Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Of course the sectarian support for Rangers and Celtic is notorious. Yes. Lived in the West of Scotland and lived on Clydeside, so I know the issues that these people have. WHY? It really doesn't matter! Christians are the most persecuted set of people on the planet, be they RC, CofE, Greek Orthodo...

Now Al, remind us precisely what this has to do with the EU?

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Electrical work is not "pariah territory". A couple of years ago I did extensive re-wiring in my own house quite legally. Gas I've no experience with but I'd be hesitant to buy/rent somewhere where the gas installation was a DIY job by somebody who could not afford a professional to make-...

More proposed EU red tape. Perhaps soon we wont be able to repair our own bikes? https://conversation.which.co.uk/technology/right-to-repair-appliance-eu-rules/ I think you have completely mis-understood (or mis-represented) the article/new regs. It is quite reasonable for the manufacturer to only ...

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

When I look around my town - at any time day or night - and I see destitute and homeless folk huddled in corners in the rain - and I meet the folk from the local charity who do all they can to help and provide a hostel - I know of a good place to spend £170M. A lottery win is a lottery win, and goo...

Re: 3 Day Suffolk Tour

I love Walberswick, an artists paradise, so much to paint. Teds shed, the Ferry. The Fish and Chips shed, jetties, rotting rowing boats, piles, mud, reeds, lots of boats, lots of birds. So peaceful, interesting, a lovely random jumble of picturesque vistas.

Re: Extinction Rebellion

We have a Parliament that we elected whats wrong with that? You are better than us at answering that, surely, seeing as Brex*it supporters (which presumably include you) have repeatedly denounced Parliament as "traitors" or what-have-you... But seriously though, I think XR (not "ER&q...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

So, what do XR want? No one knows. Who will make up the 'citizens assembly' nutters, or democratically elected people? We have a Parliament that we elected whats wrong with that? ER would be more effective if they espoused clear objectives, as it is its unclear except that they garner attention thro...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Overhead electric cabling for trains is very expensive and difficult on existing lines too. This has been the stumbling block for the Great Western electrification which is years behind schedule and over budget. It makes no economic sense to electrify small branch lines which is why it doesnt happen...

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

Pay for full time live in carers to assist so that my wife could live comfortably at home. Pay off daughters mortgage. Give all my immediate family enough money to invest and not have to worry about living expenses ever again. Give some gifts to real old friends to make them smile. Done all the trav...

Re: Remainers Angst thread

My 'snide' laugh, as you put it, was in response to a snide laugh from one of your Remainer mates. Personally I am happy to pay a bit more for a chicken, most chickens are raised in inhumane conditions. All this intergenerational rubbish is just.....rubbish. As everyone gets older their views chang...
