What has happened to our beloved duo Ant and Dec? Does Ant have mental health problems? I think it's stress and alcohol problems, I could be wrong. I don't have much sympathy over drunk driving though. I just can't grasp the way some people are able to ignore risks even when they are being taken wi...

It's perhaps being overlooked that a policeman is still seriously ill in hospital and the inventor of Novichok says that any members of the public who came in contact with it could possibly be affected by it in future,as the effects can be long term.This was an reckless attack on the UK,regardless o...

I don't shop at Sainsburys Kraftie and they are not the most popular of supermarkets. I tend to go to Aldi and Asda, or Tesco or Lidl. Not sure where others tend to shop on here - perhaps some will comment? Morrison's Marks & Spencer I've got plenty of other supermakets nearby like Aldi's,Lidl'...

What do you call a group of Aspies ? A cast of Aspersions. Sorry Pluto, English is still somewhat a foreign language to me. So I don't get your joke. Could you either rephrase or explain it to me please? Thanks in advance. It's a play on words cast aspersions - say harsh critical things about someo...

You're doing it wrong. Unfamiliarity with the dialect. Close but no cigar. ;-)

Is it just me, or is the grass greener up north? We don't have hot water or enamel baths. Still on tin baths.

Although it's definitely extreme weather,there didn't seem to be any attempts by the authorities to grit the roads - much ...

On another forum I raised the point about what would really have been meant by "well regulated militia".Not only did gun supporters say that it definitely referred to all individuals,but one person said that 'well regulated' means 'well equipped'. As long as there are people with no qualms...
