Some would suggest this is scaremonering, I'd certainly call it an exaggeration :hmmm:

During the 80's I regularly left from & arrived back in Dover & Felixstowe & remember being stuck in Dover 18 hours but that was due to an inaccurate 'purchase tax' charge. :biker:

Yeah, of course it was an easier passage in the 90's :coffee2:

I wonder if he understands that a number of Muslim woman wear it by choice & others because its possible their husbands/fathers could punish them if they dont?

'We've' allowed Sharia Law to flourish so before their appearance is ridiculed he might consider the consequences for not complying. :hmmm:

Jumping on the bandwagon of being unable to criticise anyone in 'fear' of being labelled racist. :Hi-Guy:

Sterling's performances for England imho have been generally piss poor. I thought the media attention about his gun tattoo OTP, I just put it down to him being a bit of a dick tbh.

They come across as a couple of clowns, certainly not like 2 highly trained operatives from the GRU or maybe that was the intention :dunno:

Some have suggested it not likely that Putin was behind the attack because of the amateurish performance but how did they get the Novichok if the state wasn't involved, so I'd still take a punt on Putin. :biker:

All stacks up for me.

2 blokes visit England for 3 days to visit Salisbury. So they stay in the East end of London.

They make 2 trips to Salisbury staying a total of 5 hours

Even though they are Russian their first day is compromised by slush

The second day they are there for 2 hours

After the disappointment of not getting to stonehenge they immediately fly back to Moscow in a fit of pique.

I'm not asking you but I'll take you if you delay/abandon anymore cuts & start spending more on the likes of the police starting paying them 3%.

Fine,I agree with balancing the books but I'm sick of hearing what wonderful valuable 'job' done by public servants, then take the piss by offering less than inflation. Borrowing has been cut significantly but I suspect much of the cuts have been for political reasons rather than monitory, especially welfare which I dont have a problem with personally.

True, 'we' do have a massive national debt & it cost billions to service that debt but realistically yer not likely to see that drop much this century, if at all :hmmm:

The USA, the power house of the western world, 5 x out population, 10 times our debt, all we hear is well their economy is doing :dunno:

Another prick. :spliff:

I've known from day 1 that Blair was disliked by many on the left, despised by the hard left, for some reason they didn't see him as a real socialist but the evidence proves he certainly was by the amount spending on education, NHS, Welfare etc went sky high.

'They' disliked his friendly manor towards business but it won over the likes of entrepreneurs like Branson & Sugar. The left see business as the enemy, profit being a dirty word, he made Labour electable again.

True, his legacy is the disastrous Iraq war, what he achieved in bringing peace to Ulster forgotten it seems.

Even at times when I suspected he was bull-shitting, I thought yer bloody good at this. :lol:

For the record, I never once voted for him but I certainly dont think he was a bad PM :biker:

An unforgivable act of selfishness imho.

I had a step son who killed himself, married with little boy with another baby on the way, a blessing in disguise that his mum had already passed so she didn't have to go through what the Speeds are going through. No note, nothing resolved at the inquest, I could speculate but I wont. The latter applies to a cousin who killed himself which in some ways was more difficult, mainly cos I was the Executor.

This will do fook all to help compulsive gamblers, as my old granny use to say "you can only help those who want to be helped" & those who do will be the one's who seek help off their own bat.

Back in the 1960's betting shops in the main, had a drab unwelcoming appearance & weren't allowed to encourage people in or to stay if they did come in, certainly no offer of a cup of anything, that was the law at the time. Has it been over liberalised :hmmm: I think it probably has tbh.

Practically all booky adverts close with "When fun stops, STOP". Yeah, of course their being sincere :lol:

When has it ever been fun to back a loser :hmmm: 'They' know its human nature to try & get yer money back which is what a vast majority will do, they dont want you to leave the shop until you've done yer bollox.

Literally every time I walk into the betting shop I get offered a cup of tea or coffee, biscuit, cake, alawys declined, I place the bet & walk out. The only time I've ever stayed in a betting shop all day was when I worked in one & that was long before 2005 when it was liberalised.
