  1. Donald's visit -

    But wasn't the EU created to benefit Germany, everyone has a trade deficit with them,
  2. Donald's visit -

    Anyone care to explain why the EU is unfair competition to the US? Donald seems to admire the dictators.
  3. WBC You're joking!

    OH OK, it was something that was mentioned on TV a week or two ago, it was a clip about black cab drivers in Liverpool.
  4. WBC You're joking!

    So it is OK to flaunt the rules if the authorities are not there? Trying to extort £60 from someone for parking outside the white lines in an empty car park is obvious glaring idiotic decision. I guess you believe black cab drivers should be fined for not carrying straw for their horse, after all it is the law!
  5. WBC You're joking!

    But they are not enforced at 2am in the morning for example as the enforcers have gone home. Secondly, There are laws such as cycling on the footpath, indicating and so on that are never enforced. there are also ancient laws that require hackney cab drivers to carry straw for their horse for example, should that be enforced?
  6. WBC You're joking!

    and the authorities enforcing rules even if these rules make no sense is a good thing?
  7. WBC You're joking!

    Your wrong, if you go into town at 5.30 most of the disabled bays will be available as there is no demand for them yet enforcement continues In any case we are not talking about flouting or ignoring the rules, we are talking about mistakes and lack of common sense in enforcement in order to raise income.
  8. WBC You're joking!

    Some years ago I had forgotten to display a disability badge after parking in a disability bay that was completely empty (it was 5.30). I realized my mistake having walked a 100 or so yards away i returned to find a traffic warden issuing a ticket. Appeal was refused, I eventually paid £30 (half of £60) Dizzy, you would never ever get a job in WBC, common sense is not allowed. That is why the people on top in councils get paid so much because people with absolute no common sense are so hard to find.

    Ever thought about moving to North Korea PJ, I think the regime would suit you perfectly?
  10. Used to get a letter from the NHS offering you an appointment or to ring up and make one, service was not so bad, now we have the Referral Gateway, had to use it several times recently. It takes forever to get through, 30 minutes yesterday and that was quick, did I get an appointment No they said they will send me one through the post! You can email, but I did not get an answer, or do nothing, I dare not try that one!
  11. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    OK Amazon might be a bad example, although they have been loss making for years, whether that is because of accounting or it has been loss making? However fact remains a few make money in e business many don't. I briefly ventured into e business but what stopped me making a profit was customer returns

    Tesco are shutting down their online shop from 9 June, Tesco say they can not see a way of making it profitable! It is interesting that these days the high street shops can't make a profit but neither can the online shops. Amazon for example have only just started making a small profit and are investing in the high street.

    Oh, OK now I understand. Always thought both car parks belong to WBC.
  14. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    What you say kind of makes sense but then why put the offices there? It would make more sense to put them on the vacant land opposite the train station. Access is easier, parking available at the GS car park which isn't that busy weekdays, I guess I am missing something. Lol, it is so bad it is quite good

    Debating here whether the new temp market is a success or whether the new one will be? Can I ask what was wrong with the old market? Although it wasn't as busy as it used to be it wasn't exactly deserted, the food hall seemed to suffer less then the non food section and it badly needed refurbishing. The purpose of the new market along with the cinema, car park, office block and I guess park is to regenerate Bridge st and the rest of the town centre! Will that happen, that is the £100 million plus question?
  16. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    The closing times are a bit early, just looked them up and because of mobility issues of a relative who insists on coming to town with me but refuses to use a wheel chair or her electric scooter means the new market is in an awkward position. The old market nearer the car park and the bridge over the road meant it was far more accessible. BUt I will try and get there one day soon, if I tell them PJ sent me will I get a discount?
  17. Manx Arms

    Yet another listed building demolished. I guess the only reason for having listed building register is so that council can make it harder to restore old properties, there seems to be little problem in getting them demolished.
  18. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    I shall look them up, care to share yours? Well no, there is already retail, empty offices and industrial units around there that can be used, there used to be a building there that could possibly have been used as a cinema maybe, now there is vacant land and you can put boats or moor a ship on the river (could you get a small ship up the Mersey?) Really? I have been to the milk shake bar, took my niece there a couple weeks ago, not aware of the carvery or the burgers. Your tempting me PJ, is it a take away? There used to be a take away carvery place in the old market, I think, on the left by the main entrance, but closed down ages ago.

    demolition and building materiel;s account for about 30% per year of land fill materiel and recycling materials is energy intensive.
  20. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    I am not running the town down, I just feel spending £100 million pounds plus on an office block and a cinema with the hope it would regenerate the town is a gamble. If I had £100 million to spend I would be doing something along the river front.

    I bow to your superior knowledge, I know Porsche manufacture their engines in one facility. So nothing needs to change?

    How is paying someone a dollar a day to produce an iPhone getting them out of poverty? Globalization seems to be making the world much poorer, some people got rich in places like India, Mexico, China, vast majority of people are still in poverty, it is just that parts ofEurope and the USA have got poorer too. In China we are creating a super power which will threaten us militarily in years to come. Places like South Africa should be as rich as any western country with its natural resources, people, weather, scenery but corruption is preventing it to move forward.

    There not specialized, it is mass production, in a world of depleting resources and we are told increasing pollution I wonder if there is a better way?
  24. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    Because you can't. In order for the market and regeneration to work it needs to attract more people into the town if you don't nothing will have changed.
  25. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    I understand, but you would think the UK has a large enough car industry to have it done locally. Not at all, there is no reason why the third world can not manufacture for its own markets.
