Re: Short call to arms - vote for Boris Johnson

Indeed. I have long thought that pensioners ought to pay NI on income over a threshold of say £10k, perhaps at a reduced rate of 5%, for the reasons described above. Sticking plaster again! Just be honest and roll the two taxes into one. And aim to shift it away from productive activity and onto de...

Re: Short call to arms - vote for Boris Johnson

NI is only payable on hard-earned income. Now what demographic is particularly overrepresented in Boris's prospective leadership-last-two electorate? Just in case the younger sector are unaware - we pensioners do not pay NI - and we are probably the largest consumer of its largesse. So the poor you...

Re: Balls.

Love Pembrokeshire, especially when they're speaking Welsh and taking the proverbial out of English speakers in the pub. The look on their faces when I tell them exactly what they ought to do with their rude comments always makes me laugh. :D The area is lovely though, shame about some of the peopl...

Re: Balls.

The name "Little England beyond Wales" really does describe South Pembrokeshire. Weather is better than most of Wales too!

Re: Glue for CD case

Might be easier to go to a charity shop and buy a cheap pair of CDs in a similar case and swap out the printed items (and the CDs of course!)

Re: Which Greek Island in June ....

Most Greek islands are small, and while the smaller islands may have a share of of the characteristics you describe, you might find them a bit limiting. I would guess you are not a beach person, the reason many people visit the islands. Each island has its own characteristics, islands close together...

I originally voted for rows, but it has occurred to me that:

Block 1 Block 2
