Re: brexit

From what I read neither the media nor the present government want out of the EU, they don't care what the people voted for. They both give little credit to the people to be able to think for themselves and both have spent the last three, or is it four, years pushing their own agenda. The people are...

Re: A Victory for the Libs and common sense in Australia

Come on Andy, Clive Palmer's sixty million was well spent.

There would most likely be a big hoohaa if he had just donated it, as it was he even got to say how his 60 million was spent.

Re: brexit

Rosie, I think the way our Party system operates, those in safe seats never felt vulnerable because we tend to be tribal in the way we vote. Most people vote the way their parents did come hell or high water, but this fiasco has galvanised opinions in a way our politicians are not used to and may w...

Re: brexit

Rosie, the 73 will be the ones representing us at the Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg, the rest of them will be MEP's for the other countries in the EU. Of our 73, the UKIP ones know that they will be out of a job if they succeed in their main policy i.e. leaving the EU, the rest of the 73 wi...

Re: brexit

Can I ask another couple of questions? I read this this morning "more than 700 MEPs elected by the public, 73 of which will be representing Britain for as long as the country remains in the bloc," 700 elected and 73 representing Britain. Why elect 700 when only 73 represent Britain? Who pays these p...

Re: brexit

Ralph the more I read the more I get confused. It is very hard to find real information about the deal that Mrs. May wants to get passed in parliament and what the problems are with it. I did read somewhere about the talks she had with Corbyn and the things he wanted to change, can't remember now wh...

Re: brexit

I remember when the UK joined the common market, as it was initially called, and I must admit I thought it a good idea. I don't agree with what it has evolved into today. As an outsider looking in, and that is what I am these days, Britain may as well not have a government of it's own. If the Britis...

Re: The Royal wedding

In my eye young lass's should be out doing what young lass's do best. That is, shopping , going out to clubs gigs holidays together. Having girly day's out/in and down pub to have a good old fashioned chin wag. Not to be regulated by the firm and protocol. i await for the mist to clear. Royalty Pff...

Re: The Royal wedding

Rosie, the Coronation ceremony was on TV, but there was much opposition to it being so. The Archbishop of Canterbury was said to be against it on the grounds that it was improper that such a sacred ceremony would be seen by people in pubs and other places of ill repute! I believe Then Queen herself...

Re: The Royal wedding

You are right Ralph others will marry in my lifetime (I hope) but I meant this will be the last one to be fully televised in my lifetime. I think this will make number five, Margaret, Charles, Andrew, William and now Harry. I don't think either Ann's or Edwards weddings were televised which I believ...

Re: The Royal wedding

Well I shall be watching it. I haven't missed a televised royal wedding yet and I expect this will be the last one in my lifetime.

If I'm not mistaken the first televised royal wedding was Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones and I was still at school.

Re: What you doing this weekend?

My Saturdays are all the same as long as the weather is good. I am up at 4am, showered, dressed and in the car by 5.30am to get to the market and be set up and ready to go by 7am. We finish at 1pm and I am usually home by 2pm. I always enjoy the good company and if there are customers around that's ...

Re: Commonewealth Games

We took our kids to the Commonwealth Games in 1982 at Brisbane and our son took his kids this time to the Gold Coast. They spent the Saturday at the athletics, went to the weightlifting, volleyball and swimming. He wanted to go to the swimming finals but couldn't justify $400 a ticket. Overall they ...

I don't have too much time at the moment Sherri but will try and give you a little report. I thoroughly enjoyed Airlie Beach, Cairns and Port Douglas. I only walked around Airlie Beach and Port Douglas and the the Skyrail and Train trips in Cairns. The Barron Falls had lots of water falling down the...

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

Well, that's it done and dusted.

I did what I set out to do and that was the Skyrail in Cairns. My friend didn't leave the ship at any port as the humidity was a bit too much for her so I did it on my own.
