Re: Countdown

What about 'meagrest' as in 'he won by the meagrest of margins'.

Re: A second referendum - or a general election?

The more I learn about this issue, the more convinced I am becoming that every single option is completely unacceptable. I'm not sure where that leaves me... :con That is what I think.

Re: A second referendum - or a general election?

Said on Marr this morning - that of the three options that might appear on some sort of 2ref: Leave with no deal, leave on May's deal or don't leave - the latter of those would probably win but with less than 40% of the vote. Whereas in the 2016 referendum, leave won by 52%. This of course would be ...

Re: Ultima Thule etc

Re: Ultima Thule etc

Can't think of any right now but have done some howlers in the past - I'll get back when I think of some. When I come across a word I'm not sure of I tend to utilise Spanish pronunciation rules because unlike English they are (almost) completely rigid. Thule would therefore be ' thoo -leh' On names,...

However as I have been given one for Christmas by Stephen Hawking (I mean the book was by him not that he gave it to me :roll: ) I may find myself ...

Subjects which are impossible to debate properly and civilly.

I would include Brexit (obviously) - never brought up in the pub although I see FB posts from some of my friends which indicate their leaning. Also, bikes V motor vehicles V pedestrians - easy one to fall out over. Also, dangerous dogs. Try pointing out that bull breeds cause more death and injury t...
