Politics / high court case against boris quashed

Oh what a surprise i am shocked and stunned (not) that the establishment in the guise of our so called independant judiciary have thrown out the case against boris for miconduct in public office, who on earth could possibly have ever predicted such an outcome, what the judiciary have done is to prove beyond doubt that it is ok lying to the public by any official body that choses to do so, is it any wonder that certain people who work for Chesterfield Borough Council can committ criminal acts in the full knowledge they will never be held to account, one rule for us and another for them, the system stinks.

Hello,

I am researching for a local project and was wondering if anyone has any information regarding seances that took place on land off Newbold Road in the late 1970s, which is now the site of St Mary's High School.

I have also been told about fatal car accidents on a former road through the school site, Water Lane, around a similar time. The road was 'stopped up' as a public right of way around 15 years ago. I can not find any information online about the accidents and I have searched in the local history section at the library to no avail.

General Discussion / Funeral plans
« Last post by Sorastro on June 03, 2019, 02:49:15 PM »
As with people of a certain age death comes soon enough without ghoulish adverts on telly asking you to shell out before you go.

Funeral plans, good or bad?
It sounds sensible but having checked out a few of these "companies" there are things you have to be aware of, for example cancellation fees, with some, if you decide to cancel AFTER the 28 day cooling off period you will be asked to pay, in some cases 20% of the original plan, this can run into the hundreds and for what. If you book a holiday say, and very near the time something happens and you need to cancel I understand receiving a penalty because wheels had been set in motion for you to go so therefore there is an amount of "undoing" to do but I can't see this here!
Believe it or not in some cases it depends on WHEN you kick your clogs whether they pay out the full amount {or anything at all} it's a minefield.
Plus it also looks like some are just a recruitment drive for sunlife. They all have limitations, they all have hidden costs, I've even come across a review for one of these companies from a funeral director no less and they basically said " Do yourself a favour and keep your money in the bank".

Unfortunately with these companies {as with the over 50's plans} you can't change to another company if they offer a better deal, like you can with utilities etc. once you've committed yourself your stuck with it.

Politics / NHS for sale as a result of brexit
« Last post by hifimad on June 03, 2019, 12:23:29 PM »
This is the latest news involving a no deal brexit, if we were to leave with no deal and we were to cosy up to the americans with a UK/USA trade deal the USA would want access to our NHS states the US Ambassador, this could lead to the partial or total privatisation of the NHS, i don't remember any mention of this from Farage, Mogg, Johnson or Gove during the brexit campaign, though having said that it is clear that the Tories are idealogically wedded to the idea of Privatising the NHS and farage himself has always been in favour of dismantling the NHS, there was so much dishonesty from the brexit supporting politicians during the brexit debate it is to be wondered wether their ideas on the NHS were lurking there in the background and left unstated so as not to frighten off potential leave voters, it is to be wondered if the leave vs remain vote would have been so close had voters been aware that the fragmentation of the NHS was a possible outcome, I THINK NOT.

i think that boris needs psychiatric help along with any other tory who puts their name forward to be tory leader, if we think May was given the poison chalice then i would suggest that the poison for a new leader after May leaves is a hundred times more potent, the EU and brexit is a leadership killer and i would think that anyone who wants the job at the moment should be imediatly disqualified on the grounds that ayone wanting the job is quite obviously off their head.
