    what do folks think of this? A good idea or a tourist centre from hell?

    They want to use the visitors centre to generate income from the tourists.

    Why on earth did the council sell off the hostel that enabled folk to amble the moors & stay for the weekend?

    Why not request the help of Heritage Action?

    Thanks for the offer but the Hostel was actually a listed building. When have you been active with anything to do with Ilkley Moor?

    Aww c'mon Kev! Don't be like that. HA's been really effective in dividing people with a common cause, setting one against the other over minute little details, ranting at those who go against the hierarchy. I'm sure they all wear their proud little square moustaches with pride, smiling at you through glazed eyes and gritted teeth, looking up to their Fuhrer, knowing they have done the divisiveness-job really well. Give 'em credit for that at least! Razz

    Oh hang on a minute - d' you mean "wot have they done to protect ancient sites?" scratch Aaaaaahhhhhh..... y' got me there... F-all I think! Still, at least they're all nice & happy! tongue

    It'll certainly be a place where I can make plenty of cash from tourists & selling guide booklets! Cool (printers switching on as I type!) And as the religion of the Free Market keeps telling folk, the market cures all! Of course it'll fuck the moor up, add masses of litter, pollution and environmental damage - but hey - get real! - the Market knows best! affraid

    Paulus,
    Instead of bandying insults and scatter shooting criticism why not be more specific? Or can you not be specific?
    You,I and most posters know that Heritage Action has been at the forefront of Action and preservation.
    It would appear that jealousy is raising it's ugly head Paul.

    As I have already made very clear, I have absolutely no desire to communicate with such a delusional little man.

    Erm...I don't think that Kevin is the person that is a delusional little man here.
    I don't know what your problem is with this forum, but you just invade every thread with your drivel.
    What is your problem with people? why are you so anti-social? are you lonely?
