  1. The seven dwarfs have been told they can only gather in groups of six. One of them isn't happy......🤭

  2. Absolutely disgraceful, freedom of speech & freedom of expression are being vilified by the very people who claim to support both. The country is becoming censored by minority groups,each with its own axe to grind while the silent majority watches in meek bewilderment.

  3. You know as a kid i was always wondering why he was called hamburger gessler. it was only as i got older that i found out the real name was land burger gessler...🤭 I always felt sorry for the guards in those shows. Every week those poor lads would come rushing into the room waving their swords and such around only to be killed off by the hero, even when it was ten to one in their favour. Make you wonder why anybody would want to be a guard in those days. how to tell a cultured person. They are the ones who can listen the william tell overture without automatically thinking "HI HO

  4. Doubt the woke BBC would report it anyway. Apparently Nigel was on the same boat, but again, doubt they'll quote him. The French have no shame, they proved it in 1940. 😠

  5. Ah robin hood. "dah da da dada dah da da daaah, sproing whoosh boing," and cue the music. they do show that on talking pictures as well on certain days. They do quite a few of the old series that used to inspire us kids to go out and try and maim each other with home made bows or swords made from pailings nicked out the fence Then there was the likes of ivanhoe and lancelot which was responsible for many a mop or brush to go missing to be used as a lance along with the bin lid as a shield. Some of those games between us kids would make the battle of Hastings seem like a re-enactment

  6. Historical accuracy? when has that ever mattered in a Hollywood film, or even accuracy of any kind. According to hollywood the americans have won every war they have ever fought in against all-comers from across the galaxy and beyond. They have to be "seen" to be doing the "right"thing when it comes to pandering to whatever the latest "politically correct" trend is. last year it was women actors, this year it is black actors, next year it will no doubt be chinese actors. no doubt at some future event it will be black female transgender chinese dwarf cyborgs or something similar.

  7. Yes I agree about Ratchford. He is very versitile but in my opinion full back is where he's best, but with Ashton coming through so well I can possibly see him becoming a ball playing second rower next season in the mould if Sinfield.... I think at centre and in the halves he just isn't effective enough

  12. This is purely to give anyone with questions a, real life account of the effect of covid19. Our cousins families have just gone thru the covid19 experience. The two families live in two adjacent homes. The mom and dad, Sandy and Tommy, both in their late 70's tested positive for the virus and their son, daughter in law and great grandson also tested positive. Tommy and Sandy, who are normal older people, who don't exercise, but have no medical problems other than the usual cholesterol and blood pressure problems called their experience a " a pain in the ass". They had flu system

  13. Well,we are /have been told how closely related Covid 19 is to the common cold of which we can all have multiple visitations every year. The only way humanity has been able to deal with the common cold is by soldiering on with gritted teeth & if Covid is going to be a regular visitor that is the way we will have to deal with covid. It is unthinkable that the human race will need to keep isolating with every such covid outbreak otherwise herd immunity will not happen & ,if the common cold & covid are so closely related ,how do they hope to find a cure anyway ?

  15. The problem is, that these institutions have been taken over by woke liberals, who command high office in organisations like the BBC. in a more authoritarian Country, they would be purged and their influence eradicated, unfortunately not possible in our liberal democracy. However, it should be possible to privatise the BBC and remove it's mandate for such events. Apparently, Liverpool are showing some sense in response to the BLM pressure, instead of tearing down statues and street names; they are adding (presumably factual) historical footnotes to those streets named after historical fig

  16. You may have Sid, cos Nigel's been out there for weeks. Seems the HO are finally getting with it, 10 migrants that landed on an Essex beach have been IMMEDIATELY deported to France and Germany. Complaints from the snowflakes about the risks of Corvid virus in sending them back, doesn't seem to apply to the risks of them arriving it seems. 😠 😷

  19. Seems Hollywood now has diversity calculator for movie awards, so that films with all white casts, like "Dunkirk" and "1917" will not be included in the awards ceremony. So I guess we'll see even less historical accuracy from dream land. 😠

  25. Are we living in some sort of fantasyland where government ministers can snap their fingers and say 10 million people a day will be tested with the result known in minutes? Even the most innumerate amongst us will realise that this is physically impossible even if the technology exists, which it doesn't. Just as laughable is the claim by the BMJ that this non-existent test will cost £100Billion. How can they possibly calculate the cost of a non-existent test? Then we have the idea of "Covid Marshalls" being deployed to ensure that we all behave like good little boys and girls. There is no

  26. The cabinet Office has put this out recently: From Monday 14 September, you must not meet with people from other households socially in groups of more than 6. This will apply indoors and outdoors, including in private homes. This change will simplify and clarify the rules on social gatherings, so they are easier to understand and easier for the police to enforce. There will be a limited number of exemptions. COVID-19 Secure venues, such as places of worship, restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups.

  27. I read it as telling Dublin they are in the last chance saloon and telling the to stick their fishing rights wishes in a place the sun don't shine. As for state aid rules we always had stronger rules that the others anyway so that is probably a fig leaf affair to be dealt with using weasel words or bad things will happen to your friends in Ireland.

