Wednesday December 4 2013


Radley Barnsley Radley Barnsley


HANDBAG designer Radley has named one its new bags Barnsley after visiting the town.

The firm said its design team embarked on a series of trips to different parts of the UK in search of inspiration each season.

A spokesman said the Barnsley collection was originally conceived after thought was given to the north of England's heritage of craftsmanship and textiles production.

He said: "We’re proud to be inspired by Britain’s heritage of craftsmanship and design. The town of Barnsley has a rich history in manufacturing from textiles to glassware and this informed the original design."

The Barnsley bag comes in three different styles and two sizes and a variety of colours, ranging in price from £169 to £249.

Please take a second to check the spelling of your post before hitting 'post'. It hurts my head trying to read your mess.

Is it a Netto carrier bag? A dog-shit bag? Or a tenner-bag of Smack?

Nice one Radley, honouring our fine town, the town of my birth, the town of my team.
That's how you say thank you, without all the piss and moaning, bloody hell just be happy, we're getting a positive not a negative for a change.

Barnsley is a shit hole lived here all mi life n it's never got any better not never will that my opinion any ways

Reply Posted by AlanB on Sunday December 8 2013 at 22:45
Yes and it always will be while people like you have that shocking attitude. Do all decent Barnsley people a favour and move elsewhere.

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Friday December 6 2013 at 00:34
@posh - Now dear. My house in Maida Vale is worth £450,000.

Reply Posted by posh on Saturday December 7 2013 at 21:53
Well Kilkenny,there's only you enquired about its pockets,so you must be tempted!

Reply Posted by AlanB on Sunday December 8 2013 at 22:47
Where do you really live, is it Kendray?

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Friday December 6 2013 at 08:29
I now present the Radley Backward Bag, oh sorry I meant the Radley Barnsley Bag!

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Friday December 6 2013 at 08:50
@lauren - I know it is LOL posting in your name. LOL - I live in a cardboard box? Yeah. Now go back to your Grimethorpe council house.

You really have a strong kind of abusive words from a STRONG WOMEN.dosen;t look like that to me,a women living a very sad and deeply regretful life..

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Friday December 6 2013 at 11:18
My only regret is not leaving Barnsley sooner.

Reply Posted by AlanB on Sunday December 8 2013 at 22:48
Yes, it's a great pity that you did not move earlier.

Reply Posted by TJ on Friday December 6 2013 at 11:46
And you are sorely missed. Lots of people leave the town and move to London and other places. They don't feel the need to come on here having a go, why the bitterness?

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Friday December 6 2013 at 12:13
TJ - I am not bitter. Idiots on here post in my name. You can easily see their posts though. The level of literacy is shocking.

No wonder tha moved to London tha far too thick Barnsley n that's sayin sumat

Reply Posted by MBC on Saturday December 7 2013 at 16:24
Thank you Radley for finding inspiration to name a bag after our wonderful town. I will probably buy one when I am ready for a new bag.
To the Barnsley haters it's simple... Just move out and help make the town a better place x

kenny the keyboard warrior hide behind your screen and slag barnsley off you say you dont care for the place but your name and you bragging about what you say you have keep popping up on here you probs a smackrat who lives on the jam roll and has to comment on here because nobody gives a toss what you say in the real world get a grip you fraggle

Reply Posted by bagoff on Saturday December 7 2013 at 16:31
Who the heck can afford a bag made by RADLEY,better bags in primani

Reply Posted by Toby Spike on Saturday December 7 2013 at 16:34
For all you people who live and Barnsley and class it as a shithole well I could take you to parts of Sheffield and Leeds which make it look like Monaco. The grass is not always greener. I've live here all my life and am proud to say I can walk anywhere without fear of been stabbed or shot. Last time I went to London I would have been physically scared to walk through the place I drove through. When a top designer brings good PR and a positive spin on Barnsley get behind it as we don't get it very often. If your not happy living in Barnsley no one makes you stay.

Reply Posted by LOL on Saturday December 7 2013 at 16:41
GET BEHIND IT.ITS A BLOODY BAG WHICH IS WORTH ABOUT £20 BUT SELLING FOR £170 PLUS.COULD HAVE PUT MONEY INTO BARNSLEY WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.WERE IN A RECESSION SO NO TO THE BAG

Reply Posted by MBC on Saturday December 7 2013 at 16:42
Well said Toby.

Reply Posted by Toby Spike on Saturday December 7 2013 at 17:08
Have you ever heard the term "any publicity is good publicity"? Regardless if you buy the bag or not Radley is a big name nationally with clout. Publicity like this sticks in the back of the mind of other investors or companies who may be looking where to come start up a business or expand. If you can build up a positive spin and get more companies like this to see beyond Barnsley's typical stereotype you are on a winner. Someone has to design the bag and manufacture it and sell it, someone has to build and fit out the units and shops which all = jobs

dream on.barnsley a shithole..only bags there sell is black bags for all the rubbish the druggies/alcos/homeless leave behind.wake up and smell the coffee

Reply Posted by Jen on Saturday December 7 2013 at 17:30
Why can't any of you spell or have any working use of grammer? Didn't you go to school or were you too busy skiving off? Maybe try adult learning courses so you can get jobs that pay well enough to buy a Radley bag. Youre just so eaten up with bitterness, resentment and jealousy I'm surprised you bother getting up in the morning. Its no wonder the soft southern shites have a low opinion of 'the North' ! And yes, I come from Barnsley and am happy to tell anyone.

Dear "to jen above" I presume you meant to use the word "as" and not "has" when you said "has your face is burning..."

Nugget.

Me@ read my post correctly.i wasn;t on about my grammar and I didn.t state other peoples spelling was wrong,Jen made a statement pulling people grammar down,so keep your nose out you fool.

Reply Posted by Me on Saturday December 7 2013 at 18:30
Dear "To Jen Above", you were slating Jen for making a spelling mistake. She did not make a grammatical error. You then made a howler of an error whilst taking the piss out of her. Now, get yourself back to primary school to learn the difference between "as" and "has".

Reply Posted by me and jen on Saturday December 7 2013 at 18:41
I think Me and Jen are the same trolls.getting on at other peoples grammar.having made themselves look fools.

I see people have been posting in my name again. It is getting tiresome. It usually happens when I am on the track.

Where are your wives? Let me answer. They are sat on the sofa stuffing down Iceland chicken nuggets whilst juggling baby Jayden on their knee.

Reply Posted by sid on Wednesday December 11 2013 at 09:57
Kilkenny where the hell did you live in Barnsley? You have a very different view of our town than I have! I have never been in an Iceland....but so what?....I know not one person called jayden....but so what?...never eaten a chicken nugget...so what? You obviously came from a deprived part of our town,but from your other posts its apparent you have just moved to another but in London! You mention many things in your posts that I find abhorant regarding your area! I suggest you get back on your track (we have many of those! Oh! Yesssireebob we do) and jog on to Never never Land,where hopefully as its panto time,there will be a big fat crocodile waiting to eat you. You live in a land of make believe you silly old dame.

You idiot kilkenny! You have no idea where I live, and let me inform you,it is hard worked for and beautiful. What panto has 3000 pigs you fool? I'm so happy that you have gone to live in scruffy,stinky,violent London! Please stay there.8:))

@Lauren - now I get that you are a bit backward but calling somebody a 'mongrel' is this day and age is not acceptable.

Now go and watch Jeremy Kyle. You might recognise some family members.

Sid - that wasn't me posting above. Obviously LOL has been busy again. I wish he would get a job.
