I haven't seen that campaign, (do the middletons count as royalty?), but what I have seen is the younger royals doing less and less and being completely upstaged by the older ones.

I don't have a lot of time for any of them, there is literally no skill, or any achievement in being a royal. but I'm not really anti royal either.

New age royals paying their own way?

I'd like to hear more about that...

Well first up it's the daily mail so take it with a line of salt

Secondly I it is just as destructive as alcohol, and gives a similar heightened feeling of confidence and agitation

and thirdly it destroys communities where it is farmed and processed so it should not be shrugged off.

Read that on BBC site couple of weeks ago? And if I remember on the independent? VIZ! Is that still going? How's Billy the fish?


Again, we can all say we've read something - it doesn't count though without some back up!

And Billy is still in goal, although he was manager for a bit when the other one retired!

It's cited in various newsfeeds boy. If your too lazy or stupid to do research then that's not our problem. And Via is about your level for political commentary.

If it's in various newsfeeds then just supply a link! I did my research, and it isn't in loads of news feeds because this issue keeps changing and everyone keeps blaming everyone else.

You just keep bleating your opinons out and citing them as fact. That is both lazy and stupid.

You prick.

Why because you said it is? You cite your opinion as fact an awful lot on here.

If you google it the only place other than you that says it is the sun. If that's considered a reliable source of information then I'm gonna start quoting Viz.

I don't see how what you are saying relates?

The OP implies that all the signs and warning weren't seen. That isn't the case.

https://www.newburytoday.co.uk/news/news/24...r-bollards.html

Maybe read the story and get the facts first!

It says that the bollards have not been working properly and in some instances have been operated manually. On one occasion they had been returned to their up position, manually, whilst a vehicle was going through.

"LABOUR'S Emily Thornberry faced embarrassment today as she was forced to admit that it was HER party who first said they would create a "hostile environment" for illegal immigrants.

The Shadow Foreign Secretary said she knew that former Home Secretary Alan Johnson first used the phrase in a speech."


Another unsubstantiated quote from JSC.

On the news feeds today, Labour did start this whole ball rolling with destroying the landing cards in 2009 so the trail of cookie crumbs lead straight back to them.

Neither of the two statements about Labours involvement have been proven to be true though have they? In fact the home office claimed at one point that it was done in 2010 under the coalition government.

Also it is this governemnt (tory) who have been trying to deport these people, fully furnished with the knowledge that these records had been destroyed.

I, like X2, don't understand the objections. It seems like a sensible and logical move, I have always wondered why it wasn't a bit more secure anyway. So long as they follow the Post Office model and allow simple non photo ID, and ask people to confirm, rather than prove their identity.

FIAT currency like £'s and $'s is going to be used in a minority of trade over the next decade. Crypto and the Bitcoin phenomenon is here to stay.

Liberal celebrity leeches are queing up to represent these vermin as I type. Before you can say pond life they'll be in blighty living the easy life at our expense. Never fails. They should receive a good, long, fair trial. Then led away for execution.

Are they?

Care to name any and back it up?

I'm surprised at what it has become. It will be a shame if they lose you Biker but there are few worth hanging on for anymore. A disagreement is fine. An argument is alright, name calling isn't really but it has a place and sometimes it's funny. But every thread that is not in total support of the few ringleaders descends into pettiness by page 2 normally and doesn't seem to get back on track. It's ridiculous and JSC, and TDH are lucky that they could start an argument in an empty room cos that's what it is going to be soon.

I really don't know why anyone turns up to vote in a local election, there really isn't any point. if you must go, just spoil your ballot paper - that really does wind up the bureaucratic mind! At least 10 minutes fun on a dull count night.

I've been to loads of counts. Nobody cares, they just get piled up to the side.

No mate it hasn't. I come on for a bit of argy bargy now and then. It gets delivered back to me swiftly and then I bugger off again for a few weeks. Come back, same dozen or so people fighting with themselves and Simon!

I'd humbly suggest the classic English response does fit here. France is a lovely country, just a shame about the French! We are out of Europe soon, so the rest of the World is your oyster - go and enjoy.

We are not leaving Europe. We're leaving the EU. Geographically the UK will remain where We are. We will be the same distance from the rest of the world as we are now!

Dear god. How old are you? 3? I'm "hoirible" because my views differ?��

No I think youre horrible because of the language you use, because of the way you present your arguments and belittle anyone who has different views to you. I can tell from the words use and the your opinions that you're older, probably in your sixties and definetly male. That doest matter so much but you build a picture and I bet I'm not far off. So I don't know you personally but based on what you put here I don't think much of you. I disagree with plenty on here and it's not a problem.
