    Judging by the PM's address tonight, she's trying to get Corbyn on board a deal, no doubt, in order to spread the blame. However, imo she doesn't need to try; Corbyn has clearly deliberately turned this saga into a mess, so he could blame it all on the Tories at a G/Election. But the fact is, every Remoaner MP is responsible for not accepting the referendum decision to LEAVE, and thus culpable.

    Seems the NHS is suffering from "border" problems - the Welsh are using Chester NHS Trust and allegedly not paying for the service. On the other side, seems the English have been using Welsh chemists to get "free" prescriptions. Whilst we've accused our "National" Health Service of being International, I thought our Nation was the whole of the United Kingdom thus the "National" Health Service should be a common service throughout. With different "Trusts" we've got different policies and even IT systems that can't communicate with each other; so perhaps devolution of Health Services is a bad idea and we should have a really "National" Health Service ?

    We too use subtitles for this reason. The producers do it deliberately to evoke reality apparently, but that doesn't explain the music that they add to annoy us. It is a major problem and the broadcasters do not care.

    Had a nasty experience whilst trying on clothes in a shop. I tell you when those lift doors opened I don't know who got the biggest shock, me or the three women waiting to get in.πŸ™ˆπŸ‘€πŸ˜―

    Simple, only need to look at how often men buy clothes compared to how often women buy clothes.( compare the size of the "men's" department to the "women's" department in any store) Men will buy clothes when absolutely necessary, eg their clothes have gone past the old rag stage or have reached the fit where they touch stage. A woman will buy clothes specially to go and buy new clothes in and some will even buy new clothes instead of washing the old clothes that she bought last week and only wore when tried on in the shop. Knowing this manufacturers will cater to their biggest market, women and so make sure that every possible size and shape is catered for. For the male market the diesel method usually applies. eg diesel do.🀭 "Now where did i put that tin hat" β›‘οΈπŸŽ©πŸŽ“πŸ§’πŸ‘’

    Here is a little trick I use when buying clothes. It would appear that it is a little known fact amongst the aged but shops have things called changing rooms. I take in a selection of garments I like the look of and, get this, try them on for size, comfort etc. If I am happy I buy them , if not I don’t. You should try it, it’s all the rage and has been since the advent of the clothes shop.

    Almost all shops in town have a different "Version" of what they assume are correct sizes! It took me ages to work out but I've a theory that it's dependant on which country they were manufactured in. I now only shop where changing rooms offer me the options that some stores don't. Oh and I've just discovered the magic option of Braces !!! So a larger more comfy waist is my size of choice

    Mother Nature Fights Back I read this just now on BBC news page and decided to share..... A suspected rhino poacher has been trampled on by an elephant then eaten by a pride of lions in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Accomplice poachers told the victim's family that he had been killed by an elephant on Tuesday. Relatives notified the park ranger. A search party struggled to find the body but eventually found a human skull and a pair of trousers on Thursday. The managing executive of the park extended his condolences to the family. "Entering Kruger National Park illegally and on foot is not wise," he said. "It holds many dangers and this incident is evidence of that." Kruger National Park has an ongoing problem with poaching and there remains a strong demand for rhino horn in Asian countries. On Saturday, Hong Kong airport authorities seized the biggest haul of rhino horn in five years, valued at $2.1m (Β£1.6m).

    What I find amazing about this is: the EU insisted on reduced quotas, then sent their fishing fleets into UK waters, making a load of UK trawlers redundant. Now, they're basically saying, still allow EU trawlers into UK waters (cos you haven't got enough), then we'll sell you the fish (plus a tariff) ! Seems the simple answer would be to enlarge OUR fishing fleet and create indigenous employment.

    I'll bet his wasn't the only picture that was being used. If it had been a picture of Maggie, would we be hearing the shrieks of outrage from the usual suspects or applause?

    I always wonder why the people who send their 3 year old children on a 50 mile daily trek to fetch undrinkable water don't move their home and possessions to the source of the water?

    I think Confused is right. The problem is young 'arty' producers and directors who think artistic creativeness is more important than substance. I'm tired of peering at the tv screen while shadowy figures flit around, doing things they could easily do with the lights on. I guess they are the same guys who show minutes long shots of the crowd or managers during a soccer game!

    .Looks like Yvette Cooper and Co are trying to cobble together a Bill to prevent a "no deal" Brexit, which, in effect, will mean no Brexit - so much for honouring the will of the people.

    I always record shows and just fast forward the adverts. Some shows are a nightmare with 4/5 min advert breaks every 15 mins especially the BGT / I'm a Celeb shows.And Downton Abbey was famous for it ! But satelite channels are almost as bad and I've already paid once with my subscription. Netflix is a breath of fresh air with it's ad free shows( including every episode of the Line of Duty series)

    i think ruthless would be more appropriate. They played as a team rather than going for individual "glory" Always somebody ready for an offload. mind you austin's outrageous dummies paid dividends. also must have had a better brand of glue on the hands this week as all the passes seemed to be caught without incident.

    funny that wonder if any of the people who came up with the idea read this forum, because i am sure that i suggested something similar a while back (probably in one of the "twenty's plenty posts" a few years ago). will have to have a trawl through and see if i can find it. So that being the case can i get some sort of royalties from that.

    But Obs the Lords are far less objectionable than the Commons and Momentum and the lefty followers cannot touch them. They could be our only saviour from the excess of the coming leninist coup!

    It's all very well saying "change the system", but the sad truth is that whoever we vote for the same useless politicians get elected. They had one job...................................😣

    Me too Latchie, suspenders (braces) have set me free, I even wear them with my golf shorts. I just had to get used to wearing my shirt outside of my pants so no one knows my secret. However, the point of my post was "how come a woman can look like Humpty Dumpty, but can still buy perfectly fitting clothes off he rack", while men need a personal tailor to get clothes that fit.

    Possibly Dave, in 1945; written on the back of an envelope by the Labour Party, who didn't believe they could win, thus the manifesto was extremely ambitious. The surprise was, not that they won that election, but that they actually tried to impliment their manifesto. Alas, that was an age of conviction politics, where MPs actually believed in objectives, before careers and personal ambition took over.

    Maybe this is the reason our distant ancestors walked about virtually naked Sid ,with just a buffalo skin for warmth.
