Sprinklers for All 24 Sheffield City Council Tower Blocks, What About Other 100? / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Sheffield city council announces on twitter that they will be installing sprinkers in all of their 24 tower blocks. Though it's a pity it took the deaths of approx 100 people at Grenfell Tower in Kensington for SCC to do what they should have done many years ago, espcially in the wake of the 2009 Lakanal House tower block fire. Also, no time table was given for when the installaiton of sprinkers will be completed. Is it tasked as a matter of urgency i.e. within a couple of months, or will the council put their feet up and take several years?

Amey Playing Cat and Mouse Game with Sheffield Residents and Tree Campaigners / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Amey's £2 billion PFI "Streets Ahead" contract with Sheffield City Council that the people of Sheffield had no say in, apparently involves the cutting down of tens of thousands of Sheffield's biggest and most beautiful trees. Whilst some of the trees do need to go i.e. because of disease, but most of the trees are apparently being cut down so as to avoid annual 'maintenance' costs. That and potential for profit given that the wood from a large trees could be worth several thousands of pounds.

Nick Clegg Forecast to Win Sheffield Hallam - 75% Probability / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Whilst the BBC's shock hung parliament exit poll currently forecasts that Nick Clegg's Sheffield Hallam seat is too close to call meaning that Labour could take it. This is backed up by BBC reporting of worried voices out of Lib Dems at the count. However according to the betting markets as illustrated by Betfair have following the close of polls marginally shifted in Nick Clegg's favour currently pricing Nick Clegg on 1.14 against Labour on 1.44 which converts into an implied probability of about 70% to 75% for Nick Clegg winning Sheffield Hallam (when taking into account Labour trading at 1.44).

By: N_Walayat

The unfolding Sheffield election battles are centered around whether the current 4 or 5 Labour MP's (is Penistone a Sheffield constituency?) or the former Lib Dem Leader retain their seats. So could Labour being 10% or so behind the Tories result in the feared landslide election victory for Theresa May in the BrExit election include Labour losing a seat?

Can Labour Win Nick Clegg's Sheffield Hallam Seat in Election 2017? / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

In the 2015 General Election former Lib Dem Leader Nick Clegg put up a valiant battle in the face of a national Liberal Democrat wipeout. For in 2015 the opinion pollsters consistently had Labour winning the Sheffield Hallam Lib-Dem seat. Instead Nick Clegg managed to cling on in the wake of a Lib Dem bloodbath, however he did fall by a whopping 13% tumbling from 53.4% to 40% of the voter. Whilst Labour doubled their share from 16.1% to 35.8%, just 4.2% behind Nick Clegg. Whilst the Tories on just 13.6% clearly don't stand any chance of winning Sheffield Hallam in this election at least.

Will Sheffield Labour Lose MP Seats in BrExit Election 2017? / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A perfect storm is about to hit the Labour party where even Labour MP's in the capital city of the Peoples Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire may not be immune to what is likely to transpire, a wipeout of the Labour party at the polls where the driving forces are BrExit, as Theresa May makes a convincing argument for requiring a large majority towards helping ensure the strongest possible hand during the BrExit negotiations without subversion from the Scottish Nationalists or Labour's borrow and spend agenda. After all Sheffield did vote for BrExit.

By: Adnaan_Walayat

Whilst most parents / students look at the most recent Sheffield school league table in making their secondary school choices, however these can from time to time prove highly misleading as many of Sheffield's 37 Secondary schools / Academies for whatever reason exhibit volatility in performance from year to year therefore a currently high ranking school may not mean that the same level of performance will continue for subsequent years as it may have been subject to special intervention and circumstances, therefore a much better methodology in the rating of schools is evaluation in terms of trend and deviations against trend.
