    Evens at least, still.

    Of all the mechanisms available, it will surprise you not one jot that we've picked the worst one to determine it - a General Election, where we choose the candidate to answer for us a broad range of questions.

    Unless, of course, you are thinking of voting for the Brexit Party Ltd, a political/financial entity that considers you, as a voter, so unimportant that it won't even publish a manifesto to tell you what it intends to do with your trust if you give it them.

    Remember when Farago was caught on camera telling everyone that a 'US style' insurance-based health care system was 'inevitable'?

    Do you also remember when you thought that that would genuinely be an absolute disaster for all of the people that live in this country?

    Because you were right to think that, and you are right to continue thinking that

    Johnsons oven ready used to be available from a previous supplier but nobody bought it, a few changes to the packaging though and suddenly its much easier to swallow.

    I think Johnson's Oven Ready has had one of the original ingredients removed - something from Ireland, orange in colour.

    Tbf, if it were me, i'd be pushing the 'by marriage, not blood' line as equally aggressively.

    Maybe not if i was leeching off him at the same time, mind. A bit rude.

    The more interesting thing about the UK fishing farago, quite apart from the shocking revelation that Brexit MEP's are completely clueless, is that there are two immutable truths about the fishing rights to UK waters -
    1. 'we' don't eat what is fished from our waters
    2. 'they' do
    'We' eat what is fished off the coast of Iceland and up towards Norway

    'They' buy all the bits 'n' bobs that 'we' couldn't even name.

    Cod 'n' Haddock are not what is found off John 'O' Groats or Land's End.

    I'd be interested to hear from @BobClay what the 'rules of engagement' might be if 'we' suddenly needed to redeploy RN vessels to protect our fishing 'interests' around the Blighty coast?
