SO THE Shoreham Airshow disaster inquest has been postponed again and many of the recommendations made by the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AIIB) have been rejected by the industry regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

This includes advice on the distance between crowds and flying displays, requests to force organisers to demand a breakdown of manoeuvres before a pilot takes to the sky, stricter risk assessment rules and changes to the way flying permits are issued.

This will be a double blow for the families of the 11 victims, who have spent the last year campaigning for answers and safety measures to be put in place so what happened on August 22, 2015, never happens again.

As long as the inquest continues, the families continue to live the disaster over and over. They were assured things would change but so far, only very few changes have been made.

They still have no solid answers, no one is taking responsibility for the disaster and new safety recommendations are being thrown out.

It may seem the CAA is not taking what happened at Shoreham seriously enough but since the disaster, it has raised the fees it charges airshow organisers by 100 per cent, meaning an end for a lot of the smaller ones, potentially including Shoreham anyway.

Meanwhile, the AIIB has still not finished its job of gathering all the data and is producing a report which will then give other bodies the information they need, should prosecutions be required.

You would have hoped an organisation created to improve safety would have come up with a conclusive report within a year of the tragedy.

It seems hard to conceive that there is still new evidence left for it to gather, having recovered cockpit video footage and other aircraft performance data.

The slow progress seems scandalously cruel and reminiscent of the Hillsborough Disaster’s hideously protracted inquest.

The Argus: An artist's impression of Moshimo's sky high proposed

In other news, Moshimo’s £4 million proposal for a sky high expansion has been approved. The snazzy sushi restaurant is situated in Brighton’s Bartholomew Square.

I have a great fondness for Bartholomew Square, having got married in the town hall.

It’s a shame so much money is going to be spent on it but none where it is actually needed.

Moshimo co-founder Nicholas Röhl hopes the 85ft high restaurant will lead to modern architecture being used to brighten up other neglected parts of Brighton. He said: “Because Bartholomew Square has become so benighted and lacklustre, what else could be done there. Something dramatic had to be done.”

Maybe Nicholas could have proposed using some of the £4 million to build a homeless shelter for the people who live under the arches opposite the restaurant outside Subway, in a camp made from dirty duvets? That would have been dramatic.

The current view is certainly not worth £4 million. I can’t imagine it will look any better from 85 feet up in the air either.

I suppose there is a chance leftover salmon rolls could be tossed out of the windows to those starving on the street below – that’s something.

While I am on the subject, rather than burning New Balance trainers in protest after Matthew LeBretton, the company’s vice president of public affairs, praised Trump, people could have given them to the homeless instead.

It all started with LeBretton declaring “The Obama administration turned a deaf ear to us and frankly, with president-elect Trump, we feel things are going to move in the right direction”.

Bretton was only referring to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, an initiative led by president Barack Obama and staunchly opposed by Trump, not all of Trump’s policies.

But it was not interpreted that way and hundreds of flaming trainers started cropping up on Facebook and Twitter.

Some people symbolically flushed their shoes down the toilet.

Even worse for the company, neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin then declared New Balance the “official shoes of white people”.

“I’m a Nike guy. Or rather, I was,” anti-Semitic, white supremacist Anglin wrote on his Daily Stormer site. “It’s time to get on-board with New Balance now. Their brave act has just made them the official brand of the Trump Revolution.”

He declared New Balance their ‘ uniform’. “This will be fantastic,” Anglin said joyously. “We will be able to recognize one another by our sportswear.”

New Balance took to social media to defend itself against the accusations that its support of Trump’s TPP stance meant it also supported his more controversial statements. – like banning Muslims from entering the United States, a mass deportation of undocumented immigrants or building a wall along the Mexican border.

Mud sticks though. I’ll be giving my (beloved) New Balance a wide birth.

I can’t give them away as they have remedial inserts glued into them for my arthritic crippled feet.
