    Peoples vote ?

    Love her or hate her, the withdrawal negotiations would have been right up Thatcher's street. She would have had Barnier & his cronies crying in their continental breakfasts.

    Peoples vote ?

    I remember reading many years ago about the route that was being constructed to connect Dublin , as the capital of new member Ireland ,with Brussels. Apparently,loads of Euro dosh was spent on upgrading road & sea communications via Hull & Holyhead. As a result improvements were made to the M62/M6/M56/A55/A5 route to connect Hull & Holyhead & Dublin to The European capital & Europort. I wonder if that route will still be relevant after we exit the EU & will Britain become a giant toll bridge ?

    I think if we do eventually leave that ferries will soon be sailing between Eire & France ,even northern Spain. France won't think twice about moving their undesirables onto the next country in the chain ,Ireland.

    What we have to be careful of is that a lack of some kind of control between northern & southern Ireland could be an easy way into the UK for illegal immigrants.

    "hate crime" ?

    In the purist sense of burning an effigy on bonfire night , is it any more offensive than the worldwide celebration at Easter of nailing a man to a cross ?

    Despite Brexit

    Good old BBC ,now it's the video game industry that is concerned about Brexit.

    Choudry -

    The Chinese are reported to be re-educating their muslims ,perhaps we should also have similar ideas for our own non compliant followers of Islam.

    Despite Brexit

    And now the National Audit Office is throwing its three pen'worth in over the borders & the BBC are loving bringing the matter to the attention of its viewers.

    Beaumont school

    I went there from about 1957 to 67 ,through last year of infants,juniors & boys senior school. Looking at the photograph, the buildings on the right starting at the bottom were infant mixed. From what i can remember ,the next block housed the mixed juniors downstairs & senior boys upstairs. The buildings in the top right hand corner housed the caretaker & a woodwork classroom. The brick buildings in the middle of the yard were outside toilets split between boys & girls juniors & senior school. At the time i was there there were 3 or 4 prefab buildings on the left hand boundary wall (Wilkinson St) which housed extra classrooms for the senior school including a metal workshop. I left Beamont as it was after Easter or Whit(?) 1967 & moved to the new school at Long Lane for 1 term after it merged with Oakwood girls to form the new school.

    Twitterarchy -

    There was a particularly vitriolic article emerged yesterday about the person who racially abused another person on a Ryanair flight. (Please note the gender neutral). The comments for & against all parties on "social media",as it is now grandly termed, would surely prejudice any future court case . Social media really is no more than a gossip column to air your views recklessly at arms length & a medium in which to air your dirty washing in public.

    Excellent suggestion.

    If people are security risks to the UK they should forfeit indefinitely their right to freedom . There should be no place in British society for this terrorist.

    A line in the sand...

    We are hearing the killers in Turkey of Mr Kashoggi at the Saudi embassy were obviously state sponsored murderers. Britain & the US are wringing their hands with outrage at this event but can either country afford to derail the mutual trade deals that exist between Arabia & the west ?

    The frightening thought is that some of these will have designs on future positions of power once their university days are over.

    Brexit again -

    Maybe the prices in Dublin will stop illegals entering the city.

    Time for regular re-tests ?

    The sight of 70 pluses taking to the road in lycra because they had no other form of transport could be too much for the feint hearted. How about hover boards for de motorised pensioners ?

    Brexit again -

    How true .I wonder how many sneak in through Eire as it is ?

    Brexit again -

    The border will need to be robust between Northern & Southern Ireland to deter illegal immigrants from sneaking in through Eire as well as France.

    Taxpayer milked again -

    Just read an article regarding the wedding & surprised how many Hollywood hangers on there were ,no doubt helping to fleece the taxpayer. I think the cost of these ceremonies would be better received if a healthy percentage of "the man & woman in the street" were invited instead of these thespians.

    Space reserved ?

    Living in Newton, i have tried the 22 into town for the match but because the service changes after 8pm (?) to continue on to Wigan the times of leaving Warrington have been changed to half past the hour. Couple that with 7 45 kick off & it means either leaving the game early or hanging about till 10 30.

    Brexit again -

    There was the famous case of the travel sick cattle being checked through border checkpoints & then returning to their point of origin across the border on open roads to defraud the CAP grant system. After their transit seals had been changed off they went again.

    Taxpayer milked again -

    I read a news article a couple of weeks ago where a happy couple had set their hearts on a particular wedding then set up a crowd funding page to cover the cost. This wedding paid for by the taxpayer is very similar to crowd funding apart from the fact Joe Public doesn't have a choice.

    'Arrods....

    Seems like the police are clamping down hard on foreign nationals with discrepancies in their means of income . The wife of a rogue foreign "banker" who ran off with the petty cash has managed to spend £16 million in Harrods ,buy a !£10 million golf course & carry out various other large purchases. Could be a good source of income for the government if the police are encouraged to dig deeper into the affairs of our visitors from afar if their incomes can be shown to be proceeds of crime.

    Climate Change ?

    In the 21st century there shouldn't be any obstacles to the world's nations coming together to turn these parched countries into the breadbaskets of the world so they can at least be self supporting & food wise self sufficient. Hang on though, if we did that these nations would no longer be beholden to "the west ".
