  • I'm almost tempted to start a fry-up club.
  • I have strong feelings about this. Pork sausages slow-fried in the pan, smoked streaky bacon oven-baked until weaponised-level crispy, black pudding, hash browns, Heinz '5 beans' slow cooked until thick. Fried bread done in the pan that had the sau…
  • Thank you all. The number of responses says a lot about us all. I'd forgotten about Picolo Diavalo- they do indeed serve a mighty breakfast. And agree about the Brave having the best food- see also beer, ambience and service. In the end I went to…
  • I'm genuinely very happy for those who enjoy Christmas. I hope this one is lovely for them too. I do think that it's a bit dubious, though, to dismiss those who don't as 'professional miserablists'. My miserablism is amateur and very specific. Ther…
  • I... OK that's pretty tempting.
  • Amazing bit of scroogery there Scruffy. Top marks. Bonus points for "hero-of-comedy-manqué".
  • Welcome Silvia!

  • Gah, sorry to hear that. Glad you're OK, and thanks for the heads-up.

  • Sounds like you did a good thing there. These incidents are ghastly, but even with recent growth they are still rare and an outlier in a time of falling crime rates. I'd be interested to know whether this wss an exception, but these incidents are g…
  • The GOBLIN Users Group are the worst bunch of paranoid, mean spirited and shrill people. Back when I used to have a handle on these matters I know TfL wouldn't have anything to do with them because of their utterly rude behaviour, and I've seen some…

  • Why should he have to resign?
  • Punishing someone for the sins of the son. A party with liberal in its name making hay over prohibition. Pfffffffff
  • Welcome! Some recent recommendations here: http://www.stroudgreen.org/discussion/comment/89122/#Comment_89122 If you search for 'plumber' here on the forum you might find more.

  • I'm not involved with them any more, but you can contact them via their website: https://stroudgreencaac.wordpress.com If that doesn't work then let me know. I'm curious, what are your objections?
  • We call it 'the magic bus'.
  • I don't think you can compare direct democracy and representative democracy here. And if you did, plenty of countries have a precedent of an enabling referendum and a confirming one, or a second referendum once the details change. And the details ha…
  • That's a thoughtful post, Papa L, and there's much that i agree with, especially the dreadful inadequacy of the remain campaign. However, I'll never understand the argument that it is undemocratic for the people to change their minds. A referendum…
  • @Papa L - I agree with you about the likely outcome of us requesting a limited Article 50 extension. I think that Article 50 could work as is, but we would have had to have forged a national consensus on what we wanted *before* activating it. Ins…
  • Regardless of whether one is a leaver or remainer, it seems odd to me that any referendum on the final terms would exclude remain as an option. What if the public preferred remain to the actual deal on offer, or to no deal? Why deny that option to t…
  • It looked like a motorcycle had gone up in flames, torching the car behind it (though it might have been the other way around) and then the car behind that one also been badly damaged. The pavement and road were covered in cinders.
  • Sorry, I've not done this in ages. Some missing from over the summer, and some consultations already finished. But FYI... *ISLINGTON* P2018/3394/PRA 70 Corbyn Street, London, N4 3BZ Prior Approval Application for the construction of a single store…
  • I think that the thing that looks like tall buildings on the right is actually part of the station on the bridge. The spire is the old Holy Trinity church - damaged in the war and subsequently demolished. The current church is the former church hal…
  • I don't think I've seen a close-up picture of that side of the bridge. There's a long-distance photo floating around somewhere. Oh here it is: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/141/343111789_8dda69a157.jpg This rather suggests that there wasn't much…
  • I wonder why the coal office on that side was demolished.
  • Well I'll be damned. Lancaster road was my first guess, but I decided it couldn't be that because the embankment isn't visible. It must be obscured by a trick of the angle. Good work chaps.
  • Yeah that guy has some stories. Including about some people he was roadie for who'd you'd think were relatively tame. He told me something unrepeatable about Paul Young that... has never left me.
