This is my post and I will waste it on a rambling fucking anecdote if I please: so my sister and her kids met a doggo while on holiday.
It would come into their hotel room and beg for food, and though flea-bitten and a bit of a stringy, ragged thing, they warmed to it and blah blah blah gnawed my ear off about this doggo and how they would get drunk with it and it was the highlight of their vacay to the point they didn't want to leave it wandering the streets, so when they came home, they started a drive to get the animal adopted, established a fundraiser of some sort via Facebook and eventually they got enough cash together to send the dog somewhere it would be looked after.  This was their feelgood holiday story and their FB circle natters away about it and I'll cut to the chase they holidayed in Greece and the dog was starving because no-one could afford to give leftovers or scraps to it or any other strays and this was my family of Remain voters' takeaway.

Fair play to them. Mind, I was in Athens long before austerity and the streets were full of underfed strays (pics available on request!), and this wasn't long after the Olympics cull of over 10,000 dogs. So while I remain disgusted by the EU's handling of Greece, I'm not sure dog welfare was particularly high on the agenda even in the days before credible taxation.

I see George W welling up during his funeral speech, and I can't help wondering if he ever thinks of the people he bereaved whose family funerals don't get on the telly.
I don't like to see anyone lose a family member, but I also think the current clown in the WH makes us forget what a murderous shitbag the old, non-cuddly non-painting Dubya really was.


What was it, half a million civilians killed in Iraq?  Something like that.

Deaths in the high 400,000s, though not sure of the breakdown by civilian/military status.

Maybe, but there's also an option to set how many posts you see per page. So I'm afraid there's a long way to go!

At least in an otherwise highly charged political debate, we can all agree on the number of pages.

Oh, wait...

Let’s hope the forum doesn’t explode when a thread hits four figures.

There is?  Where's  that then?
