Re: Election Vote

Don't confuse them with the facts, Keith - they want their "sovereignty back"!

Re: Boris Gate

Coventry is often mentioned in the context of severe bombing raids - 'Coventry got hit bad!', but it was a mere scratch compared to Hamburg. I've got a book somewhere "The Night Hamburg Died", but I...

Marina Hyde of The Guardian is on waspish form today. I particularly liked:

So taking a generic drug like aspirin - (59p for 32 at Boots) the Yanks pay around 1/4 of that - say 15p for 32?
