  • Mick Castle really is a nasty horrible little man, I thought MPs did a very good job. Perhaps he wants it at Yarmouth

  • I see the big bad keyboard warrior(s) have resorted to trolling here instead of turning up at the debate. And yes, I am there.

  • Each time the protestors have a speaker they like you can hear a pin drop but as soon as someone gives another view the shouting and screaming from them begins. Typical campaigner strategy. Priceless.

  • Good to see the Tories making good use of social media to peddle their Iies, and with that silly tree logo, representing a tree that they would happily see chopped down to make way for an unnecessary housing development containing exactly zero per cent of affordable provision, just so long as the developer has made a party donation.

  • I wonder how Brian Long will stand up if the Council is sued through a lengthy public legal action ? How will he explain his political stupidity ?

  • Of course what should happen is that this matter should be set aside until a later date. We will wait and see..................

  • I think they will have to go along now after a dozen years. The protest is a bit late and that Long bloke is so two faced about it all. He was all for it a whiloe back and voted for it - twice !!

  • It is very noticeable that all of the intelligent comment has come from those who support the scheme and all those against speak in terms of sound bites that they think will appease people. Those against are appearing as either not very bright or not very well read. Certainly they have not read the document detail. Those that can that is.

  • Another noticeable thing is that those who oppose this do so by adding personal insults to their fellow councillors. How did these lower class types ever get into public office. Send them back to the building sites and cab offices where they came from I say.

  • Glad to see the anti brigade getting their say in public. Keeps them quiet I suppose. Just wish we could all get on with the build instead of all this stage stuff.

  • Things were going along fine for the pro lobby until Bill Borrett got his graph out and Mrs Dewsbury had a whipping.
