  • I won't be courtesying to her or any of them for that matter!


    I see she already stamped her foot down on Harry. She vetoed his Boxing Day Christmas grouse shoot, so no more blood sports for him anymore.


    I like her already.:)

  • Talk about making yourself popular with the royals! Isn't even married to him yet. Just you wait, 'Enry 'Iggins, just you wait! She will get a prod up her commoner bottom if she begins pontificating in that region. Especially as the idiot May has just said she approves of fox hunting.

  • Especially as the idiot May has just said she approves of fox hunting.

    What's the betting that the Tories will use the shenanigans of Brexit to distract while they slip through lifting the ban on foxhunting.

    Young boys in the park jumpers for goalpost that's what footballs all about isn't it.

  • I hate politicians with a passion. They need to be renamed. Any suggestions?

    Well scum is always a good one as it floats to the top.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • I'm sure I read the other day that she wasn't going to go through with the lifting of foxhunting. If I find a article, I'll post it here.

    Politicians say a lot of things that they later then decide to change their minds about.

  • Morgan I'm going to stick your post and replies in the News you didn't know you wanted to know thread.

    ============


    She either has a mental disorder or is a drug addict or both, either way prison is the best place for her, but there is a very serious side to that story.


    She preyed on vulnerable men and punched a blind man she was living with. The rows they had between them risked getting him evicted for all the noise, so as the judge said, all these vulnerable men in the town can sleep safer knowing this predator is locked up for a while.

  • It's people like her that keep Jeremy Kyle in a job.

    I hate him with a passion. He reminds of a smug Roman emperor who puts all his victims in the coliseum to fight each other while he sits back enjoying the show.

    The phrase that immediately springs to mind when I see her is " piece of shit".

    There is so much crap around, wish someone would come up with a method to get rid of all of it.

    Definitely not going to happen now:


    Prime Minister Theresa May has dropped plans to hold a vote on the fox-hunting ban during this parliament.

    The Conservatives promised a vote on repealing the Hunting Act - which bans the use of dogs to hunt foxes and wild mammals in England and Wales - during the 2017 general election campaign.


    But Mrs May told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show there was a "clear message" against it from the public.

    Yes, there was a clear message Mrs May, we're not barbarians! Why did you even consider this in the first place?


    Talk about getting your priorities wrong.


    Glad this is gone. If toffs want to kill things for sport, they can do it to each other and leave the animals alone.

    How about politicians with ...... ?


    a passion for being passionate

    a passion for septic drains

    a passion for numbered Swiss bank accounts

    a passion for inclusivity (of the right types of people)

    a passion for travelling to Third World countries like Barbados and the Maldives, to appreciate their problems

    a passion for educating one's inferiors

    a passion for men/women/badgers (delete as appropriate)

    a passion for after-dinner talks (where I do the talking ..... for a fee)

    a passion for having a grown-up conversation about the NHS at least once a week

    a passion for being perfectly clear

    a passion for Grenfell Tower victims

    a passion for buttoning my jacket as soon as I get out of the car

    Edited once, last by casablanca ().

  • Just for the record, I think there is a lot of good and decent politicians, but then there are those that rise to the top. A bit like cooking meat and the scum rises....

  • I've heard it said that cream and garbage both rise to the surface but garbage will finally sink to the bottom


    The problem is that the garbage that has risen to the surface in Westminster is taking a bloody long time to sink to the bottom

  • An EasyJet captain and his co-pilot have been suspended amid reports they filmed Snapchat videos during a flight.


    The captain, named by The Sun as Michel Castellucci, uploaded clips of his colleague interacting with animated characters generated by the messaging app.

    I like talking on forums, which should not come as too much of a surprise as I have a forum of my own, but those of my parent's generation would probably consider such behaviour childish. I take the same view, at least some of the time, with users of social media.


    But surely there must be a cut off point between childish behaviour and acting like adult. I would've thought that flying a plane would have been such a cut off point, but clearly not in this case!


    What idiots.:S

  • Most of the time the plane is on autopilot so there's very little to do. I once heard that flying a modern jet plane is "Hours of boredom interposed by moments of terror"


    If you're flying across the Atlantic, there's no chance of running into anything so apart from sudden failure of something or a bomb, close attention to the instruments or controls is not needed. I'm not excusing the behaviour but can understand to boredom.

  • That's true, Heero. I guess if the pilots had uploaded their video to a private group or something, they would've got away with it.

  • The days of The High and the Mighty, Pan Am, Imperial Airways, DC3's, Ernest Kellogg Gann, Chuck Yeager and The Right Stuff are long gone. What we have now are highly trained professional aviators flying by computer yet ready to take control if the computer or the plane stops working properly. The pay isn't as good as it used to be but the dedication is still there. So during what is at least 90% tedium, by all means let them play Snapchat or Gin Rummy - during which time I bet their eyes automatically scan the instruments with the requisite frequency.

  • I guess, at least for the time being, there are still pilots in planes, even if they are using snapchat or whatever. It won't too long in the future before pilots become a thing of the past like some of those companies you mentioned. Playing Gin Rummy is not so bad, as long as it does not involved another kind of gin.;)

  • FOR some of us, nothing can be more annoying than the self-service machines at the supermarket.

    Whether it's an "unexpected item in the bagging area" or being told to "please wait, while we verify your bags," we've all heard the familiar sounds.

    And if that wasn't enough, now someone has decided to turn the noises produced by the checkouts at Tesco into a dance track.

    It may sound like your worst nightmare come true, but Twitter user Ben Suff Donk has actually made it the till beeps almost catchy.

    Click the link (the orange writing above) if you dare to hear the dance track. Some people have too much time on their hands!

  • A woman says she is facing a $500 (£357) fine from the US customs agency after a free apple she was given as a snack on a plane was found in her bag.

    Crystal Tadlock, travelling to the US from Paris, said she was saving the fruit for her onward flight to Denver.

    But the apple was revealed in a random search by US border agents after her first flight landed in Minneapolis.

    US Customs and Border Patrol would not comment on the case, but said all agricultural items should be declared.

    The apple was handed out in a plastic Delta Air Lines bag. Ms Tadlock said she did not remove it from the bag, instead putting it in her baggage for the second part of her journey to Denver, Colorado.

    This is bloody ridiculous!


    The lady was given a free apple by the very same airline she was travelling on. It should be the airline who should pay the damn fine. Better still, they, the airline, should be aware of American law, especially as its a American airline.

  • Sounds like some jumped-up jobsworth on a bad day.:(


    Of course there are rules but there's also common sense that seems to have gone absent here.

  • Now, you're first sentence there has given me an idea for a future thread.:) But I agree, no common sense at all, but that also applies to the airline giving away the free fruit to begin with. A complete lack of thought going on.
