  1. BREXIT positives and negatives

    Are they allowing bicycles?  I remember people buying totally clapped out bikes at ports to get round a ban on foot passengers.  DFDS take bikes on their Dover Calais route.
  2. Four candles, it must be advent!

    Can I light all four?  16 today after airing.  Put the heating on but it is not behaving itself.  And wearing a nice coat.
  3. BREXIT positives and negatives

    Oh, please.  So typical.  Why does everyone always forget the rich people?  Just get your Harley Street guy to put stuff in discreet packaging.
  4. Things to ponder

    I guess it is an idea, but I think not a very good one.   Allotment is one thin though I would just have pulled them up myself.  But to invite them into your house, just no.  Especially not French police searching for a little bit of cannabis.   
  5. BREXIT positives and negatives

    I am not saying it is anything less than a horrible position to find yourself in.  But I would have expected it to happen more to people who had limited access to the news, not internet savvy, and with poor language skills.  Not someone who worked in Cybersecurity, with a Danish fiancee.  Not sure how that cock up happenned.  But horrible.  Hopefully it can be sorted.  And hopefully the Danish have a kinder family reuinion set up than the UK one, which is really nasty.
  6. BREXIT positives and negatives

    The Danish (and the UK) governement had websites telling people what they had to do.  And it was all over the press.  Not a requirement for the gov to write to every EU citizen.  How could the British do this?   They do not have the data.  18,000 British worked out what to do.  A few hundred did not.

    Horrible.  I am really surprised that he did not realise he needed to apply to stay. The info was easy to find.  He said that no one ever contacted him, which I thought was a bit weird.

    Horrible what happenned to these people Seasonal fruit pickers left thousands in debt after being sent home early from UK farms | Immigration and asylum | The Guardian  
  9. I am not big into insulting people, I find it is often counteproductive and there are funnier ways to put someone down.  Or when necessary better to de-esclate an unpleasant situation. But I think the law is more nuanced here than suggested..  So, someone expressing the opinion that what you just said makes you sound like an ignorant cunt.might not be punishible.    "Drecksfotze“, „Schlampe“, „Dreckssau“... keine strafbare Beleidigung? - Rechtsanwalt Rosenheim - Rechtsanwalt Rosenheim - Dr. Herzog Rechtsanwälte (drherzog.de)
  10. Shame we did not meet at the time, John.  I could have popped you in my barrow and wheeled you home.
  11. Not sure.  It was in Kensington and Chelsea.  So at the time it was an unusual sight.   I met Tony Curtis early one morning.  About 7 am near Sloane Square.  He seemed to be almost as surprised by me, as I was my him.  He was on his way to a cobbler, who custom made his boots.  Well, that is what he said he was doing.  Very charming guy, for 7 am.  
  12. Was a while ago.  1979.  Great photo though. Apart from the pay, it i was one of the most fun jobs I have ever had. 
  13. Sorry robbo,  I meant if there were one or two hairs.  But the whole post was a wind up.   And the dog poop thing is ridiculous, bagged or not.. Many people suggest it is better to flick it off into the bushes.  But it is not.  It is shit and needs to be disposed of.  People should just take it home with them. Like most litter, but more so. I used to be a road sweeper. Extensive experience with dog shit and dead pigeons..
