With regard to my post about 800 migrants arriving in one day....   I have no problem with welcoming the poor frightened Afghans.  What it must be like to know you will live in Taliban's version of Sharia law.. Women will be OK if they obey Sharia law... what the heck will that be like.  I would like to research and see what it entails.  I think the UK is taking 20k but this is over 5 years I think.  Councils have to be able to prepare accommodation etc.,  schools will have to be got ready.    :-[

On Saturday 800 migrants arrived in 30 boats from France. This is after we handed over over 50 million pounds to the French to control the situation.  Apparently the smugglers used confusion tactics to throw the French off balance.  Where are we expected to put these poor souls?  They complained because Napier Barracks (somewhere in the South) was not good enough and if they are not happy they set things on fire.  But they complained after the do-gooders and bleeding hearts brigade said that it was disgusting to put them in army barracks. Most of the migrants who arrive are young men with just a few families.  Anyway I have got that off my chest.   >:(   >:(

Sorry you are missing reunions but surely it will all be over soon.  I am hoping to see Simon at Christmas, in fact he is going to book to fly on the lovely Singapore Airline.  I flew with them once and it was lovely, but 13 hours is a bit too long to be in the skies.

Are we the only ones who come on here or is everyone busy?  Must see if I can persuade Ernie to come on.

We are apparently free as from yesterday but most people will continue wearing masks. I vowed some time ago that I would not venture on to public transport.  Boris old foe, the vengeful Dominic Cummings, is at it again telling all.  If I was an employer I would not employ him ever.  Most people take him for what he is a chap riddled with fury at being sacked so he is getting his own back.  >:(

I hear on the BBC World Service that house prices in Sydney and Perth have risen enormously during this pandemic.  Also inflation is a problem in the US.  Not sure what has happened here except booing at the the Euro football match and the general racism being experienced by young black English players.  I was going to message Steve and ask who he was voting for in the Denmark/England game.

Why can't this MB be as busy as the last one we had?  It is so hard work! :-\

I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the site opens up now, Lee has obviously been working at it.  We open up on the 19th July which is called Freedom Day but I fear that is too quick with the Indian variant doubling all the time.  My nephew (daily Mail journalist)  went to Wimbledon on a freebie, and caught covid.  He is only isolating until the 15th July and has only had one jab.

Is everyone OK?  I am off out to eat tomorrow so I hope I am OK.

Cheers everyone ;D

Now a thousand cases and many of the older Indian residents refuse to have to vaccine. This is terrible that our recovery could be scuppered by these people. It makes my blood boil.  Many of the black people who refuse the vaccine think that the government  have put a chip into it and maybe that it will make them infertile!

General Discussion / Indian Variant
« on: 08 May, 2021, 02:25:19 PM »
There are now 500 cases of the variant in UK.  It is Indian workers returning, maybe students etc.  Singapore are having the same problem with returning Indians.  It could stop him coming for his annual holiday, Singapore is also on out green list of places we can go to. But I will never be able to set foot there again, which upsets me.  I dream of wandering down Orchard Road, visiting the Marina Bay area, and swimming daily in the condominium pool.  My arthritis is a damned nuisance and I can't think of any thing to make it bearable. Maybe if I insisted they might try and make things better, just to be able to meet my daughter in Manchester for a shopping trip would be super.  Anyone else have these kinds of problems and do you have any tips????

I hate Scouse and Geordie and Yorkie etc so you have always called you Martin.  Tony was never know as Geordie, always Tony and Alby was not even a Geordie and I never knew his God given name, hailing from Sunderland.  Did you call Ernie Geordie? Maybe he was just Soapy to everyone but me.  Where is Steve from?  Someone answer me please?   :(

I am still experiencing slowness of loading and went to make my bed while it loaded today.  Will it be my system or what?  Tomorrow when I boot up I will test my internet speed and then log on to the MB.

The webpage takes a long time to load, but maybe that is my system. The fact that I have an ssd will not make any difference, it must be my wifi/internet. :(

Is this going to be our MB or is it a work in progress?

It was lovely to read all the old messages on the GB.  I am still finding the MB a little hard to make sense of but I will soon get used to it.  Love all you are doing. I want Ernie to come on here but I don't think he is interested these days.  ;)

Who will have to delete the spam on the Guest Book? It used to take ages, but there was never any on the MB.  New Office 2010 arrives today so it will be good to have a more up to date version.  Why can't we go back to XP or Windows 7?  I used to love the screen savers on Windows 95, they were awesome.  I liked all the bells and whistles and one doesn't get them anymore, sadly. :(
