Re: And there off

... And I suspect Corbyn is also banking on that. As another commentator elsewhere has said, he is waiting for the Tories to implode, thinking there's a chance Labour might get elected in the aftermath. To be honest, I might be tempted to change my mind and vote Brexit if it meant getting rid of th...

Re: I must be old

The use of the word "gasoline" suggests this is an American post....... They didn't even have chlorinated chicken back then and any discussion of hormones and cattle could get a cowboy arrested.... Maybe. But tea, when did the Americans drink tea? And pizza? That was commonplace in the US. Perhaps ...

Re: I must be old

I have no recollection whatsoever (I'm not that bloody old), but I would sat that; one, seaweed has been a recognised food in certain parts of south Wales for centuries two, Elizabeth David published her books in the early 1950s, so at least some people knew there was more to food three, the first c...

Re: And there off

,,, But how many Tory voters will be as turned off as the millions who are pro Remain and deserted the party at the last General Election ... Err, that ain't right. The Conservative Party got 42.4% of the vote in 2017. That's the highest they've got since 1983, and 2.3m more votes than they got in ...

Re: And there off

Is it just me, or do they look like cartoon characters? Bojo the clown, Gove the ventriloquist's dummy, Rory Stewart the Gollum impersonator, Humpty-Sajid..... and as for Hunt.... I think it's just you. :) A clown is a person, a ventriloquist's dummy is an object, Gollum is a character from a novel...

Re: Rock on Rockall......

I'm not sure that foreign policy is a devolved matter, so apart from whingeing it's hard to see what they can do. The claim to Rockall is based on a 1955 UK landing....... but this claim is disputed and has never been established in international law..... so, it's sabre-rattling by a government tha...

Re: Rock on Rockall......

,.... Given the current state of the Royal Navy, I guess they're in with a chance! The Royal Navy doesn't take orders from Holyrood. :) No indication of what the UK government think of all this, Perhaps they have actually read the Common Fisheries Policy? https://ec.europa.eu/fisheries/cfp/fishing_...
