  1. This morning there were people coming out the multi storey onto Midland Way then going straight back in forty yards up the road for another crack at a parking space. That was at 9.30...
  2. A reference to the skittles era facelift there, I see what you did. I drank with some of the paving artistes at the time, believe me, they were neither expert, Italian nor tradesmen!
  3. It just took me an hour and twenty minutes to cross the town and they've only coned one lane off on the roundabout yet. It's going to be hectic when they actually dig a hole or something!
  4. The goons on the street might have thought they were fighting for independence from the British, but the hard core Marxists running the show knew better. Looking at the antics of Adams and McGuinesses Sinn Fein these days, intent on flooding Ireland with immigrants, the old timers must be kicking themselves.
  5. Things have settled down a little at the King and Queen lights, aside from a bit of spit and polish I can't see any difference.
  6. I certainly think that people should get what they deserve, which isn't necessarily the same thing. I'm a little cynical about 'justice', I believe the authorities are currently offering the drug multi millionaire 'Cocky' Warren freedom within days if he hands over £200m of his ill gotten gains, which rather suggests that justice is on open sale in this country, I don't doubt for a second that it's also available for political gain instead of actual cash. Would you call letting the Warrington bombers off scot free and forbidding any further investigations justice by the way?
  7. Actually, there is a big push on at the moment to stop any further investigation of terrorist crimes and cancel all pursuit of the guilty parties. What a coincidence that the British Luvviecasting Company has chosen this time to stir things up.
  8. It's a pity the modern day riff raff who visit terrorist training camps abroad and then return to this country don't get the same treatment. Preferably out of the window of a Hillman Avenger by a hirsute chap eating an Aztec bar...
  9. Well they certainly have an impressive line up of Chiefs, as these outfits tend to do, are you touting for Indians to flesh out their operation PJ?
  10. Here's another link with the info about the Nigerians, just so you don't think I was spoofing! http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/333097/Tories-fail-to-solve-immigration-crisis-that-blights-Britain
  11. Why, a Guardianista like yourself, I thought you'd have them all lovingly archived! http://www.theguardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/dec/20/boundary-changes-census-millions-lose-out http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/comment/city-eye-facts-on-a-plate-our-population-is-at-least-77-million-395428.html
  12. Oh, The Guardian, Independent, places like that...
  13. This is possible, but Tesco are rather good at their game, I reckon they would have factored that in. Furthermore, when Thames Water released figures for sewage produced in one area, Slough, it turned out there were around 30,000 more people in the town than the official figure, which tied in with the Tesco estimate, there are other sources which agree too. Just to illustrate how rocky the governments numbers really are, between 2004 and 2007 a mere 1455 Nigerians were given leave to enter the UK, but 39,500 were issued with new National Insurance numbers. Somebody is fibbing somewhere.
  14. A couple of years ago Tesco released an unofficial estimate based on sales volumes of a range of staple products nationwide. According to their study there are almost 80 million people living in the UK. Most odd.
  15. Good Grief, walking away from that must have felt like losing the weight of the world off your shoulders, there can't be much pleasure in being a landlord these days!
  16. £25,000 a year to find and that's before you start, then there's money for heating, lighting, staff wages and that other tiny item...beer. No thanks!
  17. It was an awful bridge, a couple of girders with some steel plate laid on top, I don't know how it lasted as long as it did. An entire industrial estate, with all the heavy traffic that that entails, has been forced to use it for its sole access for years, an industrial estate which pays its rates like anyone else, if the inevitable need for a new bridge has bitten the council on the backside that's just too bad.
  18. These vinegar faced snitches must spend their lives looking for people to report to the Political Correctness Agency (motto: "You've had a little too much to think."). Ms Szeto should be cautioned for wasting police time.
  19. There it is. People can afford to visit Widnes market just on a whim, park right outside and wander round in their own time, not pay through the nose to park and then go on a camel hike as they have to do in Warrington.
  20. It has to be said that those pictures weren't posed by actors, that young ladies are indeed throwing up and passing out all over the show, and that the 'drink ten pints and nut a stranger' brigade is alive and well. There was a similar article in the papers about 2 years ago, true, but in my opinion that smacks of lazy reporting rather than a vendetta against the town. The fact is, nowts changed in two years...
  21. And moving swiftly back to parking, why on earth hasn't the empty land next to the Bowling Green pub been pressed into service by whoever owns it? It's been lying idle since they knocked an old theatre down, which is going back a bit.
  22. I'm afraid that UKIP are going to have to up their game, their rapid growth has sucked in people who would be first rate local councillors but make lousy front line politicians, they're sitting ducks for the media and are being shot to bits accordingly. Shame really.
  23. The 'best' self serving, unelected, career bureaucrats maybe...
  24. The gentleman's outrage stems not from the fact that he was offered the heinous insult of a beef pasty, meat which a muslim is permitted to eat, but that the animal had not been tortured in the correct manner during slaughter. The cruelty of halal slaughter is a ticking animal rights time bomb, methinks he'd have been better keeping his trap shut.
