Safe ?

Post by Bill Bentley » Tue May 23, 2017 9:41 am

I heard the news last night, oh boy, it's like being back in the '70's.

Still doing a head count of my own gang, wait out ...

I hope also that none of our extended family was caught up in the madness.

Be aware, keep safe :!: :!:

It was a terrible, terrible event. Unfortunately/fortunately, depending on your view of these things, the rhetoric of all the pundits on the TV news in Australia seems to be changing from Political Correctness to some of the language a redneck like me would use. So dreadful as it was some good might come of it.
Like you Bill, I hope none of my near family in UK are involved, victim-wise. And as you do, I hope that none of my wider family on Noah's Arc have been affected by this outrage.

Arnie :( :( :( :( :(

My thoughts and sympathies to all those affected by this cowardly attack. Love to all from Canada.
Canadian TV covering the story quite well, just heard ISIS admitted there involvement. COWARDS.

I have not lived in manchester for 50 years. But i'm still a manc and love the city and it's people. And like all mancs
I feel this deeply, my sympathies are with all those killed and injured and the families of those involved.
The people (if you can call them people) who plan and take part in acts of terror, do not deserve the right to exist,when and if they are arrested should face an automatic death sentence. The gloves must come off. Never mind a cushy prison sentence
