    You only have to do a google of some of their new chums and then follow the various threads of who their 'chums' are and some of it gets very dark very quickly. I felt out of my depth just reading up about such people.
    I suspect it is not a coincidence that certain people have become so pally with Harry. Makes me think that the Palace and UK intell are inept - surely not.

    My money is on a troubled man, struggling to come to terms with rejection by his family and country, being found in the Canadian forests after having, allegedly, blown his own brains out. 
    I can't see it ending well for him and doubt that something as easy as divorce will be the end of his ridiculous story.

    I began thinking the same thing once the various names of the people they have been mixing with became public knowledge.
    On the bright side, he has flown out of the UK so we will probably never hear from either of them ever again.

    Gathering of world leaders and super rich elite... and Greta and some of her mates with half shaved heads just happen to be in the audience when Trump speaks?
    Did my invite go missing in the post?

    Barnaby Bear, Flying Fish Cove, Christmas Island, moments agoMassive respect for Harry. If it hadn't been for his heroics in Afghanistan then we'd all be speaking Talibanese right now

    Aussie PM advises public to 'exercise caution'.
    How do they do that then? Walk around in a spacesuit? Hide in a basement for 12 months?
    WTF has he been told that makes him say such a thing?

    You answered your own question.
    They are not that breathable.
    Your feet will sweat. Boots without Goretex breathe much more. Besides, goretex lets through vapour but not water. So if your boots overtop, say you plunge into a bog or don't walk quickly enough across a stream, you will carry a lake around with you. OK you can tip the water out, but it will take an age for the boot to dry out. Boots without Goretex will dry out much faster.
    Goretex was a gimmick added so a manufacturer could say 'waterp[roof' on their boots. Then all manufacturers had to follow suit to stay competitive.
    But Goretex is only waterproof for a short while until the membrane develps stress fractures, but even then your boot won't leak water out as fast as it will leak water in. Goretex boots are only waterproof briefly when brand new and unworn. So what's the point, more disadvantages than advantages.
    So, I can't sea any reason for Goretex in walking boots. If you want dry feet wear goretex socks, but i wouldn't even do that.

    There is a court allegation that he took part in an orgy with 9 girls who looked under 18 and did not speak English whilst on Epstein island.
    In other allegations it is alleged that non-speaking girls as young as 11 were trafficked to Epstein island.
    The two allegations are separate and may or may not be linked. That will be determined by the court.
    In other news Alan Dershowitz, who has allegations made against him re Epstein, is now on Trump's legal team.
    I am pretty sure that the Epstein case file has long be closed.

    I presume you've got to look for positive reviews from people who suddenly stop posting halfway through an epidemic.

    I have said this before but will say it one more time. I think people are kidding themselves today if they think that paying a big premium for a brand name re walking boots is going to give them these wonderful boots of supreme quality that will last years and never leak.
    Most of these boots are made in China these days. You only have to look at the boots to see how the quality has plunged whilst the prices have stayed high. The manufacturers are cutting costs and relying on gullible people to keep buying the name. You only have to go on Amazon and read the endless reviews of expensive boots where some stunned buyers from Tunbridge Wells sprout on how they thought they were buying a good brand, paid a lot of money and how they feel let done by their expensive branded boots that leaked within a few weeks.
    Idiots. Pompous fools!
    Some of these brands are having their boots and shoes made in the same factories that are knocking out cheap stuff. I saw a news report a few years back going around a factory in China that was making bras. The owner of the factory was boasting how he had orders with several Western firms - the firms ranged from cheap brands through to very expensive brands. The report showed machinists making basically the same bra but for 3 different brands. It is the same with boots, shoes, virtually every item of clothing that the Chinese make.
    IMPO you have to work on the basis that no boot is going to last years these days. You are better off buying cheaper and resigning yourself to the fact that you will be replacing them in 6 months, or less, than kidding yourself that paying £150 is going to get you something amazing.
    When I buy boots these days I spend a hour or so going through the latest reviews of several boots on Amazon - no point in looking at reviews over a year old as the boots could have been made in a different way in a different factory - and finding out what others think is a waterproof boot. I then take a chance on the best reviewed boot I can find.
    I did this with a pair of Scarpas a few years ago. Oh, and I aimed to get a boot that was basically a single piece of leather with as few seams as possible. Even then, when they arrived I smeared rubber glue into any seams as a belts & braces exercise.
    Rant over.
