Tatami, tiles, wood or marble wont change the fact that the coffee sucks and is hugely over priced but then what do i know.

If you brought him to a hospital, and left him there, they would be forced to either take care of him, or to discharge him to some facility. By the time they figured out what was going on, she could empty out the bank accounts, max out the credit cards and be long gone. Or do you think that murdering him and drowning herself was the best choice?

One word mate, dignity.

Hanging up his spurs, top man! Always loved his acting since i first watch my left foot. Retiring now is a choice decision unlike man other greats who cant let go and end up doing very poor movies just to stay in the limelight.

Enjoy it Mr Lewis you deserve it mate!

Calvin Coolidge once said:

We must have no carelessness in our dealings with public property or the expenditure of public money. Such a condition is characteristic either of an undeveloped people, or of a decadent civilization....

Posted in: Britain left 'somber' by high-rise inferno, says queen See in context


"Theresa May has flaws, but presents dignity and calm self-restraint in the face of an unscrupulous cynicaly motived politicking lynch mob mentality, unwilling to wait for the announced judge-led inquiry."

WTF really?

As a londoner and human i dont get how we are shifting to a world of tolerance, im no anarchist but come on people have a right to be mad and let down on many levels.

Quoting Aldous Huxley from a great interview with Mike Walace in the late 50's "I think, this is the danger that actually people may be, in some ways, happy under the new regime, but that they will be happy in situations where they oughtn't to be happy."

@ Dissillusioned

Well said that man! As a Londoner i grew up catching and eating eels but only as an adult did i learn how complex the eels life cycle is and how the cant be farmed. As for iwashi's i always cringe when i see all the baby ones in those foam packets and why they dont get the chance to grow... oh i know greed.

Me and the Mrs never ran home to grandparents we just did it ourselves(if you cant raise it on your own why have it kind of logic. luckily we can due to her maternity leave and our bars location to home.

J families need all the help they can get, think of the scorns a Japanese guy would get when he return to the office if he took all the leave available, pure window dressing as ever.

Posted in: Young people mount campaign to raise minimum wage, end poverty See in context

Good for them and i wish them well both here and in the States but nations have always been built off the back of the "disposable" working class, so i doubt anything will change really. Looking to the future robots will do it, so where does that leave the working and middle class - obsolete i guess.
