Correction...The incumbent V.P. is J.D.Vance not Pence which is the name I saw when I looked him up, obviously not updated their blogs.

After listening to Biden this morning I can only assume his doctors and those around him read this forum!

i don't usually bother watch football. I don't understand the rules -
We did however watch the last three England played.
In Hull we watched it in our room.We bought a bottle of lager and shared it, it just made us a glass and a bit each. Oh don't forget the crisps but we had a packet each  :))
At home we had a can of Carlsberg each and watched the next one.
The final -
A day out at Carsington waters and Sunday lunch with daughter and boyfriend. Back to ours for a bottle of wine with cheese and ham cobs ( or are they baps) obviously had to have picky bits as well
Then it started the ######### from hubby and daughters boyfriend as England struggled  :-? :)) :)) :))
Never mind eh ,at least Corrie and Emmerdale's back on! ::)

Trumps running mate sounds a right bundle of fun, just by watching the news today it seems just over a year ago the vice president pursuivant Michael Pence couldn't stand Trump and he took every available second of air time to talk him down, now all of a sudden they are big buddies.

 It appears Pence seems anti Ukraine and possibly thinks Putin is the bees knees, so any help for Ukraine against Putin will more than likely dry up if they get in. He also has made it abundantly clear he does not like Britain's new Labour government so working with a Trump president is going to be an up hill struggle for Starmer and his crew.

So England's lost, don't worry matches are like buses there will be another one along shortly.

Someone on the news said "You can't blame tiredness over the last month for them losing the match...tiredness...TIREDNESS!!!

 They don't do anything that gets them tired, come to think of it they don't do anything that will make them even sweat. Go back 60 years or more and most footballers had full time jobs, they would put in a shifts all week THEN they would play football on a Saturday, that's when you can say your tired.
These footballers today don't know they are born, play for about 7 or 8 years, retire with a lottery sized bank account and do commercials and commentating jobs at games.

Well it had to happen....... Trump.

The conspiracy theorists are on line in droves apparently....Put up job, the C.I.A. were behind it, etc.
No matter what the reason this is not the way a "civilised" country behaves!!!
Having said that I have always had my opinion about who was involved in the J.F.K. assassination ever since I watched his demise unfold on t.v. when I was a teenager and it's never altered all these years later.

On this side of the pond I doubt there are many Trump supporters but it was shocking to see, he's one very lucky bloke.

General Discussion / Letter in D.T. 4th July

Did you read it?

The letter was from someone named David France, he apparently wrote a consultation paper for the secretary of state for transport in 2013, so already an expert me thinks! for those who didn't read it, in a nutshell :-

He was pulling people to pieces for complaining about the safety of "smart" motorways whilst in Chesterfield the A617 and the A61 dual carriageways used on a daily basis are more dangerous. He also mentioned that some of these people mentioned are "Probably inexperienced drivers"{that's rich coming from an American} possibly meaning they've no idea what they are talking about, as smart motorways are a lot safer and he has statistical facts to back his claim up.

I can find nothing about this consultation paper on line so have no idea of it's content. I looked up this David France and I assume I have the right one {as there are two} if it is he, he's basically a reporter {someone who drives a desk all day!} and if he drives on Americas freeways on a regular basis, which I doubt, he must know of the carnage created on these roads when someone breaks down in a live lane.

Apart from that Americans are shocking drivers which is indisputable.

We had booked to go to the I.O.M. in September with a well known coach firm, got a letter a few weeks ago saying it was cancelled. Never mind, saved a few bob for other days out etc.

Meanwhile what's your thought on Jo Biden

It just gets worse, Biden at the meeting yesterday, when introducing Volodymyr Zelenskyy called him president PUTIN!!! and later he referred to his vice president as "Vice president TRUMP".
He says he's had a least 3 tests to prove his fitness to run and passed basically with flying colours, well of course you can pass when your being tested by yes men and sycophants your bound to come out smelling of roses.

I predict that before the election gets under way Biden will be forced out, something along the lines of
"President in hospital undergoing surgery and doctors advise him he must drop out on {physical} medical grounds" thereby saving face.

Trump needn't do any electioneering at all....Bidens doing all that for him.
