  1. I just hope he does his job with the best interests of his constituents in mind, which I'm sure he will, and doesn't get sucked into the "Westminster bubble".
  2. Not to be sold separately from an alcoholic drink?
  3. Well I'd much rather live in Warrington than London! The fact that all my belongings are in Warrington might have something to do with it mind
  4. Nothing new here Geoff, it's been going on for donkey's years.
  5. It might not to you but this is what you said: "It wasn't me who mentioned the "PC gawwn maaad " lot first asperity" So what I'm trying to point out is that you seem to be very upset by people who mention "PC gone mad". So some people hold that view, so what? No need to get your knickers in a twist about it "old fruit" (how very quaint ).
  6. I know you didn't Toggert1, but you seem to be mightily upset that other people do for some reason!
  7. Togger1, this started off as a light hearted thread about the latest Dr Who, but you seem intent on turning it into a crusade about "the PC brigade" whoever they're supposed to be. You seem to be one of those people who looks for offence in everything.
  8. Douglas Adams described it in "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe". It's like the Big Bang only opposite - if you see what I mean
  9. Who let the dogs out? Why do eggs come packaged in a flimsy paper container, but new scissors come packaged in thick plastic you need scissors to open?
  10. Professor Stanley Unwin interviews Bill and Ben (the Flower Pot Men) https://youtu.be/Bfe4RwkNB5I
  11. Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned? Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and it just takes 75-100 years to fully work. Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty. True! Your future self is watching you right now through memories. If you replace "W" with "T" in "What, Where and When", you get the answer to each of them. Many animals probably need glasses, but nobody knows it. Anybody have any thoughts like this?
  12. You would think that Corbyn would be all over this like a rash.
  13. Of course it could be that the BBC wants to reduce its wage bill. Peter Capaldi is being paid between £200,000 and £249,000 pa, and as everyone knows female actors always get paid less than their male counterparts..............................................
  14. Apparently a lot of them set up their own "media companies" which the BBC pays for their "services". This, of course, means that they can arrange their tax affairs so that the bulk of tax paid is at the corporation tax rate rather than the PAYE rate. These same people then go on TV bleating about tax avoidance/evasion.
  15. A very interesting interview I thought: https://youtu.be/4lwnoOowz7A
