Thought Id start this one going because its rather dead on this board at the moment and I suppose all my usual muckers are either at the Stella tennis event watching Dim Tim (lose again) or at Henly Regatta eating cucumber sandwiches (they wish,...NOT).

Anyway please feel free to just talk to yourself blast away and let it go on any company or subject you wish. Just wish Id thought of this one before.

cheers GF.

Hi RF,

Fully agree that austerity measures are required and that is the only way to get out of the huge amount of debt we and most of the world are in.
We can't spend our way out, but there are very simple things we can do.
For a start the government should start acting instead of being all talk.

1 Cut business red tape (they haven't even started yet, according to business groups).
2 Stop all immigration unless that immigrant can prove he/she can contribute to more than he/she would take out.
3 Rule ourselves (put ourselves first), instead of allowing the EU to rule us (putting themselves first).
4 Withdraw from the Human right Act (whats human about letting the scum of the earth stay in our country to the detriment of us all) and have a British Constitution.
5 Consider any minority group, but only change things if it benefits that minority but not at the detriment to the majority.

There must be many more things that are 'no brainers' and that can save billions of pounds.

Problem is todays politicians are too scared to implement right wing stratergys but let us go on and on in the -hit.

Dont know what the answer is.

Perhaphs a third world war!. (hope not)

I agree with you Greekman, although that's similar to the views of the left wing in Greece.

The Grim Reaper came for me last night, and I beat him off with a
vacuum cleaner. Strewth, talk about Dyson with death.

Paddy says: "Mick, I'm thinking of buying a Labrador ." "Sod that"
says Mick: "have you seen how many of their owners go blind"

I've just had a letter back from Screwfix. they said they regretted to
inform me that they're not actually a dating agency.

My girlfriend thinks that I’m a stalker. Well, she's not exactly my
girlfriend yet.

I woke up last night to find the ghost of Gloria Gaynor standing at
the foot of my bed. At first I was afraid....... then I was petrified.

A wife says to her husband: "You’re always pushing me around and
talking behind my back".
He says: "What do you expect? You’re in a wheelchair".

Doctors have just identified a food that can cause grief and suffering
years after it's been eaten. It's called wedding cake.

I was in the pub with my wife last night and I said: "I love you".
She said; "Is that you or the beer talking?"
I replied: "It's me talking to the beer".

The wife has been missing a week now. Police said to prepare for the worst.
So I've been to the charity shop to get all her clothes back.

They've opened a new shop across the road selling camouflage clothing
but I have my suspicions something weird is going on. Yesterday I saw
20 people go in but I never saw anyone coming out.

I've been on the phone for ages trying to book tickets for an Elvis
tribute act, but it keeps asking me to press 1 for the money, 2 for
the show......

I just brought a friend of mine a new fridge, should have seen his
face light up when he opened it

A friend of mine moved into a new house at the weekend so I took him
over a couple of radiators. Just a little house warming present.

I've just heard the window cleaner shouting and swearing outside my
house. I think he's lost his rag.

I went to my allotment last week and found someone had covered it with
2 inches of soil. I went again yesterday only to find it covered
again with another 2 inches of soil. The plot thickens!!!

A mate of mine recently admitted to being addicted to brake fluid.
When I quizzed him on it he reckoned he could stop any time.....

I went to the cemetery yesterday to lay some flowers on a grave. As I
was standing there I noticed 4 grave diggers walking about with a
coffin... 3 hours later and they're still walking about with it... I
thought to myself, these idiots have lost the plot!!

A new middle east crisis erupted last night as Dubai Television was
refused permission to broadcast 'The Flintstones'. A spokesman for
the channel said.....'A claim was made that people in Dubai would not
understand the humour, but we know for a fact that people in Abu Dhabi

My son's been asking me for a pet spider for his birthday, so I went
to our local pet shop and they were £70!!! B*ll*cks to this, I
thought, I can get one cheaper off the web.

Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarves are not happy..

I start a new job in Seoul next week... I thought it was a good Korea move.

I was driving this morning when I saw an RAC van parked up. The driver
was sobbing uncontrollably and looked very miserable. I thought to
myself 'that guy's heading for a breakdown'. There’s a site for sore eyes.

I think some are - my favourite of his was something along the lines of :- "Crime in multi-storey car parks, now that's wrong on so many levels".

those sub humans who raped young girls MUST be deported when they sentences
are up , we do not want them here or there familys .

greekman - 09 May 2012 16:25 - 16618 of 81541

Some of my ideas for a re shuffle.

Theresa May moved from Secretary of State to State for justice as if she succeeds in putting the same number of criminals in prison as she allows immigrants into the country, she will do a great job IE no criminals would ever be let out.

Kenneth Clarke swaps with Teresa May as if he succeeds in keeping the same number of immigrants out the country as he allows out of prisons, he will also do a great job IE no immigrants would ever be let in.

Damian Green Minister for Immigration moved anywhere

Vince Cable Secretary of State for Business (sic) moved anywhere, but further than Damian Green.

Philip Hammond Secretary of State for Defense moved to a boating lake in Mapplethorpe (just about his CV limit).

Iain Duncan Smith Secretary of State for Work and Pensions moved to a new department called State for work as most people no longer have pensions.

Any other suggestions out there.

I understand Tsipras right now asking Venizelos to sign a letter cancelling PASOK's commitment to implement the bailout memorandum. #Greece
