Politics / Terrorist Incidents
« on: June 04, 2017, 12:15:11 AM »
Why are we allowing known ( not sure yet) terrorists killing innocents on the streets of London?
How do we stop this?
It's always easy targets - children or pedestrians going about their normal lives.
Call me a racist if you want but there is an element within our borders who clearly are quite happy to kill us.
I'm not happy with this - so how do we resolve this problem which is clearly organised prior to execution?

Politics / Nice - France terrorist attack on Bastille Day
« on: July 15, 2016, 12:02:46 AM »
The atrocity that has just taken place with up to 60 or more lives taken in Nice is absolutely terrible and unforgivable.
My thoughts are with the families and friends of the bereaved on what should have been a day of celebration (Bastille Day).
I know we are leaving the EU - but the distance between us and France is no wider than the English Channel and never will be. Therefore our connections and unity as fellow european citizens should be cemented.
I'm not politicising this in any way - I purely have sympathy with the affected persons.
Our sympathies are with you tonight mes amies :( :(

Politics / European Union - Get us out of the EU stranglehold.
« on: January 22, 2016, 04:43:17 PM »
The UK is forced to make massive financial contribution to an unelected EU tribunal with powers over and above our own parliament. Illegal immigration for one is a huge problem not just for us - look at Germany for example. Integration socially with a lot of immigrants is failing because they seemingly wish to impose their draconian ways into our society. Germany again New Years day - all the women who were sexually assaulted - they think it's acceptable behaviour, Do we want this here?
The need to restore UK choice in what we do and accept day to day is paramount. Trade, Welfare,Pensions, Health Care, Immigration policy etc should all be within OUR control, and not governed by bureaucrats in Brussels.
If you are interested I have started a campaign via 38 Degrees which you can sign.

Chesterfield Discussion / Chesterfield F.C
« on: January 03, 2016, 06:13:55 PM »
Well done Danny in your first proper match in charge for Chesterfield F.C.!
We expected a tough game - but to run out 7-1 winners was outstanding to say the least.
Confidence in the players own abilities seems to have been instantly restored - just shows what a change in manager can do.
Danny has lived in Chesterfield for last 30 years or so, and had a successful spell in the team as a player when he was younger.
I reckon he will be the best manager we have had in a very long time - time will tell of course, but let's hope I'm right.
COYB!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             (y)

Chesterfield Discussion / Somerset House Calow
« on: May 27, 2015, 07:14:27 PM »
It seems Tesco have won. Enterprise Inns have decided to lease the Somerset (& the Crispin @ Ashgate) to Tesco.
Enterprise Inns refused to finance cooked food sales in the pub, so it has struggled ever since.A deliberate refusal to invest in a once popular pub so that they can get a guaranteed income elsewhere.
It seems Enterprise Inns also refused to sell the pub to a couple of interested buyers who wanted to make a go of it.
Makes you wonder why?
I have no proof, but is there a business connection between Tesco & Enterprise Inns?
It seems strange that they wouldn't sell it outright to an independant purchaser. Tesco still (assuming they will eventually want to turn it into a retail outlet) have to overcome the local authority objections from their original planning request, which were quite large if memory serves me right.

Chesterfield Discussion / CAGE Calow
« on: January 07, 2015, 08:36:26 PM »
Seven Star Natural Gas (Alkane) have launched an appeal against the ruling to not allow drilling down Dark Lane in Calow to extract natural gas. I have the support of Dennis Skinner M.P. who has written to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (Mr Eric Pickles), in the strongest possible terms.
If you would like to support us you can do by.
or e-mail Mr Dennis Skinner on
The more the merrier.
We don't want a flame stack
We live on at best, a Victorian Rd
Pollution from diesel engines converting gas to electricity 24/7 for 15 years or more
Furthermore, our house prices in value will diminish dramatically

This is a wholly unsubstantiated industry with no background success or guarantee against failure - so close to houses too. We dont want subsidence or gas seepage in our houses, or damage to the underground water table.

Thanks for looking
