Re: Herring anyone?

There is a lot of detail of Hastings fishermen causing havoc to Gt Yarmouth. If memory serves correctly it was the then equivalent of current young Brits abroad, wrecking places, getting drunk, yet having the legal right to do so. It is explained in Historic Hastings book, unfortunately I have lent ...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Little Seahermit trying to deflect an argument and failing to succeed about the NHS. Prescription charges have unfortunately been with us for decades. However I have never been charged for a hospital bed, or for MRI or CT scans or for my food as an in patient. No bills come my way for a meeting with...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

I don't use YouTube so this was entertaining and then led to the wonderful Cass Elliot and John Denver singing 'Leaving on a jet plane' , at a voter registration campaign in 1972, followed by Boys Aloud signing in Welsh (I had not heard of them before as I don't watch the talent shows), then the Afr...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Thanks Richard I always enjoy your brief histories that fills out detail of an issue. According to the Hastings Observer in an article in 1911 an ancestor used to run in front of the fire engine at night with a torch in the mid 19th C to warm of the approach of the engine A state provided internet s...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

It is free at the point of use in the same way that the NHS is or the roads and paths that you use. Or street lighting or police and fire brigade. Gone are the days when the fire service would look at a building and see if it had a sun on the facade to decide if they would do their duty. I understan...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Freely available broadband is a public infrastructure investment for the future. Increasingly people are required to access the internet whether it is to complete a school homework project, or for claiming various social security payments, or purchasing goods on line - and perhaps more importantly t...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

CBE keeps churning out the same sort of guff without any self reflection. Without knowing the context of the phrases it is impossible to assess the meaning of the writers. A slogan is a slogan but is rarely put up in isolation to other material. Who put this together and why? What were they intendin...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Seahermit, you should look in the mirror as it is you who raised the idea of a 'revered leader', not me.

By your own suggestion, that seems to indicate you are stupid. It is necessary to have a little logic before commenting

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Seahermit. You keep going on about a Revered leader but dont tell us who she is. Is it your Revered Leader? Why are you keeping her a secret in your cult?

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

CBE Farage is the very epitome of the elite that he is supposed to despise. First rank of Public School at Dulwich College till he was 16 when it was clear he was not inclined to hard work. Dad found a place for him in a Broker's firm. Set up and bankrupted a company and dad helped him again. Found ...
