    Prince Phils driving exploits.

    If Chris Grayling is going to be his new driver, he's going to want his licence back ASAP.

    Wilkinsons at Darnall closing

    Maybe there was some restriction in the paperwork which prevented it being used as a supermarket, but nothing to stop it being razed to the ground and rebuilt in another configuration.

    The scottish league is a joke

    It's not just London clubs that would be a trek. How about the trip from Aberdeen to Plymouth? Leave Aberdeen at 16.00 on the Friday, overnight at Birmingham, early train 07.21 to Plymouth. And the price ? A cool £244-40 - ONE WAY. You'd have to be really dedicated.

    River witham bream fishing

    I don't know much about fishing, but there used to be trips out to Kirkstead back in the 1960s. A film was made of this excursion and it can be seen on Talking Pictures TV Fri 23 November at 15:00.

    Jared Omara MP ..

    I believe he took part in a recent debate in Westminster Hall on fracking: 31st October https://www.theyworkforyou.com/whall/?id=2018-10-31a.393.0&s=speaker%3A25636#g403.1 It would be in his interests to stand for re-election come the next election. I don't claim to be one of his biggest fans.
  10. Yes, Football Clubs are entitled to close Public Rights of Way. However the situation is more complicated. Any road closures need local authority approval in advance and there is a cost implication. However the Police can close roads to traffic (as often happens in the case of accidents) and I believe they are responsible for closing roads (or part of roads) around football grounds. In this case, ignore the directions of an officer in uniform at your peril.

    Leeds International Piano Competition

    Probably because the founder, Fanny Waterman, was born in Leeds and has connections there.
