And Trumps the other day regarding Turkeys incursion into Northern Syria, "They, (the Kurds) didn't help us in Normandy".

What an absolute moron!

There is an ISIS army in captivity, held by the Kurds waiting for escape.

I'll explain this ( in person ) one day if anyone's interested but for now

Valentine Dyall (The man in Black) - "Tames bleedin' tigers - this game"

What was to be a life enhancing experience was a disaster. . . . :laugh5:

Sounds like a crossword clue David..... Do tell.

I had to smile yesterday when I saw a LibDem MP being asked a question about why Corbyn was anathema to her party. After trotting out the usual Marxist accusations she added "Mind you, he does have an allotment!"

Actually it was later than it should have been, and I misquoted.

It was really Jeffrey Bernard's quote - the Spectator columnist he who was often 'unwell'.

Valentine Dyall was asked at his bankruptcy hearing - to what he ascribed his present condition, to which he replied "two mile handicap hurdles races Milord".

You'll get my drift. The detail is to painful at the moment, but I'll survive.

I think there's a bit of the 'when I get old I shall wear purple' syndrome at play. :laugh5:

You've lost big time on the `osses, David? I hope not so much that you're on bread and water? :smile:

No - didn't have a penny piece on, but there are other ways to be disappointed in the game.

Oh yes. . . .

It'll be in my memoirs - maybe. :laugh5:

Some friends of mine had a part share in a race horse. The usual outgoings on stable fees and training etc: Occasionally they would get a notification it was going to run in such and such a race then at the last minute it would be pulled out. Now a two year old they were told the horse was lame and would never make the grade. They, the stables, would try to find a buyer. It was sold to an adjacent stable at some knock down price. The suspicion was that it was a big con and they had just paid for the rearing for someone else to make the profit. That's life I suppose.

John Le Carre, on `Today' this morning, referred to Donald Trump's `extraordinary gospel'. I think he was choosing his words carefully, but it seems a good expression!

I heard that interview and have referred to it in Politics Corner Tiz. He made a lot of sense, I have ordered the book to follow on after Bryson.
David, it was ever thus! Here's a bit from me memoirs.

"I had always known that there was a close bond between my father and Tommy O’Connell our family doctor. It turned out that father and Tommy had met at the White City and eventually bought a greyhound and put it into training at a professional kennels. The dog did well enough but never got to the point where it was paying its way and the trainer advised them to sell it. As soon as it was sold it started winning every race it entered under the same trainer. The difference was that these were hurdle races. The trainer knew it was good over hurdles but never let on and so father and Tommy were taken to the cleaners!"

"Lewis Hamilton says vegan diet 'only way to save our planet"
The F1 star says a flourishing meat and dairy industry leads to "deforestation, animal cruelty" and "our seas decaying".


Flying cars, and hundreds of team members around the world, once a fortnight, then driving those super high powered cars round in circles is OK though? :laugh5:

He's young and impressionable so I suppose he can be excused. But he should stick to being a driver.

Well - in a relative sort of way. :smile:
I find he's 34 years old, and we have the same birthday. :smile:
