  1. Steep, narrow streets in my part of Hillsborough, cars parked both sides, but the idiots still hurtle down them. Dykes Hall Road, and around Wynyard, Garry, Dorothy etcp. When I learnt to drive I was taught to drive according to conditions, even 30mph isn't mandatory, its maximum. 🙄
  2. That sounds like 'buck passing' to me too. I hope the bank take responsibility and sort it out for you chocki.
  3. Horrific for those who died, were injured, or witnessed it. I don't know what fuels terrorism towards our country that appears to at least have offered sanctuary from war. If this isn't the right place for someone's mindset, then they should either not come here, or come and accept British society, but don't stay and kill innocent people.
  4. Poor lady. I'm pleased she's getting lots of support, and I hope the police find the people who did this. Then I hope an example is made of them by the courts.
  5. That's good to know Mort. I pop in occasionally, glad I spotted this.
  6. Sorry, thats too simplistic. Families often survive because they are not enclosed together 24/7. Statistics around divorce and domestic violence over Christmas holidays bear that out.
  7. True, but now doctors and nurses pay for their degrees. Changing times.
  8. Why would that happen? We all pay for the great system that is the NHS. If some people buy services privately, and therefore don't use the NHS, that strikes me as beneficial to the rest of us.
  9. He doesn't have a sign saying he's homeless, he may have somewhere to sleep, but no money. Not all beggars are technically homeless, there are so many reasons why he may be sitting outside, in the cold, every day.
  10. Excellent. Shelter can support you if you need them. You can get an idea of your rights on their website. https://england.shelter.org.uk/get_help/local_services/sheffield
  11. Have you approached the council re the threat of homelessness? I'm assuming you are registered with them. It could also be worth checking if there are any housing associations who take direct applications. You might also want to contact Shelter if you don't find something soon.
  12. I agree. I'm well over state pension age, and I count myself lucky in comparison to previous generations in retirement. If he is of state pension age, which he well may be, he shouldn't need to beg if he's getting his entitlements. The Archer project offers so much help. However, if as Catmiss says, he's resistant to help, then its his choice to brave the elements.
  13. Not sure its the same man. The chap who has been outside BHF recently looks over retirement age.
