    I have a signed van dyke painting at home. I tell you Dick van Dyke is a better actor than painter.🤭 Art is what you make of it. Three black dots arranged in a triangle on a white background and labelled as a polar bear in snow. If done by me would be laughed at by everyone..if it was done by say Picasso or one of the other well known painters, it would be lauded as a masterpiece and fought over by people who have more money than several banks could count. I once heard a very humorous description of the difference between art and lewd paintings. if it has urns it is art, if it has cherubs it is art, if it has a potted plant, on a stand it just scrapes through as art, anything else is just lewd pictures. Years ago spray painting on a wall was classed as vandalism, now it sells for thousands of pounds and is classed as art. I understand what stallard is saying. it is not the art as such he is saying is a hoax but the pretension of the people who will go into raptures over a certain wine that to your average person would be just fizzy vinegar in a fancy bottle. Sniffs glass,takes a sip of wine, swills round mouth, stares meaningly at ceiling and then says,"oh it a chateau naff de pope, 1820 (or twenty five past six at the latest), grown from grapes on the sunny side of the hill in the vineyard situated seven foot eight inches from the friary of st Herbert. stomped by a left handed leprechaun with a squint and bottled in hand blown glass from the desserts of africa with a cork specially imported from the sacred cork trees of the outer Himalayas and harvested using ancient techniques known only to three ancient masters of the temple ding dong in the valley of Avonk a ling. Am i right?" "nah mate fifty pence a bottle at bargain booze"

    Following on from the private prosecution brought against our esteemed Mr Johnson , will it also mean than any politician can be held accountable for any statement made which is not carried out to the letter ? A PM or even a political party could even be held accountable for failing to carry out it's manifesto to the letter. What come across to me is nothing more than mud slinging against a prospective PM from an agent of the Remain side which was no less guilty of romantic fiction during the referendum campaign.

    I find your attempts at censorship rather confirms Observer's disquiet at the extension of PC philosophy which this ban, which has yet to affect any ad at all, represents. It is a clear and distressing reduction in our liberties in an area which is beyond what I believe should be the remit of the ASA, namely social engineering. Free speech is being eroded by policies such as this as well as commenters who divert any expression of an opinion by constructing personal attacks on those who express them; in Obs' case usually hoping to start a discussion. He doesn't want you to agree, he wants you to discuss - it is what this place is for.

    Naah PJ I'm not offended by the ruling at all....... I find it all rather laughable to be honest that we live in such a bonkers society these days that people feel the 'need' to look at something as daft as some tv adverts and say 'hey this needs to be stopped as it might hurt some little gentle wallflowers feelings'. Most people probably never even gave it a second though until someone with nothing better to do made a big deal of it. Bit like the 1000's of numpties who have been complaining to OFCOM this week about not liking something on Love Island. Durh...well stop blummin' watching it then lol. PS Mr Dizzy can't parallel park our new car..... I think he's still quite offended by me laughing at him though (but hey I can't park it either shhh)

    So more scare tactics to put fear and mass panic into peoples minds and yes a ploy to either make us (the UK people) think 'Shite maybe we'd best not leave after all then'. Probably a ploy to put fear into all other countries who may be quietly thinking that they may leave too. Such a large proportion of people here and around the world are diabetic and NEED insulin so no wonder they are trying this tactic to keep us all REMAIN. The more scare stories I see the more determined I am that we should LEAVE and put 2 fingers up to the lot of them. YES WE WILL ALL BE OK...IF WE CAN SURVIVE 2 ATROCIOUS WORLD WARS AND THE REST WE CAN BLOODY SURVIVE BREXIT !

    it does make you wonder then how much worse off the EU will be without the UK given the speed of which this bit of legal hocus pocus was put in place. I suppose there will me a more vigorous campaign from both sides now to support/denounce it. Saw a bit on the news yesterday when they were interviewing people in runcorn. First one they interviewed came out with the statement that they were worried and then admitted that they had not voted in the referendum. That being the case they have no say in the matter. Their excuse was that they were not sure about the issues. second guy interviewed ran a business and had voted, he wasn't worried as he had little to do with the EU as such. Nearly all his business was with American companies and he stated that he was seeing an increase if anything in his trade. in all the press coverage I have seen the focus has been on how bad leaving will be or how bad such a deal will be. Not one on how good things could be, and as always it is speculation. We will not know until it happens is the way to look at it. Then good or bad deal with it.

