The national anthem still gets played every night at 1am on Radio 4, just after the shipping forecast.

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?

Dons psychoanalysts hat. Hmm, and tell me Mr H, are you comfortable telling the world that you actually know that?
And just to be a pedantic (insert expletive) there is no 1am at night.



Sorry Alan, I'll get my coat. :exit:

Alan. Look. When R4 plays the National Anthem, it's dark. When it's dark it's night. OK? :laughter:

Satire and sarcasm ON

OK Mr smart arse! So what are you saying? That I should........like........go to bed at 2.00 pm from November till March? Sheesh! You soothies, worra you like?

It was dark for the first three days, before God said "let there be light" Are you trying to say that these weren't really days at all (cos it was dark)That would mean the big G created the world, not in seven days, but in four, come on! creating the world in a week I can just about get my head around, but four days! I think you're having a laugh.
But you wont be laughing come judgment day young man, God doesn't take kindly to mere mortals defining what's night and what's day, That's his job. :angry: I hope you sleep well tonight: :twisted:

One could put everyone called Allan into Room 101 for a spell - and include Alan and Allen for another spell.

Can we put the entire UK royal family in?

What a waste of space- Phil The Greek's utter emarassingness; Chick's low level intelligence; Anne's faux 'Scottishness' I don't even know who the other 2 are....
--and what on earth is the purpose of them anyway?

1) Every dishonest, malevolent twit in the Bush administration.
2) People who flagrantly disregard evidence.
3) Dogmatic ideology.
4) People who voted Yes on Prop 8.
5) Mormons.
6) Disinformation merchants.
7) Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly.
8) People who care more about a flag than what said flag represents.
9) At least 95% of all politicians world-wide.
10) George Galloway.

The purpose of the Queen is to be a non-political, powerless head of state. She is very useful to us. Agreed there are too many hangers on and they are a bit expensive but against that they bring the tourists.

Someone has to present medals and open Parliament. Who would be preferable? A retired Prime Minister? I wouldn't receive a medal from Tony Blair any more than some would accept an accolade from Lady Thatcher. How about Alan Sugar or Bruce Forsyth? Heredity is preferable to election or appointment; some sovreigns are better, some worse, but they even out over time.

You'll see I haven't quite mastered the art of quoting! Advice please.

This is what I do - Hit the 'Quote' thing in the top right hand corner of someone else's post. A reply page comes up and I then cut bits out I don't want - but making sure I leave the 'quote' stuff at the beginning and the end. Then after the last 'quote' I put my comment and hit 'Submit' and bob's your uncle and fanny's etc

I have a sneaking suspicion that if everybody in the world's selection made it into room 101 we'd all be in there and the only things left outside would be sunsets, sunrises and distant mountains rising majestically into a far horizon.

Since I'd certainly be in 101 I think I'd have to choose the sunset, just so I could still see it.
