I don’t know, but what I do know is that if I ever pop into yours for a cuppa I’d better bring my own milk. Full Fat makes me heave!😁
You'd better not wear your faux leather sandals, ya commie bastard!

FWIW, tea makes me heave whatever the milk.
As a black coffee drinker, milk is pretty much only there for a splash in mash potato (double cream if we have it) or for cereal for the kids. Am I bringing them up Tory?

Bath, Somerset.
A deeply depressing state of affairs, thank god for the BBC. I wouldn’t mind a few more decent news sources on the left though, I find the Guardian depressingly smug, though worth the price of admission for Marina Hyde and John Crace alone, and largely the only British daily paper to do any real investigative journalism.
Corrected for you :)

The Sunday Times and the Times have been pretty keen on investigative journalism for quite a number of years.
They do some, it’s true, but I would put them behind the Guardian and the FT for meaningful investigative journalism.

Private Eye remains our greatest national treasure I would say, for their willingness to keep banging the drum for causes that other periodicals don’t.

No, but mash for breakfast is a weird choice.

Haha, I never drink any type of milk on its own, but I do like skimmed or semi in my tea or coffee which have to be strong. My wife drinks black coffee.
No faux leather sandals here. The real thing or barefoot unless I’m going out to buy my copy of the Morning Star.😁
Don’t worry about the kids as long as you bring them up to be Albion supporters 👍

Private Eye cocked up badly on the MMR/ Wakefield scandal though.

It did, and that is disappointing, but it clearly genuinely felt that there was something there. Sometimes conmen can be very convincing, especially if they bring along grieving parents who feel that something is wrong but they’re not being heard. Not the Eye’s finest hour though.

Whatever you think about what you are hearing on the radio right now.....this is a bad a shambles as the Brexit votes under May.

It really is hard to take Parliament seriously on days like this, the classic “Westminster bubble” guff where on a day when Parliament could have come together and agreed a consensus position on one of the major international crises of our time, they instead have decided to bicker and fall out about procedure and parliamentary niceties.

Shame on the SNP for trying to use the situation for political point scoring.
Shame on the Labour Party if they have sought to coerce Hoyle into acting.
Shame on the Tories for trying to inflame the situation for their purposes.

Almost as if every aspect of 'the Mother of all parliaments' is set up for constant confrontation :shrug:

This was revealed in the house by a tory MP who claims he was told this by a labour MP.

OK, mate :shrug:

i used to love it, but medical advice many years ago steered me to semi skimmed. So much as a spoonful of FF makes me want to vomit

The Tories will be loving this - Comments on the radio can be broadly be categorised as "they're all as bad as each other", "no wonder turn outs are so low" etc etc etc. That said, this is pathetic, nobody is coming out of this well.
yup, getting towards the desperation state where nobody looks good, nobody looks overly trustworthy, and this muddled up with fake news and the onwards steady march of AI is leading us all to a place where we no longer know who’s who, what’s what, what’s true and what’s a downright lie. Jeez, I’m glad I’m mid sixties and won’t be around in another 30 years time.

Indeed.

Despite the fact that unless they really did give Lindsay Hoyle a dry slap, Labour have done nothing wrong.

Edit: except, of course, imaging their portentous condemnation of hostilities will do anything. At all.

I'm mid 60s and will be furious if I'm not around in 30 years.
