• Are kids/teens in Japan better behaved than kids/teens in the UK?

    If this is true, how much better behaved are they in Japan?. I find some of the kids' and teens' behaviour in the UK as out of control, disrespectful and rude.

They just don't seem to have values and respect anymore. Are Japanese children different? If this is true, in what way? In the UK, the children are now carrying knives and committing stabbings. They also talk behind people's backs about other people which is disrespectful. Is it true that children in Japan are more better brought up and raised in society than their peers in the UK?

    The extension of the Jubilee Line can start from Stratford then stop at Stratford International, Lea Bridge then diverts from the West Anglia Line and taking over the London Overground stopping at St James Street, Walthamstow Central, Wood Street, Highams Park and terminating at Chingford. What do you think?

  • What do you think about James Tomkins as a footballer? Do you think he is just an average footballer?

    He does have a few England international caps at senior level in 2011 and that's about it. He played for West Ham for a number of years and I have heard he was left out of the team several times for a few seasons. He now play for Crystal Palace which is just above the relegation zone.

  • Do you think I will be allowed to play for the national football team of Brunei?

    Lately I have written to the national football team of Brunei about whether I can be allowed to play for Brunei. I don't play football for a living not a professional either. However I am part Malaysian (despite Malaysia being a different country from Brunei). Do you think they will take me on and allow me to play in their national squad?

  • Do you think Cranham should have a London Underground station?

    The District Line terminates at Upminster. However there is a London Underground depot in Cranham. Tracks lead from Upminster to Cranham but trains only travel to the depot for non-passenger reasons.

He then said something to this lady next to him in his language which was not English. I couldn't understand what he was saying. The lady then turned around towards my direction and then laughed. The man then just raised his hand at me. I am aware that he said something about me to this lady which I couldn't understand as he was talking in his own language. I didn't do anything to him and don't know him at all. He knew very well that I was aware that something was said about me hence why he raised his hand at me. I think was Romanian. Do you think that was just plain rude of him to do that with just a lack of manners and respect in a public place? I am very annoyed and angry about what he did.

Lately, He asked me some money and I told him I needed to change my money from a bank note to coins. He then walked with me down the street and we had a good conversation together. Once i changed my money, I asked him "How much should I give you?". He then replied "Anything you can, it's up to you". So then I gave him £3. He then said he wouldn't mind having a coffee with me in the future. Why does he want to have a coffee with me in the future? I really like his courtesy and politeness. What's happening between me and him? he keeps asking me for money when I walk pass him. He is now asking money as much as £5.

    Last year, I was in a fast food restaurant and I ordered my meal in the restaurant. The guy who was serving me in the restaurant was British Asian in his 20s most probaly from Pakistani heritage. When he asked me whether I wanted salt and sauces with my meal, he kept addressing me as "my brother". For example; "Would you like some tomato ketchup with your meal my brother?" and also happened during other questions which he asked as part of my order. I am half South Asian and I am wondering why he addressed me as "my brother" when I am not his brother. Is it because I am appear to look Asian I am in my 20s.? Is it how some young Muslim or any Asian guys in the UK address Asian guys. I am not angry but I am just curious to know your views. Many thanks.

  • Do you think James Tomkins is a good footballer?

    He now plays for Crystal Palace and that team is now at the bottom of the Premier League table. What do you think about him as a defender? I think he is quite average. Why can't he make it to the England squad? If Crystal Palace gets relegated at the end of the season, what do you think will happen to him? Why do you think West Ham sold him?

    I have not been able to find any work since late 2015. I have been trying ever since. I have recently been referred on to the Work Programme and they are just useless. Today, the man who works at the Work Programme gave me a letter asking me to attend a customer service course for two weeks which may make me help me to get a job in a customer service role in Nando's or Pizza Hut etc. This useful meaningless course is mandatory and if I don't attend, my benefits will be stopped. Do you think this is stupid for me to attend this as I am 24 nearly 25 and I have been seeking work in the admin sector....Do you think this is another reason why the UK is a stupid crap country just like we have an unfair education system and some of us have to do jury service without our choice?
