Re: Goodbye Titanic

While it's sad to see the end of yet another industry, in truth it died in 2003 when the last ship was built. It was also a bastion of Orange hegemony, where the chances of a Catholic getting a job were akin to a snowflake in Hell. In the tragedy that is Northern Ireland, it was a prime example of h...

Re: What have you never eaten that is mainstream?

I've never eaten tripe either, but the people in Oporto are known as "tripeiros" or tripe-eaters and there are dozens of recipes (I'm told). Supposedly it all started in 1415 when the fleet destined to conquer Ceuta left port and took all the fresh meat, leaving only the offal for the population to ...

Re: "I don't need to hear from another white man thank you very much!"

I wouldn't trust any of them to collect my bins - but Boris will just lie as he always does and claim to have great things in London (avoiding any talk of buses or bridges). Hunt has the eyes of a man I wouldn't want behind me, Gove is seriously up himself, Javid thinks the Irish government can be b...
