1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Come on, you just love your daily trawl through the broadsheets, it serves to confirm to yourself your innate intellectual superiority over the 'working class' man and woman.

    Supine is a word that describes rather well the kind of people who willingly assume the position every time Jean-Claude pops his cork. I always think of that awful activist wimp Adonis. For some reason I'm on his twitter feed. It isn't pretty watching him spread his cheeks every day, but it's somehow almost compelling.

    Hugh hasn't an original thought in his head, bar his very particular talent for the waspish retort.

    You mentioned wind turbines, which is perhaps unfortunate. It brings to mind once again the Scottish firm, part owned by the taxpayer thanks to Saint Nicky and Alex, which is unable to build the bloody things due to the EU state subsidy rules, so they have to be built by a Spanish company - that is subsidised by the state but apparently exempt from the same rules - instead.

    I know. I read it in The Guardian.

    I do exactly the same with the Daily Express.
    The news that they come up with are absolutely out of this world and make me laugh everytime.
    Its just a little newspaper creating non-factual news to instigate anti-EU hatred in gullible hardline Brexiteers.

    At least in the Express you get Rupert and a fairly easy cryptic crossword.

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr Well, I can dream, can’t I?

    Always hated Rupert. Not funny, or interesting, even as a kid. And what's the point of an easy crossword?

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    It’s an important source of much needed unintentional entertainment in these dark days.

    I have a Rupert Bear eggcup, which I still use. My Mother in-law bought it for me when I was 38 1/2.

    Not seen @Brian for a while. Has he claimed an EU citizenship somewhere maybe?

    Let me rephrase. A crossword that will take a bit of a hard thunk but have a chance of completing. :)

    The government would have been an easy Brexit target, if it were not for Covid.

    The pandemic has changed the public narrative, and there will be a few ministers glad about that.

    There seems to be a focus on Customs Brokerage services. Inevitable really. Yes, it will add to costs, but I also expect to see some investment in innovation.
