the place is a sheeite hole. 7m could be better spent in Rotherham in my opinon.

If you wish to discuss the history and politics of coal mining in the dearne valley, I'm more than happy to do so....

£7 million is nowhere near enough to put right the mess of the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire. Nor is £70 billion. The people of the area have been betrayed by Labour big time over many years. And discuss mining with you. Lol! Hardly the impartial observer.

Since 1979 labour had 13 years during which much regeneration of manvers and surrounding coal fields took place. In 37 years labour only had 13 yrs in power. Yet you swipe away everything thatch did and blame labour????

If you want to apportion blame look no further than per capita spending between the "north" and London and the south east. Out spent year, after year, after year.

Oh we have more than enough history to sneer at Americans for the next 10,000 years.

Why the hell does Adobe Acrobat Reader need to reboot my system after updating itself? What core system files is it updating and why given it's just a document viewing tool.

And why does the bloody update option say "Adobe Reader needs to reboot to apply updates" but when clicked it actually reboots the entire system.

Nope, we have to use a year's old and compromised version of Java to make sure that our NHS England web apps work. They were hard coded to check for certain versions and won't work outside of that range.

People driving at 80+mph in 20 yard fog deserve jail time.

People driving at 20mph with full foglights when there is a light mist.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

A fairly common problem across a range of, so called, modern web based systems. It can get really complicated when you have a number of systems deployed across an organisation each with its own specific needs.

People who stop dead in shop doorways. Either move in or out but don't "park" right in everybody else's way.

You'd think the Canadians would be better prepared.

Are Nissan Micras speed limited to 25MPH?

Why is there always one in front of me if I have a timed appointment?

The Montreal video was amazing!  Whoever was filming it from the building opposite must have been astounded, especially when the gritter joined in.

They are limited to 25 mph when you are behind them, and limited to 70 mph when they are behind you.

There was one in front of me acting as 40mph speed monitor for the road. The fog had completely lifted and it was long distance clarity yet he refused to pull over. We then had a blue light ambulance and he STILL refused to pull over. The ambulance had to overtake in the slow lane to get round.

Amber Rudd sound bite on Radio 2 news item and this stalkers law for "vulnerable women". At least some news sites don't actually quote that but this 'all men are rapists' implication really does bug me.

I think it's fair to say that most victims of stalking will be women. But to suggest its only women who need protection from stalkers is very very wrong. Women can be absolute phsycos.
