Re: norway

I was trying to see if anyone would take the bait.
But it should be banned altogether. Contaminated meat (Sellafield, microplastics, etc.), I reckon.

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/cme-to-launch-block-cheddar-cheese-futures-2019-11-14 I confused myself yesterday morning during my customary FT breakfast read, where the headline seemed to suggest that it was time to block CME cheese futures.

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

If someone loses the job and can't find a new one, it probably means that their talent is not so much in demand in the specific market. I would advise to look elsewhere/better. Unemployment benefits are a social insurance scheme, which is not designed to support immigrants - certainly not in such n...

Re: Shuhada Street is red

And the small matter of having delegated the US  Middle East policy to a young Orthodox Jew whose only real world experience is in real estate development and sales. What could possibly go wrong with that?
Never mind that, think of the views and the skyline. It's a win-win.

Re: What is democracy?

You can easily tell whether someone is left or right wing. Look at their twitter posts. Do they mention Remembrance Sunday? It’s not 100% accurate, many Lefties are obliged to mention it, probably while holding their noses (e.g. politicians and the BBC). And it’s possible there are even a few decen...

Re: General Election 2019

Will the last person to leave the Labour Party please take down the swastika banners and fold them away neatly.
You are invoking Godwin's Law. Never a good sign. Looks as if you are getting a bit jittery?

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

I think talented people come to a country to contribute their talent to its socio-economic development, not to take welfare benefits. That's only 1 use case you seem to be hinting at. It's somewhat of a stock response.. I'm talking about e.g. a qualified migrant who pays tax etc. and through no fau...

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?
