    Yes, you are not the first person to notice the similarity to 1618-48 either. Profound religios & political conflict, with money & troops pouring in from noth sides. Which means it's going to get a whole lot nastier. What ufortunate...
  • Commented on A brief, bitter quiz
    Apart from the err (we hope) temporary blip caused by Malaki's stupidity ...... We are not addressing another underlying cause of this present trouble, & one which, saving a many-hundred year campaign of education towards atheism, there is no potential...

  • Commented on Touching base
    You & Charlie have it, yes, Sayyid Qutb was totally off his murderous rocker, but .. um, err ... It is an ideological ( & moral? )struggle, as well as a military one. So, even apart from the short-term question:...

    If I ask Nige/Hairyears nicely, do you/he think that might work for "ello" ??...
  • Commented on Touching base
    SO, the previous US (mis)-guvmints are the current stand-ins for the Imperioal GErman guvmint who sent Vladimir Ilich onwards in his "sealed train"? NOT a good precedent to be following, then....
  • Commented on The morning after
    The Livery Companies of The City do a huge amount of charitable & information work, even if their original purpose has passed. Some have re-invented themseleves in modern terms too, dealing with trade matters. Such as the "Drapers" f'rinstance....
  • Commented on The morning after
    We'e tried "verzuiling" - in N Ireland. YOU HAD to be a prod (or occasionally a catholic) to get certain jobs. ( A smaller-scale version operated in Glasgow, for a time, too. ) No, le's not repeat that one, shall...
  • Commented on Touching base

    ... but is there also a lot of willful ignorance? Oh my, yes, of course there is! How do you think the SNP got away with their lies about London taking all their money for years? Or the tories...
  • Commented on The morning after
    The UK is just too damn big and cumbersome for direct representative government And the USA? Even allowing for "State" guvmints ... according to you it can't possibly work. Oh, wait a minute .... "Houston, we have a problem here"...
  • Commented on The morning after
    Might look good from a distance, but, although people do commute to London From Clacton (& Colchester & Ipswich) it is almost exatly 70 miles to Harwich from Liverpool St - the same distance as Folkestone .... So, a division...
  • Commented on The morning after
    Let's see ... Adolf had sneaked Sudetenland away, invaded Czechoslovakia, supervised Kristallnacht, occupied Austria & then invaded Poland. And we were NOT the virtuous side? By what criterion? NOTE: Horrible things done during the war, as purely military actions probably...

    Should Leicester go into Mercia, though? Remember I'm talking about the divisions BEFORE the Danish "Great Army" invaded ..... I thought monkeys were restricted to Hartlepool? [ To furriners - don't even try to work that one out! ]...
  • Commented on The morning after
    All very true, Charlie, but, as always in these matters, incomplete (We can never get a fully-complete account, of course) As always the Thatcher guvmint was infected with both arrogance & incompetence. The last bit is important - as is...

  • Commented on The morning after
    It does seem to me that there are two views on London, one is from the perspective of Londoners looking Out - and who Love their City - and the other is from the perspective of eveyone else who look...
  • Commented on The morning after
    The Falklands War was the death knell of anything even remotely resembling BBC impartiality. REALLY? When the ultra-right (aka theDaily Nazi) were calling for BBC lefties & traitors to be sacked? When a country was attacked without warning by military...
