Re: Brexit consequences

A reminder of what lies just below the surface of the Peace Agreement in Northern Ireland: this documentary was made in 1993, just as the Peace Agreement was being negotiated. And this is what a No Deal Brexit (and the consequences that a re-establishment of the border between North and South might ...

Cheap flights anyone?

Just wanted to share this. No matter how many times I hear this song (otherwise known as The Feckity Feck Song) or watch this video it never fails to have me in stitches. Anyone who has ever flown to or from Ireland with Ryan Air via Stansted Airport will know what I mean because although it's funne...

Re: Which instrument for you?

Actually, the instrument I would most like to be able to play, because for me it produces the most evocative sound, is the piano accordion. I was rather hoping that the piano accordian would have been the chosen quiz instrument for me, as I do own and play one. Needless to say, Peter Sarsted's 'Whe...

Re: Which instrument for you?

Electric or acoustic, double or synth, the low end rumble is what gives music its form and power, and without it, Beethoven would sound weedy, funk would sound silly and drum 'n' bass would be just...

Re: Boris Johnson on the Burka

Whatever his reasons for saying what he did, the words are true! - the Batman face coverages DO look like letterboxes, as many would agree (including some of the wearers themselves) - and as far as an apology is concerned, good for him for refusing; it really is not warranted.

Re: Police Protection

Well, providing 24-hour protection in one place requires four people, working shifts (might get away with three for a short period). And there were - how many - about six boys? Thorough protection gets very expensive very quickly, especially with overtime / unsocial hours bonuses.... Speaking of .....
