    Somehow, and from somewhere, i am feeling chills. It feels like, like ... is this hubris?

    I don't know quite what it is...

    Wait, Oh yes, it is shamelessness.

    I am genuinely disappointed in you. For the second time now.

    Hate can so easily blind one.

    You 'can't even English' is so obviously an intentional bending of form; that contains within it an irony that one would also have thought clearly points towards its creation - that the fact that i'm explaining it suggests you are probably a shoe in for election should you choose that route.

    It's called Art - wordsmithery is all a part of it - but not everyone gets it.

    Like you don't.

    In short...

    It's called Art, dah-ling.

    I will no longer expect you to get it.

    Yeah, right. When you cock up it’s art, when someone else makes a mistake it’s because they are Stoooopid !

    Just like Hubby, incapable of admitting you are fallible

    I have no hate in my heart for anyone,

    feck you.

    If you could be trusted to know when someone was lying to you, you wouldn't have found yourself clinging on to the liars that you hold dear to.

    Pretty sure it was already a useful space when it was open with it being a public library.

    The Gallery should never have been closed. It only was closed because the idiot who decided it should be didn’t understand what the arts brought to people and the town.

    This is rubbish. The Shire Hall Gallery made a profit every year.

    Enterprise hub to be created in Stafford’s Shire Hall

    An enterprise hub providing workspace for around 20 small businesses will be created in vacant space in Stafford’s Shire Hall.

    The £2m project will see the area of the building which formerly housed the town’s library transformed.

    It will offer office space, reception facilities, meeting areas, networking opportunities and business advice and support.

    A total of £1.6m has been secured from the national Getting Building Fund through the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership. The remaining cost will be met by the county council or other available funding sources.

    The hub will aim to attract businesses from a range of professional services including solicitors, ICT firms and digital/tech businesses.

    Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for economy and skills Philip White said: “The Shire Hall is an iconic building in the heart of Stafford town centre and it is important we bring it back into productive use for the community and the local economy.

    “Much consideration has gone into the planning of the hall’s future use and our evidence and research has shown there is a need for provision in the town for small businesses. The enterprise hub facility will be in the former library area to the rear of the building and include all the facilities our target businesses will need. It will follow the model of our other enterprise centres with flexible tenancies and a support team on site.

    “A thriving enterprise hub in the Shire Hall will benefit the wider town centre economy and recent investment and planned regeneration undoubtedly make Stafford an attractive place to work and live. How we repurpose our town centres will be critical as we move out of the pandemic period.

    “We will be working closely with colleagues at Stafford Borough Council and the LEP throughout this year as we prepare for the hub’s opening in early 2022.”

    Does every hub have 26 spokes people?

    For £2million you could get Half Man Half Biscuit to cut your hedge
