Re: In or out?

I guess that I find articles like this, by a professional, aimed at professionals and with a cheerfully practical lack of oratory, more scary than the stuff of politics - which still gets dismissed as scaremongering: http://www.politics.co.uk/opinion-formers/chartered-institute-of-taxation-ciot/arti...

Re: In or out?

like anything to do with Brexit, this is all pissing in the wind. There'll be some relatively late stitchups which make any thinking at present to be of little importance

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Correction. Churchill's quote was: "The US and Britain are two great nations DIVIDED by a common language." My opinion is that they never should have divided in the first place! My favorite Churchill quote is: "I like to quote myself, it adds spice to the conversation!" I heard ...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Thanks, animist. Yes, if the Pilgrims were alive today they would be over 400 years old which would be a miracle today! however, in comparison with those people in the Bible who lived 900 years or more, they would be in the prime of life. Noah and his sons populated the whole world when they were 6...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Dear animist, No, I don't think you're all lazy at all. Its probably because you British haven't much interest in Thanksgiving. Aside from Xmas, what are your favorite holidays? Is it the Queens birthday? Do you have any jokes on that? Look at the humor they are treating the Potus to in the US! Her...

Re: Descramble

Yes but it was a very unfair clue. It's not a surname but a shortened version of what used to be a common given name.
