Re: Political: Time for the little guy ?

My recollection is that 'Shangri La' was a fictitious place in the Himalayas, created by James Hilton in his book 'Lost Horizon'. It was a place where people lived for hundreds of years. The hero...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

So you'd trust Boris Johnson as a person over Jeremy Corbyn? :eek: Read what I wrote above and think about it again!

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I'm talking about Boris 'Pants on Fire' Johnson's character. A serial liar, fired from three jobs for doing so. An adulterer, who tried to get his girlfriend to have his child aborted and tried to...

Talk of the Devil:

I saw in the news today that 40% of homes that were bought under Thatcher's right to buy scheme, are now owned by private landlords and rented out at much higher than council...

Re: Lincolnshire and the Lake District

When I was on Steep Hill (avoid if icy!) about 5 years ago, I was surprised to see a surplus electronics shop still there that I remembered from magazines in the 60s. It's probably worth a browse if...

Re: Lincolnshire and the Lake District

They're both great places to visit, but deserve a day each to do them justice. The view of the cathedral from the castle battlements is a photographic favourite. Lincoln is my favourite cathedral.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Erm - you can't use a camera without a lens - that's what! ;)

It's the total weight of the kit that's important.

I said right wing media, Nigel. You must be way, way to the left of me if you consider the Mirror and Guardian to be right wing! *yes

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I've told you before - don't worry about it!

The right wing media tycoons that mould public opinion (including yours) won't let him win an election- so forget about the prospect.

Re: Escape from the Heatwave

I'm down to my 'T' shirt, shorts and flip-flops at 40F!

Seriously though, you can protect yourself down to -50C with appropriate clothing. There's no appropriate clothing to protect yourself...

Not necessarily anything to do with Brexit, but I see that both Toshiba and Hitachi are giving up on Nuclear power plants in the U.K.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I don't know why the Tories on this forum are so exercised about the prospect of Corbyn getting into power. It's never going to happen - Murdoch, Rothmere and the Barclay brothers won't allow it!

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I guess that you would have loved it even more if instead of the Tories waving their order papers, they'd stood up and thrust out their right arms, saluting their future leader!

Chilling to see Gove strutting and ranting before the vote this evening. The only thing he didn't say was: 'One Country, one People, one Leader!'

Exactly my position from the word go! Let the Brexiteers win and then have to 'get over it'.
