I did that in desperation years ago Sir W.
Welcome to the club. You'll find it most enjoyable and rewarding!! tongue.gif biggrin.gif

I am also most happy being an old git. I tried for years to be nice...but gave up after one particular incident when I held a door open for what I presumed was a young lady...only to be told and I quote "you mysongyst ****"....I've also had plenty of "what you looking at"...when smiling at people....so head down...no eye contact...headphones on. Welcome to 21st Century Britain.🤣🤣🤣

That is indeed a tale of woe. I thought that I was having a bad week due to my washer dryer breaking and scratching the passenger side of my car on a lamppost but I think that you might have managed to trump that.

Trump? HOW very dare you!!!!! FASCIST!!!!!

To update those who are remotely interested, the whole day was worthy of countless expletives. Firstly the initial ticket was subject to a refund less a £10 fee after submitting a multi-page application. Arrived in Guildford in good time , and spent an hour trudging round in torrential precipitation seeking a cafe for a bite and coffee. Fast food outlets by the score ,but ask for a cheese sandwich and one has more chance of procuring crack cocaine, (so I am reliably informed). Wandered into the courthouse and strip searched by a couple of chaps one wouldn't wish to argue with. Confiscated my pocket knife, (which I now have to apply to the court for), before escorting me to the waiting area. Eventually called after 3 hours, spent all of 5 minutes saying my piece and then back to station as the train was pulling out. Eventually arrived home at 19.30 completely *******.

On a positive I now have made made a conscious decision not to help anyone but to become a miserable old git. cool.gif Comments accepted.


You took a knife to court???🤣🤣🤣

Priceless....

Thank you Biker1. Thought it a bit steep to charge £10 but as my train experience of the present system is limited I saw no reason to question it.
In response the TDH's assumption that I am guilty of some heinous crime all I can say is "No Comment!" rolleyes.gif

Come on Sir Will.. are you trying to tell us the worst thing you have done is run through fields of wheat??? Me? I was a bad lad when I was a young un. One lives and learns...

Thanks for that. Just to allay any fears that I am about to be posted to the colonies I have been asked to attend as character witness so you are not getting rid of me that quickly. Incidentally it has been postponed once again so may be prudent to do it on the day.

Come on Sir Will. Come clean... what you been up to?😂

Try “Let it Go”.

Actually I was disgusted by that. What decent human being takes a baseball bat to a defenceless and trapped animal. But honestly, I think your online radicalisation should concern you.

Me? Let it go? You have been the one going on about stopping Brexit. For 3 years...And then you agree with me about Jo Maugham but say I am "radicalised". You are funny....

Anyway I can't offer much on the subject of books I am afraid. I used to read a lot but only focus on the far right Twitter accounts now. 😂😂😂😂

I was unable to start reading this book on the train due to various issues but started reading it on Christmas Eve and then couldn't put it down until I had finished reading it because it was so addictive. For those of you who are unaware of the plot of the original, it concerns a dystopian future where a religious theocracy has taken over most of what was the USA due to a falling birth rate amongst other things. One of the key plot points is that certain fertile, unmarried women are now the property of the state and are forced to have children with men in positions of authority and then give up their children to the wives of those men. I would happily give this book 5/5 and say that it is a deserved joint winner of the Booker Prize in 2019.

I'm currently reading "Peope once respected me as a QC, but a fox and social media ruined my career" by Jolyon Maugham

Spot on!

In spite of three years worth of remain enthusiasts explaining why Brexit would be a horrific mistake the Party to staunchly maintain its Brexit position and made it its flagship policy wiped the board. What don't the LibDems and Labour understand about public opinion? The Country, outside the metropolitan bubble, simply wants out of Europe.


Quite and all the bollox about including labour as remain is just that...a lot of labour leave voters would have still voted labour.

So my guess 52% leave... funny that it's almost like people are not persuaded by tosh on social media... (and newres)

Quick question, did all those people who have been returning Labour MP'S since the dawn of time suddenly become thick when they voted Tory? Or, were they thick when they were voting labour, just didn't know it. Answers please on a self addressed polling card.


Emily Thornberry thinks so, allegedly... not sure who to believe, lady "rochester" nugee or caroline flint???🤣🤣🤣

Ironic really, because it was within the grasp of those who wanted one. They just had to refuse the election. But history now. It's time to move on. We are where we are and we just have to hope Johnson acts responsibly since all Tory MPs swore an oath of allegiance.

Interesting perspective. You only want an election if the result is what you want? Democracy eh? What a sh1t.... and before you join the "but 52 percent voted for pro remain parties" that is rubbish. 30 percent (or 3 million voters) of pro leave voters voted Labour anyway. It's in the DNA. So as even Verhoftwat admitted it's over.


In other news it's good to see some commie lefty MPs taking it well...

Boris Johnson would have been absolutely destroyed if he had participated in either the BBC or ITV one-to-one interviews so in my opinion he is the one who got off lightly.

He knew if he said nothing in the campaign apart from "Get Brexit Done"..that a big majority would follow.
Simples.

Back on the railway topic of this thread, there is a major change to the timetable as from the start of next week.
Most times will be changing.

There will now be 3 trains per hour all day each way between Newbury and Reading / London.
PLUS and hourly service all day each way from London to the West Country
PLUS an increased number of aggregate trains between the Somerset quarries and various destinations in the Home Counties.

The main message being, avoid Thatcham Level Crossing if you can!! tongue.gif


All I want for Xmas is for people to stop committing suicide on the railway. Poor souls. Nightmare for commuters as well.😪

Trains are crowded now. How will they be able to cope with such a massive increase in passenger numbers that this would bring about without first putting in place the necessary increase in infrastructure?

Dont worry about that biker. Everything free. Luxury communism now!!🤣👍

Economic madness. Under his plans Theresa May will get a 26k payout. 😂

Well, I've just layed a century on Labour to win, got 12's. Was going to put something on lib Dems but it's just a waste of money.

You were done. You can get 25s with Corals or Ladbrokes.
Lib Dems are 400s and a Conservative majority is 4/9.

Locally 1/8 Conservative and 9/2 Lib Dems (Skybet)

My first thought is that every FTSE and FTSE250 company will move its registered office to Alderney or Douglas and that tax take will crash.

My 2nd thought is that to make up for this shortfall all middle earners (25k+) will see significant tax rises to compensate for this.

My 3rd thought is that they really are living in some sort of parallel universe. 🤣
