  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. He doesn't want you to agree, he wants you t

  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?

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....⚰️

Obs, get off the 'politicians want to open the economy for political reasons' crap.

'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.

Wonder how she manages at the dentist? Last time i saw a doctor he was surprised I was a patient of his. He had to send somebody down to the basement to find my notes.

  36. Sorry folks, United had just lost to Arsenal and my mind was in a tortured state! I was trying to compare the non-stressed life of the 50''s, 60's and 70's (at least for me) to today's daily turmoil and asking for opinions. Apparently, I made the mistake of starting with a very cute line about us all being so old, that we must be funeral planning ! It must have been so cute that it overshadowed my original intention and made a life of it's own. Damn, this is not getting much better. Still, on that subject, my wife signed me up for cremation policy, it was listed at the funeral

  37. Your right Latch, but our hand wringing liberal politicians are already squirming with excuses for these nutters. The same people who demand votes for sixteen year olds, now saying she was groomed at a vunerable age. So even if they imprison these fanatics, they just turn prison into a university for their doctrine and infect others. Seems the best solution would be to hand them over to the Yanks, who can lock them up in Guantanamo and throw away the key - sorted.

  38. i think that the punishment of six months is about the right sentence. Six months in a cage outside gatwick with a sign detailing their crimes and a barrow load of rotten fruit and veg supplied daily for airport users to throw. (got to feed them something for six months) Hosed down twice a week to keep the smell down and provide fresh drinking water. Cruel and unusual punishment, well yes but it is only for six months and it will save the cost of a prison guard, electricity for lighting heating and also provide some much needed entertainment for delayed passengers. Be more of a draw

  39. I did not criticize the House PJ, I cast an aspersion on Congress. Plus Trump did not 'lose' the House, it went to the Democrats as it usually does in mid-term elections. In Presedential elections, the imbalance created by huge, highly populated cities and States like California and New York, which are predominantly Democrat havens and the less populated States like Montana and Wyoming etc, which are predominantly Republican, is corrected by the Electoral College, so that every State's viewpoint is represented. The fact that California may send a hundred Representatives to congress

  45. Rod. You're being disingenuous because I've read the reports including the conclusions from the council that the benefits you seem so certain of are in fact far from certain. The pilots did not reduce casualties. They did reduce speeds but they were beginning to go back up. They did divert large numbers of vehicles onto other roads. The police did express concerns about enforcement and drivers acting aggressively when faced with what they considered inappropriate speeds. I also know that the DFT believes that reducing speeds will increase pollution and that the 20mph limit does not reduc
