Thoughts from an active pensioner who is now somewhat past his Biblical "Use-by date"
"Why just be difficult, when with a little more effort you can be bloody impossible?"

This could only happen in Britain
I'm sure that this would never happen anywhere else in the World.
Two or three rows of ordinary, unarmed, policeman, all smiling, walking slowly down the Mall followed by a huge crowd. No pushing and shoving, no linked arms, no batons at he ready, just ordinary bobbies slowly walking ahead of the crowd.
Amongst the many pictures taken on Friday, this shows the British people, and of course the police, at their best.
I was a grammar school boy who went into engineering after having studied part time at Technical Colleges and gained the necessary experience to become a Chartered Engineer.
Initially I worked on defence electronics and subsequently on ground radar systems and radar data processing.
Now retired, my main interests are working with computers, family history research, church bell ringing and travel.
I am absolutely against Britain being a member of the E.U., and believe that whilst climate change may be taking place, there is absolutely no proof that it is man-made.
For these two reasons, I am unable to support the present day Conservative Party, although I always did so until Margaret Thatcher left office.
