Green Party Could Control Sheffield City Council Balance of Power Local Election 2018 / Local / UK Local Elections

By: N_Walayat

The Green party with 4 Sheffield Council seats could see their numbers rise to 5 tonight at the Nether Edge by election that could set the scene for a shock Labour loss of control of the city council at the May 2018 local elections, by handing the Green's the balance of power so that a minority Labour could continue in power.

The key driver in the surge in the Green vote is Sheffield City Council's £2 billion PFI contract with Spanish owned firm Amey that over the past 2 years has gone out of its way to anger and outrage Sheffield's residents most notably in its wholesale felling of thousands of Sheffield's biggest and most beautiful trees, likely for profit such as for use as bio fuel as the following video illustrates.

Nether Edge & Sharrow By-Election, Will Labour Lose Safe Council Seat, Sheffield? / Local / UK Local Elections

By: N_Walayat

The Sheffield city council by election is to be held in the safe Labour council seat of Nether Edge & Sharrow tomorrow Thursday 22nd of June. Therefore the Labour candidate could be forgiven for taking a laid back approach to the election which following Jeremy Corbyn's spectacular general election campaign and outcome will surely be a walkover. Especially given that Labour managed to unseat former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg in Sheffield Hallam barely 2 weeks ago.

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.

Will Nick Clegg Lose Sheffield Hallam Seat to Labour in Election 2017? / Local / 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.

Silverdale, High Storrs, City Council Determined to Destroy Sheffield's Best State Schools / Local / Sheffield

However, further down the league tables the downwards spiral in performance accelerates with King Ecgbert, Bradfield and High Storrs leading the way.

Sheffield Best Secondary Schools League Tables Trend Analysis 2015 / Local / Sheffield

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.

Sheffield School Places Admissions Crisis - End of Catchment Areas Labour Election Bribe? / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

The Labour controlled Sheffield City Council is desperately attempting to address the perfect storm that the city faces as the demand for places at Sheffield's best state schools far exceeds places available that for some schools is resulting in twice the number of applications as there are places (i.e. Dobcroft Infants Sch. places 90, applications 150). The perfect storm is as a consequences of several converging factors of year on year real terms budget cuts at a time of a rising natural birth rate, continuing out of control immigration and its consequences in terms of disruption of social cohesion in areas of the city, desperate parents utilising every trick under the sun to circumvent the catchment area rules such as encouraging over eager psychologists to expand the scope of the Special Educational Needs statements (SEN's) that for some schools has now been expanded to include 1/3rd of all children, and an epidemic in outright fraudulent school applications in terms of use of catchment area addresses.
