  1. because that would mean putting their head on the block and risk not being re-elected or becoming another Peter Karran and get 'just' the basic pay, they don't want to rock the boat tbh, the system stinks and is loaded towards Comin - that is wrong, the IOM needs an opposition to keep Govt in check and not rely on the establishment rich MLCs most of whom are happy to just go with the flow.
  2. So is it the next pandemic or are the media causing panic? Are we not due another 'Spanish Flu' anyway?
  3. TBH we need new faces... But we'll get the same old again and they will be voted in again... The main issue is the lack of party politics - you vote for a name/face/best liar rather than policies that should be able to be delivered. UK Politics isn't the best but at least you know where you stand - Rich - screwed by Labour - Poor - screwed by Conservatives - Middle - screwed by everyone
  4. Source please as Syrian's getting visa's for anywhere in the Arab world is almost impossible!
  5. TBH the schools meals are a disgrace, there are usually 2 'hot' options - I've known 1 of them being a sausage roll (not exactly what you call healthy!) there is usually some sort of fried potato. there is always a pudding. I stopped sending my son to them as often there was nothing he would eat with the hot options (and he's not that fussy an eater)... so I was paying over £2 per day for him to have cold pasta and some peppers! We now stick to packed lunch for him, and as long as there is pudding available with school meals then I will happily add a small chocolate biscuit to his lunch as I know he will run it off in the play ground!
  6. I think the worry with allowing him to just do this is how many other people will he damage? Honestly he's just a few tweets away from WW3 - someone needs to take that phone away from him.
  7. Wow - lots of empathy and understanding here...... I'm not Kate's biggest fan but I have sent her a message wishing her all the best as splits are hard for all involved (remember they both have children and grandchildren) but must be worse when you have all on here giving their 2 cents worth,
  8. The article states she will be here min 3 days a week - some weeks may be more I would assume, there are lots of ppl who travel over on a Mon morning red eye and go back to their homes on Fri tea time spending 5 days in their office. Nowhere does it say she won't be doing the same - why do some people feel she needs to be here 24/7 - with the technology we have available now the days of needing to be in one place and staying there are over.
  9. PC you seem to know a lot about these issues, are you an ex member of the mental health department? do you have a personal grudge?
  10. TBH we all know JC is a twat and anything he says should be taken with a pinch of salt. When I stood for election he was all over me like a cheap suit then when I didn't win (yes I came third out of 3 ) he was soo sympathetic etc. I then challenged him one day on this views on the MSPCA and ever since I'm a troll and blocked from his page LMAO He even threatened to sue me. I find here more interesting and more on the ball when it comes to seeing peoples views on politics however the constant childish bickering is very draining and I wish those that partake in it would just cease.
  11. I've given you the reason several times... The reasons are from a Northern Irish Catholic who now lives here.
  12. Did your family live through it? Where you brought up with stories about it? Was your family directly affected by it?
  13. Ummmm The curfew ONLY in Catholic areas Allowing Catholics to be beaten etc in front of them and doing nothing to stop it Using old intelligence to raid houses and arrest people Being the ones who enforced interment Killing innocent people Need I go on?
  14. *from giving beatings.. Soz on phone
