    I read that somewhere. Rumour has it that the chairman was in financial difficulties and several of his properties went up in flames mysteriously.

    We had a coalition in the war you know, Partys didnt matter. After the war the peeps said feck you Churchill, and voted in a Labour Govt. They invented the NHS, and a post war building boom. Many Paddies were imported during this period to lay bricks........ Then the 60's turned up, architects discovered concrete and built tower blocks to replace slums in our inner cities, except Scotland of course who stubbornly stuck with their tenements........ Then the 70's turned up. I voted for the first time, Europe? Yes please I said. Then it was the 80's, Maggie turned up, every man should own his own house, even council tennants with a brain, thank you Maggie! Since then? Nowt to speak of...... Did the recent coalition do any good? Time will tell. Will HS2 go ahead? I sincerely hope not, if only for the Brummies sake. Calais to Birmingham in 3 hours.

    That daylight savings time is a feckin joke. Things should just be left natural like. It would save on energy costs if it was just left alone.

    On this day... Franklin expedition. I'm sure I saw a documentary where Eskimos, (Inuits), had tales handed down from their ancestors of cannibalism in the expedition near the final days...
