Scheme to keep revellers safe in Accrington
Yeah down with this sort of thing, burn them all! While we are at it lets go chase the fat people out of town for costing us money on the NHS, the people who decide to have kids and then claiming extra income for them, smokers, drivers for killing the planet etc etc Grow up :)

It has come to something when adults are not capable of looking after themselves and need these type of initiatives to do it for them! I remember an old Irish lady once saying to me 'I will not put a thief in my mouth to steal my brain'. Take responsibility for your own actions and stop being a burden on society!

They’re are pigeon shooters who enjoy killing defenceless living things for fun on Darwen moors. How about hiring them to do something useful!

Waterstones to open bookstore in Blackburn
9.36pm Monday 11th November 2013
This is fantastic news Waterstones coming to Blackburn Mall just the news i was waiting for years.More big name might come to Blackburn likes of Jack&Jones Clas Ohlson miss selfridge Sony Centre Curry Digital Disney store build a bear workshop poundland Goldsmiths,Internaci onale Wilkinson etc etc We need more eateries in town centre likes of Starbucks KFC Burgerking Nandos, Harry Ramsden to attract more people in Blackburn town centre instead of people heading to Preston Bolton and Manchester. The Mall facebook has banned me cause i use to write in saying Mall needs to atract more stores to Blackburn.I was right all along Mall needs more big name stores and the town needs more eateries pubs a Four star hotel and leisure industries like Preston.

About time! How Blackburn can have what is billed on Barbara Castle Way as a university college and yet no bookshop has never failed to amaze those of us who are already long-time Waterstones card holders and eagerly frequent their stores in Preston, Bolton and elsewhere. I fondly remember the days of Seed and Gabbutt in both Darwen Street and Preston New Road but unless I am very much mistaken, they were never in Lord Square. Before Bookland, which fronted onto Ainsworth Street, I remember Sweetens a little nearer to King William Street..

Call to nationalise Northern Rail
Are you happy with a second class service and having to pay more for it to satisfy the shareholders? Public utilities should be just that. Ie public and under the control of the people of this country. Any profit made should go to re investment and not into the pockets of people living abroad. Say what you like but privatisation has led to people now living in fuel poverty. and that ain''t good.
5.04pm Wednesday 30th October 2013
Darren, I'm on a planet where there is no prospect of northern rail being nationalised. If you believe there is a good chance that will be the way forward, rather than a baseless sound bite, I would ask which bloody planet are you on.

Thugs threaten to kill Blackburn cabbie
Beer can attack! Don't have to guess the colour of these individuals, never mind though the racists, bitter sad individuals will find something else to moan about because white people obviously don't commit any crime.

Darren 1951 says; How many cab drivers in Blackburn have floats? Also, I should think it's quite easy to take that amount on a Sunday - people returning from weekends away by train needing transport to outlying villages, for instance, plus it happened in the early hous of Monday morning, which suggests he'd worked quite a long shift. Darren1951, I drive a Taxi in Blackburn. Taxi drivers DO carry a float. Can you imagine if your customers tried to pay you with a large note - at the end of the journey? Stop being skeptical and listen to reason. Some people do carry large amounts of money. It makes them feel good. If you think it is possible to earn £200 on a Sunday night in Blackburn, be my guest. Drive MY Cab every Sunday night.

They WILL be caught. Mark my words. Some of you failed to note that, part of his money - maybe £40 - would have been his float. It should also be noted that, on a quiet Sunday night , it is NOT possible to earn this kind of money in Blackburn. I drive a Taxi in Blackburn.
