......and perhaps India. :)

Oh yes, India, the Jewel in the Crown and the British Empire was never the same after 1947 :D :D ;)

I'm sure both the US and India would be willing to let us rule over them again. :)

Like hell would we want to now as it would cost too much, as it did in the days of the Empire, especially when those damn natives started to rebel!! :o :o ;D ;)

Did you celebrate Empire day at school Lizzie..... ::) ::) ::) ::) ;) :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Oh yes, we'll certainly when I attended the Royal Navy schools......... ;D ;D ;D ;)

I watched half of the BBC's meet the contestants tonight..................what a load of rubbish!!

In my opinion they were all most unimpressive, and that is all I want to say as any more is just a waste of time! :-X

A great sight, and I just wish I'd been clever enough, and born in an age that allows women to fly fast jets, to do just that. :D ;)

All I could do was watch some wonderful moments during the time we spent in Malta during 1962-64 involving All types of aircraft, of different nations, but still to this day it is the Vulcan bombers that impressed most. Then have the privilege of attending the Fairford Air Show over a number of years watching some very impressive flying by USAF fighter pilots 8) 8)

A few times on holiday in the Lake District though I have witnessed RAF fighter jets making low level runs and that, like in the film clip, is so impressive 8) 8) 8) :y

In short, the selection of Boris, or whoever it is, to be Great Britain's Prime Minister has been done by a very small number of Conservative elite and this cannot be considered a sound democratic process for a long term, let alone even short term, Government.  Those elite  do not speak for me or you, but are acting on their own agendas. That is not democracy, and just makes everything we have seen over the last 3+ years even worse.

A General Election is the only way forward now for the sanity of the Country. :y

I don't remember ANY sort of contest when Gordon Brown became PM?  ???  He was just installed as our new PM and that was that for 3 years!  ::)

I don't think the lefties complained about the lack of democracy then....  :-X

A GE is the last thing we need right now IMO. The Tories will do better to sit tight and let Labour rip themselves apart over BREXIT as the clock ticks down to Halloween!  :y

Indeed, but at least he was the Chancellor of standing (for Labour!)  at the time, so had some credibility. :D

I am just so angry as to how our futures are going to be handled by THAT man when he, from my point of view, has no credibility and has achieved nothing, so why should we just accept what a small bunch of MP's decide is best fore the country when he has made so many guffs! >:( >:(


I am going to lay down now! :P :P :P ;D ;D ;)

At the moment, the Brexit party is ahead in the polls and the Tories are in a solid 3rd place. For a Tory to wish for an election is to wish for either Farage or Corbyn in number 10.
Personally I would be happy to see *Farage in number 10, but would want someone to call in the generals if Corbyn won.

* As would 46% of Tory party members according to a poll this week.  :)

Not surprised as, no doubt like me, they cannot see Boris or any of the others as a credible leader who can actually deliver Brexit.  After all, Boris is saying when he says anything that he will get us out at the end of October. How exactly he is going to achieve that he never says! ::) ::) ::)

World oil prices shooting up.......................

Brent Crude has been trending downwards over the last few weeks and has gone from $70 down to about $60. It briefly spiked when the tankers were attacked but quickly fell back again.  ;)

That is good and let's hope that trend continues forever downwards Sir Tigger 8) 8) :y

I have always believed in “equal but different”, which is where I disagree with many feminists who want total equality – nature hasn’t planned it that way and we should celebrate the differences.
However, it's amazing how many fish need bicycles!  :o

Ron.

That is a brilliant appraisal of how I feel on this subject Ron :-* :-* :y :y

With all that has been going on between the USA and Iran, with tankers bombed (as per the other threads) and World oil prices shooting up.......................

This morning at Sainsbury's, where the price has been up to 131.9 in recent weeks, it was 124.9, down 3p per litre on what it was just a few days ago!

