  1. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

    When I feel down, I watch the Blues Brothers (the original, not the sequel).   That probably doesn't help anyone else, but it's worked for me...
  2. Brexit: The fallout

      Actually Clarkson is in favour of another referendum (https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/entertainment/jeremy-clarkson-issues-foul-mouthed-summary-of-brexit-897845.html)
  3.   The Conservative membership seems to care about two things (well, three if you include crushing the most vulnerable), an ERG-approved Brexit and fox hunting.    Rory Stewart's voting history may show that he is very much a tow-the-party-line MP, but I think from his mannerisms he would have been a good compromise candidate. If he sticks to his word, he won't take a role in a Johnson Government so remains to be seen if his stock will rise now.
  4. With Raab, McVey, and Leadsom gone, at least that's the hard brexiteers out.   Not sure if Boris really would want to preside over a hard brexit since he has longed to be PM for such a long time, that would he really risk being the shortest serving Prime Minister ever?
  5. A new JP video, I will have to go and watch that now!   I've been impressed with most of what I've heard Rory Stewart say the last week. He seems the most statesman-like person out of all of them when it comes to public speaking.
  6. Brexit: The fallout

      Yes, it seems that only Boris can stop Boris. 
  7. What was your first car?

    In 1997 I bought A240VHS, a 1983 Ford Escort 1.3 Ghia in silver   Paid £600-£700 for it. I found it advertised in the Newshopper a local newspaper in South-East London. The advert described the car as having "all the usual Ghia refinements". 
  8. Brexit: The fallout

    I see all the headlines at the moment are about Trump saying access to the NHS would have to be on the table in a trade deal.   Not that surprising, since Daniel Hannan has been appearing on Fox News since 2009 calling the NHS a "60 year old mistake" and that it is the opposite of Thatcherite free market principles.
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    An interesting take on xenophobia and living in Britain post-referendum:-   https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/abroad/are-the-british-really-as-xenophobic-as-they-ve-been-made-out-to-be-since-brexit-1.3910892?mode=amp
  10.   I get bombarded by Facebook ads for things I already have, such as American Express Cards, N26 accounts, the Curve card. It's no less annoying!
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    This sort of follows on from watching the latest Stephen Fry video that someone posted on here.   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/may/28/uk-and-territories-are-greatest-enabler-of-tax-avoidance-study-says   Get ready for Singapore 2.0!
  12. Car air con specialist?

      Still available on the Halfords website for click 'n' collect:- https://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-fluids/air-con/ez-chill-auto-air-conditioning-recharge
  13. Brexit: The fallout

      Didn't he get called that on-air by a news anchor once?
  14. Brexit: The fallout

      Look at Gove squirming there!
  15. Brexit: The fallout

        I agree with this. He comes across as being the one decent candidate out of all of them.   Maybe Liz Truss as well.
