  1. So how long do we have to wait before Kamala gets the shoo-in? Weeks? Months? I mean, that's what it's all about really, isn't it?
  2. lol! OK, so I'll keep my copy, because it may be worth a few bob in years to come!
  3. Lolita was banned briefly - but eventually released in 1959 and is now freely available. Spycatcher was allowed to be published in 1988. To be fair, The Rights of Man was a long time before that, when life was rather different. Do you believe that an English translation of 'The Truth of the Lie' will ever be available in the UK?
  4. I have read the book by Goncalo Amaral and his reasoning makes perfect sense. He was then vilified by the press, no doubt aided by the McCanns, who then sought to have his book banned from the UK. I have never heard of a book being banned in the UK before. Even 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' was allowed to be printed after a court case. Is there a precedent for this?
  5. Many years ago, (the 1960s) during a seaman's strike in the UK, a flask of what was described as Coca-Cola syrup was brought to the airport. It was in a large (iirc about 20 gallon (+/- 100l) flask made out of thick glass. A fork lift truck was used to load it into the cargo hold, but unfortunately, during the process, the flask fell off and broke, leaving a thick syrupy mess on the apron. The Fire Service were called to wash it away, but someone had the presence of mind to ring Coca-Cola for advice. Their advice was to make sure no-one touched it, and that foam, rather than water should be us
  6. No, but Charlie Hebdo is, as was clear from the response to their earlier publications. The decision to destroy the monarchy was taken and supported by a large percentage of the population. I have no idea what or who the 77th Brigade is and I cannot be bothered to look it up. What I do know, is that when it comes to perfidy, the French are masters at it, as I know from personal experience.
  7. For you maybe, but not for me. You are following the constant MSM narrative of there being a WWIII on the horizon. The rest of the world will taunt the US because they see Biden as a weak President. Do you really believe that China, N Korea or Iran will begin a war which could result in nuclear destruction? I suggest you read up on the Cuban missile crisis - now that was a crisis. Long before the days of instant social media reactions, but the world held its breath for a few days.
  8. Just what you'd expect from the French. Now remind me, what did they do with their royals, and how much good has having a President done them? Rumour has it that they've already surrendered after hearing the 21-gun salute across the Channel yesterday.
  9. When some of the people who infest this forum learn to correctly spell even the simplest of sentences in their national language, then I might pay some attention to their utterances. In the meantime, I shall rely on other sources for their opinions on the death of Prince Philip.
  10. Can someone please explain to me what a plumber in Pimlico has got to do with a ship trapped in the Suez Canal? Am I missing something?
  11. This is what I watch when I see military activity in the area, but not all of the aircraft are using their transponders. The Apache I saw earlier in the week did not show up on any system.
