In an ideal world: we'd all live forever, and the Earth's population would now be approaching one hundred billion.  Therefore.. oh!

And some people would still whinge there were too many houses and not enough services.

Could Amazon & Sports direct cope with that number online.

It's a pity the councils couldn't have a production line like in Brave New World and flick the switch to produce more doctors etc.

But I would still be singing and dancing in the rain - doo be do do, doobe doobe do do, doo be do do, doobe doobe do do, doo be do do, doobe doobe do do

In an ideal world: Jeremy Corbyn would be our conscience, and Donald Trump would be our provider.  In the real world: they both demand to be both!

Why are people who advocate respecting animal rights utterly disrespectful of all other rights?

Marlow Butchers, in, Ashford, Kent, was targeted earlier this month by activists who daubed red paint on the doors and windows of the shop.

Since then, the business has been subjected to online abuse.

Wayne Marlow, who runs the business with his father and brother, told Kent Online: "On the internet it has been very threatening.

"It has got ridiculous - activists from as far away as Australia are getting involved.

"The internet is the worst thing as not only are they threatening to physically destroy our business, but they are also tying to ruin our reputation online, too, by leaving negative reviews and comments.

"They want to close us down and people are threatening to smash the windows or petrol bomb the store.

At what point do vegans consider slaughtering animals for food is a no-no?

I often hear them moaning about the killing of animals such as chickens, sheep and cows, but strangely never hear them complaining about entire ecosystems of birds, bugs, and small mammals being destroyed when a farmer fetches in his grain crops to provide vegans with bread and seeds. 

I love all animals and wouldn't hurt a fly, but would happily eat a vegan if stranded with one on a desert island!

the answer is …. slowly roast a potato over an open fire and if you listen very carefully you can hear it squeal...… now how does that sit easy on your conscience?

I think its yet another group of altruistic well wishers with a genuine belief that have been hi-jacked by a militant group/s with their own agenda, as was green peace and many others, purely for the purpose of disseminating dissent and dare I say?? anarchy?? there is a symbol for that but its not on my keyboard!!

I saw an advert once for vegetarian black pudding -- I can only assume it was made from the blood of vegetarians ---RESULT!!!

As an aside I aside I saw a picture recently of a 'vegan' (are these folk characters from star trek?) protesting outside a DAIRY with a placard stating 'meat is murder' (I haven't given it the respect of capitals) -- er do these folk realise that you don't kill the cow for milk??

I have respect for other folks views, but please don't shove rabbit food down my neck and I wont shove my meat down yours....ahem

I have just conducted an experiment -- I offered the pup a choice between a brussels sprout and a roast pigs lug --he chose the latter - i examined both beforehand and although I do like a sprout, the pigs lug was def. more appealing to me -- but there again I have just been away in a field with a load scouts since Thursday, and am in a mind that perhaps Herod had the right idea....

Talking about pigs lugs, I wonder how the Bedlington Tesco's development is progressing?

You are clearly moving in the wrong social circles, young man.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
