It has to be a record.

We are managing to have an argument about that most inoffensive of organisations, the Commonwealth

I think we should start a thread to argue about The English Speaking Union, or maybe the WI.

Yes -----why does there have to be argument ---? Why not just a 'celebration' which is what yesterday was meant to be!

What about women's day? That's also important, no? After all, women outnumber Brits by orders of magnitude of orders of magnitude.

Do you not support democracy?

See post 49-----Replying to your post regarding Kenya and supporting an award that was a combination of International Women's day and Commonwealth Day.

Maybe we need a referendum to decide what we are going to argue about?

Non-binding is more interesting then we can argue over the results and how its non-binding so we should do something else.

Maybe anyone who is 1 year or longer on the site and posted over 300 times, totally random made up numbers.

I see that cakeism is rearing its ugly head If we were talking about a carrot cake, issues such as consistency and fluffiness wouldn't be a problem. But no, the poor Victoria sponge once again attracts all the hate. You should all be ashamed of yourselves and I'm seriously thinking of complaining to the Moderators. Or flouncing.

We haven't seen a good flounce since Piers Morgan.....

Oh, and Farage last week. It seems flouncing's the new normal
