Had a brief 4 day break down in warsash near Southampton last week , and the amount of roadworks en route was horrendous. Why do they start these projects in the summer when the roads are jam packed with holiday traffic ??

That we spent £37 BILLION on the test and trace app. That failed and could have wiped out homelessness in one go !

Roughly the same os our 'divorce' bill for Brexit which raised such a furore from mainly Tory MPs.

One would hope that that they are equally keen to investigate those responsible and those who benefited from this huge waste of public money on test and trace.

Do you have a link to support that number?

£37 billion is a crazy number that must equate to about £2 billion a month (or £65 million a day) which seems basically impossible to comprehend.

P.S. How do you define "wiped out homelessness in one go"? That's a lot of bullets.

Edit: I guess Adlerhorst's post makes it more comprehensible.

Hedgehog 06-09-2021 06:53 PM

I think I've done this one before, but when you're drinking a large glass of water with ice in it and you get near to the bottom. You tip the glass back and all the ice lets go and along with the remaining water goes all over your face and down the front of your shirt!

Needless to say, I just did this...

Then the scumbag mother marched across the pitch screaming abuse because we were telling her son to behave. Thankfully they lost 1-4. They had obviously been schooled to cheat and their coach was an idiot.
Unfortunately this is pretty much par for the course with teams pushing to get into the highest league, it's awful.

My son is Eurasian. Playing under 8 football the opposition coach screamed at his players to "get the f***ing chinky."

He dropped out of the team. I began to think emigration was not a bad idea after all.

The whole poem, by John Betjeman, is as follows:

Slough

Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough!
It isn’t fit for humans now,
There isn’t grass to graze a cow.
Swarm over, Death!

Come, bombs and blow to smithereens
Those air -conditioned, bright canteens,
Tinned fruit, tinned meat, tinned milk, tinned beans,
Tinned minds, tinned breath.

Mess up the mess they call a town-
A house for ninety-seven down
And once a week a half a crown
For twenty years.

And get that man with double chin
Who’ll always cheat and always win,
Who washes his repulsive skin
In women’s tears:

And smash his desk of polished oak
And smash his hands so used to stroke
And stop his boring dirty joke
And make him yell.

But spare the bald young clerks who add
The profits of the stinking cad;
It’s not their fault that they are mad,
They’ve tasted Hell.

It’s not their fault they do not know
The birdsong from the radio,
It’s not their fault they often go
To Maidenhead

And talk of sport and makes of cars
In various bogus-Tudor bars
And daren’t look up and see the stars
But belch instead.

In labour-saving homes, with care
Their wives frizz out peroxide hair
And dry it in synthetic air
And paint their nails.

Come, friendly bombs and fall on Slough
To get it ready for the plough.
The cabbages are coming now;
The earth exhales.

Bloke called Colin used to bring his horse inside the Hatch Inn* when it was raining back in the 80’s. He’d been banned for drink driving so he just used his horse and cart, ended up getting fined for being drunk in charge of a horse and cart. :D

* anyone who knows this pub in Colman’s Hatch will know just how small the pub is, it was hard to even get to the front of the bar with a bloody horse standing there.

If you're making the assumption that I was driving much faster than the speed limit you are wrong. When any twat bangs their brakes on for no good reason it is very dangerous especially when they were exceeding the speed limit.

If they’re exceeding the speed limit and you’re not, then the gap between you and him was more than safe when he hit his brakes surely? It would have initially been the safe stopping distance for travelling at 70mph, with an ever increasing stopping distance the longer you followed him. :)

As an aside, id suggest banging on your brakes when you suddenly spot a speed camera is seen as a good reason to hit the brakes by half the bloody drivers out there. Down here in God’s waiting room they do it even when they aren’t doing the limit.

Road Closed signs.

Half the time they aren't anywhere close to where the actual road is closed, leaving a last-minute decision of whether you'll find a dead end or can get to your turn off/destination before it's closed. They need a sign that goes with it saying 50m/100m/200m etc... gets right on my tits, especially in the mornings where everyone is doing the same thing.

Recycle your cardboard box to save the planet. Tick.

Then get into your gas guzzling 4x4 and take your precious kids 3/4 mile to school, clogging up the roads because neither of you can be arsed to walk.

Half the time they aren't anywhere close to where the actual road is closed, leaving a last-minute decision of whether you'll find a dead end or can get to your turn off/destination before it's closed. They need a sign that goes with it saying 50m/100m/200m etc... gets right on my tits, especially in the mornings where everyone is doing the same thing.

With you on this.

Does the USA not have import duties ? I allowed for vat. Shipping must be the same from China to Uk as the USA. I think Apple are simply creaming it

We maybe talking apples and oranges here (no pun intended), but I recently ordered a new iPad online from Apple and it came to us direct from China.

There was no obvious additional charges beyond stand taxes and shipping as far as I recall.

Edit: I just found the receipt email... shipping was free.

Apple prices outside the US are always more expensive , in any country. Just like a load of other products.
In my experience the US is the cheapest place on the planet to buy cars for example, or clothes, household electronics, in fact most high street goods. It’s never a good idea to compare retail prices with those in the US. Just gets the blood up.

House two door down from us has just sold and today there was an Aston Martin DB11 parked outside. Apparently it belongs to the Estate Agent handling the sale.

Talk about taking the piss...

A mate once fed half his kebab to a horse in Dublin.

Surely you would want to use a successful agent to act for you in a sale ? Obviously you live in a very smart neighbourhood, so the car is commensurate, but thanks for letting us know. Selhurst Celtic will be along shortly.

That is what the horse owner was shouting after us as we were running down the road.

Something about having to sit behind it's back end the next day..

We just live in a suburbia tract home, nothing too fancy.

Most "realtors" (for strawberry mivi) around here don't drive overly fancy cars, maybe a Mercedes or a Lexus tops.
