  1. Oh no its OK, phew, cancel the shock... You said 'walking', - jeez I should've went to Specsavers!
  2. Quite like that baker woman's work, wotsit? you know .. Merry Bury or something..

  4. * Phillip a 'dogger' ? ... well blow me! ..who'd have thought it? (imagine Her Maj exclaiming 'what are you doing Phil?' ... and the reply comes back in his best Roger Moore RIP 007 voice ... 'just keeping the German end up Ma'am ' .... mind you, respect to a 91 year old, credit where its due! ) * I know post this not in keeping with the nature of this tragic thread - but God knows we need a little light relief from the traumatic events of this week. ..... Seriously now... Sincere thoughts to all victims of the fire .. the deceased (known and unknown) RIP ... relatives, friends, all who have lost loved ones, homes and non replaceable personal items... and not forgetting the brilliant emergency services who's jobs this week have brought them face to face with things no human should have to endure thanks go to them. The anger and upset is obviously understood and shared, but the predictable and wrong bandwagon jumping ' race-cardists ' are the last thing that anyone needs right now ... premature misguided anger and vitriol directed at possible the wrong targets is not helpful either. Perhaps this is best saved till facts can be established and blame apportioned correctly... those people responsible for this will, I hope, feel the full weight of everything that is due and coming to them when identified. Lets save the retribution for those that really deserve all that they get. I too detest some of the people who have been vilified and attacked in the hours and days since the tragic event occurred - but as much as I whole heartedly dislike May, Khan etc I can't see how they can personally be blamed for the way this building was constructed - I doubt either of them had even first hand knowledge of the tower before this happened. No more so than Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May, Wilson or Heath would have had knowledge or hands on experience of this 1960s built Bristol tower block that I've lived in since the mid-nineties, the one that I am comfortably housed in as I type right now... If, heaven forbid, anything terrible were to happen here, I fail to see how any of the political leaders mentioned above could be seen to be culpable for it, unless personally proven to have had a hand in the quality of design/building/maintenance or any subsequent penny pinching corner-cutting shenanigans on their watch. Make no mistake, heads must roll for what has happened in London this week, but before taking a knee jerk scatter gun approach to recriminations lets make sure THE RIGHT PEOPLE, THOSE ACTUALLY RESPONSIBLE, THE ONES WITH VESTED INTERESTS are the ones winkled out and are the ones who ultimately get it in the neck.

  10. Trying to find out about an area known as Upper Hill Court .... want to check it out but can't find a map showing it anywhere... believe its a few miles away from Kerne Bridge. Any general Wye course fishing advice or info appreciated, access, locations, permits etc ..
  11. God help the people trapped in that terrible fire and are so far unaccounted for... Awful awfull scenes through the night of Grenfell Tower - literally a towering inferno, 24 storeys entirely engulfed in flames and smoke, unbelievable, can only say God help those families caught up in this tragedy... hoping for miracles now, but many must sadly be lost. Fire raging still after first reports of fire at about 1am .. four and a half hours later... must be risk of collapse, just pray that doesn't happen... so many people desperate to know if friends and families are safe.. .....
