The first time in history a UK government has been found in contempt of parliament.
Well Pete-MK, if you want to go technical
We have just won a concession and bear with me here, the provisions of standing order 24B should not apply to any motion pursuant to section 13 of the 2018 European Union (withdrawal) Act
What the *^^* does that mean?
Nah, but we are getting there, maybe by the year 2070, going by the downward trend.
Latest figures on the BBC news last night, is that there is a bit of a downward trend of the amber nectar, wine and other drinks.
Australians like to drink to compensate for heat loss and are very social being in a mainly outgoing outdoor society and having a good old swig of refreshing beer or lager, but a recent survey shows that we are drink less achohol now than the last 50 years.
This is a good sign as drink is still one of the biggest killers in Australia. This was on the BBC news last night and in the papers today,,,
On a personal note, one of the biggest secrets Australians had was exporting for decades absolute bland Fosters lager and Four XXXX kangaroo pass to unsuspecting foreign markets like the UK. Since then a lot of micro breweries have set up and sell real tasty refreshing beer around the Oz coast. Looking forward to sampling them all soon.
As for myself there is still nothing to beat real English ales and beers using hops and barley to create fantastic smells and taste. You have the real stuff here

Pete-MK says...As it happens, a second referendum is being mentioned so often these days it's becoming more and more a certainty.As I said before, as the conspiracy websites said way back when joe public accepted to leave , there was not a cat in hells chance of us leaving the EU, you just wait and see May going down the tubes in a few weeks with no-one wanting to accept such a raw deal for both brexiters and remainers, and then there will be a call for a second referendum and we will be back in the EU before we even left it.
Rob says....Heh, bandi, you know who made that video you linked? And who funds that TV station? :)Well that video was to show just like the Stephen fry video above that fear propaganda is on both sides of the Brexit argument.
Sorted: The problem was my 15GB of mail space was filled with a year or two of spam, which I never look at, as mostly filled with these 'Helga says come up and see me' ads, which multiply like a pyramid scheme, starting with one selling your gmail address to 10 others, and then expodentially exploding into your spam folder (oh ek!)
I got on to google and they emptied the allotted space. Told me to go in there with eyes closed if need be, and delete trash every month and that will sort it. Well, someone has to do it
Gmail always seems to be full of unwanted spam.
Why the name BLACK LOTUS?
I assume this will be like the film Animatrix that made a number of episodes back to back, to do with the matrix world.
So this should be seperate episodes based around the bladerunner world.
There is a lot of reasons for diabetes, and not just over weight, though being overweight does not help one bit.
Common warnings signs of diabetes include:
- Increased thirst.
- Increased hunger (especially after eating)
- Dry mouth.
- Frequent urination or urine infections.
- Unexplained weight loss (even though you are eating and feel hungry)
- Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
- Blurred vision.
I would not wish it on anyone, and I would advise all to watch out for first symptoms of it and go see your doctor for advice and diet, to get back on the road to recovery, if possible, before its too late.
I can open my gmail account to get my emails but....
When I click to read an email this info comes up (see red circled)
saying I am are having trouble connecting to google.
This happens if trying to read an email, or trying to delete an email.
New emails are still coming in. Help needed. Thanks.
(Gmail is on my home desktop computer via chrome browser).

Looking forward to this film due out soon, read the book back in 2013...
Seems my prediction was right about that it would make a great film due to the visuals, My quote on here from 2013...
Bandi says....Signed copy of `Mortal Engines` by Philip reeve (in hardback). £30 reduced to a fiver, in bargain books.
He is one of the authors of `Horrible histories` the childrens book series, so this is supposidely a childrens book about an after atomic wars Earth and towns and cities are now on wheels, eating up each other for assets. There is also the anti-traction league dedicated to oppose these wandering towns.
The story seems quite heavy and dark material for children, and leans more towards adult reading.
It is a very descriptive story and would make a great film, with massive moving cities, great escapes, hunted by renovation men (androids), etc. Really gripping and a good read.
Yet another rule change in the lottery to give Camalot even more profit....
The Lotto which now has a crazy high odds chance of winning due to the increased number of balls, has now changed the rules again, by removing the Lotto raffle.
This used to give you the additional chance of winning...
1 prize of 1 million
20 prizes of 20,000
So thats 1.4 million pounds now scrubbed from each draw.
The only decent change has been to make the 5 balls and bonus ball now 1 million, instead of the measily 64,000. But usually this does not come up often, so Camalot will be coining it in yet again.
Getting 3 balls (very difficult now due to the odds) will give £30 instead of £25.
Like thousands of others, i gave up the Lotto a while back, and now put my gambling money on the postcode lottery, where the odds are better and prizes seem a lot higher than they used to be. (due to having more punters, hence more money in the pot).
In fact the postcode lottery is hammering out TV adverts now, as most likely the punters will be leaving the lotto in droves, with this latest change.

Re card trick....
You need these 'distractions' to keep you sane in a '9 to 5' office job
Thats why I moved to a site office job early in my career, where most of the time you are out and about, and not stuck on a seat..
The music was good, so assume they are remaking the same music, maybe with some new tracks?
Yeh, she was whiney
Episode 6 ..the Punjab, again another recent history episode, quite good except for the poor excuse for aliens being there. Though I suppose there had to be some si-fi in it, or it would have just been period drama.
Rob says .....People who were into them before Live Aid would say that, but I remember them being really, really uncool. We'd just had the punk era,
The punk era destroyed music for me, could not stand it, in fact, I am sure it almost destroyed 'Top of the pops' as people lost interest. I was glad the day punk finished and real music came back in.
Rob say.....Brexit removed
I think you have just read the future.
Thanks for the review.
I bet the 'live aid' re-enactment scenes were fantastic, I remember watching the whole day and night live on TV (the UK and USA concert) and Queen stole the show, just one of those moments of rock history not ever to be forgotten.
Will have to find the time to see this film before it finishes at the cinema.
Nt really going to miss the Xmas Doctor Who, as the last one i enjoyed was the 'Voyage of the dammed' back in 2014 with David Tennant and Kyle Minogue.
Conspiracy websites say May will go 'with no confidence vote' as she is stuck on a 'no second referendum' stance, and the next leader will ask for a second referendum vote for the people to decide again, or best out of three, to ensure we stay in the EU, before we even left
PS.....As I said many times on this thread, Conspiracy sites have been saying that the second referendum was always on the cards anyway, since we (the plebs) decided shockingly to go against our betters and leave. But was just a matter of how to wangle a way of getting a second referendum back in play. This could be it.
We wait and see, if this will happen. Interesting times ahead.
We will definitely know by the 29th of March 2019, when we leave or maybe not
I was up in Glasgow visiting wifes relatives a few decades ago.
I saw that Wakeman was on live. I used to love his albums until the night I went to a Glasgow theatre to see him 'live in concert' and everything went well till his microphone packed in mid-number.
Instead of being professional...
He went nuts screaming abuse at the setup team/backroom boys, and then turned on the audience who were booing, he then shouted and sweared at them to shut up.
he got boo-ed off the stage, left, and I don't think he ever returned to Glasgow.
Glasgow is well known as the deathnell of many a comedian and musician, who never return. At least we did not throw fruit at him
PS..still like his albums.

Ler's stir it up more and make your high blood pressure worse
What ever happened to the £350 million a week pledge to go to the NHS with the savings from leaving the EU?
