  1. Animals are your friends - why do you eat them?
  2. Well perhaps someone could ask Paul Tobin who was the developer? Did he build something dodgy and just walk away with the profit from the development without a care for structure? I understand he creates a limited company to carry out development but then closes it down when the building is complete so he can walk away without any comeback To me it does seem wrong that we re picking up the bill for scaffolding to hold up a private persons development apparently indefinitely. Good old Paul was also the developer of the flats in Greyfriars Avenue by the river - should the owners of those be worried?
  3. Her days as a Councillor should be numbered. But it is not just her - Councillor Summers also came up with a load of unsubstantiated nonsense. What does not help though is shoddy journalism with the nationals just picking up and repeating the HT's report Polly has not as I understand it been working in a clinic for at least 20 years - so even if there was any truth to her supposition then it is ages old. And Summers, another duffer, probably like most of us heard some gossip in a pub and feels he can put it forward in a public meeting as fact With Councillors like these no wonder there is little governance in the County With reporters like those at the HT no wonder we have little scrutiny
  4. The Council have approved the construction of a new classroom block at Almeley Primary School I will give you three guesses as to which builder has been awarded the contract for up to £450,000.00 Builder A? Builder B? S C Joseph? Obviously I do not know who were the other bidders but would have thought that if they are local and always bid for Council contracts even they would start questioning how they are always outbid by S C J?
  5. We can all only marvel at the speed at which the new owner converted the upper floors to flats and the ground floor to shops. In the same vein it is great to see the progress up in High Town (if only the developers here here years ago) If anyone from the Council reads this - the lesson is have a plan and GET ON WITH IT. Don't wait years debating it and spending money for no good end
  6. The thing is as I understand it is that the BBLP have what is called a managed agency contract (or similar wording) which allows them to make the decisions on where they do work
  7. Would not people complain if they held meetings just for the sake of it? If there are no decisions to make why have a meeting?
  8. Hard Brexit - Yeah! All those businesses - BMW, Vauxhall, JLR, Ford, Nissan, JCB etc. moving to the continent to avoid disruption to their supply chain. Well in fact many of them have already started Who wants the jobs and taxes to provide for public services I am confident that we will do lots of business with many other countries in the world - Papua New Guinea is crying out for goods from us
  9. Appointment of Contractor for the remodeling and refurbishment of mobile accommodation on the Aylestone site to enable the Relocation of Broadlands Bright Sparks Pre-school Any idea who has been awarded this Council contract for work to cost up to £100,000.00 Yes you have got it - the lucky winner is S C Joseph It is remarkable how they win so many - I am sure they do not have inside knowledge. Does anyone approving these contracts ask detailed questions of those officers making the recommendations?
  10. The time for the election is fast approaching. The vast majority of comments in relation to the Council are negative - the conservatives are ruining the County, made up of tired old white men who know nothing, fat cat salaries etc. etc. Well perhaps now is the time for anyone who feels that they can do better and have business acumen to run such an organisation to consider putting themselves forward as candidates. You don't have to be in a political party to do so. PS - Count me out - too old and could not put up with getting calls in the middle of the night about a blocked drain!
  11. International Food is closed under anti social behaviour notice by West Mercia Police (may only be temporary)
