  3. 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 ch

  6. - 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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 t

  11. 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' watchin

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. Well you might then explain why enforcing the requirement to park in the bay only is in the public interest in an almost empty, and by the sound of it about to close car park. They already had the parking fee so the penalty ticket is only needed to discourage behaviour that might stop others from parking but that was evidently not the case. There is a requirement on councils to not treat parking fines as a source of revenue but this case suggests that might well be what was happening here. The rules are there for a reason but when the reason ceases to be applicable why not cease to enforce it.

  18. Y'all need to understand, Trump is on a par with all the great industrialists and business greats of the past, like Vanderbilt, Carnegie and such. All of them had various peccadillos, but they all got the job done. Y'all should finally realize that politicians cannot run countries, a guy who was a dentist last week, or has slept his way through fifty years in Congress, like Biden, ain't going to hack it in economics or foreign policy today. Trump is running America like a successful business and it shows, he's a 'doer' not a wilting piece of crap like Obama. Take my word for it, Trump

They both claim that they have been unable to collect my Direct Debit payment and that I have to follow the link and set up a new DD. Stay wary folks and keep your banking details safe!!

  21. BLM is a product of the age we live in. They are a bogus organization born simply out of the fact that, in these times, the crazier your proclamations the more you get on tv. They have no interest at all in any dialogue, or in thhe preservation of lives of any kind, they just want to March and chant " Kill the police, kill the police" and maybe loot a little on the side. They exist simply because they can, they are merely anarchists using skin color to avoid being run out of town on a rail. There were around fifty blacks killed by blacks in Chicago this weekend over a 48 hour period,

  22. Not the only ones: Piers (the mouth) Morgan and opposition politicians are after his scalp (but he's bald !); so much for constructive opposition. If Cummings has committed an offence he should be fined like anyone else, but no, they are after undermining the Gov at a time when we need some political cohesion. 😷😷

  25. The alliance of anti-brexiteers said they had united on a plan to stop Boris. Boris responded by taking away the parliamentary time they needed for their plot. To be clear, the Government has a right to govern whilst the bunch who are promoting sedition do not have a right to do that. That those who are guilty of fomenting sedition have the audacity to call the lawful actions of the state a coup says everything about their concept of truth or lack of it.

  28. 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

Why is this when NASA came produce a picture from 34 million miles away that lets you count the grains of dust on Mars. Even mobile phones seem to have better resolution than the standard cctv camera. surely they can be made so that at least the person looks human.

  33. 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.

  37. It's now the EU who can give us what we voted for, by refusing an extension (as there is nothing new to offer them); any vote by Parliament against "no deal" will be none binding and without an extension to article 50, the clock runs out on 29th march - then we're OUT (NO DEAL) - which is what we voted for.

  39. 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.

She has stuck to that job, unlike some of her ministers who jump ship at the first sign of things not being to their liking and despite being sniped at form all sides. Politicians do not kick up a fuss when they are elected to represent us in parliament so why do they kick up a fuss when asked to represent us on such a issue as our leaving the EU. Before anybody says because it was all based on lies and misinformation let me remind you we are talking ab

A rabbit walks into a pub and says to the barman: ‘Can I have a pint of beer, and a Ham and Cheese Toastie?’ The barman is amazed, but gives the rabbit a pint of beer and a ham and cheese toastie. The rabbit drinks the beer, eats the toastie and leaves. The following night the rabbit returns and again asks for a pint of beer, and a Ham and Cheese Toastie. The barman, now intrigued by the rabbit and the extra drinkers in the pub, (because word gets round), gives the rabbit the pint and the toastie. The rabbit consumes them and leaves. The next night, the pub is packed. In walks the

Therefore, every day I walk around town and tell passers by what I've eaten, how I'm feeling, what I did last night and what I'm doing later and with whom. I give them pictures of my family and friends, of my dog and cat, of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, standing in front of landmarks, having meals out and doing things everybody does every day. I also listen to their conversations and give them the "thumbs up", while I tell them that I like them. And it works just like Face

Its called progress obs. as a kid growing up in the sixties I have walked to school in snow that came up to my knees in places, true my knees were closer to the ground then, but we still went to school, Steam trains ran albeit slightly slower as they had to melt the snow from the track, the bus struggled through somehow, people got to work. They set out earlier so as not to be late, but then most people worked within walking distance of home.

  46. So the EU are demanding we pay them billions to get out. They are demanding that all agreements are done BEFORE we start trade talks too and also want the rights of EU citizens living here to be all agreed and rubber stamped ..... and yet when we throw an ace into the ring, namely the fact that the EU rely very heavily on our security services and expertise, they cry in unison that that shouldn't be allowed??? Of course it should. Our security services are paid for by OUR taxes and is bugger all to do with the EU. If they want our info to keep them safe then they should bloody well