    Note I said attempts so I did not overestimate your effect as you suggest however you consistently try to stop people having opinions that you don't agree with. That is what PC is about: controlling the language in order to control the ideas that can be considered, you do it all of the time.

    And finally....... An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a barstool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender: “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?” The bar immediately falls absolutely silent. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says: “Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things…The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat, the bouncer is a blonde girl, I'm a six-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate, the woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weightlifter and the lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler. Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy. Do you still wanna tell that blonde joke?” The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head and mutters: “Well, no! Not if I'm gonna have to explain it five bloody times!"

    It's completely bonkers. If I see say an advert of a woman unable to park it doesn't upset me in the slightest just as seeing a woman hoovering when the man just sits there. 'Hurtful gender stereotyping' my a*se. People who dream these new rulings up or are easily offended need to get a grip on life and stop being so blummin pathetic.

    97 eh, only time it gets that warm here is when Mrs sid has the heating turned up to turbo. I could sit out back on my home-made bench seat with a black grouse in one hand and the brolley in the other,( don't want to water down the drink) and listen to the night-life in the area. the low drone of the planes coming into liverpool, the occasional whine of the ambulance sirens and the dull throb of the police helicopter overhead. darn magpie still chattering away on the roof, neighbours barbie going well, now into the screaming drunks stage, that will need more than a few paracetamol in the morning and must make a mental note to get more slug pellets, considering how slow those buggers are they are really hard to hit with those pellets. oh well pot that for a game of soldiers off inside to thaw out and watch the test card channel.

    Depending on which source you use the £350M/week figure is near correct. Actually in 2014, which was the latest figure available in 2016, the gross contribution was £361M/week which is what the UK was giving the EU. They then subtract the rebate, public and private sector receipts which give £161M/week nett figure. If the sign on the side of the bus had said "We give the EU £160M per week" do you suppose it would have changed Leave voters minds by an iota? It may possibly have changed the minds of some remain voters instead! All this will come out in the open if the court case goes ahead. The shyster who has opened this can of worms may live to regret it when his own dirty dealings are revealed to the world 🤨.

    He should have just told her she had two days to live with her symptoms. Given that doctors often make a diagnosis on what the patient tells them initially. Wonder how she manages at the dentist? Last time i saw a doctor he was surprised I was a patient of his. He had to send somebody down to the basement to find my notes.

    Seems Mzz Krankie is calling for another (once in a lifetime?) referendum for Scottish Independence. The SNP are so keen on Independence, but have done their upmost to deny Independence from the EU for the UK. Suppose we just have to hope TM won't be involved, given her record on Brexit.

    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.

    - everywhere; but not a drop to spare ! Seems were destined to run out of water over the next 25 years according to the EA, if you've just received your water rates, you may be excused some anger. The UK is noted for being rained on, and although a drier climate is predicted, it would seem the starting point for the EA would be to increase our collection and save capabilty IE: increase the number of reservoirs; combine this with hydro-electric schemes to produce green energy (two birds with one stone); establish a national network for water transfer throughout the UK.

    Australia spent a small fortune a few years ago building desalination plants because of dire warnings of future drought. And then the rain came back. However, as is the way with such things, Australia does have a cycle of drought conditions so many of these plants are in use, although not many are operating at more than minimum capacity. On last night's BBC Northwest news programme there were 2 items about water. One of them was about the impending disasterous drought we are going to suffer this year, or maybe next. The other one was about how unprepared we are for the impending disasterous floods we are going to suffer in the near future. Come on BBC, one scare story at a time please 😏

    Sorry folks, United had just lost to Arsenal and my mind was in a tortured state! I was trying to compare the non-stressed life of the 50''s, 60's and 70's (at least for me) to today's daily turmoil and asking for opinions. Apparently, I made the mistake of starting with a very cute line about us all being so old, that we must be funeral planning ! It must have been so cute that it overshadowed my original intention and made a life of it's own. Damn, this is not getting much better. Still, on that subject, my wife signed me up for cremation policy, it was listed at the funeral home as a Fire Sale and that's actually true !

