Monty Python only reactivates when John Cleese needs to pay for his next divorce. His words.

Re: Does the EU have Borderline Personality Disorder?

Where is Monty Python when you need them? Although, maybe we don’t need them. He is doing a perfectly splendid job of mocking himself.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So it’s all the fault of this Scott Adams. With Narcissists it’s best to walk away slowly (preferably backwards), no eye contact, and ignore. Do not give them their “narcissist supply.” It just encourages them.

Top holiday tip: Before going on a holiday cruise remember to identify as a woman, just in case your ship sinks.  You can always re-identify later.

A great age! Fart jokes, swearing like a trooper, pulling legs off spiders, etc. And that's just daddy.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

You don't think that perhaps Trump should be left to rant and ramble without being pursued for justice. I.e the means justifying the end. (As in trying not to split the US apart.)

List of 50 most influential UK artists in last 50 years. I've no idea who most of them are obviously. But I notice that Vivienne Westwood is in there but no Malcolm Mclaren.

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.
