Horace's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. Contrary to the repeated claims that it is the most important vote for a generation, I think the outcome is irrelevant. You will have a bigger influence on your own life if you vote in your local parish council election.
  2. I have been much amused at the way this debate has wandered to and from the initial topic. I have looked for the "official" definition of the word "culture" and found a great many. I think the one that appeals to me most is "The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively" That being so, it is probably true that Warrington does languish somewhere near the bottom of the pile. Equal last with a great many others, however.:

    Really, should we be laughing at someone who has never heard of the Trammps? Sounds to me as if someone has had a misspent youth!
  4. Warrington's response to the WW1 commemorations has been very poor, from what I have seen, compared to Frodsham - which is a much, much smaller place.
  5. Actually, if you look up the word "posh" you'll find that to call someone posh is actually paying them something of a compliment. And from what I hear, Alderley Edge has more or less been taken over by footballers who, while they might have money, certainly are not posh!
  6. I never cease to be amazed at the ability of certain members of this forum to transform any serious subject into trivia.
  7. Ye Gods! Do we have to have stupid comments about former councillors etc brought into a serious topic? That sort of mentality is almost as bad as the idiots who committed such mindless acts of vandalism!
  8. I say keep it - Facebook has too many idiots on it. I know there are a few here too - but at least they are local idiots!
  9. Just been watching some young girls ambling their way to school, their eyes glued to their mobiles. Thumbs working feverishly sending text messages to friends. This seems to be their main occupation these days - and it means they are living in some sort of digital world and not even noticing what is going on around them. Is this the future? Or will these youngsters eventually get fed up of texting as they grow older.?
  10. Some time ago, my granddaughter fell victim to a scam website, cleverly named after a reputable one. As a result, she parted with £100 for a product which never arrived. I took the matter up with Trading Standards in Warrington - and they didn't want to know!
  11. I suppose it gives a great opportunity for the nobodies to have a laugh at the expense of the somebodies!
  12. The number of people that go through the turnstiles - idiots though they may be.
  13. The fact that something is difficult to enforce is not a reason for not doing it. Murder is against the law but nobody suggests that it be made legal simply because it has proved difficult to stop people doing it!
  14. Because I didn't know who he was! And still don't. Threads should be constructed in such a way as to avoid unanswered questions.
  15. Who is Chris Smailing? I am not sure who is the biggest prat - Mr Smailing or the people who assume everyone knows who he is!
