    Wonder why Adam Hill, head of SBC Leisure, took on a directorship of brand new company, Stafford Rugby Ltd, then resigned as a director of Stafford Rugby Union Football Club Ltd? Interesting that both the 2014 and 2016 applications were by 'Stafford Rugby Club', a name that doesn't exist at Companies House.

    Done my bit too, but I completely despair of some of the comments I've just read that are in favour of it.:(

    Ah yes the rallying call from the chairman, who in this weeks newsletter makes nasty comments about locals, rallying call from players and no doubt the SBC employee. Not bad for a team watched by 50 people on average.

    Bias - inclination or prejudice for or against one person or group, especially in a way considered to be unfair.

    So if these plans are under review why is preliminary work being done. Surely until the review has been conducted they can't. Someone was putting paint markings down the other day and now all the trees are being felled.

    "Cutting the trees down anyway" is a local tradition.

    No real need for it is there. Let the wildlife have a home for a little while longer till it's all bulldozed and flood lights are up etc.

    Leave 'em altogether for me.

    Possibly using the "get 'em down before any nests get in the way" reasoning....?

    Or, "just whack 'em down and get away with it anyway"...?

    You can't use wildlife as an objection if they've already killed it all!

    Or the "biodiversity officer", or "SWT" as yet.

    Unless i missed them.

    Be interesting to see if the 'biodiversity officer' stands his ground and registers his objection in line with SWT as before he did - if he doesn't it will be quite apparent that he's been 'got at', so to speak.

    I've met the chap, and he's struck me as being a man of integrity, so i expect him to maintain his line of opposition.

    Actually, i think Bill Waller deserves an enormous amount of credit for opposing this in the last round - it is entirely possible that it was not easy for him to be so free with his opposition.

    Round Two - ding ding

    I think it is quite clear that the site is not on the Nature reserve. It is always helpful to deal in facts
