  1. Strange its not made the local news yet, we have a crack on the chimney, about 2 foot long but aside from that I can't see any damage.
  2. Nope, although I will, it was quite a shake... well for a place that doens't get that many lol.
  3. So thats what that boom and house shake was about then, I thought it was a bomb!
  4. Just to add a touch of perspective to this, visitor numbers down here were up this easter. Infact, largely record breaking in some sectors.
  5. Did you forget the original point? Its you harping on about not doing anything.
  6. Would that be the Kurds attacking Turkey on the demand of their own state?
  7. Indeed. Perhaps I should of said 'more' rather than 'the'.
  8. By whom? The Daily Mail? Gawd help us, the world must be ending. Again. Presumably we should of sat back and let Saddam murder the Kurds, the Taliban murder everyone and Gaddaffi murder his own people. Thought not.
  9. Why do you think he was so keen NATO took it on and subsequently made noises about arming the rebels which he knew NATO wouldn't do... genious is does not take.
  10. Interesting developments with the defection, which is a bit of a coup for the coalition, and UK in particular (since he came here and not France/US) Which is interesting, considering he must know he will face questions over the Lockerbie bombing and murder of the WPC Yvonne Fletcher. Going back to the earlier point ref splitting Libya, this is how it was originally, and the old borders could be used, you forget that loyalities lie less with nations and more with regions in much of northern Africa.
  11. How can you say it was poorly thought out? Are you an expert on the middle east and armed forces all of a sudden? That said, a better solution than arming, what can only be described as a badly organised rebel group, would be advisory roles from the Arab League with UN backing. That or come to arrangement to split the country, those who like him and those that don't. Like it used to be.
  12. It was only ever a temporary increase (3 years) On the plus side, they are seeing inflation linked savings coming back thru NS&I
  13. If Saudi goes we won't be able to afford the fuel to put in the planes. Ironic huh. As for Israel, well Hamas seem to deserve all they get imo, its getting to a point again, and they did bring it on themselves. Just wish Israel would use better targeted systems than artillery.
  14. Couple of points I'd like to raise, firstly, is it not the case that the people who are currently receiving more assistance from the Govt will of course be hurt more than others? For example I receive no benefits, tax credits, income support or other you would care to insert. Thus the spending cuts affect me virtually zilch. So it seems a tad incongruous to say the poor or disabled will be affected more, as it can hardly affect people who weren't getting anything in the first place. Secondly, I think it was stated that green belt would continue to be protected as before. Other than that, I think the budget was a step in the right direction for business, certainly the various insitutes seem to give the nod, with even richard lambert enthusing about it. As for the penny cut in duty, well again a first, but the cynical evil oil companies seem to have predicted it and wheeled and some excuse about already having paid the duty yada yada bleet bleet. All in all, good job, lets have more.
  15. For a touch on reality, this was a good read. Jeff Randall, Daily Telegraph
