  1. I really feel sorry for the older and poorer people in ukraine they live from hand to mouth anyway the rich and mobile at least had the option of running away - some of the older ones even remember the nazis in the country in the mid 1940s such a shame that mans infumatitiy to man  comes back 70 years later

    Quite frankly, Peck, this is rather pathetic. Others have tried to move on from the desperate politicking,  this thread is to do with humour and you are massively missing the mark. Brexit is done and dusted,  it doesn’t help you to take things you can’t change so seriously, move on and yourself a favour.


    (with apologies, but I doubt I’m the only one getting fed up with this stuck record.)

    He forgot the straigtened bananas that the EU had in store for us as well - well acording to the sun they did

  3. The chairman of Russia's Lukoil oil giant, Ravil Maganov, has died after falling from a hospital window in Moscow, reports say.

    The company confirmed his death but said only that Maganov, 67, had "passed away following a severe illness".

    Russian media said he was being treated at Moscow's Central Clinical Hospital and died of his injuries.

    Maganov is the latest of a number of high-profile business executives to die in mysterious circumstances.

    Investigating authorities said they were working at the scene to establish how he died. Tass news agency quoted sources saying he had fallen out of a sixth-floor window, adding later that he had taken his own life.

    Only in russia is a fall from an upstairs window a "severe illness"

    I surpose the guys that pushed him were described as "medicine" .

    Except that the biggest European countries have been storing gas. We don't have that capacity and buy gas as and when we need it. I think we will end up no less scared than anywhere else.

    I strongly suspect whatever they are storeing will not last long

  5. Personally I think that germany will face the most problems with gas this winter along with poland and france with all countries in europe  badly scared  this also will leave many parts of europe very much open to virtual blackmail from Russia.

    THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (the bond film) now a russian reality

    Agreed. Though there are conspiracy theory adherents who claim the whole climate change thing is a hoax, but there are some very strange people around. QAnon and Anti-Vaxxers just for starters! And don't get me going on the whole Twin Towers 'brought down by the Bush administration', or 'Paul is dead' thing...

    And not a mention of Elvis who works in a chippy near me

  7. The funny thing is many uses  of fossil fuel  (admitedly over a long time ) seem really  tame compared with things the earth does to itself yet life goes on , we might make life on earth more difficult for our offspring but I doubt we will ruin the earth just by ourselves - the big exception is nuclear war I surpose....

  8. And just imagine the total effect on the enviroment of that bloody war in the ukraine the mind boggles.

    They don't seem to have much imagination as well with a scorched earth policy (And sod the civilians), I can imagine putin saying "Well it worked against the nazis".

    And "We save loads on all those pensions with all those  pensioners we have killed"
