He was a great actor,as they all were on Frasier.I still like watching the repeats of it no matter how many times I've seen them.

Sorry to hear that.I just watched him recently in a Columbo episode where he skillfully played a double part as twins.
I'd seen it umpteen times but he made it watchable again.

It's far from certain that Conservative MPs will endorse this blatantly opportunistic move by May. The Government is supposed to be entirely neutral in matters of Northern Ireland's constitution and to form a coalition with the unionists is contrary to this.The DUP also have some extreme views - ant...

My guess is that Trump secretly wouldn't mind losing narrowly.That way he can go on claiming the vote was 'rigged' and still have a high profile whipping up anti-establishment feeling. If he actually wins ? Well then he'll have enormous responsibility as probably the most important person in the wor...

It's ironic that Stephen Woolfe will have the benefit of free health care in France due to EU agreements.

It's funny how we tend to think of countries as being stable but even recent history shows they aren't.In my lifetime the following countries have broken up or merged :
Germany
Czechoslovakia
Yugoslavia
Cyprus
USSR
Pakistan
Ethiopia
Sudan
China (acquired Hong Kong)

A recent survey shows that if given the choice between the EU and the UK,the majority of Scots still favour the UK. One of the main reasons is bound to be economic as 64% of exports go to the rest of the UK compared to 15% to the EU. These days opinions can change overnight and a lot of people are w...

Well,ASS-P I will try to pick up the thread re Ukraine. Apparently the Soviet Union argued that countries like India and Phillippines,which were virtually British and American colonies respectively in 1945,were allowed in the UN,so why shouldn't Soviet 'colonies' be allowed as well ? The origin of t...

Whatever. You should all know better than to nit pick and to judge a country, when its not even exploiting itself to the same barriers that you put up in your public institution that you dare call a democracy. Let the facts be distorted or speak for itself. http://ichef-1.bbci.co.uk/news/624/cpspro...

Boris is foreign minister supposedly, one would presumably need to count to ten to do finance. .. I believe he speaks over 50 different languages and is quite bright, when he's not squatting down with paper and pen at number 10! He has shown concern now over 'the people of Gibraltar's vote'. I mean...

I agree about Smith,his speech was cringeworthy,but the voting pattern wasn't as simple as rich = remain,hard workers = leave. Remain won in Cardiff,Liverpool and Manchester proper as well as all 32 electoral districts in Scotland which includes the 'steeltown' of Motherwell.It was Margaret Thatcher...

It’s not that we don’t want them or think they aren’t good enough in some British sense but they just can’t seem to work their way through negotiations without making sure they tread lightly around the table, then not pausing to think before they clear off without so much as a passing wave. Hmm, I ...

I work in the shipping business and I don't understand the Leave supporters claims that we can trade more with the Commonwealth instead of the EU.Most of the Commonwealth countries are at least 30 days transit by sea apart from Canada (and they've just completed a preferential trade deal with the EU...
