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.

At least the post was Newbury related and not abusive!

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.

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.

I thought you were at the meet up we had some years ago at the hogshead? Could be wrong but it's not important. In fact it's better because you're a horrible person. And the person I met there seemed ok.

"There is a widespread view among practitioners of female genital muatilation (FGM) that it is a religious requirement, although there is no unequivocal link between the practice and religion"

The first line of the link you've posted suggests otherwise. Also I didn't say Muslims don't do it, I said it is not exclusively Muslim. Perhaps if your inbred boss eyes weren't swivelling around so much you would read and comprehend a little better. Honestly I met you once and thought you were alright, what happened?

It is islamaphobic to criticise Muslims over FGM becaise it's not a Muslim problem. It's practised by plenty of backwards people who all believe in different made up deities.

Benyon supports fox hunting, badger culling, and voted not to include the animal sentience clause in the recent vote about adopting EU guidelines into law.

But at the end of the day it gives the snowflakes and some hairy warted woman in a tweed suit and sensible shoes the feeling they're doing something for 'the sisterhood'. Lots of jobs don't 'need' to be done, don't need a greeter at the car dealership, don't need someone to make me a skinny latte, don't need need people from charities ringing me up, but they do. As you say, "its a job". Sadly.

I have never seen a greeter in a car dealership, receptionist maybe. Some mobile and not deskbound who organise the first part of your experience and make sure you're getting the right help. The people from charities are generating revenue for said charity and presumably commission for the company that pays them. The grid girls do nothing to help the sport, they are there purely to look pretty. They don't necessarily need to be completely removed on my opinion but the role needs to be changed to make F1 bosses appreciate the value

But it's a job, and I'll bet no one asked the girls if they minded losing it.

Of course not, because they know what the answer would be. But I doubt it's a job, It's probably a gig through an agency and not so much lost as discontinued. But my point is that it is not a job that offers any value. Nothing changes if they are not there.

Personally I think only girls should be allowed to drive in F1 and then maybe we could have young men in lycra parading around the pits.
Seriously though, as you point out what are the girls who are presently employed in this field expected to do? Tescos here we come.

Doing a job that's not needed, not required and offers no value, because you happen to be a (good looking) woman, is as bad as being on benefits.

I think the issue is that many are unhappy with the way we currently objectify people and how our society values looks over talent sometimes.

The issue here, and it's the same with the darts, the grid girls offer no value. They don't sell anything, they're not really doing a job that is needed and ultimately even if it's only a minority who object, It's a great excuse to save a few quid.