Great, but what is going on now?  ??? ??? :D :D ;)

Of course I filled up the tank to the brim in the gamble that price cannot last ;D ;D

That t-shirt slogan is great! 8) 8) :y

It reminds me of a feeling that my father had back in the day, well I think it was during the 1970's in particular, and I supported it, that Great Britain should become the 51st State of the USA.

At the time I certainly believed we could no better, and as our standing in the World was at it's lowest at the time, and we relied on America to uphold our democracy which it had really done since c.1940.

Now America is in slow decline, although I hope for all our sakes the American financial empire can be kept going by Trump - he IS the man to do it - I want Britain to be great so......................perhaps..................that slogan is spot on!! 8) 8) 8) :y :y ;D ;D

A General Election MUST be offered to the people to give the government, who does eventually lead us, a new element of credibility that the current lot have lost and cannot bring back with Boris ::) ::) ::) ::)

Why? ???

If there is any chance of Corbin winning a GE then they should stick it out until '22, whoever wins this contest.  ::)

Because the Government, even if Boris, or whoever,  leads as PM has a very slim majority in the Commons.  Nothing would have changed so they will still have great difficulty in even pushing out a Green Paper, let alone be able to put intended new policy out in a White Paper, especially as the DUP do not support the Conservatives after the Brexit fiasco. Labour will also do everything now to make hay on the low public opinion of the Conservative Government, who are seen by even Conservatives such as me as being all over the place, with no central direction and one thought about anything, and will block all and everything they can.

Politics has lost all credibility, and no main party is free of that. Parliament has to resurrect that credibility and give the public a chance to have a vote on exactly what each party represents, and what policies they can now adhere to. Brexit is Brexit, the elephant in the room, but the life of Great Britain goes on and, especially when we leave the EU, strong individuals with strong party politics must be seen to be doing the very best for us, the people.  So a General Election should draw a line in the sand, put the recent past behind us, and give us the people our democracy back, well as much as our Representative Democracy will ever let us do!

In short, the selection of Boris, or whoever it is, to be Great Britain's Prime Minister has been done by a very small number of Conservative elite and this cannot be considered a sound democratic process for a long term, let alone even short term, Government.  Those elite  do not speak for me or you, but are acting on their own agendas. That is not democracy, and just makes everything we have seen over the last 3+ years even worse.

I must be some kind of rarity/dinosaur.

I don't pay for any subscription viewing as nothing is that important to me. I have SIM only mobile, and never get anywhere near the very modest data limit. My life is quite simple.

No you are not as there are a lot of us who have better things to do than sit in front of a TV trying to justify spending £50 a month for some subscription service when you can have Freeview Play to satisfy simple viewing needs.

I would add I do know what those 'services' offer as I / we, my past young family, tried out all that in a bid to get 'entertainment', if that is what they call it!! ;D ;D

If Boris is the one selected, not by us the people, or even everyday Conservatives, after all his usual avoidance of giving anyone a clear idea of what he can actually do with Brexit, let alone run the country, because it is feared by his camp that he is going to make the usual gaff, then we are doomed. It is all a farce as they, my party, have acted recently, let alone if they select Buffoon Boris as PM then his Government will be short term.

They showed an clip from this show last night with the presenters driving cars of the type they had in their earlier lives.

The best bit was when got out of his car without trousers on.  Apart from that it is just playing with their toys still, but at least it stops them playing with something else!! :o :o :o ;D ;D

From a woman's point of view I cannot for the life of me see what this programme is about ;D ;D ;D ;)
I 'work*' with a woman who believes that she shouldn't be in the aircraft holds unloading bags because she is 'a woman'

Unfortunately this sums up everything that is wrong with the sexism arguments as you can't have it both ways. Certainly there should be absolutely no reason to not understands how something or do something due to gender.

'Woe is me, a weak and feeble woman' or some such tosh.

Clearly no point watching the programme now either :-X

* I use 'work' loosely as she clearly has no intention of doing any >:(

I agree entirely with everything you say DG :D :y :y
