I have at least tried to clarify things, Troll - e.g., "Snow had fallen, snow on snow" (Rossetti, In the Bleak Mid Winter)..."On land dusty to tread" (me, above)...if you check the temperature in Bethlehem over Christmas it will be about 10 to 15 degrees celsius.

Thanks for that, WAV.

From HERE:

As small as Israel is, the climate varies greatly from north to south. Our favorite times to go are March-April (wildflower season) and September-October. The Negev desert forms the southern two-thirds of the country, and summer in the Negev can be too hot to enjoy (temperatures above 100 F/37 C). It's possible to see desert sights in the summer if you go sightseeing early in the day. It can get quite wet and cold during the winter (you might even see a white Christmas in Jerusalem or Bethlehem).

Looks like Christina might have been bang on the nail...

WAV Ignorance is no defence.

Your certificates do not qualify you to pontificate about folk music, instruments, English history and most other subjects that you pronounce on.

Your Australian citizenship does not qualify you to speak on my behalf.

Your xenophobic postings do not qualify you to speak on behalf of the Christian religion.

Mudcat members include many of real scholarship. Some of these members have proffered the hand of friendship, and the guidance of the sage. Sadly you have repeatedly rejected both.

Eric - I don't loathe WAV. I don't like his posts, and I do wish he'd try to improve his education and understanding.

"Lizzie, why are you the only one to speak up for WAV ? is it because you are so much alike ?"

I speak up against verbal bullying eric. Am I like WAV? Well, obviously you choose to think so.

In reality of course, I couldn't be more different. I disagree with his outlook on immigration, as I've said *all way through* this thread, but which you've chosen to completely ignore, for your own reasons.

There is one thing I do agree with him over, which is that open discussion about immigration (in any country imo) should be allowed to take place without total hysteria breaking out, because you need to ensure that the people who are coming to live in another country can support themselves, or if there is a strong reason they cannot, then you need to ensure that the country concerned is able to support them, both financially and from an infrastructure point of view.

"I keep promising myself I won't respond to yours and his inane drivel but aaaaggghh both of your lack of understanding of anything to do with traditional music/instruments/song/ENGLAND infuriates me."

Lack of understanding?

You mean, that I don't and won't agree with your views, I assume.

There were 5, as I recall, David. They were on the BBC news today. One of them was saying that rather than cut VAT, the Government should have bought up old housing stock, done it up and then rented it out at low, affordable rents, to those who need it, as he thought that would have kick started the housing market again. (I doubt it)

I've a friend who rents a small terraced house in Sidmouth, at the cost of near on £700 a month. Er...not that many people down here earn £700 a month these days. Our wages are either dead on, or barely above the minimum wage, down here in the West Country So that rent comes out of Housing Benefit, along with the rents of hundreds of thousands of others, which is costing the country a small fortune..or more than likely a HUGE fortune

Things have been going down the Swanny for the last two decades or so in my eyes...it's just all beginning to hit the fan now.

Good to see the Bishops finally getting off their backsides though, and taking to shouting from the rooftops about a few things. They should have been doing it years back, been far too weak for far too long.

Although, correct me if I'm wrong, but..hasn't the Church of England got masses of property themselves? And didn't they invest some of their money in Viagra, shortly before it burst onto the medical scene?
(I'm sure there are a few jokes there, but I'm on my best behaviour, so....) ;0)

A Rise in the Church of England



"The Church of England has a worldly interest in financial markets. Its investments in shares, property and other interests earned 144.6 million pounds (US$268 million) in 2007, the Church Commissioners reported.

The Church Commissioners administer some 5.6 billion pounds (US$10.4 billion) in assets."

From Don: "P. S. Lizzie, not everyone here is a bully...."

You are quite right, Don. I apologise if I insulted anyone who came on here purely to have a discussion with David and to try to get him to see another way. I wasn't actually including those people when I was raging, but I didn't make the distinction, which was wrong of me.

It's the deeply personal attacks that get to me so.

Yes, Spaw, you too are correct, although I got caught up in replying to a torrent of abusive posts about me. I should have let them just stand and given no reply, but hey, that is very hard to do when you are the one under attack. It's one of the reasons these threads get to me, because it does bring out the same group of people who've done similar things to me, and I can assure you, it doesn't feel good. I don't like others having to endure it, but I can see that maybe David isn't that upset by it all, else he'd not keep starting threads which are of exactly the same nature.

I've no problems with his poems, which he obviously loves writing. I've no problem with his love of England.

Where we differ is that I feel that England belongs to everyone who loves her, no matter where they come from, what colour they are, or religion.

