Re: YellowHammer Docs releases

I have no knowledge of Thatcher’s pre-Falklands knowledge, but certainly many bad things happened. The Belgramo was shocking. Over 300 killed needlessly. I remember the headlines in the red-tops in the UK - “DIRTY ARGIE BAS&&&&” being one (but with the full words...! And much more.... Jingoism went ...

Re: Confused dot com

Listening to radio in long drive yesterday’s, it was still amazing that people phoning in, when asked if they had holiday insurance, a very large proportion didn’t..... why do people not do that? They’ll book a holiday costing thousands but fail to pay £50 for insurance....

Re: Migraines

I cannot identify a single thing that causes migraines. Apparently the Cs are prime suspects - Caffeine, Chocolate, Cheese, Citrus.. I know someone who gets them whenever she smells Lavender... I did get them if I look at strong light, but I suspect mine are causes by stress, lack of fluid and tired...

Re: Migraines

I carry my migraine tablets and aspirin in a little box in my pocket. If I get the ‘sparkles’ I take 1 migraine table and 3 aspirins immediately. Sometime works, sometimes not. At one stage I was taking 8 migraines a week and was put on Beta Blockers. Eventually stopped as put on weight and had nigh...

Re: Confused dot com

We are being fed lies every day in the UK, by the media. Deliberate and dangerous lies, manipulating the populace. As Jim has said, the anti-EU agenda has been many years in the making and millions of people have been taken in by tales of EU armies, bendy bananas, lack of Sovereignty and more. It di...

Re: Does David Cameron regret the referendum...

In politics, especially about brexit, we have people with polar opinions. It’s inevitable that arguments will ensue. Wait for October! Unfortunately, it’s easy to gent annoyed and sometimes easy to annoy. Ive insulted a few and a few I’ve apologised to for it in retrospect. There have been some who ...

Nigel Farage walks into a pub and says, "I'll have a pint of beer, please." The barman pours a pint, then throws it all over Farage. 'What did you do that for?' says Farage.

Why not, that's what he's supposed to do. It's called democracy.
Just as Sovereignty that people wanted, is being exercised by parliament and the judiciary. Just as democracy isn’t a once-only vote.
