We're the people who gave this award blind, deaf and dumb? They are having a laugh. Barnsley is being run into the ground by BMBC! Remember all this tripe at the next election.

Who they trying to convince us or themselves? The top brass need to take a look at the coat of arms. It says Spectemur Agendo - meaning -let us be judged by our acts. Not some tinpot bought award. Fooling no one

Errr - How much did they pay ? not read anything about them buying it anywhere. did you just make that up ?

Reply Posted by Gavelar on Sunday October 2 2016 at 19:39
Errr entering awards costs money, not made up just common knowledge really.

Reply Posted by turbo on Monday October 3 2016 at 17:02
Errr so they didn't buy it then, they paid an entry fee - as i said .. you made it up ! you said they'd bought it !

Reply Posted by Matt on Friday September 30 2016 at 20:49
What a predictably negative response. BMBC are trying to improve things and deserve recognition. How about backing their efforts rather than a barrage of negativity?

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 05:04
A sensible comment Matt.

Reply Posted by boo on Friday September 30 2016 at 21:26
I think this probably says more about the state of other councils and how they are coping with Central Governments austerity measures

Reply Posted by PRD on Friday September 30 2016 at 21:52
well said Matt couldn't have put it better myself. too many doom and gloom people in Barnsley. yes we do have our fair share of smack heads but no more than any other town or city in the country. some people just like to have a good moan.

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 22:30
I agree PRD .. Not one of the moaners have mentioned how they would make things better.If they're so clever lets be hearing from some of them on this forum as to how and what BMBC should be doing in their opinion.. Bet the silence is deafening !

Moaners of the year

Why can't you celebrate success

It may not be perfect but considering the cuts they have had to deal with its a miracle ANY services are being maintained let alone put performing tory councils that have not had any cuts.


Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 05:08
Geoff, it's not really true that tory councils haven't had any cuts, they've had them but not as bad as the money wasting, non job creating labour councils .

Reply Posted by Royboy on Saturday October 1 2016 at 10:51
celebrate success, what planet are you from Geoff. only success is for the council to have YET a free lunch on US the tax payer.

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 19:13
You're at it again Royboy .. And your evidence that they had a free lunch on " us the tax payer " is ?? You just make things up .. are you an habitual liar ?

Reply Posted by Dwayne dibbly on Saturday October 1 2016 at 00:17
There's other authorities that have done more to kill their town then Barnsley,

Wow no wonder the nation is so screwed up

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 05:10
You had to check your calendar ? Wow,i'll have a glass of what he's on,must be good stuff.

Reply Posted by Royboy on Saturday October 1 2016 at 10:48

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 19:10

stop trolling rita

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 22:24
Sorry, who ever you are that's scared to leave you're proper name ( most likely the retarded Royboy ).. Your poor grammar and spelling proves that you're very poorly educated and probably without a job .. Why don't you apply for a job on the council .. i'm sure there are plenty of vacancies for bright people like you. Just hope that they don't have a spelling test in the application process .. you'd fail miserably owd cock .

Reply Posted by Rita on Saturday October 1 2016 at 22:34
It's not a problem being trolled by a half wit .. anybody with even a very low IQ can see that the poor lads thick ..

Reply Posted by Carl on Saturday October 1 2016 at 12:07
I'm one of the first to usually stand up and lambast BMBC... we have to look and the "bigger" things they have given us to allow some appreciation like the new Markets and the new college etc...."however"....it's the little things that effect everyday people and peoples everyday lives that don't seem to get enough attention and "that's" what gets up peoples noses...personally the state of the town centre with druggies, drunks and vagrants hanging round that puts me off visiting town to use these new facilities BMBC are putting in place...basically the town centre is a "shithole"...sort it BMBC...Xx

Who should be the winner then Brian ?

Reply Posted by Annie on Sunday October 2 2016 at 12:48
Good question to the haters, turbo - 'who should be the winner?' - in the prestigious (?) Insider Yorkshire Property Industry Awards. I think it's nice that Barnsley has got this award. Why not? Barnsley LA has clearly been judged worthy of winning. I think every success should be celebrated. People who never leave their village and never go into town because they think it is full of crack heads and alcoholics are not best placed to judge, clearly. If you have been to even half of the other Local Authorities in Yorkshire, let alone lived, raised a family and dare I say it worked in some of them, perhaps you could have a more informed opinion.

Reply Posted by turbo on Sunday October 2 2016 at 13:26
Thanks Annie - some of the people that contribute to this forum are never happy with BMBC, probably never happy with anything in their sad lives, i reckon if you gave them the winning lottery numbers for next week they'd moan that it wasn't a roll over week ..

The reaper says - OPEN THE TIPS TO ALL

Reply Posted by Gavelar on Sunday October 2 2016 at 19:46
Sorry what did they win it for? I read the words but I am still none the wiser/ Supporting private companies complete developments - thank god all our problems are solved.

