I haven't tried that yet but have smelt it being served in a restaurant I play in occasionally. I think next time I'll stop in earlier for a bit of dinner first.

That was the point. A little humour…or humor?

Just making sure. I don't care which one you use, as long as it's funny.

So, for our BE members who were so worried that upholding Parliamentary sovereignty meant that they wouldn't get their article 50, Corbyn has issued a three-line whip to vote "yes".

Only a little blood on the carpet over that so far. See? The constitution isn't so bad, is it.

Yeah you can't really get them over there or at least I've never seen them. I've never even seen British-style kebabs in Toronto are there are pretty large Greek, British and Turkish communities there.

There might be some places that do them, you can usually find most things if you look hard enough.

Gyros do the job in the meantime.

I ducking love a good kebab. Best I've ever had was Afghani. Unreal rocket fuel.

I'd never tried Shawarma until I moved to Toronto, then it became my favourite take-out.

I've even found a great restaurant near me in the UK that does great ones too,

Have to admit I cant think of any of the key attributes of what constitutes a European being those that would be attributed to Turkey since the Byzantines left Anatolia. Culture ? History ? Language ? Religion ? Political and social values ?

Wasn't Turkey once called the sick man of Europe?

"Strong consumer spending helped the UK's economy to grow faster than expected at the end of last year.
The economy grew by 0.6% in the October-to-December period, the same rate as in the previous two quarters, according to an initial estimate from the Office for National Statistics.

THE FIGURE INDICATES THAT THE FEARED ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN FOLLOWING THE BREXIT VOTE HAS NOT MATERIALISED."

True, but at that time controlled a lot more territory in Europe in current Albania, Bulgaria, etc.

Its good news, what is your point.
Exports to the EU due to free market access continue to grow.
EU membership is good for the UK economy.

Also good to see that the UK economic growth rate continues to outstrip the overall Eu rate,
as does the U.K. unemployment rate, by quite a margin.
