    If you wish to have a better understanding of Piers Morgan Phone enter “Piers Morgan fake abuse photos” into google and have a read how this now, apparent ‘expert’ and our resident troll’s latest ‘go to’ source of truth caused the endangerment of our Armed Forces that he claims his own offspring are now amongst its own elite hierarchy. The questions raised over testing numbers was eloquently explained in the U.K. Government’s daily briefing on May 1st, not, I hasten to add by a Politician (that most of us On here would not believe anyway) but by an Independent Scientist. The ONS decided and instructed the govt. how they wished the data on daily test numbers to be reported and the govt. complied. The watchdog of the ONS later decided they did not agree the data should be recorded in the same way, AFTER the figures were released! This of course has to mean that the govt. are ‘lying’ to thick shites like Morgan and, as you say, to boost his ratings he uses the rumour, speculation and innuendo to purchase troll food that is liberally spread around bridges where trolls were once confined to.

    Cats are better than dogs ,if you forget to feed them they go to the other person who thinks its their cat lol There was an interesting program where they tagged all the cats in a village then showed their wanderings! A few kept around their garden but some had regular rounds where they visited several houses a day ,the owners thought the cat was theres but the cat had different ideas and owned several humans

    A hankering is a strong desire for something. If you have a hankering for pizza, you really want some pizza. This is a folksy, informal word that means about the same thing as yearning. To reply to a “hankering” either positively supporting your wishes or negatively disapproving of the yearning. A cowboy is a man with guts and a horse. Don't squat with your spurs on. Don't let your yearnings get ahead of your earnings. Don't dig for water under the outhouse. Don't go in if you don't know the way out. Don't mess with something that ain't bothering you. Never drive black cattle in the dark. Always drink upstream from the1 herd. An onion can make people cry; but, there's never been a vegetable that can make people laugh. Any cowboy can carry a tune. The trouble comes when he tries to unload it. Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was. Don't worry about bitin' off more'n you can chew; your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'n you think. Generally, you ain't learnin' nothing when your mouth's a-jawin'. If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there with ya. I took to the life of a cowboy like a horse takes to oats. If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging. It's better to keep your mouth shut and look stupid than open it and prove it. If it doesn't seem to be worth the effort it probably isn't. Just 'cause trouble comes visiting doesn't mean you have to offer it a place to sit down. Lettin' the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back. Nature gave us all something to fall back on, and sooner or later we all land flat on it. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back into your pocket The only good reason to ride a bull is to meet a nurse. Treat a woman like a racehorse, and she'll never be a nag. There' are two theories to arguin' with a woman. Neither one works.

    I had a nice day on a couple of club still waters yesterday. I met up with Mike on the first water, he was already set up and fishing. He'd been fishing for a couple of hours and hadn't had any sign of a bite. As we stood chatting we saw three grass snakes swimming about right under our feet! The water was choked with weeds and everytime Mike wound his set up back in it was covered in slimey green algea/weed. Even if he had managed to hook a fish, retrieving it through all the flotsum and jetsume which was floating on the surface and the weed below would have been very tricky! Because of the bleak out look we decided to go elsewhere and so he wrapped up and we set off to another similar water some 30 miles away. It turned out to be a wise move and we both had some nice carp which gave some decent little battles before they were netted. Weatherwise it was strange as when I set out from the home it was very cloudy and dull and there was even a little drizzle, but by the time I had reached the first venue it was blazing sun and despite wearing a brimmed hat my face now resembles a freshly peeled beatrute! Sorry, but unfortunately I forgot to take any pic's :(.

    The thing that has stuck in my mind is how my brothers and I panicked after he swallowed them, we thought they would start to eat him from the inside out and rushed back to tell mum.

