    Freedom of expression

    Not interested in soccer at all, but... it seems stating the truth now requires 'investigation'... :banghead: Of course, revealing information that could have serious adverse consequences for the country should be a crime. But, how on Earth have we arrived at a situation in which stating the...

    What do we all agree on?

    Allowing for the fact there is always at least one idiot who wants to try and stir up trouble whenever possible by disagreeing just for the sake of it, how about a thread in which we see if we have a consensus on whatever issue? I'd like us to cover a great many subjects, some may lead to...

    Hang on...

    A lot of remoaning ninnies - who, of course think joining the EEC / EU was a good thing - are claiming that everything they think is wrong with the UK has been caused by Brexit. Many of us who advocated and support Brexit made it very clear that because the UK had allowed the EU to become so...

    Defectors?

    There were rumours at Labour's conference about some of their MPs joining the Conservatives. Now there are the same rumours at the Conservative conference, and even a number... 3. I have no problem with this sort of thing and I guess they've seen the light, but then I'm a Tory at the moment...

    Rational choice of ram = growing pic's?

    I sell some breeders as yearlings and two-year-olds, but almost everything goes to people who speculate on potential breeders, or as stores, with stores being by far the majority. So, for me both as a breeder and seller, what a ram looks like at one or two is not really of much relevance; what...

    Any EUrophiles want to justify the EU and its member states breaking their own laws?

    Come on, have the courage, you know you want to - especially you @Ashtree *- defend your beloved EU. Spain and some others have broken their own national (as required to have by EU law) and EU laws on various things. You lot were dead-keen on 'international law' being followed a while ago, why...

    Sir Keir Starmer says it's 'Not right to say only women have a cervix', I say this is literally madness...

    To be in total denial of an obvious and demonstrable truth is as good a definition as one can need to classify a person as not being in touch with reality. This isn't a political preference, or something else in which a personal opinion is clearly that and no more; it is someone who aspires to...

    France recalls ambassadors from Australia and USA - blatant discrimination!

    Why not the UK too? :mad: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-58604677

    The great 'Wall' of Greece

    Greece has built a pretty massive wall - see below - to keep 'migrants' out. Something which seems entirely reasonable and they are absolutely entitled to do; and nobody can blame them, being on the front line when it comes to this sort of thing. (not sure how great the overall benefit will be...

    Any Canadians think Trudeau won't win?

    As per title in re Canada's forthcoming 'snap'election. Chatted with a cousin over there early this morning, he voted for JT last time - despite being a Conservative - but won't this time. He thinks most Canadians are a bit peed off about what they think is an unnecessary election now, but that...

    Self filling bowls, advice please...

    I've no experience of these, always having used troughs of various sizes and types. But I'm going to try changing part of my set up this year, so am intending to have a couple of separate pens for yearling and two-year-old beef steers, just half a dozen in each to see how it goes. A trough is...

    Colin Pitchfork

    There is no questioning his guilt. I've no problem with this individual being executed, but even those who have surely couldn't argue with his being detained until death. My own experience with people like him convinces me that they never can be reformed, and will always re-offend if released...

    Most hardwearing grass of all?

    Need some for a hard-used place; tried gateway mix, tried so-called tough lawn mixes, all failed. Suggestion for this toughest of locations* greatly appreciated. *under the children's swing...

    Oh dear, oh dear...

    Only five years after miserably failing to retain its second biggest economy (equal to the combined wealth of 19 of its other minions) the EU is still determinedly avoiding democratic accountability, persisting in its use of failed politicians and hypocritically pursuing 'relationships' with...

    8 Values 'test'

    Well... I did it and guess what... far from being the conservative I though myself, astonishingly I'm a 'centrist'! :woot: I guess it's my libertarianism and social-liberalism that skewed it... :ROFLMAO: Have a go and see what it reckons you are and how it compares to what you think: 8values

    What should the EU be? Is it perfect, if it needs to change, how should it? (asking remainers / EUrophiles)

    As in the title; young @Muck Spreader mentioned in another thread that I should be concerned with the UK not the EU, and he is right and I am. But those in the EU, those who aspire to be in it and those who mourn the UK's leaving it, all obviously like it, for whatever reason(s), so, I'm...

    The 'color' of American politicians...

    This isn't a dig at any particular party since all over there seem to have rather weirdly tinted members; but from having an undoubtedly orange Republican President, there is now a strangely pinky-orange Democrat Governor of California, see below. I've checked other pic's to see if this one...

    Roman Protasevich

    We all have our differences regarding such things as religion, Brexit and so forth, but... if ever anyone finds himself doubting the real value of our democracies and the ability he has to hold and express whatever opinion he chooses, think about the appalling situation involving this poor...
