  1. Think you can forget hybrid airships etc! This firm in fact built one in 2016 ….. it crashed on its debut before crashing again one year later and being scrapped. They have failed to build any since and given it’s top speed is 80 mph and a limited capacity then despite the eco thinking which go ahead customers are going to invest …?
  2. Completely agree! Despite unfounded claims above from other posters there is no commercial sense in proceeding currently. A few private jets and ‘a bit of passenger’ (ha ha)will not be sustainable and in any event those who use go in and out of Gamston . The fact is that due to historic mistakes the 3000 or so folk employed in connection with DSA were put out of work and coppards crew seem intent on ignoring the opportunities which commercial development of the site would bring . The fact Peel took our representatives apart is unfortunate but it’s time to put that down to experience and move on . I predict nothing will change for months / years .
  3. How much longer are Coppard and his lackeys going to carry on wasting their time and taxpayers cash on what is a pure vanity project of no commercial sense whatsoever. Much as DSA would be marginally more convenient there remain 3 more realistic alternatives within 90 minutes max. the fact that Peel had the council’s pants down from the start ( as with Sheffield City) only goes to prove that most councillor’s and a large proportion of their advisors here have little nous between them . Stop the ego trip and concentrate on matters of more relevance etc
  4. Who the hell writes this rubbish that you keep posting? Do you work for the council?
  5. Interesting topic but what is not emphatically clear is whether these current ‘homeless’ are there because they can’t afford to buy/ rent or because there is a city wide shortage of social type housing….. it seems most are saying the latter? in which case please discuss the impact on availability by the 67000 ish students who now attend our 2 universities? There are around 10000 ‘foreign’ students and all require accommodation but not for a 12 months period ok some live in residences but a large part rent stock housing or so called apartments. This surely removes those from being available to the aforementioned homeless what’s the answer ? Well maybe scc should stop had out planning approvals to yet more student housing and instead concentrate on the alleged 4000 homeless? in the words of mr Bassett discuss please!
  6. Exactly! Same saddo nether edgers with nothing else to do… need to get a life . Recall being confronted by them way before the current situation at Waitrose and had to run over one old gits foot with mi trolley
  7. What time of day ? If you follow the instructions above during hours of darkness you will undoubtedly be confronted by the scumbags who inhabit the steel steps be they druggies or riff raff . Despite the cctv installation it can usually be a nightmare for anti social behaviour and one which local councillors have been trying for months to eradicate. Indeed a public meeting was recently convened by councillors at the trades and labour club to see what can be done and there are suggestions roads will be blocked . Personally I would give that route a miss and seek out a bus from the interchange which I believe go up Shrewsbury road and duke street …..drop you at the door. Sorry you’ll have to look the numbers up but do not walk after dark! Bad advice!
  8. Absolute nonsense of a claim fact is as others have said trades vehicle’s are by passing the zone hence for example the ring road is less busy (presumably scc can tell the numbers pre and post scheme) Try some of the alternative routes which are more busy once again scc and it’s officers are missing the phrase cash cow from their propaganda
  9. Not necessary on the evidence available to date and in any event the IPCC deals with climate change nowt to do with old bill Think you mean IOPC? so called police cameras do not operate as described and as pointed out earlier the chances are these are operated privately on private land by a security company
  10. Wow…… and who were the other contenders? Only 16 reported city centre stabbings, god knows how many scrap’s and numerous other crimes reported or not . What a load of crap!
  11. Indeed! could mr planner enlighten us and confirm there is a long term contract with Amey and that includes attention to so called pot holes? If so then what if anything has changed such they are not so doing ? Did the contract include for cost additions and how can we mere rate payers be sure the council are supervising this contract diligently?
  12. Which reminds me … the other day on a certain nether edge Facebook forum a local cafe ,where no doubt all the knitted jumper brigade indulge in kidney bean soup followed by spicy nettle tea ,“ invited” their clientele to come along and make a SNOWPERSON…… I mean wtf … god knows how they decorated that! No wonder this country is in a mess.
  13. Just an honest opinion whilst they have a difficult job and much is down to opinion having watched football for over 70 years it seems clear to me that the standard of officiating has never been so low both Sheffield teams have suffered with horrendous decision making this season and last night Simon hooper was probably the worst of the lot aided and abetted by the var team. How on earth the tackle on bogle in the lead up to the second goal was not a foul is beyond understanding. After his horror show against Man City then he carried on the momentum. Inconsistent all night and sadly I am coming to the conclusion the premier league is not what it should be and officials are bent ……or are they all so poor. that said United were much improved and showed more “passion” than was evident for weeks … oh for a modern Keith Hackett
  14. Whilst many councillors have no grasp or experience of such matters they seem to rely upon the so called expertise of their council officers many of whom are evidentially unfit for purpose. It’s high time they were brought to task and where necessary disposed of post haste. Will that happen well no cos we’ve seen too many examples of waste and no one pays the price meanwhile the elusive Kate Joseph’s is complaining yesterday that government is not subbing our council sufficiently. To coin a phrase what have the romans ( aka k Joseph’s) ever done for us? Answer on a fag packet please
  15. Barnstoneworth United ( not won a match for 6 years ) Gordon ottershaw and yes Michael palin supports united
