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.)

Re: I'm a Punkrocker Yes I Am

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.

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.

Re: Inflation question

He and the FT are both noise.  Offhand, I can't think of any positive indicators. I just see what The Economist , Channel 4, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, and a few others, are saying and they are invariably wrong. (To non-UK readers, YA-B is worth watching occasionally. 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.

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...
