IT is easy to moan isn't it? Much harder and less fashionable to say ''Well done!'' or ''Jolly good!''.

Positive events aren't very often news. However Haringey Council is to be congratulated for at last overcoming the doom-mongers, Job's comforters and gainsayers with the introduction of a fair, sensible, reasonably priced controlled parking zone for the Muswell Hill shopping area.

At 20p for 20 minutes it is cheaper that East Finchley (30p for 15 minutes) and it is already noticeable that it is easier to park and shop due to a higher and quicker turn-over of parked vehicles.

I think we'll find that once bedded in, local shop trade will increase as folks realise that street parking is more readily available.

Of course the complainers will still carry on - but without any sensible or constructive alternative. For them, moaning is enough!
