Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

So do you believe that living your entire life through a small, hand held device and never speaking to another human being is 'progress'?

Or for that matter allowing huge American outfits to...

Re: Photography in Public Places

The use of motor vehicles is indeed very heavily regulated, but that doesn't stop law abiding drivers from being seen as public enemy number one for doing something that is still perfectly legal, and...

Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

The economics of running small, local businesses are such that the majority will fail if they haven't already done so. Most local pubs are small cogs in massive multi-national business, and the bean...

Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

Yes; I think farming is a particularly stressful vocation for many, especially those running smaller cattle farms, although the ubiquitous oil seed rape seems to fund no end of large houses, Range...

Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

We hear a lot about mental health issues these days. Deprivation aside, I wonder how this is affected by where people live. Do people living in towns and cities suffer more than those who live in the...

Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

I would say that politicians of any colour could do a lot worse than going for a long walk with the dog across the moors and the mountains, well away from mobile phone coverage, where they can think...

Re: Photography in Public Places

Re: Photography in Public Places

So then please answer my first question?

Are you suggesting that the sale of cameras and motor vehicles should be banned outright to protect 'vulnerable' individuals? That would certainly avoid...

Re: Photography in Public Places

So where exactly would you say it is safe and socially acceptable to use a camera? :confused:

Re: In praise of...............
