It won't be in five years time. A sad, sad loss.

Was it really there in the first place, is the question? Great TV sitcoms, bad governance.

The Conservatives aren't the ones you have to worry about, it's the Muslims. Try living under Sharia law for a while and the Conservatives won't seem so bad by comparison.
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.

Bill Bailey’s live Hammersmith Odeon performance “Qualmpeddler” (2013) has some hilarious bits examining key players of the coalition and the DVD can be had new for just a few quid, well worth it too! George Carlin’s live in New York performance “Life Is Worth Losing” (2006 / 75 min) also brilliantly deconstructs relevant absurdities,
very highly recommended. I don’t know much about politics but we’re reminded of a certain "fairy tale"...

I suppose we've allowed both parties (Labour & Tories) to open the door metaphorically. Yes agreed, there's extremists in islam, but also in other mainstream religions too overlooked. Sadly it was the West who entered the middle east during the crusades, and never left. Unfortunately Pandora's box is wide open, they lost the key largely because of their lack of insight and of political knowledge of the middle east. :|

Poor Harold would be distraught at the Labour defeat, and I guess the Old Man would be a UKiper by now ?

For the longest time I thought UKIP was a discount bed shop.
