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.

I am prepared to wait and see. It is obvious to me that the the "austerity" policy has to be modified unless Europe and UK are going to go even deeper into a recession.

What the words will be when there is "fiscal relaxation" occurs, I will leave to you. But it won't be lowering of "personal" taxation, but doesn't rule out lowering of VAT.

The austerity policy is here to stay for quite a time yet. At least until we see some recovery. The Greek anti-austerity vote will turn out to be a waste of time as they have to show where the 7% cuts will be made very soon as their money will be cut off at the end of June if they don't. The anti-austerity parties will have to backtrack almost immediately.

I wait and see once again. You may be right this time. 8-)

But I am often surprised by how many loopholes are in supposed concrete contracts.

Anyway just to please you.

Interesting article by Andrew Rawnsley from the Observer, with a pretty picture for you!

I think a ballanced evaluation.

France may soon realize why Hollande is the first socialist to win since 1981 and only the second socialist president since 1958. I am sure they will soon remedy this mistake.

Why are these posters breaking away from this thread?. They can use filter anytime they want . I dont accept that its not an effective tool. I think its down right rude to steal somebody elses idea and NOT even give an explanation.

If they think they have a discipline case, Ian should be contacted and then he and Bull Share should rule on it under the 2 yellows and red card system thats been in play since 2002.

To my knowledge its still in play, I myself have a yellow card awarded against me as I was being pestered by a former poster.

Use it I say and lets have some manners back please.

What was France like in 1981?

Francois Hollande is the first Socialist president of France since another Francois, Mitterrand, swept to power in 1981. The two men are the only presidents from the left in the short history of the Fifth Republic. So what was the France of 31 years ago like?

We could call the other thread the Punch and Judy thread.

Are you getting as griumpy as N.

Wait until I get my teeth in and I might join in.

Sob sob, just when I thought I had found a Fred Free thread it gets banned. I shall have to suggest to Findsbury Foods that they extend their Free From range (yes I own shares in that company) to include a Free from Fred range of threads!

I just hope this thread gets back to as it used to be otherwise someone will no doubt start a 'General discussion thread'.
I will though give this thread another chance.
The quality of this thread is entirely in our hands.
Lets make it work!
