  1. "Brexit" Says it all really.! A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The woman below replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You’re between 59 and 60 degrees north latitude and between 107 and 108 degrees west longitude.” “You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist. “I am,” replied the woman, “How did you know?” “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I’ve no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help at all. If anything, you’ve delayed my trip.” The woman below responded, “You must be a politician” “I am,” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know?” “Well,” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you’ve no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault.”
  2. This is what is called being a independent country is it???????? What the hell did we fight two world wars for???????

  4. Did you know that the authorities were last night looking at the legitimacy of signatures on this petition? It has emerged that people from Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and Russia have signed up, it was revealed yesterday that more than 120,000 signatures on the petition had come from outside the UK. Their were also signatures from China, Cuba, North Korea, and Zimbabwe. Most of the international signatures from France, Germany and the United States , were from expats. There is no limit to the number of times anyone can sign up online, there is no limit to the international integrity of it -people are signing up from all over the world. This makes an absolute nonsense, of this Remainer exercise to ditch a democratic vote.
  5. Is that the same Alister Campbell who with his mate Tony Blair took the country into an illegal with Iraq that cost so many live and resulted in the formation of ISS? You really think we should take notice of anything he says!
  6. Thought this may be of interest. This is a piece written by Frederick Forsyth! Some people have very strange hobbies and a mate of mine has steeped himself so long and so intently in a life long study of the British constitution that he leaves professors of government scratching their heads before admitting he is right after all. It is fashionable to say we Brits have no constitution but that is rubbish. Also rubbish to claim we have no written constitution. It is part-written, part unspoken custom. But there is nothing unwritten about the English Bill of Rights of 1689. What IS true is that, unlike all others, ours was not written in one place at one time by one group of scholars and stored in one place. But it is still there. he says My mate claims that with all their powers there are two things our parliament cannot do. It cannot legally disempower itself and it cannot require our monarch to break her Coronation Oath. “this is the most interesting part” He then goes on to affirm that the passing and ratification of the Treaty of Lisbon did both that and is therefore invalid. He says this is being taken extremely seriously in very high places. Now supposing he is right? It would make Brexit not a Brexit but a breakfast-a dog’s breakfast. It would mean our politicos passed all those sovereign powers from London to Brussels illegally. In which case there is nothing to discuss. We walk without any more need-bending and trade with the rest of the world on the best terms we can get. “Whoopee”
  7.

  8. So what! I put this on to show how pathetic society has become, I would say this is more relevant today than it has ever been with PC gone crazy. All these kids going to university for useless degrees, such as Media Studies and as for phycology there must be that many phycologists in the country that there must be enough for one for each of us. Going back to the original thread, there is one degree not available and that’s one on common-sense, and without common-sense none of the rest are relevant.
  9. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, -by his parents, Truth and Trust, -by his wife, Discretion, -by his daughter, Responsibility, -and by his son, Reason. He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers; - I Know My Rights - I Want It Now - Someone Else Is To Blame - I'm A Victim - Pay me for Doing Nothing Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
  10. Says it all really, officials wanted to integrate women into a combat unit (RAF Regiment) (the word integrate = political correctness= diversity) what a way to run the military, it is not as I have pointed out in my other posts, to make the service more efficient (what a waste of money and time). She quit after two weeks when she admitted she underestimated the physical requirements need in the 18 week course, still I expect the top brass will get around that by making the course easier so that they can pass. She also says she felt left out because she had to use female only accommodation, so what is she saying she should have been allowed to bunk down with the boys? If that had been allowed that, how long would it have been sexual harassment or some thing equivalent. I would not have wished to share a billet with her, not in today’s PC country/world. I can just imagine one of the lads going for a shower with a towel around has waist, the next thing you know he would be had for indecent exposer, what a joke, no wonder the military is thousand short of recruits. https://en.mogaznews.com/World-News/915265/First-woman-to-join-infantry-regiment-quits-after-two-weeks.html
  11. A look into the future CALLER: Is this Gordon's Pizza? GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza. CALLER: I must have dialled a wrong number. Sorry. GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Gordon’s Pizza last month. CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza. GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir? CALLER: My usual? You know me? GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust. CALLER: OK! That’s what I want … GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust? CALLER: What? I detest vegetable!. GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir. CALLER: How the hell do you know! GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years. CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol. GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago. CALLER: I bought more from another drugstore. GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your credit card statement. CALLER: I paid in cash. GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement. CALLER: I have other sources of cash. GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law. CALLER: WHAT THE HELL!!! GOOGLE: I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you. CALLER: Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I'm going to an island without internet, cable TV, where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me. GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago…
  12. The Sign Of A Mathematical Genius A farmer died leaving his 17 horses to his 3 sons. When his sons opened up the Will it read:..... My eldest son should get 1/2 (half) of total horses; My middle son should be given 1/3rd (one-third) of the total horses. My youngest son should be given 1/9th (one-ninth) of the total Horses. As it's impossible to divide 17 into half or 17 by 3 or 17 by 9, the Three sons started to fight with each other. So, they decided to go To a farmer friend who they considered quite smart, to see if he could Work it out for them. The farmer friend read the Will patiently, and after giving due Thought he brought one of his own horses over and added it to the 17. That increased the total to 18 horses. Now, he divided the horses according to their father's will: Half of 18 = 9 So he gave the eldest son 9 horses. 1/3 rd. Of 18 = 6. So he gave the middle son 6 horses. 1/9 th of 18 = 2. So he gave the youngest son 2 horses Now add up how many horses they have: Eldest son got - 9 Middle son got - 6 Youngest son got - 2 TOTAL = 17 Now this leaves one horse left over, so the farmer friend takes his horse Back to his farm... Problem solved!....................... ..........................Go Figure.
  13. No was not convicted of murder, he was to chicken to do it himself, he got others to do it for him, which in my book still makes him a nasty evil murderer.
  14. Abu Hamza wants to come to the UK to be imprisoned and why wouldn't he, being imprisoned in the UK today is like living in a holiday camp, they don't have to work if they don't want to, 4 meals a day with a choice of menu, television in their cells game consuls, recreation etc; etc; (punishment my eye). If they get ill it is immediately treatment unlike us who have to make an appointment with the doctor, and how much does this cost you and me. (I bet some lonely OAP would love that sort of treatment. This is what you the tax payer is contributing to their life of luxury. Statistics on just 1 prison. It costs £40,000+ per year to keep 1 prisoner in Strangways. The operational capacity of Strangways as of 1st April 2013 is 1,238. I will leave you to work out how much that is costing the you/country. No wonder the iis butchers known as the Beatles want to come over hear to serve their sentence, (leave them in the Kurd prison)as far as I am concerned if they wish to be martyrs they can dig out, but no they don’t they are just cowards who get brain washed high on drugs youngsters to do it, other wise if he was so sure about paradise Hamza would have put himself forward for so called martyrdom.
  15. So what would you suggest hightail?? The Rigby murder was premeditated and in front of witnesses. As pointed out by Surfer01, the people who committed this murder could not have cared less and would do the same again if given the chance, so how should they be punished?
