  1. John Cooper Clarke's joke - "Imagine how high the sea level would be if it wasn't full of sponges" I feel we've gone slightly off topic here.
  2. Cue slow news day Daily Express cancer story.
  3. Some of the EU positions on the trade deal with the USA are protectionist for sure, but the Americans have been and (in particular) under Trump will be just as bad.
  4. Banter aside, a friend from Somerset told me that friends of hers in the industry blamed the EU for the demise of small to mid sized farms, favouring the larger commercial ones, and assumed the government would continue with subsidies and would apply them more fairly. I must admit that I'm a bit worried about letting our food supply industry live or die in the global markets.
  5. Some voted with self-interest in mind (remain and leave), some trusted the government after Brexit on the grounds that they would have to support farming whatever and some just didn't care
  6. You didn't look hard enough. How do you think Wales and the South West ended up with pro-Leave results? http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/farmers-brexit-regret-bregret-funding-common-agricultural-policy-a7163996.html
  7. The interesting quote I read was that this would good for consumers because American chicken was 21% cheaper than Uk chicken. Same with beef, vegetables, tomatoes etc., mainly due to the use of techniques we should be sceptical about, plus economies of scale, GM usage etc. I wonder what the Brexit supporting farmers think about this?

  9. Our juniors are more than happy playing in summer, just a shame it's in Yorkshire and not in a vibrant Midlands setup. No it hasn't! There's two teams left standing! It could be the first ever league won by the team who can turn up every week.
  10. IMO the greatest ever. Personal taste and all that. Craig Cash's sitcom about the non-league football club (Rovers) was very good. There was a scene where his character was attempting a fish finger eating challenge that had me in stitches. Car Share lost the plot in the second series.
  11. Mrs Brown's Boys anyone? We are truly in a golden age. Actually I really like Count Arthur Strong but i can see why it doesn't appeal to everyone. The "Soupover" episode is surreal comedy genius, as you might expect from the co-creator of Father Ted. (My answer to The Young Ones is that it was very much a sitcom, albeit subverted in some clever ways. Ben Elton acknowledges that he was brought on the classic sitcoms and it was just his and Rik Mayall/Lise Mayer's take on it.)
  12. I think those comments mean they don't take women seriously.
  13. JK Rowling - " "Lot of folks who have never cared about Dr Who before are suddenly very concerned. Maybe we should announce that climate change is a woman."
  14. He'll be back
  15. This is what you need to do to be able to live permanently in Belgium - do we do this? http://www.expatica.com/be/visas-and-permits/EU-EEA-and-Swiss-citizens-moving-to-Belgium_443311.html
