Well, Dick, I've always said to Mrs Steve, who hates the big money in Premier League football, that at least the players and the fans aren't fighting wars while they're engaged in the beautiful game. Turning the forum into a temporary Mad Hatter's tea party might just be a similarly good notion. I used to say the same to Dale Wisely, but he was far too impatient. Leave it to us and we will defuse spats, guaranteed. Just sack the fascists first, that's all. They're easy enough to spot.

I have gilets (pretentious? Moi?) that I got in a job lot from Mountain Warehouse, £44.99 down to £12.99 each. Their loss, my gain. They are made of cotton. I will not go out looking like Michelin Man. In winter, that's my garb, one of them on top of a shirt. If it's pissing down or a bit draughty, I wear a cheap waterproof on top. Always shorts and sandals. I'm famous for it round here. And I'll have you know that a bum freezer summer jacket looks great on the right bum, all year round. You're talking like a fashion victim.

I never wear long trousers, I have no long-sleeve shirts, I don't wear socks and my footwear consists exclusively of cheap sandals bought at Mountain Warehouse (I do have a single shirt, jacket, trousers and pair of black shoes for weddings and funerals. I've had those shoes for 35 years :-)) If you expect me to wear a tie you can go to hell. I don't have any big, thick coats and I wouldn't wear them, and I have no sweaters or cardies and I can't abide slippers. I buy two or three cheap flowery shirts per annum. But we are of this world, and everything I DO buy seems to be made in China. My very large informal garden is operated on organic lines and I grow a lot of veg. I have a considerable "wild" area, and the perimeter consists of nettles, brambles and brushwood, fantastic for wildlife. My house is four miles from town. The cycle ride thereto is very dangerous. Without a car, no-one would ever live in this house. The days of the horse and cart are long gone. There is next to no public transport here, and in any case the nearest road is a ten-minute walk away. So I'm not going to apologise for running a car. I passed the MOT two days ago and noted that in the last year I did about 6000 miles. On a (very necessary) hundred-mile round trip to the hospital on Tuesday I got 60.5 miles to the gallon.

I'm not skint and I have no debts. This house is mine. I wouldn't say that I live frugally, as I don't need to, but neither do I splash out. Since 2010, before which we hardly ever left this country, we've had about seven or eight holidays in Spain, Italy and Greece. I'm hardly what you might call a frequent flyer, but yes I've flown in planes a few times. We've had double glazing fitted all round at some expense, which keeps the house warmer and reduces our fuel consumption. We have multifuel stoves in two rooms on which we burn some smokeless fuel and quite a lot of wood (which I season) from our own garden. Dutch Elm disease is a curse but it does have that upside for us.

I do some things right and a few things wrong, but I don't appreciate being lectured to by to people who at one turn plead poverty and at another turn challenge me for doing things they don't do but which, for all I know, they might well do if they had similar (modest) resources to me. Not that anyone here fits that bill...

Dave, the charity shop/thrift store shopping isn't just greener, it's very practical. At least for the time being people are setting aside some fairly new, rarely used, really good stuff that I could never have afforded new. And all because they have the next big thing at their house (for many these days it is an Instapot or an Air Fryer). I'm happy to use the electric skillet or convection toaster oven at my house or rehome it to family or via eBay.) And if anyone is in the market for really good crock pots, they're filling the thrift store shelves now.

As to the death of an MP, that is horrible. Here in the US it seems there are some congressional folks who rarely if ever see their constituents even in controlled (safe) settings, and this kind of thing gives them all the more excuse to not start seeing their voters now. I imagine it's the same over there. (US Congressperson Gabby Giffords was shot at one of her in-person events, and she miraculously survived a serious head injury, but that was mostly due to good luck and the close-by surgeons at the University of Arizona hospital system.)

Of course, killing anyone, MP or not, is terrible. That he was doing so at his surgery is doubly tragic, because, like Jo Cox who was killed at hers, it can only make MPs more wary of going to surgeries at all, which will reduce their links to their constituents further. This is tragic whichever party the MP is a member of and we need to look again at how to protect them when they are meeting constituents.

I will, however, hold off talk of 'nutters'. We don't know enough about the perpetrator yet, and it may turn out that 'despairing' is a better fit. I don't excuse, but I would still like to understand what the assailant's state was.

PFR - Yes, I know it isn't personal and, no, I don't feel guilty about anything.

I have bought hardly any new clothes or furniture for what must be 5 years now! All charity shop stuff (Apart from underwear!) Not out of necessity but because it is a greener thing to do. I also walk or cycle where I can, never buy highly processed food and knit my own petrol. (NB. One of the previous statements is false)

PFR - I am not making any demands at all. Just asking a question that you have chosen not to answer. That's absolutely fine by me and your lack of alternatives to the M25 protest seems, to me, to indicate that you do not have one. Fair enough. I don't know what is the best form of protest either.

