The most succinct comment on the results. I simultaneously despise and pity those who have chosen to live under the Boris Boot.

Re: Waste Disposal (Bath)

It was the literally crumbling walls and failed lighting that led to the task, I was entirely indifferent to style or colour, although an odd bath would have looked a bit naff and impossible to find one to match rest (some retro colours can be had at a price, but not mine). A case of no longer func...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

We need competent and able government not strong government though the latter is what those of an authoritarian bent prefer. I think the danger of "authoritarian" government is suppressed .......... I think the plan is very clear to deal with this: Voter suppression will be achieved throu...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Turnout. In the least statistically valid prediction of the day so far (but there will be contenders!), I foresee a high turnout. My Polling Station (small catchment area) staff said been "very busy" in first 4 hours.

Re: Waste Disposal (Bath)

All too much hard work for me! I sourced cheap stuff in as near like-for-like as still available and simply paid 2 people to rip out, skim, re-tile part and fit new suite! I no longer have the strength to do such work and the dust would shorten my life by at least a year. I shall probably do the pap...

"When I told her that I wouldn't be voting for Labour because I just can't vote for a party led by Corbyn ..." Telling how many have voted Labour to salve their social conscience in the trust that won't actually be a Socialist government, which is of course what Labour is meant to be. At l...
