    Charlie ... Never mind the "brexiteer" ... Chope is an unspeakble peice of secondhand shit, who should have his genitals slowly removed, one piece at a time, with a rusty hacksaw. Graydon and the party structure massively obscures what's really...

    Pigeon @ 642 You raise a very valid point there. The Maggon may have been mad - but she was quite forcibly pro-Europe. How come the brexiteers are trampling on her "sacred memory"? Chrlie @ 644 Compare & contrast the...

    Graydon The thing that sticks in my mind is the way Queenie dropped everything, cleared her diary & went to Aberfan after the disaster. She has been back several times - usually meets the last child pulled from the wreckage,...

    Charlie @ 498 On Corbyn: (I suspect he doesn't understand macroeconomics and the implications of fiscal policy) I don't think he understands it AT ALL, nor international relations - he's against us having anything like armed services yet cuddles up...
