I’d always hoped that we’d flush Ulster as a medieval aberration on the UK, not end up envying it as it passed to Eire and the EU.
A.C.M Sir Mike Wigston might be unhappy if you make it harder for him to get spares for his Tucanos.

Your Pizza, Sir?

GOOGLE Pizza (phone order conversation) Hello! Is this Gordon’s Pizza? No sir – it’s Google Pizza. I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry. No sir – Google bought Gordon’s Pizza last month. OK. I would like to order a pizza. Do you want your usual, sir? My usual – you know me? According to our call...

Re: Covid 19 Hardship Fund

My point in my previous post about clarification was actually more aimed to your point "And get the Marketing Department to focus on a targeted nationwide communication campaign aimed at deprived areas." That seemed a very interesting idea. Now i know that there are certain areas in the c...

Re: Covid 19 Hardship Fund

You're a tough critic... :lol: I don't know if it was my screen but I got dates on the right of the screen. Your quote is about the first of two Col A house plays. The one I called sh*t included a lot of crockery being smashed off stage - I remember it for that and Kit's detestable attitude. Macbet...

Re: Covid 19 Hardship Fund

Nothing wrong with being a socialist who condemns the private system, just don't privately educate your own children. Tony Blair etc In this day and age, do affluent families really need to send their children away to give them a good start? Of course; it keeps companies in the family . About 90% o...

So you think Drama is a waste of time at school level? What about Art etc...? the first one I remember was sh*t.

Re: Brexit

The Vote Leave Campaign thingy can surely be wound up now? Nah, there's always more grifting to be done. It's been a success for the backers and the basic campaign principles can be re-used, even if the publicly stated goal has to change. As long as people are unhappy with the type of Brexit they g...

Re: Brexit

Huge financial demands placed on our infrastructure (example the requirement to rebuild every road bridge to take weights of 44 tonnes instead of 35 tonnes Would that, and other infrastructural demands, have needed to be done anyway....?

So you think Drama is a waste of time at school level? What about Art etc...? Drama: the only drama in my day as a) the Shakespeare play set for that summer's O level English Lit which was performed only once; certainly not enough to make anyone interested and b) house plays; the first one I rememb...

Re: Covid 19 Hardship Fund

You're talking like a troglodyte. a person characterized by reactionary attitudes. ie anti Trump the chump. otherwise a hermit. Sounds OK to me seeing how the politicians are bu**ering the world up. I was actually referring to the new Drama building. OK so it is similar to the Globe and will (may) ...

Re: Covid 19 Hardship Fund

Christ's Hospital didn't 'take itself out' of the State system; CH provided an education for poor children long before there was a State system: 1552 as opposed to 1870 (the Elementary Education Act though it didn't come in to force until 1880). I actually have some sympathy for your views on spend...

Truth about politics

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?" The father says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your mother, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the government. We're here to ...
