I have heard a rumour that Gail is forming an all female post menopausal militia to cleanse the streets of Headingley - but sleep tight, I think it's just a rumour...

Oh come on neighbours, let’s not start getting po-faced! Though I wouldn’t choose exactly Gail’s words, I don’t think for a moment she meant it seriously (by the way, I don’t know her; but occasionally all of us express ourselves in ways that are a mite ill-judged...no names no pack-drill, as they used to say in the army...) And at least she’s prompted the ever-inventive Mark Wilson to coin an interesting neologism, and a portmanteau-word at that. I shall look for early opportunities to ‘displore’ somebody. Incidentally, a useful discussion. TG

Eh? Can she have meant people to be disposed of? What, like “the disappeared” in Argentina? What did Clinton call people who didn’t agree with her? Ah yes, “deplorables”. Maybe Gail would like a term like “Displorable” meaning “Someone who disagrees with me in a deplorable way and who I’d like to dispose of”.

Funny, I thought we lived in a democracy, where you had a mixture of views. Loads of people say things every day I deplore, but I’d never suggest disposing of them. I wholeheartedly commend the “kinder” style of politics, like Jezzah.

Dear Gail

Shouldn’t it be a burning question on everyones lips if the LCC is struggling with 40% why are they throwing large sums of money at a high risk venture like the regeneration of the market when there are many alternatives up and running successfully all over the city ?

And a list of people for disposal ? I’m sure I don’t need to point out that are many dangerous historical precedents for this philosophy.

I saw a TV programme once on the divide between rich and poor in British society and they used Boar Lane as an example, where the 'rich' shop on one side (VQ) and the 'poor' on the other (the market). It is pretty much the last place in Leeds city centre that is genuinely inclusive.

I love going there and get my fish there regularly. I do think LCC is guilty of not being very creative and measuring acheivement in such like the arrival of John Lewis, unfortunately whilst Leeds has a great compact centre the rents are extortionate so there is little hope of any small, independent concerns thriving (having said that there has been some success stories in Grand Arcade and the area by the side of the WYP).

However LCC are limited by central gov financial policies that mean the more big business' an area generates, the more income they receive. Even more important in the face of still trying to cope with the approx 40% reduction in expenditure across services over the last few years.

Strong communities like Headingley and Chapel Allerton, Kirkstall and Oakwood (who all have their own farmers markets) could perhaps do more to promote the use of the market and see it as part of a central community, use to help host events etc?

On a slightly less constructive note I do wish there were some Headingley residents I could put on the list of "disposables" arghh!!!!

I shop there regularly - great for meat, fruit, veg and of course, fish. It may be less local than many continental markets, but it remains the best city market I have been in in the UK.

The missed opportunity is two-fold:

* Under-occupancy - generally meaning that they landlord (LCC, or us, the council-tax payers) are seeking excessive rents
* Cooked food - yes the fish sandwich and coffee places are great, but that big space should be a jostling mix of small start-up and established eateries dragging lunchtime trade out of John Lewis and VQ; interesting international food not burgers, with options to sit as well as take-away.

And like Tony G, I eat game, black pudding and other traditional stuff (sorry Helen, not tripe), but if I can't persuade the rest of my own family to eat them, what's the hope for continuity ?

The market never really recovered from the fire 40 years ago. Whatever interest the LCC might have taken back then in the markets has certainly diminished since then.

Its been clinging on by its fingertips for a couple of decades.

I’m sure it must be on the LCC’s list of disposables if it doesn’t have any statutory protections.

Well I went down to the Leeds Market today, It is a long time since I was there with the long time away so it was rather a shock to see how it had changed.

None of the changes seemed for the better unfortunately.

Is that people like me now neglect the market and thus the reduction in visitors/stalls I wondered or is it another case of the LCC being able to wreck anything it touches as it did with the place under the station, and to a lesser degree the Merrion Market?
