Re: Seals at Pett Level

Take a trip up north. I saw 10 or so seals basking in the sun by St Mary's Lighthouse near Whitley bay a couple of weeks ago. Then last week I took a boat trip around the Farne Islands and saw a fair few but also lots of puffins, shags, cormorants quite difficult to see the difference between the tw...

Re: New PM

https://www.politico.eu/article/viktor-orban-anti-semitism-problem-hungary-jews/ Just one of several articles. There is also on in the New York Times. Orbans party used election posters with Jewish imagery and bank notes. Notwithstanding the issue of Soros the far right Fidesz party is in itself ant...

Re: New PM

Israel is also governed by a religious fanatic and actually has nuclear weapons the other countries you mention do not and it is noted that you did not respond to that point that I raised earlier. It also has alliances with Saudi who think nothing of murdering one on its citizens who attended an Emb...

Halton Boys group

Can any photo detectives place this photo in respect of the place, event or activity? It was taken circa 1930/31 that I can identify from my dad's appearance. I think that it is possibly the then newly founded Round Table Boys club in North Terrace. If so it was at the old Salvation Army Hall that w...

Re: New PM

It must be admitted that despite caution being advised by the UK, France and other nations it is America who unilaterally decided to break the international treaty on nuclear development, NOT Iran, despite the very legitimate criticsims of their government that there are. The Iranians are not parkin...

Re: Not so dull Dulwich

At the risk of being too provocative It has also produced at least one prize charlatan, who despite access to a good school, facilities and range of expertise in various subjects has chosen life as a chancer; to do very little by way of actual work, be paid lots of tax payers money - and complain of...

Re: Hastings promenade

Also good to see the various interpretation boards near places of interest in addition to any blue plaques. For example at the lower end of Wallinger's Walk a board explains that Revd Wallinger was the first vicar of St Mary in the Castle and that his mansion and grounds was the site of the current ...

Hastings promenade

Visiting Hastings for a few days. Pleased to see the introduction and growth of plants and shrubs around the crazy golf in the Old Town. Saw several groups of youths on the course during the day just having a good laugh with each other at their shots, failures and successes. The Pelham roundabout wi...

Re: The new multicultural Hastings

Hairygit. It is very easy to slip inadvertently into expressing an opinion based upon some press reports, that I assume is where the story of the Bangladeshi men may have come from. Our very own soon to be gone Prime Minister jumped on the bandwagon whilst Home Secretary and thought she would have a...

Re: EU Elections

By 'corrupt and self serving' do you I wonder, include NigelFarage? Supposed champion of British fishermen, appointment as a member of the EU fisheries body but who only attended 10% of their meeting; who swans into the EU parliament makes a brief speech often insulting colleagues and then walks out...
