Decision notice. The Bullying of Disabled Council Staff

29 Aug 2014

Posted by WirralPC in Open Forum

Hello All,

 

I'm Paul Cardin from Wirral.  Here's a decision notice from the ICO referring to bullying of disabled people and pay offs in public money to Herefordshire County Council staff.  I believe a number of senior people have been encouraged to depart the council.

 

The ICO for their part are standing behind the council, and appear to be insisting that the disabled persons affected have been consulted, and don't want their data released or their personal privacy breached.  Is this true?  Some local people out there might know different.

 

This DN can be challenged and I believe the deadline is 10th September, if my maths is correct.

 

If it's going to be challenged, it needs to be QUICK !  My contact details should be relatively easy to track down with a search engine.

Tony Johnson Tells H & W Radio Building On Football G...

22 Oct 2014

Posted by chrisbull in Open Forum

Tony Johnson was asked today on radio what was going to happen to Hereford United in the future and he said he did not care who owned the leases and that the barrister at mondays court hearing in London had tried to get the club closed down and when questioned on development at the ground he made it clear both ends will be developed hence no future for Hereford United remember me over 18 months ago making a statement the council want to move the ground well i was right the council has wanted to develop that area for over 20 years remember the chairman Peter Hill he tried hard when he sold the leases to developers now you will soon see some big back handers going on do not kid yourself Hereford council has been doing it for years people like Tony johnson make me sick they spin one story telling you they support the club and then turn things around when it suits them this is now the end of football at edgar street when on December 1st the next appearance at the high court will seal the fate of a football club that has put Hereford on the map and the council could not give a damn private companies are running this county not people for the county i suggest we all vote UKIP at least we will get a response to the pertinent questions regarding expenses and private company costs acting for the council.

Whitehouse Pub

Yesterday

Posted by dippyhippy in Tupsley

Does the Tupsley Community Group now own the old "Whitehouse Pub" up at Whittern Way?? Or is it owned by some other group??

 

I ask, because it is an absolute eye sore....a magnet for vandalism and appears to have been empty for months if not years with no clear plan for what it's future holds. I had a conversation today the gist of which was the good folks who run The Cock Of Tupsley very successfully, have enquired about buying it, as they would like to re open it, and run it as an extension to their thriving business.

 

No. Was the answer. Apparently just one person gets to say "No". No committee meeting, no vote, just one persons say so.(Who does that remind you of???)

 

So whoever does own this.....either get it tidied up, and open....or let someone else do it!!!

 

Letting it fall into an even greater state of disrepair should not be an option!

Council force repossession and take control of HUFC grounds

Today

Posted by Biomech in Open Forum

http://www.herefordt...f_Edgar_Street/

 

Do who didn't see this coming? It's amazing how untransparent this council is yet everyone can see right through them.

 

Nothing but lies, deceit and plotting behind the scenes at EVERY SINGLE turn.

 

With November 5th coming up, I think someone needs to go and burn that ******* place to the ground. Nowhere have I seen so much ineptitude, lying, secrecy and ripping off of the public.

 

Literally putting the CON into Conservatives.

Fraudulent banks, utility companies and corrupt courts

11 Jun 2014

Posted by megilleland in Open Forum
Support For Guy Taylor Needed
 
On today's UK Column News - https://www.youtube....h?v=n1v_ntEj7qs - Guy Taylor gave an update on his continuing battle with fraudulent banks, utility companies and corrupt courts.
 
To give a little background, Guy's fight began when a Barclays Bank manager allegedly created a fraudulent loan in Guy's name using a forged signature. Details of this can be seen in an episode of our documentary series Insight which can be viewed here: https://www.youtube....h?v=ehklozL6b90
 
Recently events came to a head when Guy had Bodenham Manor, a property bought by his father for cash and for which there is no outstanding debt, stolen from him when bailiffs, supported by 50 or more police evicted him and his tenants from the property. 
 
Guy has demonstrated that all this has happened on the basis of fraudulent documents, and as he showed on the UK Column News today, he has confirmation from the court where the latest documents were apparently issued from that they did not issue them and no hearing took place there.
 
Now they are attempting to steal his own home, on which, again, there is no outstanding debt.
 
So we are asking everyone who can possibly do it to come to Guy's home on Tuesday to support Guy in his efforts to see off this unlawful intimidation. We need as many people on site as possible equipped with cameras, video cameras and notebooks to record events as they happen. 
 
The eviction is due to start at 11am on Tuesday the 17th June 2014 at Pear Tree Farm, Carey, Hereford HR2 6NG.
 
We hope to see you there, but whether you can get there or not, please pass this to as many people as possible, and keep an eye on our lunchtime news programmes for updates.

Traffic Lights Campaign - Part -Time Lights 7pm-7am

18 Apr 2014

Posted by Colin James in Open Forum

I have now implemented phase II of our traffic lights campaign and that is in the form of a petition from the very start!

 

[Please note that this is totally separate to our lights out campaign. This petition deals only with the traffic lights at night]

part-time-traffic-signals.jpg

 

We would like both the Highways Agency and Herefordshire Council to allow the traffic lights at the junctions
where the A465 meets the A49 (Asda roundabout/junction) and
where the A49 meets the A438 Newmarket St (Old Market roundabout/junction)
to become part-time signals during non peak times from 7pm-7am
with exception to the pedestrian crossings which would still be in operation for the safety of pedestrians.
 
All of these traffic lights are relatively pointless during off peak times and often motorists become frustrated and impatient while being forced to sit at red lights, this can often be at 2am when there are clearly no other vehicles in sight!
 
By signing our petition you are in strong favour of these signals being changed to PART-TIME status from 7pm-7am

 

Please read the petition and you can offer your support by simply signing it.

