  1. The climate change industry isn't happy at the prospect of having to take its hands out of Uncle Sams bottomless pockets, what's the point of inventing a lucrative new worldwide religion if there's no lucre...
  2. I think that you're right about the Old Packet House, the writing was on the wall when unseen hands left the upstairs windows open for a year or two, demolition by neglect is slow but it always gets there.
  3. I believe it's still going forward in spite of the Chicken Littles objections, a fast response power unit too, you're probably in a better position to know than I am Geoff. A proposed solar farm up Great Sankey way got the chop I hear, the Nimbies again.
  4. The usual suspects reared up when a solar farm was proposed at Johnsons Lane on the Warrington/Widnes border, the land having been used since 1920 as a closed gate chemical tip... Save our area of outstanding natural toxic waste, you couldn't make it up.
  5. Perhaps 'local issues' would have been more appropriate but the post wouldn't have scanned, but micro issues; yes indeed, intentionally muddying the water with these specifically local issues during a General Election campaign is just a NuMilitant ruse to divert attention away from the total unsuitability of the doddering old communist they support for the role of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. I'm no fan of May and I'm also aware that she didn't back Brexit in the first place, but as the most hard nosed of the lot of them and with Article 50 triggered I think it's a case of right time right place for her.
  6. There are a lot of these micro issues which would be more appropriate for local election campaigning being dragged out, this is a General Election to decide who runs the UK during the difficult next few years, after all.
  7. Somebody was probably whiling away their tedious hours at work by downloading pictures of amusing cats.
  8. All is not lost Obs, I believe that Ms Le Pens campaign has just received a boost...Obama has urged the French to support Macron!
  9. If Ms Le Pen wins the French elections on Sunday the EU will have more to worry about than rooting through Britain's pockets, a Frexit and the demise of the whole rotten outfit could be on the cards.
  10. After their last stunt hit the national press, if Mr Keane and the Penketh Junta had an ounce of political sense they'd have kept their heads down for a bit, since they have demonstrated that they just aren't capable of that, I suspect that word has come down from a lot higher up the Labour Party food chain.
  11. I suggest a third possibility, that they'll embrace absolutely anything with the word 'city' in it, this being in support of their bid for city status for the town, and all the lovely cash that would come with it. Follow the money.
  12. The real losers will be the devoted Labour supporters who are already 'employed by the state' for 365 days a year, will nobody think of the afternoon drinkers and the full time mummies?
  13. With Corbyn generally considered as a dead man walking, If I was a prospective candidate I'd be edging away from him.
  14. We'll see the councils true position on culture in the town the day after the CoC is awarded elsewhere, we'll hear no more about statues and suchlike, bank on it.
  15. Sadly, I believe that many of the towns scrag ends would much rather lob their unwanted items over the back wall than blow £33.34 of their beer and fag money on arranging to have it taken away.
