  1. Their joint leader, at one point, was Catmando... A cat. Cats make excellent politicians. They're egocentric, totally selfish and concerned only about what they can get out of any given situation. The only difference is, cats are quite honest about their motivations and intentions, making no attempt whatsoever to hide them. If only we could say the same of humans...

  2. The vast majority if independents are not like Harrow, Eton or Roedean. they are quite small, Iona, Hollygirt etc with pupils in the ten, hundreds. Perhaps you could propose a rebate for the the cost of a place at state school that they forgo? This I don't doubt and the ongoing investigation will, I hope, eventually bring those responsible to book, Did HMG take their eye of the ball? - no. No matter what you legislate for or how draconian you make the laws someone will always looks for ways to circumvent the rules. there will always be corruption and criminal activity rega

  4. I found some more school reports from Berridge today. Also my leaving report from Windley. The latter is helping me clear up the mystery of why I didn't take the 11+. The report was in 1948 and I was 9yrs 9months. Average age of class was 11yrs 1 month. There were 37 in the class and I was placed 19th but was 16 months younger than the rest of the class? My first school reports from Berridge are missing which is strange because my Mother was quite assiduous at saving all my docs and exam results - even swimming certificates The Windley report does clear up one mystery. I had mistaken

  5. They have systematically enabled 'legalised theft', by not only the headline grabbers such as Mone and Harding, but by creating Privatised Cartels from former publicly owned assetts such as water, transport etc., etc. They have also utterly failed to pursue those responsible for huge misappropriation of public money, such as Crapita, Carillion etc..and continue to fail to bring to account those responsible for the Post Office scandal, Grenfell, and many, many other iniquities which originate from the Tory onsession with privatiastion and refusal to 'take on' big business, no matter

  6. I see Severn Trent Water has been fined more than 2 million pounds for illegally discharging 240 million litres of raw sewage into the River Trent from the Strongford waste water treatment works near Stoke on Trent. This following the failure of two out of three screw pumps at the facility. Luckily it was at a time of high flows in the river otherwise it could have been an environmental disaster.

  7. I'm inclined to agree and recent surveys bear it out. The danger as I see it is the populist elements of their manifesto mask the weakness of the leadership in having any idea how to run picnic never mind a country.. Their economic policy is quite frankly laughable, though highly attractive to little Englanders and the "shurrup I'm watchin corro" brigade'. I suspect it would be quite ruinous for public spending, health, education etc. The introduction to the manifesto is full of.. what exactly? Hot air, tub thumping and pipe dreams that will appeal to the hard of thinking, bu

  8. Clearly not however to pretend a dislike of foreigners did not play a part in Brexit is naïve. In many ways being an island race and somewhat insular we have always had a suspicion of foreigners, those of my generation grew up with it. It's an attitude formed when the map was pink and will linger for some time yet. Xenophobia is not new or exclusive to any particular section of society yet it seems the Reform party with its policy of one in, one out plays to that and seems to be gathering support.
