The owner of Honister Slate Mine is to appeal after plans for a mile-long zip wire were rejected.
Have your say
PaulM - yes I visit the area regularly thanks. I knew the area before the slate mine attraction opened and the roads were much easier to use, the mine as it is attracts a large number of visitors, of they can't survive on the numbers they have now a *temporary* zip wire won't make a bit of difference to them.Derek, both were valid points you raised.
... Although by letting through the petty sarcastic comments the moderator has shown their bias in this matter, I had thought newspapers were impartial. When you starting weighting articles towards a certain viewpoint you've stopped reporting the news and starting pushing your own agenda, the same applies to moderating comments. When you allow sarcastic petty remarks through then you allow people to make attacks on others which is poor.
Well done to the moderators of these comments, when you start letting petty sarcastic comments through like the one posted by Marra then it makes any attempts at discussion here worthless.
