    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 Majetyโ€™s Loyal Opposition (snigger) I will step forward to lead that GNU and ensure no deal Brexit doesnโ€™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 Mens clothes are looked on by women as outdated five minutes after you have got them to a comfortable state. womens clothes are looke don by women as out of date five minutes after trying them on in the shop and buying them.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) ๐Ÿ‘

    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.

    Ship sat on the Atlantic seabed for over 100 years rotting away! Divers who have been down to look at Titanic seem surprised that it's rusting away. I despair.๐Ÿ˜

    It was on the main Liverpool to Stockport line until the ship canal was built which cut the line in two. Hence the high level bridge was built at Latchford Locks. and the new high level line came into being Joining from the original line at Bank Quay.Which meant a new station where the Cantilever Garden Centre was.The old station fell into disrepair until my Dad got it in 1942 and set about turning it into a wonderful family home.

    It's revealing how recent climate alarmists are such narcissists. Back in the 1970s the alarmists would pick a number like "70 years" which would give them a fair chance of having kicked the bucket before their fantasies could be shown to be garbage. Todays alarmists seem to want to be around when they are found out to be fruit-cakes in 10 to 12 years time. Charlie is one who seems to take perverse delight in predicting the earth's demise sometime in the very near future "if we don't do something immediately", but for some reason nobody calls him out on it. Or maybe it's because everyone knows he's nuts and ignores him.

    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.

    I think another way of looking at softening attitudes towards drugs is that decriminalisation will eventually lead to the end of criminal gang involvement. How much crime is drug related ?

    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

    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.

    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.

    Might look this one up to see if there is an electronic version of the book anywhere. Sort of thing i employ with spam emails. Any that purport to have money going spare because of a dead husband/relative usually get a reply from me offering condolences. One of my better ones was the "i have a case full of money in storage" e,ail that i replied to advising that it was destined for some Columbian drug cartel and infected with a deadly virus and was not to be opened under any circumstances, followed by a detailed plan for safe disposal of the crate and it's contents. another was one that wanted me to spend the money to carry on her late husbands Christian deeds. my reply was that as a practising Satanist it would not really be appropriate. but she had my condolences on her loss.

    To be registered as a British flagged ship it is only necessary for the owner to be incorporated in an EEA country. The Master can be any nationality provided that he/she holds a UK Master's Certificate of Competency (many Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi officers study at UK colleges and sit the exams with the UK MCA) or a Certificate of Equivalent Competency (which involves holding a Master's CoC of a country recognised by the UK MCA as being equivalent to the UK Master's CoC, and also demonstrating English language competency, and may also involve an exam on UK Maritime Law). Up until sometime in the 1970's the Master had to be a UK national, but this requirement was removed for various reasons, including meeting the requirements of joining the Common Market.

    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. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Full report including live video stream can be viewed here so everyuone can seen local democracy in action https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/07/24/eddie-stobart-wins-planning-approval-for-green-belt-plan/ Our future is in their hands! 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.

    Brilliant images, Mimocuja, and well done in posting them on here. I was thirteen at the time and all the streets in Warrington (and other towns and cities) held street parties for the young and old alike, TV was in it's infancy and not everyone had one so neighbours with sets would invite those without one in to their homes to watch the ceremony, it really was a wonderful atmosphere. Looking forward to seeing your other photos.

    Absolutely wonderful photos Mimocuja as are the ones you have posted on your other topics over the past couple of days. You are so very lucky to have them and thank you so much for sharing them on here for us all to see. I'm loving them and can;t wait to see even more. I'd love to be able to go back in time to those days and experience the excitement of things like the Coronation or even just to see how life was back in the older days on a normal day. Would it worse than today or better I wonder ...I recon both but in different ways

    That's it for tonight folks. Thought you'd like this small collection. Sorry about the quality but as you can see I have photographed a photo. i have over 150 assorted photos of old Warrington from the 1920's to 1960s. I will upload more over the coming days and weeks I hope you enjoy them. mimocuja

    Hi freeborn john, I can only add a couple of old ww2 defence sites that I know of, large concrete pill boxes one at either end of the canter lever high level bridge that spanned the Manchester ship canal, and a searchlight battery and barrage balloon located at radon court Knutsford rd. latchford. Sorry I have no info re down Penketh way. cheers David.A
