    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.

    OK PJ so are you saying that every time ANY of us post a topic or make any comment we ALL have to substantiate our words with source links to validate what we are saying? I've posted many 1000's of topics and comments over the years as have you and others and yes sometimes we have all posted links but mostly we haven't. I suppose we could though if we could be bothered but then what would it achieve other than giving other websites an extra 'google' type tick in the box for the posted back links? We all interpret what is reported in national and local news differently sometimes that's because of the way things are reported though as some are intentionally worded to cause unrest and debate and we all have our own views too. Just because you think you are right about something or I think I'm right about something..or any other person thinks they are right about somethings...DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE ALL RIGHT...OR INDEED ALL WRONG. But what matters is that things SHOULD be able to be discussed/debated in a grown up way. Twice now you have also mentioned 'better run forums' too...well if you don't like this one and think it's so badly run WHY DO YOU KEEP COMING ON IT and not stick to the 'better run ones?' Obviously I'm not trying to get rid of you but if you hate it so much why stick around and call it all the time? I feel very sorry for Gary who, as we all know, pays to keep this forum running with money from his own pocket every month just so us 'long timers' can all whinge on it. Maybe you will get your way one day and he will close it down...... As for you wanting me to retract the claim that you accused me of racism......non retractable I'm afraid as I explained myself more than once about how I felt....I agree that you didn't actually say directly that I was being racist but your comments and you way you kept on and on made it seem like AND MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS being racist...when I wasn't. I swore blind I wasn't going to reply on here again.....damn...OVER AND OUT !!

    FOR GOODNESS SAKE....... HOW ABOUT YOU BOTH AGREE TO IGNORE EACH OTHER AND STOP WINDING EACH OTHER UP! IT'S SO BLOODY BORING FOR THE REST OF US TO HAVE TO READ IT ALL AND THE CONSTANT BICKERING...SAYING THAT IF OTHERS ARE GETTING AS PEE'D OFF WITH IT AS I AM THEY HAVE PROBABLY STOPPED READING ANYWAY. SO MANY DECENT TOPICS STARTED (MOSTLY BY YOU OBS) THAT THE REST OF US HAVE ALSO TRIED TO COMMENT ON BUT THEY THEN FALL INTO A BATTLE OF WORDS AND NONSENSE BETWEEN JUST YOU TWO (PJ & OBS) HERE'S A PLAN...PJ HOW ABOUT YOU STOP STALKING OBS' EVERY WORD AND POST ...AND OBS HOW ABOUT YOU JUST DON'T RETALIATE? YES AIR YOUR OWN VIEWS AND DISCUSS LIKE GROWN UPS BUT PLEASE DON'T TURN EVERY TOPIC INTO WHAT ONLY CAN BE DESCRIBED AS A BLOODY PRE-SCHOOL TEMPER TANTRUM PLAYGROUND BATTLE.

    deja-vu alert folks if you have got this far in your reading you will have that feeling "i have read this before." yes you have in any topic that these two post in. so chaps? (can't be too careful with the PC police watching in) Can you at least invest in a thesaurus and try and make your ping pong posts a bit more erudite. One of these days i may spend a hour or so going through the posts and creating a cut and paste post of all these repetitions. Might even offer a prize if anybody can correctly identify the original topics they were cut and pasted from.

    Of course you did. Your post was in direct response to mine. And as for your comment "not everything centres around you cherub", that's a bit rich coming from someone who believes he's never wrong about anything and doesn't care who knows it!

    Wearing a hoodie or any other form of head covering that obsures the face creates an uneasy feeling for the vast majority of people and that's a fact so knowing this, these people are choosing to going against the views of society. Everyone likes to be a bit different than the next but If there was something in my life that caused others to be concerned about, I simply wouldent do it. Fitting in with society is in my opinion, something that a lot of Asian peole don't do very well and face covering and the wearing of traditional robes as the daily norm dosn't help in this process.

    seems to be the problem with tomkins this season, either he plays a blinder or spits the dummy out if decisions go against his team. Thought the new signing made a good showing, not afraid to get stuck into the bigger players and seemed to be no respecter of reputation. The game did lack a certain winning attitude from both teams and plays seemed to be rather predictable up to the final ten minutes at least. Man of the match for me Robert Hicks. No messing no mithering I am in charge end of story go away.

