Rarely has Politics Live cause me to laugh out load but Tracy Babbin managed :lol:

Roughly at at 1 hour 32 mins she was asked if money was the problem :hmmm:

She replied, no, its all down to austerity :shock: :lol:

I gather she used to be an actress so she's use to learning scripts & true, she never actually had to understand any meaning but for fook sake.

T'was many years after this invention I actually used one. My own humble opinion was that if it didn't kill the brain it would certainly make 'one lazy'. :biker:

I've always considered mental arithmetic a knack, in my view not something that can/could be taught :hmmm:

I certainly struggled trying to figure why they were allowed, even encouraged by schools for children to use them :shock:

T'was a luxury in my granny's house in the 1950's :biker:

Accurate quote:

He speculated people might have to resort to using "torn-up newspapers as in bygone days" in the event of a disorderly Brexit.

Happy days :mrgreen: The one thing it guaranteed, you couldn't get away with claiming youm washed yer hands cos the black print was well & truly visible :beglee:

On rare 'special occasions' when she knew relatives from up country were coming to stay she invested in a toilet roll called Izal, twas very thin & slippery, not nice. :Isay:

I've always found the 'argument' that cannabis should be legalised cos its less damaging than smoking perverse. :hmmm:

Even though the point is true why would 'you' knowingly make something that is damaging legal :shock:

Shocking but not surprising :spliff:

OK, I own up to disliking Bercow, always have, always will & find it it beyond me to 'buy' his transformation :mrgreen:

Trust me, his transformation is huge :shock:

In this one he seems to smile but fairly sure inside he was cringing :hmmm:

My opinion doesn't count for jack shit but her's should :hmmm:

He could/should be the 1st speaker NOT to be given a peerage imho. Well he shouldn't complain as he's, when it suits him, breaking with tradition/protocols :oldgit:

I dont think its all down to a poor recruitment campaign :hmmm:

Possibly a combination of the fact that youngsters have become softer as each generation rolls by & others may be put off by the lack of support 'they' get from government when things go wrong :Isay:

A step too far, a step that kills any pretense of a peace process :Bitter:

Without the entire West Bank being on the table there cant realistically be a 2 state solution. I do have a sympathy with Israel not handing back the Golan Heights to Syria though. :hmmm:

As someone who firmly believes that religion is all bollox but equally believe that its anyones right to follow any religion they choose to believe in, this is wrong. :oldgit:

I dont agree with his opinion but to take away his livelihood cos he doesn't comply with political correctness isn't right imho.

I suspect some will be holding back from publicly criticising this protest cos of the message :hmmm:

Surely youm have to ask yerself do the organizers have any common sense, almost certainly have an academic background but academic & common sense dont necessarily go hand in hand :biker:

Why would you try to stop public transport from operating when the alternative is car use, not to mention the people who dont have an alternative transport & cant get to work & will lose pay. :shock:

Fairly safe bet that a majority of these protesters will be students or bourgeois middle class tossers or both. :Isay:

Lord Prick of London backs the protest :whatever: when you'd of thought his response would be to say an unnecessary waste of police time & money + the damage its doing to the Citadels economy :Hi-Guy:

Hardly a hanging offence but why do politicians keep saying their sorry cos clearly it said without an ounce of sincerity :hmmm:

The truth is the only thing any of them are ever really sorry about is getting 'caught' :biker:

This is the price 'society' pays when so called children have discipline free lives from birth. :Isay:

No discipline at home or school life, excluding those so called kids from school aint discipline, its a cop out cos teachers have no tools to adequately punish the disruptive little fookers. That said, most of these modern day teachers are pretty much in step with this fooking PC world that think its bad/wrong to smack children :shock:

Most of the unfortunate teachers who taught me are long gone but I recall bumping into one on a train in the 90's. she had packed it in several years ago cos she couldn't cope with being sworn at etc & being unable to dish out deserved punishment, not that she personally dished out punishment but as I remember to my cost would send me to the headmaster who was an expert :lol:

She recalled those times, said I was a little sod but at least your era took their punishment, which was true cos I personally was told by my old dad, "never come home crying/moaning you've had yer fingers/backside marked by the cane cos I'll mark you a damn sight more, take yer punishment like a man". Very much a you do the crime, you do the time philosophy :mrgreen:

An error of judgement is the kindest description. :Isay:

It reminded me of a very old joke from the last century:

A woman was sat in a packed railway carriage holding a baby.

Train stops & the passenger sat directly opposite gets off, a man quickly jumps into the empty seat. The man without thought says "Christ what an ugly baby, I've never seen a baby so ugly"!!

The other passengers gasped & muttered, the woman starts crying & the more people sympathised the more & louder she cried.

The ticket inspector enters asked why she was crying?

the outcome was the man was ordered out of the carriage, the ticket inspector sat down opposite & reassured her there would be no more upset which cheered her up,he stands up & says:

"I'll get you a nice cup of tea...................& I'll try & find a banana for yer chimp"

She must of been distressed at not been the centre of attention for a few days. :mrgreen:

Oddly enough I've sympathy with the muslim protesters point that their rights should be respected as much as LGBT's :hmmm:

I remember back to the senior school I went to in the 60's, morning assembly was C of E but Roman Catholics were exempt from attending. :biker:

Muslims are imho being discriminated against for their views/beliefs :mrgreen:

If the law can be legally ignored by Sikhs for their beliefs why are Muslims being attacked/criticised for theirs. :dunno:

I'm an atheist so have no allegiance to any religion but I sincerely believe nobody should have to justify or explain why they follow any religion or be ridiculed. :Isay:
