soldiers and civilians (french and spanish), at Dún an Óir in Ireland.
Although the defenders eventually surrendered, most of them were then massacred on the orders of the

The Irish 'troubles' economic conflict in the 'name - guise' of religion are still going on today.
The number of deaths and serious injuries are miniscule compared to days of old.
Those who have lost loved ones; never forget...
Wanna be in my Gang GOSH
Many countries have lost people due to; call it what you will.
The UK in modern times has a lot less 'casualties' than most modern nation states.
Does the UK line up with the USofA - the greater number of dead are more likely to have been caused by members
of 'todays native' population than 'terrorists'.

1957 A major radiation leak was detected at the Windscale (now known as Sellafield)
nuclear plant in Cumbria after an accident three days earlier.
Milk from about 500 square km. of nearby countryside was diluted and destroyed for about a month.
Only major incidents are reported - there have been no deaths in the UK...
They - those who make a living out of the game - say.
Smoking is nowt to do with cancer; they used to say...
Nukes go in tandem with Nuclear power generation - you can't have one without the other.

2013; The discovery of the first chemical to prevent the death of brain tissue in a neurodegenerative disease
was hailed as an exciting and historic moment in medical research although
'More work is needed to develop a drug that could be taken by patients.'
Commenting on the research, Professor Roger Morris, from King's College London, said:
'This finding, I suspect, will be judged by history as a turning point in the search for medicines
to control and prevent Alzheimer's Disease.'
Every so often some sort of cure is announced for cancer - nowt to do with appeasing the shareholding
Invention is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration.
'Who am I to disagree', he uttered with wry glee. No gloss GOSH
Wonder if Greece is lined up to be fracked...
The land below the nation state of Greece is blessed only with very low grade ore - I am led to believe.
I could be wrong I could be right.
We are now led to believe that The USosA is self sufficient in fossil fuels due to fracking.
Fracking has been around since the 1950's...
If so why did America have to invest militarily (at such cost) in middle east oil!
Some one is telling huge porkies - don't mention funny money; some americans call it the time dollar.
And please don't mention; Mr Trump.

It really was an eye for an aye in them days...
Wanna be in my gang!GOSH
Once (just once!) again; it was protestant v catholic - wanna be in my gang?

He gained rank from successful sorties of 'action' and eventually retired with the Rank of,
'admiral of the blue' - the third highest rank of the era.
See how they run from/with a man with a gun GOSH
Promotion after the rank of sea captain was by seniority.
Do times change for an establishment!
A generation ago it was acknowledged that the navy had more admirals than ships...
Wonder what the ratio is after the latest cuts - no giggling GOSH
This rise through the ranks of aspiration is appendaged as 'Social mobility' to those that adhere.
To those that don't it is more recognisable as 'social climbing'...
Perhaps! or without doubt; to reach the promised land one has to clamber over another persons wheelchair.
Life is a bitch; just ignore the glitch... GOSH
1988; Girls began to study at Magdalene College, Cambridge for the first time.
To mark the occasion male students wore black armbands and the porter flew a black flag.

with the local plebs.
Sex and fighting again GOSH

It is made of bronze.
Eric and Ern are the classic example of rags to riches in the entertainment industry.
The made their name when the working class nearly ruled the industry - what industry!
Never forget that 'society' depends on making things.
Some entertainers keep their working class roots - others don't.
Spin affects all levels of society and is affected by all levels of income.
Have you got one foot in the grave/gravy GOSH
When the Swan Hunter shipyard(s) 'closed' down, someone nicked a huge bronze propellor from the securitised

Will the plebs have a better life now most of the docks are gone GOSH
The latest vessel - an aircraft carrier no less - has no aircraft; as yet.

1969 The opening of Preston Bus Station, one of the largest in Western Europe.
Threatened with demolition since the year 2000, campaigns and applications were made numerous times

Preston City Council announced that the bus station would be demolished,
but in 2013 it was saved when English Heritage granted it the status of a Grade II listed building.

1984 Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher escaped an assassination attempt when an IRA bomb
exploded in the Grand Hotel, Brighton.
It was being used by delegates to the Conservative Party Conference.
Five people were killed and 30 people injured, including the Employment Secretary Norman Tebbit
and his wife Margaret, who was left permanently disabled.
Norman Tebbit was known as the Chingford polecat - onyerbike.
Ever seen a redundant miner push a bag of sea coal on a dodgy bike for miles!
He was spun as a BALPA union official - yet was one of the most right wing tory politicians ever.
Some plebs must have voted for him - he said with a wry grin and gin... no Josh GOSH
The Greeks have a relatively large 'defence' force.
Will the 'ripping apart' be delayed by the formation of an EU 'army'.

1884; Greenwich was chosen as the universal time meridian of longitude from which standard times
throughout the world are calculated.
Much of the planet was pink - in the nicest possible way; female brats used to wear blue,and vice versa -

One of the secondary reasons for 'the city' being/remaining (just) established in London, is GMT.

The moving and manipulation of money (a con trick) is only viable for so long.
Most nation states have competed by the manipulation of money in a world market while predominantly
relying on manufacturing.
Time for change in the now desperate nation states of US and the USofA.
The EU would have to change without Brexit.
Will there be a Grexit! GGGOSH

Known as 'The Iron Lady' she was the longest serving Prime Minister for more than 150 years.
She was born above her father's grocer's shop: No 1 North Parade, Grantham, Lincolnshire.
I can understand people (social mobility and all that) like her; however, I can't at all at all understand
why people voted for her and inequality.
Don't mention council houses ( individual endeavor ) and all that greed GOSH
