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.

Decided to look back in after a few weeks to see if it was still the 'reply to F**d thread'. Shouldn't have bothered as its worse. Its reply to T****r thread now as well.
This thread used to be great, with serious subjects debated along with clever funny comments and the like.
Presumably those who reply to such rubbish do not want the thread to be as it was intended, but to go along the pathetic lines it is doing.
If only we could get this thread on track, I am sure a large percentage of posters would come back and post again.
I will look back in again in a few weeks, but not holding my breath
Its a great shame, as I and I am sure others have enjoyed debating the multitude of issues, diverse or not.
I have even thought of trying to start a more serious (still including those clever diverse comments) thread, but no doubt this would also be taken over by F**D and T****R and the like (both squelched) or those who play to their ego by replying.
The best way to beat a wind-up merchant, which these two obviously are as they no doubt still argue that black is white, is to ignore them.
What I do find surprising is that many who reply to these two, often post on other threads with posts that I find very sensible and interesting.

Have you been away?
Strange how some who have "strong" opinions find it difficult to tolerate dissent.
An Italian friend teased me yesterday by reminding me of Berlusconi the media magnate and press reporting of his premiership in Italy.
His remark was that it is nice to see that the UK has its own Berlusconi and Mafia.
But pointed out that our God Father was in the Cayman Isles and his henchmen are in Downing Street.

What interests me, is a greek looking to see how many times another person has been mentioned on a thread and yet claims he has "squelched" the person concerned.
But, he is still able to evaluate the content and"evidence" within the posts, which of course, he hasn't read and yet condemn any of the contents out of hand.
The thinking man's approach to life.
Very glad he has retired from his previous occupation.

I hope you did not think I was getting at you specifically, as I wasn't. In fact I count you as one of those whose posts I have enjoyed perusing over the years.
Still thats if for now, as said will look in again in a month or two.
Your last post is a good example of 'not a serious post', but clever and funny, even if it was intended at myself.
regards to both Greek.

Just had a "thought"!
Couldn't we get R Murdock to stand for PM.
Perhaps, we could get our empire back.
Sorry, perhaps he could get his empire back.
Settle down boy!

It must be nice for Rupert to know he still has friends in high places, even if more and more think the H of P has become a place of ill-repute and the management becoming poorer.
The saying of birds of a feather flock together.
Has Coulson flown the nest?
But it is reassuring that immigration problem has been solved by the national borders becoming impenetrable due insufficient manpower.
I do feel safer, knowing that there are insufficient numbers for proper inspection of those wanting to enter the country.
Cruella and Damian Green were given this information months ago, but have chosen to ignore it.
But of course had the time to reduce manpower.
Madness reigns once again. Willy was right.

Pledge over airport queue delays
Border official speaks out over queues
Leaked figures obtained by the Labour Party reveal that around 880 officers (10%) have been cut from the UK Border Force since 2010.
A further 1,550 officer posts could go by 2014/15, the BBC understands.
Shadow home office minister Yvette Cooper said ministers were being complacent over the level of chaos at Heathrow airport border control.
Immigration Minister Damian Green said 80 extra staff were being drafted in to cut queues, among other measures.
Prime Minister David Cameron, who met Home Secretary Theresa May for an update on the situation on Tuesday morning, told ministers they must admit there is a problem at the BAA-owned airport.
He said, "we've got to grip this," BBC political editor Nick Robinson was told.
The Public and Commercial Services union warned the government was "putting a sticking plaster on a serious injury" by drafting in staff from other areas to work at Heathrow."

Point taken, but this was all above board. It prompted a flurry of blood donations and highlighted a need for constant donations, people queued to give blood afterwards. Locally of course, but there is always a need.
