  1. Some would disagree https://metro.co.uk/2021/11/17/tory-who-backed-universal-credit-cut-says-second-jobs-support-mps-lifestyles-15617857/
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/may/09/mississippi-governor-contraception-abortion-rights Abortion is only the start.
  3. Is it weird that 4 of my all-time top five are Mafia movies, Godfather 1 & 2, Goodfellas and Casino?
  4. Just watched Goodfellas for the umpteenth time.
  5. But you're obviously OK with parts of Christianity wanting to force their views onto everyone else. Also, from the Merriam-Webster definition unborn adjective Definition of unborn 1 : not born : not brought into life 2 : still to appear : future
  6. So, there it is, Johnson thinks it's all the fault of the poor and vulnerable people.
  7. The root cause of our housing problem is the scandalous Right to Buy policy of previous conservative govts, and their complete hatred of council owned housing stock. That's what caused the Buy to Let problem, people buying cheap council houses then selling them on for a quick profit.
  8. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/apr/24/matt-hancocks-stay-at-mansion-of-randox-founder-revealed-by-foi-request So that's OK then, as long as you accept gifts in a private or personal capacity, it's not considered to be something that can influence you!!
  9. Watched it as well tonight. I didn't realise how many ad breaks there are on prime time ITV now, seemed to always be going to a break.
  10. Not sure if I really agree with this or not. But thinking about it, it's possibly the best way forward for any Russian players. If they had to denounce the invasion as a condition of playing, it probably wouldn't go down well back home, and could put them and their families in a very tricky position with the Russian Govt.
  11. I quite enjoyed the first couple of episodes, but can't say I have the same feeling about the 3rd and 4th ones. Maybe it will be like Loki, which I enjoyed more on a second watch.
  12. A quick look at people who are currently in the UK Cabinet; Sajid Javid, Pakistani parents who migrated to UK in 1960s Rishi Sunak, Indian parents who migrated to UK in 1960s Priti Patel, Indian/Ugandan parents migrated to UK in 1960s. Father was a UKIP candidate in 2013 Na***** Zahwai, Iraqi born, family fled to UK from Iraq in 1976 Kwasi Kwarteng, Ghanaian parents who migrated to UK in 1960s Alok Sharma, born in India, moved to UK when he was 5 Suella Braverman, Indian parents who migrated to UK in 1960s It's weird how all these first generation descendants of people who migrated to the UK are so opposed to people coming to the UK now. ps, not sure why Zahwai is being blocked like that
  13. I was just thinking that, we still hoover up the valuable resources like doctors and nurses from African countries (because we don't want to pay for their training here), and now we are trying to dump the 'rubbish' we don't want back onto them in return. The Tories are trying to relive the glory years of the empire.
  14. I take it he'll not be calling for Sturgeon to go anytime in the near future then, after all a country shouldn't be changing leader in such times.
  15. It's ironic that he seems to be be complaining about the laws only applying to some people, and not others.
  16. Maybe it's because I'm getting old and don't remember too well, but in over 40 years of following politics, I can't remember a government as morally bankrupt as this one. Not just morally bankrupt, but blatantly morally bankrupt and revelling in rubbing people's noses in it about it all.
  17. I am of the age that will always know her as Miss Reporting Scotland
  18. A quote from the Telegraph You get the feeling he really doesn't understand what all the fuss is about.
  19. I've always said I'm underheight, not overweight!!
  20. I agree now with the time, the thing that took the time for me at first was actually deciding what to have, then getting the stuff. At first it was also a bit more expensive as I needed to get the various spices and herbs, but once you have them in the cupboard it's a lot easier, and also cheaper than buying ready made. Vegetarian curries are just as tasty as meat ones, but I do tend to agree about non curry and stir fry stuff. A lamb or pork chop is much better than a cauliflower steak.
