I have asthma which didn't bother me at all during the searing heat but as soon as the clouds and rain came i was on occassions up in the night with an asthma attack, strange how people are affected in different ways  with this condition.

oooppss I have a heel problem and i bit concerned as I have a working holiday in September which will mean a lot of walking.
GP gave ibuprofen gel to rub on my heels and also a foot balm.
The problem is i couldn't have the Foot balm as Chemist says it is 'black listed'  ::)

Does anyone have any updates on this building?
Having heard it was being turned into a building for people with disadvantages to being pulled down it's gone quite ( I think )

Anyone know what's happening with it?

I am not offended by his comments but then again I don't wear these face coverings.
I just think from someone who held a high position in the UK he should know better, it's a silly comment to make.

There are other words - Golliwog - it's a young child's doll!!
I had one.
My daughter had one - it was always a stuffed toy, then some person decides it's racist.
I had a twin pram as a child.
In it I pushed two dolls - one white one black - so what ?

Stupidity has gained control of the world

Anyone who thinks it's racist have a racist problem I think -

In answer to scimitar you are right in respect of living by a countries law.
I mentioned Dubai - if a person goes there from the UK and steals - they may well have a finger or hand chopped off.

We should respect each others law and cultural living.

This family you observed O.C. obviously a liberal minded family judging by the way the parents dressed their children and the way the lady removed her veil {in public} unfortunately as many people know not every family, from a similar background to the couple, have those choices. I believe those may have been the very ones Boris was having a "dig" at.
This is probably why we are in the mess were in politically, as no one seems to be able to speak their minds they just tow the party line and end up keeping their true feelings to themselves as they don't want to lose a cushy job, Boris on the other hand has nothing to lose by "speaking out" although I don't believe it was all that bad.
Ask yourself a question {Boris aside} if you were put on the spot and asked to describe someone wearing a niqab  be honest what's the first image to pop into your head, I would reply "They look like they're about to rob a bank" this is a perfectly short to the point descriptive phrase, especially if you are talking to someone who has never seen anyone wearing a niqab.

We are so afraid of upsetting certain people in our society that we have lost sight of the fact that Britain is a fairly tolerant country and people are "invited" to live with us and obey our laws, not bring their countries {outdated} ideologies with them and try to foist them on others.

My answer would be they are wearing a face covering.
I'm a live and let live person and respect how other cultures choose to live but would agree we shouldn't be expected to change our cultural way of living.

I watched with interest in a Dubai hotel when a family came in for breakfast.
The children were dressed as our children would be whilst parents wore their countries clothing.
It was the lady I was interested in as I wondered what she would do  with her head coverings - no mouthpiece.
Simple - she just took it off.

I disagree with what Boris said, they are remarks that I wouldn't expect to hear from a person of his standing - if he's not careful he may not be standing for long!

As for security as in airports etc - I totally agree that they should come off!

FCUK that idea  :)) :D 8)

I definitely wouldn't buy anything with that label on and didn't allow any of my children to have clothing with it on either.

At the time of voting I remarked to hubby that I was voting for something I knew nothing about and very under qualified to do so - as were most of our UK population.
With the lies being told from the for and against how could we have made that vote.

Up to date quite frankly I am fed up of hearing about it - I switch off !!  >;

Nail on head as usual - speedway!
Bear in mind that vehicles are entering this roundabout coming off dual carriageways at speed.
Fine if you are in your car and can (even stopped) pull away safely given the chance.
Larger vehicles however incur the anger and insult when pulling out because it hinders car drivers their progress.
If it makes for free flowing traffic from each junction - then it should work. Hopefully.
Personally I like it when the traffic lights don't work in the town centre & drivers revert to using common sense!

If I have a bus or lorry in the right hand lane pulling out - I go slowly with them  ::)  ;) ;D
