I think the yin-tong song just about suits the times. But we must have the odd burst of I'm Walking Backwards To Christmas somewhere. You know,I've always meant to try that. Wonder if it works?

Slim, I think walking backwards to Christmas only works if you've run forwards past it in the first place <erm>

Just to correct you - Nottingham didn't have Robin Hood as a logo, it has twostags (believe it or not!)
Sue Townsend, Daniel Lambert, Bill Maynard, John Merrick (Elephant man), Simon De Montfort!!!!

Who do Nottingham have???

Don't say Brian Clough either, he was from Teeside!!!

Actually whilst I am here I would like to talk about Sheffield/Doncaster airport and interviews by Central News where they asked people in the City Centre what they thought of it being named after Robin Hood.

The general concensus being that it was wrong to name an airport in 'Yorkshire' after a character synonymous with Notts.

Fair point - But what these Notts folk don't tell you is that Robin Hood is actually from Yorkshire, so Sheffield/Doncaster airport are well within their rights to name it after him!!!

Another case of snatching at something nearby that doesn't quite belong to them, I think. I seem to have a familiar ringning in my ears.

Was this not also the catalyst for Notts County Council changing its logo from Robin Hood to 'The Big N', very original and perhaps a slight case of sour grapes???

Not strictly true. If you look at Civil Aviation Authority figures, the numbers of passengers using NEMA was LESS in the first full year after Nottingham was added to EMA's name than in the last year under its old one. Overall, the total number of air passengers increased considerably in that year, and I think there was only one other UK airport that experienced a fall in passenger numbers. The increase in the number of flights using NEMA should have resulted in an increase in the number of passengers using the airport during 2006, but if you look at Ryanair's website (who operate far more flights out of the airport than any other airline) everything revolves around East Midlands - no mention of Nottingham. So if they can grow a market from zero to becoming the major operator without using Nottingham, why not just revert to its former name? Surely, the change has failed in its objective, so why continue with it?
They say that passenger numbers have increased since the name was changed to mention Nottingham. Does it really make sense to change it again?

Famous for what? Some fictitious character in green tights. At least our historical figures are real, and not an idiotic figure of fun running around with a bow and arrow.
Nottingham East Midlands airport? Ive been to a few places around the World, and Ive never come across an airport that actually acknowledges that NEMA exists at all, so how famous is that crime ridden gun capital that your so proud of.
Why dont you try crawing out from your own arse and having a look at the real World.

And Robin Hood was nearer to Doncaster than Nottingham anyway!!
