  1. 'Well Officer.....No 68 is for sale.......I am just driving past to see if it's still for sale and to have a look at the outside' How do they prove otherwise? especially that No68 is for sale (and it is....I checked this morning !!!
  2. In answer to an earlier question.......fines levied by police fixed penalty tickets and court fines go directly to the Exchequer.......there used to be a system when a proportion of certain speeding fines could be returned to Speed Camera Partnerships to promote speed camera projects ( Government speak for buying more speed cameras !!!) but I believe that has now finished. In short, the police do not get any of the fines cash collected !!!! As for the Smith Drive/Withers Ave situation.....if you can 'state' a reason for needing access to these areas, you have every right to use them !!!!

  4. and I joined the fire brigade....my salary was £1,000 per annum thats £20 a week !!!!
  5. Watching the first funeral today on tv.....it was so so very sad and such a waste of two young lives, another one tomorrow. It was good to see such large support from the general public.
  6. From all accounts, most people seem to think Richard Branson's train set is quite a good one (or maybe the best of a bad bunch ) I would make sense to allow him to continue until its sorted out imho
  7. No its not algy....its owned by Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service, its not painted, its 'wrapped' in pink vinyl sheets (as is all Eddie Stobbart trucks) at no cost to the service...it was sponsored about 3 years ago by Fire Angel, the company who supplies Cheshire's smoke alarms, for the Manchester Gay Pride parade. Its been used many times for breast cancer awareness events. The engine itself is a reserse appliance.
