  1. Cutbacks are necessary for one reason only, the Labour party spent all our money. The Tories are slowly getting it back, too slow for me to be honest but progress is progress.
  2. I was there about 1961 but for only a year. I remember Arnold, Rankin and Sutherland and a few others that were mentioned. In my class was Richard Swinscoe, John Hudson, Lorna Brader, that really all I remember. My Father got a job in the far east and we all trooped off over there.
  3. Surely padis and philos means lover of the Irish.
  4. VIPs are being "treated like everyone else". Several are locked up for long sentences. Your problem seems to be that you ignore the basic principle of English law in that in order to convict you have to have proof. No doubt some will get away with it, an equal number may well be accused unfairly, implementation of the law is not easy, nor should it be.
  5. Im afraid that on this forum if Cameron was proved to be Christ returned and granted everyone eternal life and a daily free cake, they would not be satisfied. He is a pragmatic and effective PM, not the best, certainly not the worst and is a safe pair of hands in difficult times.
  6. Mick Lee, he had the Greengate at High Green, then he went to a nightlclub in Derbyshire (Fiveways?) he then went to open Mulberry in 1976. Good landlord, like a lot of others at the time victim of lousy brewery management. Looked a lot like Terry, a younger version.
  7. Agreed, I would also argue that the dictators were weakened by the downfall of Saddam and as a result the Arab spring took place. Frankly we could argue were this started till the cows com home and probably end up during the fall of Jerusalem to the Muslims in the 7th century! The fact is we are were we are, and if western politicians continue to pussy foot around hoping that Daesh will go away we will all suffer for it. ---------- Post added 28-01-2016 at 13:01 ---------- You write as if Corbyn was the lost voice in the wilderness. Labour ministers resigned over Blair and Browns criminal act. France and a number of other allies would have nothing to do with the invasion of a sovereign country. Corbyn was then what he is now, a non entity. A political agitator, never a politician. When you compare him to those ministers such as Robyn Cooke it shows how weak and ineffectual he was then. In view of the fact he is now leader of that once great party it shows how badly Labour has declined.
  8. You are absolutely right in asserting that this situation is of our making. Had we stuck to eliminating Bin Ladens group in Afghanistan and had left Sadaam and the other north African dictators in power the world would be at peace. But we didnt, Bush and Blair lied and took us to war. We now have an enemy that does not fear death indeed welcomes it. We created the situation, but do we merely lay back and wait for them to kill us? Corbyn is a fool if he thinks he can reason with them. Its a fight to the death and we must kill them before they kill us. ---------- Post added 26-01-2016 at 15:34 ---------- Not in the form it was in the Roman Empire which is the context of my comment.
  9. Yes, Paganism was wiped out in ancient times. Zoroastrianism was virtually extinguished. The Cathars are another example. There are others.
  10. There is only one thing you need to know about Deash or ISIS or whatever they are called and that is how to kill them. Bomb them back into the stone age, then kill their goat.
  11. What a strange post. Why do I need to give myself credibility? Why do you feel I need to prove anything to you? Americans have always gone there you incipient moron, have you never heard of Ernest Hemingway? Do you not read? The media has been telling you for months that restrictions on travel from the US are to be lifted, clearing the way for many more to visit than ALREADY DO.(they get in via Canada). Is this a difficult concept for you? Snaily Boy come out from under your shell.
  12. A few questions to answer, I went there because I was told that as the US travel restrictions were to be relaxed the place would soon be invaded by marauding yanks and this would be the last time opportunity in its present pure socialist state. If that is true I now feel that the sooner the yanks get there the better, although anyone who flies over Florida to get there must be mad. If you like bathtub booze carcinogenic cigars, and truly lousy food, then go. Regarding Skegness, the place has gone up in my estimation no end as a result of my visit to the socialist paradise.
  13. You could provide evidence of your NI payments.
  14. I did my best. ---------- Post added 25-01-2016 at 17:51 ---------- It always was, thats why Chou en Lai and Mao had Swiss bank accounts. It is however a communist state, no free elections nothing resembling a free press.
