  1. Victory is always sweeter when it's over Spurs. And how good is Caglar?
  2. Funny that. You're a new poster and my AV software says it's a malicious site.
  3. You ask @Suzie the Fox really nicely. Hi, Suz.
  4. They are not the same team and neither are we. We have nothing to fear from these.
  5. I spent some time travelling with a pair of white Rhodesian brothers who had fled the country shortly after independence, after their entire family was slaughtered by Mugabe's 'freedom fighters'. Things are never quite as they seem.

    Brexit!

    As far as I'm aware there is no such restriction elsewhere. Unless you know differently?

    Brexit!

    Tbh, I don't think it is; it's a typical British half-assed compromise. If it's to be legalized people need to be treated as adults and allowed to make an informed choice over what they want to smoke, otherwise they'll just continue to buy it elsewhere. To put it into perspective, it's like repealing the alcohol prohibition laws they had in the US by just making shandy legal because whisky is too strong.

    I'm not keen on the 'limits on potency' bit - it kind of defeats the object, imo. People smoke to get high and if that's not happening there will still be a thriving black market.

    Jo Johnson. Is this the first time a politician has resigned in order to spend less time with his family?
  10. Judging by the amount of time he spends on here, I think he's on the dole...
  11. If only you knew a lawyer on here...
  12. I might be wrong (yeah, unlikely, I know) but wasn't the CoE made exempt from gay marriage laws?
  13. At least lawyers are cheap...

    Brexit!

    The smart move, from Corbyn's perspective, is to delay an election as long as possible; Bozo is waaaaaay out of his depth, which becomes more apparent with every time he opens his mouth. He was shielded from public scrutiny during the leadership contest but now he is exposed to the full glare as PM. Give him enough rope to hang himself would be my strategy.

    Bozo out! That was just regarding one issue (hold-ups in customs) and was the opinion of one man (which is contrary to the opinion of everybody else in the retail world).

    None of that should surprise you, Stan - you're talking about a man who wrote this (about Africa): "The problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge any more... Consider Uganda, pearl of Africa, as an example of the British record. … the British planted coffee and cotton and tobacco, and they were broadly right... If left to their own devices, the natives would rely on nothing but the instant carbohydrate gratification of the plantain. You never saw a place so abounding in bananas: great green barrel-sized bunches, off to be turned into matooke. Though this dish (basically fried banana) was greatly relished by Idi Amin, the colonists correctly saw that the export market was limited... The best fate for Africa would be if the old colonial powers, or their citizens, scrambled once again in her direction; on the understanding that this time they will not be asked to feel guilty."

    Disturbingly, that's probably a better idea than any of our politicians will ever come up with. #voteyorkie

    Brexit!

    "After a couple of weeks... or months" Not really very reassuring, is it?

    Brexit!

    MPs give bill to stop no-deal Brexit second reading by majority of 29 MPs have voted to give the bill to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October a second reading by 329 votes to 300 - a majority of 29. That majority is two bigger than the one last night (when the SO24 motion was passed by 328 votes to 301).
