No More Political Threads Please

We now have three political threads on the go at the same time. As much as I enjoy joining in the debates please do not start any more for the time being; post in one of the existing threads instead.

Thank you.

Re: No More Political Threads Please

The "Legal Advice" thread was turning political, so I've merged it with the Theresa May shot in the foot thread.

Re: No More Political Threads Please

So, anyway, the Provincial Liberals and the Federal Liberals were all together in a bar trying to decide if they should shock the electorate and actually follow up on one, any one, of their election promises.




It should be noted that I had to check which parties were in power before writing this. It's only to bug John.

Surprised they could remember any! To be a good liar you need a good memory and politicians memories are shorter than supposed goldfish memories I am told.
