Re: The trial of James Andrew Husband and Gary Dobbie

Yog. You go too far though that might be a product of your parents and the area where you lived.- would you deny others the chance you had. I don't know your background and I suspect that we have never met. Did you live in a nice three bedroomed house with a garden full of flowers and a school where...

Re: Hello! I'm back! Is there anybody here?

One of the things that would be useful on some folk albums is a lyric sheet. I don't know whether folk singers inflect in a particular way but I was listening to Eliza Carthy's Anglicana album the other night and I was struggling to follow the words. Do a Google search on "collection song lyrics" a...

Re: Damian Le Bas, Radio 4 Book of the Week

I feel sure that in the past, especially in the so called "lower classes", prejudices were not as rampant as they now seem to be. You've used the 'c' word. Someone will be along shortly to tell you how wrong you are, but also how preposterous it is that you are wrong... Don't worry about it - we al...

Swill bins for what waste food there was for the pigs. Gas street lamps where I lived in Farnham, Surrey, etc., etc.
Swill bins? what luxury - we didn't have anythng to go in any bin.

I feel sure that in the past, especially in the so called "lower classes", prejudices were not as rampant as they now seem to be. When you look at how the poor used to live when we were young there was not much difference between standards. I can remember the kettle springing a leak and it was the ...

Re: Damian Le Bas, Radio 4 Book of the Week

Did anyone hear this morning's Book of the Week https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b4ztdd#play It is written and read by Damian Le Bas, who was at Horsham - his Mother was an Art Teacher there after he started. He is a gypsy and was terrified of anyone learning his heritage. What a talent for descr...

Re: Politics

. When I mentioned the global financial crisis some time ago Dr Scuffil in Germany posted: "What crisis? We didn't feel it here". Just realised that when I replied to the Freak I omitted something important: The facts relating to the Herstadt crisis and failure were covered up and subject to strict...

Re: Politics

The countries that got into trouble in and after 2007 (Northern Rock first, in the UK, October 2007, if I remember rightly - Northern Rock had been a stable building society before the Tories under John Major started encouraging demutualisation) and then the US, Iceland, Spain and Ireland.

How many “Western” countries are not in the same situation you have just described?
I would say the USA is in exactly that situation. Of the few countries where I have worked I would exclude all exept PERHAPS Spain. I cannot speak for others.

Re: Politics

The reason young people are buying loads of consumer stuff is that they get it on tick. This wouldn't have been allowed when we were younger. You were only allowed two and a half times your annual salary for a mortgage and you had to have an argument with your bank manager just to get a modest over...

Re: Politics

Freaky? had everyone combing the FT in an effort to be Warren Buffett. The subsequent speculative splurge in loose cash ended in a bust and many of the shares were sold off to the big financial institutions as people struggled to liquidise some money to survive. Only a few (like Warren Buffett and ...

Re: Reading to the dormitory

.Like the press and MPs we do forget the "other class" of boarding schools - borstals - whose form of education seems not to have been of any quality " There were two other types of boarding school, both run by the Army: Apprentice Colleges and Junior Leader Regiments.

Re: Politics

But maybe CH will survive. Heritage and tradition will still be a big pulling point. Dodgy Russian oligarchs by the truckload will want to send their children to English boarding schools. CH will flourish. Ivan and Svetlana marching proudly into lunch. One big problem though: this is supposed to be...
