    Censorship and the inter net

    Hots on, you are confusing "content providers" like for instance "The Daily Express" with "The Internet" which is a means to transmit data. Even politicians do this. The internet is a bit like "the Post Office" in my view. If someone sent you an offensive letter you should blame the person who sent it not the post office.
  2. I'm amazed how people are finding this an issue. I have a spare room where I hang all my drying clothes on a clothes horse. If it is the winter and I can't use my washing line, bedsheets are hung over the stairs from up in the landing. As long as you have enough undies and socks to last what's the problem ? As for towels, they dry anywhere that's the point. Their texture and surface area enables a quick transfer of moisture. This happens when you dry your skin and when they are hung up to dry.

    Pour, Chesterfield Road

    Agreed with all AndyC says. For even a slow walker 10 minutes is reasonable. However if you are starting at Sheffield Train Station, I would recommend walking up to top of Howard Street alongside Hallam Uni and look for Howard Street Bus Stop (AG10) on that side of Arundel Gate (As AndyC Says) where you can catch the 25 to Bradway or 24 to Low edges or 43 to Chesterfield and wait 9 stops (8 for 43) this should take around 10 minutes in light traffic.

    Pour, Chesterfield Road

    Incidentally there is plenty of insurance if Pour is not exactly to your taste as there are 4 excellent pubs very close by. The White Lion, The Crown, The Brother's Arms (originally The Old Shakespeare) and The Sheaf View. All four of these pubs have a great range of real ales. It is well worth a night (or afternoon) out just to visit this area.

    Pour, Chesterfield Road

    The Venue is next to the White Lion Pub on London road at Heeley Bottom. There are no Trams in the vicinity, however the road is the Main A61 linking Sheffield to Chesterfield. It is Easily walkable from Bramall Lane and the following busses stop outside; 43 to Hallowes, 20 to Hemsworth, 25 to Bradway, x17 to Chesterfield, 24 to Low Edges, 44 to Chesterfield

    A new influx of boat people from france.

    Yes it will increase immigration as we will cease to have the assistance of neighbouring countries to the same degree to help manage it. Up to now we have had a fraction of the percent of immigrants as France, Belgium and Holland. Apparently the UK possesses only 2 ships to patrol 4,000 miles of coastline.
  7. I was interested to find out that the Legion have amassed £350 Million in a bank account which grows bigger each year. It seems that there are many homeless veterans who are not getting help due to other reasons rather than a lack of funds. Another issue worth pointing out was that Tony Blair was stood with a poppy on in pictures today. A man who lied about a weapons threat that didn't exist then pushed us into a war that was unwanted and was protested about by millions of people in every country in the western world. His actions led to the Deaths of Millions of innocent civilians in Iraq and the death and disability of thousands of British Troops. I'm certain all he will remember is how he has got away with it.

    Former Norton Aerodrome

    It was never an aerodrome. Just an RAF station. One of many places in and around the region that had air defences in World war two.
  9. Interesting that the Government gave some kind of financial incentive to keep public toilets open in this week's budget. As far as I'm aware the last ones closed in Sheffield years ago.

    Crawshaws Butcher perhaps closing?

    In the 20th century Sheffield had two CO-OPs because they couldn't agree to merge for everyone's benefit. And we finished up with B&C and S&E. Talk about a family feud !

    Views on the budget.

    Ok thanks for that information.

    Are you sure about that. From my understanding they kept an in crease in NI hidden. I read that some journalists only found this detail this morning.

    Derelict House on Hallamshire Road S10

    Good news. Near where I live there was a house which looked abandoned and it was owned by a man who had had a small fire. Instead of sorting it out he locked it all up got a window boarded up and moved to another job in Manchester. He hardly ever returned to the house. As a consequence, the good house opposite had owners that wanted to sell and move upmarket. They failed to sell their house for a couple of years with several sales falling though. Eventually they got the council to trace the owner and threaten a compulsory purchase order or something. There is a new law which helps out in this situation. The house got improved and the people opposite sold theirs. However the abandoned house still hasn't got anyone living in it and I expect it will deteriorate again.

    Ray Winstone in Sheffield Today..

    No Sorry. Essex gangster films! what do you take me for? The Last films I watched were "Sound City" By Dave Grohl, before that I saw the Buena vista Social Club. Is Terry Venables some kind of clergyman ? He sounds like someone from a radio play from the 1960s.
