Well, if nothing else, you can always depend on bipat to tell us what she knows for sure.

This is actually a very good question.

As you apparently are the only person who knows everything why are you not giving daily reports to allow us all to know everything that is going on everywhere?

I asked regarding poster Morpeth as he disbelieves everything he reads regardless of the origin and describes it as drivel-----unless----he agrees with it, then it is true and puts a link!

1) I am not an expert in defence matters and have never claimed to be so.
However knowing officers at the naval base (it is virtually taking over our town), knowing the type of aircraft carriers there, knowing that our nearest airport is also a military airport, it is not difficult to believe reports that planes can be at the north west border against invasion within six minutes is true.
(Between us has been often far more than 6 months a year-)

(Haven't seen Russian sailors swimming naked in the sea for some time----local counsellors complained! )

But this is exactly what you are guilty of - dismissing everything that contradicts your view!

OH has asked me to order a Nadine Dorries book from Amazon---wants to know what her books are like! Should I worry?

I think we all do this regarding UK tabloids etc. There is a difference in a "view" and actual or local knowledge. I would not doubt what you post regarding Hungary.

Only if he reads it - and then asks you for a second one!

A Telegraph reviewer back in 2014 says Four streets (Misery on Merseyside) was the worst book he had read in 10 years. There are however 1000s of 5* reviews on Amazon.

Well, there are over 1 million Sun readers out there, plus many more Mail & Express readers!

Telegraph has become just as bad.

Brexit triumph as Crown Stamp returns to pint glasses after bonfire of EU rules


Although I reckon it's just a continuation of this purely nostalgic untriumphant non-event.

Brexiteers toast the return of pints as Govt considers bringing back imperial measures


Much ado about nothing.

Surely "Imperial measures" would be tiny now? We would be having beer by the thimbleful.

No masks please, we're British. Or something.

Johnson's new cabinet, 30+ people, shoulder to shoulder.
