<quoted text> Most of us would never have had a chance of being Prime Minister after a seriouis nasty mess up like that but Winston did. Why? Really? I think it's because he came from a wealthy privileged background and so was given many chances. I bet that there were many other Britishmen that could have done a far superior job but simply didn't get a look in because the weren't from the right family. This doesn't only happen in England, it happens all over the world. Meritocracy as oppossed to family ties would have meant less allies would have died and the war still won. Just sayin'
Inglis’ joy was short-lived. Between 12 am and 1 am on September 21, a fire broke out in buildings on Whitehall Street and burned through the night. Conditions were conductive to fire: the city was dry and a brisk southeasterly wind blew. Between 1000 and 1500 houses burned to the ground. A newspaper reported: Here we go, information that you could have found out for yourself if you had been bothered....

"The Fire that the British started…swept away all the Buildings between Broad Street and the North-River, almost as high as the City-Hall; and from thence, all the houses between Broadway and the North-River, as far as King’s College…Long before the main Fire reached Trinity Church, that large, ancient and venerable Edifice was in Flames, which baffled every Effort to suppress them. The Steeple, which was 140 feet high, the upper Part of Wood…resembled a vast Pyramid of Fire…Several Women and Children perished in the Fire, their Shrieks, joined to the roaring of the Flames, the Crash of falling Houses…formed a scene of Horror beyond Description. Besides Trinity Church, the Rector’s House, the Charity

And if you ask for more proof I will tell you to do your own research in a not so diplomatic way

Churchill was an excellent war leader.His speech writer was top draw but he was a disasterous naval planner.He was also a bigoted upper class twit who thought the lower classes should know their place and a useless peacetime PM.Still Britain would probably have capitulated under another leader and gets credit for that.

I vote Tory like my folks because we are well off. Why should I vote for poverty under Labour?
Labour wants everybody to be poor and receive welfare. That's how they get voters, by inventing new welfare schemes all the time, and leaving a trail of debts behind.
The present economic situation was created by Blair and Brown, and hopefully Cameron and Osborne will put the country back on its feet, and attack the scroungers.
This post is not even worth replying to, but I will....do you knot realise just how ridiculous your post sounds?

So much for a fair Tory government eh, IDS has failed to claw back the revenues of heating allowances, bus passes and other things given to some rich pensioners,instead saying it is only 'voluntary' to pay back the money funded by is the taxpayer.

Your post is simply full of bias and ridiculous assumptions as well as your view of many unemployed people in that situation through no fault of their own, possibly put out of work in the public sector by this coalition in office.

That is what happens when we have a RW dictating government who are against workers rights,unions and a living wage.

I doubt many of these unemployed folk will thank you for labelling them scroungers.

You really do seem to be sat firmly on that hateful, spiteful and nasty bandwagon who has issues with unemployed folk because his parents channeled him like that and because RW society and mentality tells him he must be seen to be saying the same things as them.

Your no better than a racist fella and you really should pull your head out of the sand if you think this government is performing well.

Osborne can't stay within his own budget.

What can you say about a woman who tried to defend the war criminal General Pinochet.She decimated working class communities in the U.K.I grew up during that cows reign of unemployment,misery and the opening up of all utilities such as heating and electricity generation,which in my opinion along with water and transportation (public )should be run at no profit at cost price for the benefit of all.I am no communist but Thatcher went too far too fast and wrecked a lot of peoples lifes in the process.As for the laughable argument about promoting womens rights she didn't brook any other women having any power in her government.If the Labour party had been in power she wouldn't have got a £10 million send off ,that really sticks in the throat.She was a hard hearted cow wake up
Guess that explains why there are celibration parties all over the UK because of her death. Unfortunatley there are many azzhole leaders like that around the globe. They get into power and get nasty. Still, England is a beautiful country full of cool and smart people. She is history

that's the best you can come up with?

which film did you get that from?

i'm not sure if that is a reply to the Mel Gibson question,as you have posted it in reply to one of your own posts.

you have claimed that during the American revolution British troops locked women and children in a church and then burnt the church to the ground,that rambling shit you have posted is nothing like your previous wild claims!

in fact no such incident took place in history,it would appear the piss head Mel Gibson provides your historical education,and you accept his fantasy as fact.

just admit it,you took a scene from the "Patriot" and used it to bash the English.

You do realise this coalition are RW controlled, what with a conservative PM and a conservative chancellor?....

Nick Clegg is only in his position as deputy PM through his bed sharing with the Tories as both parties as well as Labour failed to get to the magic 326 number of seats required to win the election.
And please remember
Nobody voted for this government by the way.

Its none of your business di-khead, where a user is posting from or were they originate from, it is an anonymous forum.
Anyway, even if 'Puddle' did tell you were he was from, you would then probably accuse him of lying!

Nosiness, is probably a trait of Narcissism of which I am convinced that the medical world would be highly interested in knowing about.
Next time you are sharing with your head doctor, do not be holding back, let him know that you are, not only an evil lying racist, self-righteous, sarcastic know it all, di-khead, but that you are also, a nosey cnut!

You could be helping others that have the same mental disorder condition as yourself.
Think of the satisfaction that you can receive, simply because it is the first time in your entire life, you may have helped others!

I am wrong. The English have been perfect gentlemen in Ireland. What is the matter with the Irish? I mean if Germany had invaded England, the English would say "Well Done!, Now let's be part of a United Germany" What is wrong with those crazy Irish?
