Re: Don't Dump you Animals to Emmigrate

I can only assume a 'furkid' is a fur kid i.e. child substitute. It is a shame that some people have never had that closeness to animals. They might learn something.

Talking about 'Brassed Off' took me back, not the 80's, but the 60's. 'Brassed off' was partly filmed around the places of Diggle and Delph, on the edge of the...

Re: Riots.

80's revisited - and I am not talking shoulder pads.

For me, the best film that summed up those feelings was 'Brassed Off'. Saw it on it's opening night - never known an audience to stand up and...

Re: Renting without viewing

Risky - you will be locked in for at least 6 months.

I booked a cheap motel for a couple of weeks - wasn't much more than renting but gave me breathing space and time to find somewhere.

Re: Car - which is best

Make sure it has a cam chain - belts are really expensive to replace. I know Nissan have cam chains.

War Zone - An area in which military combat takes place.

It may be 'like' a war zone to some, but it is not. When the Grenades, Machine Guns, mortars are deployed, on both sides, then it will be a...

Re: Riots.

Re: Is it really the differences?

I wish we lived in simpler times. It is so tempting to stick some cotton wool in your ears and 2 pencils up your nose - but like they said - who would notice a mad man around here. :)

Re: Riots.

It is not like the old days for one very simple reason - skilled people used to be out of work, whereas many of those youths on the street are simply unemployable. Huge difference.

Re: Riots.

Why has it got to be either shoot them or nothing? Arrest them, lock them up, send them on boot camp (no matter what age they are), get tough, get them to learn respect.

Back at you. How would...
