  1. That one is horrific - 12 rooms, reminds me of a factory farm. Lots of points don't comply with Building Regs either(not that that stops Planning).
  2. Rather pointless as some of them may be out of a job in less than 2 months time! I hear Harlow isn't standing again anyway.
  3. The question about the Kinnock's (and numerous other eurocrats) must be what have they achieved over 15 years that merits being paid such colossal amounts of public money?
  4. Lost publicity opportunity for Herefordshire by holding the PR presentation in Malvern.
  5. All valid points he makes, what a monumental mess. The old two and half party political system has to be in its death throes as a result of this - no one has any confidence in, or respect for, politicians any more, at local level or national level. We need a benevolent dictator ...
  6. Truly mind boggling amounts of money. Yet, the more we pay, the less we seem to get. Never has the County, and the City in particular, looked so scruffy, dirty, run down, graffitied, pot holed and full of litter and weeds.
  7. Ex MP and part time dancer Ed Balls, who lost his seat in 2015.
  8. Not as much as that propping up the rear of Jacobs Court in Commercial Road - we've been paying for that for years (10?) since the developer went bust (didn't stop him developing elsewhere in Hereford though) leaving behind an unsafe extension. I recall some while ago it was £11k a year?
  9. I would have thought a (former) councillor would at least have the correct election date to hand - Thursday 2 May - or is something else coming on 19 May?!
  10. They've made a start, changing a perfectly good green sign for an orange one. Wonder how many meetings that took.
  11. Blueschool House is in her ward and she supported the scheme at planning. She has been uncharacteristically silent on the subsequent ongoing and unresolved scandal of the £1m/100% overspend. She is one of many who have long overstayed their welcome, such as it was, and we can only hope that 2 May is her last day in the job. Unfortunately, the Council is so tainted by mis-management and corruption that the chances of decent up standing citizens coming forward to serve their community must be rather compromised.
  12. Most if not all of our Council tips are now privately run as part of the 25 year integrated waste management PFI contract with Worcestershire County Council and Spanish owned Urbaser.
  13. Urbaser are Spanish owned, so tens of millions of pounds of UK council tax payers money is leaving the country instead of being put back into the local economy, much as happened with the disastrous Amey contract Herefordshire Council took on, Amey being a subsidiary of Spanish company Ferrovial. I'm not sure Herefordshire Council are involved in the Javelin Park facility in Gloucester, but they certainly are up to their necks (in debt) to the PFI Severn Waste one at Evesham (where Herefordshire waste is driven to) and the 25 year integrated waste management PFI contract with Worcestershire County Council (both schemes run by, you guessed, Urbaser). Are Councillors getting cheap holidays in the sun?
  14. I see that Architype have been bumped off the former Boys Home scheme next door in favour of Quattro Design Architects of Gloucester, presumably to 'value engineer' it. There is some hope then that this absurd manifestation will not go ahead, especially as September is barely 9 months away and there is no sign of any work starting on site. Given they're no requisitioning the Robert Owen buildings, will it even be needed, in the short term at least?
  15. Priority Space Ltd comprises three chartered surveyors with 66 directorships between them but only £51 of capital and reserves and £21k of assets to front a £6m development ... you really HAVE to ask how much due diligence has been done by our very expensive council officers!
