Israel is a lunatic asylum in Palestine

Why are the Israeli's always seeking more territory gains in Palestine? Often the occupants of the new (illegal) settlements are Jews shipped in from New York. Not local Jews who have lived in the region for many years. The U.S. has always favoured the (relatively new) state of Israel which operates...

Re: Philanthropy

Perhaps we need a Charles Dickens type of character of the day to highlight the ills of modern society?
From poverty and child sex exploitation to politics, greed and human foibles.

Re: Philanthropy

Understandably, Robert Noonan used a pseudonym to protect his identity and he set his story in ‘Mugsborough’, 'a small town in the south of England', though its coordinates of 'about 200 miles from London' and 100 miles from the coast would put it near Milford Haven in South Wales! However, why was ...

Re: Hastings ice rink

Long since gone, my dear! Originally opened in 1874, when the promenade was only 10 feet wide, the roof of the underground public baths complex formed part of the parade extension. There were two baths, and the one furthest from the pier was originally intended as an aquarium, (like Brighton?) but o...

Re: Corbyn NEVER lets you down

The whole question of unemployment benefits and the best or worst system used to support claimants is far too nebulous to consider on those basic solutions alone, right or wrong. It is surely not in the interest of any government to see the unemployed statistics remaining high and it would arguably ...

Re: Labour - a rethink

The Victorians produced some eminent (Capitalist) philanthropists who cared deeply about the inequalities of the time. The labour force and the Capitalists are not a new phenomenon at all. The United Kingdom was fortunate to have a succession of remarkable philanthropists, thinkers and reformers dur...

Re: Tories damage your health

To be fair, we have had the forum dominated by several topics with discussions complaining about Labour and so criticism of the Tories is a valid topic.
Additionally there has been some pretty heated stuff from both sides, so I agree. let's try to remain sensible and refrain from knee-jerk reactions.

web page links loading multiple pages

I have noticed recently that clicking on some website links (often pdf) causes endless pages to load, out of control until I shut down my browser and even then they repeat the process so that I have to shut down two or three times. I have used my virus scanner but can find no fault. It may be a bug ...
