More to come

It took time but the story below was eventually published in the Nottingham Evening Post (see here) and is now causing quite a few within County Hell to snigger under their breath and leak nicely.

As we approach the silly season I suggest that Vogons will need to watch their backs and keep an eye on this site.

There's more to come

Thursday, 3 June 2010

Welcome to the Parish of **********shire

A directive has now been issued from the Vogon leader that officers must not in future refer to "Greater Nottingham" or "the connurbation".

This would be comical if it weren't so serious.

It appears that in her desperation to have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the City of Nottingham, the County leadership are willing to sacrifice our future prosperity. Nottingham is one of the 8 core cities outside London which are seen as the economic drivers of the country. That puts us into direct competition with Manchesater, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield and further afield Amsterdam, Barcelona, Cologne and Lyon for investors. Whereas our competitors have unified authorities singing from the same hymn sheet we will now be seen as a tiny fragmented outpost.

In fact it will make us a laughing stock of the European Commercial world.

However, I have put this notice up here as I know this site is visited by most officers of the County and I would like to warn them that if they continue to fight for our regions prosperity and don't want to see the Greater Nottingham connurbation become an unemployment blackspot, then their jobs, like many in the area could be on the line.

As they say on the planet Vogon; "You gets what you votes for"