Reply Posted by turbo on Monday October 3 2016 at 20:45
That says it all doesn't it - " i read all the words but i am still non the wiser " -- why not stick to the Beano, or a nice Janet & John book pal .. you'd probably understand those.
BTW - Is desperate Dan still in there ? or was that the Dandy ?

Reply Posted by Gavelar on Tuesday October 4 2016 at 19:57
Go on then brains tell us the exact criteria for the award. What you can't? Well what does the award mean then?

Maybe you its you who shoulf back to Dandy yourself pal. You do know thats a work of fiction though dont you not a newspaper

Reply Posted by turbo on Tuesday October 4 2016 at 21:02
Calm down .. i think your spluttering Beano boy . you're the brains , first you tell us they bought the award ! ( you made that up cos you're a clever dick ) Then you interpret the Latin on the coat of arms ( cos your brainy - not - you googled it ) and then-cos you've just been found out as a fantasist you tell us that really you don't know what the awards about cos you don't understand what you've read .. I think it's best you STFU .. pompous idiot.

Reply Posted by Gavelar on Wednesday October 5 2016 at 10:45
Ha ha when your argument doesn't stand up resort to name calling. Good debating skills. I think you need to calm down you seem to be getting quite offended by a number of people commenting and maybe a little over protective. go out for a walk in town and marvel at the beauty of the centre, it will calm you right down.

If you pay for something is it not bought? Were they nominated by third party? Did they have to pay for entry? Pay to attend the award? Pay for the actual award as in the physical thing? Was every local authority in Yorkshire entered or did only some decide to pay the money to enter?

Couple of more questions not to answer.

I am not a Latin scholar you are correct and never claimed to be. but having lived here for 40 years remembering a single line isn't too difficult.


Reply Posted by turbo on Wednesday October 5 2016 at 11:59
Did they buy the award ? - No. That's the argument and i think you'll find it does stand up.
p.s .. I'm very calm ( you've just made that up as well ) - you're still spluttering ! and still belittling Barnsley councils achievement. There's no point in asking you to read to read up on the award criteria and applicants cos as you said earlier you can't understand it. I never said you were a Latin scholar ( you made that up as well. )

Reply Posted by Gavelar on Wednesday October 5 2016 at 13:21
Oh you make me laugh.

Still choosing not to answer very political.

You say I'm spluttering (you made that up)
You said I wouldn't understand the criteria (you made that up as well)

It's a good game this maybe you should be an mp.

Reply Posted by turbo on Thursday October 6 2016 at 02:07
Sigh .. And you've had me ( and others ) laughing since we read your first response to this thread. You even said " i read the words but I am still none the wiser" ( i didn't make that up ) so what would be the point ? i can't draw any pictures for you here i'm afraid. It's quite easy to find links regarding the work that they do. ( that's if you know what a link is ) or did you choose not to read them before you commented in case it spoilt your little rant..-Your contemptuous attitude ( you said Barnsley council had "bought this tinpot award "- i didn't make that up ) to the councils efforts at being successful in winning this award makes me and others from our great little town sick. No matter what they do, it'll never be good enough for you will it, you'll still be posting on here, making stuff up, slagging them off,as always.Oh and I wouldn't want to be an MP, i'm not clever enough, ( but you surely are, cos you're good at making stuff up ) and you don't deserve one.

Careful your razor wit and intellect will have me in tears.

You do know you are displaying the characteristics of an Internet troll right?

Do you feel it's your job to judge and educate anyone with a differing opinion to your own by being directly insulting to them and prejuduging?

Would you say the same things to my face were we in the same room?

Reply Posted by thegrimreaper on Monday October 10 2016 at 11:58
Very disappointed with your childish response to Turbo , mr gav elar , you have resorted to a neandertal it seems . tut tut and shame on you!

Reply Posted by turbo on Sunday October 23 2016 at 18:09
Oh i'd love to be in the same room as you mate .. we really ought to arrange, oh and bring a mate .. you'd definitely need one, to carry you home to your mummy, and your tears wouldn't be from my "razor wit and intellect " .. on second thoughts though you'd probably make summat up and not show .. Cos that's what you do isn't it .. make things up.

Reply Posted by PRD on Saturday October 1 2016 at 22:01
so Carl you don't visit the town because you say its a shithole. you say its full of drunks, druggies, and vagrants, so why don't you go and live in Sheffield or leeds even Rotherham because they don't have this problem they are bit like London they are paved with gold. you just need to follow the yellow brick road... but come on its not that bad. if the council do sod all they get criticised if they win awards they get criticised. they are far from perfect but credit were credits due.its just not as bad as people are trying to make out. you can see a lot of thought went into the post above makes you think doesn't it.
