The English pubs will diminish and disappear as the Muslim population increases, a fact, not an opinion. What a load of tosh . English pubs are on the decline for various reasons , and none of them concern race or religion . Smoking bans , Tied brewery greed , High rent and business rates , High pr...

Re: Another UK pension hit.

Forgive me for nitpicking , but you have been receiving this benefit for years , and you have had 10 years to adjust your finances .
