  1. There's a bus to Swinton and then a train but the direct buses to the station are only every 30 minutes. Or you can get a bus to Rotherham but that will be slow. You could though get a Rotherham bus and get off at the top of Swinton and walk for 5-10 minutes down to the station. Going the other way there are loads of buses to Wombwell but the train station is a good 15 minute walk from the stops there. Trains are half hourly. The 72/ 72a though goes to Hemingfield which is nearer but they're only hourly. If you can't cycle to one of the railway stations I'd say Swinton's your best bet but Wath's not positioned for good commuting to Meadowhall.
  2. Don't think it was as there were no ambulances or damaged vehicles. A police officer said they were "testing the road surface". An unmarked police car then kept going up and down from the crossing at the bottom of the water wall to the crossing at top end as if it really was testing the road surface. The surface looked no different to usual so what they were testing for I couldn't say.
  3. Millions? NASA's budget this year is nearly $20 billion. http://spacenews.com/nasa-receives-more-than-19-6-billion-in-2017-omnibus-spending-bill/
  4. He died without a funeral plan in place so his family just used a coffin they'd made earlier.
  5. You got 6.3%. A year ago the UKIP candidate got 20% and 2 years ago 22.1%. If you consider 6.3% an outstanding success then you probably think that getting 10% will make you king of the world. If I were you I'd ask one of your UKIP councillors to get you a support worker. ---------- Post added 17-06-2017 at 17:53 ---------- You don't need the last 4 words of that sentence.
  6. By calling a completely unnecessary election and losing her majority.
  7. Ironic since you have just failed to become your own MP. Perhaps the voters of Brightside & Hillsborough were put off by your not being able to use google.
  8. Roberts didn't even get voted Celtic's player of the season. That went to Scott Sinclair who not many are calling to get into the England squad; http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/scott-sinclair-wins-celtic-player-10331839
  9. You'd have to feel sorry for anyone having to get into bed with Arlene Foster.
  10. Did he promise £350 million more every week for the NHS?
  11. Good decision to take the Tories' majority off them meaning that May's wish to introduce more grammar schools has failed its 11 plus.
  12. 80% SNP 63% Sinn Fein 47% Plaid Cymru 45% DUP I'll have to move.
  13. Sad story about Inspiral Carpets drummer, Craig Gill, killing himself after 20 years of tinnitus. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/may/05/inspiral-carpets-drummer-craig-gill-inquest-tinnitus

  15. "A UKIP MEP could face bankruptcy after she failed to pay damages to three MPs over remarks she made about the Rotherham child abuse scandal. "Jane Collins was told to pay £358,000 in damages and costs in February after being sued for libel and slander. "But, she appeared in court in Hull earlier on Monday after failing to pay. "A spokeswoman for Ms Collins said after the hearing that she will face bankruptcy proceedings if it is found that she cannot make the payments owed". And she'll be out of a job in 2 years on top; http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-39847826
  16. It hasn't diminished at all. It's still worth 16 ounces.
  17. Parents drinking in there while their kids waited outside. Uncle getting knocked down. Yes. Happy memories. Happy days.
  18. Labour will still have plenty, plenty, plenty more than UKIP who at least don't have any seats to lose.
  19. There are two options each for 220 and 240 and none for 325.
  20. And how do you propose doing that if you live in High Peak?
  21. Spar on Ecclesall Road was on open on Christmas Day. Just so's you know.
  22. Really? I used to cycle downhill with my arms crossed and do a 90 degree right turn trying to stay upright. Another wheeze was to go straight out into a road without looking and see how many adults shouted at us. This was back in the 60s.
