Re: Politics

The mere thought of another vote or referendum and the possibility of the UK having to continue being ruled by European despots, alcoholics and wannabe's sickens me to the core. I have no problem with some sort of trade deal on tariffs as long as it isn't all in their favour. I don't want their cou...

Re: The Old Blue 2018

On the 'flags' issue, as I recall, anyone has the right to fly the Cross of St. George, but MUST have local authority permission to fly the Union Standard, (Union Jack). Which I feel could be considered offensive. Do I have the right to fly the Red Hand of Ulster flag? OTOH the Union Jack represent...

Re: Identification.

Hang on a minute. I haven't lived in the UK for 14 years now, but are you all saying that there is still no such thing as a government issued ID card? When I first moved to the US, I didn't drive but it was incredibly easy to stroll to the local Department of Motor Vehicles and wait several hours (...

Another here who has no problem with an ID card, I’ve had one in various countries and it certainly made life easier there. I did like being registered as a Guru!
I had to laugh when I read the word Gnu :D :D :D :D

Re: Identification.

Because I was allowed to sign documents on behalf of my employers I had to register my signature with a public registry in Rio. This had to be accompanied by my ID number. I had a problem; my passport number gets changed every 10 years, my NHS number was changed to something I don't know and is so s...

Re: Politics

Firstly I’ll state that I voted Remain and would still love to change things to that result, with my new Irish passport I will still be European. Voting aside, I also was born a citizen of the Irish Republic (which I discovered a year ago) though I haven't got my passport yet. Beware; someone among...

I'm so glad I started this thread. The above threads echo my original thoughts. I do however, get annoyed at the constant use of the word 'Diversity'. . Me too. Just accept that the Huddersfield 20 were practicing diversity. The concept is a foreign invention not suited to these green and pleasant ...

Re: The Old Blue 2018

hmmm... If I click on the "edit" icon, I don't see a "delete" option. Is it hiding somewhere? Am I being blind? Is it to do with different user rights. I have seen and see no objection to you editing by deleting and simply writing "deleted" or similar. Thus anyone who had seen it and wanted to go b...

Re: From the sublime to the ridiculous

My wife and I were both members of PETA, only different organizations. Mine was People Eating Tasty Animals. Anyway, early in our marriage, her doctor told her he wanted to run a test on her that involved the death of a small animal. When she didn’t think much of the idea, he asked her what she woul...

I think you know my views on justice and sentences so don't set me off

Pakistan have this week shown they can do the right thing, somewhat surprisingly to me.
Well known; that was law, the occasional Indian method (mob rule) is also justice though I don't recommend it

Notwithstanding the above, I do think that justice is the supreme value.
As was clearly confirmed by Lord Justice Scrutton in an appeal case.

The difficulty is defining "justice". I suspect that rape victims would consider justice to be the castration of their attackers - others may disagree.

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Anyone familiar with the film Withnail & I will know that the phrase "The Other Place" is used to refer to Eton - Withnail and Uncle Monty having attended Harrow. I've therefore always thought of "The Other Place" to infer a slightly tongue-in-cheek rivalry but nothing more than that. I guess conte...
