    TV advertising used to be 5k a 30 second showing.10 to 20k at peak times. Now its a tenth of that. That's because everyone fast forwards through them. Its also why ITV are trying to get you to pay a subscription.

    Then you have incorrectly defined adverts as only for things you don't want which would of course result in you being immune to them.
    You couldn't be more wrong. In these modern times the last thing I want is for an…

    Surely this has always been the case? Have any of you tried reading Charles Dickens in its original form?

    The British Empire?!! Bloody hell, none of these migrants lived through that!

    The reality is that some migrants want to come here because they can speak English. Not French, Greek, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian or Spanish - but…

    So hopefully, the face mask dictat will be removed before Christmas.

    Will the government ever stop panicking every time there is a new variant? If a potent vaccine-avoiding variant did come along, the measures introduced this week would do nothing to stop…

    I saw this online with a rather lengthy accompanying text that would probably bore everybody so I will summarise it. It seems to me that refugees are not breaking any law by crossing the english channel so they have every right to enter British waters.…

    If they were genuine refugees they would have stopped long before Europe. Of course they is an economic factor. We are seeing those who can afford the traffickers, that does not mean they have not lost everything and fled from…

    My Sister in law longs to re-visit. She's been there 12 times and has many friends in Joburg.

    Well, some scientists reckon that the virus is here to stay, and I'll be blowed if I'm going to wear an ineffective mask for the rest of my life.

    I agree with the governments policy on processing refuges at the refugee camps rather than just on the basis that you had enough money to pay he people traffickers.

    So a lot of designer and editing stuff? My son did a lot of stuff in Flash, but now mostly writes in HTML directly. Although I will have to ask him to re-write this for me as he'll wince when he reads this.
