Re: Is there anything, that the pathetic British will not put up with?

I'm not convinced he is 'following closely'........ I don't know, maybe he has told his office manager to request the information. The information will then come into his office, followed regularly and closely by the MP. If someone then asks a question he can ask his OM and they will then kick it u...

Re: CSG21

G CPTN, I get that, I guess 21 is indeed the year in the same way out exercises were number by year, or Deutschland 83 etc.

Sort of suggests a plan for CSG 23 (22 heaven forbid).

Don't you just love Private Number or Number Withheld. Our hospital and surgery use these. I have to punch myself not to answer F*** O** and answer just "Yes?" .

Re: A Nation of supine, rule enslaved, bedwetting wankers.

That White Rose letter is a classic for file 13. I lost it in paragraph 2 and again in paragraph 3, thereafter subsequent pages were a waste of paper or electrons. Punctuation is not rationed and is indeed free, or the odd electron. At the least more commas and better some colons, semi colons and ta...

I can attest to the latter, well LED any way, not being particularly desirable.

No doubt whatsoever that the RN will observe the 12 mile limit. The question is what constitues the 12 mile limit. I believe the Americans claimed the Barrents Sea was in international waters until they lost an RB47.

All of those 'quotes' were genuine Max Miller that I remember from the late 1940s/early 1950s.
It was one of Robin Hood's band meeting Maid Marion on a bridge when I was at school in late 50s.

ExA, my old man, despite a life in the Merchant Navy never learnt the 'new' NATO alphabet. His ID for the bookies was B R O M for Mother..... I remember some of the wartime alphabet that came with the aircraft or ship models - Able, Baker, Love and that was replaced not long before I joined with the...

Re: Rant of the Day v2.

om, they certainly go in patterns. Last year, assuming my mobile number was 077 76 543 123 I was getting spam calls from 077 76 543 nnn. As the call numbers mounted I was counting down from 997 to see how many. I think I got down to 990 yet to be used. A dental nurse had noticed the same number call...

UP, invalid comparison between Oman and Syria. One was legal and covert, the other illegal and overt. After all, we changed the rules.

Re: Coronabollocks..

I think many people know they are unwell but are frightened of going to a doctor and having it confirmed.

If I don't look it isn't true.
