As you know, I'm with Beerpig on this one.

Re: Multiyork

I have recently bought a sofa and a chair from a company called Loaf and am very happy with them. My previous sofas were from John Lewis and I still have one of them ...

Re: Salisbury

Novichok is said to persist in the environment for "hours or days", yet the attack took place 4th March, so what is the real risk of this stuff still being on the pavements etc as we head towards May? Why not just keep the sites closed for another six weeks and then declare them safe? Som...

I don't know what that means, but it sounds like a lot of work.


If you are using Chrome as your browser you click on the dropdown menu at the top right, then select "new incognito window", job done!

Re: Chinos

Thanks for all the suggestions. I note the Rohan trousers are made of polyamide, not cotton. As a holiday in a hot place is the reason for me shopping now, I am concerned that these un-natural fibres will make my legs sweat, and the drainpipe trousers becoming literally, drainpipes. I will have a l...

Re: UK Military Action

Do you believe Syria used chemical weapons against its own people or do you think it is some sort of western conspiracy? This is not a binary question. Balance of probability, Syria but not 100%.

A couple of questions on the missile strikes. 1. Does anyone have a trustworthy news source for how many missiles hit their targets and how many were shot down? I hear that most of the missiles were shot down and also that they all hit their targets, I guess the truth is somewhere between the two. ...

Re: Ex girlfriend advice

IME it is usually better to do something that you think might be beneficial rather than regret your inaction at a later date. So a quick note saying, "I see you contacted me via linkedin. How are you these days?" would have very little downside and would resolve the issue of not knowing wh...
