Oldrightie and why we voted leave and how love of democracy won.
Not being on facebook or for that matter twitter or any of that ilk I am not able to run the vid and comment, however having given my excuse for going off topic I would like to say the following. First, no one will ever know how many people were in the Grenfell building when the fire started, that's a fact.Listening to the radio just now, think it was question time or some such, it seems like the Grenfell survivors or those manipulating them want to choose or have some say in who should head the inquiry.Now there's all sorts of numbers and statistics being thrown about the media, one I've not seen but should be easily available is the number of survivors.The second statistic, one that I very much doubt is available, is the percentage of the survivors who are bona fide British subjects...................
.............. Now when you've all finished clutching at your pearls, that is a valid question. The inquiry will no doubt end up making recommendations that will result in changes of British law. Therefore the choice of who is in charge of it should only be left up to British subjects.

Thanks for that, she is 100% correct. In a previous post I referred to the U.S. and its constitution which is supreme above all other law (in a perfect world it would be anyway). Although the U.S. is a country of immigrants their adherence to the constitution prevents takeovers by single groups, I think that's why they set such store by upholding it. Imagine a future Britain with a government made up solely of the likes of that London mayor, because that's what the future is going to be unless there is a radical change.
Please note, Old Ratty, when referring to 'her racial beauty', her dark eyes and dark hair roots. Yes, she is beautiful for all that!
Anonymouse, glad we agree. As for hair colour, irrelevant to facial characteristics and majority DNA. I'll add a second picture.
Sorry but you have failed to make your point again - the second lady is contemporary.
If sardonic allusions and tongue in cheek are inadmissable, mea culpa.
Emendatio: Snide racism and smugness.
Snide, "mocking in an indirect way?". Ergo mine was not indirect, your comments are. As for "racism", a politically correct jibe and about as smug as it's use gets. The resort of the weaponised ignorant.After weeks of preparation to manage an excellent donation to charity day, my less young persona does get tired from time to time, so my exchanges, momentarily, lack my usual venom and ire for those so superior to myself. Anonymouse fits well as a handle for a coward. How about a more face to face discussion on your qualifications? I assume you have a blogger site I can visit?
I have no blog - I am indeed a coward and would not enjoy the hatred from complete strangers which the Internet allows. Your blog has an uncomfortable fascination for me since some years ago you repeated totally unfounded allegations about a close family member in a comment to the Evening Standard. That person is now dead, after a life filled with tragedy, (you lost a daughter, this person lost two and a son suffers a life-threatening condition) and yet they did many charitable actions without broadcasting them.I need to wean myself off such negative sites as they leave me feeling hopeless and depressed. So I will try not to visit again.
I suspect you are no coward by the admittance of such a flaw. My "negativity" only reflects the state of our modern world. It does not nor ever was a characteristic of my innermost feelings for those who truly are decent people but are so rarely lauded.I wish you well and if you can find something here, for whatever purpose, you are welcome.
