    But we have loads of interesting posters!
    I am repeatedly enlightened and educated by what is posted here.
    There really isn't an orthodoxy; I genuinely thought I was going to fall out with @Hopeful on climate change but I have entirely conceded that when it comes to detail he beats me hollow even though we can come to different conclusions.

    Hmm, I must get round to clearing some of the stuff I’ve accumulated. 
    There was a chap who lived just down the road who died a year or so ago. Late 50s I think. He had a heart attack I was told.  
    His brother cleared his house. A skip was put outside and was filled with his possessions. It made me think we spend our lives accumulating stuff. At the end of the day it’s someone else’s problem to dispose of. Sad.

    He obviously doesn't live in a very rural part of Turkey. Istanbul, I am told by a friend from Turkey, is far less strict in its adherence to islam than other areas in Turkey. I also recall a TV programme in the last year or so that mentioned the vast sums of money being spent on building and staffing religious (islamic) schools throughout Turkey. 
    I might also mention the increasing number of coloured people in England that has occurred during my lifetime. I remember walking with my parents to a friends house in Fulham seeing a family of West Indians walking by. It was a man, woman and two children. I think they were the first coloured people I had seen apart from pictures in books. This would have been early to mid 1950s. I was maybe six or seven. 
    At school there was only one black pupil. She was African girl, curly black hair in short braided pig tails. We had free milk at morning break in those days. We had to collect the milk bottles and put them in the crates. I was the first milk monitor brave enough to pick up the bottle she had drunk from. All the others were too scared to touch the bottle she had drunk from for some reason. There was no pressure on them to refuse to pick it up or parental resentment against blacks back them, it was nothing more than an example of how we prefer people of our own ethnicity. It was all the more puzzling to me as at the Catholic primary school I attended most of the teachers were Nuns and we were regaled with tales of missionaries spreading the faith to children in Africa.  We weren't taught to be afraid of people from Africa, more that we were expected to help them escape from the poverty and malnutrition that were present in their countries. That we should educate them and let them benefit from Western expertise and assist their countries to grow and prosper. 
    In the street we lived there was an Indo Chinese woman, Malaysian, Thai or Philipino I never bothered to ask. Her husband had met her when in the services. I thought she was very beautiful. So obviously I was aware that there were people of different skin tones in the world. 
    Ironically I lived in Woking then, where one of the first mosques in the country was. There weren't many muslims living in the area. There must have been I know. However many there were they were not noticeable in number. English clothing was the normal attire. I don't ever recall seeing anyone wearing traditional Islamic dress, ever. I could go on and narrate how those of Indian and Pakistani heritage became the majority in various towns near where I lived. 
    In the almost seventy years of my existence on this planet I have seen the country change from being almost exclusively ethnically white to there being an ever growing number of brown and black skinned people turning some areas into predominantly non white. It is a clear indisputable fact as we all know. The change has most definitely increased in the last twenty or so years. Of course the vast majority of those of non European ethnicity are the same as us just wanting to get on with the peaceful enjoyment of their lives. The trend is inescapable though and the changes are becoming more and more evident. I have also seen how crime has changed with the growing number of non whites. Gang violence starting with black kids and the Yardies, the crash for cash road accidents, the Islamic terrorist attacks, the surge in stabbings. These are all directly attributable to immigration. How can anyone say it is my imagination and that I am being led by other posters and that we are doing nothing more than echoing what is said to confirm our fears. 
    I can well believe that if present trends continue there is an inevitability of civil conflict. No one can predict the "event horizon", unless there are steps taken to prevent what we can see happening. It is well documented in other parts of the world, why does anyone think it will not happen here?

    An episode of Casualty was on last night. My wife wanted to watch it, honest!
    Anyway the programme was about a terrorist who drove a lorry into crowds in a market with a delayed action bomb inside that later exploded causing even more deaths and injuries.
    Of course one of the doctors was a muslim, and the closing scenes when he was travelling home on a bus, with a rucksack on his back, and calling home on his mobile, showed passengers behaving nervously because of his ethnicity. #notallmuslims
    Not so long ago they wouldn't have used an Islamic atrocity in the UK as the theme of an episode. Is the  BBC ship of state propaganda starting to change course?

