Ey up, Eric. Possible wrong'uns herein, along with some fine folks with no sense.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Sometime back and related to #metoo a bunch of women in architecture collated a list of dodgy old men. Peter Marino is / was an absolute grade A certified danger.

Yeah, his scientific faves are looking pretty cunty right now as well, another industry that needs an Augean broom.

Went to see the Calder exhibition in the Botin Centre in Santander t'other day.
I was pretty scathing about it when it was first built.
I wuz wrong.
Spending some time in and around it changed my mind.
It actually works really well in itself and brings the surrounding area into play in a way that expands the usability of the waterfront.
Nice to be proved wrong.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Excellent idea

But potential issues:
- If it turns out to be a good school, parents will try to get kids from further away in and how will they get there?
- How will teachers travel, given how shite public transport is in Leeds generally?

Load of bollocks. My daughter’s school has no car parking spaces and discourages dropping off. It’s fucking 4x4 carnage twice a day. The majority of kids live within half a mile of the school.

Often wondered why wimmins are so fond of these massive cars.
Señora Musta trundles around in a fuckin Landcruiser.
Claims she needs it to ferry dogs back and forth.

The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it.

There's an expression on interest thing doing the rounds for a mass transit system for Leeds - feasibility study etc. Good news if it starts going somewhere.

I feel like we get one of these every few years or so. Isn't Leeds the largest city in Europe without some kind of integrated transport system? Something like that, anyway.

Aye, and without a proper airport.

Aye, I know. Really has to happen at some point though.

Make of it what you will

Cynics may note that:

a) The file name of the pdf includes 'version 18'.
b) The final page is p20, but labelled as 20 of 21.

I feel sure they know what they're doing.
