Rhetorical question surely?

As to lack of progress, dare we whisper contractors, sub contractors and cash flow?

Bit of a pessimistic view I admit, but it does look a shambles, even for a building site it is in shit order. As for activity I've seen more when I drive past motorway carriageway repairs where activity is so slow it is invisible to the human eye. I'm tempted to have an 'Ives moment' as I look at the deeply attractive and retail friendly safety fencing.

The regeneration is the construction industries version of the dog whistle, I should consult a spaniel to get their view of progress to date.

Mmmm, lapdogs.....

Just trying to find some info on someone and came up with this, bit out of date, but if you missed it the first time:

Quote from: Rod Bluh
"I don't tell lies...."

...he said, the pitch of his voice rising noticably.

Well, he probably had just told one!

Now go and have a look at the others on that page.

Others, there are others.  Oh yes.

A real challenge for Geoff I think.

"I don't tell lies"

Only challenge there is finding a seat strong enough and an editor brave enough to accurately publish what I'd said.

Neither of which exist in swindon.

In town to day I overheard a conversation over the loss of the canopy on that ship-like thing outside Debenham's and Tesco. I don't know what made me say it, but I said, "perhaps they're putting up a christmas tree with Rod Bluh on top". Quick as a flash, the punter being served, snaps back: "hopefully they'' put tree trunk where the sun doesn't shine." Symptomatic of how attitudes to the Council and its leader are evolving?

Actually, I think he came across pretty well. I was cringing a little at the 'appropriateness' of some of the questions - but I noted that he answered the key one directly and honestly.

Couldn't stand the cod heavy metal soundtrack though!!!

Since when have you needed any help doctoring a video and publishing it here yourself?

In his parting speech at the recent SSP Conference Rod said we needed more videos for the presentations - that caused me to a very unladylike snigger.  I'm sure we could find him a few - aye - aye. :azn:

I always thought that was when a fairy lost her wings?

Tobes: if you look at the other videos on that page they are all asked the same questions and as most of those are STFC players and visiting stars, I can see why they were not really appropriate for those who run our town. Maybe a polite no thank you would have been better.
