  1. [quote user="Quillan"] His job is to ensure the bank makes money for its share holders, that's the people that actually own the bank,  Diamond gets results, he has made Barclays a world player.  [/quote] I'm guess we'd all be curious as to who did what to whom with which, but for the reasons above I'm sure they'll close ranks to protect the brand and blame a few loose cannons; why not indeed? I for one wouldn't like to go through the whole bank collapse again.  It's not the first time Labour have moved to manipulate the market either, . .  why-gordon-brown-sold-britains-gold-at-a-knock-down-price/  
  2. As an adjunct I have a bosch 550w plane, and a De walt 650w hammer drill, both cost me deep in the purse, for what they are, the De Walt was nearly £100 after discount. A Carpenter who has been working with me was using obviously more powerful and sturdy versions, in fact both plane and hammer drill were 1000w 'Parkside' and I asked him where he got his tools, 'Parkside' are Lidl he said '£29.95 each, brilliant, always last longer than the guarantee'; you don't always get what you pay for. . .
  3. [quote user="woolybanana"] Now that he is unemployed, I wonder if Mr Diamond would care to become Chancellor of the Exchequer. he is just the sort of aggressive, go-getting person needed to lift UK out of the mire and not to take any flabby nonsense from professional politicians on the way. What a talent he could be! [/quote] Seems a good idea, has more acumen than some . . .  /Bob-Diamond-Labour-knew but I knew nothing [:D]
  4. Thanks Paul, Got a Fridge coming, promised 9 days delivery, suddenly notified it is now 18 days delivery . . . [blink]
  5. The Bank of England told us to do it, claims Barclays , Is there no end to Labours profligate perfidy? ''HMD - Hold my Dick/ Daughter Nell Diamond tweets! - What a lovely girl[:$] The Deputy Governor of the Bank of England encouraged Barclays to try to lower interest rates after coming under pressure from senior members of the last Labour government, documents have disclosed.  The-Bank-of-England-told-us-to-do-it-claims-Barclays
  6. Maybe it's just a phantom bump and she is really worried about what they would find during raid on her home[Www] Carla-Bruni-home-raided-by-police
  7. AND AGAIN!, I've lost count but it has just occurred again; logging in with a password I know to be correct, access denied, and all through the whole procedure again, so state password forgotten, wait for e-mail, log-in with new temporary password and then log out and reset password back to original and finally logged, I'm so consumed by this ongoing problem I'd forgotten why I bothered to log-in, is there any point posting this ongoing glitch? I wonder how many others . . .
  8. Insurance for Classic Cars or bikes over 8yrs old http://www.retroassur.com/pdf/doc_adhesion_retro.pdf (that reminds me my renewal is just about due)
  9. I've only just seen this, but it deserves posting for those interested in resistance history; Count Robert de La Rochefoucauld, who has died aged 88, escaped from Occupied France to join the Special Operations Executive (SOE); parachuted back on sabotage missions, he twice faced execution, only to escape on both occasions, once dressed as a Nazi guard.

  10.  [quote user="Chancer"]I am ashamed by both your comments.[/quote] You can assume neither I nor normy have the inside track on Carla, however for reasons of jocular cliche on this figure of fun, fun to develop the theme, either way, we may discover paters stature in about 9 months time[:P]
  11. [quote user="NormanH"]He did a better job than the present lot, and his government was elected, not cobbled together .... [/quote] Perhaps you have ASD Normy, the present lot inherited the kind of poison chalice Teflon would never have had the chutzpah to pick up, created in no short measure by his party's Beneficence and the maleficence of those parachuted in when things got sticky, witness  Blair-defends-PFI-as-NHS-trusts-face-bankruptcy not to mention  After-Barclays-the-golden-age-of-finance-is-dead. Cobblers to Blairites[:P]    
  12. [quote user="sweet 17"] Well, she's left him or thrown him out or whatever ......[/quote] Hell hath no etc, Revenge is a dish best served cold . . .
  13. [quote user="NormanH"]I wonder who the father is? [6] [/quote] Does she know who the father is[:$]  
  14. [quote user="Quillan"]  He is more slippery than the underside of a slug.[/quote] and about as low, or as Blackadder would put it - ''I think the phrase rhymes with Clucking Bell!"
  15. [quote user="You can call me Betty"].  I was told my name/password were wrong, then I was told that my account was inactive, then I re-registered, then I received a new activation code, then I got taken round in ever-decreasing circles, and eventually, by dint of struggle and perseverance, I got back in. I wonder whether the lack of posts and/or new members could perhaps be to do with many thinking that life is just too short for all that? [/quote] deja-vu . . . my experience and thoughts too, though mine seems to have settled down a bit now  
  16. What kind of Heatwave would you say? a kind of rumba Irvin Berlin, Ella Fitzgerald, Marlyn Monroe 'Makes the mercury - Jump to ninety-three' kind? or a motown Martha and the Vandellas kind? I feel this burning pain, Has high blood pressure got a hold on me kind ?[8-|] PS. raining here[:(]   .
  17. [quote user="woolybanana"]What about those made in, say, Barnes?[/quote] Not as good as those in Waitrose - Dorch, and nowhere near as good as those in  salles-lavalette [:P]  
  18. I didn't know Marie Antoinette brought the croissant to France?, apparently as a 14-year old bride hankering for comfort food from her native Austria, hence the French term viennoiserie, but now allegedly Croissants-dying-out-in-France . I'm pretty sure our boulangerie makes their own but apparently not all do, does yours?
  19. [quote user="Mr Ceour de Lion II"]  JWs seek answers for themselves, are encouraged to think for themselves and learn for themselves.  Now whose [sic] the more intelligent? [/quote] I've always thought that intelligence was the ability to think and act accordingly; following some dictat that blood is unacceptable as a result of minor view doctrine in the 21st century is perverse not intelligent. Life is the single most valuable thing, denial of which is the biggst sin; anyone requiring hospitalisation should be signing themselves over to advice and practice therein, certainly not attempting to overule best practice.
  20. would that include the usual suspects? those with eating disorders, attempted suicides, drug addicts, smokers and alcoholics(did I miss anyone)?
  21. Would it be more to her taste with a spoonful of Creme de cassis?[:D], though I prefer Mure with Kir royal.
  22. [quote user="crossy67"]  they end up in the sink.   [/quote] in the sink! in the sink!! I don't beeelieve it!!!
  23. They will struggle to achieve much of a success rate to live based on their religion, What happened to consent forms on entering hospital?

  25. [quote user="Chancer"] And now I know where to go to find them!!! [/quote] Avignon, or Ile de la Barthelasse peut etre?[Www]
