Comment by Anne on 6th September 2013 at 06:44
I know Scotmans and Pearsons but hunters is anew one to me. Where is it?


Comment by Garry on 6th September 2013 at 06:56
That not going to stop motorbike yobs.


Comment by Mick on 6th September 2013 at 07:03
Im always surprised to see that these gates are still there when Im passing and not been cut off and weighed in at one of the local scrap merchants.


Comment by Garry on 6th September 2013 at 08:33
You and many others have got the Wrong impression of Ince, haven't you Mick at 07:03.


Comment by Ron D on 6th September 2013 at 08:42
THAT WILL KEEP THE CRIPPLES OUT.NO MOBILITY SCOOTERS HERE.


Comment by Michael Collier on 6th September 2013 at 08:50
Hi Anne, hunters flash is the official name but ive always known it as Blackwaters.


Comment by john on 6th September 2013 at 08:57
We used to fish there as kids ,was known as black waters . full of pike and tench,on a sunny day you could stand on top of the slag heaps and see the pike just sunny there self's in the clear water .


Comment by Steve on 6th September 2013 at 09:31
Ron D

Does that included our soldiers who have lost limbs in the war and have to use one of those.

You'll need one of those if you keep talking like that.


Comment by Mick on 6th September 2013 at 09:33
Garry it not just in Ince that metal gates get cut off and weighed in its happening all over Britain dont you know.


Comment by Mick on 6th September 2013 at 10:21
Steve, Rons already got one so he know how these gates restrict the disabled and cyclist getting through and seeing the countryside.

And it all because of teenagers who illegally ride there motorcycles.

Motorcycles that the teenagers parents and familys know that they own.


Comment by Brian B on 6th September 2013 at 10:26
I think you may have misunderstood the point Steve, you may find that Ron D can only go where his mobility scooter will take him.We can only enjoy his pictures of around Haigh etc because of the access.


Comment by Bren on 6th September 2013 at 10:45
Yes Steve, a misunderstanding here. Ron is disabled, a lovely chap who takes some brilliant photographs.. but limited to where he can go.


Comment by Janice on 6th September 2013 at 10:46
I think that Ron D's comment was intended to be a bit or irony. Despite the fact that he apparently has mobility problems himself, I think that the term Cripples is politically incorrect and could be offensive to some folk with disabilities. Quite right though, because of the mindless few, these barriers will also keep out the folk with mobility scooters, prams etc. What's the solution?


Comment by Garry on 6th September 2013 at 14:20
There's a few people misunderstood on here!


Comment by Phil Taylor on 6th September 2013 at 15:50
Steve's comment at 09:31 made me laugh, classic case of a keyboard warrior missing the irony and jumping in feet first with a threat.

With respect to the term Cripple it's not PC but I think I understand Ron's use of the word as a disabled man himself is justified.
Much like the way ethic minorities use the 'N' word when referring to each other.
A good example would be the song Spasticus Autisticus by Ian Dury a man who was himself disabled


Comment by Ken R on 7th September 2013 at 00:14
No apology from Steve, yet.?????


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 7th September 2013 at 00:42
How can anyone who does not know that Ron D is disabled, handicapped, crippled, or whatever other term is politically correct to describe his condition, be expected to understand the irony of his comment?? I didn't have a clue until reading these comments that Ron uses a mobility scooter and I suspect that Steve and many others who read these comments didn't either.


Comment by Steve on 7th September 2013 at 13:13
Agree Hugh, Ron might like to call himself a cripple, but beleive me the soldiers who have lost limbs, and are still raising money for charity's, don't like to called that.

Ken, apology for what????????????


Comment by jason on 7th September 2013 at 20:20
Turners flash Correct name for black waters


Comment by Ron D on 7th September 2013 at 20:50
It does't matter weather you say cripple ,disabled person, or distressed hero, political proceed-ya will still keep you out.
