Who cares about being called an idiot, we are all allowed our opinions.

Politicians never agree with other parties policies anyway.
We have to be grown up about this and make up our own minds don't we?

The Tories are I reckon currently the strongest party - but who knows how things will be in the next election

General Discussion / Short Break holiday Ideas Please
« on: September 26, 2016, 09:57:25 PM »
I'm looking towards taking my daughter on a short break next year in September.

I want somewhere that has plenty of shops as she loves shopping but with other things of interests as well, such as decent shows or places of interest.

Any advice/ideas please

We are just watching this documentary of the 9/11 horrors.
People in the Twin Towers lived the horror of staying in the burning Tower with no escape death would be smoke inhalation or burning - or jump out of a window and fall to their death.

It's a harrowing documentary all based on fact with real footage.

Some condemned the pictures taken and the coroners office denied anyone 'jumped'

I've sat contemplating which of the two ways I would prefer  to die and I can't make my mind up.

Anyone after giving this some serious thought can say which their preference would be?

If enough people go and vote for someone else then we maybe have just a chance of a different way of doing things - it may be well be a good thing?

It's in disarray, not a lot of purpose or unity, well not enough for me to want to give them my vote anyway.

I'm wondering if it had a knock on and disheartening affect on local councils as certainly in our village which has always been Labour, it's not what it was.

Many people are fed up of the Tories, or so they say.

Which is the party to look towards - LibDems maybe?
Certainly not UKIP

Told by 'who' ?  ;)

He took 61.8% of the vote. Not like I'm that bothered FWIW  8)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-37461219

There was coverage of it on today's news = that's what they reported?
I won't be voting for the party for a long time to come - they have to prove themselves.

Well he's been elected in - I'm not sure 'how' that works as we are told only one in five of his members support him.

Labour has no hope - it will still be a mess.
This chaps no leader.

Our local village recently held and election for District Councillor - the Lib Dems got in.

Next we are to vote on the Parish council - it will be interesting !

General Discussion / Ben Needham

Once again they have a lead which we are told looks as if it may bring them to Ben's body.

The search has started but is in an area where there are many animal remains and also some archaeological remains possible so they have a team of archaeologist helping.

I feel very sad for the family of Ben it must be a living nightmare.

Will they find him?
Is this chap who has come forward telling the truth? It made me so cross when I heard he has held onto this information for all these years - he needs locking up!
I have read that the Police have reported that 'there is more to this' ?

Not sure if we will try it tomorrow actually.
I will have to see where the others want to go.
Failing that I'm out on Thursday with a friend so will see where we end up.

Whilst ever we have people in the country who will work for whatever reasons for very little this problem will continue.

It brings my memory back to the 80's when shops were bringing in the Sunday working day.
In the shop I was in it was generally the younger people and students who would work Sundays, whilst older people like me refused it.
We knew what it would lead to and it was flat rate as well, where as in many jobs Saturday was time and a half and Sunday's double time
Back then it was a trial run - look where we are now with it!

It 'is' a step back.
The days when we stigmatised children/young people are gone and it should stay that way!

Oh dear, what a shame it now looks like something Monkeys have in the Zoo!
Is this in preparation for it to be cut down, or will new branches sprout on it?
