    So operation scare monger is still in full swing, with a continuation of the speculation advanced by the Cameron Gov prior to the referendum - which didn't impress the majority. Yes, a no deal will cause disruption, but it's the job of Gov to overcome it and move on. In the new scenario it will be in the interest of both the UK and EU to rectify adverse effects that will hit them both - so pragmatism will out.

    LibDems: Brexit is the biggest existential threat this country has ever known and we must do all we can to defeat it. We need a government of national unity, right now. Jeremy Corbyn: I agree, and as leader of Her Majety’s Loyal Opposition (snigger) I will step forward to lead that GNU and ensure no deal Brexit doesn’t happen. LibDems: Its not that big a threat.

    The world's deserts are shrinking, the saharahn desert has srunk by 700,000 Square kilometers in the last 30 years. According to the 'experts' we are facing a food shortage yet you do not need to be an expert to se how farming efficiency could be increased even in places like France.

    my clothing occupies a four drawer filing cabinet and a three drawer bedside size table in my back bedroom/computer area. The front bedroom contains i large wardrobe, three large chest of drawers and a few smallish cases all full of Mrs Sids stuff. would not surprise me if there were a tribe of lost pygmies living amongst the stuff in the back of the wardrobe. My clothes are divided into three lots. clothes that i am wearing, clothes that have been washed and ready for wearing, clothes that need to be washed. oh and a suit for weddings/funerals. Mens clothes are looked on by women as outdated five minutes after you have got them to a comfortable state. womens clothes are looke don by women as out of date five minutes after trying them on in the shop and buying them.

    It's an ocean racing yacht which, of course, was built without creating even a hint of a carbon footprint. Meanwhile the plane which she could potentially have travelled by will still be making the journey and producing exactly the same emissions as it would have if she had been on board. Of course here we are in the 21st century and blessed with technology like video conferencing which mean you can speak to an audience on the other side of the planet without actually leaving your house. It's called virtue signalling and is on a par with hipocrisy. I can't decide who is worse, the Blessed Greta or the adults who will be pretending to hang on to every word that issues from her uneducated mouth.

    Yes we looked a far more balanced side with Ratchford back. A good workmanlike performance doing all the little things right and three scoreline took care of itself. A great atmosphere in the ground with both sets of supporters being loud but like the team performance, the barmy army were slightly louder! Wembley here we come!!

    According to what i have looked up a "standard" car park space "should" be 2.4 M wide by 4.8 M in length minimum. (7.9 ft by 16ft in English money) Although as far as i am aware those figures are just a guideline. All car parking spaces are designed to get the most cars in the minimum space. (The old bums on seats methodology) 40 cars will take up 96 metres in width at 2.4metre per car. if you increase that width by 100mm (4") to 2.5 metres then those same forty cars will occupy 100 metres of space. the extra space taken up could easily accommodate an extra car at 2.4 metres width so 41 cars per 100 metres with about 1.5 metres spare space. what parking spaces do not take into account is the fact that you have doors on a car that need to be opened. My "car", whilst only 1.3 metres wide, has doors that open almost 90 degrees and the doors are quite wide. So even if i park in the exact centre of a parking space if some body parks close to the line in the next space then getting in the car is somewhat akin to putting size six shoes on size nine feet. (possible with a bit of patience, a shoe horn and plenty of Vaseline or so i am told) πŸ‘

    WBC do not have the vision or continuity to do anything of scale. I suspect your fears are correct and the Garden City will be as much a Garden City as Chapelford is an Urban Village. Worst of all is that they do not get what has been known for decades that you have to put in Public Transport from the start and subsidise it until that is no longer required. You can't expect people to move in using cars and change to less convenient buses later.

    I wouldn't waste my breath talking to any of them. They are, to a man/woman. as thick as two short planks and are proud to demonstrate the fact on a daily basis. The way they let the so-called journalists in the mainstream media run rings around them shows how thick they are, said "journalists" not being overly intelligent themselves. For the last 40 years we have allowed these charlatans to sit in parliament, being paid a good wage plus expenses, and rubber stamp legislation handed to them by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels without any further investigation, meanwhile taxing us to the hilt to pay for the EU project. Compare British state pensions to those that are paid in other EU countries for an example. Sack them all post Brexit and start with a new set.