    It really is at odds with the Peoples Vote of 2016 ,that all of these defectors' main gripe is to overturn the result of that Referendum. Once the result of that was declared Parliament ,as one, should have had two goals.....firstly running the normal everyday business of Parliament & ,secondly, uniting to get the best outcome possible for Britain as of 29th March 2019. MPs have no business acting out their own agendas.

    Your right Latch, but our hand wringing liberal politicians are already squirming with excuses for these nutters. The same people who demand votes for sixteen year olds, now saying she was groomed at a vunerable age. So even if they imprison these fanatics, they just turn prison into a university for their doctrine and infect others. Seems the best solution would be to hand them over to the Yanks, who can lock them up in Guantanamo and throw away the key - sorted.

    So they did, but they are still going to build the new Juke and Qashqai in the UK and if you talk to the people who work at Nissan they will tell you the real reason they will not make the X- Trail in the UK is because of lack .of capacity. When I was involved in courier business one of the regular jobs we had was delivering pharmaceuticals that came into Manchester airport every night from the USA among other things. Now the USA is not in the EU, occasionally there was a delay of an hour or two but there was never ever any disruption
  42. 3 points
    Quite right PJ, that isn't what happened. Nissan pulled out of the model being built anywhere in Europe and pulled it back to Japan because of the way the EU is behaving on Diesel. They have said this quite clearly but a certain kind of person still wants to scaremonger ...

    I was quite shocked the other day when It was announced that nearly 5000 people commit suicide each year and a large and growing proportion of these deaths were young children that were subjected to online abuse. I have my daughter, her husband and their two children living with us at the moment while their house is being refurbished I now I can see first hand how much their life revolves around their mobile phones. I don't know how typical this is but every single day, these two (aged 11 and 13) literally have their faces in their phones from first thing in the morning to last thing at night and are totally oblivious to anything being said to them or happening around them. Now I'm no expert but I feel that anyone who spends the majority of their life online are far more likely to be affected mentally when things start going wrong in their virtual world. Then because they've lost some of the ability to communicate with the people around them, things can build up that might lead to more serious issues like suicide. Bill

    i think that the punishment of six months is about the right sentence. Six months in a cage outside gatwick with a sign detailing their crimes and a barrow load of rotten fruit and veg supplied daily for airport users to throw. (got to feed them something for six months) Hosed down twice a week to keep the smell down and provide fresh drinking water. Cruel and unusual punishment, well yes but it is only for six months and it will save the cost of a prison guard, electricity for lighting heating and also provide some much needed entertainment for delayed passengers. Be more of a draw than some magician in a box anyhow.🧙‍♂️🤔

    PJ, your ignorance is showing - too much BBC maybe? You really would make a fine Democrat, no real ideas or productive policies, all you have are, childish personal attacks. Do you realize that in all of the discussions on this forum, you have never once advanced one grain of factual argument, it's all venom driven drivel. Counselling? Off on a short vacation folks, leave in an hour and it's colder'n a gold diggers ass in Montana - 45 degrees but they have heat in the casino, so I'll leave PJ to y'all.

    No I haven't ever witnesses anyone dressed in 'the manner' committing a crime etc and I never said I had done....I have never said their dress code should be banned either I merely pointed out that it freaks me out a little and I explained why too. Yes I agree that someone with a hoodie pulled down over their face blah blah blah would probably make me feel a tad uneasy too as they often do....but why shouldn't I say if something makes me feel uneasy if it does....it's who I am and how things make me feel. Anyway you are clearly on a mission to make us all feel bad for our views or feelings and are throwing in the 'racist' card but I'm NOT being racist...I'd feel the same if you walked the streets with your face and body fully covered so I had no idea who you were, if you were male or female, what you were carrying......I mean come on even you must wonder sometimes.

    is there any possibility of confining the brexit table tennis to one topic. it is becoming rather confusing to try and figure out what the original topic was about with several topics containing references to other topics which then contain references to this topic. the votes have been counted the result is in like it or not it is done with as far as us plebs are concerned. it is now down to HMG to sort out what form it takes. Hard, Soft or no deal whichever it is we will have to accept it as negotiated (or not in the case of no deal). will it affect me personally? yes it will but how i will not know until it actually happens. I have learned over the years that i can only worry about so much before the brain gives up and takes a holiday, so worrying about what MAY happen is rather pointless. Remember for every expert that says a thing is so there are an equal number who will say the opposite.
