Think Darnell and what's going down in Sheffield at present. What you see you don't see its not worth the trouble.

Don't really know Sheffield and rarely go there so no idea what is going on there at the present - care to enlighten me please?

Idiots on the road.  Well, I have it straight from the horses' mouth as to the reason why idiots don't use dipped-headlights in dense fog.  "It's not DARK, I DON'T NEED LIGHTS ON!"  That idiot lives near me, Ive been considering moving home since.

I love your wit  ;D

Wining one battle doesn't win a war OC.

If you want to be proactive, find which working men voted Conservative and kick 'em in the goolies...  :))

Goolies Pete - does that mean balls?

Here you are Pete, from the Benefits and Work - I got it on Monday.

Housing benefit now in the firing line

Category: Latest news
Created: Monday, 16 November 2015 20:59
There are widespread reports in the media that George Osborne is now considering cuts to housing benefit as an alternative to big cuts in tax credits.

It is claimed that Osborne had been considering a raid on universal credit as a way of cutting the benefits bill after the House of Lords wrecked his plans to tax the working poor by slashing tax credits. However, Iain Duncan Smith threatened to resign if universal credit was hit and, bizarrely many may feel, instead of biting his hand off, Osborne has backed off and looked elsewhere for savings.

It now seems that he may hit housing benefit claimants instead, the majority of whom are also in work.

Claimants will have to wait until 25 November to find out precisely where the axe will fall.

Fun Stuff / A visit to the GP
« on: November 24, 2015, 01:03:15 PM »
A woman went to the doctor's where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out and ran  screaming as she went down the hall.

 An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story.

After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard.

"What the hell is the matter with you" the older doctor demanded.

 Mrs  Terry is 71 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?"

The younger doctor continued writing and without even looking up said,

"Does she still have  hiccups?"   


 ::) Probably not  :))

One law for the police, & another law for us ? ::)

Quote from the link

When Jamie saw the police van on the side of the road marked up with the dreaded high-vis yellow as he travelled through Longlevens in Gloucestershire, he realised people would be getting zapped.
But he also noticed the van was parked half on a pavement and half in the road, blocking the cycle lane.

Just to add - also blocking the PAVEMENT for pushchairs and wheelchair users - so doubly inconsiderate

I can understand Taxi drivers getting impatient and maybe Bus drivers but the rest of us should allow more time for our journey!

I agree with bransoj with some of the Disabled badge users thinking they have a right to park where they want - just 'because' they have the Blue Badge - they can be a right pain at times and tight with it as now they have to pay to park in many car parks.
Equally annoying are the parents in the Cineworld complex who use the Blue Badge area as a pick up/drop off for their kids who quite clearly have legs that can walk further afield!

As for the parking and taking up two spaces, can't the traffic wardens issue fines for that now?

Why the interest in Sheffield taxi's playing with fire Sheffield no place for amateur Police?

Why do you think Sheffield's Taxi drivers are any different to Taxi Drivers anywhere else? and why is it 'playing with fire'?

I think most taxi drivers will drive aggressively at times maybe due to pressures of getting passengers to their destinations, although I have never witnessed bus drivers do this, maybe because their vehicles are much larger - or is it in their 'brainwashing' err sorry training?

Lack of indicating seems now to be common practise.
