    Well Lanky Panky, me old sailor, when you get asked for links to your asinine pronouncements, you tend to become overly evasive. "Was told that it was a secret". "I'll get banned". etc etc

    Anyway, as a parent to a disabled child, I fully expect to have a disabled engine running on Sodor Island with some transsexual guards helping gender fluid family units off on the carriages.
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    If you have no intention of compying with what is normal custom and practice on internet forums you will continue to be asked for a reference when you open a thread about a news item with no link.

    Complying? You make it sound like a rule and it isn't,nobody is required to provide a link though it does help to support your post,anyway people including yourself post all sorts without providing a link so you are in no position to make demands of anybody.
    To paraphase one of our last great political leaders Winston Spencer Churchill "Never in the field of British politics and Brexit was so much expected by so many of so few......only to be bitterly disappointed"

    It is common and accepted practice for internet forums. (I have been using the internet since before it was called that. )

    well...

    I suppose it went PC when the Fat DIRECTOR became the fat Controller. I'm not surprised.

    When will they introduce goblins ?

    There was once a small hotel in Ireland that advertised "a Goblin Teasmaid in every room"...

    I thought they did the diversity bit when they brought diesels into the story. Some people have probably never got over that!

    To be honest, I can't say any single bit of this whole thread could be described as interesting, not even my own post. I was just idling away a minute or two before making my next coffee.[/QUOTE]
