    I only ever read it when Liddlejohn's spitting nails

    Unfortunately, most of the time he does those supposedly funny parody skits these days.

    It's a bit like banning threads on the 2 world war during the 2nd world war.
    Which is why I've stopped buying newspapers. For those of you who want to do nothing more than go on and on and on, go right ahead.

    The rest of us want to talk about other things occasionally.

    If you start a Brexit thread - let it rip!

    I mean we're expected to sit through endless radio shows with the likes of Katie Hopkins, Julia-Hartley Brewer and Nigel Farage ranting at us.

    For the last 20 years I've had to endure endless Eurosceptic rants every time I visit Britain.

    Perhaps if you'd actually lived here during those 20 years, you'd have seen why...

    For the UK, yes.

    Do you consider it to be some triviality of less value than last year's X-factor winner?

    There's going to be a rash of news in the next few months about the single most important issue in modern British times - are we supposed to ignore that?
    When does anything, anywhere actually make any new points?

    The Daily Mail doing their Hang 'em, flog 'em, send 'em back routine; The Guardfian banging its drum about global warming - everything everywhere is like a stuck record!

    Except, ahem, dare I say it, some of my threads.

    There are umpteen issues that have been of significantly more import to the UK since the end of WW2, but I suppose in your cossetted little world you remain blissfully ignorant of them.

    Of course not, but if it is nip and tuck for you it wouldn't come as a surprise. You are monumentally dreary and one-dimensional.
