    Erm it's still a newspaper unlike the Independent. It's like the Guardian in many respects though it's quite depressing reading the comments section of anything related to the UK and the EU. Always on about the UK wanting their raisins and eating the cake.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    No doubt in thirty years, after China has declined or been engulfed in debt and Africa is the up and coming country, everyone will be saying it is imperative our kids learn BongoBongo or whatever the latest trendy language there is called!
    Lived in a flat at uni with a guy learning chinese/mandarin (back in about 1992)

    But then his dad worked in the Hong Kong embassy and he was going to get a job there so it was probably relevant for him!
