    What a scene in A & E with son, sans eyebrows and a cartoon blackened face and stand up hair, being cared for as Mother is dragged away by the Police while insisting that she was "only teaching him a lesson".

    They have never been the same since we stopped putting them up chimneys and banned regular beatings.

    Can I suggest an Xmas gift - a peizo electric lighter for the gas poker? One in either hand should be manageable.

    I'd disconnect the gas poker and let him freeze until he learns.

    We must introduce her to our Son 2, who has been known to put an electric kettle on the gas ring before now...and despite all instruction to the contrary, insists on turning on the gas poker (to light a coal fire) before lighting the match...with resultant mini-explosion once he gets round to putting match to gas jet...he has nearly parted company with his eyebrows more than once this holiday, but doesn't learn.

    I now know why my instinctive reaction when our student Ts asked for an open fire in the lounge was 'You must be joking'. That said, I was lighting coal fires (apparently without incident) and filling hot water bottles with from boiling kettles, when I was 6. Are children more cosseted, or just more stupid these days?

    No. 1 Daughter home from uni, and full of the joys of Christmas, just put on "The Best Christmas CD In The World... Ever" to echo round the house; immediately followed by a POP as the whole house electrics tripped off. "RESULT!" I didn't shout; but I was strongly tempted to claim that it was going to take me several hours to sort out.

    You look out the armoured gloves, as you know that any rustling wrapping paper will be attacked by the cats in full claw.

    They will even ignore turkey or treats to play with it.

    When you ( in this case, a daughter) parties so late that she gets up this morning, showers, and puts on her dressing gown to join us for some breakfast, she is asked;

    " Are you planning to rinse the shampoo out of your hair?"

    Perhaps she is just having a go at all those jobs you promised to do but didn't

    As for fruit pickers, I know strawberry farmers who bring seasonal workers from non-Eu countries every year (eg Russia etc) and have queues of people wanting to work the picking season here...no unpicked fruit there....

    "EU immigration has continued to fall since 2016 and is at its lowest level since 2013. This is mainly because of a fall in immigration for work, which is now less than half the level it was at its peak in the year ending June 2016." Office for National Statistics

    You get taken to court in U.K.for calling some one a Nazi

    "May" signed the pact, and not one of the U.K. citizens were asked if they want to financially support 3rd world unskilled people, apart from having no where to put them, and our homeless are still homeless.
    If they...

    The countries being referred to as 'their world countries' here are NOT countries in the EU, and the UN is NOT the EU.

    Regardless of whether or not Theresa May was right to sign the UK up to this pact - it has nothing at all to do with the EU.

    This is a rant that has no relevance...

    This pretty much hits the nail on the head.
    I think that, if polls of Conservative party members hadn't shown that most members think that holding another referendum, or not going ahead with Brexit, would pretty much mean the end of the Conservative party, and that members would apparently prefer...

    Although you don't like it, is a fact that the 2016 referendum, like almost all referendums in the UK, was advisory.
    If the referendum hadn't been advisory, there would not still be any argument as to whether or not politicians should be supporting leaving the EU on the basis of the result of...