    Let's hope The Argies don't get any fresh ideas of invading the islands. Imagine todays MP's ???? They can't agree on whether they want sugar or saccharine in their coffee !!! Maybe they would negotiate with Argentina; provided the decision followed a "democratic process", in other words, if Parliament voted for it.With multiple amendments and votes... over several months and then would follow an online petition calling for The Task Force to be halted after it hopefully gained over half a million signatures.Oh and their Brothers in Espana decided maybe........ just maybe...................... Gibraltar ???????(Naaaaaah ?????) Crazy far fetched ? History is littered with stories of Leaders putting their heads in the sand....

    I'm with you Asp, people laugh when I tell them that I'm 80 yrs old and I've never even smelled marijuana ! If you stood next to me smoking I'd probably think it was dirty socks or something! No kidding Asp, Bec and I are doing our favorite thing right now - watching black and white movies on the classic movie channel . "Action in the North Atlantic" with Raymond Massey and Humphrey Bogart ( Merchant Marine) fighting U Boats on the Murmansk run - I thought I saw you in the last scene. Good movie.

    Encouraging people to use drugs seems a strange way to combat crime! Alcohol and tobacco are considered problems, why add another? The reason that the cannabis lobby has so much traction is that most of the politicians, police, civil servants etc have all used it and still do, it has nothing to do with improving quality of life, it just means that they will no longer have to use a secret dealer. Several prominent users have admitted that a regular cannabis user can never operate at more than 40'% efficiency due to perpetual lethargy.

    There are already dangerous drugs in circulation IE: alcohol and tobacco; which make that much money in tax, HMG won't ban them; so if they add a few more, they're just being consistent !

    So if there is a no confidence win then the current government will have to be dissolved or a general election be called. similarly a vote of confidence in the next mob must be passed within 14 days or else there must be a general election. If the no confidence vote is defeated then another opposition member can again call for a vote of no confidence ad nauseum or until they run out of opposition members willing to risk a win. Even if there is a vote of no confidence then there is a precedence to call into question the validity of that vote on the grounds of misleading information supplied to the voters. (as claimed by brexiteers and remoaners) Seems our Mr Corbyn just wants to able to say he has been the prime minister and is prepared to use any tactics to achieve that aim

    What is amazing is that all these climate change facts are "proved" from records that only go back about 200 years when the earth has been around for billions of years. I should imagine the earth's cyclic changing tilt on it's axis will affect the climate periodically. Maybe we are just travelling through earth's natural cycle over which we have & never will have control.

    Having watched a fantastic prog like "SERENGETI" , shows how nature designed the system - the plant eaters (which probably produce most gas) are kept at sustainable population levels by the availabilty of food and the activity of carnivores, in other words the food chain. Unfortunately, the animal that has secured the position of top of the food chain, appears to have an insatiable appetite for earth's resources, in it's quest for "growth"; and the more humans reproduce, the more they exploit the capacity of the planet. So whether we become vegans or not, the basic problem is, there are just too many of us.

    Looks like McDonald is actually appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe; as he's now moved into comedy. He claims that Labour will vote BoJo out of Office in a vote of confidence, and Corbyn will roll up at the Palace to claim the PM's job ! Labour said it would honour the referendum result in the G/Election; it voted for article 50 (which is now the legal default position) to Brexit (after two extensions) on 31st Oct. They've played politics with it for three years, getting absolutely nowhere; so now it's up to BoJo to take us past the 31st Oct and finally put an end to this Parliamentary nonsense.

    It is however about time that we stopped telling the EU how nice we will be. It is now time for them to be in the dark about how prepared the UK will be and the measures we will take against Ireland. The EU knows that Parliament will not agree the backstop but they will not rethink, to behave like that shows a contempt for democracy. August in mainland Europe is just a holiday month so maybe they can still wake up in time.

    Yes, but built to some other firms requirements. think along the lines of redecorating a house you have just bought. It may be perfectly well decorated but not your tastes so you redecorate. Or you could liken it to having a shiny new council offices when there are plenty of perfectly adequate office spaces available that only need a minimum fettling up.

    I use the on-line prescription service for me and mrs sid. login using my details and my medicines come up on screen. tick the boxes for those that i need. press order prescription and confirm. This then is signed electronically by the doctors and sent to whatever chemist i have chosen. after that i can arrange with the chemists to have them delivered to my door or pick them up myself whichever. Basically it is like handing in the repeat prescription form to the doctors but without having to leave the house and saves on paper. The only time i have to see the doctor or practice nurse is for an annual health check up or a flu jab. or the odd occasion when i am actually "ill" or have a concern over an unexpected pain such as a groin strain or similar.

