  3. I have a signed van dyke painting at home. I tell you Dick van Dyke is a better actor than painter.🀭 Art is what you make of it. Three black dots arranged in a triangle on a white background and labelled as a polar bear in snow. If done by me would be laughed at by everyone..if it was done by say Picasso or one of the other well known painters, it would be lauded as a masterpiece and fought over by people who have more money than several banks could count. I once heard a very humorous description of the difference between art and lewd paintings. if it has urns it is art, if it has ch

  5. TD... maybe there is proof, maybe there is hearsay.... there may well be no doubt that the likes of Saville are guilty of some abuse; however you have to balance what is fact over what is just people coming forward to give a made up account of something that never happened. Remember 9/11? Remember Tania Head? she was the woman who claimed to be a survivor of the Twin Towers collapse and then became the "leader" of the survivors group? She got there because people did not question enough before accepting what she was saying was fact.. There are people out there like the 9/11 woman, who

  7. You really have got to love these burghers of Europe. With every day that goes by, my gratitude at leaving the EU is reinforced. I have never witnessed such petty & spiteful people as those who are entrusted with running the EU. Unelected Bureaucrats elevated to positions of power are not a good idea.

  10. - everywhere; but not a drop to spare ! Seems were destined to run out of water over the next 25 years according to the EA, if you've just received your water rates, you may be excused some anger. The UK is noted for being rained on, and although a drier climate is predicted, it would seem the starting point for the EA would be to increase our collection and save capabilty IE: increase the number of reservoirs; combine this with hydro-electric schemes to produce green energy (two birds with one stone); establish a national network for water transfer throughout the UK.

  12. Following on from the private prosecution brought against our esteemed Mr Johnson , will it also mean than any politician can be held accountable for any statement made which is not carried out to the letter ? A PM or even a political party could even be held accountable for failing to carry out it's manifesto to the letter. What come across to me is nothing more than mud slinging against a prospective PM from an agent of the Remain side which was no less guilty of romantic fiction during the referendum campaign.

  13. I find your attempts at censorship rather confirms Observer's disquiet at the extension of PC philosophy which this ban, which has yet to affect any ad at all, represents. It is a clear and distressing reduction in our liberties in an area which is beyond what I believe should be the remit of the ASA, namely social engineering. Free speech is being eroded by policies such as this as well as commenters who divert any expression of an opinion by constructing personal attacks on those who express them; in Obs' case usually hoping to start a discussion.

  15. Naah PJ I'm not offended by the ruling at all....... I find it all rather laughable to be honest that we live in such a bonkers society these days that people feel the 'need' to look at something as daft as some tv adverts and say 'hey this needs to be stopped as it might hurt some little gentle wallflowers feelings'. Most people probably never even gave it a second though until someone with nothing better to do made a big deal of it. Bit like the 1000's of numpties who have been complaining to OFCOM this week about not liking something on Love Island. Durh...well stop blummin' watchin

  18. So more scare tactics to put fear and mass panic into peoples minds and yes a ploy to either make us (the UK people) think 'Shite maybe we'd best not leave after all then'. Probably a ploy to put fear into all other countries who may be quietly thinking that they may leave too. Such a large proportion of people here and around the world are diabetic and NEED insulin so no wonder they are trying this tactic to keep us all REMAIN. The more scare stories I see the more determined I am that we should LEAVE and put 2 fingers up to the lot of them. YES WE WILL ALL BE OK...IF WE CAN SURVIVE

  19. it does make you wonder then how much worse off the EU will be without the UK given the speed of which this bit of legal hocus pocus was put in place. I suppose there will me a more vigorous campaign from both sides now to support/denounce it. Saw a bit on the news yesterday when they were interviewing people in runcorn. First one they interviewed came out with the statement that they were worried and then admitted that they had not voted in the referendum. That being the case they have no say in the matter. Their excuse was that they were not sure about the issues. second

  20. Well you might then explain why enforcing the requirement to park in the bay only is in the public interest in an almost empty, and by the sound of it about to close car park. They already had the parking fee so the penalty ticket is only needed to discourage behaviour that might stop others from parking but that was evidently not the case. There is a requirement on councils to not treat parking fines as a source of revenue but this case suggests that might well be what was happening here. The rules are there for a reason but when the reason ceases to be applicable why not cease to enforce it.

