  1. I once saw a zebra crossing on London Road.
  2. Here's a Guardian article about the tram-train being 5 times over budget and nearly 3 years late. Government ministers have decided to keep throwing money at it rather than cancel it; https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jul/04/sheffield-rotherham-tram-train-budget-nao
  3. FIFA seem to be leaning towards introducing it at next year's World Cup; https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jul/01/gianni-infantino-vars-2018-world-cup-confederations-cup-fifa
  4. This would massively increase the number of offsides and put teams at a massive disadvantage when defending a corner or free kick near their own goal. An attacking team could put all 10 outfield players in the opposition half and get an easy offside if the defending team cleared upfield.
  5. I thought the idea of it becoming a mosque was a fantasy caused by the paranoia of the EDL, like the time they organised an anti-halal demo outside a KFC on Penistone Road that didn't actually serve halal.
  6. My sad case was rattled by your ignorant post. I was replying to a nonsense claim that most parts of Sheffield are being taped off because of crime. You tried to substantiate this nonsense by the fact that the road outside the station was taped off a week earlier. However this was due to the road surface, not any crime. And it's not as if it would have represented most of Sheffield anyway. You had no evidence to support the claim and just exposed your ignorance by saying something that was factually incorrect. ---------- Post added 03-07-2017 at 19:13 ---------- Longley: 1882 crimes. Wicker: 499 crimes. http://www.thestar.co.uk/revealed-the-crime-figures-for-your-area-of-sheffield-1-8014693 Longley appears to be nearly four times viler.
  7. You only need a parachute if you're jumping out of a plane. Most people have never had one and most people will never need one. Just like guns after all but not in the way you think.
  8. Is that what he means then? He said it's most places in Sheffield but what he actually meant was that it's just round the Wicker. I'm grateful you cleared that up, being a mind-reader and all. As for the station last Saturday, there was a separate thread about it on which I posted to say that I had asked a police officer at the time who said they were testing the road surface, which I actually saw them doing. So cut the crap.
  9. So most places in Sheffield have been taped off by the police, have they?
  10. To avoid defeat on the Queen's speech the government has agreed to fund abortions for Northern Irish women carried out in England. So the anti-abortionist DUP has got free abortions for Northern Ireland. Hilarious. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-40438390
  11. OK. I don't usually go that far. A black guy used to beg outside Sainsbury's but I've not seen him for a while though that might be because I rarely go there. Someone who knows him says he's not homeless but occasionally his girlfriend kicks him out.
  12. Really? My impression of Ecclesall Road is that it's a lot better than it was 6 months ago. The ones that were always outside Boots have moved on and the only ones I see are the bloke with tattoos on his face and someone he's always with. And they never seem to beg, just drink. The South African bloke who used to sell Big Issue outside Tesco and who was sleeping in the Waitrose roundabout last winter has also been moved on too. ---------- Post added 29-06-2017 at 11:41 ---------- One good thing about yesterday's rain was that it washed that little corner of the smell of urine. The stench on a hot day when you're waiting for a tram can be nausea-inducing.
  13. The Tories on here are in denial that June 8th was a bad result for May. And also that Corbyn did far better for Labour than anyone predicted. Anyone who argues that it was worth May's while to have an unnecessary election and lose her majority is definitely in denial. ---------- Post added 27-06-2017 at 17:34 ---------- ... but large enough to win Hallam.
  14. I can only count 2 MPs who died in 2016 - Harry Harpham and Jo Cox. ---------- Post added 27-06-2017 at 17:00 ---------- Of course the sore losers never wanted a divorce in the first place. The DUP did and so hopefully their £1 billion will be diverted to the divorce bill.
  15. The only one I can think of was For The Many Not The Few, which tied in well with Labour's anti-austerity programme. Tories who would prefer to learn from the failure of their campaign rather than wallow in denial should read this; https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jun/26/tory-election-machine-fell-apart-negative-tactics
  16. Would that be because working class people vote Labour in large enough numbers?
  17. Reminds me of Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, who lived to kill and was shot dead on a Texan gun range where they tend to believe in gun ownership for personal protection; https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jan/06/real-american-sniper-hate-filled-killer-why-patriots-calling-hero-chris-kyle
  18. We've had 3 terrorist attacks here in recent months. Do you think it should be easier for them to get guns? In 2014 8,124 people were shot dead in the States. Here it was about 50. The USA's number of gun homicides is 160 times ours for a population that is 6 times larger than ours. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2016/06/16/gun-violence-united-kingdom-united-states/85994716/ https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/14/upshot/compare-these-gun-death-rates-the-us-is-in-a-different-world.html
  19. You've always been more of a NF/BNP person as evidenced from the following; ---------- Post added 26-06-2017 at 19:00 ---------- I don't want to upset you but you have a Labour MP.
  20. That must be why Sheffield has so many Tory MPs.
  21. That must be why they've had to do a deal with the DUP to get a majority. PS Congratulations on having a Labour MP thanks to May.
  22. Yes. It's not as if Cameron called and lost a referendum and May called a general election and lost her majority.
  23. You know full well he was saying that May wasted millions on an unnecessary general election solely to increase her majority and it blew up in her face. She lost 3 years of a majority in order to gain another 2 and all at our expense.