    What a difference a Ratchford makes. Stefan Ratchford returned from injury - probably earlier than expected - and played his part in a good all round team performance against an in-form Hull side that started as favourites in the Challenge Cup semi-final at Bolton. Charnley was missing through injury but Warrington were much improved on recent performances. Wire opened the scoring on 7 minutes with a try by Bryson Goodwin and, although Hull then took the lead with a penalty followed by a converted try, another try by Currie converted by Ratchford gave the Wire 10-8 advantage at the break. Another try by Toby King early in the second half, again converted by Ratchford, took Wire further ahead and, although Hull came back strongly scoring another converted try at 67 minutes, Philbin scored an opportunistic try on 79 minutes, also converted by Ratchford, to seal a much needed victory for the Warrington Wolves. The Warrington faithful were loud in their support for the team, and there were few of the errors that have marred recent performances. Let's hope we can keep this level up for the rest of the season, and bag a trophy! Come on you Wire!! πŸ†

    A good game to watch,very few handling errors,despite the change in the weather or maybe because of it. Very little for the ref to do and a quiet day for the video ref as well. Another plus was that Robbie Hunter "I'm going to wander all over the pitch prattling during the game" Paul was heard and not seen. Despite his best efforts to find fault even Jonathan Davies had some grudging praise for Warrington at the end. (Well he had been quiet for most of the second half and i suppose he had to justify his fee for being there.)

    I know Steven Broomhead has already had a go at her publicly for saying what she said. I'm sure he'll follow it up with the same level of criticism for Brian Maher for admitting he had absolutely no idea about the most basic detail of the massive project he was voting in favour of. 😈

Hopefully the Secretary of State will intervene and ensure it gets a fair hearing. In 40 years of reporting I have never seen a major planning application rejected and then be re-submitted and approved by the same committee - I use the word "same" loosely as the make-up of the committee has changed considerably in the space of eight months - which again is unusual.

    Quite the opposite Con: a "gung ho" posture is precisely what we don't want. The UK fell for the bait, if that's what it was; Spain and the EU ducked it and now we've asked the Yanks for Naval support in the Gulf, and guess what - they've told us to get our own ships - so much for the special relationship. Now, the only safe way to de-esculate this mess, will be to do a swap with Iran - we release their tanker and they release ours - sorted. The Yanks have a Carrier task force in the area, with a huge offensive capability, but it seems we don't wish to get involved and are now trying to arrange an EU (pro Iran agreement force) to protect free movement of shipping. Perhaps if we hadn't involved ourselves in international sanctions in the first place and stuck to looking after ourselves, we wouldn't get our fingers burnt. Just a post script: believe we've sent UK troops to Mali, now what's Mali got to do with us ?

    The irony in all this Latch; is that we're getting rid (hopefully) of one master (the EU) only to fall into the clutches of another (the US). The UK is no longer a world player, the only thing keeping us on the UN security council are our nukes. If we take Germany as an example, they've underpaid there contributions to NATO and sheltered under the US nuclear umbrella; whilst becoming the number one economic entity in Europe. So perhaps we need to decide precisely where our best interests lie and start putting the UK FIRST.

    Lets call a spade a spade The Iranians have timed this perfectly, we have no functioning parliament at the moment until the new Prime Minister is installed and has appointed his cabinet. Once we have had time to sort this domestic reshuffle then I reckon they will back off having had their fun at tweaking The Lions Tale. This situation should act as a wake up call and make us realise in no uncertain terms we need a major defence review/overhaul before any other Nations realise we are at this moment totally unprepared for any kind of serious conflict(if they haven't already) North Korea,China,Argentina as well as Iran must realise Maggie Thatcher is no longer around and neither are our superior Armed Forces. We must treat this as a priority as at the moment a few lightly armed speedboats and one helicopter have got us scuppered !!!! Sod all this Brexit lark and the obvious distractions it has created After 31 October... The silly games can finally come to a conclusion. And then we can get down to the serious business of running our own Nation and regaining our Pride. As Solid International defence is not and never will be negotiable.

    The sanctions were imposed by the EU because of the use of chemical weapons by Syria against its own people. The US cannot cause us to impose sanctions. Those EU sanctions were imposed by the Government of Gibraltar but they needed UK forces co-operation. The sanctions affecting the ship in Gibraltar are not against Iran. Iran's action against a UK flagged ship is unlawful and tantamount to piracy. Your comments about hybrid warfare are wrong, the use of disinformation and covert actions against a state as employed by Russia are what hybrid warfare is.
