    Northern Ireland

    Agreed Joe. I'm a Donegal man who has lived around London most of my life. As a Londoner I am all for a united Ireland or a totally independent North. Expensive nuisance at best. Howver if I lived in Ireland the idea would horrify me. A lot of people I speak to from around Dublin hate the idea as well. They are scared of the extra Sinn Fein elemnt. On the subject of the benefits syste, ther is a saying where I come fro. "Never employ a Derry man, not only will he do no work he will stop everyone else from working"

    How Britain's £239billion buy-to-let bubble burst

    Depends on your point of view. As a Donegal man I agree with you but as someone who has lived in Ilford for 30 years I reckon they have lots of space.

    When did you (mostly) stop buying things?

    About 25 years ago I was forced to go on a course on ISO 9000 as it was then. The guy giving the initial introduction gave an example of quality control. You want to produce boxes of matches. The specification that you give to the guy who actually makes them says that there should be 40 in a box +- 2. The specification also say that one in five should break when being used. That is quality control

    Yes, I used to waste as much of their time as possible and I get very few such calls these days.

    Bombs sent to Hildebeast and Hussein

    I read in one of the papers this morning that the filler was a mixture of sulphur and bits of glass. You might get a smelly fire at best.

    Printer irritation - Samsung CLX 3305

    I've got a Brother HL-1440 that I bought about 17 years ago. £200 then, probably paid for itself several times over by not having to replace dried up ink jet cartridges.

    Curious, the current Tory party's greatest asset is the Labour leader and the Labour party's greatest asset is the Tory leader.
