  1. Try https://www.sheffield-made.com/ Lots of cutlery there.
  2. Good to see that the PM is sticking to his guns and lying again. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56281934 Looks like all his cronyism is being protected - the illegal contracts that were illegally issued by Hancock have still not been published, but Mr Boshambles just lies and lies and lies...
  3. This map shows you where the zones are; https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/parking/apply-parking-permit/parking-permit-zones There used to be maps which identified the fact that there are some free (non-permit) parking spaces in these zones, but I couldn't find the link - Sorry. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ It flags the lies that SCC told about creating a PPZ around the City Centre - whereas in fact all they wanted to do was to target the SW and Hillsborough. It also highlights the fact that it wasn't about helping those people that lived in those zones as the zones used to be a lot bigger with more flexibility around parking, but now they have reduced the sizes of the zones while not limiting the number of permits so they have oversupplied permits compared to capacity.
  4. Can anyone recommend a carpet layer to re-lay a few sq m of carpet which was lifted for some building work? Probably less than an hours work located in Greystones. PM please.
  5. Auckland - 3 cases = lockdown and few deaths The UK - a gazillion cases (ok, a slight exaggeration) and we are talking about removing lockdown and a huge number of deaths. Anyone else notice the discrepancy between the impact of an effective leadership leading to effective policies (NZ), and the populous rhetoric of a lying, cheating, sexist, racist PM who allows the mother of his child to dictate recruitment policies for the government, and who hasn't got an effective policy though in his head (UK)? ??
  6. I see crisps are now being held up crossing to NI. This'll be one of the benefits of brexit - reducing obesity due to lack of supplies.
  7. So a child sees someone in the nude - so what - I'd much rather my kid saw that than some drunk rolling about swearing in the street.
  8. Pity they have recently sold of the Leaf battery plant to the Chinese who have not got the same commitment. https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/sunderland-battery-plant-envision-nissan-18367089
  9. Leave through and through - never mind the shambles we have, it could be worse, look over there. My parents always told me, the only time you count from the bottom up is when you are running away from lions, never be last. All other times, count from the top down - see how close to the top you are, after all, that is your target. The Leave mentality seems just to be don't be at the bottom, but I fear the lions are getting nearer due to their choice. Can't wait to rejoin whatever EU there is in a few years time - keep the light on! From September - nothing like being current - this is nothing like being current! I guess next we will have the notification that we have a deal with Germany (held aloft by Chamberlain, as opposed to our little fascist, Mr BoShambles)
  10. Anyone who says that he is justified traveling 7 miles to cycle round the Olympic Park is not being realistic - these are safer venues closer to No 10 for him to have his little jolly. No, he is just taking the mickey yet again. One rule for Boris, one for the rest of the UK.
  11. I see the PM has one set of rules for himself and another for us plebeians. "Boris Johnson has been criticised for travelling seven miles from Downing Street to go cycling during lockdown. " Mr Hancock said: "It is ok to go if you went for a long walk and ended up seven miles from home, that is OK, but you should stay local. So the 2 people from Derbyshire who were fined for traveling 5 miles were breaking the law, but MrBoShambles wasn't? - hypocrite!
  12. Johnson has built his career on telling lies... and being racist, and sexist, and a cheat (all of which have been proven and are in the public domain). And yet people voted for him and what he stands for - the UK's very own Trump. How long before he rallies his supporters to deny democracy for those who aren't taken in by his lies? Oh, I forgot, he's already done it - for once he was leading in his thinking, not following like the lemming he is. The sooner we can get back into the EU the better, I just hope we haven't destroyed too many livelihoods before we do.
  13. Looks like it is the thin end of the wedge... https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/bees-kill-pesticide-insect-sugar-neonic-b1784693.html "Environment secretary George Eustice has agreed to let a product containing the neonicotinoid thiamethoxam to treat sugar beet seed this year in an effort to protect the crop from a virus. " Strange they are being proactive about a virus rather than hoping for herd immunity...
  14. Lots of suggestions; https://www.auto123.com/en/news/frozen-car-doors-locks/66495/
  15. The biggest problem was that the Leave campaign could promise the world (as they did) and promise that it would be the land of milk and honey afterwards wiothout having to prove anything. This is where we are now - soon people will be saying - "you promised..." and when they realise that much of what was said was empty rhetoric and lies, then the pendulum will swing the other way - but we have shot the golden goose - there is no going back under such favourable terms as we previously had.
