Always liked this bloke and he seems to talk a lot of sense, anybody heard his latest on socialism? Basically, Sir David, good friend of our future king, the king after him and the king after him, has said that somethings got to give at the top to be filtered down to the bottom in society, something I have thought , especially in the past 5 years in London. He is on about the super wealthy, so no need to pull up your matress just yet, but i think the chancellor, Riki,or RICHI, might be a tad concerned, seems like a good bloke btw the chancellor, but his 2 billion , yes, 2000 million, might be a little greedy, as he asked us to spend our hard earned to kick start the economy!

He must be on a hell of a wage. I thought mps earned about 80k. Do you reckon he might have a friend in the wages dept

Do you remember the winter of discontent? I was very young but my dad was on a 3 day week as he worked for the council as a dust man. Wildcat strikes and forced out by the unions.
Rubbish piling up in the streets.
Older posters may put some meat on the bones.

Granted he married in to the 2000 million, but if thats the kind of money Sir David is talking about, then thats ok with me! Dont mind riki to be fair, probably the next pm when boris disappears to California, but you only have to drive around Kensington and Chelsea to see how much some people have, and others don"t have a pot to pizz in, obviously only the stinking rich, not us workers! Yeah, i remember the 70"s, had a march through Croydon, thousands, what do we want? The right to work! when do we want it? NOW! The way this countrys heading, we better learn the words!

Jesus, I thought you were about to say he'd died. The bloke is a national treasure.

A pause for breath and an occasional full stop may make your post a little easier to read 👍

Don't knock it. Read it out loud and it doubles as a work out!

Kensington and Chelsea! Presumably all Arabs and Russians. D
I donít begrudge Rishi, his parents did a good job in their matchmaking.

My dad owned a sweetshop and had to serve by candlelight and camping lights due to the numerous power cuts. Probably lost loads of stock

Mine had a fishmongers. Not too great for the chillers and freezers.

I remember the candle light and camping lights. As a kid it was brilliant. Let's do it again.

It was fun as a kid but probably difficult for adults. I lived in a Bromley council flat at the time. I can vividly remember a family dying from hypothermia, which just seems crazy in modern Britain. I won't tell the kids that story.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Yeah, mostly Russian that way and arabs knightsbridge way, the english money is further north in the cotswolds, they have been priced out of London. His parents did indeed do a great job, but i wouldn"t begrudge him and her family paying a little more in to the pot!Society is on the way down, and something has to give, sir david was spot on!
