    That UK Election Thing

    In return, I would ask why these WMD aren't at Portsmouth, Southampton or even just situated outside our Mother of Parliaments? You know Costa Rica? No army, no weapons and has land borders with Panama and Nicaragua. I see the WMD are doing a fine job of deterring terrorists, no wait...hang on....and not only that but they are a target for terrorism and sabotage. Without ever being used. Tell that to the folks of this country working at suppressed wages, unable to put food on the table or nappies on their wains and getting prescriptions from the doctor for household essentials...like toothpaste. I'd be against WMD no matter which party I supported. But hey, we'll never compromise our security, says Ed and Dave. One wanted to go into Syria, one did go into Iraq...oops, compromised! As long as Russia doesn't have theirs pointed at the South East, it's ok to have them? I'll sleep safe knowing I'm "protected" by things which could cause holocaust 35 miles from my front door. Rant over and no offence meant btw.... Except it's just another drop in the ocean of our huge budget.... If you really want to save that cash we could drop the bird-shredding... I mean "wind farm"........ subsidies? Those starving people are really not likely to have any better of a time under an incoming Labour government, Syriza is the most left-wing party elected in Europe in decades and....... erm, as far as I can tell, they're still starving their Greek arses off over there. My points were not only financial, as I think you'll see. And I think they were starving their arses off in Greece long before a left wing Government took office. I'm not for Labour or the Conservative neo-economic plan personally, never mind their defence strategy. Let's face it, they're both cut from the same cloth and will vote through renewal of Trident together, just as they vote on a lot of things together, regardless of opposition.

    I doubt that the Queen still uses tampons Read in Lizzie's voice..."My Government will bring forward a Bill specifically aimed at women, by reducing the taxation liability on tampons..." etc

    Dead Pop Stars

    Just like to add that I find this forum more enlightening every time I visit. It's good to not only learn about the famous and infamous, I also like to read about their sphere of influence and learn new things outside of my own interests (Joel Spira and the dimmer switch I found interesting enough to stop and look deeper into, for example). Near the end of the article on Sab, there were quite a few very famous people he performed with, and again that points out it's not just the famous who make it, but those who help or are part of that success, perhaps not as well known but deserving of our notice here for their lives. Not disliking anything anyone has said, they are entitled to their opinion.

    Shove Off, Eh?

    I am the only one who finds the concept of heart attacks disturbing,think about it you could suddenly die at any moment of heart failure. Anyway I am rambling and off topic but my heart goes out to his family and friends. I had a heart attack in January...yes it was disturbing, but speedy NHS services saved me. 48, no health issues, not obese or anything, just happened. You never know.

    Reports coming in that he has married his manager...isn't marriage what you do to a very long term partner, especially in the public eye, when you've just had some really bad health news? Hmmmm.... Here's a report in the Mirror: http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/barry-manilows-partner-responds-wedding-5484870

    That UK Election Thing

    UKIP guy on Daily Politics today, when asked what his party will do for women, announced the policy of removing the tax on tampons. That would make for an interesting Queen's Speech, the devil in me would love to see that.
