Re: Officially inflation is under 2% but...

I remember when it was 3d. Old pence, that is. And I even remember an art lesson at school, when we were set the task of designing a stamp to commemorate the Olympics (In Rome, I think they were that year). The Art master said, the prevailing colour had to be purple, because that was the colour of t...

Re: I dont want a Big Mac

It just occured to me the big one in the picture that 661-pete detests, if you put a skewer through it and eat it as a concertina, that would work? 8) I wouldn't know, I've never eaten a concertina, nor an accordion. I may have, in a fit of pique, entertained thoughts of eating my piano. More diges...

I hope we're still allowed to say how incredibly stupid we think Drumpf and his cronies are.

Re: I dont want a Big Mac

To me, warm lettuce has got to be one of the most unappetising ‘conventional’ foods ever. If it's only the warm lettuce that bothers you... :roll: Every one of those piccies in the link (yes I did click it :oops: ) is frankly nauseating. Especially the last one (above). From the blurb: The bread is...

More Trump idiocy

I'm talking about his derision of the latest Oscar-winning movie , Parasite from South Korea. Of course, it's quite understandable, seeing as he can't speak a word of Korean ( sort of Chinese, ain't it? ) - and with his reading age of about seven or eight, the subtitles are flashing past far too qui...

Re: Government targeting wood and coal burning.

I've been told that in some countries (Germany?) you have to let your cut firewood season for two years before you can legally burn it. Certainly in France, we let our wood (all of it cut from our own garden) dry out for many months before it goes in the fireplace. Not necessarily for two years thou...

The best way to deal with them is shoot a bullet down the telephone line: https://i.imgur.com/IKYa3br.gif Hmmm.... bit extreme, maybe?

Re: Amazon

I can't understand why Amazon is so popular. I can! Often enough Amazon is the only online source for a particular item. Unless, of course, Google (which is not owned by A.) is in some sort of stitch-up with them... Their jobs are so unappealing that they have to advertise on TV to get applicants. ...

We're in the grip of neoliberalist capitalism what can we expect? I wish I knew what the words "neoliberal" and "neoliberalist" mean! Perhaps someone will explain them to me? Then I could use the words in my crossword puzzles.... I have a kindle, for my sins. I find it very usef...

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

If these immigration rules had been in force when Priti Patel's parent came to thr UK from Pakistan we might now be spared our current Home Secretary. Stereotyping is misleading you, I'm afraid. Ms Patel's parents immigrated to the UK from Uganda (before the Idi Amin regime, btw), and before that h...

Incidentally, I don't need any lessons on what is anti-semitism, please - not from anyone on this forum!
