    It wasn't just 'our' land - the buildings were paid for by ratepayers and the staff who created what was, at the time, quite a reasonable establishment, were paid by ratepayers - and ratepayers paid for the fittings and equipment, apart from the odd gift.

    This is my first post on this thread because I didn't think that anything I could add to the debate hadn't been said by someone else.

    So this is just a curiousity thing really.

    @Coeus

    There is another thread going on to do with Gothic Cottage in the centre of Stafford, which has been bought by Martin Lennon ( his company ELM Stafford) and is being renovated.

    You have been giving updates on this thread regarding the new windows and the renovation.

    May I ask what your connection to Gothic Cottage/Martin Lennon and the Rugby Club is?

    Are you the business partner of Martin Lennon (MAL) ?

    @Coeus is also @MAL. They are the same person registered under two names.

    I thought that, but didn't want say in case I was wrong.

    I'd prefer admin to confirm that before I treated it as Gospel.

    I wouldn't have posted it if I wasn't 100% certain.

    This is an interesting one, because in relation to this application it is true that NE seem to change their position.

    In the previous application they were quite definitive that - and i quote - strong regard should be given to the position of the local Wildlife Trust.

    That this application came so hard upon the last, i believe that they became somewhat lax, assuming that what went before would be assumed for this one.

    It clearly was not.

    Concerned about this, i sent an email to NE -

    - to which the response that I received was -
    The ^above emphasis is mine, though the wording is not.

    The disturbing thing about your @Coeus identity, @MAL ,is the feigned ignorance - 'i am trying to follow this' - you seem to have created an alter ego that is incapable of grasping quite simple ideas.

    It is possible that i am giving you too much credit, and your alter ego isn't quite so alter - perhaps you are an actual ignoramus - either way it is quite worrying.

    You should probably get that sort of thing checked out. You've been under a lot of pressure lately.

    You know that feeling when you've worked on something so long, been so absorbed by it, that it becomes your baby? When you are so attached to a project that you feel like it is the bread you break, the air that you breathe?

    That's where @MAL is, and it is not a great place to be.


    When the wheels start to grind on the axle - you wonder whether they're true.

    When the cart starts veering to the left, though you're sure you're steering straight, you wonder whether the wheels are aligned.

    When the cart pitches in the ditch, you wonder whether you'll be thrown clear.

    When you're in the ditch, you wonder whether someone'll pull you out.

    Only your friends will pull you out, make sure you have enough of them.

    The friends do need to be in the right places to provide the necessary assistance, of course.
    There is no shortage of material for Rotten Boroughs, unfortunately.

    Well quite - they must have tales of infamy backing up, as if behind some sort of ├╝ber sticky shit clagging up the entire soil stack of the Nation.

    Worth a try, though.

    No doubt the council inmates were and are fully aware of NE's position. So, fraud by misrepresentation -- or incompetence and maladministration if they try to deny it.

    Strobes has been kept in the picture about this terminally rotten borough for several years, but let's hope the latest developments will merit an appearance in PE.
