Newres is the worst kind of liberal remoaner.

I find it ironic that the right wing extremists on here

I take issue with both of these statements as they do not apply to either.
There are much worse "liberal remoaners" out there than newres, likewise I doubt if any on here are "Right wing extremists"
This is one of the main reasons why I rarely post on here nowadays.
Hysterical name calling rather than than sensible, adult debate.
However I am led to believe that the rhetoric on here is mild compared to that of "'social' media" to which I do not subscribe.

And the IRA behaved fouly as well during the troubles. Your another of these "I'm so ashamed of my countries past" brigade. I bet Churchill causes you great consternation. A racist imperialist who fought against the most evil regime ever.🤣

Newres, I just wondered out of interest what your thoughts are of those who desecrated the memorials to WWII Bomber Command and WPC Yvonne Fletcher?

Sorry to divert the topic but seemed a good time to ask the question. Left wing liberal's ideas on such things interest me.

Had some good nights in that pub back in the eighties!
Used to be packed out most nights. Was the "in pub" amongst many at that time!
Called The White House in those days.
Live bands etc.

The resident troll has destroyed any constructive debate. EVERY one of us is racist in that one's tiny mind and any conversation inevitably leads to him / her / it accusing all and and sundry of being a white imperialist.

Perhaps best to leave him / her to it then and move on to pastures new?

Thought I'd bump this one as the question perhaps needs answering again!
With it now reduced to bickering over mainly one subject by the few that remain and the resident wind up merchant Is there much point of this or other forums anymore?
Many of the past regulars have disappeared (even AC is rare now!) maybe because of this or maybe for other reasons but it seems that varied, lively, constructive debate is rare on here now.
Anyone else?

The fact that the only active threads on here are Islamaphobic speaks volumes though dont you think? Oh and trains.

A "phobia" is an "irrational fear" of something or a situation.
If you were left in a cage with a wild tiger then you would not have a phobia of it, or tigerphobia, the fear would be rational, the tiger can do you harm.
If you were left in a cage with a mouse and you had a fear of it then this would be a phobia as the mouse can do you no harm.
The fear would be irrational.
See? tongue.gif

OK, lets examine this, you say 'these days' Did you during your literature course never come into contact with the works of P G Wodehouse? How about Nabakov? surely you read Nabakov? How about Kingsley Amis? or Susan Sontag? Ever read any of Einstein's papers? Because if you had you would know that these greats of literature have, along with many others all used this structural device.

Doesn't sound like you paid much attention in class, surely you used Fowler's usage and grammar guide during your time studying? Because Fowler says it's OK. Or, just maybe you got a degree in bull**** from the Walter school of bull****?

Nice one TM!! laugh.gif

Do you think HS2 is going to fix that!

In the case of HS2 only on the North /South corridor.
Other routes will need further investment of some sort or other otherwise the crowding etc. problems will continue.
It's like all the other services in the UK, NHS, energy, roads etc.
Unless the population growth is stemmed, which is unlikely, then further investment will be needed or they will crumble.

I completely agree, but those things would be there without the family living in them.

Yes they would but, be honest, they wouldn't have quite the same attraction to tourism would they?

Surely we can now see HS2 should be stopped, we have far more important things deserving investment.

Fair enough comment OTE, but if so I don't want to hear any more how Japan, France et al have superior rail systems to us and no more complaining about overcrowded trains because the current network is bursting at the seams and without new lines will not cope in the future.
(actually, as many of you point out, it's not coping now!)
All to do with our ever increasing population!! rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

The people responsible for providing us with a rail ‘service’, or not as the case may be.

So Network Rail, Hitachi, Agility Trains, DFT, GWR and all the sub contactors associated with the electrification project?
Here's a list of most of them.

They're not generally very accessible so I don't think you can! You might get as glimpse if there is a big royal event but it's not like you can pop over and have tea with them!

i was counteracting the statement that "Foreign tourists don't come here to see the Royal family anymore than we go to Sweden to see theirs."
Also they may not come to see the family per-see, but to see all that is associated with the.
Buckingham Place, Windsor Castle, Queen's Guard etc.

Not exactly an excuse is it?
Anyway you have made clear your anti rail feelings and that neither you nor your family use the railway so why comment?
