    Popish Presents

    Presents exchanged between His Holiness and Prince Charles:

    Pope to Charles : lump of old etched copper & a medal
    Charles to Pope : some flowery porcelein plates & a photo of himself with Swamp Donkey

    Failure of imagination, or what?

    I'm sure we could think of some much more appropriate and interesting gifts for them to swap.

    For the Pope: a Gay Rights T-shirt.
    For Charles : some trousers which fit him.

    I only believe in practical presents:

    Charles to Pope: Duchy Farms goodie basket

    Pope to Charles: Easy read version of the Bible

        That's very good.

        I was going to suggest that HRH could have bought him something with a nice paisely pattern print, but you beat me to it.

          One of the minor regrets I have is that when I was in Thailand I did not buy the T-shirt that had emblazoned on it:

          Nobody knows I'm gay

            Bet that the minors whom you met don't regret your reticence.

              I think they all know. They do not regard me as a threat.

                  They give 4 days notice of when Countries will be changing colour and it wasnt possible to leave because all transport had been suspended and there were no flights, buses or trains to the international airport and 1000 kilometers is a bit far to walk . And very quickly after the announcement that a...

                  I'm still amazed at the number of people returning from "red countries" seemingly paying £2,300 to stay locked in a hotel room for 11 nights - why would they?

                  IF the Country I'd visited was, or moved to, a "red Country", I would be looking for a green or amber one which...

                  A) i wouldn't be in a red country to begin with - they dont change to red overnight, so always time to get out.

                  B) As above, why would you stay somewhere without being able to get a vaccination

                  Sorry, but only you to blame for not sorting it out 3, 6 or 12 months ago....

                  by jpucng62
                  I am one of the customers whose utility company has gone bust, so Im pretty sure my bills will be going up. I can afford this, but many people look on course for a difficult winter with a reduction of UC, increase in utility bills & food prices probably going up because of shortages & Brexit....

                  BTW, when a company like British Gas takes on an account, they're allowed to recoup the cost of migration (a few hundred pounds per customer) in their tariffs over the next months (from every customer, not just the one's being migrated), so it's very lucrative for them and adds more cost to the consumer...

                  The price of the raw materials have shot up and the consumer picks up the increased price.
                  The question is, does the government intervene to subsidise the consumer or does it let the market operate freely.
                  And if it does intervene, does it do it by running the utility companies or injecting...

                  I am in a red Country myself and trying to get back to the U.K.
                  The problem with your suggestion ; Being in a Red zone Country , you need to find a green/amber Country that will let you in.
                  Some Green/Amber Countries do not allow tourists to enter/need to be fully vaccinated/need to...

                  Also Government should waive the 5% VAT and let the energy gas company keep it.

                  Much safer to get double vaccinated and stay at home. Save money to pay the gas bills.

                  BBC reported the Health Minister saying .- 99% of covid deaths in the first 6 months of 2021 were persons who were not vaccinated.

                  I completely agree.
