Re: Uk snap election

A constant source of frustration is that at least every other shop is full of women's cloths.

Just how many do they need?

I am in the camp that if its comfortable and does not look too shabby, its good for go............

But there again, everyone to their own tastes.

We are veering from the thread title so I will shut up

I am often amazed and amused when the TV shows the long queues of people, sleeping outside a store overnight and in some cases several nights. For what ? Waiting to be the first to purchase the latest IPhone or other such toy. The thrill must only last a matter of hours or minutes before several million other people purchase the same item. I suppose the same could possibly be said about pre-ordering the latest Oly camera before it's available in stores but I am not going to comment

In a strange way I can understand why people living in deprived areas or other less developed countries have no love for our way of life or alternatively aspire to live the same way and will even risk their lives for the chance to come here and sample it. Sadly, many find to their peril that the streets are not paved with gold as they were led to believe.

Nigel is right, we do need a change in direction, one that points towards the goals, ideals and aspirations that really matter in life but I fear the country will never achieve it.

Amen. And peace be with you.

The problem is that our entire culture and economy has become almost totally dependent on this way of life.

Is it any wonder that some other cultures despise us for it when they consider themselves lucky if they have one good meal a day and a roof to sleep under.

Employment in our traditional manufacturing industries has been almost totally replaced by employment in retail, so could we change now even if we wanted to?

And is this what Jeremy Corbyn would like?
