    Bloody Sunday -

    I suppose the peace keeping conditions would have understandably made the soldiers very jumpy ,not knowing if there was a sniper behind every window or a bomb under every car. Perhaps UN troops with blue helmets would have been more acceptable to all factions as peace keepers.

    Bloody Sunday -

    Most of the time the armed forces in NI were very reserved in their response to terrorist action. I remember a very apt Giles cartoon from the time where a squaddie says " If another one of them bricks bounces of my head i'm going to ask my sergeant to ask the captain to write to my MP to see if i can fire a rubber bullet back ".

    jeanious ? !

    Perhaps said jeans could be marketed as a life saving tool complete with flashing light ,tube for topping up the air & whistle to attract the rescuers who are searching for you. No need for life jackets somewhere under aircraft seats then.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I must apologise ,it seems i have been looking at some bum information . I have since read some other articles that remove any future problems with the treaty that have not already taken place.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I believe the stranglehold of the Lisbon Treaty will not be fully felt until 2021 when every country that signed up is sucked into its grip.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I think a second referendum would have so many alternatives that it would probably not give a clear mandate for any way forward.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    What happens if said extended delay clashes with the Lisbon Treaty being fully implemented ? Are we then trapped for good ?

    Deal or No Deal ?

    Won't mainland Britain be able to source its Irish tariff free meat & produce via NI ?

    Deal or No Deal ?

    Yes, tariff free south to north ,tariff to pay north to south.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    What still puzzles me is that the EU has insisted on borders with non-EU client countries which the UK would be after Brexit, but they are lambasting us in the event of need of a hard border in Ireland.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    Apparently, the EU has no limit on referendum re-runs as long as the "right" conclusion is attained.

    The thin end of the wedge

    Of course the internet will be state controlled in quite a few countries.

    Perhaps it is just an advertising stunt Obs. You would need plenty of wind to inflate them & keep them inflated. Maybe extra sprouts should be compulsory for all sailors.

    I certainly won't be commenting further in case i get labelled as wanting to ban free speech.

    The thin end of the wedge

    One of the problems with social media is that any comments could prejudice court cases & could even result in criminals walking away.

    The thin end of the wedge

    We should probably agree to disagree.

    The thin end of the wedge

    What we have is a difference of opinion.

    The thin end of the wedge

    Of course bad stuff happened before the internet but if bad stuff is coming from the internet surely it better to control it electronically. This is just my opinion & for someone who is a champion of free speech you don't seem very tolerant of views different to your own.

    The thin end of the wedge

    I suppose you could suggest that anyone who is happy for on line grooming ,exploitation,& bullying to take place must be tolerant to such happenings. It's all very touting free speech & the like until any of the above come knocking on your door.

    The thin end of the wedge

    All i can say is that there is a lot of nasty & dangerous stuff out there that in my opinion should not be seen. How it is censored is up to the purveyors of the internet who ultimately decide what content is freely available to all.

    Should she be "rescued"

    And so they should Obs . They were supposedly interviewing her father who lives in Pakistan ,let her go there. Strange though because they interviewed a bloke in London a couple of weeks ago who was supposed to be her father & looked nothing like this other bloke.

    Should she be "rescued"

    No doubt the Labour hierarchy have sniffed some political mileage in bringing this girl home & put Bride of Corbyn up as the mouthpiece. There should be quite a few votes among certain parts of the electorate up for grabs .

    The thin end of the wedge

    These instances have been on the news more than once ,we hear of terrorists being lured over to the dark side on facebook & young girls being tempted on facebook to become terrorist wives ,who want to come home after 3 years & pretend it never happened.

    Draft Local Plan

    My ex wife moved into a block of flats about 6 years ago , it was supposed to be for younger working people who were wanting to buy & just a few older residents. She had to move out this year because with her health issues it was no longer suitable for her....the lift was always breaking down & she can't climb stairs. Oh,& the previous upwardly mobile tenants had long gone leaving the place mostly populated by idiots & drug addicts.
