That's some good work there Athers - that was just the job.

I love Fennec foxes - ever since there were some at Woburn when I was a kid. I do like that, across pretty much the whole spectrum of quadruped mammals, baby animals "skip" alternating between their two front and two back feet.

Lambs are sweet when they do that, then they grow up and lose all their playfulness. It always makes me sad watching a lamb become a sheep.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a by-election where I live today. Just between us, I've heard - we've had more campaign flyers and junk than I've ever experienced. No The narrative goes that UKIP have a chance of claiming a seat that's been Labour since 1950. This remains to be seen. Evil or Very Mad

I'm in Staines.  I've called and e-mailed and texted my family but they're not answering/at home/whatever.  Permission to be really quite scared, probably unnecessarily but you never know, in here with you chaps for a while?

Father has texted me, they're miles away from the carnage. Thank God.

That's good to hear, and I'd probably react with the same initial anxiety!

There should be one key narrative out of today's attack: The Police did an outstanding, world class job. They dealt with one of the most difficult attacks to police, using a vehicle as a weapon, did an excellent job as the event occurred and had counter terrorist reinforcements at the scene within minutes. What happened was unequivocally shit. But it would have been a whole lot worse without the job those people did today.

Good to hear Balla - I was relieved to see you posting much the same on the Facebook. Thumbs Up!

Muss is right, and I feel that praise for our services is something we should hear/see much more often. Relieved that no-one in your family was hurt, Balla, whilst feeling hollow for the people who have been affected.

Sounds like it's being brought forward to placate (is that the right word?) her own ideas.

Saw it on Facebook and thought it was Fake News, till I saw it being the talk of Twitter.

It will be interesting how it will go with only 2 months between now and then, which could be worse as seen someone say Australia had a election after just 3 weeks of calling to have one.

From the new piece you link to Zero, what May is saying seems to make sense and both Corbyn & Farron seem to want it as well.

It's a very clever political move on May's part. It comes at a time when neither opposition party seems to be actually offering opposition, and by holding it now (and by sweeping the decks with the left) she'll look like she has a massive mandate for a Brexit as hard as, to quote Zero, an unemployed porn star.

It seems a bit hypocritical that May said the reason a Scottish Independence Referendum couldn't go ahead just now was to avoid further uncertainty in these uncertain times... and then she goes and calls a snap General Election. Rolling Eyes

I know the reason for doing so is to strengthen her position to go ahead with Brexit, but it still made me roll my eyes thinking about it.

I wish we could have had the five-year term that was promised: and I've already voted for an MP this year, thank you very much! Some folk only took down their 'Vote Labour' signs a few weeks ago. Evil or Very Mad
