    Elon Musk wins case against "pedo guy"

    Because of the Thailand's reputation for child prostitution https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_prostitution_in_Thailand I'm not saying that the cave divers are guilty of anything, far from it. By all means be offended, read something more into my words.

    The fact that the first cave divers to assist were in holidaying in Thailand at the time is surely relevant and gives more weight to the defamation.
  3. Not the panel gliding ones. Maybe these: https://www.luxaflex.com.au/products/blinds/veri-shades/
  4. The only way I'd keep that pelmet was if it could be recovered in something more neutral possibly with matching curtains. Definitely get rid of the vertical blinds. Long sheers would be nice.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    I don't understand why they don't go and live in USA. There's no need for them to be in the UK when they're unhappy.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I thought the whole point of Brexit was to take back control not hand over important decisions like this.

    Hand tailored suits does not reflect the dress of the average teen lad. He could quite easily have been dressed in smart casual. But if you tell me that Brexit means that all parents would be able to afford to dress their children to this standard, then go Bojo.

    Felt sorry for the kid being dressed like a mini me.

    They/Them and the Brits

    Surely the whole acting awards system is a marketing exercise to sell more more movies.

    They/Them and the Brits

    I think we should welcome opportunities to take the gender out of an award, and acting is an ideal area to start. It's a natural progression regardless of anyone's attitude to binary/non-binary. Your post had me thinking back to my days as a young (and only) female graduate engineer and the office smut club run by a colleague, Porno Pat, the purveyor of perversion. Thankfully it wouldn't happen today, but I can't say at the time it bothered me.

    The blame game will keep on, so maybe it's time to stop resisting and adding fuel to the fire. It will wash out with a better informed public.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    There has already been too much suffering with austerity and people seem accept it as inevitable. Another poster mentioned that people were spoon fed and how true is that, think of the repatriation of Thomas Cook holiday makers by the government as though it was a WW2 mission. A brexit crash may be the jolt people need and I now believe the bexit bus has reached terminal velocity. Nothing good will come from Jeremy wresting control at the very last minute. This has to play out. Out of the fire, the Republic of England (& Wales?).

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Is there not some optimism to be gained from the fact that people are paying attention, to politics, to government, to class divisions, to the elite, to money and power? Change is needed with or without Brexit and this period could be the catalyst.
