Re: Pregnant & want to move back to UK, but partner doesn't

Having been there and done that, admittedly without offspring to think of, unless you're a real shrinking violet who doesn't want a life of her own, it's just not going to work. I was married for 28...

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

Indeed it was, unless of course you're generalising and speaking for everyone.

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

Actually, I'm as "balanced and impartial" - as you are, if not more so.
If I sound bitter and twisted, it's because people don't read and make assumptions - it's very tiring having to explain...

Re: I Have A Dream

I use Spices of India too - some very nice authentic sauces. I go for the Gits ready meals and use them as sauces, because it's so hard to get a good dhansak anywhere. I also have a Madhur Jaffrey...

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

So how do you interpret the rule that says anyone can be selected to make up the numbers?
And as I've already told you, they didn't make a care order.

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

a) it sounds to me like it would be possible, for people with nothing better to do, to hang around a court, making it known that they are available:


b) I never said it was a custody case, and...

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

Pension age was 60, now it's 65 (for me), it may have been several years ago, but it was still sudden when you're planning for a future that includes a pension.

I was due to receive it this year, but just fell foul of the birth date.

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

'hers' thanks. My view of the UK is my opinion, and just because it doesn't agree with the rose tinted set, doesn't make it any less valid.
Shard's response sums up most of the responses. It doesn't...

Did you read anything? This was 30 years ago? Do try and get all the facts together before you reply.

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

I can't believe you wrote that. I was on a jury, with 11 other people, and you are saying I'm mistaken! No wonder you're retired!

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

Well, I must be mistaken then, and jurors were telling porkies, if the latter, then I rest my case for the credentials of jurors.

Edit: Thanks for the add on insult that has become so much a part...

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

Well maybe the system's changed, but the facts are the facts. When I was on a jury, you could volunteer, and it was a child abuse case, i.e. physical harm. Perhaps you're too young to know these...

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

The question wasn't whether people need or want loads of land or not, but whether they can obtain it. Sorry, but your 'born in France' scenario doesn't hold water. One pair of neighbours have...

They more or less admitted it, they were 'professional jurors', i.e. they volunteered - unemployed or retired. They had made up their minds before the case was even heard. Without going into details,...

High taxes? Maybe for the well off, but certainly not for me. I'm sure it is possible to keep goats in Northern Ireland, but not everyone wants to live there.

Re: What makes Britain completely crap?

For the same money (as this place), you can get a brand new on the block bungalow with half an acre. I'm sure not everyone in the UK wants half an acre, but for those that do, it's impossible. New...
