Oh, Joy!

We, the good citizens of Sheffield and South Yorkshire, are to be treated this weekend; the LibDem Conference is coming to town!
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-12711060
The policing units are only spending a couple of million, what a bargain!
It's a personal opinion, but this man and his party are a lost cause. Why should anybody have to put up with this charade?  Crazy

Re: Oh, Joy!

On BBC Question Time last night it was stated that the policing will cost £2M.  Perhaps the LibDems should be asked to pay the bill. Undecided

Re: Oh, Joy!

Can we immediately scotch all rumours that Plusnet will be sponsoring the conference with free tee shirts for the delegates.
Will the phone box they'll be using be near to Plusnet towers  Wink

@ Nadger PN Towers is within 2 minutes walk of the conference centre. The "Ring of Steel" around the centre won't include them, but staff may be severely inconvenienced in their commute to work. Fortunately, it's a weekend!

Don't hold your breath while waiting for an answer...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

All the political parties (Labour were well known for it) use a rent-a-crowd of loyal looking supporters, so its bound to look good and well attended on the news.

Re: Oh, Joy!

These politicians have got no insight at all into what's going on, either that or they are taking the P***
Taxes are going up, retirement age is going up, pensions are going down and the number of people out of work is on the increase.
I wonder how people feel when they see money squandered like this !

Re: Oh, Joy!

They seem to live in a parallel universe.
They inherited a major deficit and every penny should be looked at to see if it really is necessary.  £2M could be better spent.
