  1. We're Holborn Viaduct I'm off up the Apples to Bedfordshire Goodnight me old China's
  2. Talkradio (Sorry, it's my only vice ) Lord Winstone; On Johnson; "He wanted to be a dictator" (I think that was his words) "Astonishing for someone who is a Conservative, who should be conserving ..." On Elon Musk; saying the world is underpopulated ... "The world could support a lot more people if the food supply was sorted out"
  3. Fascinating; I had no idea about that; such food for thought, thank you. So, if you touched someone's knee before the millennium when it was par for the course, and part of a thriving society, that's not ok now, but in her instance it's understandable? Oh, I see How I wish there was room in this understanding for everybody. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2022/jun/19/kelly-holmes-comes-out-gay-lesbian-army "Office for National Statistics figures released last month showed that far fewer people from Holmes’ generation were willing to identify as homosexual than younger adults. In 2020, only 2% of 50- to 64-year-old people said they were gay, lesbian or bisexual, compared with 4.5% among 25- to 34-year-olds."
  4. Absolutely. And I've had experience of immigration in Greece and Cyprus too, so I know it's not just a UK problem. We are being lead in an awful direction. None of it makes sence, and there are so many contradictions. It feels as if order out of chaos is the perfect description. Maybe flood the borders so you can close the borders. I took an interest in the Windrush scandal. At first I thought it was hot air, but I completely sympathised when I realised that people of my parents generation who had grown up here and lived full lives were actually deported. Amd yet those who have just arrived are in hotels. That's another story, we know all about that in a way. So, I only scratched the surface but here is an article; https://www.jcwi.org.uk/windrush-scandal-explained "Because many of the Windrush generation arrived as children on their parents’ passports, and the Home Office destroyed thousands of landing cards and other records, many lacked the documentation to prove their right to remain in the UK'.
  5. I hate all that stalling, and they have nothing interesting or thought provoking to say. I often think of the quotes from Babe "Fly decided to speak very slowly, for it was a cold fact of nature that sheep were stupid, and there was nothing that could convince her otherwise." "The sheep decided to speak very slowly, for it was a cold fact of nature that wolves were ignorant, and there was nothing that could convince them otherwise"
  6. Today I heard a couple of people on the radio say that Sunak sounds like Blair. I notuce that every time I hear him. And because of that I find his voice quite sickening. He speaks very slowly, but today during his press conference he speeded up a bit, trying to sound a bit more normal.
  7. I heard Laura Dodsworth on Talkradio. She said bills are going through while we're looking the other way. Also that parliament, especially the opposition are calling for restrictions and mask mandates. And that Tom Tugenghat is the only one who voted against vaccine passports. This is the third summer that I've thought we have to find a way to get ready for the winter / autumn bombardment, and I'm still no closer to realising what to do to make a difference in the lull before the bloody storm.
  8. A caller to Talkradio asked if he would have his Sir taken away for giving the Queen a false name. I also heard an immigration lawyer say there will be no repercussions as it happened a long time ago when he was a child. A name is just a label given to you. It was given to him by an adult. Names are changed all the time. This has nothing to do with his status, he would say that applies to anyone else. No trouble at all. Also saw a video of his Mother this morning, sending him a happy message.
  9. Very clever headline Mikhail Liebestein, and I love to think of Cockney rhyming slang anytime, it always cheers me up and God knows we could do with that I'm interested in this story, and naturally wondering about the timing of it. It's intriguing to guess and then hear the media reaction, particularly while assuming that there will be no outrage, whether there should be or not is perhaps debatable. In my opinion small scandals are inflated, and big scandals are swept aside now anyway.
  10. Try to find a soft drink that doesn't contain sweeteners. They are slipped into everything. I can taste it, the bitterness, and then you check the ingredients and there is. The people lap it up. Spraying tables and near food, anti bacterial sprays, breathing it in like its fresh air. Rubbing chemicals on their skin. Licking their fingers. Pumping out time relased air fresheners. I can't stand the OCD behaviour. Transporting fresh food half way round the world, completely contrary to concerns about the planet, and spraying preservatives to keep it looking fresh. Waxy chemicals on the apples, that you can't wash off. Try scraping it with a knife. Sometimes you can see it. If people were really concerned about the planet, health and wellbeing, they would support their local farmers, suppliers, and independent businesses, bringing security to their local towns and villages. Their country. One of the worst things about covid hysteria is filling peoples brains and thoughts with useless information, leaving even less time to learn what really matters. All of these artificial smells and flavours take us further away from being human. We are meant to smell each other; it's our human instinct and institution. We are meant to see each others faces. We are meant to touch each others hands. I saw an advert on the back of a bus; blue gloved hands holding the hand of an elderly patient. I despair at the nature of the beast, and the willingness of the people.
