  1. As far as older single people rattling round in larger houses, many can't get out of them fast enough, witness the stampede for apartments in 'over 50s' developments like Penketh Court, somebody got their sums right when they spotted that niche in the market.
  2. I notice that it's an extra 10% if you don't pay 'online', presumably to cover the cost of that bored council clerk having to deal with all that expensive talking to the public and stuff. These people really do specialise in peeing up your back and telling you it's raining.
  3. 'Trump won. Now we organise to block him every step of the way.' ran the headline on one newspaper article. In the UK Guardian, that is. I'm sure Trump is trembling at the thought of the latte sippers getting on his case.
  4. Whatever next, the mandate from the voters over ruled by three judges? Naw, that's just too unbelievable.
  5. You could make it £10,000 and somebody in the fast lane of the M62 would still feel obliged to check if anybody has 'liked' that picture of last nights dinner they posted yet.
  6. At the same time, I believe that if the referendum had gone the other way and the majority had voted Remain, those same people would have already had us irrevocably committed to full EU control for the next ten generations, 'It's what the people voted for...'
  7. The political elite seem to have staged a coup in the courts at the prospect of having to remove their snouts from the Eurotrough. It's not over. Well, it might be for some of them, come the next elections.
  8. Just the opposite, she appears to be the same material of which Blair type war criminals are made. A criminal investigation has just been reopened on her by the FBI which seems to centre on her breaching US national security on a grand scale for personal gain, it's possible her presidential bid is on the rocks anyway.
  9. With an eye to a little favourable ink in the press, expect lots of hot air based vowing, pledging, blasting and condemning from the usual suspects with their different coloured rosettes. It will soon blow over once they've had their fun, of course.
  10. There it is, recent generations of motorists have grown up believing that as long as they don't offend in front of a speed camera they can do what the heck they like. Since the police appear to agree with them, what can you say?
  11. The amount of 'block the exit and just sit there staring into space' muppetry which takes place during the towns regular Friday gridlocks, a good police officer with a sharp pencil could probably raise some serious cash and do some good at the same time. Unfortunately, since there's never a copper to be seen amongst even the most monumental, whole town traffic jams, it isn't going to happen.
  12. There was a show on TV where elite survival trained people had to evade capture for a couple of weeks, they were inevitably hunted down. I always thought they should have jumped out of a truck in Dover with just the clothes on their backs. Gone, never to be seen again.
  13. Bowling Green pub, complete with bowling green, at the bottom, that'll be Crossfields theatre, lately a new built supermarket, bottom right.
  14. In a system where large salaries are justified as being necessary to procure the best people, we should therefore see the finest minds, the elite, at the top. Is this the case; I suggest not, in fact I believe that the public sector is little more than sheltered accommodation for some pretty sub prime individuals who wouldn't last five minutes in the real world.
  15. The fact remains that the EU panhandlers need the worlds 5th biggest economy more than the worlds 5th biggest economy needs the EU panhandlers. And when the EU comes apart, as it will shortly, the real pecking order will become apparent, it would pay some of our Eurochums to bear that in mind.
  16. In the same way that Britain has been resigned to putting far more into the EU coffers than ever came back our way, certain of our Euro chums have become used to sucking lots of money out and putting very little in. With the second biggest contributor to the EU grand giveaway heading for the exit, belts may need to be tightened. My heart bleeds.
  17. Sarkosky is giving it the big one in the run up to the forthcoming French presidential elections. Good luck with that, he's so Clintonequely bent he can't lie straight in bed, and the press are on to him, prison awaits...if there's any justice.
  18. Regarding the proposed new traveller site, at £90 pw and with a £150 good behaviour bond I don't see this problem element queuing up to use it when they can crap and run for nothing. Once word gets around I expect that travellers who are happy to pay, keep their noses clean and then go on their way will be drawn to the town to use the site, I further expect that WBC will point this out as a vindication of their £2 million jolly, but the wild bunch will still be running around making a mess.
  19. While England's dismal p While England's dismal performance in Euro 2016 was perhaps an indication of what makeweight money grabbers with no national pride get up to!
  20. And not forgetting the legion of EU gravy suckers who are still embedded in all levels of our government, who are foot dragging at best and actively trying to scupper the economy at worst.
  21. I read recently that a thousand lawyers have launched a campaign to have the referendum result declared non binding, presumably on the grounds that the opinion of one lawyer counts for more that those of 17,000 ordinary people.
  22. Five more feet have turned up, down at the circus, concerns for the welfare of Webby the missing spider boy are growing.
  23. A friend used to work as a school cleaner, and was at first surprised at all the 1p and 2p coins she was picking up. "That's the kids," she was told, "They throw them away."
  24. I was in the Barley Mow pub once, years back, as two barmaids loudly discussed how the place was so haunted that it should be on the telly. When I suggested to them it was probably the ghosts of people who'd died of thirst while the staff served their mates, it didn't go down well.
