I believe rags and bones were collected for the Workhouse. Bones being a component of glue and rags used in paper making, the inmates had to grind  the bones and tear the rags. Before my time.

Ronyork, I can tell, just like me, your blood boils when you see the continuing  inaction by government in not only preventing these scrounging scum from entering our country, but doing sod all about shipping them back straight away if they manage to get here, with equally scum greedy lawyers, doing all they can to thwart for as long as possible any attempt to deport them, by representing them purely to line their own brimming  pockets.

The media are already gulling the gullible by downplaying the incident & calling the pirates stowaways.

Just as illegal immigrants are called immigrants who enter the UK by unauthorised means.

Anything to stop those involved in the incident being called what they are, pirates.

Alas Ronyork,people have money to make.

A new dawn has broken.

I heard there were gaggles of lawyers down at the quay at Portsmouth all a-waving their firms credentials to support our pirates applications(of which there will be many)for asylum. Judges,solicitors,orhter legal reps...all there waving hello to our new arrivals cos there's plenty of gold to be made.Hear! Sssshhh...Listen. Yes,a letter written to the Guardian today a letter a-crying,a shouting for their firms appeals to your tax payers expense.

We must not forget the shipping company too! When you know the people were on board your tanker(20 miles out?) The last thing you want to do is turn tail and sail back to Liberia or Nigeria: too costly,too time consuming. You know in advance dear olde Blighty will accommodate. Waste no time,hurry-speed to our lawyered land. Have not Penally will take them? Advanced communication will ensure Bully-beef will be ready for 'em all tonite with roast spuds and pudding.

Once we have got this lot of migrants in this way,expect more.

Picture our legal friends whose salaries all depend on the laws upheld by our honorable Lords and MPs. Next think of their poor little off-spring doing without mum and daddies wads of cash. Terrible! Tearful. It must not be allowed. Bring 'em in to Penally. Or make it a 5 star hotel they stay at. Let the oiks have 'em.

Wotta sad,sick joke.

Mike I am pretty much in the same boat as you, I live on my own after losing my Wife Yvonne almost two years ago. But not going to be sad about living I will leave that to the thousands of people losing their homes and jobs. They have reason to be unhappy we don't. There are thousands of elderly people suffering with ill heath would love to change places with us.

Today as normal my little dog Roxy decided it was time for me to get up before dawn. No use ignoring her she a very bossy. But still I can be thankful she had her walk before the rain arrived. I am now relaxing with a cup of tea. For the rest of the day nothing planned although if Yvonne was still around I would be cleaning the windows or some thing.
