  1. Maybe the ones with the highest gouging from the council on rates too? Perhaps the profit is in takeaway and not sit down restaurant? I used to enjoy an occasional buffet lunch, but that's totally dead for the foreseeable future.
  2. Work from home, and we can drop the tax take and pollution down to nothing! I'm not green, but I want to see them bankrupt as punishment for their stupid ideas.
  3. Sheffield High Street and Penistone road both earmarked to close! https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/pizza-hut-unveils-the-29-restaurants-earmarked-to-close-070323690.html
  4. Well you replied to my post about no free parking, by listing parking that was not free. Perhaps pay more attention in future? No where in the centre. Have you not heard the High street is dying? That's actually what this topic is about. I think I've said enough on the topic and will link back to it when it shuts down. Might even be this year with this virus. Who wants to sit in a room with lots of people breathing in their germs for 2 hours?
  5. Where are these free (zero cost) car parks you speak of? Do you think perhaps they are virtually empty in the evening as no one wants to go there?
  6. Those car parks are free? This is what I said "Hows it contrast to free parking at the brilliant Meadowhall and Centretainments cinemas? Your reading comprehension skills aside. Its also laughable that you think people would park (and pay) in wet windy sheffield to walk 10 minutes to the cinema, when they could just pop to dry and warm Meadowhall with free parking. Or they might instead make an evening of it and go to one of the many nice restaurants at Centretainments and then a film. Where would they eat to do the same in Sheffield? Krispy Kreme? Its in the wrong location, and will not stay in business long. Mark my words.
  7. That area has a long and illustrious history of shops not making money and closing down. Remember Habitat? Red Gates? Woolworths? BHS? Didn't JD sports actually close down there not so long ago? Today its T J Hughes. Tomorrow it will be Debenhams and probably Boots. Where's the parking for the cinema? Hows it contrast to free parking at the brilliant Meadowhall and Centretainments cinemas? The moor is not an area for prestigious brands. Its for cheap tat.
  8. Its Sheffield, its been a dump forever, and the bottom of the Moor certainly isn't a nice part. What are the shops of note you speak of? All I can think of is the jumble sale shop aka Primark. Debenhams will most likely be gone this year, and I already predicted that new cinema will not last. Its in the wrong place. Where did Hotel Chocolat decide to open their store, arguably one of our few premium brands? Not down the Moor, but in the actual heart, or centre, the High Street.
  9. Its not governments job to hide the truth from its citizens. Heart breaking.
  10. I used to buy a lot from them when they were in the old House of Frazer building. Casual clothes, kitchenware, bedding. But then they decided to move into the new "heart" of the city which is far too far from the actual centre. So not surprised its gone, stupid decisions yet again.
  11. If you ask Google for a route map it actually takes into account current traffic conditions.
  12. How would they know? All the flood warning say be prepared, not that flooding was a 100% yes it will happen warning. I live next to the river and the police officer who was patrolling it said it would breach the banks last night It didn't. Its an opinion. As to their being greedy. Like most shops Christmas is the time they make their money that keeps them in business the rest of the year. So what you might call being greedy, they might see as surviving. Its individuals who must make the best decisions for themselves, they know where they have to travel to and from, and if it could be an issue.
  13. hahaha can you imagine plod doing that? But meanwhile back on the SY Police twitter it says "TRAVEL: There is still congestion around Meadowhall. We have traffic officers working hard to ease the traffic. Please keep following us for updates."
  14. River Don opposite Irwin Mitchell / Home office.
  15. Yeah, you're taking it out of context. They said the gates open at 4pm for their Christmas event. I'm pretty sure they don't mean flood defense gates. Ive taken a picture of the Don at 2:35 and one at 3:50 of the same spot, and it definitely is slowly rising. Not sure how I can post it here though?
  16. Funny they used the word gates. Floodgates? Meadowhall has doors not gates. Can report the Don at Kelham is quite high and moving very fast.
  17. Income obviously. In other words the people who pay for government and the state be the ones who choose it. I would go further. For each £10K paid in tax = 1 vote. Upto a maximum of say 10 votes. And make us more likely to get a sensible answer. Not the eternal Labour in Sheffield that wastes our money on projects that makes things worse.
  18. So do I have this right? We judge 16, 17 years old not mature enough to decide whether they should buy alcohol or cigarettes. But they are smart enough to vote for a new government? What a cynical move from the socialists who know they can only appeal to naive children. Im my view we should we should raise the age to 21. Or perhaps no age, but a vote is a right someone earns once they have paid tax for a couple of years.
  19. Despite Sheffield voting in favour of leaving the EU in the referendum, every single Sheffield MP voted against the EU withdrawal Bill and against the three day timetable yesterday. Clive Betts (Labour - Sheffield South East) Paul Blomfield (Labour - Sheffield Central) Gill Furniss (Labour - Sheffield, Brightside and Hillsborough) Louise Haigh (Labour - Sheffield, Heeley) Jared O'Mara (Independent - Sheffield, Hallam) An election is coming soon in my opinion, and we must do all we can to remove such unrepresentative anti-democrats.
  20. Gmail is not one to recommend, they literally scan every e-mail - So they can build up a profile to show you adverts that are more relevant to you. Remember, if its free you are the product.
  21. Its not an accident. They totally do it on purpose. They hate cars, always have, always will. And every change they make, makes things worse.
  22. The French bistro has announced that its restaurant on Norfolk Street, St Paul’s Place, is now closed. “Unfortunately we will be closing permanently in Sheffield, there are no plans to open another site nearby - we hope we'll still be a favourite brand of yours and if you're ever travelling the country, you'll come to visit at a different site!” Au revoir!
  23. Is anyone taking photos so we can track these people down? Name and shame.
  24. 90% of crime unsolved. Imagine if you or I were 90% unsuccessful at our job, would we still be employed?
  25. How sad that Polly Edmondson marketing and PR assistant for SIV didn't think to update the places she had advertised it with the fact it had been cancelled! I turned up and was told that only one person booked a table! Couldn't even run a jumble sale! I suppose I should not be surprised for Sheffield.
