The Poetry of Irony....

Ozymandias 

Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.



The central theme of "Ozymandias" is contrasting the inevitable decline of all leaders and of the empires they build with their pretensions to greatness. Prevent Cromwell Bottom LNR achieving such a state

Those interested in Cromwell Bottom LNR might be interested in the non sensical development proposed by Head of Service which significantly misled cabinet and proposed by politicians on a number of fronts with the aim  to extract monies from our Natural History and destroy the last semblage of the Jewel in Calderdales Crown.


We will be holding a meeting aprox 3rd week in May TBC  to provide a clear analysis of this folly and to clarfy fully the facts on the matter that appear to be being negotiated separately and discretely as a consultative process . Such a meeting will engage all Stakeholder Groups and Statutory Undertakers involved with the site . The Councils previous allusion to meetings involved them being unminuted and individuals with no core understanding or knowledge on site matters resulting in a sham that did not ammount to a process . It will be interesting to see if the HOS attends to justify the Technical , Legal Planning and Logistic aspects of his suggestion