New Black Bins, Max 4 Bags a Fortnight - f*** Off

04 Aug 2014

Posted by Biomech in Open Forum

In the Hereford Times this week(?) there's a piece on the new black bins that will be delivered and a picture of some **** councillor.

It states - and is corroborated on the council website*, that these black wheelie bins must;

 

Not exceed 4 black bags

Each black bag to not exceed 15kg

Each bag should not exceed 410 x 760 x 915mm

 

Are you having a ******* laugh? Can we get some councillor's input on this please? Maybe the bellend in the paper who thinks this is a good idea.

4 black bags per FORTNIGHT, some families have that per week, this is absolutely ridiculous.

 

And let me guess, if we exceed the "limits" you'll leave the rubbish on our doorstep with a note, leaving it for 4 weeks just to refuse it again because now it's double.

 

I tell you what, my rubbish goes in my bin, I pay you pricks to collect it, if you refuse to collect it, I'll be making missed rubbish calls to get you back out and that's going to start to cost you a hell of a lot more.

 

Also, as I never had response to this before, explain to me what's going to happen as central government are planning to make fortnightly collections illegal.

Left Bank Sold to "Local" Family

16 Jan 2014

Posted by Biomech in Open Forum

So reports the Hereford Times Here

 

I "" local because I don't know how local or who they are - according to the Knorr gravy advert, 70 miles away is "local" :P

 

Anyway, risky business, but well done to them for having the balls to invest in a side of the city that the council has left to squander.

Here's hoping they get the work done swiftly and have some nice things back up and running. Personally, I think the resturaunt and bars were fantastic, ideal for the locality and, from an investment and development point of view, a good cheap bet.

Is it possible to post too much???

25 Jun 2014

Posted by dippyhippy in Open Forum

This is the question!

 

We all know that Our Good King Bobby has retired from blogging....exhausted by his efforts over the past few years!

 

We've all suffered bouts of "The Tappers" over the years, but is it really possible to post too much??

 

In seven months I've clocked up nigh on 1,100 posts. Beyond ridiculous!

 

This really is a heartfelt plea, to all those who have signed up in the last few months, and indeed, those who have been members for years,(You know who you are...you log in regularly!!) to post your thoughts. Share with the group!

 

This forum is being read by many. The next 12 months are crucial. We want our voice to be heard, but to keep a forum like this vibrant, we need as many views as possible.

 

Too often, there are only a dozen or so who post regularly.....so I ask you politely....Get Involved! Get Busy! and Get Posting!!

18 Aug 2012

Posted by Colin James in The Oval

I was at the post office early this morning and noticed these WEEDS! I have no words...
ovalweeds.jpg

How tall? how long they been here?

What I find very strange is that thousands of pounds of public money is spent on

'Brand New Shiny Notice Boards' (That I am sure nobody reads) yet, within only 4 metres of one of these notice boards we have MASSIVE weeds that nobody has botherd to have removed? Hmmm oh well, maybe it's just me...

Getting Old!

17 Oct 2014

Posted by bobby47 in Open Forum
I've absolutely no problem with the ageing process. I'm more than happy to be the age that I am and frankly, I wouldn't want it any other way.
The fact that I'll never see my testicles again is of no concern to me. As my waist size gradually catches up with my years upon Earth I know that unless I take the trouble to stand above a mirror my testicles will never be seen by my eyes ever again. I'm comfortable with that.
I'm also content knowing that I talk to myself and have done for years. Truthfully, I enjoy talking to me. I find myself to be a very interesting character and given the choice I'd rather It be me than some other fool who you've no wish to talk to down the battle cruiser.
Whether its my thinning hair, an ability to repeat myself over and over again until someone says, 'we've heard that before' or that when I gaze into the mirror to shave I no longer recognize the man I once was, I couldn't care less. I'm happy getting old.
What does bloody bother me is humming. Yes! Humming. I wake up humming, i spend my day humming and I've absolutely no control over it. Worse still, its Delilah! This song, originally gifted to us by Tom bloody Jones is a melody strongly associated with men who get drunk and for no apparent reason, climb upon a table in the pub and start singing it. This is the tune I hum over and over again.
It's bloody relentless. I'm humming the blasted tune now!
Couple of weeks ago I was sat in the fourth row at The London Palladium listening to bloody Nadine Coyle, her of Girls Aloud, who was appearing on the Michael Flattley production, Lord of the Dance. Dangerous Games. While she was slaughtering some melodic ballad I was humming Delilah.
Course, not only did everyone around me here my senile humming, bloody Coyle did as well. As she gradually raised her tones to follow the progression of chords in the song, she glanced down at me, threw me a glare which moreorless said, 'I'm going to jump off this stage and crack your skull if you give me one more note from Delilah'.
Course, whilst no words were exchanged, I gave her a look didn't I. I moreorless said, ' just you bloody try it Coyle. Leave that stage and attack me with your hand held microphone and I will defend myself'.
And, on the subject of Girls a bloody Loud, if bloody Cheryl Cole or whatever her name is nowadays, delivers me more tears on the Xfactor I'm for turning the tele over. She's got that Scarey bloody Spice doing it as well. They're trying to outcry oneanother. It's a bloody disgrace to light entertainment.
Bloody Scarey Spice my right nut! There's nothing Scarey about her. If she wants to meet Scarey she should pop down the Commercial for an half and hear the list of girls we'd like to kiss. That'd scare her. That'd make her think that perhaps she ain't as Scarey as she claims to be.
Anyway, I'm content getting old!

Vandalised picnic benches

Did they respond with a date? A month on from my last cycle ride past these vandalised benches and, guess what? Nothing done. Why am I not surprised. In fact more pieces have been removed.
