Jacob Rees-Mogg: Is he right to ban these words? (Yes, he is.)
He brutally dealt with "due to", but that was the only way to stop the widespread abuse.
Good man, no comma after 'end'.

EU supports Coventry business park. Funny old world.

Category: Unlocking Growth PotentialTo deliver Coventry’s new business district, funding was secured through the Regional Growth Fund and the European Union Regional Development Fund to construct a 100m wide bridge deck over Coventry ring road providing a level public boulevard to the station, which was previously cut off from the rest of the city centre.

I didn't know that Norge had such a large army.

It doesn't matter how big their army is, but how big you think it is! Seriously, their courage and virtue helped defeat the Germans no less than a big army would.

Unfortunately, the efforts of the Heroes of Telemark were for nothing. After that Knut Haukelid joined the Kon Tiki expedition. Kats, did you go to the KT Museum n Oslo .. across the road from Viking Museum?

Of course! I went to Kon Tiki, Fram, Folkemuseum, ... I only was afraid to go to the craft beer tasting trip, or wasn't I...
And I actually was in Drøbak!

Que? They prevented Germany from bringing back a boatload (so to speak) of deuterium oxide, which just might have enabled them to develop a nuclear weapon. Or not. That we can’t and won’t know. But I don’t think it was for nothing.

Did you go to a karaoke bar with the Collector and sing Smells Like Teen Spirit?

I doubt that. Manhattan Project was a costly and massive endeavour. The Germans simple weren't able to afford it.
