That's the idea, glad we're finally on the same wavelength. I take it we can count on your presence at next month's meeting of the bloated capitalists club? And what shall I tell the menial on the gate you'll need a space in the courtyard for? Your jet, your limo or might you be turning up in your yacht?


Much appreciate the kind invite but of course you should be aware that us truly wealthy top elites are semi recluse and very rarely socialise except with a very few selected individuals.

There is also the delicate balance of not being seen as too ostentatious that is why you may perchance see me around the local lanes riding my hybrid bicycle. I do of course have to be kept within sight of my security detail. rolleyes.gif

Good for you, I can't get a jet to land in my back garden, the Heli comes in quite nicely though. So much nicer door to door.


Yes of course helicopter for local national journeys.
Probably do have enough space on the estate for landing the jet but it would probably be too much trouble to sort out the planning permission. And of course being environmentally aware I do try to keep flights to the minimum. Time for us superpower CEO's is very important and I cannot risk being held up in the dire traffic snarl ups that is our road infrastructure at present even though the Bristol is quite comfortable to travel in. rolleyes.gif

I personally don't own a helicopter, cost Vs usage didn't work for me. So we just hire one when we want one, usually it's for the f1 and Ascot so it wouldn't make sense.


Helicopter for F1? Why I would not dream of that I use the executive jet of course! rolleyes.gif

Maybe your imaginary helicopter flown by your imaginary pilot can touch down on the deck of your imaginary boat on its imaginary mooring before transferring to your imaginary limo and being driven by your imaginary chauffeur to one of your imaginary stores! That would be nice! laugh.gif Still if it makes you happy while you flip burgers thats ok with us. wink.gif


Oh come on do keep up please! We don't flip burgers in my Michelin starred owned restaurants even a Burger King attendee like you should have that kind of knowledge! rolleyes.gif

As a follow up, France has now banned the use of mobile phones in cars even while parked unless in designated parking spots or in one's own driveway. Using one on the move? Immediate suspension of licence, at the roadside. No mucking about over there! rolleyes.gif


Ok thanks for the heads up I will ensure that the chauffeur does not answer the phone and ensure I have my PA on-board whilst in France! rolleyes.gif

Shame we don't live on the coast, nice gap that needs filling there. Set up an agency providing people to scrape seagull s*** off boats as it looks as if boat owners have to do that task themselves. We could even use the boats to collect the cheap labour. laugh.gif


What using imaginary scrapers to scrape imaginary s**t off of imaginary boats.
Well ok providing our couple of Walter Mitty type posters can actually pay of course! rolleyes.gif

Don't forget they also have four doctors to assess all the disability claimants that they are claiming to be perfectly able to work.......even those that just happen to die just after the assessment and those that have serious illnesses such as cancer etc. Even though NHS Consultants disagree with their assessments.
Of course nothing to do with they get paid very well for every person they get off benefits though is it?

It may be for you you little ******. I'm proud of what I've got, jealous retards don't understand having pride in ones achievements. Probably because you've got nothing to be proud of.


Having, supposedly, a large wedge a large boat and I expect lots of bling on display is probably not too much to be proud of is it? Most of the better achievements in my opinion have been made by people who have had very little material gains and certainly do not brag about it on a small provincial newspaper forum! Still it's a free world still, at the moment so crack on. rolleyes.gif

Err, what do we want him to be doing? Boasting about how profitable his business is, what a big expensive car and boat he's got, and the resort he spent his holiday? That's the Tory way, so I can understand the gripes laugh.gif

For us little people, it could have been a blessing in disguise. Having to rely on public transport to get about in West Berkshire might just have graphically demonstrated the dire state it's reached to him personally. Somehow I doubt it; if you are well heeled enough to regard the cost of taxi's or private hire cars as a minor irritation, it's not going to be much of a lesson, let alone deterrent. Again, no surprise, that's the Tory way!


"Loads a money" fakers. People who need to brag about how much money they are worth, how important a job they have, how big a business they have etc. are usually the Walter Mitty types! Nearest they have got to a life afloat is probably on the boating lake in Viccy park and as for holidays, Butlins at Skeggy for 10 days.

Still it keeps them amused and whilst day dreaming on this forum they are not causing havoc elsewhere are they! rolleyes.gif

Seasons Greetings to all!

So, it seems that our local Councillors feel that we have no money to properly refurbish the Council's Waterside Centre, so they are looking for a partner to develop the place for them. Assurances that it will be 'for the benefit of the community' have been given.

Isn't it rather odd to be told we can't find a few bob for a lick of paint and a tidy round, when we can find the cash to build a splendid new cafe pavilion just yards away in a presently green park.

Surely something seriously amiss here?


Come on we have to finance the New Jack O' Newbury bronze, can't have it all you know! rolleyes.gif

The position of any particular cruel activity on a cruelty scale, doesn't in my view mean that it should be permisable. That is to say, how cruel an activity is compared to another doesn't justify it.

I see the hunting bill as a class war bill, but that doesn't mean it wasn't credible; however, I do agree there are bigger issues reguards animal welfare than hunting with hounds.


It may be a good thing St. Theresa was given a bloody nose or we may have ended up with the Tories bringing back hunting the Peasants again! rolleyes.gif

Go hug a terrorist. I have already suggested ways. You chose to ignore them. Cos it suits your agenda. You can come back again if you like as I know you have to have the last word. The pub bore.


You have failed to suggest ways to identify future terrorists and just resort to insults as usual.
I even agreed to round up these terrorists with you if you were able to explain how to identify them. You completely failed to do so.
You insult the security services and police by suggesting they have failed in their duties by not rounding up these terrorists as you imply it is very easy to identify them before they committed these atrocities.

Unless these individuals make clear and dangerous threats, and of course not many are going to do that, I certainly would not be able to detect one walking through any of our town's and cities.

If you have a system to detect them then please get in touch with the security services as they need as much assistance as possible instead of your implying they have failed in your eyes by not rounding them up.

Read my last post again!

That was how I interpreted your reply, hence the "is that correct" which is why I asked you to clarify?

Do try to answer the queries given rather than try to obfuscate with a non answer.

All I am trying to elucidate is how do you identify and round up those who you think will be going to commit these terrible types of atrocities. If you can demonstrate how to do this you will have my full backing plus the gratitude of most Britain's.

I'd start with anyone practicing shariah. Thats normally a good indicator. Oh and those holding up placards with things like "death to the infidels" and "make London Londonistan" Also anyone returning from a "holiday" to places like Somalia, Libya, or an extended trip to Turkey. Oh and yes profiling works.

Then Id insist on CCTV and sound in all the mosques.

It may impinge on freedoms but its a small price to pay.


So what you are suggesting is round up all Muslims, is that a correct interpretation?

And how do you know someone has been on holiday in those countries you have listed if they first go to another country and then back to another EUropean country before coming back to Britain?

I am not disagreeing with the idea of rounding up terrorists but trying to demonstrate it is not quite as easy as you are implying. If you can demonstrate just how easy it is I feel sure the security services, police and the General public at large will be very grateful indeed.

You would rather wait to see if someone commits an atrocity rather than apprehend them before? And Im sure you'd be the first trying to get them released as they hadn't killed anyone just yet.


Just answer the question asked. How do you identify someone who is going to commit an atrocity?