  29. Great isn't it? I heard on a Media Show recently that it is a family firm with only three full time employees. The dad thought that TV execs were wrong to say that no-one will watch black and white any more. He was correct and there is a cult following amongst the older audience.

  30. Pray, pray, that communism/socialism, mob rule fails in November. Donald Trump is in the top three Presidents that the US has ever had and the dipshit Obama is next to last - and I have met him ! I have desparately hoped for all of my life that a true businessman, not a politician would show how a country should be run and he has done it. He doesn't care about polls, he only wants results and result that mean jobs and security. Obama pissed around for four years, while ISIS chopped off heads every night on tv. Trump ended that in nine months! And produced the greatest economy in US hist

  31. Asp, the problem is not as simple your interpretation of the CDC figures and those don't align with the European experience. In Europe 23% of those dying after a positive Covid test did not have pre-existing conditions. However the problem is that the pre-existing conditions are made life threatening by the way that Corona thickens the blood and does all sorts of things. Many of the 23% will have had a tendency that was exacerbated by the virus which they knew nothing about. These simple headline analyses are sometimes too simplistic.

  32. Just read a report of a hard luck story of a woman from Ethiopia, being floated by a woke charity, Freedom from Torture; charting her travel from Ethiopia to the UK. At no point does she mention how she paid the traffickers and claims ignorance of the law as to why she never appealed for asylum in Italy or France, eventually arriving in the UK in the back of an HGV from Calais. The charity launched an asylum appeal on her behalf, which was refused - at which point, imo, she should have been deported. However, she then played her ace, by giving birth; which now gave her a new case for asy

  33. There is no "cure" any vaccination given is to help the body to lessen the effects of the viral infection and reduce the risk of more serious complications that can be caused by it through partial immunity as i understand it. Of course i am not a medical expert having only done basic first aid forty odd years ago as a boy scout. Great if you want somebody who can fashion a sling out of two lengths of string and a plastic bag but not much use for anything really serious.....⚰️

  34. I must admit the scoreline does do the game justice. Wakefiled put up a really good fight throughout considering their injury and other problems. They pushed warrington defence a few times close to the line but were held out to warringtons credit. If they ever get past their injury problems and manage to field a fit team then they will be very difficult to beat.

  35. Honesty. With no apologies to anyone ! The startling fact of life is that, throughout history, labor and its supporters, Democrats and their supporters, have been wrong on every single issue, they voted against Churchill for Gods sake ! There is no doubt, if you have any intellect and balls ( which eliminates Obs,), you are a conservative, if you are wandering in the wilderness, puzzled, you are a Laborite or Democrat. Just found a new book by Dale Carnegie, called how to win friends and influence people, anyone heard of it ?

  36. So how have we gone from being terrified of a pandemic where people were dying every day, to being terrified of a casedemic where hardly anybody is dying but we are told that thousands of people have, or have had, the virus even if they haven't had any symptoms? The government has got itself into a situation where it's telling us one minute that we should remain terrified and the next minute that there's nothing to worry about and we should get back to normal. Then rinse and repeat. We can't sit out in the fresh air at a cricket match, but we can join in mass demonstrations and marches where p

  38. Time this was ended for non-UK citizens ? Seems the HO are busy trying to deport illegal migrants under the Dublin Convention, (just another 4,000 to go); but are being confounded by spurious legal actions by the HR lawyers. I believe these HR lawyers are funded by legal aid paid for by UK tax-payers - so is it time this anomaly was ended ? 😠

  40. Seems there has been high cases of Covid infection at food processing plants; but no mention of any risks to the food processed ? The rationale from the WHO, is that many workers are immigrants on poor wages, so cannot afford to stay off work; they also live in large groups in small houses and travel to and from work together, so are an ideal target for the virus. Sounds like we need testing before they enter the factory, and in due course they could apply such testing to schools. 😷

Surprised they have not yet banned drag queens for being men portraying women, but then again that probably comes under the protection of the LBGTXYZ (+/- a few letters) umbrella.

  44. If you consider the amount of handling that any shop product goes through before it arrives ON the shelf, let alone afterwards by the customers, then it is surprising that the infection rate is so low. One item could be handled by up to five people before being shipped to a warehouse. There it could again be handled by four or five people before being shipped to the retailer. two or three staff members at the retailer could then handle that item before it appears on the shelf. after which a dozen customers could have handled it before if it sold to you, after being handled by another memb

But I suppose with covid the issue was sidelined ,It was after all relatively quiet until this recent influx. But now it's time for someone to make a name for themselves and take the bull by the horns before the end of December.

  48. But the EU Countries aren't doing anything to stop them landing in Greece, Italy or Spain; so they'll just walk to Calais again and hop on a rubber boat. WE, have to take responsibility for protecting OUR borders, and imo that means not allowing them to land here, and those that do, to drive them back through the channel tunnel. Post 2020, deport them to their Countries of origin by plane. Meanwhile, Parliament need to review all legislation being used by the HR lawyers to confound deportations. It's time this joke ended and HMG got a grip. 😠