    The border hasnt been controlled properly for 500 years and henry 8th trying to keep the frogs out . Our border has so many holes its harder to walk out your front door and sovereignty changing wont stop that. The fact is the french want rid of this scum so will be doing everything they can to get look the other way until the problem goes away . The criminals flocking here know perfectly well once they get a foot on shore (or now an inch over the border in the channel) the stupid governments of this country will welcome them with open arms and the chances of getting sent back tiny and even then they just try again until they are successful ,like somali pirates boats riddled with bullets washing up on the shores of france may make them think again but i rather think they will patch up the holes knowing theres only a couple of boats with guns going to stop them .Unfortunately when criminals see that can get away with it they just keep doing it Perhaps if we send a few hundred to south georgia to build a runway then send all the rest there when its built they could think twice yes they will get on "british" soil but its not going to be the cushy life they expect! If OZ can do it i am sure we can but with less niceties i hope ,they can go from living in tents in france to living in tents down there i wonder what they would prefer?

    Very pretty but can they climb the curtains? This is the nearest to a pet in our lives now and it's not even ours, he'd sqish your puppies lol Comes when hes called aswell but not mastered bringing back sticks yet! The black one turned into 800kg of food! He became a very big boy! And killed the female near its baby the next year by standing on it we think or it just didnt like it taking away the attention, who knows cows are strange

    I often like to quote people from history to show that the world does not change or evolve as it should. In this case that our resident troll is currently focussing on, I think the best one of the moment is a simple one “It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them” is the best, if clod does not have the intellect to understand that he is referring to two separate and distinctive sets of figures (total value of ‘health tourism’ against estimated cost of allowing a healthcare/NHS exemption) then that is his problem and not ours. He can carry on posting links to newspaper and obscure internet sites and repeat those same random ramblings without realising or even, in the full knowledge that most of us do not accept or contribute to his click bait links. Got my ‘Whitby Scampi” delivered today, going in the fryer tomorrow, have to see what it’s like but as long as it actually is whole tail Dublin Prawns (and yes, I do actually understand that they do NOT live, breed or whatever near Whitby but as always I support U.K. businesses). Interesting Clip on BBC News yesterday, a langoustine fisherman in Scotland now selling his catch to local customers! fancy that, who would have thought there is a market out there for people who wish to adapt. Also interesting is Tiggers clip on people smugglers, how is Nigel Farage able to charter a fishing boat to go out into the Channel? presumably they are able to stand two meters apart, CLOD can’t do that of course, he can’t go back to work and adapt to the rules, he can only sit on social media and copy paste things that he thinks support his view, whilst, (presumably) claiming a handout that the rest of us have to pay in the future.

    BIG Cod, AS IS WITH ALL "OPINION" commentators PIERS has an agenda (ratings). Let me give you an example re: "NHS WORKERS WHO SAVED LIVES" According to NHS labour unions that is pure camel dung. There was no benefit and considerable cost having non English or poor English speaking healthcare workers on stand-by. "Coronavirus: Reopening NHS services must be safe, unions say". THEY, the unions, need support not critics. It was at labour's suggestion BORIS made the remark You have to pick or look two faced - - - follow labour - or - - - - - follow the fragmented world of radical news media and YOU select only the comments you choose to agree with - - - -in or out of context.

    All, Tigger, sounds to me like Chesters1 fits into a category we often find in the US. Some over here will tell you there are only two kinds of snakes, poisonous snakes and dead snakes. Snakes were never a problem for me except as mentioned, no one likes being startled by nature. Phone

    I regularly used to use my tiny Abu Record 2100 multiplier together with a split cane Avon rod on the river Kennet fishing for Chub a back in the late 70s and I also tried using this tiny multiplier for long Trotting after reading Dave Stuart’s book on Roach (from the Osprey Angling library of books) where he says he occasionally used this multiplier for trotting for Roach just for fun; and it was good at both trotting and for casting a light link leger. NB: Above is a picture of my closed face reel and small multiplier from one of my articles on long trotting with a Centrepin that I wrote several years ago which is why it has the large text below it. I do quite a lot of long trotting and quite a lot of trundling amongst beds of steamer weed and close in along the near and the far banks using a Centrepin reel catching Barbel Chub Roach and Dace and also the very occasional Carp, and using my fixed spool reel with a small link leger once the light starts to fade. I also occasionally use my Abu 506 closed face reel if I’m trotting for Chub, Roach and Dace on a gusty day although I wouldn’t choose to use this small Abu 506 closed face reel for larger fish like Barbel.

    That's good to hear Martin. I was beginning to wonder if they had stopped doing it. The longest I had to wait before recieving the monies was about 2 months. John
