By: N_Walayat

The 'Beast from the East' weather from Siberia finally hit Sheffield on Wednesday Day 2 after the relative mild Tuesday, with heavy snowfall fall of between 5 cm and 10cm disrupting travel throughout the day as snow flurries continued to fall onto the gritted roads in the coldest weather experienced for at least the past 5 years continuing well into the night! Many motorists decided to do the wise thing and leave their vehicles parked rather than risk driving. However, in the interests of wanting to take a better look at the impacts from the 'Beast from the East's heavy snowfall, I decided to hunt down some of the most treacherous roads to drive in Sheffield, none more so then going to the outskirts of Sheffield, literally within throwing distance of Derbyshire as the this video illustrates, driving in the 'Beast from the East'

By: N_Walayat

The mainstream press has jumped onboard the 'Tea Gate' propaganda story of the week, right from the local media through to the broadsheets by focusing on allegations that some Amey tree felling contractors were apparently 'poisoned' last year from cups of tea handed to them by residents. The Daily Mail names a couple, John and Sue Unwin whom detectives have spoken to following allegations made of worker(s) having fallen ill last October shortly after having drunk cups of tea that were handed to them by Dr Unwin, who vehemently denies the allegations as reported by the Daily Mail.

Charged Atmosphere of Heavy Police and Security Presence at Sheffield Street Tree Felling Protests / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

The immediate effect has been to embolden hired security and Arb's to become more 'aggressive' towards tree protestors which is creating an increasingly charged atmosphere that appears to be building towards an negative event of some kind as the following video illustrates.

The Real LORAX and Once-ler's of Sheffield's Street Tree Felling's / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

I am sure many will have watched the LORAX movie with their children that acts as a warning of what can go wrong when corporate greed runs rampant resulting in the destruction of the environment. Unfortunately the people of Sheffield find themselves in a similar predicament as thousands of street trees are being felled by a corporate Once-ler giant named AMEY. In response to which many of Sheffield's ordinary citizens have turned into real life LORAX who speak for Sheffield's street trees. Against whom are martialed the forces of the establishment, a Labour controlled city council and it's £2.2 billion PFI contractor Amey. Where we have been increasingly witnessing the deployment of measures on the streets that go far beyond the realms of what one would expect from a British local city council, instead which resembles private militias roaming the streets along with their green vested evidence gatherers akin to something out of an eastern european dictatorship.

By: N_Walayat

Many Arboriculturalists' fantasise that their 'profession' is all about looking after the well being of Trees, perhaps even dreaming of themselves as being real life LORAX's. However, the Arb rampage across the city of Sheffield during 2017 revealed the reality that Arboriculturalists are Once-ler's NOT LORAX. For 2017 clearly illustrated that it the ordinary people of Sheffield ARE the REAL LORAX, who with everything stacked against them from Judges in their robes, council evidence gatherers, to recruiting bouncer platoons from the north, had ordinary people in vane try to protect Sheffield's remaining street trees from the Arb Army Once-ler onslaught, that likely claimed near 1000 more big tree's bringing the total felled to date to approx 6,000, MOST of which were HEALTHY TREES!
