    Lower value imported goods now 20% more expensive (including Aliexpress) - an early bite of Brexit

    I'm sorry, but you're the dickehead. If you love the UK so much, come and live here and deal with it. All that will happen is that honest businesses will stop selling here because there's too little margin and it's nit worth their while. Dishonest companies will continue to se to customers in...

    Lower value imported goods now 20% more expensive (including Aliexpress) - an early bite of Brexit

    Yes, the NHS is paid for with taxes raised in the UK, but you can't ignore the fact that An Ankoù has a point. This government is trying to run the NHS into the ground and sell it and it's services to tory donors Clap for carers? No thanks I'd rather sign a petition and demand my MP do...

    Should you have a best before date on your beer

    No. Simply because it's generally finished within a few months anyway. When I was a frequent pub visitor it lasted a lot longer. A few years ago when I was between flats, I had a load of stuff stored in a lockup and found some beer that was least a year old. It was all dark Christmas beer and...

    Have THBC stopping delivering to UK?

    Think yourselves lucky. Amazon Spain used to use a company called MRW. In rural areas not only would they not bother trying to deliver, they wouldn't even put a notification card in your post collection box at the end of the road you had to guess someone had sent you a gift.

    Geterbrewed?

    Really? As Rodcx500z, it's likely to be fallout from the UK leaving the EU. A company that seems to be held in high regard here and do a lot of business in the UK is hardly likely to dump loyal and potential customers unless it's no longer feasible to do so. If the problems are caused by the...

    Rookie error!

    John Palmer im his book How to Brew says lager needs to ferment at around 5-8°c. Does the yeast packet give a guide? If so, follow that. I think you'll have problems if you try to ferment at 10 - 14°c

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    That seems to have been a pilot sturdy into the feasibility of requiring ID run in several areas by the Electoral Commission rather than concern over fraud in those areas. Sorry, I should have said England.

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    Was this reported to the police? I find it hard to believe that anyone overseeing a ballot would allow this to happen. They'd probably be guilty of breaking electoral law if the did.

    So what if more democrats use a postal vote? Where in the UK do you need to provide ID?

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    Banning postal votes because the majority of supporters of a particular party voted in that way doesn't seem particularly democratic, does it? What if you or a member of your family were housebound or unable to get to a polling station because of working long hours or being out of the country...

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    If I remember correctly, US news networks are nowhere as heavily regulated as news is in the UK, hence Fox so aggressively supporting Trump. Though now Paul Dacre is head of OFCOM (arguably a political appointment as a reward for services to the Tory party whilst Editor at the Daily Mail), I can...

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    The outcome of US Presidential elections seems to boil down to how much money a candidate can attract. Hence no real choice of candidates from left of centre with a much of a chance. However terrible Jo Biden may or may not be I'd lay serious money on him NOT being as nasty as Trump.

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    To be fair, I think it was the electoral college(s) that won it for Trump, rather than the popular vote.

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    If anti-Trump protestors wouldn't have made it that far and the death toll would have been far greater. I have to agree with Brew_DD2 about risk. I'm way the other other side of the political spectrum and if I decided to storm the White House, I'd fully expect to be at least shot and wounded...

    Disgusting scenes in Washington

    I think you'll find Trump has been whipping them into a frenzy for the last four years or so aided by Fox news, Brietbart etc. As for congratulating Biden, he'll only do do if it's absolutely required of him and then only as a sullen child apologises for something they didn't believe was his fault.

    Post Brexit

    Unfortunately, I don't think there's much humour to be had. Though I suppose a Life if Brian style 'What has leaving the EU done for us?' Sketch would be kind of dark homour in that the only answers are blue passports SoVrInTy and longer queues at ports and airports. Oh, and of course make those...

    Post Brexit

    I suspect the Daily Mail had run out of stories about how trans disabled imigrants cause cancer and how being overweigh and simultaneously staying at home looking after your children AND having having a successful career working longer hours and earning less money than men doing the same job...
