Re: Reshuffle

As an occasional viewer of GB News and Talk TV, some of the content is pointing towards Richard Tice as a vote collector from traditional Tory voters. They could be right and the reshuffle bringing Call me Dave back seems to have boosted the popularity of the Reform Party. I'm somewhat puzzled as wh...

Re: Gillian Keegan - potty mouth

From what I can gather from all the chit chat about RAAC there is only a problem if the membrane fails and moisture gets in. Does this offer an opportunity to extend the life of the concrete? Perhaps if it is still sound it could be sealed? Once water ingress has occurred, it is then too late to sa...

Re: Gillian Keegan - potty mouth

I quite enjoyed hearing her talk dirty. Meanwhile - does anybody remember High Alumina Cement ? I most certainly do remember HAC and also its use by Laing's in parts of the Barbican and delivered by RMC in 8yd drum trucks. I wonder how many architect/specifiers are now shitting themselves if any ar...

Re: "Hell of a guy" awards 2022

I would have to propose Max Headroom as I did last time. Every time he opens his mouth, out comes the usual obvious so-called solutions. I can always rely on Starmer for stating the frikkin obvious.

Re: Palace "Race Row" deepens

I am 100% convinced she went there with the intent to find fault, and if none reared up, she would have invented one just to gain her 15mins of fame.

Re: Stuff you won't see in the "newspapers"

We can all remember those "wokiest wokes from wokeland" who couldn't wait to take in a Ukrainian family. Anywho. Apparently they have had enough and these families our now being put up in hotels. Absolute bollocks!!! The young widow and her twin girls I am housing are safe in with me no m...

Larry Fox has commented though:-

@SalmanRushdie
following the cowardly attack on him earlier today. We must protect free speech with all our might and utterly condemn those who wish to silence with violence.

Okay, understood. The one I use is Jeyes and that seems to deter flies and other bin seeking bastards.

Re: Archie Battersbee

As a father who lost his only son as a new-born, I would not have wished to keep him in limbo, alive while his brain was completely inactive. The parents are not facing up to the reality of their son died and is only being kept bodily alive by the machines. My personal view is they are being cruel t...

Re: The Cock Up at Dover.

The only way I know of getting the local French on your side is to invite them in for a glass or two of good wine and don't let them leave without a bottle! . If you can stomach it, then driving an old 2 CV will also put a smile on their faces!. Make sure that wine is locally grown, pressed and bot...

Re: The Cock Up at Dover.

I think you have summed it up perfectly. Rather that throw in the towel, however, we are thinking of starting a small business in SW France. I have always fancied a Deer Park and this place looks promising. What do you think? https://www.french-property.com/sale-property/329-EL3245?source=featured-...

Re: Boris is going.

Is our Party system the best way to elect a Government.? It is basically tribal. Where there is no overall majority a Government can only be formed if different tribes agree to collaborate; as soon as they do that, any idea of representation goes out the window. :( This is my biggest fear! My mind ...

Re: The Cock Up at Dover.

This kind of frikkin ignorance from the French was always going to happen as soon as Brexit was started. There was a time when we'd take the car from Pompey to Caen on Brittany Ferries and then drive all the way down into deepest SW France where we had a holiday house and stay from the late spring i...

Re: Boris is going.

There are plenty, including me, who would argue that the outcome of the last general election was more about the avoidance of Jeremy Corbyn than a ringing endorsement of Boris, besides which, any man who can appoint Dominic Cummings to any sort of position must surely have his judgement called into...
