  1. The railway line that runs from exchange sidings at Deepcar onto the steelworks is not available for use by public transport. It belongs to the Stocksbridge Railway Company (a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata steel) it is not and never has been part of the national rail network. Any suggestion that the steelworks is in someway hampering "reopening" the line to public use is simply wrong, it was never open to public transport.
  2. In Cornwall this May, a council worker had disturbed it while tidying a path, it soon disappeared into the undergrowth.
  3. When I walk my dog I always carry bags and I do clean up after him. However if some oik from the council challenges me to prove it, he can get ready for an argument. ---------- Post added 11-06-2015 at 08:21 ---------- As for horses dumping in the street, as a former motorcyclist I can tell you it's a lot more dangerous than anything a dog can leave behind, although riding down a road that has just had a herd of cows on it is worse.
  4. The best advice is to forget it. Even if you don't lose your life savings and go bankrupt you will work long hours for little reward and have to put up with all the unpleasantness that comes with dealing with drunks. All the while the pubco/brewery will be working against you, squeezing ever harder. The only chance you have is if you can buy a pub outright and fill it with customers, not easy in this day and age.
  5. I find it incredible that some people are trying to divert attention away from the idiot cyclist and are focusing on the bus driver as if he is in any way at fault.
  6. What a load of codswallop, the landlord made a decision based on what happened at the same event the previous year. "Travellers DNA diverged from settled communities between 1000 and 2000 years ago". That's not the bulk of the traveller population, whatever their background not many of them have been travelling for more then a few generations, the main difference between "them and us" is their complete and utter disregard for the rule of law, travelling allows them the freedom to rob, steal and disrupt wherever they turn up without working and paying their dues and demands like the rest of us do. Lets be quite sure who we are referring to here, white, Caucasian, mostly northern European people who have made a lifestyle choice, not ethnic Gipsies which are a distinct racial group that originate in northern India. I'm not suggesting the Romany population is without issues, especially those recently arrived from eastern Europe but that's a different discussion.
  7. Christians like Muslims and all sorts of other "god" cults are selective about which bits of their religion they choose to follow and/or treat as apocryphal, there are plenty of bits in the bible that suggest homosexuality is an abhorance and should be treated with extreme violence. So the posters that suggest "jesus" would have behaved any different to the cake makers are probably wide of the mark.
  8. This is just stupid, operators of licenced premises have a specific duty in the terms of their licence to manage their businesses in a safe and trouble free manner. if you have ever been in a pub that gets visited by "travellers" ( which aren't an ethnic or racial group anyway) you would very soon understand why barring them outright immediately is a good idea.
  9. Whilst I support the gay couples right to their freedom to continue their lives in a world free from prejudice, I also think that the cake shop owners should be afforded the same right to their personal beliefs and convictions and be allowed to conduct their lives with the same sort of choices that the gay couple are struggling for.
  10. How dare you suggest that cyclists should behave themselves and obey the highway code! Shame on you!
  11. So the tavern is now a "former pub" no chance of it reopening then.
  12. Are you seriously suggesting TC should employ gas appliance inspectors in all the resorts they use? What about electrical appliance inspectors or chemists to test the pool and water systems and food hygiene specialists to check the kitchens. It might put the price of holidays up a bit. TC are a holiday company not the local authority, I'm sure they do audits of the hotels and check the paperwork is up to local standards, they will do a quick visual inspection of the hotel facilities but that's it, it's not practical to do anything else. That's why no blame has been attached to TC because they did everything "reasonable and practicable" (for those that don't know that's a term used a lot in UK health and safety regulations)
  13. I used to know one or two Socialist Workers Party members, none of them had jobs??
  14. If you don't have any experience or familiarity with any particular editor, why not download Gimpshop and give it a try. it is fully featured and you're going to have to learn one or another it might as well be a free one.
  15. As has been said by others brake fluid absorbs water and should be changed before excess water content in the fluid causes brake failure. However the two year service interval recommended by nearly all manufacturers is for most people is a bit over the top. I bought a brake fluid tester which gives an indication of moisture level in brake fluid and tells you when the fluid actually needs changing, my wife's car is five years old and the tester still shows minimal moisture content. My car on the other hand showed excessive moisture levels, I am currently overhauling the brakes and have already spent £400 on replacement parts.
  16. What makes you think its a WW1 soldier? Looking at the picture the subjects hair is too long and the hat is not even close to a WW1 British army pattern helmet, I think the search for who the subject is needs to be widened beyond WW1.
  17. I liked Toby Foster on TV, Radio and on stage, Radio Sheffield will be worse off without him. They had better get a good act to follow him on the morning show or I'll be off to radio 2/4/5 in the morning.
  18. To be fair Lord of the Rings is a better read and a lot more believable than the bible, well the current version anyway (they do keep changing it and don't include the best bits anymore.)
  19. OP If you are serious about getting into proper photography you can't go far wrong with the Nikon D90 from Harrisons and at £95 its a real giveaway. New, and they are still available new as a current model even though it was introduced in 2008, they are still over £450 for the body. The D90 is an excellent camera, I should know I've got one. Check the review here --> http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond90/ You will need a lens to go with it, I'm sure Harrisons would have something to suit. The basic kit lens is only £120 new although I'm certain you would want to expand your lens collection very soon.
  20. Read the Koran, it's all in there. These two murdering savages are just a bit ahead of the programme.
  21. So SCC want us all to go to the city centre to get our retail therapy, why then do they do everything they can to drive motorists away, with ridiculous parking charges, one way systems and stupid bus/tram priority management etc. Pushing people on to public transport just doesn't work for the vast majority, myself included. That's why the city centre is dying and Meadowhall is buoyant. No matter what they do with Sevenstone or whatever crackpot scheme is currently on the table, unless they put aside their dogmatic attitudes and embrace every potential shopper it just won't work and will drive people to out of town developments or other cities.
  22. Or one of Bere's pork sandwich shops, I like a nice pork sandwich and you just can never find one when holidaying abroad visiting your favourite flying spaghetti monster shrine ---------- Post added 14-05-2013 at 10:09 ---------- :hihi: I actually burst out laughing at this post. You just could not make it up, Galton and Simpson, Croft and Perry you have nothing on this guy.
  23. What about a pink one? As our proud tradition of flying the red flag is all washed up.
