The media and politics

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 16:01:34 +0100

I've been thinking about this for a while, first they came for Farage, but I wasn't UKIP so I didn't care....

We see it now with Corbyn, it's really bugging me now, who do these people think they are?

I listen to a lot of talk radio, different stations yet all seem to sing from the same hymn sheet.
If someone dares to try and put Putin's position across they are closed down, if anyone tries to give examples of Western hypocrisy they are shut down.

Trump, no matter what you think of him, that election is being decided by the media.

I have been using fresh Turmeric root (thanks to Charlie's wife- green shop Blackfriars rd, where I'm now known as ....get this...Turmeric man!) and ginger and cinnamon sticks, powder's fine though, every vid I've watched, they use powder. I have to say though, there's powder and there's powder, you want less yellow and more golden. I got some powder from the local shop and it was bright yellow, got some organic stuff from Borough market and it's a different, more golden, colour. When dealing with the fresh root, one end is really orangey, the other bright yellow, when you buy the powder, you are getting one or the other.

God I need a life.

[quote Jan the old one]Anti immflamatory sounds good, will try this Boroughonian..thank you.[/quote]

The black pepper and some kind of fat are essential, I use coconut oil, for the body to absorb this Curcumin stuff. You might want to look into the capsules you can buy, you get a much bigger dosage than you would be able to eat. Apparently, they are a very good anti inflammatory.

As an aside, I was in Baldwins getting my Cinnamon sticks, and there was a lady having some kind of appointment with a herbalist, like a Drs appointment, and she, the herbalist, had a Dr look about her. All very interesting.

Sadiq is a dope, telling Londoners they should integrate with their neighbours...he says that we should diversify. Where I lived till last week there lived people from all over the world we all got on. Professional people..we got on...hard up people ..we got on. He seems to be intent on making various residents get the hump!

Hello everyone.. I have recently returned to the UK after almost 50 years of living in Australia and New Zealand. I was born in Guys Hospital and went to Alma School and then Deptford Park. It's good to be home. I currently live in West Sussex but have been back to Bermondsey a few times in the last few months. Surprised at how much still looks the same in some ways but different in others. Most notably Storks Rd being chopped in half. The half where my Grandparents lived gone altogether. The old Concorde pub is now apartments and the biscuit factory has gone.
Does anyone on this site recall a small electrical repair shop near the Russell Scott buildings called Soapy Jacks? Jack Fersht was the owner.

Hello everyone,
I've been lurking this forum for quite some time now and now I've finally decided that I will start posting something. I hope that it will be fun. :)


mayor of London

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 09:18:34 +0100

SK is once more pontificating about the national labour party and appearing to lay into Jeremy Corbyn.. So much for his vacuous speeches pre and post his election as mayor then. Means nothing does it. He is on probation himself and he confuse the privilege bestowed by his office with interfering in the national leadership issue

He should settle down and show London what a wonderful person he is in his eyes obviously at least

Skills should and must refrain as we can all see that he wants to return new labour people asap

JC has been elected on a massive party vote whatever careerist MPs including Hilary Benn etc might opine.

Hi edd54,
Seems interesting. Not sure you can leave a review on Amazon if you do not buy it from it though...

On Eurostar you can collect points and I manage to get the odfd free return from time to time (although they have now reduced the points you earn, so it's getting harder). Otherwise, there is still Interail, a cheap way to go around Europe, they even have prices for seniors ...

I can do this, I write lots of reviews and I'm the kind of person who tries to say at least one nice thing even when it's rubbish (because nothing is all good or all bad, even the book I read where the writer kept saying drug instead of drag....she drugged herself up the beach. I have no tolerance for 'of' instead of 'have' though).

nice to hear you are well, bike ride sounds good - as long as it is around my lovely SE1, can someome please move this to chatter

Re: What has happened to Zoe

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 15:49:24 +0100

I want to say that reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated, but I'm a bit too superstitious. Of course James would have reported on it, nothing goes in SE1 that he doesn't know about!

I'm still here, just been busy. Are you missing my pearls of wisdom or just want to take me up on that bike ride offer? We should have had an SE1 contingent to prudential ride London.

Anyway, this should be in the chatter section. I think I'm important but I'm pretty sure I'm not newsworthy.....

Hi everyone, I am Sandra & at present living in Colchester. I was born at no 54 Falmouth road se1 in the 60's.
I would like to know if anyone has any pictures of the houses in Falmouth road, I remember that ours backed onto Dickens square.
Been through all family albums but with not much success, even looked through the archives but up to now haven't had much luck. Would be grateful of any help.
Many thanks
By the way, great site

How careless of Kinnock to admit to electoral fraud in front of a passing political opponent.

Re: Hilary Benn

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:57:18 +0100

Also from memory so called electoral college was right-wing union Kinnock set-up whereas previously Tony almost won against Healey. :- I was at that conference and overheard Kinnock say to Jim Callaghan and a small group "don't worry it's in the bag for Dennis! " some skullduggery was afoot.. what a traitor to the Labour cause and movement. And still it persists today with the new media creation.. seen on Sky tv this morning Owen Smith!

Re: Hilary Benn

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:21:16 +0100

Kinnock scored because pretended to be a friends of disadvantaged etc but could not practically nor did he have serous intention he climbed the greasy pole and ladder then kicked it away Blair of course never mentioned the word socialism and courted by the establishment tho now possibly suffering to a degree what goes around comes around