    I am no longer able to do my job - having been far too good at it for the benefit of my health.
    But while I am off work, some cunt else is doing it.
    Better or worse than me is debatable.
    But that the graveyard is full of indispensable people is not up for negotiation...

    Oh yes. Equity release products have been given a makeover in the last couple of years. Interest rates on lifetime mortgages are slightly higher than mainstream mortgages, not much though. Fixed rates start from around 3%. You can choose to pay the interest as it falls due or let it roll up if you want. Depends whether you want to leave a legacy. There is a guarantee that the loan will never exceed the value of the house, so you cant get into negative equity. Also you can redeem up to 10% a year if you want without penalty on most.

    sleepwello'nights reacted to the gardener in Brexit Betrayal thread - Part 4   
    On the main roads you had a customs booth which only stopped commercial vehicles. Cars just drove straight through. There were police and army checkpoints but these weren't always right on the border.  More often than not the army checkpoints were mobile. The police and army checkpoints were security related and nothing to do with customs or trade. 
    Outside of the main roads the other 250 or so road crossings were unmanned and only the tarmac / potholes / speed signs would give any clue as to which side of the border you were. - so basically an open border though some were blocked off by the security forces if they were known terrorist rat runs. 
    The whole Irish border bollocks is just that, bollocks.

    No doubt that's the reason why the "Globalists" encourage population growth. Sir James Goldsmith identified their problem that they have forgotten that the purpose of the economy is to serve the needs of society. 
    This interview was posted on our forum a while ago. His conclusion seems to be borne out by what we can see happening. https://forums.digitalspy.com/discussion/1706963/sir-james-goldsmith-listen-to-him-predicting-the-mess-we-are-in

    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from DocH in Going on a Cruise   
    I've been on a couple of cruises and enjoyed them. Both were on the same cruise line, so smallish ships, about 1,000 passengers, so not the really large 4,000 + ships. There are always areas without other passengers around, so you can have time on your own if you want.
    Both I've been on had contingents of Americans; it was irresistible to bring up the Trump into discussions. Had some varied responses, he is very marmite either loved or hated. Most interesting response was from an American who was one of the guest speakers. He was obviously intelligent,  and a republican, but he had a poor opinion of Trump mainly because he was embarrassed by his verbose speaking manner where he continually repeats himself whilst not adding anything new or coherent to the point he is labouring over. I couldn't draw him into discussing the policies Trump had implemented. My wife kicking my shins didn't help! Usually bringing Trumps policies on the treatment of ex servicemen silences his critics.
    Despite being the same demographic as most passengers there have always been some younger couples around.  The facilities onboard are excellent, especially the meals. There are several restaurants on board ranging from self service buffets to more formal restaurants. There is definitely too much food, and the temptation to avail yourself is hard to resist. So much so that I put on over half a stone in the two week trip across the Atlantic.  Even daily stints on the rowing machine in the gym (good practice just in case) didn't keep the weight off.
    All in all I enjoyed the cruises. Its a far more pleasant way to travel than flying. My arms don't ache at all . My mother always used to be dismissive of package tour holiday makers. I took on the same attitude, never having been on one, until I mentioned it to the owner of a business I worked in, he said why knock it, the hotel is the same, as is the flight, all it means is you get the benefit of a lower price over booking each element yourself. You need to try it before you criticise it.

    "Unwilling to admit why progress has foundered". 
    He is one of the liberals whose illusion has been shattered, unwilling to acknowledge that we are still progressing, but not in the direction he anticipated. He has identified a deep seated fundamental aspect of our human condition, the desire for self preservation, that allows evil to exist but wrongly concludes that progress has stalled because we don't follow his ideology.

    I thought this forum usually does provide evidence to support the opinions we express. I think that most of us do test our ideas and don't simply follow ideologies. That we don't follow the opinions that the So-Called BBC and most articles in the MSM espouse isn't because we are all following a particular political dogma. It is in itself telling that even though our groupthink is similar we have arrived at it independently.
