He served under the King during the second world war so that should be more than
good enough to get a card off Queenie. But of course, fighting for the British
during WW2 to keep our independence amounts to nothing today. They want to give
all this hard won independence away and pay Brussels money for taking it too...

I know and others know too that neither Germany nor France will ever give the UK
any controlling influence on how Europe is to be run. This is all down to our
close ties with America for they fear that with UK control in Europe so
America will gain influence via the back door through the UK. So why not, lets
face it, America has made a big success in forming and running their United
States and there's absolutely NO CHANCE of Europe replicating this success...
...Europe is living a dream...time she started to wake up else her dream will
eventually turn into a nasty nightmare.

Here's one for you Chris look up a man called Sollog

you are partly right Nostrodamous however if you lived at the time he was you would make shore that not all or even anymore than say 30% of those Quatrans where true or you would have been called a witch or demon and burnt at the stake .

I believe that if you sit a ESP test and score more than 15% then it can't be explained and you are considered to have ESP maths says you should be able to get only about 10%

Having said that Nostrodamous is about 30%

Oh 1 thing I will warn you Sollog was arrested by the FBI because he wrote a couple of books that where pridictions 1 was about Bill Clinton being killed.It went to court in California you can look up the case . It is refaered to as God verus the United States of America he won the case . He is eather God , the Devil , or the false profit by Nostrodamous . You need to read what happened to prove his claims

It had something to do with the Isreal and there leader whom was shot and I can't spell his name but i'll try Ick Suck Rabeian

I am only the messenger I offer no comment on if any of it is real or wot people believe

We've had Labour getting rattled by holding a voting lottery, now......

UKIP are "Clowns" says the biggest Muppet in the Tory Party

Here's a great idea.....

ALL politicians aged 65 & over be retired from both houses

Edit:

More u-turns from the "Billy Liars"

It was stated that the regular army was to be reduced & the reserves boosted to 30,000.....

So, why this then muppets? Top TA Regiment axed

Well Ken, people living the UK want things to change, fed-up with all the old
political ways, want better progress, want the UK to gain it's old vigour again,
want much less government so that the UK can breath again...and most importantly
of all, "Don't want foreigners telling us how to run the place". But as an old
Etonian, Ken, you don't realise all this because unless another Etonian pal of
yours tells you all needs changing then your not going to listen....are you!

Your a Europhile because you love the way that Europe is run. Run by an
elitist bunch who are way beyond the reaches of the ordinary man/woman in the
street...the Etonian way and you love it. Have a good look at the list of well
known Etonians, you'll find one thing strikingly missing from this list...anyone
who has actually earned any wealth for the UK. But in this list a whole bunch of
people who have been in positions to manage the UK wealth though. How can they
manage our wealth if they have no idea or experience on how to earn it in the
first place. Roll-over Ken, your days are numbered along with your pals too,
change is coming, taking longer than many wish to see, but it's coming never the
less. You can knock the UKIP party as much as you want Ken but it makes no
difference whether it's them or via another political party to be borne in the
future....change will come. So if you Etonians want to play a part in this
change then I suggest that you'll need to change along with it.

Sorry Nick, I'm going to have to Pull you up there

So if you Etonians want to play a part in this change

Ken Clarke did not go to Eton.

was educated at Langley Mill Boys' School, Derbyshire, Highbury Primary School, Nottingham, and Nottingham High School (then a direct grant grammar school). He went on to Cambridge University, where he read law at Gonville and Caius College.

You are unfortunately giving the impression that you have a chip on your shoulder about public school education, which I hope isn't true. Clarke has no real power in politics any more, he is "Minister without Portfolio". He is in the Cabinet because he is useful with many years of background knowledge and advice.



Fair point to raise. However, why do you continuously do this? Ignore the points being raised just to focus on a point that really is not relevant to the rest of Nick's post.

Kenneth Clarke MP

There is no doubt & history will show, that Clarke was an effective chancellor & had Labour continued with his plans for several years or more, then Britain would not be in its current postion as they would have maintained a budget surplus.

However, he is now 8 years past his "sell-by Date" & rather than throw out the baby with the bath water, politicians aged 65 & over should be retired from front line politics & put to good use within a special department for them so the knowledge & experience does not go to waste.

Should that ever happen, then a tight oversight should be also applied to prevent them being paid astronomical salaries a la local council chiefs on £400,000+.

If all the main parties did this, then I'm pretty sure that the cock ups made over the last 40 years would not have been as disastrous as they have been.

