Re: M&S sells hijabs for little girls

There have been some really bad discussion threads elsewhere including some people I would expect to know better - not opinions different from mine but bad arguments - like 'a little girl should not be told to wear that' - when apparently some little girls want to wear it like their big siste...

Re: Brexit consequences

I wouldn't bet against a very bad deal.

May said a bad deal is worse than no deal but she was wrong.

No deal means utter chaos.

For instance no flights between the UK and the EU.

Goop

Paltrow was talking on BBCTV this morning - will post a link when the programme is available on Iplayer. She was saying that they have a dedicated team of scientists to make sure their stuff is efficacious - to avoid problems they've had in the past. I can't help thinking that these people will be t...

Too complicated Mr Croydon. I'll go with 'Donald Trump is a wanker' - snappy and catchy.