I have no need to signal anything wokey (your term) as I am neither middle class, multiple car owning nor a frequent flyer. If you chose to fire off broadsides you really do need to chose your targets more carefully. Oh, and I do not have multiple electronic music making gadgets either :-D

According the Wikipedia "The early 18th century saw the "game of domino" surfacing in Europe, appearing first in Italy, before rapidly spreading to Austria, southern Germany and France. From France, the game was introduced to England by the late 1700s, purportedly brought in French prisoners-of-war."

That all sounds dangerously European, even EU.   Maybe grandma is up for a game of 'British Bulldog.'

Doubt if it will still fit me - maybe the moths have had it...???

We are on the same side, with presumably similar goals,

I made a decision in the early 80s not to bring kid's into a world
with what was then such an uncertain nuclear wasteland future.
So I don't have a personal vested stake in the extended longevity of humanity.
Apart from my innate affinity for some kinds of people..

Like it or lump it, I've never been one of those lefties who over-estimates the effective power of disruptive street protests...

WE do not have enough time left to squander on stupid backfiring tactics, and loose cannon liability individuals and groups
who do our progressive cause more harm than good..

Seems simple enough to me...???

You're right, we don't know who insulate Britain, and their real leaders are.

But I do generally trust my hard earned judgement of people.

Steve - you protested donkeys years ago before the internet was even a twinkle in anyone's imagination..

I marched for the miners;
and occupied an accademic faculty for a week,
for fuck knows who can remember now whatever cause that was for..???

[Not sure if I was an actual fully accepted student socialist worker then, they were really stuck up elitists on our campus].

I protested in a rabble yelling abuse at a tory mp arrogant enough to visit our lefty Polytechnic..

Even came too close to chucking a spunk filled johnny at the queen mum,
before I snapped out of it and realised the crowd would rip me apart
before the police even got to me...

.. and various other youthful futile petty protests...

I do still wish I had set fire to that rolls royce,
though again had sense enough to withdraw sensibly in tactical retreat.
The fate of the owners golf clubs had to make do as a symbolic gesture of class war defiance, and militant cycling..

.. and I wrote some pithy punk rock protest songs..


40 years ago, I made serious principled decisions how I would not live my life,
and stubbornly stuck to them no matter how self defeating it's turned out for my financial well being..

[It's a lot easier being an eco warrior in a North Wales TeePee, on a trust fund...]


However our living in the past, dwelling on old battle glories, is not helping persuade back near enough Labour voters NOW...

Actually, Dave, and I think I might have said this before, I'm not sure that the TACTICS of the protesters play well with most people. My response to that is, big deal. They are out there taking action (lazy my arse!). I remember being in an East London NUT meeting with my mate Blair Peach, a frighteningly huge number of years ago. Whatever the issue to hand was, I can't remember now. But we were waffling along, talking about raising the thing with this, that and the other, writing letters, bringing it up in school union meetings, etc. Blair had a terrible stammer, but, in his frustration at the indecision of the meeting, he stood up, totally out of order, stammer-free, and roared out, "But when are we actually going to stop talking to ourselves and TAKE SOME BLOODY ACTION!"

That always stayed with me...

You haven't told us how many of your sacrifices were your decisions or were forced on you by the vicissitudes of life. Don't bother to tell me. I'm not in any way judgemental of people I don't know, just, maybe, a bit judgemental of the things they claim... I find it ironic that you seem to be slightly the opposite...

With hundreds of others, including the missus and our young kids, I lay down on the road in Kensington Church Street to protest against nuclear weapons. We were pretending to be the nuclear dead. In the 80s if I remember correctly. We closed the road for hours, and I didn't notice any mentally-sick people or middle-class grandstanding nutters. Funny thing is, pfr, I was actually there. I don't consciously associate with nutters, even if I think they're on my side. But I was there to see what was going on, what the dynamic was. Perhaps you should take yourself off to the next road protest. There's the possibility that it might just open your eyes.

Get off yer high horse...

.. though at least horses are greener transport..


I'm bored of playing silly buggers with holier than thou armchair street protest warriors...

btw.. I've never owned a motor vehicle of any description,
and only ever flown one journey - to Corfu and back in 1987...

The personal IS political...

Still evading the issue, PFR. Nothing to do with me. How would you protest against global warming?

More sanctimonious bollocks then..

I've been making serious self sacrifices since the late 1970s,
which have had serious adverse consequences for my career and finances...

That's my lifetime dedication to maintaining a minimalist footprint green lifestyle,
while maintaiing some necessary connection with the modern world...

How many cars have you owned, how many air-miles have you flown, then...???

What I am doing is anything positive and constructive I am capable of,
which could convince floating [and ex] voters to bring back a Labour Govt..


Basically, sweet FA to protest against global warming then?