I'll leave this thread to those who love it now, for whatever reasons they may be...but I'd like to leave it with some beautiful words about England, from Ralph McTell:

Ralph McTell - 'England' - Youtube


ENGLAND

Ralph McTell

What is it about you, makes me feel this way?
When I'm leaving you, when I'm coming home
I'm lost for words to say.
And I know your faults and failures,
And the troubles that you've been through.
But it's more about what happens now
And what were coming to.

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through her city streets,
And the sun that shines on England
Well it lifts the heart in me.

What is it about you, that took men into war?
Rows and rows of crosses: Who remembers why what for?
The corners of these foreign fields,
The dust in them concealed.
Out of sight but not out of mind,
Don't you know that England feels?

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through the city streets.
The rain that falls on England
Well it washes care from me.

England, oh England
England, oh England
England, oh England

Don't make this out a battle hymn or a song of victory.
It's just a way to try to say what England means to me.
And our accents and our colours change
From the city to the farmland
From the moorland to the mountain,
From the river to the sea.

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through the city streets
The rain that falls on England
Well it washes care from me.

England, oh England
England, oh England
England, oh England

From the rolling road to the winding lane,
From the field to factory,
From summer's haze to winter's glaze,
And all the colours in between.
It's a stillness in the evening.
It's the heartbeat that I'm feeling.
Fron Cornwall to Northumberland,
From the Pennines to the sea.

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through the city streets.
The rain that falls on England
Well it washes care from me

England, oh England
England, oh England
England, oh England

I've no problems with his poems, which he obviously loves writing. I've no problem with his love of England.

It might be worth pointing out (again) that WAV retired from versification some time ago. Now content to rest on his laurels, the current phase of his Life's Work (from now on presumably) is the promotion of this hoary canon in the conviction that it contains sacred truths and answers to all humanity's ills. So no real love of writing there at all really, which I'd say is as specious as his love of England, of which he has demonstrated no clear understanding nor appreciation, rather a highly conditional & racist version of how he thinks it should be.

The only bully on this thread is WAV himself, promoting his brutal law of ill-conceived absolutes backed up by the divinely appointed authority of his own arrogance and superiority whereby he seeks to tell the rest of us how to live our lives.

What I can judge is what you post on this forum and elsewhere. Many of your posts are in my view bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynist, mistaken, ill-conceived, lacking understanding, lacking research, lacking talent.

If you have a message, or even an opinion, does it not concern you that so many intelligent people misunderstand you? Perhaps that says more about your communication skills than your various certificates.

Lol! Indeed, here's to far more important things...
And in case anyones interested in edificating themselfs on English Culture, there's not one but *two* examples on telly this very afternoon!

The thoroughly pants sequal (that I'll probly grudgingly watch anyway) to the wonderful ("Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women!") 'Conan the Barbarian' on tonight too. Why do they always put the pants sequal on!? Huff!

I repeatedly get accused of repetition but, just after I mention about 40 countries I ENJOYED visiting, you again call me "xenophobic" and "racist".

It's not your brief period of shoe-string tourism that brands you as a racist, WAV - rather your insane belief that England was a more Engish place 50 years ago and your scapegoating of immigrants for all society's ills.

the bishops also mentioned loss of our family values, etc.

Which have little to do with your bachelor lifestyle, one would have thought.

I'm not sure what changes more frequently: your nickname, our weather, or the opinions in your posts (read, e.g., what you've said on Christianity since my last weekly walkabout)

Change is a good thing, WAV - to wake each new dawn to a whole set of problems & possibilities. I realise of course this must be difficult to someone as mired in their own absolutist bullshit as you are, but I was born a pluralist, with a yen for option (rather than opinion, which is anathema to us Gnostics), and thus are my passions inspired and motivated. However, my feelings on religion have been more or less consistent since the age of 7 when I realised that one could love religion without being in any way religious - especially the cultural manifestations of pre-Reformation Roman Catholicism which now languish in the hands of the Church of England.

"In your head I'm sure you're a reasonable, pleasant fellow who loves his fellow man; in your head I'm sure that your beliefs are the salvation of the world."

A tickle under the chinny-winny for WAV . . .

"Many of your posts are in my view bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynist, mistaken, ill-conceived, lacking understanding, lacking research, lacking talent."

. . . then whack! A kick in the balls. That's got to hurt.

I tell you what WAV, I wouldn't bend over if I were you.

Next episode: Fish in a Barrel! Pow!

It would if WAV had balls; either that or he's particularly impervious. One is reminded of:

There should be a lot more respect for the likes of Alec Salmond and a lot less for the likes of Gordon Brown.

Troll/IB/Sedayne/etc. - why didn't you just say: "I get confused, and that's why I've struggled with formal study"?
