  1. Thanks Irene, I will look her up, she sounds like my type of woman to follow !
  2. Horray - congratulations to Barnsley Market - yes the town is remarkably clean and shiny compared to other areas of South Yorkshire , the folk are salt of the earth !
  3. Poor Charles I wish him a speedy recovery.
  4. The WOKE virus has terminally affected the BBC, its only a matter f time before the big lumbering beast dies from it !
  5. This is a stupid story. The man is ignorant of history and facts - what's he complaining about when: a) The song itself has the lyric "Britons never shall be slaves" ergo its not about American southern slaves specifically or their lives, its a wish/declaration used in the general sense of the word slave - the song itself harks back to the glorious British Empire, and anyway it was Great Britain who first took steps against the slave trade way back in the early 19th century. b) I assume that this chap is British-born and therefore, down the generations, he will have absolutely no connection to the American slave trade generation even if the song was about that c) It's a stalwart song of a trio or more of songs that form the core set of the Last Night of the Proms, therefore if it is removed a major pillar of the whole program is gone, whats next, Jerusalem cos of some anti-semite idiot? Nonetheless I fear that at some point in the future, the miserable Woke politically correct BBC that is way over-funded by and does not deserve any part of the licence fees from us silent majority, and allows overpaid idiots like Linaker and Vorderman to rant as they wish on social media in clear breach of their impartiality contracts, will roll over on its miserable Woke belly, legs in the air, probably bent at the knees at the same time, to remove these glorious patriotic standard songs just because some sensitive snowflake musicians disagree out of pure ignorance of history with them ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ™„
  6. Oh for the days when there were markets outside WH Smith , M &S etc that they were complaining about ... Fargate is so much worse now, the only market now is in drugs ๐Ÿ˜ž
  7. I don't know why those people cannot stay in their own pubs and areas instead of lowering the tone in other more well to do areas. Surely they would be happier going out in Hillsborough and stick to their bad karaoke, intimidating behaviours and darts ๐Ÿ˜ž
  8. I agree, I cannot wait for the biased BBC, using up my tax money, to go! What is wrong with the current extremely anti-government management, it used to be fairly OK back in the 90s. I used to have the comfort of being able to switch away from that horribly biased BBC 4 morning program in the mornings and on to Classic FM instead to calm me down, and now I can't even do THAT since some posh folk have decided to only support DAB+ from now on leaving us mere mortal classic music fans entirely cut adrift listening to static or not as the case may be as its mere DAB. I'd probably listen to BBC classic music if it was on DAB but I would be afraid of it cutting into voices every so often with various anti government and anti war pronouncements ! F@@@ it ill go back to listening to CDs ...
  9. So the Shiney Sheff has hit the rocks again and may not recover from this fatal blow of being hit below the waterline? Yes it was a ship full of very colourful characters in its day ... RIP Shiney Sheff ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜
  10. I agree with you Irene, there is sod all going on in Fargate at the moment and I'm hoping it doesn't collapse into complete decline , lets hope that the flagship Marks and Sparks stays and doesn't go the way of John Lewis ... currently I'm having to fight and push aside beggars and crack addicts just to go in to Neros near the corner ๐Ÿ˜ž
  11. I've seen and heard stories that it was always very expensive in there ๐Ÿ˜ž
  12. Interesting .. what is the difference between a bar and a pub .... Well one thing in common, they all sell alcohol ! In my mind, traditional pubs have wider choice of ales, pork scratchings and scampi and bacon, people flogging things, juke boxes, the gents doesn't have to be clean or have mirrors, dogs and children are allowed ... Bars do cocktails, are very expensive, full of arty hipster people, and may do expensive food snacks too. They normally ban the aforementioned list of things that pubs allow.... ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Going back to topic, I thought I saw the Old Crown Inn, London Rd open again the other day ? However what is all that unsightly graffiti on its outside about ? ๐Ÿ˜ž
  14. I walked past 2 days ago and I spotted a big hole in the road in Fargate , near the Neros end ... are they bringing back an old idea to rejuvenate the area?
