I couldn't agree more re. Blair, the man has a lot to answer for. He still can't keep his nose out of our politics.

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

Jim We can discuss this until we are blue in the face. One point, if your elder sister stopped benefits, why weren't there riots, which you claim would be the result ? The other being that I do not accept that the days of a free ride have long gone. We disagree, enough said. I'm sure the other poste...

Re: Chlorakas in fear of armed gangs

Sadly very true, we should have done this to start with. Too late now for the UK.

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

Jim Reading between the lines of what you say, it seems that you are suggesting that many people on unemployment benefit, only do so to ensure that they don't have to work, and if required to work, would then start riots which would be followed by general mayhem. A tad extreme I feel, and I don't ag...

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

Jim I was interested to see the extremes or your working hours, and the vast difference in temperatures, I too would be interested to know where this was. Being a Lancastrian myself, I cannot imagine that this was Ormskirk. Some of my working life has been spent behind a desk, that said, quite a few...

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

Jim B If you read my post, I did say 'fit and healthy people'. Your suggestion that the unemployed who have never experienced physical labour, should not be expected to pick vegetables all day, quite frankly I find quite amusing. I would suggest that they might well benefit from the experience. Fres...

Yes it was delightful, thank God I'm not young now.

I was merely pointing out that part of the farmers dilemma was down to them, and their past actions.

Lloyd

I quite agree with your comments. I was merely pointing out that numbers were still rising in Greece, and that they were amongst the first group.

Mr Blobby

I have previously said that I doubted that we would ever know the true numbers of any country.

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

LB The tradition of fruit picking ran in families here. I believe that women of today would still carry on that tradition, as they had been brought up in the belief that that's what you do for extra cash. Their children played together out in the fields, with mum on hand if needed. I appreciate that...

Re: Coronavirus: "Cyprus ready to reopen doors to tourists from June 15" (Updated)

MrBlobby I was due to fly out in June, luckily I hadn't booked flights when the virus struck. Cyprus will re-open for visitors from selected countries based on the figures that they provide. Just hope that they have declared the true figures. That said, today I 'Googled' cases in Greece, and was sur...

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

Jimgw There are still women I know who still feel bitter about their rejection as a workforce, it matters not what era we are talking about. Women of my generation didn't usually go out to work before their children were of school age. The obvious way to earn money in this area was to go fruit picki...

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

Lloyd I live in an area with fruit farms where ever you look. I did say in a previous thread that the farmers who rejected the housewives, who used to pick for them, in favour of cheap foreign labour, would regret it. The pickers didn't live in grotty caravans, they lived in houses, and they were lo...
