    BIG BROTHER AT WORK ! The referenced page has been heavily redacted. Did anyone capture it before the material was censored? The Star has more questions to answer about how and why it took down material that had originally been published.

    Hmm – the people of Sheffield are finally seeing, first hand, what rubbish is representing them in local Government in the name of Labour ! We saw it here, at Town Hall Towers, but threw away the opportunity to sweep out the dross who had been found “not fit for purpose” by a Government Inspector ! Same old political thought process of “If my dad voted Labour then I will do the same” will finish off this town completely !
