Why is it that this nanny state is overun by those health and safety merchants so typified by certain Ribnet wardens? Fun? Oh no, not without a safety assesment first and if spotted a thoroughly outraged post will appear on Ribnet with muttered threats of reports to the CAA. Anyone get the registration? Lucky for the pilot he was too far away otherwise the authorities would be inundated by emails from certain jobsworths on here.
Is it the case that the manservants in Terry-Thomas's time are now the inflatable boat owners of today looking to get their own back on their former masters?
I see a grudging resentment by many on here of the "devil may care" attidude so typified by the ruling class that once made this country great...
Tugging my forelock and begging your pardon Sire,
Would you be meaning by "ruling classes" the likes of Lord Cardigan who presided over the debacle that was the charge of the Light Brigade, or Lord Lucan who failed to charge at all.
Or did you also have in mind the thousands of ordinary lads who went over the top at the Somme; the naval victories of the lowly parson's son and indeed, the poor bastards that rode through the valley of death?
