Re UKIP: General Election 2015, Can immigration figures rescue floundering Ukippers? Net long-term migration to the UK was estimated to be 298,000 in the year ending September 2014, a statistically significant increase from 210,000 in the previous 12 months. So 90,000 or so above the governments ow...

Re: Sticky music thread

Alison Krauss and Union Station - Good rendition of 'Man of constant sorrow' and as always totally acoustic instruments used. Most of us probably remember the tune (from Brother where art though and the soggy bottom boys). The song possibly dates way back to the Mackin clan 1888 Ireland but the firs...

Re: Liberty GB Candidate

Some points where Islamism (use of Sharia courts) is concerned: The 2009 study by the think tank Civitas found evidence of at least 85 “courts” operating across Britain. A big question: Can sharia law work successfully alongside the UK legal system? I doubt it as many principles that the two are fou...

I'm aware that I might have the Grunge-era demographic to myself on this forum, but The Afghan Whigs at Koko in Camden on Wednesday night were just incredible.

I see that despite all their rebranding, we still persist in calling the cooperative the Co-op :) Must admit Co-op rolls off of the tongue much easier. We are creatures of habit. I worked for BT for many years, the part now called Openreach after several name changes. Many customers still saw us as...

She makes some very valid points on many areas, sometimes expressed unfortunately.

I believe it's urban language, so has many different interpretations.'Chuffed' used to be an expression meaning thrilled (or at least it did in old money), for instance 'Chuffed to bits'..
