Re: The rather morbid celebrity RIP Thread.

Weather presenter Dianne Oxberry at only 51. Probably only those of you in the Northwest will know her. She looked so strong, a classic Lancashire lass. And she looked like she could be Nicko McBrain's sister.

Re: The rather morbid celebrity RIP Thread.

June Whitfield. She talks candidly about working with Tony Hancock and the tremendous pressure placed on the 'stars' of comedy shows, which she modestly claims never affected her, as she wasn't the star. She recalls how she handled Hancock's self-doubt and questioning of life which would present its...

Paddy Ashdown didn't always come across well on telly but his CV is outstanding. Probably the best leader the Lib-Dems have had.

Re: A free-for-all thread

Have you ever bought something on-line which wasn't quite as advertised and, when you request an exchange or refund, they tell you to send a photo of it? Is it necessary to do that? It never used to happen. Do they think the customer is imagining things or is it a tactic to make you not bother?

Vocabulary skills were used as a measure of crystallized intelligence, or the ability to use acquired skills, knowledge, and experience. Anothe...

I could live with that. But it assumes...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

Damn, too slow on the retraction :lol: I know the feeling. Here's a question for you:As it's confirmed that we can withdraw Article 50 penalty free, as few find May's deal any good; how would people feel about revoking art 50, actually thinking up a decent negotiating strategy before restarting the...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

For the purpose of this argument, the commission is ONLY responsible for initiating the legislative process. that's it. the passing of the laws is still in the hands of the parliament. and yes, its members are appointed, but they are appointed by democratically elected members of another EU institu...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

David Cameron should be fucking lynched for unleashing this shitpocalypse on the country. It was right to have a referendum given how much the EEC/EC/EU has changed since the last vote. What Cameron should have made clear was that the ref. was advisory and that it would have taken at least a 55% le...
