  1. Just saw a couple of elderly gentleman walking towards boots and laces

    With a Brown Out banner, maybe late 60’s, 70’s one very tall.
  2. Venus Williams

    Involved in a car crash where she ran a red light that ended up in the death of an elderly woman. I think that's the end of her glittering career, and possibly a spell inside waiting for her?
  3. Fireworks.....ban them !

    Recent news stories show thugs aiming these mini bombs at police and children,in fact anyone . Must be time to ban the public from buying the bloody things...keep them for professional shows. How many people are injured every year,far too many,the noise at any time of day scares animals and...
  4. RHB

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...
  5. Left wing right wing

    Not talking about Myles Weston here. I consider myself to be Left wing regarding Politics, workers rights , taxing the rich, getting rid of the Royal Family, reform the house of Lords etc. I think the UK should not take any more refugees and should kick out / stop illegal asylum seekers . I...

    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/aug/01/conservative-voters-ukip-coalition-poll A new poll suggestst that 30% of Tory voters would like to go into coalition with UKIP after the next election. No suprises there then.It won't happen though. With only one or two MP's, (and hopefully...

  9. Tangled up in Blue

    "April is the cruellest month"

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21991953 The coalition government's cuts programme kicks in today, appropriately enough on April Fools Day but it's no joke for Britain poor,the elderly and families on benefits in general (many of whom are actually in work). Even Frank Field described the bedroom...

    Elderly couple murdered by toothpaste

  12. Tangled up in Blue

    Does GB take care of its elderly properly?

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1357399/NHS-evict I would say (in the light of my experience and knowledge about Spain and France we don't). Any comments?
  13. 50p for the meter.

  14. Mad Cyril

    Conservative Child benefit to be scrapped for higher taxpayers.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-11464300 This would make more sense to me if those whose earnings fall below the higher rate threshold received more child benefit which I assume they won't. I would also like to see some sort of means testing on benefits for the elderly - they don't all...
  15. Yorkshire Blue


    It's been drawn to my attention that the elderly are struggling to spot hyperlinks. Would it be possible to change the way hyperlinks are displayed eg underline them, make them a more distinct shade of colour, have flashing lights etc? They've been through a lot (the Boer War, the Crimean War...

    Greek Tragedy For King Otto

    South Korea 2-0 Greece EURO 2004 SEEMS AN AWFULLY LONG TIME AGO It’s hard to believe that Greece ever caused the European superpowers such headaches. Granted, they were never blessed with a generation of superstars, but they always had their composure, their organisation and their ability to...
  17. Proud Parent

    There I was last night, getting, like everyone else, very frustrated that our dominance during the second half was not reaping the reward it deserved. As the 2nd half went on, from behind me in the South Upper, came the same voice shouting out the F word and calling the ref a w**ker (which he...
  18. Bexley Blue

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...
