As various probes have now discovered water on other bodies in the solar system it seems inevitable that it exists in a free state elsewhere in the universe. This being so it leads to the conclusion that where there's water there could be life, it may not be intelligent life as we count it but that doesn't matter, it can always join the Labour party.


How dare you blaspheme the messiah JC. Off with your head. JC is the greatest man that has ever lived. He ia a living god.... Oohhhhhhh Jerermy Cobyn, Oh Jeremy Corrrrbyn. 😂

It's neither TDH. Shelley wrote this after the Peterloo massacre and it supports non-violent resistence to injustice.

"Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms and looks which are
Weapons of unvanquished war.
And if then the tyrants dare,
Let them ride among you there;
Slash, and stab, and maim and hew;
What they like, that let them do.
With folded arms and steady eyes,
And little fear, and less surprise,
Look upon them as they slay,
Till their rage has died away:
Then they will return with shame,
To the place from which they came,
And the blood thus shed will speak
In hot blushes on their cheek:
Rise, like lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number!
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you:
Ye are many—they are few!"
Shelley

Not sure what to make of that!
Is it a call to arms to overthrow the government "rise like lions" or a pacifist saying you can kill us all and we will just take it? 😮

Rather than sending a spaceship we could just shine a laser on neighbouring stars and any orbiting planets and see if anyone shines back - we might not be able to get there but we could at least make contact.


Contact with what though? Bl00dy aliens coming here and taking our jobs.... laugh.gif

But even those will die in the furnace of the Sun. Anyway, we were living in natural balance of its habitat, but then the Brits invented the Industrial Revolution and scientists took over from religious leaders and now our population has exploded, possibly out of control.

Yep. Lets blame the British and the scientists.👍

Thought this may be a little light relief to the antics of May , JC and the Brexiteers .( available on itunes ).

Saw a report today that the eminent physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawkins has concluded that Man needs to prepare plans to leave this planet in the not to distant future . ( Sorry to all you geeks out there but I have not the foggiest how to post a link on here ).
Anyway he has proposed building a small spacecraft called a starchip , ( just a few inches in length ) , which will travel along laser beams at a fifth the speed of light , ( roughly 100,000,000 mph ) , reaching it's proposed destination , Alpha Centauri , in a mind blowing 25 years .
Though it would not be able to land it would send back images in the hope that it would show a habitable world that we could exploit , ( my words not his ) , though getting there may be a little problematic .

The debatable question is...........should we even consider it ? It is assumed that the reason we have not been "visited "by intelligent life forms is 1 . The distances involved , and 2 . Intelligent life is probably extremely rare as they have undoubtedly destroyed themselves by war or disease before attaining the ability to transverse the cosmos .


We may have been visited. Not necessarily in the last 4000 years though. Who knows?

Well. My Fascist apologist, who can only think Google, define 'let'.


I've said it all along and I wont apologise but this is one of the reasons why we voted out of the EU. Uncontrolled immigration results in overcrowding and death.

Also showed up the demographic in London these days. The indigineous population no longer exists.

A lot of the victims will sadly be never identified as they probably never "existed" in this Country officialy anyway. Sad.

Err, they already do. It's the law. As is deposits held in an escrow account, the right of appeal for unreasonable deductions, checking of right to be in the country, rent appeal etc etc.


I have letted in my yoof. I had a 600 deposit in the early 80s and I lost it all. Despite my flat being in a better condition when I left than when I arrived. There are good landlords yes and like in all walks of society you can get unlucky and get a bad one. No easy answers.

What you conveniently fail to mention is the sheer number of tenants who approach us asking "if we pay cash direct can you do a better deal?". If people want to to deal with landlords who do that rather than go through agents whose duty of care is to both parties then tough luck. No contract no comeback. And these tenants think they're being clever, getting one over on the system.


But its all they can afford. They cant find a 6 grand deposit. However landlord's are unscrupulous if they house people who they know cant legally afford to pay. In the gambling industry we have to check proven sources of income before accepting on line activity. I suggest the same checks and regs be put in place. Landlords should have a duty of care to the tenants and any neighbours. It would also help identify the real number of people in the Country and just how many houses we need to build.

And do you know they weren't subletting? We know it's common..


The definiton of sub letting is irrelevant. They won't have had contracts. Just a you scratch my back deal. The cost of living in this area is astronomical. The left has made this very political. I dislike that. Especially the likes of Linekar and Allen who seem to be co-ercing the have nots to riot. I would rather a full investigation be done quickly to hopefully put things right for others. Lessons need to be learned and it is no time for political procrastinating.

That's almost bizzare; two per flat; where did that come from? As far as subletting is concerned, to me, its rather like ticket touting, the unacceptable face of capitalisim. Getting a 'return' for doing nothing, absolutley nothing. And people moan about benefit theft!


The 2 per flat was a generalisation so apologies for that. Officially just over 300 people lived in 120 flats. Estimates put it at 6 to 700 though. And if you are illegal you have to live somewhere...Again just relaism. No criticism.

They won't be incinerated, probably find d them as lump of carbonised flesh, usually find them in corners, quite often of bedrooms, and under the beds. Usually in the classic 'pugilist' pose. Might be able to find enough DNA if they're lucky.


Also. Supposed to be 2 per flat. Talking about 600 in 120 flats. Most subletted. No criticism of that. But shows massively how much under estimated the UK population is. Unfortunately many many of the dead will be unindentified as they were not here legally.

100+ people by all accounts. Why not be truthful? If people lived there and have not been seen since then they are gone. Landlords should NOT be voting on any laws in parliament to do with building or fire regulations in Parliament. Conflict of interest. Would not be allowed in the Corporate world. Change is needed. But blame of individuals is dangerous. People are looking for individuals to take anger out on. It's the system that is broken. Fix that first and then look to see if any blame should be assigned.


The authrorities need to update the figures. I have seen figures banded about of 350.

I agree that they are dangerous eyesores. Where would you put the thousands of people though? They would have to be relocated from places like Kensington and they would resist. Not that I blame them for that. It is home to them. I don't have an answer and I doubt even JC does unlesss he landgrabs from the rich.

Dangerous yes, but eyesore is a trivial concern. It is too early to say, but it looks like people needn't have died for the sake of poor building control and regulations.

Rolling in it doesn't mean it is spent wisely; however, whether or not it is because of social neglect, the fact remains she will be feeling contrite right now. I see she was too scared to meet residents today.

So it does compute.


Just give everyone a 5 bedroom house, wherever they want ro live. Simples. Surprised JC hasn't promised it... Yet..
