    Been through it already.

    Back in 1995 we were living in Antigua when hurricane Luis decided to park itself over the island for 36 hours.

    We had a basement hurricane shelter built in the house and spent those few days there. It sounded like an old steam engine sitting on us. When we surfaced, our car, a Toyota Crown big and heavy, was in the swimming pool. The island had been devastated. Coconuts were flying through the air like missiles according to our friends and work colleagues. Corrugated roofs were slicing anything apart that got in their way and most of the roads and communications were washed out.

    It took years to recover but the islanders took it all in their stride.

    Did anybody read the comment from Tony Blair on immigration. He is saying now that it could be limited even if Britain stayed in the EU.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...to-stop-brexit.

    does he not reliese that this against EU rules of free movement. This means that this would never be implemented so it is just hot air to try and his is confusing everything again like he did with Iraq with his spin.

    I used to enjoy reading the Gaurdian and it was good paper but now it is too biased for my taste

    He is history now and should have the decency to respect the will of the majority but then again he never did even when he was primeminister.

    Blair cannot seem to get it through his thick skull that the people of the UK have decided to leave the EU. I don't know why the papers bother to give him column inches. The man is wasting everyones time.

    Unless someone publicly kicks him hard in the arse he still has influence and he's bucking our democracy.

    As far as I'm concerned he is guilty of Treason against this country for a second time and should be locked up.

    The ending was quite swift with Ian posting that there would be 7-day bans but then the thread was taken down so I don't know what happened after that (perhaps Ian would like to let us know.....?). Anyway, as you know there was quite a bit of history between reddiesel and Emma and basically Emma "lost it" after being called or maybe implied that he was an imbecile - he posted a tirade of abuse (I won't repeat it) deliberately miss-spelling rude words and that is just not acceptable on a public forum. So, rather that tidy the thread it was completely removed so that was why you had the "Do not have privileges" message.

    As regard having missed the comments you'll just have to imagine naughty words with $ signs instead of the letter S...........Oh and as regards missing the ending to a good film I can tell you what happened in 'Titantic'.......the ship sank!

    I didn't get that. I've seen that film about 4 times now and it sank every time. You'd think they would have realised by now that there was a lump of ice in the way.

    Thanks, still doesn't make up for missing it.

    Are you sure the Titanic sunk or was it a conspiracy thing and like Elvis, they are all alive and well?
