  1. So sorry to hear this sad news. RIP Mort. Must have been a terrible shock Medusa. Sincere condolences.
  2. I will agree that Trump shares some similar characteristics to Hitler. He certainly thrived on the adulation of the crowds he addressed and loved the attention he received that had the result of making him feel more powerful and delusional. So there was a potential for abuse of power and in view of recent events we can see what that led to. But I can't imagine anything as bad as the situation in Fascist Germany ever happening in America. And yet, i could hardly believe what I was seeing when I watched the storming of the Capital, what a shock that was! I rest my case.
  3. I'm no fan of Trump and have previously posted how shocked I was when someone so unsuitable was elected as President, but to imply there are similarities with him and two mass murderers responsible for the most appalling crimes in history is ridiculous.
  4. Relaxing piano music Ludovico Einaudi - Nuvole Bianche
  5. Quite a nice song, not heard it before. Happy New Year.
  6. Thanks for that nice Christmas message Pete, and the same to you. Fairytale of New York is one of my favourite Christmas songs. I once started a thread about it a few years ago. It's one of those songs that makes me feel happy which I'm sure it's meant to do, and yet, I acknowledge there's a sadness about it too. So carry on singing it from the top of your lungs, because it's Christmas and that's what I'm going to do.
  7. Boris doesn't really know what he wants He's an opportunist full of contradictions In the past he would say anything without conviction if it furthered his career, and I don't expect he's changed. See the contradictions. https://www.channel4.com/news/factcheck/how-boris-johnson-has-changed-his-views-on-europe
  8. . The expression "coloured people" is still very offensive to many. Not just because of the history of Slavery but as a reminder of the terrible recent history of segregation only a few decades ago, especially in some of the Southern States of the USA, where it was considered quite acceptable to put up signs displaying expressions such as "Whites only" or "No Coloreds allowed".
  9. Yes I was impressed with the speech too. Here in full for anyone interested who missed it. He appears to be a decent man with high principles, but whether he will be a good President will also depend on how he manages to deal with unexpected events, such as a very serious world crisis for instance. Being an American President is an enormous responsibility.
  10. Beverly is the character she plays in Abigail’s Party. If you decide to watch it it was on BBC 4 Play for Today and is still on Iplayer.
  11. I missed "The Singing Dectective" heard it was popular though. Must look out for it, they are showing a lot of repeats lately.
  12. I also watched Life and apart from the unnecessary frequent use of the f-word, I quite enjoyed it. I particularly liked the Alison Steadman storyline, as she is one of my favourite actors. If you've seen the 1970s great play Abigail’s Party which I watched on BBC Iplayer the other day you will be aware of how versatile an actress she is by seeing her play that dreadful but sad character Beverly. She was brilliant in that. I read somewhere that in an interview she gave she said that " There's a bit of Beverly in all of us". I dare not admit which bit of Beverly I may possess 😀
  13. Yes it was a good interview, and I agree with you Patricia that Cliff came across well. Apart from liking an occasional song, I was never much of a fan of his music either but I liked him, even though I thought he was a bit of an enigma.
