Thank-you so much for the welcome K.K. I only wish that the World was a better place to live in!

I have always wanted to visit Egypt and now it looks like I will be putting it off for another couple of years!! Have been considering holidaying 'domestically' as too many devastations abroad!! I know we all have to continue on in our daily lives etc and not stop these things affecting us, but how can it not?

The world needs to step back, stop being so insular and try doing what is best for EVERYONE.

It seems totally incomprehensible to me that any human being could be so calculating and evil. What kind of people are they?????

At the time of the bomb being exploded at the Hilton Hotel in Park Lane where I had been working as a temporary in the Banqueting Department for a short while, a very good friend missed the explosion by seconds! He was walking through the Lobby and helped the injured afterwards. His eye witness account was horrendous! The year must have been 1975.
It's strange how certain events gradually fade in our minds. Your post, reminded me, and Yes the world has gone mad and I'm afraid to say that I do blame our politicians for allowing so much of it. Here in the U.K. we are a soft touch and it seems to me that anyone can come here and do whatever they please. No wonder so many people are leaving 'our green and pleasant land'!!!!!!!

after reading your post Jacky, my husband and I were in Knightsbridge the day of the Harrods bombing, and had come out of the same side entrance where the bomb went off, just hours before.
Chilling to think it may have been you, fate does play a big part in life!
We always had the problem with I.R.A. but now we are living in a totally different world, and the U.K. seems to accept everyone unlike U.S.A. Canada, France etc, WHY do we take all these people in, we are a small island compared to the other countries.
I am sure, as everyone else of my age rue the day they shipped Enoch Powell off to Ireland, as the government didn't like his outspoken policies, what a shame that there are not more M.P's of his caliber around now!!
After giving my opinion may I say that I am not racist, and there is good and bad in all walks of life.

a man with foresight. Unfortunately we have a bunch of W............ what that little boy was called at school in your last post, in Government!
I do remember the Harrods bombing. I received lots of calls that Saturday as
my friends and family knew that was where I might be. Fortunately I decided
not to go that day. Thank God you came away unharmed!
Your sentiments and mine are the same. Also those of many, many people I come into contact with. Perhaps our politicians do not live in the real world.
What made me annoyed whilst away from London recently, was hearing our
Prime Minister telling everyone to go about their business and not be worried
on the tube and buses. Well, all I can say to that is, did he forgoe his chauffeured limousine or his bodyguards at home? I doubt it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Meanwhile I went to Covent Garden this morning by bus, and the streets
of London were very, very quiet. Next week I have to use the tube every morning, unfortunately, which I am not looking forward to in the least.
Thanks Elly for your post. At least I know there is another one of us
fighting the cause!
P.S. Prior to his death, I was standing at the bus stop at Harley Street, and
noticed Enoch Powell waiting there too. At first I could not place his
face and he must have noticed my looking at him. As he left I smiled
and he raised his hat in acknowledgment. It was a lovely gesture!

What a wonderful memory you must have Jacky of Enoch Powell, I watched a documentry on him and he was a very well read person with a marvelous insight to the future, all which has come to fruition.
When I watch the banter on t.v. of politicians in Parliament, I cringe, they just seem like a bunch of schoolboys in a playground........those are the ones that are AWAKE ...........
As for judges that are too old and senile............well there starts another topic!!!
I think that we should start an all female government Jacky, I am sure we could do no worse than our present lot!.......
Now here is a topic, how about all women leaders?...................or do you think
that there is a Dominatrix (I don't know whether I have spelt this right) in all of us?

That is so funny Elly
Can I be the judge with the whip ?
Who will have the handcuffs......SANDRA !!!!!!!!
JACKY.... you will look good in the long black leather boots
NOW ARE WE READY TO FORM A GOVERNMENT ?????

I had to laugh when I read your mail, we certainly would add some
colour to this sad old world, I can't quite see me in all the leather though...
I do hope that I haven't started something that is too risque on here, I might get
a warning mail from Jack and Lisa.
Love to all,

Handcuffs indeed! I thought I'd be the one with the whip!!
Posted 02 August 2005 - 05:40 PM
Perhaps Elly or Margaret or Nancy can explain the Whips in our Parliament!
That's a thought for a solid......NOOOOOOOOOO not the whip, but the Houses of Parliament. It would probably be similar to the Harrods Palace. Actually, I
really would like to see Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.......but that's

Just remember Jacky .......when you are traveling on the "tube" next week, I will
have you in my heart and Prayers!!
Wear that leather.... Honey Girl !!
