  1. Amending contracts (hours/money etc) - may have actually seen sense and binned the stirke. As you say it's no way to get public support. It's like the tubes - when they strike now everyone just gets on with it and make other arrangements - they'd be better off turning up for work and letting people travel for free. As is they just piss everyone off.
  2. Having lived in London for years I'm used to tube strikes etc however the London Fire Brigade has chosen to strike over the bonfire weekend. Where do you stand on this? From my own point of view the fire lads do a good job under hard conditions (certainly compared to what I do) however they are paid well for this ( not to mention the side jobs they all have) and I think striking on the busiest therefore most dangerous day of the year is a disgrace. Like I say I have all the respect in the world for them however they have gone too far with this.
  3. Slightly more current..... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-11061296 Still "it's all a laugh" eh kev?
  4. Is it a trilby? In which case I offer humble apologies.
  5. Split it with ya?..... Go on
  6. Quite possibly. Half arsed dig at the self perceived infallibility some of the lefties have on here.
  7. You've done a good job of standing off and interjecting little one-liners like this from time to time. Makes you sound oh-so-world-weary. Also makes you sound like you know what you're talking about, when I doubt you do. So what might these 'facts' be? Where is the 'conspiracy theory'? Who's being 'naive'? Join in the discussion if you have something to say. I see your post Leazes and I'll respond later. My point is that you all have theories/ideas based on your own agendas/something you've read rather than experienced or fact hence judgement on a book none of you have read but rath

  9. You really don't see the difference? I notice you omitted the call to all members of the faith to murder people. I've read the thread chaps and I clearly can't up with the intellectual heavyweights (students) on here. ..........

  11. The naivety in this thread staggers me. Never let facts get in the way of a good conspiracy theory.
  12. Shouldn't have been surprised by what the result was. i.e. he (and you by all accounts) fully expect large swathes of the Muslim world to issue death sentences, burn books (now that is shocking) etc etc, when they feel aggrieved. Back to the topic. The people of New York have every right to protest (whether they are misguided or not) over something which is still very raw in their minds. SIMPLE. They weren't hurting anyone.
  13. Why? It seems the centre for debate and I wondered if any of you had read the subject of the argument, or at least since the argument transferred from the Mosque near ground zero debate.
  14. Have ANY of you actually read The Satanic Verses?
  15. This thread is painful.......... Some of you may benefit from taking your noses out of the books for a short while and doing some first hand research rather than continually linking sites which support your arguments.
  16. Champix is the way forward lads - no cravings whatsoever. I also read Allen Carr's book which made me see exactly what smoking is - well worth a read.
  17. Find that hard to believe. Science think they have an answer for every single thing. There has to be more than science in the universe. Not saying I buy it either it's just an interesting alternative explanation.
  18. I remember seeing some documentary a while back in which some scientist offered the explanation that it's often to do with the magnetic field that surrounds us, and that in some areas and buildings this field is particularly strong and can act as a sort of camera, and what people see is the images that the field has taken being replayed by enhanced magnetic activity at certain times. I have seen something which I can't explain but I'm sure there is a logical explanation and I don't believe in ghosts personally. I tell you what though my Grandfatha could spin a yarn about what he'd seen dow
  19. For those of you who smoke and want to quit I cannot recommend this highly enough. Been off the tabs for a week now and the thought of having one makes me feel sick. Passed a big test on Thursday as I was out on the beer and apart from a slight twinge at the start of the evening it was crave free. I've also not had any side effects as of yet.
  20. All joking aside, I can't see the point in driving in London if you can possibly avoid it, doesn't excuse £60 for 6 inches though. Try my best to avoid it as it's a complete ball ache.
  21. I may just become an outlaw..... who roams the county not paying minor traffic fines.