Good post. I meant the Council leaders......

...some examples in this austere times......

Fatcat council leaders cut more services so as to increase their salaries

Abuse of local taxpayer funds Not bad for only 3 years work!

there are many many more cases like these & its time all of them were held to account & their holdings seized to repay those taxpayers as it amounts to nothing but fraud or insensible waste!

Chris if I felt this way then I would state this as a fact and not leave it
to someone else's imagination to try and forward guess.

As regards Ken Clarke being an old Etonian comes from my assuming he was since
some refer to him as, "An Eton toff"

Because Nicks post seemed to be more of a rant about public schools than anything else. It was a fair response.

I thought it was a rant about the Etonian type attitude as there was no reference
to the public schools unquestionable high standards of education which make them
very worthy institutions.
When "one" tries to read between the lines can be construed by others that "one"
has only a very weak counterargument to tender with.

First off, don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating what follows but I can see it happening unfortunately.....

Major benefits shake up begins

"However, some groups have raised concerns that the system is entirely dependent on a complex computer network which may not be ready or able to cope with millions of claims. They are also concerned that many potential claimants do not have access to the internet.

But he added: "The truth is the scheme is late, over budget, the IT system appears to be falling apart and even DWP [Department of Work and Pensions] ministers admit they haven't got a clue what is going on.""

Duncan-Smythe has lit the torch paper & there's no stopping it!

Between October 2013 & Summer 2014, expect rioting worse than London 2011. Nothing anyone can say, it is going to happen!

Don't say you haven't been warned.

That statement is inflammatory to say the least!


It seems that you forgot to read the 1st line of my post.....

First off, don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating what follows but I can see it happening unfortunately.....


Oh dear, good job then that you weren't about in 1919 when dear old Winnie stated "This isn't the end of the war, its just a 20 year truce" What an inflammatory statement! Shame he was dead right!

Just remember this....

A broken clock is right twice per day.

With the reduced income by those you mentioned, & with no other source of income, it will only lead to more crime.....muggings on the increase, burgarlies etc etc & what has successive governments done? Reduce police manpower & when it happens it won't just happen in London, it'll be nationwide & the police will not be able to cope.....

...so I don't know about you, but I will find this very scary....

Troops on the streets on a regular basis. So rather than castigate me for mentioning it, why don't you mention it to your friends in the House....

Prepared is forewarned

I did not castigate you. You and Nick are two of a kind, you both tend to state your views, then get all huffy because someone has the temerity to challenge them or disagree with what you think. You can disagree with every word that I say if you want to, that is your privilege, my answer will be, fair enough we will agree to disagree then. I shan't feel castigated. Obviously my skin is a bit thicker, probably like me!

Oi Chrissiewissie...your dredging the barrel with that one!...Getting all huffy
because no one agrees with me...I know you old ex-flower-power set from the 60's &
70's, with heads still full of old daisy roots. I bet you use Marijuana scented
aftershave and body lotion and the ring tone on your mobile phone chimes out
"Hare Krishna - Hare Rama". Still wearing sandals, are we? Make sure the straps
aren't done up too tight could be reducing the amount of blood available to
feed the brain. The trouble with you older generation lot is that you just don't
want to listen to us slightly younger ones, still everything we say and do is
wrong to you...it's just not fair. Telling me I get in a huff....suit yourself
Mrs - suit yourself!!

p.s...Have you cut the grass yet.....I mean't the lawn, silly!!!

Is that a fact? Hmmn, let's see......

America was pre-warned several times regarding Japan, they chose to ignore it. Stalin was warned by Britain that Russia was about to be attacked, yet he ignored it, Churchill warned that the end of WWI was but a truce & he was declared a warmonger.

Civy street......

Firemen's strike back in the 70's, the army with their green goddesses were stretched to breaking point, Toxteth, Brixton, Tottenham, Brixton & 2011

Prepared? You're talking through that very large hole in your butt to think that the police & armed forces can cope should it really erupt......

..oh yes, the likes of people like you will be well protected by armed police in your "gated" communities while the rest of the population suffers & as already proved, any deaths occur & those "gated" muppets feign their false sorrow & just add them to the stats.

28 million unemployed throughout Europe at the moment, with Greece wanting to put another 150,000 on that list by 2015 with welfare throughout Europe being cut - police & armed forces being cut also, so just where will the manpower come from to cope with the flare ups that will happen?

Shades of Easter 1916, let me guess the 21st century's version of the Black & Tans?

Yes please, bring it on!
