    Someone should tell him about Grace Darling; a young woman at 22 who also got in a boat and did something. She’s still remembered 200 years later. Oh yeah, because of her extraordinary act of heroism.
  2. No I think this was a foreign student crammer college, teaching gcse, A levels and level2/3 equivalent. The students would then go on to a uk university after. I think “management school” is just a marketing buzz word they use to suck in students, not what they teach. I think the students would just move to another crammer somewhere else. There’s probably loads in London. That’s if they take them though. Some schools actually check visas and ability, whereas it looks like this place just took anyone with a pulse and a big wallet. Anyway some uni’s will have just lost a big easy entry feed. And as 1%says, teaching is often appalling, but some schools are very good. Might be good for the students, they may go to a better school and be taught and looked after properly.
  3. Some lucky picks there Guess it’s just not my day. Golden minerals AUMN -31.8%. Well, if you want the rose you have to brave the thorns as they say.
  4. Yes but there are millions of altcoin copies all offering that too now though. The whole scam is now just running on the “bitcoin” name imo. I was into bitcoin at the start, I liked the goldbug language. Mined a few but lost my account, they were only worth a few pence anyway. In 2011 I remember I stopped at a service station and overheard some vagrant in a tracksuit on the fruit machines giving it out about bitcoin being the next big thing. Should have taken the hint . That shocked me how someone like that had even heard of it. Bought some when the price went up in the first bubble and swapped them for some altcoin which then crashed to zero. My details were also stolen. Mined a few more and stored on an exchange but they then got nicked. Cant be bothered with it anymore. Waste of time. It reminds me of a fairground scam where everyone seems to win but when you try you just lose every time. Could buy some in my goldmoney account but I’ll stick with silver thanks.

    Well given the epic media propaganda blitz he’s had over the last week and he only got 37, not looking promising. yep, next vote tomorrow.
  6. I dunno. Watching that video it looks like she is possessed. Seriously fucked up. Seems to snap out of it once the milkshake is thrown, but even just watching it makes me feel uncomfortably tense and angry. If I didn’t know better I’d say some demons are about.
  7. Well, I tried different things but most supplements don’t seem to do anything. But I took a vitamin d supplement for a while. Made me feel exceptionally tired, drowsy and lethargic. Didn’t like that so stopped taking it. I couldn’t cope with feeling like that at work. I've been taking an iron supplement for a while now. Makes me feel great; a real pick me up.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Can Ruth Davidson stand? She is “very quiet” at the moment.
  9. I really think that’s been the Tory plan all along. Scared of corbyn and election, so create a farage populist movement party and let it run. Either we have a GE giving Johnson farage coalition or Johnson jumps ship to BP. Tory remainers are now staring down barrel of a gun. And a lot of backbench MPs are chomping at the bit to get out on the stump fed up being restrained by the “media optics” centerist crap everyday I am sure. Also I think the milkshake incident was completely staged setup to get farage plastered on the front pages today for some jokey humility rather than scandal on the day before purdah. Everyone at work was gossiping about it. Very clever stunt.
  10. Same here; first two today. One was halfway down the hall. They must have really rammed it through the letterbox! libdem “Now your vote can stop brexit. Vote libdem to stop brexit” ohh with a personal (mailmerge) letter from vince himself. Exciting! changeUK “For a people’s vote for remain vote change uk on may23” coupled with a vomit inducing pic of mr chucks taking a selfie. Please display in your window it says. Not if I want a Molotov cocktail through it I won’t thank you very much. Burning sounds a good idea. They’re not even worthy for the compost imo.
  11. I’m amazed you had such problems. I use ebay a lot. Had a few returns now and again but that’s about it. I’ve had much more trouble as a buyer. Getting fake items, things that are in much worse state than the photos, wrong size or spec, listing cancelled after low price auction then resisted under a different user name. These sellers often try to hide behind the ebay system and it’s a nightmare to fight them.
  12. Yep 5 pages and no one’s mentioned the Penrose saga yet. The patterns really do serve a purpose!
  13. Ohh so the new “battle” bus, the cryptic “together we stand” special announcement in the email. Could it possibly be? Is TR standing as an independent?
  14. Well why don’t they get on and do it then and stop messing about. I think people do far too much talking, and no doing at all. I mean, if you’re a Liberal Democrat, then get on and support the democratic vote.
  15. Yes, used to play bridge in the Carlton. Liked east India club, it’s one of the better ones I thought. Membership is good only cos you get reciprocal. Never bothered to join and now I’m out the loop it’s probably impossible to join. They’re so fussy about seconders. I’m sure it was easier in Victorian times when every rich man and his dog was a member. Would be great to know of one I could join in the future.
