  1. This feeding frenzy should be halted, at least in memory of Field Marshal Lord Bramall RIP. A great servant of this country, Normandy veteran, who at the age of 91 was raided by police., and his career potentially discredited. All down to the activities of an evil fantasist, Carl Beech, supported by the gullible Tom Watson.
  2. Well, as a pedestrian who is often taking my young children home: (1) drivers on a roundabout not signalling their exit at all, or very late; (2) drivers not slowing down at corners. This seems the new normal. What happened to: "If it's clear, then steer"?
  3. What was an even bigger failure was to have actually built an airport - Sheffield City, from which I flew several times - only to discover the runway was too short for long-haul flights and knock it down again. Yet another business park.....
  4. Rotherham have kept faith with Paul Warne, according to my Millers colleague, because " he knew the club inside out and had the passion to sell it to potential signings". They've made some decent signings. Give it to Lee, even if on a 12 month contract, for the same reason. Let's get off the merry-go-round of the has-beens, might-have-beens and never-will-be riders on the on-going managers' baggage carousel.
  5. Many apologies, SP! I'm being unfair to Andy with that association. He came from Buxton and scored 1 goal in 12 games - where would that put him in the all-time aggregate? Not at the bottom!! He left for Norwich City, not a bad destination. The mighty Fred is, obviously, another story. Hoping you can continue with your tea without further trauma !!
  6. Good Heavens, yes! Not one who will be hung in the Hall of Fame, though. He roamed the turf with one or two other curiosities, such as Fred McIver. It was in the Southend Survival season, by which time I think both had departed. He was quite local, I think -if not Yorkshire, at least Derbyshire.
  7. Started off assuming it would be in Liverpool, but as soon as he came outside I shouted out "That looks like the Lansdowne!" Then the tram stop was a dead giveaway. I wouldn't have guessed the pub, though it was clearly not a Spoons - his bar bill would have been much higher.
  8. Well, at least it was done "sensitively" before Christmas Eve, unlike the case of one of his predecessors.
  9. It wasn't a petulant question, it was just a stupid one, as subsequent posts have clarified …...
  10. They "need" to be parked on pavements because there are too many cars for roads which were not designed to accommodate them. Look at the suburban streets above Hillsborough/Malin Bridge. If it's bin day, you can't walk along the pavement at all, and I see parents and children on the way to school, etc forced into danger on the road. But everyone wants a car, or two, so the pedestrian has to lump it.
  11. I hope you never find yourself on the streets...it's always closer than you think. ---------- Post added 17-10-2017 at 14:13 ---------- The black - Afro Caribb? guy with grey hair who attempts the friendly handshake.....he's back. seen on 76 bus and tram. His folly is that he doesn't realise that people have memories. ---------- Post added 17-10-2017 at 17:09 ---------- Do you not read the news? Prisons are full of serious offfenders; don't think shoplifters are facing porridge these days!!
  12. Sounds like fake news. But, even if not, if there is a religious aspect to the control of body hair, and that religious aspect may be linked to extremist sympathies, then I'd consider it perfectly in order to ask those questions.
  13. Dutch, I am re-reading this remarkable work. A marvellous chapter in which Owen explains capitalism - the "Great Money Trick" - to his fellow workers. Should be required reading in schools.
