Re: Ryanair SUCKS

So many great things have happened since Brexit.
Name three.
Name two
Eurovision second place!

Ladies soccer!!

If you want a third then not groveling to Putin. But to be fair that’s more about British character than about the EU.

Re: Ryanair SUCKS

So many great things have happened since Brexit. And few of the crazy predictions of doom came true. But who could have foreseen how much it would annoy O'Leary? Probably everyone, he will froth at the mouth whatever. But it's still a pleasure to watch.

I assume she's a parody, no real per...

Re: UK going to the dogs

Not sure of the relevance to anything but I’ve always found chimney sweeps to be excellent value for money.

I have a 97.5% success with plumbing joints. It turns out that that is not good enough.

Something I never thought I’d say, does anyone else think there’s too much lesbian action on TV and in the movies at the moment?

Re: UK going to the dogs

A graduate premium never materializes  for many outside of Oxbridge . Most will never pay back their loans, and they  could have been  better off doing an apprenticeship. There is a reason why Tony Blair’s son  now makes millions  getting school leavers not to fulfil his father’s dream. A lot of pe...

Who should I vote for?