    Here we go again with the public good private bad nonsense. The timetabling shambles was caused by the public Network Rail who did not have sufficient capacity to deal with the magnitude of amendments in the timescales mandated for small changes each year. Andrew Haines their chairman said that this week to a select committee. The congestion in Manchester is caused by long distance trains being sent from Victoria to Piccadilly so that services from everywhere can get to Manchester Airport to meet the financial plans and green veneer of the local authorities in Greater Manchester. There is insufficient capacity to let the trains stop at Piccadilly on the two platforms available and delays just build up. Cause politicians from Manchester driving Transport for the North, led by the idiot Andy Burnham. The same idiot also supports the RMT who are striking to save the guards on Northern trains that the company says aren't going to be removed anyway. The franchise legally requires most of them to be kept! The problem is that there is not requirement in the franchise to cancel the train if there is no guard available. So the RMT are actually striking to preserve industrial power to cause chaos to passengers!!! … the idiots in the North West support them... Turkeys --- Christmas! All this private rail chaos stuff is just left wing propaganda, railwaymen are relatively better paid in the private system it carries more passengers and is cleaner and safer. Where public ownership and control intervene it falls to pieces. The lefty position is not in touch with reality and is mostly propaganda.

    And perhaps if all governments had kept their noses out of private businesses, took less money out of private enterprises in taxes to spend on their own, uneconomic, pet projects we would have an adequate transport infrastructure. And an education system that taught people how to spell "fourth".

    Think the darwin awards have been cancelled this year due to there being too many contenders. There are any number around where i live be it the people who cross the road at it widest part despite being ten feet from a pelican crossing to the ninja cyclists that ride the area at night wearing all black and with no lights. add to that the smartphone zombies and you would be spoilt for choice.

    The Wire ran out easy winners at 80-10 having led by 34 points to 6 at half time. Warrington controlled the first half easily, but started making silly mistakes and giving away soft penalties in the second half. However Hull only managed one try in the second half and by the end Wire were running amok against a clearly tired and demoralised side. A much improved performance to the one at Wembley.

    That's the end of that for this year. Catalan gave fair warning in the way they destroyed St Helens in the semi final, and they followed that up yesterday with a win in the final. The Wire seemed below par yesterday, making quite a few unnecessary errors that helped the Dragons to victory. On the day the better side won.

    I thought Hicks was ok, I wouldn't have a referee's job these days for the Town Clock ! Under intense pressure from the word go,so much going on ,new rule interpretations,players trying to milk free kicks,keeping track of tackle counts,keeping pace with super fit sportmen, etc etc plus some sky presenters pulling the game apart with replay after replay after blooming replay. I must say well done to our merry whistle blowers they get a lot of stick,but there wouldn't be a game if the crowd applauded every decision they make.

    There really is no need for these terrorists to wear masks , we see the pin up jihadi boys swathed in scarves posing menacingly before they behead some unfortunate helpless victim who can offer no resistance &, as with the cowardly bomber ,their goal is to meet Allah & cavort with umpteen virgins in heaven. So if their ideal is to die in the service of Allah ,they have nothing to fear from having the bottle not to wear a mask.

    Who are these imaginary "people on here" who are "terrified" of these women? Dizzy has admitted to being a "bit freaked out" and "uneasy" but I can't recall anybody saying they're "terrified". As for myself I'm no more terrified by them than I am by any female, whatever they're wearing . I get the impression that anything you disagree with is "far right propaganda" by the way.

    Good point Obs. I must admit I've never taken much notice of her or her parents...not intentionally but they never get to be in/on the news much so I forget they exist. A lot of normal brides and groom pay towards their own weddings these days with a little help from parents too so what does Euginie and her soon to be hubby do for a living? Can't see they will be hard up so maybe they could both contribute too especially as she's the one you say wants a 'show off' wedding. Maybe long term their wedding and vows would mean more to them if they'd had to work hard to save up and pay towards it all too.......
