  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. It seems as though the notices are being pinned to the poor peoples sleeping bags ,rucksacks, or cardboard boxes telling these unfortunate folk that their presence is having a detrimental effect on others in the locality and that they can be fined up to £2500 if they do not move on .


    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. What's with the rude reply? Annie has taken time to write out a knowledgeable answer and you pick up on one line to make a snidy and pointless comeback.


    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. "Crossrail 2 is a new proposed railway linking the national rail networks in Surrey and Hertfordshire via an underground tunnel through London." Crossrail 2 website


    Hertfordshire's eleven MPs are all Conservatives.


    Surrey's eleven MPs are all Conservatives.

    This includes Chris Grayling the current Secretary of State for Transport, Cabinet ministers Philip Hammond a previous Secretary of State for Transport, Michael Gove and Jeremy Hunt.


    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. Surely this will be absolute carnage?




    The date for the first Steel City derby of the season has been moved for TV purposes and will now clash with the Sheffield 10K.



    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.

  6. The curb had to be raised in areas where there were cut outs for drive ways and the over time the curb had sunk the rain water washing over the curb had lifted the pavement tarmac some people may not realise the reason why the council did this work before relaying the pavements and question what they thought was unnesessary work and cost I was just trying to make it clear how simple this action was to solve the problem I did not ask them as it was plain to see why it was being done but obviously you are of the higher intelligence bracket to make such a remark and totally understand the mechanics of road and pavement construction.


    But to high light something was uncalled for and your remark was not necessary plus you just wanted to make a comical remark totally unnesessary.


    A night down the pub with you must be hilarious.

  7. So they are telling a monumental lie to us - but you still trust them?




    Their theory of evolution is another lie that is tied in with this space travel / moon landing hoax.


    Getting us to believe in space and the universe - it will push us away from the real truth, that being the whole thing was created for us.


    When you come to realise the earth is stationary (as it appears) and that there is no universe it exposes their other big sham that we evolved from tiny life in the sea! No,the same creator that created earth obviously created life.





    Fruitcake alert.

  8. Shouldnt teachers be fully qualified BEFORE being given the job ?


    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.

  9. Wow that's rather angry. He was just trying to help I'm sure!


    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.

    But I have, as one of the few SF members using my real name (unlike your good self!)

    And did you or anyone else at SVR know about the problems before I referred to them? If so, why did you not tell nobody until I (supposedly) provoked you?


    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.

  10. ....the truth is May is the prime minister and Jeremy is not.....


    Just been on the news , May is still in power and after all this, time reading all these threads you would have thought Jeremy was leading the country


    Now there's irony.


    "Theresa May asks Jeremy Corbyn to help deliver Brexit and support her policies amid Tory leadership plots".




    Vote Theresa, Get Jeremy - the new leader of the Tory Party.

  11. Seems to me that party membership numbers and real world voter performance are miles apart and meaningless.


    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.

    Momentum win control of Labour branch and demand MP 'apologises' for criticising Jeremy Corbyn



    Hardly surprising. They'll be demanding oaths of allegiance next.

    If they have any sense they would split amicably and form an alliance.


    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.


    If they're properly sensible they would form a party that attracts the more sensible members of the Conservative party as well.


    I don't think another half dozen or so members would make much difference.
