    I've never come across that! Always centigrade for me for weather.

    I have fallen into the bad habit of using farengeit when BBQing as a lot of the recipies I use are American.

    I use Centigrade too. But for the red top papers, it's 80 degrees when it's hot and minus 2 when it's cold!

    Depends who she's talking to. Could be the political equivalent of Nelson putting the telescope to his eyepatch

    Have you only just realised that Wills ?
    Those in charge can syphon off billions in public money to give to their friends, invade foreign countries for their own greed and murder those who try to speak out.

    They aren’t like us…but we allow it to go on

    oh I’m fully aware it goes on and has done forever, power corrupts absolute kinda thing, but it just seems like the current incumbents are upping the game tenfold and can’t be arsed to even hide it. It shows a remarkable amount of contempt for the public and why not, like you say we allow it.

    I’m not so sure about the current lot being the worst. I mean, the previous lot were just as bad and in someways a whole lot worse.
    Who would have thought that they could have got away with murder…and I mean literally murder.
    You’ll have to go some way to beat that.

    I remember the good old days, 2016, when Johnson & Gove told us that energy prices would reduce after brexit. They wouldnt have just made that up....surely.....

    Thank god though for 'levelling up'. It means everyone should be absolutely fine after NIC increases, energy price rises, food price rises, UC cuts.

    Ignore the fake news. The energy problems in fact are nothing to do with Brexit except for the consequences of the EU’s stupid reliance on Russian gas (Russia’s cut exports to Europe by 25% to leverage support for Nordstream). Problems are global but worsened by poor UK policy.

    But then why mention Brexit in the first place ? I despise the Tories but they couldn’t see this one coming…..however what I do blame them for is the privatisation of our utilities….but that goes way back before Brexit

    Because they made a promise related to Brexit that, like the others, they were in no position to make and has turned out to be absolute bollocks.

    Ahhh…so they acted like almost every politician that has ever existed.
    Got ya.
    It doesn’t make me hate them any more or any less. However the link to Brexit for every woe that befalls the country is, in fact, more so absolute bollox
