    I use white vinegar mixed with washing powder, when I remember to clean the drum. It doesn’t smell.

     

    Which is more eco friendly out of powder, liquid, tablets?

    I might try paper bags. Not sure how things fair in the freezer. I did see silicone bags, but reviews weren’t great. They break easily, although supposedly reusable.

    No. What do the clothes smell like?

    Yes, depending on how cheaply we can do that. It could be good for developing countries if we trade with them. Back to my dilemma of fair trade vs the environment.

    Brexit might teach us to be self sufficient.

    Not all artists should and do try to save the planet or its inhabitants, but thy can still be giants.  There aren’t any.  Music isn’t in the same place as it used to be and I’m not talking about the standard.

    Who will still be filling stadiums and arenas whilst charging astronomical prices in 30 years time? Errmmmm…

    Sadly, greed and selfishness gets in the way. I don’t know why anyone needs to gather that much money. You can be wealthy and never have to worry again, without gathering it in the vast quantities some are and then avoiding their tax responsibilities.

     

    Both major nor political parties tax heavily. Those on the left tax directly. In my view, I know it’s gone already, I know where it’s going and I contribute what I can afford.

    I think if you read up on subjects you should read a range of views and perspectives and apply your own experiences and thoughts to it all. I understand where you’re coming from when you say reading and following like sheep. That’s the problem.

    This latest wave of feminists is off putting for us. We just want to empower men and women.

     

    Unfortunately, I find people on the left at times worse than those on the right for dogmatism and being extremely condescending. They seem to think they have the moral high ground. Not all of us, of course.

    It was on Twitter. He responds on there.

     

    I addressed abuse, he didn’t respond and didn’t respond To anybody else’s comments on abusive relationships.

    Apparently mediation is virtue signalling. Wow!

    There are those who have taken it to mean man hating and women’s rights above men’s. I’m with you on equality and equal rights for men and woman.

     

    Such a shame it has taken the direction it has, it’s not what it’s about and causes people to hate feminists. I’m not THAT kind of feminist, I’m one of the old sense, like you.

     

    Austerity has affected women more because of the jobs woman traditionally do, because of period poverty and the roles women take on these days, trying to work and still look after the children.

    Agree with that. They’re the most vile bunch ever. Not too hot many of the Labour Party, but they’re not hateful like this lot. Sack everyone, except for Mairhi Black (SNP) and start again 🤣.

    90s for me. Some good bands around in 2000s. Loved music of early to mid 80s, it went downhill from there.

    I was really talking about poorer countries exporting, rather than importing.
