Re: Black Lives Matter

Can anyone explain to me why its taken the murder of a black man 3,000 miles away for the English to start protesting about racism? Dalian Atkinson was murdered by two white police officers, I don't recall anyone kneeling for him

Re: The Politics of Coronavirus

You don’t get the hang of it do you, if you are PM, you go to the country and ask people to vote for you. If you win you get to run the country, if you lose, generally speaking your party kicks you out and some poor schmut gets to be in opposition. It doesn’t matter how many knots you tie the man i...

No, I'm saying we shouldn't be surprised when a politician tells lies. Its what they do. Getting upset about it will never change that fact.

All politicians tell lies. Always have.

Re: Katie Hopkins

do you support such lies incompetence, stupidity, lack of scrutiny , attack on democracy? if you do then in my view you are not demonstrating common sense or decency. Perhaps you think you are demonstrating common sense or decency when you tell us that maybe Wilberforce was wrong. However if you ar...

Re: Brexit strikes

So, I've received an email from an agent I'm dealing with about house buying in France. It has been announced that after 31st December, to be able to move to France, you will need to speak French to A2 level, earn a minimum of 1500 euros a month & take out private health care. Before 31st December ...

Re: Black Lives Matter

Just my personal thoughts and I have no doubt someone will accuse me of being institutionally racist. I'd like to know what all these protest marches are really for. I know it is to focus the attention on the injustices faced by BAME people. Yet, if that be the case then their needs to be a march e...

Re: The Politics of Coronavirus

just remind us what were the bad bits under labour and I wonder if you are alert enough to understand that the world financial crisis was no more to do with labour policy than the current virus problem was caused by the tories and what were the good bits? perhaps you will grant that there are some ...

Re: The Politics of Coronavirus

Serious question, why are people so accepting in the UK of such a disastrous government? We have a unique mentality where we'll make up an excuse for things, or somehow claim it could be worse. Is it unique to Britain as we accept being controlled by the upper classes? Or maybe it's a wider issue??...

I prefer the acoustic version on the beatles Love album

I very fine song played simply

And just beatles on the recording I believe
Agree with that.

For the same reason, I prefer the version of Something from the Anthology series, just George on vocals and guitar

Re: The Politics of Coronavirus

A study by Cog - UK shows the biggest single cause of the outbreaks spread was not due to a patient zero, but the 1,300 people who have come into the country with the virus since the New Year. Interestingly, less than one per cent of these was Chinese. No doubt this is exclusively the fault of the C...

Re: Black Lives Matter

Maybe we should. We should not be celebrating anyone involved in slavery. By allowing tributes to those in the slave trade, we are accepting that it was ok. Why shouldn't we pull down Nelson's Column? It would be a strong, clear message that the government & society are ashamed of slavery and are s...
