Re: Cycle friendly Wetherspoons

Another euphemism: 'we are opening a new branch nearby' or 'we are moving'

Both mean also "we are closing' :?

Re: Finland Future Female (FFF)

Maybe MacRon meant 'dying', could take a while, not dead yet .. It is worth reading Merkels biography on wiki, her dad was a clergyperson, the family emigrated to the DDR, she was a scientist, then tried working as a deputy government spokesperson (..) Getting to the top involves a lot of luck, she ...

Asked a local whether there were dangerous jellyfish or poisonous spiny sea-urchins in the water
'No worries mate, the sharks have eaten them all', bleated that worthy

Re: All-female cabinet?

The new Finnish cabinet has 12 female members and six male, ladies hold all the 'important' posts

I am a laddie and I think that is very good, why?

The Finnish coalition comprises five parties, the PMs party got only 13% of the votes. Could be interesting :wink:

Re: Room temperatures

Went to the theatre
Too hot inside so lots of people hand in their coats at the garderobe
After the performance there was a big queue to collect coats. I think it was free but often there is a charge
Coats could be nicked too :?

Better to turn down the heating instead

Somewhat between bemused and angry listening to a Tory as. The background music was Zadok the Priest, written, of course, by Handel. It is meant to sound patriotic. Handel was an German immigrant. He was an economic migrant. And a marvelous, creative musician. On the other hand, the Tories are lyin...
