A CITY Deal designed to pump £1 billion into the region and create more than 31,000 jobs is on track to win approval from the Government within the next year (Sentinel, February 19).
Stoke council must be the best chefs in the country. After all they make the best pie in the sky.
Now, I understand that some of you people won't like this as it will bring good jobs to the area, jobs that some of you will have to get up and take.

Sadly, the Labour council will squander any money they get like they always do. I like the concept of the scheme, but investment decisions need to be made by real business people not part-time councillors who frequently have no business acumen.
So this is how the Government is going to prop up the City Sentral project.
God help us. A council that already has no sense when it comes to spending money to really get the city going (i.e. the proposed new £50 million-plus HQ move to Hanley) are now standing with their hands open for Government money.
THE mile-long Harecastle Railway Tunnel, which dates back to 1848 but has been out of use for more than 40 years, has gone up for sale in the hope someone can breathe new life into the ageing structure (Sentinel, February 19).
I'll buy this tunnel and build my own, more cost effective, version of High Speed Two.
Turn it into the new council offices as Pezzer and co have tunnel vision.
Enough to drive you loco. Steam ahead at all costs. We will take them for a ride no matter what. It will all derail eventually and hit the buffers. A one way ticket for the city. Disaster. The runaway train came over the hill and she blew. The people in charge don't have a clue. It's true, true, true, true, true.
