There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

The Metropolitan Police commissioner, has defended the actions of Sir Craig Mackey, her deputy, during the Westminster terror attack, insisting criticism of his failure to act or show leadership was “ignorant” and “wrong”.

Her name says it all, Caress a dick.

Under fire Met chief Sir Craig Mackey acted 'sensibly' by locking himself in his car during Westminster attack.

Well one must look after one's self, mustn't one. Just leave the rank and file to take the flack. Not to worry though, he's lost all respect from the rest of the serving police forces, I suspect he'll be taking early retirement with a big payoff soon.

Who's going to blink first concerning BREXIT, the EU or the UK.
Well, don't fret, everything has already been sorted. All this slagging off and tales of disaster is just show business from two sets of political peacock pratts. Both sides know very well the damage that can be done by either country. It's all froth and bubbles by head strong twerps.

I've just requested 3 clothing catalogues for my Mum who is 91 and can't get out much. She doesn't have a computer so can't order anything over the internet. All 3 of the companies I requested catalogues from required an email address before the request would go through, so I had to give them mine.

If Mum had an email address she would have a computer and so would not need a catalogue to be sent. DUH!

No-deal Brexit could cause 35% house price crash, Bank of England chief warns.

This is exactly what is needed, then the young will be able to afford their own homes. A house price crash will only upset those that have gone too far by getting into serious debt and thinking a house is going to be their retirement banker. Maybe BREXIT is going to be the big reality check that's been needed for years.

Idris Elba cancels Norwich club appearance.

Very wise move Elba. You most certainly don't want a visit to Norwich on your résumé.

"Bombshell poll reveals heavy union backing for second Brexit vote"

So that will be how many party members then!!! couple of dozen? Unions are finished, nobody pays any attention to them anymore, spent force, superannuated organization of old men living on dead mens glory. Another vote to reverse Brexit, so how do you think that will cancel all the bad relations between the UK and the EU. GET REAL PEOPLE.

You only have to watch the news each day to see the growing violence and anger on the UK's streets, clubs, pubs, parks, and roads ect ect. This country is in terminal decline where people think and act like animals. Prisons where the prisioners rule and riot and the guards hide in locked rooms because they are too frightened to do their jobs. Drugs everywhere, street drug killings and shootings. How far does it have to go before we finally stop these do gooders defending the scum. How far does it go before we stop listening to the Pizz poor politicians telling us all is OK.

GOM, Us older folks are more aware of the decline in todays society. In our youth we were not subjected to the pressures of modern living, over crowding, mass commercialization, pressures put on the young to get into debt in order to compete with friends and neighbours, ( I think everybody knows what I mean). The pace of living is hectic, rush here, rush there, buy this, buy that. Every living creature has a time life span, if it cannot adapt then it becomes extinct. By all the evidience of todays human behaviour we don't have long on this planet.

Does anyone have any idea how people manage to book a holiday (over the net, not at a travel agent) when they can't spell the name of the hotel they are staying at, let alone the name of the restort they are going to? How do they even apply for a passport?

Come to think of it, how do people who are only semi-literate manage to afford several holidays a year? Benefits?

Every time some government dept makes a cock up they always add in " we are learning lessons by this". Me thinks they are taking the Pee and use this well worn saying as a get out. Truth is, they will never learn, they are too thick, that's why they are public servants.
