No Bugsy is still able to post if he wants to. He simply goes off in a sulk and will be taking flying kicks at the pigeons in Old Market Square for the next month.

Im sure that will just fly of the shelves Bugsy.
As all you have made such a success out of all you other businesses you are bound to succeed as an author.
Maybe you'll be able to afford moving out of your run down shithole.

Unlike Bugsy, I don't live in an HMO.
I was born on a rubbish dump and survived on my wits alone until I joined the British Army at 14 years old.
Through shear hard work and heavy drinking, I rose to the rank of General, having served on 59 operational tours.
I'm now the CEO of a top FTSE 100 company and own several houses.
My wife is a 22 year old bisexual lingerie model.

Pretty standard stuff for most posters here really.
Stand easy Fellas.

Getting back to the meat and 2 veg, I went to a Birthday Party tonight, first we saw a film, Some like it hot then we had a scrumptious buffet and cake. I did ask about showing the film Michael Colins, Turncoat, Traitor to the Orish and slotted for his problems. But our host said ‘Michael Who’.

Surely you being far to sensitive to mention your V.C. and double bar as well as your G.C. and single bar. I know the shame of only 1 bar for the G.C. I’m not sure I want to shout that from the rooftops either.

It looks like my 'satire' was a bit too close to home for a few posters on here..!

Still, if the cap fits..?
 
All this talk of local language use reminds me of the first time I ordered my meal in Urdu.

The looks of sheer astonishment! There again, it was an Italian restaurant...*

Seriously, though, I have made friends and had doors opened by picking up a little of the languages of people at work. My few words of Urdu amongst them.

*Save your button fingers, I know it's old.
 
, the British were favoured above the yanks, by the simple expedient of trying to order, and converse in Italian, conversely the yanks got the basic service, no frills,
I encountered American Tourists in Italy
I was about ready to slap the arrogant obnoxious ignorant oiks upside the head - The waiter mustve been ******* their glasses
 
Poor people generally breed like rabbits and are incapable of long term planning or feeding the numerous mouths which spring forth from their overactive loins. This is a direct result of their own ignorance and stupidity and it still holds true today.

So Roman Catholic doctrines regarding sex and birth control had nothing to do with it?

That too.

They should have gone with the Catholic school girls' prayer.

Oh Virgin Mary we believe
Without sin you did conceive.
Teach us then, while still believing
How to sin without conceiving.
Amen.

The catholic doctrines account for some of it, across the world, basic grinding poverty, the mud hut variety, and corrupt governments, war and famine play their part. Have you noticed the amount of Adds on TV that originate in far off lands, all involving kids, and their mum's, where pray, is dad?

Poverty takes many forms, here in the UK your considered poor, if you do not have at least 80% of the basic wage to survive, which is about £25K. We had 6 kids, i wasn't earning a lot, we managed, went without for many years, no holidays, no car, no big TV, or SKY service, and when first married, no washing machine, fridge, freezer, tumble dryer, dish washer, or landline phone. all this was before mobiles were invented. This put me on the poor list, by the standards of the day, , but I didn't consider myself poor, as I had a roof over my head, a job, and could pay the bills, and the kids didn't starve.

Poor is relative, My income is just fractionally above that which would allow me to claim pensions benefit, But by the standards of today, if i was working, that amount would class me as poor.

The days of grinding poverty that my father (93) had to endure in the mid 20's in the dockland area of London's east end are long gone, bare footed scruffy half starved waifs no longer exist in the UK, and if they do, its caused by parental abuse and cruelty, and not financial circumstance.

The Poor do exist, Fact, and they always will, and all the legislation, laws, and good will by men and women of high moral compass working on their behalf will never alleviate it. Church state and class divide, the three reasons it will never vanish.
