Re: Boris Force One?

Cant stand it and I believe the flag is the wrong way up from what I have read. It’s correct when viewed from aircraft left, but wrong when viewed from aircraft right. Look at both sides of the tail on the most famous presidential aircraft Airforce One. You’ve seen it a million times. Look at the f...

Re: Culture Wars

A white American police officer , who had 18 complaints on his career, killed a black American who has armed robbery amongst his convictions. Both worked as doormen at a club at the same time, but apparently didn’t know each other. Despite working overlapping shifts at the same time. Now the doormen...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Or is the reasoning that those stores that opened last week would prefer the current restrictions, as they’ve had some signs made that would be wrong if things changed, rather than potentially having more people in their stores ? EDIT - it’s my experience of retail that they will spend £ thousands ,...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

I think everyone in retail and hospitality has bigger problems than worrying that their signs that currently say “keep 2m apart” should now say “keep 1m apart”. I would have thought they would be happier they can now fit twice as many people into their sales space , rather than a few signs are a bit...

And all just a week after re-opening the shops, that all had to have clear signage on the 2m separation etc. How much have they just made companies waste on preparing all that stuff for 7 days worth of use?

What's with the UNITED KINGDOM lettering or is that just artistic licence? apart from Air Force One I don't think any official VIP planes in the world have other than that country's airforce as identification.

3rd RAF Poseidon’s named after WW2 ace.

From U.K. defence journal. Poseidon MRA1 tail number ZP803 is currently being completed in the USA and sports the name ‘Terence Bulloch DSO* DFC* RAF’ in recognition of the pilot who made the greatest number of attacks against submarines in the Battle of the Atlantic. https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk...

The Nest, which I'm two episodes into. Pretty far fetched, but if you suspend reality entirely, good none the less.

Also In My Skin from BBC3, which wasn't exactly an easy watch but was excellent.
+1 for In My Skin.
