Next is off. Meh.

Posted on October 4th, 2012 by Keith

So Next, TK Maxx and H&M are planning to move out of the city centre and onto the ESG shopping complex. As you would expect, a lot of hot internet air is flying over this (and probably even some real life hot air too! Oudafortit!). But does it really even matter? The shop floor staff […]

An open letter to Herefordshire Council leader, Cllr John Jarvis

Posted on August 2nd, 2012 by Keith

We the undersigned wish to point out that Britain is now in the midst of the worst double-dip recession for 50 years. Economic forecasts – whether predicting changes in the UK, Europe or the whole world – are universally bleak. British householders (especially pensioners) have never had to endure such straightened conditions in peacetime. There […]

Posted on July 11th, 2012 by Keith

This week, Waitrose has officially agreed to help alleviate Hereford’s chronic supermarket shortage by opening up a new store at the old cattle market building site.

Could Hereford’s fairy story become a costly nightmare?

Posted on April 14th, 2012 by Keith

We’re all familiar with the tale of the Emperor’s New Clothes, where a vain leader is hoodwinked by a pair of unscrupulous tailors. Have we, perhaps, been witnessing a re-enactment of Hans Christian Anderson’s story at Brockington this month, with Cllr John Jarvis in the lead role and Cllr Mark Hubbard as the incredulous child […]

Posted on April 5th, 2012 by Keith

Leader of the council, John Jarvis ‘Cockup’, today suspended its cabinet meeting after members of the public refused to leave to allow ‘private’ discussions to take place. Councillors walked out of their own meeting to carry on in private to cries of anger from the public gallery. After reconvening in public 40 minutes later, the […]

Council bans public from crucial ESG meeting

Posted on April 4th, 2012 by Keith

Herefordshire Council will tomorrow decide the fate of the city’s Edgar Street Grid project in a meeting that will see much of the debate conducted behind closed doors. The council’s cabinet are expected to pass a whole host of agreements that will effectively see Hereford screwed over by big business, as well as breaking any […]

EXCLUSIVE: Cinema dropped from ESG plans

Posted on March 30th, 2012 by Keith

There is strong speculation tonight that one of the key components of Herefordshire Council’s hare-brained ESG project will now not go ahead. Documents leaked to the Heckler from high inside the council show that the proposed multi-screen cinema – seen by many as an incentive to bring skeptical Herefordians on side – is very likely […]

One-day events put ESG back one whole year

Posted on March 29th, 2012 by Keith

Sitting in the boardroom, sipping the obligatory ‘locally-produced’ drinks, the Hereford Futures PR team leaf through George Osborne’s Big Book of Excuses to try and find a reason why the ESG won’t be ready for when they said it would (it doesn’t look good to admit good old-fashioned incompetence you know). “Hmm, well we can’t […]

Giving away the cattle market

Posted on March 26th, 2012 by Keith

“Wouldn’t you just love playing poker with Jarvis Cockup,” says What I Heard About Herefordshire Council of council leader John Jarvis. “British Land have told Hereford Futures that the ESG scheme as set up by Stanhope is a load of rubbish, with a shortfall of £30m. So the only way they will stay at the […]

The Highway-To-Nowhere is going nowhere

Posted on March 22nd, 2012 by Keith

Our man in the know gives further insight into the ESG link road and plans to relocate businesses. Back in November 2003 (even before ESG – let alone Hereford Futures – had been thought of), Geoff Hughes gave a presentation to Hereford Civic Society about the Edgar Street Grid masterplan. Someone in the audience asked: […]
