  1. Aborigines may point out she is part of the immigration into their country.
  2. During the height of the IRA's activities would Obs have been demanding that all Roman Catholics should be forced to take an oath, along with anyone with an Irish accent or name?
  3. My apologies - I meant to say " that Windsor woman and her successors" ( I didn't mean to give her position legitimacy by using the word "queen")
  4. The report I saw just said one of them was of Nigerian descent - we're all of African descent if you go back far enough.
  5. As I said - not just religious but also what I see as a secular morality.
  6. Allegiance to what - not the bloody queen, I wouldn't do it - why should they?
  7. I had the misfortune to see the crime scene photographs, babies impaled on railings - truly horrifying. Even after thirty years the image is burnt into my memory. However I still do not believe that the state has the right to kill criminals. I find the notion of capital punishment morally offensive. I find it offensive both on a secular level and also against my personal religious beliefs that see human life as sacred. The deliberate killing of one human being by the state is not justified by that person's taking of life. Society should be better than its worst members - not sink to their level. On seeing those awful photographs one of the things that struck me was that surely whoever carried out those acts could not possibly be sane. I accept that there is little point in engaging with you any further in a discussion on this Baz, so I shall try and resist the urge to make any further comments on this thread. - Obs - I know that as far as you are concerned everything is the fault of immigrants and Europe - this case predates the ECHR .
  8. Like a snake oil salesman working a gullible crowd, just don't go thinking he believes in what he is saying. As for smoking - some of us plebs realise it aint good for us, don't be so patronising as to think we can't make up our own minds.
  9. Too Easy ! Sorry, couldn.t resist.
  10. To be fair he doesn't totally rely on such surveys. There is also his extensive collection of Jennings novels You know the ones; Jennings Goes to School Jennings Follows A Clue Jennings Finds Matron Jennings and the Burning Sensation Jennings Goes To The Clinic
  11. asperity you have caused a problem for Obs - he doesn't know if any retrospective legislation could be blamed , by Nigel Fartrage, on Europe for annoying his friends in industry.
  12. Saying what ever he thinks people want to hear - how like any other career politician. Nice to see that smoking and drinking are how you judge people Obs - nothing shallow about you It appears that some of Fartrage's crew find the whole policy thing a they get in e.g. their leader in Suffolk "it was difficult to come up with coherent county-wide policies. He said: “We’re still working on that. I don’t know if we’ll have them in place by next week.........” Suppose they could just ask the local village idiot what he thinks.... (as long as he isn't a bit swarthy or with his civil partner)
  13. Der der der dum der der der der http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22554314
  14. As an aside , this may be of interest http://festival.britarch.ac.uk/
  15. From the Beeb "BP wants Prime Minister David Cameron to intervene over the escalating cost of compensating US companies for the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster in 2010. BBC business editor Robert Peston has learned that BP feels its financial recovery is in jeopardy because the compensation system is being abused. The financial burden of paying fictitious and inflated claims may even make BP a takeover target........ ........BP gives many examples of businesses which have received huge compensation payments when they have suffered no harm from the oil spill”
  16. Let's just say we're unlikely to be picking out curtains together
  17. Can't get more London-centric than Nigel Fartrage , professional politician and a career in the financial markets.
  18. It does seem to be unjust to prosecute someone for acting in a way that was lawful at the time of their actions.
  19. Can we expect to see WBC's own herd of goats trimming grassy areas throughout the borough?
  20. They, apparently, have funds to spend on PR friendly activities * and councillors' vanity projects but not to mend potholes. I know some weary willy will be looking to explain the difference between revenue and capital budgets or whatever - but then the divvies at the Town Hall need to set those budgets better. * or what they perceive as PR friendly - I'm not alleging hey are competent at doing so.
  21. I'm always a bit sceptical when it comes to freebies and who is behind such offers. As it appears to be from the USA (last bastion of creationism) I just hope they don't have a module on how archaeology shows the earth is only a few thousand years old and man co-existed with dinosaurs.
  22. The problem is they don't just want that - they have other policies and tendencies which means people should be wary of.
