posted on 1 June, so they are obviously all different. Just hope the post from the UK to here is reasonably speedy - less concerned about sending them back, as that is normally only a couple of days.

It probably depends what "the papers would be posted on 1 June" really means. My experience of many organisations, both public and private suggests that each organisation has a "mailing process". A document being "posted" means that it is entered into that process. When it is actually put into a post box is a variable feast depending on the length of the "process". One to three weeks seems normal.

Yes ... vote "in" get TTIP as well .... a new twist on the "two for one deal" I am surprised Cameron has not used this as a selling gimmick to add to the failed package deal with Brussels.

Good to see you back, Loretta, we missed you! Feared you'd been swallowed by last Wednesday's earthquake ...

I read posts most days. But I thought I would stay out of the EU stuff. I got a job in England - painting the "OUT" campaigners "battle-bus" and helping Ken Livingstone in the art of media interviews. Went well so have been asked to do some more work.... I start assisting ED Miliband in his "come-back" to mainstream politics, next week. I must be good because Hillary Clintons office emailed me asking if I can help to improve her image so I sent them a long rope with a noose on the end.
Strange that two axseholes in politics have the same rareish, christian name "Hillary" one is a woman and the other a bloke in the USA.

France in turmoil. riots, strikes. Not a blink from the arrogant Hollande. Its a shame the British dont have a backbone and start some real action against Cameron (mr two faced .. 25 U turns in one year) and the rotten European Council who will stay in direct route towards TTIP no matter what the people say or do. Vote "OUT" of EU.... its a pseudo- corporate cabal.
Cameron is today standing alongside an - "ISIS Terrorist supporter" - Sadiq Khan hoping to persuade Brits to vote "remain". I have never seen such a psycho - unemotional, unfeeling, stone-faced slime ball as our current PM. Blair was worse.. for different reasons but Cameron .... reminds me of the appointed top managers with cold, non caring attitude.... they did not care if a member of staff committed suicide over their decisions... Cameron fits this automaton being.
