Nothing, but it's great rhetoric!

Welcome the tax-dodging classes? Clearly fake news!

Thatís better!

Surely the fact that Poland is on there must reflect nationalised Poles going home, I canít see that many actual Brits going there.

Never trust statistics!

Cabbage soup is a great attraction.

I know, that stat alone does make me wonder, I mean it’s a close call to Greece for crying out loud!
Isn’t cabbage soup simply the water that you’ve cooked the cabbage in?

Oddly Romania is on my ‘to go’ list, having been there in the early 80s for work. Struggle to see any appeal in Poland unless there is a wildlife draw. Mined ewe, they’ll probably eat whatever it is before I get there.

I very much liked the Next Post remark... Should make voting much easier next election as there will be no-one who is a current MP available... too busy picking spuds, carrots and cabbages etc.Which could possibly explain Mr. Hammonds attempt to get a new OJT Scheme off the ground?

Please don't Harold. You have just reminded me of school meals, and the all pervading stench of cabbage being boiled to within an inch of its life.

It was the all pervading stench that was the end product ... after it had been eaten, I found the hardest to endure. Locked in a class-room with 30+ others playing the Pharp! Pfarp! chorus and having to take deep breaths to get rid of it quickly, is not something I want to experience ever again.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Actually you have reminded me that we used to walk through the dining hall to assembly every morning, so we got our first whiff of boiled cabbage at around 08.55 hours reminding us of what we had to look forward to just three hours later!

And what was it they used to do to school custard to take the flavour out?
