  1. This will definitely happen, just like the airport on the Thames estuary, the 'oven-ready' Brexit deal, the world-beating track and trace, the check's in the post, I won't come in your..
  2. Really? Would a moat round Pully be such a bad thing?
  3. I don't think one can 'raise' a house to the ground, unless it's on Tracy Island or something....
  4. He's always been a torchbearer
  5. Since they had absolutely no idea what would be included in the deal they would have needed the skills of Nostradamus to have prepared the paperwork - or maybe they should have asked you! https://news.sky.com/story/exports-to-the-eu-have-plummeted-by-68-since-brexit-12211169
  6. It seems our elected representatives (mostly) couldn't give a stuff.

  7. Of course, people wittering on about 'bloat' and how wonderful the private sector is at everything contributed to government throwing out the baby with the bathwater, as it were.

  10. stratum - singular, strata - plural, stratae -mistake. Otherwise, you're right.

  12. Vent's dummies usually have hollow heads, as do many of our politicians.
  13. You could have 'saved' another £320 by not buying them at all, and still only broken even
  14. Yet you saw fit to give her your patronising and unnecessary endorsement, which was hardly a compliment. After I pointed out she didn't need your validation, you then posted again, saying that she didn't. I observed that that was my original point. You then became further confused, or perhaps you didn't understand the irony in my original comment. No matter.
  15. Nah - you're just wrong. But I do think they should speak clearly
  16. I think someone's just told him you can buy shirt collars to fit
  17. I take it they didn't stare at you, then
