  1. As DJ360 comments, I quote, And the Drones will still keep voting to be screwed. The drones (Punters) have been sleep walking for decades spending their money to watch obscene over paid louts prance about the pitch like excited school girls. As soon as the transfer fees started rising towards a million the end was, and is, nigh. I never was at all interested in the game. It was not too long before I saw the game for what it was and has become.
  2. Despite the outcry of the public and the relatives of the deceased and injured spectators I have never been convinced that the fault rested with the police force attending to control the crowds that day. In my opinion as follows is my perception of the main causal effects of this major incident, 1. First, the stadium venue was far too small for the expected crowds of spectators. Poor planning and no risk assessment carried out. 2. Access was severely limited to allow that vast number of spectators through the turnstiles in a safe and controlled manner. 3. It
  3. Typical of the sycophantic hand-wringing BBC to over-react with saturated reviews of his past life, interesting though it was first time round, but.... ITV also was quick to jump on the band-wagon too. One or two media presenters would have been sufficient but not a coach party.
  4. Where was this taken in Nottingham?
  5. It certainly proved the EU leaders are untrustworthy and duplicitous. The UK government ministers are no better. But there remains the issue that the EU have still not understood we are an unconditional sovereign nation. Doris Boris should have asserted the sovereignty of NI with the UK without borders. If the EU insisted on borders the opportunity was for border controls on the Ireland side.
  6. DJ360, I had identical knee problems which worsened to finally being accepted for surgery over 2 years ago. I managed, after undergoing the usual assault course of NHS injections, consultations, pre-physiotherapy examinations and X-rays, to being finally accepted for knee replacement surgery via a private (NHS financed) hospital. All went well for me though some others I met were not so fortunate and suffered post operative knee problems. Following surgery there's a six week 1 hour course of physiotherapy plus maintaining knee care at home, hygiene, and knee exercises an
  7. I agree, there's a hidden Covid agenda here. The success of the UK's vaccine inoculation programme compared with the EU's abysmal progress and the EU's continuing post Brexit spitefulness campaign.
  8. Brew, I would think that NU was the better career option.
  9. Strange that you misinterpreted the quotation. I was referring to difficulties with a name like that in signing on for any welfare benefits. I too served in the mob, what were you in?
  10. Well that's three (prematurely four) of the flock knocked off the balcony at Buck House. A lot more to go as they're breeding like rabbits in heat. Look at the savings that could be made if there were far fewer hangers on. More cash for the bottomless pit of the NHS.

  12. Although no detailed air accident report has been published regarding the Vulcan wing failure, it was a rumoured somewhere that a leading edge wing panel came off during the fly-pass allowing air flow to ingress into the wing structure causing the external structure to expand, leading to that part of the wing to disintegrate. The secrecy revolving around the incident raises suspicion.
  13. Jill, thanks again. Patsy married Ron Anderson. I know I always found her very attractive and often thought if....
  14. Thank you Jill, you've been very helpful. I don't think Susan was the girl I was thinking of. The girl I thought that could have been her would have been 3-4 years older. I recall Patsy was married and pregnant, and still living at the same house, but I believe the marriage didn't last long. Thanks again, Alpha.
  15. Jill, The two girls lived on the other side of Bobbers Mill Road. I can't, unfortunately, remember their names. I think their dog was a small white terrier type.
