Settle & Carlisle

I'm quite surprised that Virgin are replacing trains between Preston and Carlisle by buses and not by diverting the trains by the S & C . Although it would take a bit longer, it would be better than having to heard people onto a bus. I guess it has something to do with not having […]

Crash

Oh dear. A train has come off the rails and turned over in Cumbria tonight. So far, it look like there are no fatalities. If this continues to be the case, this is good news. We will have to wait and see.

WHY?

Not content to be classed as being one of the worst places in the country to live, having the worst council and having one of the most incompetent county councils, now the Staffordshire Ambulance Service is to merge with the West Midlands one.

County Council Strikes Again

Well Staffs County Council are showing their true colours again as they now want to close all of their old people’s care homes in 2008. I think they are determined to upset as many people as possible. I’m sure my County Councillor won’t get off his arse to do something to stop this. Interesting that […]
