  1. What time is it ?

    I'm the same Sid, and again most of them were bought by Mrs A, although the radio controlled one was a "gift" from, probably, Readers Digest to my mother who gave it to me. Unfortunately it shows German time being radio controlled - every time I set it right, the next update puts it forward an hour so I live with that. I always have to be early for appointments too, but an hour is a bit ott!
  2. Doctor's orders

    My doctor said to me, “Don’t eat anything fatty.” I said, “What, like bacon and burgers?.” He said, “No fatty, don’t eat anything.”
  3. What time is it ?

    Well exactly Obs, so it's a case of the mother passing on her lack of common sense to her offspring. A long slow steady spiral of decline, thus ends civilisation as we know it. Sad.
  4. What time is it ?

    If young Mum's young son can't understand something then surely that is when young Mum should explain it to him? If that is parents' attitude to their offspring these days it's no wonder we are getting a generation with no common sense.
  5. Windrush -

    No Fugs, just bored with your attempts at one-upmanship.

    Members 69 1,826 posts LocationWarrington Report post Posted yesterday at 10:56 AM "It appears that, not only in this country, ... voter fraud is endemic" That's a lie for which you have no evidence whatsoever. So yes you did, in effect, call me a liar. Getting bored with your insults now.
  7. Windrush -

    You have shown me to be wrong to your own satisfaction but not to mine, and even if I were to be wrong (which I don't believe I am) that's no cause to call me a liar or even wilfully ignorant. In fact name calling isn't a substitute for producing a convincing argument, which linking to a load of articles which may or may not be correct doesn't convince me one iota. Would you call me a liar if I asserted that the world is flat (which loads of people do) or just mistaken? And of course you can form your own opinions, don't let me stop you.
  8. Windrush -

    I don't push any agenda, am not a member of any political party or grouping. I don't have to explain myself to you or to anybody else, but if you don't like what I have to say on here I suggest you do the sensible thing and simply ignore me and carry on believing everything the government and the media tells you.
  9. Windrush -

    Fugs, I don't have any "aims" to achieve. You have no compunction about calling people who you don't agree with "liars" however.
  10. Windrush -

    That's a statement for which you have no evidence whatsoever. I don't know why you have a problem facing reality Fugs.
  11. Towns MPs, what do they do?

    A friend of mine wrote to Mr Faisal Rashid several times last year and is still waiting for even an acknowledgement. I have written in the past to both Helen Southworth and David Mowat when they were the MP and always got a prompt reply. I don't know what our latest MP's problem is.
  12. Windrush -

    It appears that, not only in this country, but in the USA voter fraud is endemic and for some obscure reason the left of centre parties are against any form of voter ID being put in place. I wonder why. (When I say left of center parties I include the Tories and the Republican party, otherwise known as RINO).
  13. Windrush -

    But you can't vote if you're not on the voting register, and I presume you can't register to vote if you're in the country illegally. Or am I presuming some sort of competence on behalf of government?
  14. Playing with fire ?

    Most people only know what is supposedly happening under the Trump administration through the mainstream media which has been virulently anti-Trump since he started campaigning for the election. It's interesting to hear the views of someone "on the ground" so to speak without the media bias.
  15. The House of geriatrics -

    I wouldn't say it was a challenge to the government but rather a cry to the world outside that they be noticed and treated as somehow relevant. Most commentators agree that it's a mere flea-bite on the government's thick skin.
  16. Town Hall flag

    I noticed today that the flag flying over the Town Hall wasn't the usual Union Flag, but instead it was a blue flag with a circular yellow motif (no it wasn't the EU flag). Does anyone know what it was?
  17. Town Hall flag

    That's a possibility Dizzy, and would make sense.
  18. Town Hall flag

    I thought that at first glance Obs, but it wasn't.
  19. Give Warrington town centre a chance!

    The town isn't really welcoming to visitors, particularly the bus station. It's become very drab and run-down looking. Quite often the sliding glass doors malfunction (either not opening, or opening and closing continuously), some of the bus information screens at the stands show the wrong time (and therefore the wrong bus times). The whole place needs a good clean, and when it rains it resembles a wholesale bucket warehouse. The scene that greets you when you come out of both stations is less than welcoming. And the amount of litter covering most of the town's streets is nothing short of disgraceful.
  20. Playing with fire ?

    Obama funded them. The Russians have a gas pipeline they want to route through Syria.
  21. Playing with fire ?

    So the USA forced Saddam to invade Kuwait so that they could eventually depose him? That's an interesting take on reality you have there Obs.
  22. Playing with fire ?

    So if Saddam hadn't invaded Kuwait everything in the ME would be rosy Obs? I somehow doubt it, the region is too volatile. Obviously the interference of the western alliance has done nothing but harm.
  23. Salford away

    Yes, yesterday's game against HKR was a strange one, racing ahead to a 20-2 lead at half time only to practically throw it away in the first 10 minutes of the second half. But then racing away again in the second half to win easily in the end. Ratchford well deserved MoM again.
  24. Salford away

    Another win for Warrington, against Salford today. Strange game, the Wire going into an early lead in the first 20 minutes 14-0, before Salford pulled a try back. HT 14-6 to Warrington. The second half was scoreless until 8 minutes from time when the Wire scored another try and then scored from a penalty. Final score 22-6 to the Wire. HKR next at home.
