Re: Enforced break (no pun intended).

Thanks for the good wishes. I cannot access PC right now so use this tablet. No weak bones, Dujon, just a poor choice of sitting swiftly on an ankle that had shot under my rear. The pain is bearable so far (after all I'm a BWFC fan and have practice) but I'm getting worried about boredom setting in....

Enforced break (no pun intended).

Last Tuesday was a bad day. Walking for my early bus to teach at MCLL, I slipped on the ice damaging my right leg and ankle. I knew it was bad but a neighbour passing by took me home to my garage. With some difficulty Susan got me to the new Royal Vic picking up my daughter en route. They triaged an...

Re: European Second Referendum

MPs have voted in favour of the Cooper-Letwin bill, which requires the prime minister to seek an extension to article 50, thus staving off the prospect of the UK crashing out of the EU with no deal by accident. They voted to accept the final Lords amendment by 390 votes to 81 – a majority of 309. L...

Re: Answer Me!

I'm not sure if I'm the one who failed to answer - probably at one time or another. It seems to me there is little point in "discussing" something if there is no possibility of agreement and compromise, but even so hearing other points of view can be interesting for a while if it stops short of flog...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

You are wrong there. There is an entire chapter on dress. On what is halal and what is haram. It states for example that men should not have trousers that cover their ankles - please note photos of Islamic fighters with ridiculously high cuffs on their western style keks showing off their nikes.

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

I'm still never sure why "interpretations" of the Quran (Koran) are constantly used to justify acts that are decidedly against its basics. This, in proportion rarely happens with the Bible. An old and well worn chestnut granted, but it's so convenient to quote scripture and wrangle it around to jus...

Re: Today I'm happy about......

I have been in Portugal since Sunday with work. I finally had a wonderful fish meal that I expected for this great country. It was a sea bream in Tavira, which is a lovely town 20 minutes from Faro. Ooooh, Malc. If you're still out there and you get a chance I implore you to try black scabbardfish....

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

No Catholic has ever threatened me with death for not being a Catholic. An accident of birth. More like an evolution of civilisation. I have no doubt that many people who were Catholic in say 1620 threatened non-Catholics with death for being non-Catholic in that year. I would have been as ferventl...

Re: European Second Referendum

Actually this is what we did in Canada nearly 40 years ago. Nafta and other trade deals signaled the death of the clothing (rag trade) and furniture making industries in Quebec. We put our R&D into hi-tech where we could compete. We are a world centre for aeronautical engineering and computer gamin...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

Prejudice against people purely because of their origin, nationality, ethnicity, religion etc is wrong however you try and cut it. Rather than for example saying ‘all Catholic men should be arrested in case they are paedos’, which is simply wrong. You choose an example which in itself borders on pr...

Re: European Second Referendum

The reality is that Minford isn't saying much different to all the others - he's just presenting a political case for why we should just feck off farming, and manufacturing in this country and let those industries rot. Actually this is what we did in Canada nearly 40 years ago. Nafta and other trad...

Re: General Chit Chat

"More than 100 people attended an open meeting on Thursday in Birmingham's gay village". Is that just across the road from the white supremacist quarter? I have a genuine question: I'f it's okay to be gay, is it also okay not to be? Homophobe! Give into it pal. A tango dancer must have a little erm...
