Please excuse this first paragraph as I am bitter. The Police and the council were made fully aware of the individual shown on the video posted on November 20th after a long crime spree. Nothing at all has been done about this male who IS A ONE MAN CRIME SPREE.  I still believe in fate so letís see if a few details (home truths) that offend the blinkered officials looking after us have any effect. The local Labour Party is going to love this list of crimes from this one person..........

1.   10 plus caught thefts from Super Markets on Station Lane and a ban
2.   Repeated theft attempt of power tools from a workshop
3.   Theft of charity box from a cafe
4.   Car windscreen smashed to steel trainers
5.   Attempted sale of stolen trainers in a cafe
6.   Burglary of a charity shop
7.   Theft of Christmas presents

I am sure the list will grow from the seventh entry when the Labour party who do not read this site read it and work it out.
Hopefully traders will add to this particular persons escapades, but the question is will those who are looking after us do the same? Who is this male and where does he live. It appears there is something going on in Featherstone that is on the QT and only Police and Cllrs know. Well not any more. The question to ask is Featherstone a bail hostel? Part of the answer is known so I hope the response is honest. Angry

Itís one of the hottest weekends for shop lifting. This pair of mother and son has been practising their work. The boy is well trained in holding objects in front of cameras and checking the coast is clear while the mother steels items either under her clothes or bay adding items in to packets. They usually park up and then hit one store before leaving town.

This guy arrived back in Featherstone about summer time. It did not take long to see him steeling from local shops. This week he hit one store 3 times until finally being caught and band. Crap hit the fan when he tried to steel from another shop and was un-politely shown the wall. White male age about 40 greasy hair in pony tail. Tattoos around neck and small beard, often has a hoody. Likes to carry a large carrier bag with a bag inside to pad it out and look full. Likes to fill his pockets as well.

There have been a number of break ins and thefts in the area. Some of these crimes have come up with the same culprits on other videos as the ones shown. Shortly after this video a car wind screen was smashed to steel a pair of trainers in a box. Names are all ready floating about. Where are the parents?

During the Br-Exit debate this topic was not commented on. I agree as for once, oneís own opinion was what mattered.
Events after the Br-Exit vote were very unusual. Amongst the many irregularities the Parliamentary Petition for a re-vote appeared to show how far those making money would go to.
What troubles me now is the new wave of money makers taking advantage and the allowance of this by the Government. From the first day after the Br-Exit vote companies began increasing prices. Common figures are 6% and 10%. Added to pension schemes arriving in 2017 it is fair to say a 15% to 20% increase in the next 8 months on the majority of products in the U.K.
When I say money makers, can anyone offer more than these observations and final comment?
1.   Nothing has officially changed commercially since the vote.
2.   The U.K. Government has not signed out of the E.U. yet or offered a date to do so.
3.   We the public are still paying the weekly E.U. bill as agreed which covers no extra costs until we are out.
4.   No one has been charged an extra tax.

Meanwhile in anticipation of the U.K. leaving the E.U. many companies from Countries such as Australia and Canada are already knocking at the door with cheaper products and better quality who are finding it difficult to enter.

Understandably this is a new situation but there has to be governance by the U.K. Government. If the Government is going to stall before leaving Europe then they and the E.U. should pay our apparently false new increases in living. Otherwise who would not think the Government is allowing a racket. Perhaps a simple Parliamentary petition calling for Br-Exit increases to be paid by the Government until they sign out would be another avenue for the people?

Part two of the Featherstone Chronicle on Google is now complete and covers from 1886 to 1900. It has about 30 photographs and 16 maps or diagrams. Not everyone is interested in events so far back but I feel they should be recorded on the internet.

No surprises with this weekís regeneration attempts. The Station Lane weight limit scheme incorporating a residents only zone on Post Office Road and the new Green Lane link road is now a month behind starting and looks 6 to 8 months away.
Meanwhile due to the new path a new water pipe burst has begun on the corner of the cross roads. Works look due to start just as traffic lights go up for a month from 1st August outside the Junction Pub.
Then the week got a little more interesting. Works finished outside OneStop and immediately cars began to park the tar is all ready pulling up and showing tyre marks and sinking. Sadly how are people to learn any better when our local Cllrs do the same and park on double yellows? Workmen moved on to Fearnley Street corner and have informed one shop owner that they are not doing any more. Best of all it appears that the ownership of the land and the Yorkshire stone flags taken by WMDC has been subject to a re-think. Apparently the Yorkshire Stone did belong to the many properties and will now be returned upon request. How much is that going to cost to put right?
