Re: Harry and Sparkle

The Harry and Sparkle fuss has given Prince Andrew the opportunity to slip back into the lime light beside his mum. I saw videos of him with the Queen at church last weekend. :cry:

I hope the media's current fixation with the entitled Sussexes quickly passes.

Re: Why do bar girls have tattoos on their shoulders necks etc

I don't get why bargirls were singled out. :-k I suppose they're trying to monetize their appearance every day they're working. Presumably the punters who aren't fond of tatts are too polite to say "your tatts look awful". In farangland there must be more than a few employers who won't employ peopl...

Re: David Bellamy Dead....RIP !!

747man - congratulations on beating statts to posting the news. That will be your alcohol free lifestyle giving you the edge.

I read on Wiki that Bellamy as a child wanted to be a ballet dancer. :shock:

Ballet's loss was broadcasting's gain.

Re: The U.K.'s Christmas Election

Johnson made a dick of himself in dealing with the boy resting or sleeping on the hospital floor. That should have been easy to deal with. Jacinda, in Johnson's shoes, would easily have whacked that one back over mid off for a six. Johnson was yorked. :lol:

Re: The U.K.'s Christmas Election

NZ has an immigration system similar to Australia's. It wouldn't surprise me if the UK will be "welcoming" a lot more immigrants if it adopts this kind of system.

I think pointing might be going out of fashion. I've seen some arrests where there are mug shots of the perps on some display specially prepared for the media. The perp doesn't even seem to be there. It's a bit disappointing for those of us who enjoy the finger pointing although the Dutchman here ha...

Now, now. Perhaps we might try to say some positive things about Thailand or Udon. My extended family has received a lot of medical care in the Thai public health system this year. The care seems to have been pretty good.

Re: Elon Musk Wins

If this is the only court decision on this spat, it's a dreadful outcome for Unsworth. He'll be regarded in some less well informed quarters as a suspected peddo (doubled to get around a software restriction). It will be interesting to see if he pursues it in another jurisdiction.
