Okay where were we?
I think the last thread is no more, having got a bit Norwegian Blue.
So have at it, Brits and others. "Frae a' the airts the wind may blaw, ye're welcome here, tae have a chaw."*

*Freely adapted from Sir Harry Lauder's house motto. It was called Lauder Hall, so it rhymes okay as Lauder Ha'.
I was going to say in Thread II, to Izzy who had gone off on one, that George is a friend in whose company I have spent many happy hours. I was sorry to see him the target of that outburst, which I thought misplaced and inappropriate.

Okay the old thread seems to be going again, so this one is redundant.
As you were.
Thank you for visiting.

@McTag,
A clean slate seemed like such a good idea. Oh well.

On this day in 1066, William the Conqueror invaded England from Normandy, France.
After successfully conquering the country, William ushered in a series of political and legal reforms that still define the United Kingdom and its former colonies to this day, including, centralisation of state power, a census, and the infusion of French and Latin into the language of the courts.

For those of you who think we're all aristocrats living in castles, this repulsive story has been doing the rounds over here.

When I read it to the Kid he started gagging so be warned before you click on the link.

The latest yougov poll, taken after The Labour Party Conference and the pm and chancellor's attempts to reassure the market, puts Labour on 54% and the Tories on 21%, a 33% lead.

On Monday, following my father's funeral I went to Scarborough for a couple of days.

We decided to stop off at a pub but the first one we came to was plastered with pictures of Orange order marches and the red hand of Ulster.

We decided to give it a miss and went to the next pub which was very nice.

This got me thinking, I've never seen Orange order stuff in England before, and had believed their acivity was confined to Liverpool.

I did a bit of googling and the English lodge had just had a march in Scarborough on the Saturday before.

I read the itinerary which had them meeting up at a pub afterwards.

It wasn't the Orange order pub I expected, they gave that a miss too and went to the same pub as us.

Since the Brexit thread is closed:

The EU is expected to delay introducing fingerprinting and facial recognition checks in Dover amid fears it could mar travel to next year’s summer Olympics in Paris.
