Trying to dish up some dirt already Garinda ?

Wonder what her maiden name was and her mothers ... would not be difficult to trace the Accrington family she mentions.

Therefore cotton = twine
Twine=very, very fine rope
Ropey must therefore equal a person or people that have a passion about natural fibres and other associated woven products, no doubt the Conservative Candidate for Portsmouth, (the largest rope making town at one time), has had their Conservatives calling Labour a right set of weavers or always in a spin.

Nothing at all to worry about, such ignorance often comes to light from those that never got their hands dirty from any honest toil during their lifetime.

Not at all.

Just putting into practice that old Jesuit motto.

'Show me the public school girl at eleven, and I'll show you the politican.'

I actually know two girls from her year, one one from two years below, so I should get a fair picture, when I quiz them.

Not being local might not necessarily go against her.

After all Kitty Ussher was bussed in from outside the area, and taken into the Dingle's bosom.

Doesn't the Blackpool drain go straight into the sea?

I though the seafood, open mouthed and treading water at the outlet pipe, was why they were so big and juicy.

Re: Conservative candidate named.

Just 2 thoughts so far -,
1 ) Our prospective MP doesn't know how or when to use full stops.
2) That photo of Oak Hill Park looks very ,very recent.

They took a leaf out of Sellafields book, (formerly known as Windscale) & pump it straight onto the Irish Beaches now.

Harriet Harman's not standing in Hyndburn, even if she too probably does a lovely curtsey.

As stated, Queen Mary gels might not be the brightest buttons in the box, in my opinion and experience, but they are frightfully, frightfully, well mannered.

Re: Conservative candidate named.

You never know.

It might be nice having one of our social betters as our M.P.

Like a return to the old days.

We could stand on the station, waving our cloth caps, as the train streamed away t'big city. Taking her Ladyship to Westminster, to plead our case in t'big House for us.

Good God Sir, you make the blood vessels in my temples expand and retract under their own volition!


The good old days, Pah, you know nothing about the good old days, back then the Male of the family only would be waved off and his good lady Wife She would have to dash home tear stained hanky in hand to ensure the upstairs Parlour maid and the kitchen skivvy hadn't been able to break the bonds tying them to their duties.

Then she would just about have enough time for three fainting fits before settling down for tea.


Yours faithfully,

Col. Buffington (rtd).

Dear Col. Buffington,
in days of yore, if the master of the house was in receipt of enough independent wealth, this on occasion would allow a blue-stocking spouse, such as Lady Bountiful, to carry out certain good works, for example charitable assistance, helping the poor and downtrodden of an area, as on the dark satanic streets of Hyndburn.
Your's etc.,
P. Rim (Miss)

Don't be to harsh Lindsay.

You can have full stops, or you can have swans made out of napkins.

It's not possible to have both.

Miss Rim as we have not been formally introduced I will refrain from using your P,

Why, oh why, would the good lady of any respectable household work towards undoing all that her husband has aimed for during his career, does she not realise that he is no doubt the reason there are downtrodden in any area?

Without the downtrodden how could he keep his Mills running on starvation wages without somebody for his workers to look down on and be grateful that 'there but for the grace of God go I'.

She should be ashamed, there is a place for everyone and everyone should adhere to his/her place. I wish people would refrain from educating women who knows where this could take us?

Bring back the ducking stool & the Scold's Bridle, ahhh, now those were the days,

Yours faithfully,

Col. Buffington (rtd).
