  1. Every 'freedom' has a cost though. For years, drivers and airline passengers haven't paid the true cost of making these choices. For example, the damaging effects of particulates from diesel engines has only recently become a mainstream topic of debate and discussion. The NHS is now bearing these costs in more and more people presenting with asthma in built up areas. The individuals themselves who's lives are shortened by air pollution are bearing the costs. Similarly with air traffic. It is one of the least taxed forms of travel. Expansion of airports is seen as the economic miracle (the years of debate over another runway at Heathrow.. Johnson's ridiculous idea to build another airport for London v rail expenditure in the north of England..), at the same time as the climate is warming. So, yes, happy for people to make these choices. As long as the implications of those choices is understood and paid by the polluter. Only then will people switch to transport methods which have less impact. Yes, I am in a 2 car household. Both quite modern engines, one is a petrol hybrid.
  2. I would imagine that training would mainly focus on the legal issues around this, rather than how to support people in crisis. Hopefully, NHS MH Trusts will have to ensure that there are sufficient resources in their crisis teams to manage demand- recruiting more AMHPs or other specialist workers. It may lead to a greater emphasis on preventing crises from ocurring in the first place but I am not holding my breath.
  3. I might be wrong, but my perception is that there are instances where Police Officers do wait in A&E. I would hope that this is based on a risk assessment but I don't know. In any case, if there are only limited numbers of officers covering a geographical area, having 1-2 officers waiting in A&E must have an impact on responding to other 999 calls.
  4. There's a big difference between having a crisis which requires to be sectioned under the MH Act, and people being more aware of their own MH. Hopefully it will focus the mind of NHS leaders and politicians. A police custody suite is no place for someone who is in crisis. Police Officers shouldn't be expected to wait in A&E with any patient. Maybe if Police Forces sent invoices to the Trusts for the time spent, it would focus minds on this matter.
  5. The whole article is suitably vague. Presumably so the paper doesn't get sued, as Harry is far more litiguous now he is a semi-private citizen. Just enough detail to sell a few papers & get some clickbait on the website.
  6. According to this link: https://www.meadowhall.co.uk/event/summer-beach, there's a lot for people to do.
  7. The park will be re-opened this weekend, yes. I didn't say that the damage would be repaired! Lol.
  8. I think it reopens this weekend. There's sign on the railings for the park.
  9. Once again, what 'profit' do SCC make from Tramlines? Fees for the license for the event to go ahead- just as any event involving alcohol and loud music would require? A fee for the use of the land? Hillsborough Park has recently had considerable investment, in the form of a fab new skate board park, maybe the fees from Tramlines funded that. Locals have representation via their elected Councillors, as we all do. Statements have been released from Tramlines & the Council, which make it pretty clear that Tramlines are going to bear the cost of the work to Hillsborough park to make it good.: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-66290477.
  10. Do SCC own Tramlines? I thought it was a private company?
  11. As my dog rolled in human **** a few weeks ago which was deposited in my local park, shall we consider what is worse? TBH you have practically named and shamed this individual and their dog.
  12. Thank you for sharing this link. I looked a few weeks back and could only find information for 2021.
  13. Maybe ask the local councillor for help with this.
  14. If it's anything like the new 'Grey to Green' areas, it will look so much better.
  15. Have you looked at the Money Saving Expert website? There is some good advice on there about the options. If you are wanting to use cash, the exchange rate can between the providers.
  16. Village halls- such as Bradfield, Oughtibridge? There may be local businesses that could cater for you as well (School Rooms at Bradfield, I think there's a cafe at Oughti..). Advantage is the space and a great big field for young & old kids to run about in.
  17. Trouble is, these are words. At the end of the day, the Council spends a high proportion of it's budget on Social Care, and is reliant on capital grants from Government to pay for other initiatitves (such as the famous containers). These grants can only be used for certain projects.
  18. I've been to some odd pubs in my time, but this is a bit strange. BTW, I would have the same opinion if these were teddy bears or clowns. I understand that a pub may sometimes seem as though it's an extension of a home but this is a bit too far along those lines for me.
  19. I'm not offended by them. I wouldn't want to go in to a pub where these dolls were on display. I doubt any publican is going to be bothered what I think though. I don't think these kinds of items send a very good message about the people who own the business. Why a business owner would want to put off any potential customers is beyond me.
  20. My initial thoughts were that these were strange things to have in a pub. If collecting these items are a hobby, why put them on a display in an area where members of the public see them. I would think that if the items were railway carriages or dolls, so I'm not just picking up on them just because they are gollywogs. I think the landlady is being provocative by having these on display.
  21. Did he outline what the Lib Dems would do differently to the current administration?
  22. The Lib dems are campaigning hard in this area. Very negative with the claims in their campaign leafletting. According to their leaflet, the Lib Dems have a plan to make Sheffield better. It's s shame that this plan isn't detailed in their campaign literature!
  23. This probably reflects the trend of 'colour blind casting': https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/colorblind-casting-bridgerton/. Given it's political leanings, the Telegraph would have an issue with this approach.
  24. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2023/apr/05/how-tory-royal-funding-deal-gave-rise-to-king-charless-potential-cash-windfall Have many other newspapers covered this story? I doubt it...
