"Yes Stanley I agree we must continue to fund all the people working at
the BBC no matter if they are required or not, breathtaking
"

I never said that Frank. Stop putting words into my mouth. As a matter of fact Patten has gone on record against the cuts to the World Service. You are entitled to regard other people as having nonsensical opinions but there is no need for vituperation and you would serve your case better if you put up a rational explanation of your position. 

Meanwhile,in the Real World....  I look forward to Sue visiting this afternoon to collect her Ladslove cuttings. It will be nice to see her.

 I heard an interesting discussion on R4 yesterday and Geffrey Howe commented that it was about time that MP's pay was raised to attract candidates with no private income. He reckons we are heading back to the 18th century as regards membership of theHouse. I agree with him and what struck me was that if a Means Test is regarded as permissible for regulating payment of taxpayer's money to Benefit claimants why not apply the same principle to MP's pay? Leave pay scales where they are now but pay a benefit to less well-heeled candidates as a subsidy. Not a large amount of money and if it helped to get grass roots candidates in I'd be all for it.

I often wonder how intelligble the Wurzel's dialect was to people who didn't have a dialect of their own. I could understand every word but I always remember a BBC producer saying that they couldn't broadcast Newton and myself having a conversation because it was totally unintelligible. She cut it all out of the film we did on Bancroft which was originally almost all Newton. A seior civil servant once said of a conversation between me and Newton, 'I take it you were speaking English?" I think we sometimes forget how disadvantaged non-dialect speakers are.

The Wurzels were a very popular band when I was at Southampton Uni. We used to book them regularly for a reasonable fee, put  a disco on with them and make quite a profit to support the losses on less popular acts - like Rod Stewart!!. Nolic

Stanley i love your comment about "how disadvantaged non dialect speakers are!" i had a friend with a very thick northern Irish accent who visited Nashville ..all the first day people kept saying they couldn't understand a word he said ..in the end he told me " I took one of them aside and told them to stop being so ignorant, of course they could understand me if they listened properly!" Seems he didn't have anymore problems after that!

A TODDLER has been found dead at a house in Barnoldswick yesterday morning.An investigation is now underway to try to establish how the two-and-a-half year-old little boy died.

Police were called by the ambulance service at about 9-30 a.m. yesterday after paramedics were called to St Mary’s Avenue.

The death is currently being treated as “unexplained” and two people have been arrested in connection with the death.

A man and woman, both aged 24 and from Barnoldswick, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and child cruelty.

A post mortem examination will now be carried out to try to establish the exact cause of death.

 What is wrong with these people?

Kev, what is wrong with them is a more serious version of the brain affliction that affected a group of about 6 people in Burnham on Sea the other day. You might recall I've mentioned on OG before how holidaymakers keep having to be rescued along the Severn estuary because they ignore all the warning signs. Well these folk ignored the signs about the tides and got caught against the bottom of a cliff with the tide rising fast. A rescue helicopter had to come from RAF Chivenor to lift them to the top of the cliff. Guess what, when they went to get their car that they'd left further up the beach it was under water! Again they had ignored all the warning signs that are displayed everywhere about the tide and not parking on the beach.

It is a sad fact that many children are born as a consequence of pleasure seeking rather than a strong desire for a family, also it is possible for children to be born for financial reasons, and like it or not, this puts some of the children at risk. Last Saturday afternoon I saw a very young Boy, only just able to run, come out of the back of Arthur St and run towards the main road, his Mother appeared and just managed to stop him before the kerb, 20 minutes later he was there again, his Mother did not appear, straight out into the road from behind parked cars, it wasnt some unseen hand that saved him, it was luck, there was a chap waiting for his lift to work and he grabbed him, took him back up Foster Rd and found his Mother. The luck was twofold, this is a very busy and dangerous road, and there was a gap in the traffic, the outcome could have been very different, no thanks were offered for the safe return of the child and it was clear that this infant is an encumberance rather than an object of great affection. Tizer, on a lighter note I have just read about someone avoiding a parking fee by parking on a harbour slipway, and then having the dubious pleasure of seeing it leave Portsmouth Harbour on the tide, i've never seen G6 hoisted on an Alpha Romeo.

The News of the World reporter who first brought the phone hacking scandal to everyone's attention has been found dead, but the police say there are no suspicious circumstances.

Perhaps the whole Metropolitan Police force should resign, because if they don't regard that as suspicious, none of them are fit to do their job...
