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.

KHALIL Rasjed Dale’s body was found today on the outskirts of the city of Quetta in the southwest of the country.
Mr Dale, 60, who is originally from Dumfries, was managing a Red Cross health programme in the city when he was seized on 5 January by masked gunmen while returning from work.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) issued a statement confirming his death.
Director-General Yves Daccor said: “The ICRC condemns in the strongest possible terms this barbaric act.
“All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil’s family and friends.”
He described the aid worker, better known as Ken Dale in his home town of Dumfries, as a “trusted and very experienced Red Cross staff member who significantly contributed to the humanitarian cause.”
Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan, a province riven by a separatist rebellion campaigning for greater autonomy, as well as violence and crime involving al-Qaeda and Taleban-linked groups.
the borders of pakistan should be closed and let no one out .

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!
