Re: Anniversary

I use Ancestry and IF the info is correct I can trace my ancestors back to a Court Jester in Henry V111 court, but so much seems to be wishful thinking by several contributors. My maternal Packham line goes back to the Cuckfield area and the local history Society there were very helpful. My paternal...

Sir Nigel Farage

How wonderful and deserved an Honour that would be for the man who is the one most responsible for freeing the British People from the tyranny of Brussels and putting Corbyn back in his little red box.

Re: Labour - a rethink

A consequence of Labour supporting Scottish Independence would mean that Parliament would become predominantly English MP's and therefore they would never get back in power. I don't have the exact figures but a parliament without the Scots would be approx 590 MP's. At present 360 of those are Conser...

Re: Universal suffrage

We all know about the Boston Tea Party and 'no taxation without representation', well that works both ways. Perhaps the vote should go only to those who pay tax (or have done so if they are retired), that way people will think long and hard before voting for more and more taxation. They will certain...

Re: Johnson's lies

I don't know if all that Corbyn says are lies but I do know who his friends are.

Re: Hastings and East Sussex Sunday Football League

I was a member of that 18 plus team that day and remember it well. I believe it was the first game of the season. In the return game, about the 3rd from last of the season, you only won 3-1and it was 1-1until very near the end. After losing to you we then lost 10-0,then 7-1but from then on had a goo...

Re: Brexit and the current position

I was absolutely horrified all those years ago when Hastings voted for a Labour MP. Was it Michael Foster? The decline of Hastings started then. Equally Brighton is a blot on the political landscape of Sussex. How the hell that place elected Labour and Greens is beyond me. Actually its not, the answ...

Re: Brexit and the current position

Just a glimmer of good news. Bercow is jumping before he is pushed.
What I don't understand is why are so many now queueing up to praise the weasel.

Re: New PM

The latest info coming out is that the neighbours are against Boris living in their neighbourhood as he is too Conservative for their liking ie they are a bunch of leftie Trots or Snow flake Liberals. This is becoming more and more likely to be another conspiracy to bring him down, probably instigat...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

not ER, but now we have dippy birds of Greenpeace protesting at the Chancellors Mansion House speech. How come they never go to Tianamen Square or Red Square or Riyadh or Tehran? I think the general public would take these "people" more seriously if they aimed their protests where it reall...
