  1. Red Flag !

    Apparently the good burghers are concerned about the 10% drop in revenue when the UK leaves the club....we are contributing 10% of the revenue & there are 27 other countries involved.
  2. Confused by the News ?

    Sandwiched between interminable curling & Loose Women, i watched some of Daily Politics & a segment had Vince Cable bemoaning the fact that war veteran & arch Europhile Woy Jenkins would be turning in his grave at Britain wanting to leave the EU. Then we are also shown pictures of the big red Euro bus telling us to abandon Brexit.. It all seems strange to me to want to stay in a deepening political union with countries,some of which were happy for us to save their necks 70 years ago but have since been happy to stab us in the back. The original concept of the Common Market was as far as the UK should have taken its involvement with Europe....a trading partnership ,no more ,no less but with an insisted upon proviso that we could have also traded worldwide.
  3. Red Flag !

    Perhaps the BBC find it difficult to find anything more left wing than themselves so are unable to pass any such accusations.
  4. Confused by the News ?

    I think that was BBC speak to undermine Brexit with sensationalist comment. I expect to see a page 3 added to BBC news to add to the fall into red top customer appeal.
  5. The KFC panic

    DHL seem hell bent on taking over every distribution operation available. A job i was on fell foul of them (B&Q) & the first thing they worked on was cutting wages & had drivers starting all hours of the day & night. It is to be hoped that once Brexit is complete that the UK reverts to the old domestic driver friendly Driver's hours regulations. The current EU regs have actually made it possible for drivers to work longer & more disturbed hours & so ,in my opinion, less safe for all road users.
  6. The Future ?

    As we know different methods of treating cancer & other illnesses are being found every day, but the world couldn't really support such an extra burden so it is more likely that today's lucky beneficiaries of life saving treatment are just guinea pigs to perfect treatment for the wealthy private patients of the future.
  7. New car tax rules ?

    I must confess i had a look on the government website to see what my old banger would set me back next time & i seemed to be going round in circles as it was telling me what tax on new cars would be.
  8. What Happened to - Lap Dancers

    It has been disguised as a clothes recycling bank Milky .
  9. Housing crisis -

    Which means we should see the return of the industry training schemes that disappeared years ago & created a perceived need for migrant labour due to the lack of indigenous industrial skills. I won't hold my breath till that happens though.
  10. Would the genderistas be happier with communal toilets i wonder ? I doubt it very much.
  11. Don't the supermarkets still have clothes recycling containers ?
  12. My favourite beef is the public toilet sign saying that toilets may be cleaned by members of any gender. As if putting a sign up makes it right. Anyway the way everyone is heading towards gender neutral & same sex liasons the earth's population should start to dwindle over the next few thousand years & eventually end the need for further green belt development.
  13. Town centre and its backstreets

    Excellent pics.
  14. Red Flag !

    Perhaps a remote Scottish island will be turned into a re-education centre for UK capitalists.
  15. The first ancient Britons had black skin

    Well Dizzy ,they managed to get Cleopatra looking like Liz Taylor.
  16. Chance for a new Capital ?

    With a multi coloured flag ?
  17. Elected Mayor for Warrington?

    I suppose PR is the ultimate in democracy but it seems to stop any decisions being made & policies being implemented.
  18. Elected Mayor for Warrington?

    And another waste of money ,as you point out Obs, Police Commissioners & their bloated departments.
  19. Elected Mayor for Warrington?

    But ,apart from being an expensively paid extra tier of local government, what can a mayor do that a properly run council could not do? Liverpool & it's city region have acquired 2 mayors & yet are staring down the barrel of massive financial woes.
  20. NHS again -

    Just pointing out that some of the people of working age, presumably like yourself, didn't even have a chance to get old. What does puzzle me in this day & age is that we have serial gripes across society about an ageing population being responsible for all ills known to man but doctors & scientists are working frantically on cures for all types of illness & disease to let people live longer. Is this a genuine desire to prolong life or perhaps a precursor to being able to pay for a longer life if you can afford it ?
  21. NHS again -

    Inside every elderly person there is a much younger person trying to get out, A person who was doing everything that we do now & working to provide the tax & NI to pay for the state dependants of their day, & even laying down their lives so that we could live in a free country. These Jacks & Jills were doing it all when we ,along with our potential siblings, could just as easily have been wiped on the bedroom curtains. I'm sure my daughter would have liked the chance to grow old one day.
  22. Post Box Collections

    I'm sure all post offices have a late afternoon collection.
  23. Post Box Collections

    £ 265. 78p ,if that is the cost of an urgent letter or parcel to London the sender would be cheaper to try jumping on a Virgin train from Bank Quay. There are some cheap prices if you get the right train, or so i have been led to believe.
  24. NHS again -

    My wife was referred to A&E a few years back by her doctor with a hip problem ,poked by numerous doctors, nurses & students ,plied with various drugs & kept in overnight. She saw the doctor in the morning who said he would discharge her "soon" with suitable painkillers . She was finally discharged ,after repeated requests ,at 6 30 pm after threatening to just walk out of the hospital. Another bed tied up & that was about 8 years ago.
  25. T'internet....

    Considering all the news reports we hear of terrorists of all nationalities being radicalised from internet content & sexual perversions of all sorts being available to titillate ,rapists, paedophiles & other sexual predators into putting their vile thoughts into action ,should the internet be better policed to stop such articles & information being available on line. People have even been encouraged to commit suicide on social media site. Is it right that any such criminals should be in the dock alone when their actions may have been encouraged by internet content ? Surely, representatives of, for instance, google, or any social media site that has allowed such content to be openly explored should also be prosecuted.
