Re: A step too far

This happened to me with our HMRC (tax collectors) when they decided i owed them some money as i didn't do a self assessment on time, i took them to the tax commissioners court and won my case and they had to eat a fair bit of humble pie. Sometimes you just have to make a stand.

Re: Market and King St.

Market and King St.

i went to the market yesterday, first time for years, and although the work that has been done is great what is depressing is that only a handful of stall exist, it used to be very busy when i lived in Shields, then on to King St., enough said, what a sad sad example of a main retail street, again t...

Re: South Shields win the Northern League Division 2

its been a great season, many loyal sunderland fans now attend the games and although they still go to the sunderland match they feel invigorated by the honesty of non league football and the lack of commercialism that effects the bigger teams especially the players in which we have seen shocking at...

Re: Why Belgium?

its a soft target, very disjoint security service, very disjoint country two languages and cultures, huge amounts of immigrants who are marginilised by the general population. In a few words its a basket case of a country which really shouldn't exist. So when the Cameron and his supporters of the EU...

Re: First you let them in..............then kick them out.

One of the worrying reports is that only 20% of the current migrants trying to reach Europe are Syrian and therefore reasonably assume are bona fide refugees, the current system seems incapable of sorting these out so it will step up discord among the population as i don't think anyone does not want...

Why did labour lose the election .........

(constructive comments only please) Now the dust has started to settle, my view is that they are still trying to fight a class war that really doesn't exist in peoples minds as it did 50 years ago.
