Re: The "whatever happened to..." thread

Des...where have you got to?

It's been more than three months since he posted anything.

Is it just that after fifteen years he's done with Channels? I hope that's all it is.

Does anyone on this site besides MHD actually go to Amsterdam anymore. For that matter; does anyone on this site have interest in going to Amsterdam anymore.

So they canceled my flight 24 hours before takeoff. 6 hours later I was emailed a new itinerary. They booked me on a United flight with a 35 minute layover at Dulles in DC leaving in 10 hours.

Another implication of the deal signed is that it maintains thw GFA. The GFA allows that should a poll be called, the population of NI can take a vote to decide if they want a United Ireland.

And so it continues ~ BARCELONA this time.... Where next? A major Dutch city must be on the list I'm afraid. Dam Sq and / or Damrak are sitting ducks for van attacks I must admit that I have thought the same and wondered which street in which city it could/would be. But I do hope I'm wrong :-)

Re: MORE TERROR, MORE PAIN...

I think cops with less guns is a good idea but it wouldn't work in America. American cops refuse to engage in hand to hand combat because they're lazy and fat and it's to challenging for them to take perps on with their bare hands. They pull their weapon early now as it's easier and they don't want...

Re: MORE TERROR, MORE PAIN...

Question for the Britts, I understand your street cops still don't carry a gun and an officer had to defend herself with nothing but a baton during this last round of violence. Do you think it's time for all police to carry a gun to protect citizens in today's world? I can't speak for all of course...
