THE TALK TO YOURSELF THREAD. (NOWT)     

goldfinger - 09 Jun 2005 12:25

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.

So Edward Fitzgerald QC, representing Abu Qatada, told a bail hearing his side would not be able to assemble evidence until September.

There can't be any new evidence, so why the hell didn't the judge just reject the plea.
These people are not in the real world.
Also the judge should be ignored and Qatada put on the next plane out.
The cost to keep this ba****d over the years is far more than my personal tax bill over my working life. I didn't work to keep people like Qatada.

I know about the rule of law etc, etc, but surely this makes the UK an even bigger laughing stock, if thats possible.

Yum Yum - I feel a 'John Gummer! moment coming on! Bluefin tuna record Fukushima radioactivity

Pacific Bluefin tuna caught off the coast of California have been found to have radioactive contamination from last year's Fukushima nuclear accident.

The fish would have picked up the pollution while swimming in Japanese waters, before then moving to the far side of the ocean.

Scientists stress that the fish are still perfectly safe to eat.

blair at the leverson inquiry was a white wash they should now end thewaste of public money it is worthless .

How terrible :- Two held over Derby fire that killed six children

From the BBC - Derby fire deaths: Man and woman arrested

DETECTIVES investigating the fire in which six children died have arrested a 55-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman on suspicion of murder.

doodlebug - 29 May 2012 11:58 - 16846 of 39897

TANKER - totally agree with you, what an utter waste of money. Leveson was eating out of Blair's hand yesterday, it was appalling.

ExecLine - 29 May 2012 12:56 - 16847 of 39897

I thought Blair made a great point to Leveson immediately after the protestor had been removed.

Blair explained that, when something like this protest happens, the protestor's point (ie. Blair is/was 'in league with JP Morgan' and 'also is a War Criminal'), whether it is right or wrong or true or false, goes right to the forefront of the news and actually becomes 'the news'.

And everyone else might as well not be there so they might as well go home as all the other points are instantly forgotten!

I was also somewhat amused to see that the person who seemed most shocked by the protestor's intrusion was Leveson himself. No one else seemed to even bat an eyelid.

TANKER - 29 May 2012 13:08 - 16848 of 39897

blair is a very dishonest person .and as been covered up by the top people of the uk and the states ,fact

TANKER - 29 May 2012 13:10 - 16849 of 39897

we now have a goverment that can not protect its borders so why do we vote for a non gov

greekman - 29 May 2012 16:51 - 16850 of 39897

How can the Leverson inquiry be an utter waste of money.
In these days of high unemployment, this inquiry is keeping several hundred people in gainful (to them anyway) employment, including no doubt several highly paid barristers, advisers, legal dogs bodies and a Judge.
Also a couple of hundred Police Officers, security personnel and a couple of tea ladies.

On a serious note.
This inquiry is costing the Met £4 million, compare that to the £36 Million that is allocated to child abuse for 1 year, and you can see that the high ranking Met Officer (forget the name) who wanted to call a halt months ago was right.
This inquiry should have had a limit on cost and time, so that once sufficient evidence was found for these charges, that should have been it with any further hackies (new term for someone who has been hacked) having to take civil action.

Also, does anyone else just switch off, when they see or hear the name Levinson?

I never thought anything could be more boring than the Euro vision song contest.
The Levison inquiry, makes the song contest almost gripping, mind you so does watching paint dry.


doodlebug - 29 May 2012 19:48 - 16851 of 39897

Leveson takes about 30 minutes to say what could be explained in five minutes - he's worse than watching paint dry. What is he getting paid for all this?

A London Underground passenger has been jailed for 21 weeks after she admitted hurling racist abuse at fellow passengers.

Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, of Romford, east London, directed an expletive-ridden rant at Tube passengers on the Central line on 23 January.



Does this call for a prison sentence ? how many times do you hear drunk's shouting out abuse, and the Police go over to them and give them a warning , or they end up over night in the cell's . She wasn't threatening to assault anyone i don't think.

skinny - 30 May 2012 06:30 - 16853 of 39897

Maybe a 'less expensive', but still effective option, would be a hundred hours of community service - cleaning graffiti or similar.

Video clip

Woodhouse, who is on benefits after losing her job as a secretary, admitted causing racially aggravated harassment, alarm or distress to the man who filmed her on his phone, Galbant Juttla, at a hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court earlier this month.

Today, at the same court, District Judge Michael Snow told Woodhouse, from Romford, Essex, that anyone viewing the video 'would feel a deep sense of shame that our citizens could be subject to such behaviour who may, as a consequence, believe that it secretly represents the views of other white people'.


greekman - 30 May 2012 07:31 - 16854 of 39897

Let the sentence of Woodhouse be a lesson to those of you who have hinted in the past that us Yorkshire-men have an unhealthy fondness for sheep and wellington boots.

Insults like that must warrant at least a couple of years locked up!

Skinny,

OK, thats it, I am deeply hurt. In fact the effect your comment had on me could mean a few grand at least.
In fact I am now traumatized and probably going to suffer some sort of PTSD.
I have contacted MoneyAm to obtain your name and address, so you should receive a letter from my solicitor (fees paid for via legal aid of course) requesting a large monetary sum for hurt feelings, etc.
Mind you its not the money, its the principle!

Note........Do you have cover for civil actions on your house insurance.
If so we could screw the system for a few grand and if you admit to the error of your ways, we could split the cash 90/10 (I am a Yorkshire-man remember).

By the way, I'm not into goats, thats just perverse!

skinny - 30 May 2012 08:29 - 16860 of 39897

Greek, sorry my mistake.
