The Oxford English Dictionary definition of the verb 'cancel' is  "Decide or announce that (a planned event) will not take place." as Holby City did not take place it was therefore cancelled.


Okay, splitting hairs time.  >:D .  The episode will take place, only not at the time originally scheduled.

“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

while, of course, our politicians gave all the IRA b******s a free pardon years ago.

they blow up RUC guys, and their families, blow up pubs, shops, offices, hotels etc, ambush troops, while of course hiding behind a screen of women and kids, and get away scot free.

however, be a squaddie in a riot situation, fired on by snipers and return fire, and you'll be pilloried.

AIN'T BRITISH JUSTICE GREAT  :censored:

did my time in NI, nothing but respect for the squaddies, RUC and Ulster TA lads, and their families.

There should have been an equal amnesty when the pardons and the agreement not to pursue terrorist convictions of the IRA for the Soldiers that all served, what loon would accept amnesty of prosecution on one side?

I don't think this portion of the thread should be allowed to continue, as you say political comments are not welcome on this forum and feelings will run high amongst members from both sides of the argument.
Might I suggest, rather than close the Angry thread, members self moderate and take up their respective sides of the argument with the powers that be.

Lawrence,

It hadn't continued, except you (and now me) continuing it. Caz warned, class 37025 apologised. What's the problem?

Exactly the reason for my moderator comment - if necessary we can delete the items but would prefer our members to self moderate on this friendly forum.  If any more political posts appear they will be deleted.

back to safer ground, hopefully.

having finally received SWMBO's hoover, after a 679 mile tour of the North of England, from a sender 51 miles away [see previous tirade against Parcel-2-Go and DPD] our daughter decided she wanted one as well, so against my better judgement I placed the order.

again, dropped off at the DPD collection point the same day as order placed, 12th, then sat there till the 14th before being collected.
as previously sender had paid for next day delivery, which should have been the 14th.

queried with P2G last night as to why parcel had sat there for two days and was told 'high winds' had delayed the pickup [hopefully the same winds blew the leaves of the rails  :no:] and advised that delivery would be today.

just checked and    :o  it has been to Birmingham hub from Dartford and back to Burgess hill, arr at 06:03 this morning, and will be delivered between 12:25 and 13:25 today.

so perhaps not the happy thread, but maybe not the angry thread, but as suggested by another member, maybe the slightly miffed thread  :)

update.....

arrived at 12:35 safe and sound, so happy SWMBO, happy daughter ....

Its funny how people experience different service in different parts of the country. Round here DPD are superb, always prompt delivery, always on time, always left where told, always upload photo of delivery. The one time they left a parcel at the wrong house I phoned the driver, yes, the driver, and he turned round picked up the parcel and redelivered it to our house.

Royal Fail on the other hand....

...   :veryangry:   :censored:   :veryangry:   :censored:   :veryangry: ...

they couldn't deliver the punchline to a playground joke, I've got three complaints outstanding, the customer service is patronising and condescending, and I still have to go and collect my parcels. Apparently I have to write them a letter to enable them to know which neighbour they should try first....

...we only have ONE neighbour, which they've been told umpteen times.

Eeaaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!

And don't get me started on Parcel Farce.

we are very lucky here,

posties can read, and know where the safe place is if we are out

Hermes driver is the same

Yodel driver doesn't put parcels in the bin, but rings the bell and waits for you to answer

and the DPD driver is also great, it seems as always to be the the company that is [brown effluent waste]

guess we have people who are interested in doing their jobs, and for that I give thanks.
