  1. I'll add the Station pub at Kiveton Park. Lovely stretch of canal there too. https://www.facebook.com/thenewstationpub/
  2. Free link here: We're not getting back with Galileo, UK govt tells The Reg https://www.theregister.com/2020/09/21/no_galileo_uk/
  3. Not a cafe, but the Bridge Inn at Ford does food and is by a dam http://www.thebridgeinn.uk/ What about Rother Valley Park?
  4. Also free (SD only) on Virgin Media basic channels package
  5. Quite easily. The M60 clockwise going to Stockport was a notorious pollution and accident and congestion spot You didn't know from one day to the next whether it would be clear or if it would be stop-start crawling traffic. They fitted average speed cameras, reduced the speed to 50mph and now traffic flows smoothly and efficiently and far more cleanly than before.
  6. Everything she touches fails. She was responsible for the track and trace programme which didn't work. https://www.theregister.com/2020/08/18/dido_harding_health_protection_institute/
  7. An anti-BBC campaign group founded by Brexiteers has raised nearly £60,000 in crowdfunding donations as it pushes for radical reform of the licence fee. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/crowdfunding-donors-give-thousands-to-defund-bbc-lobby-group-0t73j329h And this is a good read: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2020/sep/15/more-of-less-the-dilemma-facing-tim-davie-at-the-bbc
  8. A couple of weeks ago they were offering tests willy-nilly, anyone could just order one. They've now revised the conditions. It wasn't clear what the test could do either, I was under the impression it could tell you if you've already had coronavirus because my brother in law had a test and found he'd had it. A few weeks ago I ordered one Wednesday afternoon because I'm a key worker - that was one of the options on the order list. It arrived Thursday morning. It was in the post Thursday afternoon and I had my results by text Friday afternoon.
  9. I can't speak for all cases, but two Sheffield area deaths happened because people were stood in the live lane or sat in the car, instead of going over the barrier to safety. Nargis Bashir and her husband broke down. They stayed in their car for seventeen minutes before they were hit by another car. Jason Mercer was stood in the live lane exchanging insurance details when he was hit by a HGV.
  10. Its amazing how often this "international law" is broken. Canada has broken it a few times - with illegal dumping and their change on cannabis use. Even the EU themselves broke it a few days ago with regard to migrants.
  11. Here's the auction: https://bid.gilbert-baitson.co.uk/auctions/7570/ibgi10619 The Beverley is only at £6500
  12. She is a delight in the new C5 All Creatures Great and Small. I also loved her in The Detectorists, where she starred with her daughter, as mum and daughter!
  13. It sounds like an error. That kind of notice occurs when a postman feels in danger or threatened at a property, usually by a dog. So someone higher up goes to deliver.
  14. If only he'd taken heed at this back in 2016, I think we would have had a Labour government by now. Labour MPs pass no-confidence motion in Jeremy Corbyn A motion of no confidence in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been passed by the party's MPs. The 172-40 vote, which is not binding, follows resignations from the shadow cabinet and calls on Mr Corbyn to quit. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-36647458
  15. The latest tacky fad for people with more money than sense on something they can't even see.
