  1. I happened to see this on the news in passing and the sound was muted; so whilst I couldn't hear what she was saying, her body language was interesting. There was a lot of looking to the right while she was talking, as if she was reading something scripted or someone else was there prompting her what to say. She looked at the same fixed point every 5 seconds or so. I don't remember seeing anyone in the background behind her during the interview either though I could be wrong on that. Fair play to her for finding new, clean western women's clothes in an Afghan refugee camp too, I'm sure she fits in really well.
  2. Just be aware that if you clear your data (which is removing all the cookies stored on the iPad) you'll have to log back in to every website you visit that has a login, not just Sheffield Forum.
  3. Has anyone proposed an alternative plan to raise more funds than what the Government is going to do? Angela Rayner was on the Today programme this morning saying how awful the increase to NI is but provided zero alternatives.
  4. That sounds like a good way to start a fight in a Cornish pub! Nice one.
  5. I can assure you most of the people in Cornwall hate the EU as much as they hate the English.
  6. I think you are clutching at straws a bit here; Roy Chubby Brown isn't exactly U2 is he. What other gigs at the City Hall are sold out in January, so you can compare? For instance, Ross Noble isn't sold out and that is a show that has been rescheduled twice and the original tickets are still valid.
  7. Not any more, no. Which is quite possibly a reflection of Sheffield in general.
  8. No different for them being against voter ID but requiring photo ID to go to party meetings and vote.
  9. The whole thing makes me laugh. A think tank has been given an award for proposing a plan for a building they don't own, will not own and they have no obligations to actually turn the proposal into reality. It's as much credence as my putting forward a plan with a few slides about what to turn the former John Lewis building into. I'm sure the new(ish) owners of the Debenhams building are really looking forward to pushing through their own plans of mixed retail/hospitality only for people to talk it down because they thought it was going to be a hospital.
  10. Depends if you consider these two articles related: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/oct/25/costa-coffee-owner-whitbread-wages-need-rise-brexit-shrinks-worker-pool "We are a company that grows new jobs by 3,000 every year so having a good labour pool to fill those jobs remains important to us. If the pool is smaller the price of that talent pool goes up. I suspect the whole of the wage bill will go up in the UK if the labour pool is restricted." https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/sep/09/costa-coffee-gives-staff-5-pay-rise-as-it-looks-to-recruit-2000-workers "Costa Coffee is increasing pay for its 14,500 shop workers by 5%, as it looks for 2,000 more staff before Christmas." I'd say that's a benefit to the staff at Costa.
  11. I wouldn't have said it's hard to obtain; https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=chubby+brown
  12. To be fair, that's 300 tickets sold in advance of a gig that wasn't until next year. It's quite obvious that previously sales have been high enough to return a profit for both him and the city hall, so suggesting only 300 people were actually going to turn up to the gig is bobbins. I'm not especially a fan, just pointing things out amongst the hyperbole.
  13. https://ics-ceo-recruitment.com/job/chief-executive-of-the-icss-integrated-care-board-south-yorkshire.13877 New job positions in advance of a pot of gold from NI increases? Who knows, but £240k is nice work if you can get it.
  14. The electric scooter does seem to be the vehicle of choice for the young chav doesn't it.
