General Discussion / Our Noble Lords
« Last post by digitalis on Today at 09:26:09 AM »

I was very impressed at our noble Lords getting to their feet to applaud Lady Tessa Jowell t'other day. TJ was disclosing and promulgating more money for brain cancer research. I think all were moved to applause with several nobles disclosing their own magnanimity. One(I cant remember which)got up to say he had had some biopsy and had taken it upon himself to allow this part of himself to go forward to be given to research. Bravery indeed! Taking example I decided to donate my now unwanted hair clippings at my barbers,at which he thanked me. I now have plans to donate my toenail clippings for research. Alas,false modesty prevents me making my bravery known at the House of Fraud(sorry,Lords)
T'other day I read Quentin Letts take on the House of Fraud(Lords)wherein our betters lambasted and lampooned those plebs who chose to vote Brexit. Great men indeed!  And with winks and nods and mirth did they not make us all know it!


And we're s'posed to revile and sneer and find funny other 'enemy' states????

I notice in today's paper that this guy who was refused entry had been out of the country for 3 years repairing his home in the Caribbean (maximum allowed 2).  His relatives are complaining that they did not know this, or that he could be refused NHS treatment.  When we researched what became our holiday home in Spain we were left with no doubt that staying out of the country for more than 6 months would mean that we would be denied treatment by the NHS in the UK.  Many though, don't bother to do the research, or don't care because in the past it has been ignored by the NHS.  I see Momentum is making a great play of the situation appealing to the yonger element who get all their news from facebooke etc.
