Just to remind everyone that we have all benifited from the great British Empire looting the world and making us what we are today and whether or not you agree or disagree it's the way things are and have always been.

@Lisa - you are perfectly entitled to your opinion and i hardly think your posts have been ranting.  don't feel discouraged, i imagine there are lots of people who agree with you but just don't like to post.

I was going to click on the agree button but then I thought I'd write a comment instead and say "thank you". Wow! I can well understand people staying in the shadows.  I used to only read this forum and not write on it (true!). But then some years back a regular poster at that time (no longer with us I believe)) had a go at me by name because of my trying to save Sandy Lane playing fields ...

I've watched this forum for a long long while and stayed in the shadows equally as long for fear of being denigrated like so many other posters have been. I thought I'd be brave and take a risk.

Many good men, women & children died  fighting their way to that bunker so that we can all freely ...

Report the seller to the police if it bothers you so much.

My gripe is with the sale of loot to profit an individual or family. The person who profited was not even the officer that endured the risks of war. That would be less distasteful. Nonetheless, is it legal for soldiers to collect loot, pass it on to family who then sell it and profit from it? I don't believe it is. As far as I can tell it was forbidden even in 1945. The spoils of war belong to the ...

A YOUNG woman pedestrian was injured after colliding with a pick-up truck in a Dawlish car park this morning. The 26-year-old casualty from Torquay suffered head, hand and foot injuries in the incident at Oak Park Villas. It’s thought the vehicle accidentally ran over her foot during a reversing manoeuvre just after 9am. The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken ...

As a result, the schedule of works as part of the £14million scheme to raise the beach level at Dawlish Warren by two metres, as well as removing gabions along the sand spit, upgrading the revetments, dredging and recharging the beach and reinforcing the neck of the sand spit has changed.