I'll report back sometime within the next 24 hours to say if/when my quota resets itself. That doesn't really explain yours though Wolfie but I'll see what I can find out although probably best that you can't give any anyway eh?

  26. Have had several this week alone, i always ask first how Dave is as i have not heard from him for a long time and if he still works there. That and ask them repeatedly to supply the error codes so that i can check them out. Finally if they have not hung up i ask them if my macintosh computer would show the same errors as a windows one. If that does not work then i start to engage in a lengthy description about whatever is aching at the time. So far i have managed to keep one occupied for seven and a half minutes almost a personal best.

I once worked out that over my lifetime,so far, i have climbed the equivalent of one and a half Everests. Somebody bought me one of those fitbit watches to monitor my exercise. i was so inactive it made a call to the undertakers....⚰️

They both claim that they have been unable to collect my Direct Debit payment and that I have to follow the link and set up a new DD. Stay wary folks and keep your banking details safe!!

  30. BLM is a product of the age we live in. They are a bogus organization born simply out of the fact that, in these times, the crazier your proclamations the more you get on tv. They have no interest at all in any dialogue, or in thhe preservation of lives of any kind, they just want to March and chant " Kill the police, kill the police" and maybe loot a little on the side. They exist simply because they can, they are merely anarchists using skin color to avoid being run out of town on a rail. There were around fifty blacks killed by blacks in Chicago this weekend over a 48 hour period,

  31. Not the only ones: Piers (the mouth) Morgan and opposition politicians are after his scalp (but he's bald !); so much for constructive opposition. If Cummings has committed an offence he should be fined like anyone else, but no, they are after undermining the Gov at a time when we need some political cohesion. 😷😷

  34. Seems the UK currently have better "worker's rights" than the EU, and thus not dependent on membership of the EU. So a red herring hatched by Labour as a Remoaner excuse for opposition to Brexit. If employment standards and environmental standards become matters for our domestic Parliament in any case, this issue will be governed by domestic election results.

'Hurtful gender stereotyping' my a*se. People who dream these new rulings up or are easily offended need to get a grip on life and stop being so blummin pathetic.

What the hell are you talking about PJ, there was no racism mentioned or even intended in my comment, are you so bigoted that you can't see genuine humour when it stares you in the face, Confused 52 is correct I was merely having a light hearted dig at Sid regarding his comment, I am the last person that would infer that any area of this country was populated by any race by their colour, for goodness sake lighten up and take your head from up your backside and see what the real world is like man.

A rabbit walks into a pub and says to the barman: β€˜Can I have a pint of beer, and a Ham and Cheese Toastie?’ The barman is amazed, but gives the rabbit a pint of beer and a ham and cheese toastie. The rabbit drinks the beer, eats the toastie and leaves. The following night the rabbit returns and again asks for a pint of beer, and a Ham and Cheese Toastie. The barman, now intrigued by the rabbit and the extra drinkers in the pub, (because word gets round), gives the rabbit the pint and the toastie. The rabbit consumes them and leaves. The next night, the pub is packed. In walks the

Its called progress obs. as a kid growing up in the sixties I have walked to school in snow that came up to my knees in places, true my knees were closer to the ground then, but we still went to school, Steam trains ran albeit slightly slower as they had to melt the snow from the track, the bus struggled through somehow, people got to work. They set out earlier so as not to be late, but then most people worked within walking distance of home. Health and safety have a lot to do with our current predicament, add to that the fear of being sued because little chardonay has slipped on ic
