Saw two very heavy American planes and heavy duty helicopter fly overhead yesterday - the propellers made our office windows shake (!) Looked them up on the internet later on and found out the planes were carrying members of the US marine corps presidential guard and the helicopter was full of American secret service on their way to RAF Fairford. So I guess President Obama's plane will land there and I've heard rumours that he's going to be helicoptered on to HMS Duncan in Cardiff bay where he will visit the Assembly. Lots of police activity out there, including police motorcades rehearsing for something, so I guess this figures...?

Well it would, wouldn't it? Or it wouldn't be a countdown.

Funny you should mention that Dai, not strictly a local sighting, but have just seen half a dozen of what look to be bomb detection devices in Cardiff bay near the Assembly, guarded by a very suave looking chap in black suit, tie and crisp white shirt - who'd definitely pass for a stereotypical FBI agent in a Hollywood movie. Plenty of overhead activity at the moment, too. No sightings of enemy aliens as of yet, however - more's the pity;)

Sorry to point out the bl**ding obvious but NATO was formed to resist the Soviet Union.
The Soviet Union no longer exists so why are we still paying for it?

I do hope all the chest bangers on here worshiping NATO will be the first to volunteer to go to Ukraine if the West succeeds into goading Russia to war- my guess is most of you are chicken hawks.

Don't forget Joe Biden's son was appointed head of Ukraine's oil and gas company weeks before the Ukraine crisis kicked off- By Crimea choosing to go with Russia he has lost 78% of Ukraine's claims in the Black Sea. That gotta smart :)

They are all saying it's Newport , now. But some are being derogatory like that cheeky begger from Nigeria. Makes me go all defensive. It's like someone slagging off your useless waste of space family/family member/husband. You can do it, but by 'eck no-one else is going to !

Helicopters started flying over Celtic Manor at 0415 this morning, they swing over my house and go in to land at the Celtic ( noisey t***s ). Won't be sorry to see the back end of this, I did not know we had that many helicopters in the country.

You can always put notes in the chest bangers bags saying "I know what you did". and "You murdered her"

I wouldn't complain if you blew up Newport with all the Chav's still in there, just like you did with the Asylum:)

Then again when they blew up the old Newport car park it rained hypodermic needles so perhaps not

Down here on the Newport riviera,(Brown muddy river indeed! It's more of a taupe colour) The dawns and sunsets can be quite spectacular if you are about, should impress the crew of that bloomin' great aircraft carrier no end. Mr Jolly sounds very bitter and twisted, it's the citizens which make the character of this city not the other way around.
