The Republican Party, the Party of Chaos doesn't know what it wants. If the Democrats agreed to a majority senate vote the Republicans wouldn't have enough votes to prevent a shut down. The Republicans cannot blame the Democrats. This will be a Republican shut down of the government.
Republicans always use the military as a prop and claim to love the troops...yet they pass a tax bill that negatively affects veteran’s programs.
Fran the republicans have 51 votes a bill needs 60 to pass, I believe it’s matter numbers ,da, at least 9 Democrats have to vote for it. So who’s holding it up
I'm disappointed with this article, which amounts to little more than throwing bunch of names and quotations with little in the way of analysis. Sloppy job, Guardian, please rewrite, it is such a rewarding topic!
I’m not sure I understand where the positive message in ed sheerans Shape of You is? Doesn’t the song primarily consist of the line ‘I’m in love with your body’?
Ok thats a good read, and at what point in our musical evlolution will the change of body "exhibitionism" change. At the end of the day, money is the goal of artist for the most part, and there is still the mentality of get rich quick to overcome. But thats just my thinking.
Spare a thought for the donkeys. Tbe often are worked to the point of dropping. Rarely getting a break. A few years ago it was shocking to see their work load. Some the donkeys are old and sore and adults are allowed to ride them up and down the beach. Its often a horrible life for them. I doubt tbe donkey is laughing.
I used to go there for holidays with my parents from Kilmarnock in the fifties.It was hugely popular with Scots.The train left at some unearthly hour in the morning,and there was a long queue at the station.To kids like me,Blackpool was a magical place,full of exciting things to do and see.Go to the circus,shows,Pleasure Beach,The Tower(and fly round it in a biplane for ten bob.) Live in a B&B and eat "Brown Windsor Soup"I have been to many interesting places in the years since I was a boy and have greatly enjoyed them,but memories of a bygone Blackpool and happy holidays there are not forgotten.
Suddenly, I'm 7 years old again, going for a day to big, brash Blackpool from our home in the much quieter St Anne's, just down the coast. Thank you for the wonderful photos, commentaries and stirring up of beautiful if poignant memories.
