    So he isn't being punished at all. That will fuel the conspiracy theories!
  3. Council buy Eddie Stobart HQ

    Well. Firstly, from a purely financial point of view, they need to be getting all of this right. If anybody isn't concerned, they should be. It has the potential to become a massive problem. Secondly, the council's growing role as a developer is in direct conflict with its role as a planning authority. Councillors should be raising some serious questions about what this means for local democracy.
  4. Time for regular re-tests ?

    Seems an 80 yo couple crashed into car whilst driving the wrong way, whilst towing a caravan, on a M/way, killing themselves and the 30 driver of the other car. Not the first time this has happened of course; so is it time for regular re-testing (including medicals) for all drivers ?
  5. Another big "investment" by Warrington Borough Council. https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2018/10/16/warrington-council-buys-eddie-stobart-distribution-hq-for-26m/
  6. The Railway in Latchford Village.

    Yes Peter T is sadly missed along with many other posters who are now no longer with us - but living on in spirit on here!
  7. Grand Final

    It could have been a much different story if Tomkins had received his punishment on the day! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2018/10/16/tomkins-banned-for-grand-final-incident/
  8. Taxpayer milked again -

    The parading of wealth in a sea of austerity, is what sparks republican revolutions. These people would be wise to learn from history and tone it down to the levels of their Scandanavian cousins, before the peasants revolt.
  9. Taxpayer milked again -

    Just read an article regarding the wedding & surprised how many Hollywood hangers on there were ,no doubt helping to fleece the taxpayer. I think the cost of these ceremonies would be better received if a healthy percentage of "the man & woman in the street" were invited instead of these thespians.

    Very nice to see someone who sees through the quagmire. Trump can be a jerk, he doesn't have the plastic finish of politicians and he sees nothing wrong with telling it like it is and naming names, but by God,, he can get the job done. You have to make your own choice, Obama who wasted eight years on rhetorical speeches or Trump who kicks ass every day. The news today, Trumps approval ratting is way up and now there is talk of a 'red wave' in the mid terms, not the trumpeted ' blue wave'. it is always uphill for Republicans because the media constantly promotes Democrats, even, as you say, internationally, but good people (Ihope !) will win out in the end. I unintentionally have become a pretty good pundit of American politics and if you want a better view than the disgusting BBC, please ask. I promise that the fact that I consider liberals a greater threat than Islamic terrorists, will not affect my reporting !! Watching Fox News is a first requirement.
  11. Last week
  12. Hilary 2020

    I've been watching all this unfold since the election in 2016 and have to say that the media is all (with the exception perhaps of FoxNews) on a mission to destroy Trump by all and any means possible. This includes the media in the UK for some reason. The BBC never fails to talk about Trump without sneering and talking down any of his achievements. The way Treason May treats him is disgusting for a politician and shows what a hole we are in with her in charge. But I think Trump's attitude is "sod them all, I don't need them." The Democrats are nasty though, not at all the party of the people, more like the party for themselves, much like Corbyn's Labour really.

    Wish I could explain it Asp, but it's very puzzling. One thing at the bottom of it is power, the left is still pissed that Clinton lost and to an uncouth non politician no less. Then Trump goes on to decimate Isis, bring North Korea to agree to drop nuclear weapons, create the lowest unemployment rate ever, the highest GDP in forty years, less people on welfare, biggest tax cut in history etc, etc,. The left knows that if they don't destroy Trump they will never see power again, so they are trying character assasination of him and anyone supporting him. They have just tried and probably succeeded in destroying the life and family of Trump's Supreme Court nominee. A woman and lifelong Democratic supporter and Hillary friend claimed that he attempted to rape her at a party forty years ago . When she finally had to tell her story under oath, she couldn't remember where or when the party was, wasn't sure if it was actually Cavanaugh or somebody else, or even if Cavanaugh was even at the party. But for the previous two weeks, the leaders of the Democrats had been at the televised hearings stating time and again that he was a rapist. This was not the nut cases, this was the party leaders. To no avail, the Republicans still got his confirmation thru, but the guys wife and kids will never recover from it. However, the reason that all of the wild, nonsensical bull... screamed daily by the left is believed by the unwashed masses of liberals, is the media, they are now just the journalistic arm of the Democrats and they have given up all semblance of neutrality. I just related how an innocent man was pilloried without a shred of evidence, yet Ellison, a top democrat from Wisconsin, has three female accusers, one of whom has video of him sexually assaulting her and the media refuses to mention the story. The mid term elections are due in November and for some reason the party in power usually lose seats - Obama lost a bunch in his first mid terms. It is possible, according to the polls, that the Republicans could lose the House, which would give the Democrats some power (Ipersonally don't think they will, but it's close). However if they do win the House back, they are not talking about how they will improve the economy etc, they are stating that they are going to impeach Trump, impeach Cavanaugh and destroy all of Trumps successes. Back to your point what kind of idiots would vote for that platform when Trump has made their lives so much better financially. I guess I could have made this a lot shorter by just saying "Beats me, I just don't know."

    Stallard, what I can't understand is how many Americans (including some of my relatives) are taken in by them. Can't just be the promises of free stuff, although that seems to work for Corbynites over here
  15. Hilary 2020

    What I think of her, her ilk and her so called DEMOCRATIC party probably qualifies as a hate crime.
  16. Brexit again -

    Well it appears the politicians have turned Brexit into a complete dog's dinner, with their Party and Remoaner antics. As I recall the referendum ballot form, the choice was to LEAVE or REMAIN, nothing on it about "a deal". Now, our weak kneed MPs are in a panic about a no deal Brexit, with some talking about cancelling article 50 and returning to the EU fold. But, as some EU Mandarins are now claiming, rightly imo; this would be treated as a new application, with the loss of our rebate and the possibility of a commitment to adopting the Euro; so even worse than before. The straw being grasped by the PM, to continue with membership of the customs union, denying any right to make seperate trade deals, still within the jurisdiction of the ECJ , would keep us in the EU in all but name, but without any political influence over it. So, time for the politicians to grow a pair, and prepare to crash out, with no deal, no payment and if necessary a hard border in Ireland.

  26. First woman on the moon

    First woman going to the Moon: "Houston, we have a problem." What? "Never mind, it doesn't matter" What's the problem? "Nothing" Just tell us "You know what the bloody problem is..."
