I am sure more sanctions agaisnt Russia and its energy sector its going to work out.

Never mind the likely consequences of the sanctions hurting Europe's back.

Agreed.
Can you imagine in the urban areas in particularly, where people pop into their local cafe/restaurant/take away/pub, on the way home for a bite to eat?

Its apt to be chaos, i can see a big run on generators coming for those that can afford them.



PS, I was a teenager in the '70's and remember 'lights out' starting at 7pm until 10pm every night for a good couple of weeks.


If it happens again i can also see a lot of people being rather afraid, because a lot of them might never have experienced not having access to electricity.

London is NOT representative of the UK any more than Chicago or Washington DC is representative of the USA.

I assure you, things aren't as bad as we make out sometimes.....but they are worse than they should be.

Plenty of parts of the USA resemble third-world nations with extreme poverty and degradation all over the shop.

Take for instance some areas of Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky or Arkansas.

At least in the U.K there are some safety nets in place to catch some of the poor sods that fall through the cracks.

It's shocking how many homes in the US still don't have mains sewage. Even in the suburbs. And there are more homeless on the streets of LA than there are in the entire of the UK combined. Plus, shanty towns, the UK does not have shanty towns.

Here in Florida, we are very civilised and not used to seeing so much poverty and food made from blood. We travelled throughout the UK and the further north we travelled the more grim the image became. It reminded me of a Lowry painting. We were overjoyed to reach Scotland where the streets are much cleaner and the people much more friendlier. My friend says that many folks born pre 1970 hark back to the glory days of the 70’s and have been actively been trying to turn the clock back. I suppose with forthcoming power cuts etc they have now managed to achieve this which is a good thing.

I also encountered numerous vagrants and waifs attempting to sell me magazines. It reminded me of Oliver Twist, so many poor urchins. I had to be very forceful with one young man who demanded I buy his wears and attempted to touch my arm, I threatened to put a reiki spell on him and it was then he broke down in tears and confessed that he was actually a barrister who was not earning enough to support his family. Tragic.

It's an area where both our respective nations should be doing a whole lot better that's a given.

There are around 320,000+ homeless people or thereabouts in the UK currently on the streets or in temporary accommodation.

I foresee a high quality video production of zelansky doing a touching interview, in a nice and warm studio this winter while everyone is "cutting" and allowing their gov to talk about lock-dowms in a serious manner

The North of England is truly Gods Own Country.....and the North East is his own private garden.

We had to use a translator in New Castle, we couldn’t understand a word of what they said. Very strange folk!

Thats funny seeing some of what you've posted here..

Food made from blood, didn't you know we're all vampires here in Great Britain? Did you try the black pudding? it's delicious and the northerners make the best.
The Midlands onwards was the workhorse of the industrial revolution and the cities though smallish at the time, were very crowded including the homes in the major cities.
To help visualise this, Scotland is about 1/3 the size of England with a population of about 5 million but London alone has about twice that population, at around 9 million, Manchester has about 1/2 million.

The average salary for a barrister in the UK is £89,200.

If you are employed as a barrister, you can expect to earn around £25,000 to in excess of £100,000 with the top 2% taking home around £1 million a year.

Plus i think you have to be homeless to sell that magazine here in the UK.

Chances are the dude was telling porkies BarbaraTheEnlightened1.

It's bad here in the UK but to my knowledge barristers are not selling the "Big Issue" just yet.

Quite partial to black pudding myself.

A roll on black pudding, tattie scone, and square sausage with red sauce used to be my breakfast most days back when i was an apprentice. LoL

It's not so much that as having to go three whole hours without access to social media. Which I think must be contrary to the Geneva convention and is possibly the worst thing that could ever happen to anyone anywhere ever!!!!!

Newcastle is relatively close to where I live.
I know the place very well.

Good people.

Our accent is very strong but locals can tell subtle variations in our accents, I can tell if someone comes from 10 miles to the east of me, 10 miles to the north or 10 miles to the south.
All subtle but distinct differences and nuances.

It may be a bit drab and grey up North.....but we make up for that with our sense of humour.

I thinking heads will roll and the sky will fall there.

Better hope they charged their batteries before the power goes off or there will be riots in the streets.

On another note, it looks like Liz Truss has resigned by the way!

My fathers family were Northerners (Yorkshire) who moved to Brum just after the war before he was born. So I grew up having black pudding every Saturday as part of the breakfast fry up, if we could afford it. I'm also partial to haggis, it's a lovely hearty food. It's part of what makes our little island Great!