  11. Thanks Macnamara, Excellent thread with so much information
  12. https://www.nme.com/news/music/crosby-stills-nashs-music-returns-to-spotify-3261128 Crosby, Stills & Nash’s music returns to Spotify Of the news, David Crosby said: “I don’t own it now and the people who do are in business to make money" 4th July 2022 Posting this here, as it was discussed on this thread. I heard this earlier on GB News, where the headline said; Aging rockers quietly crawl back to Spotify after short-lived Joe roman protest. My gut feeling now, and back then, is that this is one big advert for Spotify, rather than a protest against Rogan. But then I enjoy being cynical
  13. I'm reading the Brain That Changes Itself https://www.normandoidge.com/?page_id=1259 I'm glad you asked. I'm extremely interested in this area, and having searched for a link for you I came to Norman Doidge's website which I haven't seen before. It looks good, with helpful information, and an extensive FAQ section. This is a snippet from the home page; Norman Doidge, MD, a psychiatrist and researcher, set out to investigate neuroplasticity and met both the brilliant scientists championing it and the people whose lives they’ve transformed. The result is this book, a riveting collection of case histories detailing the astonishing progress of people whose conditions had long been dismissed as hopeless. I must add that it's been very encouraging to read of others experiences in the book. I've got a lot to learn, always, but I believe that anything is possible. Certainly the belief in something makes it stronger. Life experiences can make this very difficult. Granted. When it's hardest to believe is when you need to believe the most. Damn it !
  14. At the time I just had this dreadful feeling that it was their way of saying they were going to save the world for themselves, without us pesky pests in it right in front of our faces, as usual. All of those lovely green spaces preserved just for them. I wondered how long 4 minutes was. It was 2008? So 12 years before 2020. I was aware of agenda 2020 / 2030, and the plans behind the scenes. I didn't think people would go along with it back then. I heard about that but I haven't seen it, I'll have to have a look, thanks sock muppet.
  15. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and just on one point to be brief for now ... and with all due respect to you, I believe the cameras know you even with a mask. But yes, we do stand out in a crowd.
  16. Sorry for sidestepping but I always noticed the number 4 in Madonna's song; 4 minutes to save the world (2008.
  17. I posted this in todays news, but I realise you have a thread already Neil Oliver was discussing farmers protests in the Netherlands at 18:30 today (Saturday) ... Unrest and clashes with the police Farmers are protesting over changes to environmental rules Neil was speaking to Simone Kerseboom, a Dutch politician, who said the politicians are focusing on a so called nitrogen crisis, and not the covid hysteria. She said we've got 8 years to fight agenda 2030, and that we need to make sure food production stays in the hands of the farmers. Interesting choice of words from this lady.
  18. David Icke headlines today Secret society chief Nadhim Zahawi mistakenly tweets Abe’s death before confirmation https://davidicke.com/2022/07/09/secret-society-chief-nadhim-zahawi-mistakenly-tweets-abes-death-before-confirmation “Heart-breaking news from Japan,” Mr Zahawi wrote on Twitter at 06:07 local time. “PM Shinzo Abe has died after being shot by an attacker. We enter politics to serve and try and make the world a better place, a good man has lost his life in pursuit of that noble aim. “May he rest in eternal peace.” Always heartbreaking? Mr Johnson, who will step down in the coming months, said he was “utterly appalled and saddened to hear about the despicable attack on Shinzo Abe. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones”. And their thoughts are always with ...?

  20. Neil Oliver discussing farmers protests in the Netherlands at 18:30 today (Saturday).

  21. A caller on Talkradio. "It's about holding these people accountable. You can hold your MP to account" Mike: 'I blame Tony Blair, he made people disinterested in politics because he made everything so bland. But there you go ..." "So many people are so cheesed off they don't care who's in charge." "Up untill a month ago he was never anywhere near getting removed." Untill Chris Pincher" Kevin O'Sullivan " He didn't get it right with all the lockdowns ... it was crazy" (Kevin has been against restrictions for as long as I can remember)
  22. Jenny, a caller on Talkradio. "Boris was in intensive care, I mean he could have died. Weve been through so much ... and the war in Ukraine. It's going to be expensive, and they could spend our money more wisely." Mike: "Jenny who is dismayed, not angry" I thought evidence had come to light that Boris' covid and near death experience had been completely disproven? I'll have to search later.
  23. Thursday night on GB News 'papers' review. The headline ... American monument, some see as satanic bombed ... Mystery bombers gave got rid of it. The commentary ... a) It's a granite monument. It's only 42 years old - how can they compare it to stonehenge? b) Yes but everything in America is newer. a) If you set the same bomb off at stonehenge nothing would happen. This thing's made out of MDF?
  24. Yesterday morning one MP stood up in parliament and said that Boris Johnson should make a speech in the house first, not the media, and he felt the speaker would agree. On previous occasions during 'covid', I listened as the speaker scolded Boris (absently) for going straight to the media with those high drama press conferences. Boris went directly to the press so many times, completely bypassing parliamentary process, and any opportunity for debate. I thought this was disgraceful, and yet another sign of an end to any respect to procedures, rules and traditions. The British way? At least as far as Boris was concerned. This has been an important point for me for so long. He got away with destroying a part of our system? Because covid was so important, above all else? It also allowed the resulting media storm to drown out any rational commentary and healthy balance, which would have, perhaps, helped to create some resistance. I'm trying to think what to compare it to for the sake of discussion. Perhaps going straight to the press, before the judge and jury in court?
