You're not making as much sense as you usually do, LMoG.
Alan Henness

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Well, the words aren't meant to make much sense. All about a big bonnet, apparently.
But the point is to sing along with the divine Ms Fowlis...

Set 'em up, Joe. Whatever you're having, and three fingers of Old Pulteney for me.

Jiggin' in the back room. you say?
Well, I never cared much for dancing, but I'll have a look.

I dunno. That's not too dissimilar to what Athena and I were doing this evening... Well, not quite as energetic... Swing, Lindy Hop, Charleston. Even some Rock 'n' Roll... We're quite versatile.

It's thirsty work, though, so I'll have a pint of IPA if you're asking.

Set 'em up, Joe. Ardbeg for me. Keep the cork.
And whatever you're having yourself.

I'm a broad-minded man. Live and let live, and so forth. But ... I say we take off and nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

I think you're right there, LMoG. I think I could come up with a few other reasons for the nukes as well...

I take your point, Alan. But some things are just too obdurately obdurate to joke about.
Like Bigly Genuine Single Malt Deliverance County Scotch Whiskey. Coming soon.

Bugger it! I'm going to get ratarsed. What're you having?
