Re: Transgenderism - a sign of the times

Re: Celebrity Croakers 2019

I dropped Clive James for this year - he hung on remarkably well for somebody who's been on his last legs for an absolute age. RIP. DaveLovesDee and Schookololy both in the points today...

Re: Tories in chaos

This is a fabulous post. Thanks, I needed a good laugh today. You seem to be trying to imply here that you are not one of those "most people" with entrenched views. Yet in three or four posts...

Re: Tories in chaos

Haha! Oh, I wish... that'd be my idea of a perfect way to spend an otherwise unoccupied few hours. The peace! The solitude!

I listen to a lot of Radio 4 programming ("In Our Time" is always good...

Re: Tories in chaos

Not that Marie Antoinette is likely to have said this at all (there's quite well documented evidence to suggest that it's a much older phrase that was conveniently attributed to her). But if she had,...

Re: Tories in chaos

Oh, for crying out loud! No, she wasn't. Currie's claim (which led directly to a collapse in confidence in the egg market and the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of laying hens; and also led to...

Re: Free and fair elections for all...

Since you seem to have got off on slightly the wrong foot here, let's recap, shall we?

"The link below shows one example of how possible voter fraud can occur in general elections" is disingenuous...

Re: Tories in chaos

Way to try to walk back your previous comments. It won't wash.

You said that - despite the student's explanation that she had happened across the PM as she left her clinic, that she was somehow...

Re: Tories in chaos

No, I don't think you're misreading. I think you're deliberately obfuscating and misconstruing. In other words, I think you're part of the disinformation problem, here. You have no evidence to...

Re: Tories in chaos

Did you not actually watch the video(s)? She clearly said that she'd just finished a clinic. Presumably that means that her teaching 'group' (not sure why the inverted commas are needed, but...

Re: Tories in chaos

The semantics of whether a future doctor is in pre- or post-degree education is completely irrelevant to the general public. Medical students are trainee doctors, interchangeably.

And as for your...

Re: Tories in chaos

Which both I and Maclian have answered, directly and succinctly. Let me recap and expand in an effort to ensure you pay attention to the argument and not to the character of the person making it.

Re: Winter 2019/20 It's here

I shovelled on Tuesday morning. There wasn't quite enough to justify getting the machine out, but it was still hard on the snow-shovelling muscles that hadn't had a workout since last March... about...

Re: Tories in chaos

I get the impression you're being deliberately obtuse here, Scamp. It seems quite clear to most of us that what Maclian is concerned about is the availability and use of DISinformation, deliberately...

Re: President Trump

You could have left out all the other words except the ones in bold. Then this nonsense word-salad post might have made some sort of sense.

Re: Don Cherry and curtain fabric

To be clear, The Beaverton is a satirical/spoof news site. To the best of my knowledge, Fabricland is not actually filing for bankruptcy protection. Don Cherry was renowned for wearing clothes made...
