  1. If I’d met and been photographed with one or even two or three attractive women, I’m certain that I’d remember. However, if there had been dozens of them, and/or I’d been off my head on some recreational drug, then maybe I’d not be able to recollect a particular one either. I thought that a couple of things he said were particularly cringeworthy... That what he did was with honourable intent. and With ”the benefit of hindsight”. No. Anyone with half a brain should know it was wrong. Hindsight wasn’t needed
  2. Just to clarify, “constituents” is a much wider group than “the people who voted for her”. For all we know, the majority of people who voted for her may be keen remainers. Regardless of that, her constituents as a whole are pro brexit. But of course we don’t know what version of brexit each voter wanted or expected. Her job is to do the best she can for the country in general and her constituents in particular. If, in her opinion, that is best achieved by remaining in the EU or, if leaving, by having the softest of brexits, then it is her duty to work towards one of these. That she is doing this at the risk of alienating potential voters shows a degree of bravery which should be applauded.
  3. No, but have you tried to look on the manufacturer’s website for a workshop manual / parts list / exploded view or similar?
  4. The term you were looking for is “Reminders”, there to constantly remind the brexiteers of the damage their Brexit vote is doing to the country.
  5. My Sat Nav software specifically warns against adjusting any settings whilst driving. Might be a bit of a problem convincing the police and/or insurance company that you were driving safely if specifically ignoring the instructions
  6. No. My point was that a wild animal has a much more stressful life, regardless of how it dies. Which is better, constant stress and fear, even if ended by a quick and unexpected shot to the head, or a pleasant, stress-free life followed by short term stress near the end? Also, I reckon dispatchers in slaughterhouses will be more consistent and reliable than hunters. Should we get rid of slaughterhouses, and rely on hunters with high powered rifles to pick off cows, one by one, while out of sight?
  7. Once they’ve been dehumanised, it becomes emotionally much easier to deny them human rights
  8. Not referencing any event in particular, but I’m becoming more and more uneasy about how easily we (me included) can refer to certain groups of people, or persons who have committed certain crimes in very dehumanising ways... vermin, animals, rats, etc. Isn’t it time we stopped, and at the same time call out any politician, collumnist, media person etc when they do?
  9. So the rabbit foraging for food has some idyllic existence does it? You seem to ignore that it is constantly in fear for its life, always on the lookout for owls, hawks etc from above, as well as foxes, dogs and people on the ground. It lives its whole life in a state of fear. It’s that fear that helps to keep it alive. Contrast this with farm animals who soon learn to not fear the farmer. They go about their day to day life without the permanent stress suffered by wild animals. Go anywhere near a wild deer, and it will bolt. Do the same to a farmed cow, and the worst it will do is amble away. Or it will come towards you, especially if it thinks it’s going to be fed. Very close to slaughter I’m sure farm animals do become stressed, but only at the very end. Wild animals, on the other hand, are permanently stressed.
  10. Which would be a total irrelevance if the country has already crashed and burned on 31st October. Unfortunately, it could turn out to be too little, too late
  11. In his previous role that was pretty much his job description, on behalf of Sheffield. He did it well. How many others can you name?
  12. I’ve been to plenty and worked in five of them for varying lengths of time. No country is perfect, but I was generally treated with respect. Maybe it was something to do with the way I behaved.
  13. Emigrate, so that in 44 years time I won’t have to listen to all the racist, bigoted Little Englanders who have dragged this country so far downhill in the last 3 years.
  14. Some candidates have a background in local politics. In these cases voters who are interested can research the person they might vote for. But where candidates seem to be parachuted in with no background available, the voters can’t do much more than trust the party to have not picked a bad ‘un. The party has a lot to answer for in this case.
  15. I’ve paid NATIONAL Insurance all my working life, as my part of the deal towards the NATIONAL Health Service. What’s changed?
  16. Self inflicted, but they’re taking the remain voters down with them
  17. No diversion. You have conveniently failed to understand or acknowledge that there are two different issues here. Jared O’Mara appears to have failed miserably as an MP. If Gareth Arnold believes that J O’M is as bad as he claims, then of course he should resign. (Although that begs the question, “why go to work for him in the first place?). The general consensus from things I have read show J O’M in a pretty poor light. I’ve no reason to doubt that, although I don’t know him and have never seen him in action. Similarly, I don’t know Gareth Arnold, but I do have clear evidence of how he has behaved in this case. Instead of just resigning, he has used his position of power to attack and ridicule J O’M. If you don’t think that’s bullying, I’d like to know what you think it is. I think GA’s actions are bad. I’ve not excused J O’M or diverted away from his faults. The point is that J O’M’s failings in no way justify GA’s actions, despite your attempts to excuse him, by banging on about J O’M’s faults.
  18. The method of resignation was nothing to do with Jared O’mara’s failings as an MP, though. It was all about Gareth Arnold’s wish to be top dog, and to act like a nasty bully. The tweets say a lot more about Gareth Arnold than they do about Jared O’Mara. Not a pretty sight
  19. I’ve seen some, but not necessarily all, of the tweets, and not totally sure what the situation is. Assuming the tweeter is who he claims he is, I’m still not sure if this applies to all the staff or just the writer. If it all is like it appears, then I think it is a poor way to act, as it’s more about the writer’s self aggrandisement than about the MP. If you want to resign, then do it directly and professionally. The situation is too important in terms of the MP both as a person and as a representative to do it this way.
  20. After all the damage he has done, I hope the sentence is appropriate
  21. A lot of the benefits of lower CO2 emissions have now gone. My car is a couple of years old and just crept into the £20/year bracket. Later versions of the same car now incur over £100/year VED. I’ve long been in favour of adding all duties to the fuel price. I’d lose out, going forward, but still be OK as I’ve got a car with low fuel consumption. I’d not just limit it to private vehicles. While ever we consider the burning of fossil fuels as being a problem, (both in terms of pollution and global warming), then the simplest and effective way of charging people for using up these fuels is to charge them as they use the resource. Tax/duty is an effective and easily collected method. This should include road vehicles, domestic heating and cooking, shipping and flying.
  22. Of course they are all likely to have Christian values, having been brought up in a predominantly Christian society and with Christianity as the state religion. The same applies to Conservatives, Liberals (and Lib Dems), UKIP, the Brexit Party etc etc. There’s no specific Christian link to Labour
  23. Personally, I’m so excited. I get giddy just thinking about it, but I think a lot of people just don’t realise how much better things will be after 29th August. If the current adverts are to be believed, then after that date there’ll be no more cold calling or adverts about claiming back ppi. What’s not to like?
