Boys could be allowed to wear skirts at a north London private school


Really ??? Very " progressive " but London is a big shi city ( nearly spelt it wrong there ;-) ) and a lot more " advanced " than " us yoakles in the sticks " but if that happend around here they would need loads of P.C bleeding hert liberal lefty counciling coz anyone doing that would have the pee ripped right out of them .

How about this one?

Boys could be allowed to wear skirts at a north London private school if a plan for gender neutral uniforms comes in. Highgate School is considering mix-and-match outfits for pupils after head teachers said that growing numbers of children were questioning their gender.


Boys in skirts

Just what is wrong with that? Are you forgetting your own history? Here's a timely reminder boyo :-)



Edited to change image. Original proved the truth about kilt wearers :-) Just wondered what the Queen thought on seeing THAT image :-)

Only the insecure would find the subject smutty.
With your penchant for Internet research, I'm pretty sure you are aware of which image I referred to. However, in case you are not, just look for the image of a bunch of Jocks seated with the Queen dressed in blue sitting in the centre. Once you have found it, look at the soldier sitting to her right. No zooming in required. In fact very surprised it got published.

Well, what can one expect from the "smutty" English media :-)

I have no idea what image you are referring to. Also I have no interest in searching the internet to look at mens bits. I'll leave that to those that clearly are so inclined.

You should at least try to comprehend your own language. I changed the image because I felt it inappropriate to post it on a public forum. It was only after posting it, I spotted the obvious.

So to reply to your insecurities, I thought it was "unladylike" of a Brit, especially sitting next to the Queen.

Also, what are young cadets in kilts but boys in skirts.

You been smoking more than me Chris for sure you have ( the Lib dems minght wana legalise " pot " over here but they ain't been elected yet , or are you saying your on a secret " test " commite for that policy ???? ( reading between the lines as i do ;-) ) if so i will gladly help you out and volenteer my free time pro bono just from the " goodness of my icle heart mate ;-) )
Would defo " love " to get you higher than the ISS mate , you wouldn't belive the discussions you have hehe ;-)

But I did find that the Irish & Welsh get second tier Royals to the Scots.


Welsh Guards - Colonel-in-Chief the Queen, Colonel of
the Regiment, Prince Charles.


Heir to the throne a " second class " W.T.F ?????? He might love talking to his plants etc but he's still no 1 to the throne when the Queen passes away no mater what anyone thinks , it's a fact and no one can dispute it

Personaly rather have the Royal Family than a " republic " thanks and don't care what the liberal lefty sandle wearing humus eaters say about it ;-)

Just catching up on the " yoakel " news from the local rag and this is a " sleepy " Suffolk seaside town but things are getting as bad as the " big citys" definatly aint wanted or needed here or anywhere in this country or for sure and probably the same the world over
http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/it-s-not-the-sort-of-thing-you-see-around-here-aldeburgh-s-shock-at-anti-semitic-graffiti-1-5020753

Not that far away from where i live , sick bast#rds get everywhere !!

Bored teenagers with bad parenting from a local sink Council estate most likely.


No sorry Chris i know that's wrong there Aldebrugh is money area and even tho there are " housing association " estates / housing it ain't like Saxmundum , lowestoft or my local " toilet " big town Ipswich ( yea where the smack head prostitute murders happend about 10 years ago ). It's more a " retirement " by the seaside town ( bestest ever fish & chips in 1 of the pubs along the seafront , caught and landed on the beach every morning ) very " well to do " and house prices are probably on par with your area if not higher honestly . Thorpeness is just up the coast and two certain buildings one " shutdown " ;-) but the other " owned " by EDF and a 3rd is being talked about for decades .
Would expect to see that in ipswich maybe woodbridge ocasionaly but not Aldeburgh

Still waking up here only on 2nd cup of coffee but reading the local rag online just came across this story , the problem looks worse than i 4t it was . One thing i do know is it ain't wanted or needed around here :-(
Reports of anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled onto a building in the Suffolk seaside town were first made on Monday, May 15.

The graffiti, which features the Jewish Star of David with “die” written underneath, alongside an image resembling a Nazi Swastika - although incorrectly drawn - was discovered on a building, previously reported as ‘derelict’, just off Park Road in Aldeburgh.

However, owner of the property Duncan Wright, claims that his property has been targeted ‘four times since the beginning of the Easter holidays’ by vandals.

Aldebrugh is near to Snape Maltings ( sure you have heard of that place ) and Saxmundham / Leiston are close by , It's just " down " from Sizewell nuke stations bout 20 miles from mine .
It's around halfway along the A12 between Ipswich and Lowerstoft but turn off at Snape / Saxmundham .
Also has been a few " heath fires " around that way and the Fire / Police are treating them as arson attacks , ain't exactly " normal " for these parts
Honestly am surprised there ain't been a fire on Martlesham Heath yet or Rushmere Heath ( golf course ) coz people flickin their smokes out of the window etc A12 - A14 go right through them .

( bestest ever fish & chips in 1 of the pubs along the seafront , caught and landed on the beach every morning )


That's my sort of town & pub combination :-)

If the fish is still flapping when it hits the pan its too fresh, if its not flapping its been out of the ware too long.

One question for you Mark - the chips are they thick and soft or thin (by UK standards) and crunchy?
(from your description I'm guessing not "fries" as our colonial cousins would call them)

From 1st hand experiance i can honestly say they are " proper " homemade thick and fluffy but crispy on the outside chips , chipped that morning and properly fried in the pub's kitchen ( only thing missing is the newspaper to wrap em in ;-) ) , the pub's name has " left me braincell " but when i remember it ( probably 1 am ) will let you know .
Know exactly where the pub is ( near the " old " town hall on the seafront there but can't for the life of me remember it's name , totaly blanked at the mo )

edit ;
and the pub has ( or did have last time i was there ) draught and proper cask behind the bar ales ( do drink more than just Stella ain't stuck on just one thing , but don't change once started ;-) )
