Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

Eh, hello? She's an actress. The clips with which you find fault with are staged for national consumption. Is it any surprise if she looks OTT or whatever? What we see on our screens is not...

Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

I think Oak only pointed out that your opinion on Meghan is very poorly founded. None of us know her, so why not give her the benefit of the doubt?

Re: Prince Harry and Meghan ......

What are these blaring headlines? I'm not a tabloid reader so the only one I am aware of was the intital much reported "Straight Outta Compton" one. In any case, I don't think race enters the...

Re: Random stuff - the anything else thread

Bizarre that healthcare systems are so slow to implement simple tech solutions. We've only had online booking a couple of years, but you would think it could have been implemented ten years ago. ...

Re: Australia's burning

I bet it did. I imagine those tanks are swimming in bacteria (or more correctly, bacteria are swimming in those tanks!).

Re: Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn

Yes, thanks. No, I haven't seen those two yet. Might give the politics a wider berth given the way the country has voted.

Re: Among the Worlds Most Dire Paces: This California Homeless Camp

Yes, definitely high real estate prices are an issue too. The solution for those (without health issues) who can't afford a city/area is to move. Places and prices evolve.

Re: Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn

Somehow the "serious issues" never get to see the light of day though. If they were that "serious" shouldn't their be a numerated list of each allegation? Instead it seems to be a campaign of...

Re: Australia's burning

How old/dated is the water from the tank when it gets near to the end? Do you need to treat it to avoid any impurities etc?

Re: Among the Worlds Most Dire Paces: This California Homeless Camp

I'm calling BS on your BS calling. No doubt many priced-out Californian techies are moving to TX, but the article cites 44,000 homeless, and specifically references mental conditions. Homelessness is...

Re: How do you deal with Brexit friends

Do you think this the natural progression of things, as we hit middle age and beyond? It seems even more prevalent for expats, somehow, there being a dislocation or two in the past. I've noticed a...

Re: PM Boris

Precise commentary.

It's clear that the electorarate, after three fractious years, desperately want a simple solution and Johnson is offering that in spades.

As Europeans, I think we all retain some basic tenets. Even me.

Re: Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn

:) I wonder how many are predicted to return to the UK post-Brexit? I suppose it depends on healthcare arrangements.

Re: UK immigration post Brexit

Re: Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn

I've never fully understood Cape's term "carbon units" but hoi polloi typically refers to the masses, the kind of people that read the Sun or DE. As for "working class scum" that's a term you used,...
