It's 'mission creep' and is an inevitable part of this forum.

The original poster may start by talking about how to remove stains from his/her underwear, or the price of fish.......by post 19 the talk has turned to 'digging up Maggie Thatcher' or the best electric car available for 40,000.

People can say whatever they want. Some of it I like, some of it I don't......but I'm not here to police what people say.

TB has his views
Rae has his views
Al Gollum has his views
Opti the handsome has his views. :)
And Albs has infinite wisdom

Cant argue with that.  :y
And thankyou for saying so.  :-[

Then we have The Larkins. A remake of Darling Buds of May.
Despite being set in rural Kent in the early 50,s quite a percentage of the characters are black or Asian, which I very much doubt has much connection to the reality in that place at that time.
Conversely, last time I watched Eastenders (admittedly a couple of decades ago) the vast majority of the cast were white, which is certainly not the reality in 21st century East end of London.

I agree that there always have been and always will be, men who attack women, and attack other men for that matter.
It can never be completely stopped unfortunately, as it is imbedded in the worst side of human nature, but the answer can never be for women to be too fearful to live their lives.
We as a society should do everything possible to reduce the problem.
Police put back on the streets instead of the present situation of being a mixture of social workers / diversity enforcers might be a start. As would much harsher punishments, including the death penalty, for serious offenders.

Unusually for me, I have no words.

Nor me - almost :(.

The only conclusion I can draw is that no-one should ever go out alone at night, and if they do, they deserve anything that happens to them. Even being raped and murdered by someone who is obviously a serving Policeman !

My (6 year old ?)Vaillant has developed a habit of not firing up in the mornings if outside tempa are a little chilly. Throws up fault code F28.
"Engineers" have attended four times in the last year and the last one fitted new parts whic would cure the problem.
It did, until a couple of weeks ago, and its now doing the same again.  ::)

At the end of the day, it hasnt gone away. People are still getting ill and dying. So to my mind it makes sense to carry on taking reasonable steps to protect ourselves and others we may come into contact with.
About 8 weeks ago I picked up something which seemed to mimic Covid symptoms. It was very nasty indeed.
A week later it had transferred to swmbo .Being immunosuppressed it hit her even harder and she ended up going to hospital in the back of an Ambulance.
The Doctors were pretty confident she had Covid until the test result came back negative.
We wouldnt want to go through that (or worse) again, for the sake of taking a few precautions.

I'm quite confident, at 45, that peer pressure isn't a factor ;)

Just 45.  That explains a lot! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;)
Wish I was 15.

You and me both.  :D

All it needed was one of them to bother phoning the cops, or pushing the emergency button.
Didnt need any level of bravery, just a modicum of basic human decency.  >:(

The Govt. so far, seem pretty determined not to have one. Of course if they eventually give in and have one then they will get slaughtered for doing it too late.
Although I have little time for this Govt. it really is a very difficult position to be in. Cases and deaths are rising again, but if we go back into lockdown the countries economy will take generations to recover.
Most people I come across seem to be under the impression that the vaccines have solved the problem and everything is back to normal now.
I have doubts that it will be over and done with in my lifetime.

Bollix to all that crap. You simply cant beat a good old coal fire in winter. No chimney in my current house, but if I ever move again that will be a definite requirement.
Coal or logs burning in the front room is a wonderful thing. Couldnt give a toss what little Greta says.  :)

I have seen several people in their coffins (and a few who havent got that far yet) and if they ever come to mind, the first image I have is of the dead body.
For this reason I chose not to see either of my parents after they died.
My older sister though turned my Mums time of lying in the chapel of rest into a bloody circus. Just one of the many reasons I have for hating the bitch.

In Ireland a person is normally buried within three days of death. Most of the old traditions around death have slowly disappeared, but not that one.
My Mum died on a Thursday morning and was buried Saturday morning. Similar story with Dad.

We've had two pay out for two funerals in the last two years  brother in law & the wife's cousin both died before 60 years of age & neither left provisions for the costs which amounted to around  10,000 for both & that wasn't being extravagant admittedly both were in the London area . Nobody else in the family offered any financial help towards this we have just been reimbursed for the second one ( wife's cousin) so provision for a funeral is a good idea I believe.
A couple of grand won't touch the sides then...

It will with my funeral plan.
Have my carcass sent off to be burnt. If anyone wants the ashes for some strange reason, they can go and collect them from the Crem.
Shouldnt cost more than a couple of grand.
Having attended numerous funerals, from my friend when I was 10 years old * to my Dads six years ago, I fail to see the point of them, other than income for undertakers and an excuse for a good piss up.

* In the good old Irish tradition, this included waiting in line to have a look at him in his coffin, which was a tad traumatic for a ten year old kid
