  1. Well... At least you didn't do this... https://metro.co.uk/2019/04/19/hilarious-google-maps-****-blurs-totally-wrong-body-part-9263484/ Or did you?
  2. I do love these constant reminders about the 17 million who voted leave, despite the repeated calculations of what a no-deal would actually cost us as a country. Always puts me in mind of something else tho... Oh yes: https://www.ft.com/content/6ec09b2e-5388-11e8-b24e-cad6aa67e23e QUOTE: About 17m workers possess the numeracy skills of a primary schoolchild Coincidence?
  3. I don't think this is a daft question at all. And I must admit that I haven't done any research on this because I am way too busy at the mo - just browsing on my lunch breaks. But in my role I do deal with issues that refer to the home nations, such as devolution, so have some knowledge of the matter. The way I understand it, it is the UK that is a member of the EU, NOT England, Scotland, Wales and NI. That means if the UK leaves the EU, Scotland would then have to leave the UK in order to apply for their own membership into the EU. This would likely come with all the strings attached to any new country wanting to join - such as having to adopt the Euro and all trading / lawmaking conditions. There are many of these conditions and the UK only adopt 3 of them - a better 'deal' than any other country who is a member (I believe Denmark adopt 4). Should Scotland be successful and given EU member status then, has been said elsewhere, it is likely a hard border will be required, along with currency changes etc. Whether Scotland will actually decide leaving the UK and joining the EU would then be worth it is debatable, but not impossible. Happy to be corrected on any of the above - like I say, I haven't had time to research.
  4. One of the options for government, already suggested by a few Ministers, is for them to vote to change the law in order to allow a third vote. Another is for them to ask the Queen to suspend Parliament ans then restart it again, making it a different 'session'. I wonder if May has enough b@lls to try either of these optiions? Cabinet meeting today so I guess we will find out.
  5. I was up in the north east yesterday, visiting the outlaws, so thought i might pop a long to see these poor sould and have a laugh... https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/1101391/brexit-march-leave-eu-nigel-farage-march-to-leave-brexit-news-latest QUOTE: "the protestors were forced into taking a five-mile detour after forgetting the Tees Transporter Bridge is closed on Sundays."

    Ask for Angela Scheme Sheffield

    Did you expect more? Though I suspect that the idea is that the party feeling that they need to use said service will excuse themselves for a moment and go to the bar, then ask out of earshot of the other. You'd be rather worried if your date asked in front of you, after dinner when the bill turned up, wouldn't you? Especially if you've done nothing wrong and they just decided they don't like you. But on the whole it has to be a good thing.

    Ecclesall Road in trouble

    Kelham Island was mental this last weekend. Queues to get in Peddler and no room in some of the places around it - including the Workshop and the various brewery taps. This was as early as 5-6pm. Whilst queueing I also noticed a little antiques / curio shop had opened up opposite Peddler as well, so not just the bars doing trade. Though I do wonder whether they will get anything on a wet Monday afternoon. Good to see, though. Yes, it's literally NOT the Champs Elysees

    The Crow

    According to a conversation a friend of mine had with Chris and Kate last week, they are hoping for it to be open in 6 WEEKS not months. It does sound a tad ambitious to me. But then I guess as long as the bar area is done, they can always do the upstairs while it is operating.

    Ecclesall Road in trouble

    You forgot the chocolate shop, the party shop, the gunsmiths, the music shop, the jewellery shop and the wedding shop. But yeah, like 'literally' none
  11. Try this one - which is on Stoney Streey - in the Lace Market... https://www.ncp.co.uk/find-a-car-park/car-parks/nottingham-stoney-street/ 1 hour £4.00 1 to 2 hours £8.00 2 to 3 hours £13.00 3 to 4 hours £17.00 4 to 24 hours £22.00 Earlybird £7.50
  12. Yep. The £120m revamp of the town centre looks actually to be mostly on track with the new town square and indoor shopping centre linking the new Market and old Alhambra centre due to be completed by the end of next year - something SCC will be wondering how is possible! Whether it improves the overall feel of the town one can only hope. It might just end up giveing the spice-heads something nice to look at.
  13. Darn straight. The Lace market NCP in Nottingham charges £17 for 3-5 hours .£30 for 24. Now THAT is expensive. I drive in to Sheffield for work most week days - down Penistone Road, up Netherthorpe Road, Along Hannover Way to St Mary's Gate where you have a choice of 3 (yes 3) car parks. All of which offer concessionary parking for £5-£6 a day if you get in early enough, and cheaper on Saturdays. Now admittedly I travel in at 7am and back home at 4pm to avoid the worst of the rush hour, but only tens to take me 40-45 mins each way from Barnsley. So not sure how other's are having so much difficulty from that end of town.

    A new micropub in Hillsborough

    Yes indeed. Let me know if you ever go into a 'Chinese Restaurant' that doesn't serve much in the way of Chinese food, and whether you would be happy with that.
  15. Well we had the lovely experience of the last bus to Barnsley on Saturday (No.2 at 21:55) driving straight past the stop at the Rutland with the driver waving his hand to indicate that he couldn't pick up. With no trains, this meant a £27.50 taxi home. Something I am currently in the process of claiming back from Stagecoach and requesting a full explanation. The bus had the right number and destination on it and the lights were on. The driver clearly saw us. So will be interested to hear what the explanation is. But either way it doesn't inspire confidence in bus services at the mo.
