Re: power fluctuations

Love the "electric" threads on UM.

They seem to have more spice, and contrary views, than even the EPL or Trump threads. :D

Childish copy & paste
Please can you tell me what the fc.uk this woefully amateurish copy & paste has to do with the EPL or banter for that matter?
As the thread OP, I was wondering the same as I laboured through Jumbo's post.

For all its shortcomings, statto, Australia discovered many years ago the benefits of regular bathing, with soap.

Hopefully the Poms will follow suit within a decade or two of exiting Europe - if and when that happens. ;)

When Will Australia Grow Up?

I see that the former British colony of Barbados has seen fit to toss the British crown aside. =D> Barbados has announced its intention to remove Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and become a republic. The Caribbean nation gained independence from Britain in 1966 and has since maintained a fo...

Re: Special Tourist Visa (STV) 90 Days

If I am reading the tea leaves correctly, everything seems to be pushing the immigration function towards using the "agents".

Re: U.S. Politics

If logic has any part to play in the coming election, Trump should end up with somewhere between 1 and 1000 votes - including the 3 or 4 on here who are eligible, but blind.
