    It deesnt come across as anything like “leavers”.... more like just the people at the bottom.... in which case it is incredibly patronising

    If you think I'm being patronising you clearly didn't understand what I wrote. Find an 11 year old and ask them to explain it to you. :rolleyes:

    I understood the same as others did, perhaps you should be clearer in the way you express yourself. It’s not the first time you’ve been “misunderstood”
    Not too worry

    To turn around a quote from D H Lawrence:
    What the mind doesn't understand, the eye doesn't see...

    I understand that

    ...and it's not the first time you've "misunderstood" what I've written.

    Which on balance is possibly more patronising. Keep at it, you're getting towards where your erstwhile mentor left off.

    But not having an 11YO to hand, I'll have to ask who is it you are quoting as referring to those guys as "little people"? And why do you not think that even referring to them in your own language as important is patronising? Why is, say, a waiter in a cafe on NMW not just as important as they are? Do explain this ranking of "importance" that is in your mind, so we can share.

    Isn't Mamiya an Abba song?

    Sorry if this is a repeat but I haven't red the thread.

    It's amazing what people throw away, and where. This is just the latest item dumped by this litter bin - others include a bag of old clothes and a broken perambulator! :eek:

    Many people would have put that on ebay for a fiver.

    Maybe that's just an overflow bin, or a baby bin standing next to its father? So many possibilities :D

    Just too lazy to taker to the dump. People do that around here with fridges etc, knowing the Irish Travellers will be round and take anything left out. Must admit, when we were rebuilding and had anything large, we made a lot of use of them as scavengers too. Just used to hang a sign on saying Please Take and it would be gone.

    My daughter did this with an old fridge. It didn't go, so she stuck a notice saying "for sale £25". It was nicked by the next morning.

    I recently discovered that 10% of the world's remaining active pagers are in the NHS.
