  1. The UK really doe get an unfair bad wrap from some but as that chart shows, we're not that bad. What the climate zealots will say though is that the UK has the headquarters of many of the top polluting companies, but if they weren't h3adquartd here they'd only be headquarted somewhere else.
  2. Industrialists eventually realised that there is little point in producing things if most people couldn't consume what was being produced if they were at work all the time, hence time off.
  3. Sigh, I can't be bothered just now but it isn't as simple as this.
  4. Or the Sheffield Eagles rugby team.
  5. After looking on YouTube recently, for nostalgia purposes, at some old Megadrive and SNES games, I must say that many of them are not as good as I remember.
  6. She is one of the fortunate people that get paid for indulging in their hobby, its not "work" to her in real sense as such.
  7. Don't perpetuate racial stereotypes and bleat about racism.
  8. I've seen their supporters using the term, in YouTube comments etc.
  9. Those congresswomen have been dubbed "the squad." From Urban Dictionary: Crew, posse, gang: an informal group of individuals with a common identity and a sense of solidarity. The term is a bit flashy and is more likely to be heard in hip-hop lyrics than in spoken conversation. You step to me, and my whole squad will come down on you. Its a shame that a group of black women have to be characterised as a "squad."
  10. Are you referring to " the squad"? in a black community context that term is an unhelpful stereotype and they and their supporters would do well to avoid using it. As for your Brexit comment, you're embarrassing yourself as there was obviously even lees support for remain.
  11. I don't recall Trump "taking a knee" during the national anthem at any time do you?
  12. I would suggest that MP's should mainly concern themselves with matters to do with this country.
  13. I can barely believe that someone who seems to be an intelligent person such as yourself cannot see that remain got even less support.
  14. You may be technically correct with Trump but that is the anomaly in their electoral college system. As for Brexit, of the people that participated in the vote, numerically more people voted to Leave than to stay. What is it about that you find hard to grasp?
  15. This is going off topic but this reminds me of Irvin Patnick's interventions in the Hillsborough disaster; Hillsborough wasn't his patch so why was he involved?
  16. There are plenty of white "progressives" in the US that seem to hate the country they live in, Trump invites them to go and live elsewhere too. Over the years many celebrities have threatened to leave the US because of Trump, pondering on a move to Canada. Never Mexico you'll notice. LOLZ!
  17. I think he was making a general point about anyone of any race that does nothing but criticize America, inviting them to go and live elsewhere if they don't like it, like that horrible poisonous creature Megan Rapinoe.
  18. Britain chose not to go into the Euro when the Euro came into being. I don't think a member state currently in the Euro could come out of it and remain a member state; and I believe a prerequisite of joining the EU now is adopting the Euro as your currency.
  19. There are "national sides" to Euro coins for the different member states, but I don't think there are individual people on them.
  20. Lol, I was right wasn't I? If we were in the Euro we couldn't celebrate Alan Turing by putting him on a bank note.
  21. Are there any notable examples of a Euro bank notes honouring/celebrating a particular person in a particular member state? I'm genuinely interested.
