Re: The next Labour Leader

Blair was and Boris appears to be in thrall to their advisors. Wilson had some guidance and interation :wink: with Lady Faulkener towards the end of his term. Maggie had Sir Keith Joseph but remained fully in control when she spotted how his monetary policies had totally trashed British Industry, bu...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Been chatting to some of my wifes Nurses and carers about the proposed new immigration rules. Indians, Philipinos, a Spanish male nurse, and several Romanians. All have settled status or are applying for it and all said Britain is a great place to live with a bright future. They all think wages for ...

Re: The next Labour Leader

Weak leaders need spin doctors and 'advisors'. They faff about with policies because they are bereft of conviction and direction. I fear thats what we have right now, a leader dedicated only to retention of power by any means above all else. Al Shock! I had you as a supporter of Johnson yet now you...

Re: The next Labour Leader

Whilst it might be expected that the Labour will want someone with great policies and a sure win at the 2024 GE, what they - and the country - need now is a credible leader of Her Majesty's Opposition. That is, someone who can hold their opposite number properly to account. Well yes, but surely mor...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Sabisky sounds like a johnny foreigner name? I think he should have his (presumably) UK citizenship removed and deported to where johnny foreigners come from :wink: What's in a name? Nothing really, but some folk seem very sensitive about having foreign surnames in this day and age? I cant understa...

Re: Free Upgrade W10 From W7 ?

Just searched the forum because I thought I might have referred to my old PC once before, an Acer Aspire Z5600 touch screen all in one PC... I wanted to run a very complex financial spreadsheet that runs only on PCs and Macs but I usually use an Android tablet, android phone or occasionally my Chrom...

Re: The next Labour Leader

I have watched and listened to the various candidates and not been confident that any of them can lead an effective opposition that could be a credible alternative to the Tories. Its very sad. Unfortunately, under the present system if your vote isnt for Labour or the Tories its largely a wasted vot...

I take the recommended dose of 10 micrograms of Vitamen D with calcium every morning. My wife didnt and ended up with osteoporosis and three fractured vertebrae resulting in massive pain and loss of mobility. Its particularly vital for women to get sufficient vitamen D. I only take it in autumn and ...

Re: New supermarket without cycle parking

Pete, are you a Coop member? I am, I got a 40 quid divi last xmas. You can put yourself forward for a position on the board and become the scourge insisting on decent cycle parking everywhere. Otherwise shop at Sainsburys :D
