  1. Politician: - They type of person who can stab you in the back whilst looking you in the face.🕵️‍♀️
  2. Careful dizz about loosing your marbles, they tend to roll everywhere and you end up losing them.🤔
  3. So if there is a no confidence win then the current government will have to be dissolved or a general election be called. similarly a vote of confidence in the next mob must be passed within 14 days or else there must be a general election. If the no confidence vote is defeated then another opposition member can again call for a vote of no confidence ad nauseum or until they run out of opposition members willing to risk a win. Even if there is a vote of no confidence then there is a precedence to call into question the validity of that vote on the grounds of misleading information supplied to the voters. (as claimed by brexiteers and remoaners) Seems our Mr Corbyn just wants to able to say he has been the prime minister and is prepared to use any tactics to achieve that aim

    no matter how big a shed you have there is never enough room for all the odd and ends that you keep justy in case in fifty years time you have a use for it. when we cleared dads shed i lost count of the number of half gallon paint tins with about half an inch of paint in, each one had to be opened and checked to see what was in it, just in case you found something useful, like you do.
  5. OOHHH she nearly got away with that one. 🤣 Happy birthday and may fortune smile on you and your family, unlike me who it just glanced at and laughed for about twenty minutes.

    My dad was a great hoarder, however he had a big shed to put stuff in. We always used to say if you wanted anything no matter how obscure or unusual my dad would have it somewhere. Between the kitchen wall and next doors fence was a space about width of a standard gate. he roofed it over and fitted a door to it to store wood, all sorts of wood, from six foot lengths of 3 x 6 oak to six inch offcuts of quarter beading. if there was a tool that had been invented chances are he had it or could make one just as good. When we finally had to empty everything we found tins and jars full of rusting bolts and nuts with all the old threads like Whitworth and BSW.
  7. More like the old time western gunslinger, always somebody who will come along and be quicker on the draw. When computing was in it's infancy it was more like "i wonder what happens if i do this" sort of endeavour. More curiosity rather than malice. Hacking these days is just electronic blackmail. Today it is a lucrative business and i do sometimes wonder if the ex poachers are not quite so EX as they are made out to be.
  8. Don wernham took over the chippie in grafton street. When he passed away his nieces took it on and its now called uncle dons chippie. Don't think so bill although you may find the odd sausage in it.🤔🤨🤭
  9. A lot really depends on what is defined as poverty these days and who does the defining of course. Also where will come into it. What is the definition of poverty level in say the UAE as opposed to Ethiopia?
  10. Soylent Green anybody? 🤫
  11. Loosing what? and can you get arrested for it?
  12. Global warming/climate change is due to (insert some plausible reason here). It can be proved by (grab a few facts from google that support plausible reason). it can be countered by ( some idea i have come up with that sounds reasonable and will make me money in the long run). And there you have it your very own climate change/global warming bandwagon kit.🤭 By the way has anybody checked to see if the sun has got any warmer, just a thought like.🤔
  13. Think the ref was bit under the weather, he only went to the video ref once instead of every try like he usually does.🤣
  14. politicians breaking promises. who'd have thought it. as they say "you can always tell when a politician is lying, their lips move"🕵️‍♀️
  15. Might look this one up to see if there is an electronic version of the book anywhere. Sort of thing i employ with spam emails. Any that purport to have money going spare because of a dead husband/relative usually get a reply from me offering condolences. One of my better ones was the "i have a case full of money in storage" e,ail that i replied to advising that it was destined for some Columbian drug cartel and infected with a deadly virus and was not to be opened under any circumstances, followed by a detailed plan for safe disposal of the crate and it's contents. another was one that wanted me to spend the money to carry on her late husbands Christian deeds. my reply was that as a practising Satanist it would not really be appropriate. but she had my condolences on her loss.
  16. odd thing is that specsavers are the only ones who do the flexible frames. There are the online places that do them but specsaver offer them at a price of £99.00 two for one. (ultra flex frames) I would post a link but might fall foul of the forums advertising policy. A look for flexible glasses frames on the old goggle search engine will help.
  17. Yes, but built to some other firms requirements. think along the lines of redecorating a house you have just bought. It may be perfectly well decorated but not your tastes so you redecorate. Or you could liken it to having a shiny new council offices when there are plenty of perfectly adequate office spaces available that only need a minimum fettling up.
  18. it is owned by stena bulk and northern marine management a Swedish company but sails under a british flag.(probably to avoid higher taxes and pay rates or other finacial benefits that Britain allows and Sweden does not) The crew consists of Indian, Latvian Russian and Filipino members, although information on how many of each comprise the 23 man crew is not mentioned. As for the captains nationality then as only those 4 nationalities are mentioned as crew then i can only assume, rightly or wrongly, that it is one of those.
  19. That's right blame it on the Romans, "What av they ever done for us eh"?🤭
  20. I have a pair of reading glasses bought years ago that have a flexible frame. you can tie it in a knot almost without damaging them.(can get lenses replaced in them but the opticians i got them from no longer do that sort of frame) Worth having a google to see if you can still get that type of frame. Might save you from having to get a repair done in future,(will survive being sat on without any sign of distortion afterwards a si found out one afternoon.)
  21. Makes you wonder why hadrian had that wall built at times.🤔🤣
  22. Was thinking along the lines of plumbing lighting and other electrical supplies to various areas. Modifications to buildings to accommodate required access for staff and vehicles plus parking for same. Use by another company of a building would entail at least some of these even if it was just a huge empty roofed over space. A lot of the time it is simple with minimum adjustments having to be made. Think of it like trying to fit a double bed in a room that has previously housed a single bed. the floor space may be adequate but what needs to be removed to allow the transition etc.
  23. Depends on what the repair required is. If it is just missing screws you can get a repair kit with screws and tools and do it yourself. if the frames are broken then the chances are that you will end up having to buy new frames. I would try the opticians where you got them first though they may do a free of charge repair.
  24. I use the on-line prescription service for me and mrs sid. login using my details and my medicines come up on screen. tick the boxes for those that i need. press order prescription and confirm. This then is signed electronically by the doctors and sent to whatever chemist i have chosen. after that i can arrange with the chemists to have them delivered to my door or pick them up myself whichever. Basically it is like handing in the repeat prescription form to the doctors but without having to leave the house and saves on paper. The only time i have to see the doctor or practice nurse is for an annual health check up or a flu jab. or the odd occasion when i am actually "ill" or have a concern over an unexpected pain such as a groin strain or similar.

    I have a pair of boots that are over 40 years old and still as serviceable today as the day i got them. Mind you i have only worn them a few times the first time was when i went down the mines.
