  1. Yea you carry on believing that.... it makesno odds as no one with any sense believes it. With what we were handed when Labour left...unsurmountable National debt which will take all our lifetimes to pay down, plus supporting all the droves of people they allowed to come and live here with not enough infrastructure to put them up . We have to start reversing the Labour trend of using our country as the lifeboat for the world. Starting with Brexit and preventing all the EU states' own colonials heading for our shores as EU citizens. We need skilled foreigners not beach vendors.
  2. Corbyn is tbe best thing to have happened to the Tories. We should reign for a long time now to sort out the mess Labour left us with on National debt. They've just announced a 2019 election pledge of borrowing £600Bn. Will they never learn? You have to live within your means, whether a country or a family. That's probably why folk who don't budget and spend unwisely vote for them. Same nonsensical way of running finances. They handed the Tories an unbelivable amount of National debt and expect tbem to sort it in 5 minutes. It will take many many terms to sort that National debt out. We've only just got the country's annual accounts looking something like healthy, never mind paying off any debt we inherited. Now Labour want to borrow more...are they crazy?
  3. Wow ...see live Ian Austin (resigned Lab MP) interview with Kay Burley this morning. Says Corbyn not fit to run country or Lab party, and trad Labour voters should vote Tory in this coming election because although he doesn't agree with all the Toies do, they are fit to run the country, and there are only two real options for PM in this election. The guy nearly broke down and said he had to be honest about the state of tbe Labour Party now. At last some honesty from a Labour MP. Good on him. Respect.

  6. Probably the immigrant Irishman who was mouthing off saying he should be in Brussels negotiating not in Morley, no doubt to get his 5 mins of fame on TV, and instead making himself look like a <removed> by showing he didn't realise it is never the PM who negotiates the nitty gritty in Brussels but his team of negotiators. Everybody leaves Morley anyway, it's a one horse suburb, they're lucky to have a visitor at all. I'd kiss Boris' feet if he came to Sheffield
  7. Where's Guy Fawkes when you need him!? He'd sort it out. Or the guy who caused the water leak into the HOC .....is he asleep?
  8. Hi I've been given the name of a roofing company, and I have seen their work, it looks good. However the satisfied customer only gave me their name to Google, as they didn't have the number at the time. It was DMJ Roofing in Sheffield. I've Googled the name but they are only coming up on Google with a Twitter account, and I don't have a Twitter account, and it doesn't have any contact details on the search page coming up, like phone number, email etc. Can anyone help with their contact details. I need a roof before the rains come!
  9. For anyone interested in old Sheffield chemists, because their rellies might have been chemists in Sheffield, there is now on line a downloadable copy (in various formats to choose from) the Register of Chemists and Druggists. If you Google Register of Chemists and Druggists it should come up on the search results. It is an American university site hosting various 'out of copyright' documents and books. I downloaded the 1885 edition plus the 1919 edition. They didn't have earlier versions on that site. Be warned:The search facility (ie searching the document or book for a name, place or term) within the site doesn't always work I found, so download the documents or books and do a name/term search yourself. If anyone knows where I can get hold of any earlier editions of the register after 1868 when the first one was drawn up I'd be grateful to learn.
  10. In following up my last post, the link to register for SYP Alerts is below: https://www.sypalerts.co.uk/pages/4246/1/Register.html I have now arranged for a request for an SYP Alert regarding this to be put out, in case one is not already in the pipeline by SY Police. Can't promise, but we at Neighbourhood Watch in Sheffield will try our best for you. We work closely with SY Police on matters concerning the community and crime prevention/solving etc, via our new Neighbourhood Network. That Neighbourhood Network is SY Police, Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) and various community groups across Sheffield, all banding together and working for the benefit of the community in Sheffield. Get involved, everyone welcome. To join Neighbourhood Watch in your area, or to get help setting up your own Neighbourhood Watch, follow the link below and do a postcode search. https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/ Kind regards Neighbourhood Watch in Sheffield
  11. Have you asked South Yorks Police to put out an SYP Alert to all registered SYP Alerts users to be on the lookout for this van or items inside being sold off? For those who don't know, SYP Alerts cover the whole of Sheffield and area. Anyone can register to receive SYP Alerts, and get alerts by email, text, or other means listed on registration settings. Images are included on email alerts. Very effective method of spreading the word on things like this. SYP control the process obviously, and decide on the merits of alerts to be put out. This one deserves an alert for sure Let me know if you can't get one put out, or don't know how to go about it. I will do what I can at my end. Neighbourhood Watch
  12. Top ups Top ups to your state pension should be considered in the light of how many years you believe you have left to live. Sounds harsh I know, but when working out the return on the investment you intend to make i.e the number of qualifying years you intend to make up on your NI record. Considering that a qualifying year can cost £700 odd plus, per qualifying year (increases each year) it is not a small sum to have to pay all at once, but remember the extra pension you get per week on retirement will be index linked and will therefore increase over time If you live longer too you'll be quids in. Also, with the poor rates of interest these days at bsnks, it might actually be a better investment. i.e better sitting in your NI account to give you a higher index linked future receipt, than sitting in a bank now getting kess than 1%. Also take into account future bank interest rates. I've developed a sliding scale spreadsheet for my own qualifying years top ups so Iknow when to stop. Qualifying years are increasing on a sliding scale now for a full state pension. The clerks don't tell you that when you ring up. By tbe time a friend of mine retires she will have 44 qualifying years on her NI record. People seem to forget that NI payments cover heath services (doctors/hospital treatment etc) as well as pensions.
  13. Well if we didn't have so many scroungers draining the system, the real unfortunates and needy in society would have a decent amount to live oneither on dole or via pensions. There is only so much money in the system. And before anyone suggests taxing the rich even more, don't forget tax is calculated on a percentage basis, so the rich are already paying much more tban tje averagd bear in terms of actual £ and pence paid. Taxing them more means they will retire earlier and close down their businesses, putting folk out of work. Or close up and move to anotber country like they did when Labour were in power.
  14. I'm guessing you are both in your 70s. If so you qualify for state pension via the old original system before the new system came in. No comparison between the two systems is possible, so don't even try. But it all works out in a fair way, even more so in the new system, as what you have put into the state system is what you get out, with optional top ups available before retirement. The 'losers' are women born in the 1950s. I say 'losers' in inverted commas because they have themselves fallen foul of the changeover system. In that they have relied on the state system never changing. i.e. receiving a standard state pension at pension age no matter what they actually contributed into it. The old system wprked that way but no more. A lot of 1950s born females contributed in a mixture of ways, minimal stamp because of husbands supporting them, or by full stamp paying for themselves. Also after a very small minimum amount on a NI record, a full standard state pension was received. Not a fair system to others paying full amounts of NI all their working lives. So these 1950s women didn't keep an eye on their own personal NI accounts, in terms of qualifying years clocked up. Leaving it to the 'magic man' to somehow look after their NI affairs, and assume the gravy train of unfair state pension payments would continue forever. So it suddenly then changed, and all those 1950s born women who had neglected their NI accounts for whatever reason, - ignorance of the system, complacency, laziness, reliance on Labour nanny state to pay them a pension, not taking any action on receipt of tax year end notices of underpaid tax and NI, not noticing that the Labour Gov't stopped sending underpayment notices out etc etc. So the 1950s women have only themselves to blame if they are losing out now in a reduced pension amount forecast. The ability to make sure your NI account is up to date has always been there. Get a forecast NOW and you still have time ( up to six years) to make up some neglected qualifying years before retirement. Go online and check your record.
