Re: POLITICS CORNER

I thought Bercow was going to have her for "frustrating parliament" yesterday. Anyway she's run away, will get nothing from the johnny foreigners so on a hiding to nowt, another huge waste of taxpayers money, she won't have gone on her own with an overnight bag. :smile:

Re: POLITICS CORNER

You could be right Kev or when she comes home with her tail between her legs the deal will have to go to the vote. She will lose and a motion of no confidence will be put forward. I though John Bercow was going to insist on the vote as scheduled for today, still might happen, he said last night that...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

So the current London Crossrail (2) project is 2 Billion over budget, it should have been finished next year but there is no longer any firm date for completion. Some of the new stations are still at footings level. The trains and rolling stock are not compatible with the signalling system. 15 Billi...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I thought that once it was on the parliamentary agenda so to speak it had to happen. I'm obviously mistaken there. She knows she has got to the end game of her tenure of the position. Won't make any difference at all she is just delaying the inevitable.

Re: PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS

Why should you stop paying national Insurance contributions when you retire? Quick answer is you don't have to. Longer answer is that at 16 years of age I started contributing, not much granted, (about £150 a year) but that was in 1970. As my wages went up so did my contributions. Personally I paid...

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

Indeed Stanley and easy enough to say when both your legs work as intended a bit more difficult when one leg has had practice of going awol for 20 years or more. My turned out foot is much improved but I still have to make a concious effort to step with it straight. I was happy with the fact that I ...

On day one of my treatment the physio's told me that if left alone without any treatment at all everyone will recover given time. What they do is alter the quality or end result of the recovery.

Picked up from my Mother in Law Louise and her sisters, Sally uses it of course. That side of the family hail from around Brough so possibly Cumberland, Westmorland or Higher Dales. I had never heard it until I bumped into the Abramic lot courtesy of my good lady. :smile:
