Death At Airport

19 October 2015 - 09:22 PM

This is a really weird one. Why would she have no money? And why would that throw a woman who has dealt with so much in her life. http://www.theguardi...stanbul-airport


Seems seriously strange :unsure:

Internet Browser Problems

10 September 2015 - 06:35 AM

I have been using Safari on my Macbook since I got the Macbook but it now can take  over 2 mins to load a page when you launch it. It then usually works fine for a while or even the whole session but sometimes it stops loading again randomly and takes even longer.


I downloaded Firefox some time back because of issues previously but after the last update it now refuses to allow me to update to the latest version telling me I don't have permission. It also loads like a device through applications which seems odd to me.


I am not sure if there is a better browser I could download of how to fix the ones I have - any advice appreciated. :ok:

Ok So Who Is Shitting Themselves

06 May 2015 - 06:54 PM

I am utterly crapping it about the GE results. I just cannot face another 19th Sept feeling. Although nothing will ever match that feeling, if the results in this election are way off what the opinion polls suggest I just can't face the thought of what things will be like.


I have a similar feeling of holding my breath as I did on the 17th Sept and am utterly dreading the wait for the results! 


I know quite a few of the candidates too and that makes this election so different to any other I have lived through. I just want things to go well for all the people I know who have worked so hard.

Lib Dems

27 April 2015 - 06:43 PM

I have come to the conclusion that I actually hate the Lib Dems the most out of all the Westminster parties and the more MP's they get the more I will worry. They have no principles whatsoever and all the want are positions in a cabinet. They will sell out on any issue to get it. How anyone can vote for them is beyond me as all their policies are disposable. 


The last thing I want is for them to have enough MP's to make a coalition with anyone and if they make one with Labour that will be the worst option of all because any time the SNP MP's vote against anything at the same time as the Tories all we will hear is "the SNP backed the Tories" forever and a day. It won't matter if they voted against something for entirely different reasons.


The Lib Dems tell us that they have helped to moderate the Tories well I for one would love to see what they actually got their way on because I do not believe for one minute they made any discernible difference. They are simply chameleons! 

Community Empowerment Bill

17 March 2015 - 07:56 AM

Ok, any of you super informed people know anything about the allotments section of the Community Empowerment Bill or at what stage the bill is at.


My mother has suddenly decided that allotments are a really important issue to her I would however suspect that it is my father trying to feed her negative stories about the SNP from the telegraph since she had to double check what the nasty Nats were actually up to.


The issues seems to me that the Bill is trying to encourage Local Authorities to make more land avaialble for allotments to reduce waiting lists however there was not a minimum size being set so the fear was that rather than make more land available LA's would divide up the existing allotments to meet waiting list targets.


This is as much as I have managed to get from google but what I need to find out is are they still considering the comments and looking still open to setting a minimum size or has this been rejected and for what reason. I am not sure what stage the bill has reached in its progress to becoming an act.


To give you some insight to what I am dealing with my mother claimed that the SNP want to reduce the size of allotments but couldn't tell me why they would want to do such a thing. What they are actually wanting to do is increase the number of people who have access to one but if there is no minimum size then you could argue that smaller allotments could be a consequence but it is clearly not the aim.


I get utterly frustrated with Daily Telegraph readers that keep challenging me with the nonsense they read so any help appreciated before I phone back with the actual facts of the matter.
