  1. each country in the eu have a say on how many they are willing to take, ie Germany said all were welcome, but the people didn't agree so the govt. is being challenged. Hungary have said we wont take any, Italy have refused any immigrants permission to land, also Malta, France since late 2017 have selected 458 refugees from Niger and Chad for resettlement, yet pledged to settle 3000 before oct 2019. Austria are against immigrants after seeing the increase in sex and crime in Germany. The un migration pact was ratified 165 countries were involved, 152 voted in favour, 5 voted against eu countries Hungary, Poland, Czech Rep, 12 Abstained including Austria, Bulgaria, Italy, Latavia, Slovakia. Belgium voted for it, but the PM resigned over the vote. So immigration is still high on the eu's agenda, and still the leavers main objection to staying in the eu...
  2. William Tell's arch enemy Gessler who was a smurthwaite impersonator...
  3. and a little aside, the little lad who was William Tell's son and had the apple shot off his head, was the 180 voice on Bullseye tv quiz...
  4. there was the Rex and Rio with a joint entrance, in the High street, then further down the Savoy opposite the Guildhall, lastly I think the Roxy across the road from the baths and Queens gardens, with the statue of Queen Victoria outside...
  5. yea it was similar to a bike pump, but with a canister at the frount, you pumped the handle and it sucked the spray up into the tube and out of the nozzle...
  6. no ones mentioned the bug hut in WOLSTANTON, again cannot remember a film but I do remember the staff walking down the aisles spaying everyone...
  7. i'm not questioning everything they do, just saying on the information given in this thread post 6, they were being replaced because the mechanism for raising and lowering the flags had to be replaced cause of rust which was beyond repair... if the poles were unsafe fair enough but if it was just the pulley why go to unnecessary expense.
  8. the COL ie Gaumont/Colosium in Burslem, that was the posh one the tatty one across the road- Bournes bank was the Palace/Eselldo?. My parents took me from about 1952, they both had a film on mon. tue, wed. then changed film for thur fri sat... sundays had either one film or if it was a big film sun and all week. We went Monday and Saturday so saw 2 a week out of 4, can't remember any particular films but I do remember buying a block of cadburys chocolate for 6d and cutting each square in 4 so it would last longer...oh and trying to find the bag of salt in the crisps and not making a noise.
  9. the point being made is why have 10 new poles, if indeed that is what is meant. The ones in place now looked all right last home match, they need flags have done for awhile, if as one poster said the flags could not be raised, so why replace everything when only the mechanism, and cord plus flags are needed... save the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves...
  10. you've hit the nail on the head... Brexiteers won... be it by one vote or one million, our democracy is by voting on subjects, the one with the most votes carry it...
  11. there are poles behind the stand 6 or 8, and unless the mechanisms (pulleys) are very high tech they only consist of a pulley over which the flag cord runs over...
  12. brexit has done everything, and most importantly split this country, and i'm afraid it will not heal'''
  13. everything above is very true, and the only solution is to go back to the basic cause ie the referendum, and abide by the result...
  14. this is our parliament, particularly for the last 3yrs,
  15. Surely if the flags can't be raised or lowered it would be the pulley at the top?, so why new poles?...
