  1. The wall at the bottom of SHU on Ecclesall Road between Broomgrove Road and Collegiate Crescent has numerous holes in it. Someone told me it was the result of German machine gun fire. The row of houses opposite look a bit newer than other buildings on that stretch and I wonder whether the holes were the result of a bomb destroying or damaging the buildings opposite and shrapnel flying across the road. Does anyone know? I can only find references to Ecclesall Road being hit but not the exact location apart to a reference to the junction with Greystones Road.
  2. If you'd attached a link you might have got your facts right. Try this one; http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-40713992 The threatened fine is for homeless people leaving their possessions lying about. The council is trying to get them to take their possessions with them or put them in lockers. I accept that OCC is being heavyhanded but it's got nothing to do with trying to get homeless people to move on.
  3. You seem to have confused the words knowledgeable and misinformed gibberish. I was going to take it apart line by line but my rude reply would have been 100 times more voluminous and i didn't want to be late for work. In short, anyone who writes "The idiot Brunel" and expects to be taken seriously when discussing rail transport is on a par with someone who writes "The idiot Baird" when discussing home entertainment.
  4. If you look at your own link it shows all the proposed stations, many of which are not in Hertfordshire or Surrey. The line will service a lot of very Labour areas including Dalston, Seven Sisters, Wood Green, Tooting and Clapham as well as Lib-Dem Kingston. In any case it serves very few of the 22 constituencies you've quoted. It barely touches Hertfordshire. The line won't just be used by people travelling from Surrey or Hertfordshire into London. It'll be used by people getting on at one stop in London and getting off at another stop in London. It will also have intersections with Crossrail One and tube lines. At a guess I'd say that even tourists might use it. To say that Tory commuters in the leafy Home Counties will benefit most is ridiculous. London's public transport infrastructure needs upgrades anyway. The problem is that the government is funding London but not some of the provinces.
  5. And yet you still believe in the flat Earth theory.
  6. Absolute carnage? The 10k will take place about 4 miles from Hillsborough and will have been over for about 2 hours before the match kick-off. Next carnage - man shops at Sainsbury's on the Moor as match kicks off at Bramall Lane and loaf gets squashed.
  7. A night down the pub with you must be hilarious.
  8. Installing barriers at the bottom of the staircases would be dangerous. People would get crushed if there was a delay. And people wanting to avoid paying would just take the lift.
  9. If there are no children there can we also assume there is no wife on Mars?
  10. Or maybe not. ---------- Post added 17-07-2017 at 17:35 ---------- Or maybe not. How is it possible for someone to be 100% wrong when the facts are in front of them?
  11. I won't bother. You wouldn't know if I were right or not.
  12. You certainly need to get things straight. Last June Gove was Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary, hardly a fringe position.
  13. It looks like someone is worried that he'll lose his title as village idiot. Do you think that only teachers have training and that everyone else is fully knowledgeable of everything to do with their job from day one? Actually you probably do.
  14. Perhaps not. Your lies though indicate you've already made your mind up. ---------- Post added 14-07-2017 at 08:08 ---------- And Jeffrey is one of them with this thread.
  15. Someone who doesn't know what a full stop is criticizes educational standards.
  16. No he wasn't. He was spreading lies about something because he doesn't like the fact that a cycle ride will close Ecclesall Road. His lie was that it would also close Sharrow Vale Market, evidence for which he offers none other than "some suggestion" which he doesn't specify. If he's not lying about the EU he's lying about cycling. ---------- Post added 12-07-2017 at 07:26 ---------- The only reason you use your real name is to promote your legal business. Why did you not check your facts before posting? Because that wouldn't have suited your anti-cycling agenda. And "not tell nobody" is not a standard of English expected of a solicitor. "Not tell anybody" would be what you should have written. The reason nothing was said is because it wasn't known about as you made it up, not something a solicitor should be doing.
  17. Now there's irony. "Theresa May asks Jeremy Corbyn to help deliver Brexit and support her policies amid Tory leadership plots". http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/09/theresa-may-asks-jeremy-corbyn-help-deliver-brexit-support-policies/ Vote Theresa, Get Jeremy - the new leader of the Tory Party.
  18. A month on and some Tories are still in denial that May suffered a severe humiliation. A large membership means you have more people to get you message across. Which is what Labour did much more successfully than the Tories did. It wasn't Labour that gambled and lost a majority and 15 point lead. ---------- Post added 07-07-2017 at 15:42 ---------- Hardly surprising. They'll be demanding oaths of allegiance next. ---------- Post added 07-07-2017 at 15:45 ---------- I'm trying to see any point in that. Let's divorce and get married again. Jeremy and Diane could be the Richard Burton and Liz Taylor of British politics. I don't think another half dozen or so members would make much difference.
  19. I only popped in for a last whiff of incense and mustiness but came out with a CD.
  20. Rare and Racey was still open an hour or so ago and is flogging everything off 5 for £1 - books, CDs, whatever. Whether they'll still be open tomorrow I couldn't say but they had loads of books left. This may be your last chance.
