The Six Chairs

Oct 11, 2015 - 1:10 PM - by Bruv
Bruv's Avatar
OK I am going down market now......a bit of light relief.
I made an unambiguous thread title so Spot doesn't wander in here unsuspectingly.
This is for those amongst us that watch the X me....have it on to keep the peace.

How cruel are those six seats?
I thought that sort of cruelty was finished in the coliseums of Rome, if we were doing it to children or a minority it would be illegal.

Geoffrey Howe, RIP

I note the death of an honourable parliamentarian who spent a quarter of a century on the front bench, though nothing in his life there became him like the leaving it. I offer, for a quarter-hour reflection and as a memorial, one of the most polished stilettos ever wielded in the House of Commons - Geoffrey Howe's resignation statement of 13th November 1990.

ForumGarden offers its congratulations to The Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the occasion of the seventieth anniversary of liberation from the previous thirty five year Japanese occupation.

The government has maintained a progressively non-aligned stance in the face of uninterrupted aggression by the Capitalist West and the continued occupation of the southern half of its country by foreign forces.

To have retained its independence throughout that period has... [Read More]

I placed an online order 18 days ago, confirmed a minute later, immediately paid by my bank. Since then, not a word. I finally used their Live Chat to see when I might expect delivery. They'd not even placed an order with the manufacturer. I have no idea how long they'd have sat on this if I hadn't got in touch.

Cameron's speech.....Ar%*h&le

Bruv's Avatar
David Cameron has vowed to devote much of his time in office to "an all-out assault on poverty", in his speech to the Conservative Party conference.
The prime minister, who will stand down before the next election, said he wanted to tackle "deep social problems" and boost social mobility.

The Eton and Oxford educated Prime Minister who has just cut benefits to the poorest while cutting tax to the richest.

I watched a few minutes of the BBC 24-hour news channel yesterday. The item consisted mainly of a chap engaged in damage limitation, he being responsible for the behavior of US forces in Afghanistan and a genuine really-truly hospital having been blitzed by one of his warthogs. As best I could make out he's His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Alhaji Dr. John Campbell Dada, VC, DSO, MC, CBE, Purple Heart, Eagle Scout and Bar.

I am utterly disgusted in what has been said by the Taxpayers' Alliance at a fringe meeting at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester. What sort of unfeeling, wicked, selfish people are there attached to the Conservative Party ? Is this what is going to happen to the pensioners who have worked all their lives and paid in to National Insurance and Income Tax of this country? Is this what retiring people have got to look forward to ? WHAT A CON !!!! It is pure wickedness to... [Read More]

I have until now avoided making any comment about the chap who apparently lost consciousness at the wheel in Central Glasgow a while back. I made no comment even when it became evident that he had lied about his health after a prior event in order to retain his driving licence, and again lied about his health and his employment record to get his subsequently lethal driving job.

He is now being prosecuted for continuing to drive despite having no licence or any valid insurance, just... [Read More]

As with some previous speeches to the General Assembly I think it appropriate that the full speech should be more easily found and digested.
Your Excellency Mr. President, Your Excellency Mr. Secretary-General, Distinguished Heads of State and Government, Ladies and Gentlemen,

The seventieth anniversary of the United Nations is а good occasion to both take stock of history and talk about our common future.

Unfortunately this world needs international groups like Greenpeace, and I feel privileged to be a part of this brave and committed group. OK it's only a tiny part, but I'm too old to do anything like climb buildings and tie... [Read More]
