    Can't please any of the people any of the time.

    Its obvious these people just want to cause trouble. They will use anything to stir it up.

    Would help if they weren't such a tulip employer.

    Funny thing is the people who tell me how tulip they are to work for are white.

    There is an element of damned if you do, damned if you don't. Yes there's some tokenism going on, of course there is. I also think someone at RM genuinely felt it was a good thing to do. It creates a talking point and hopefully prompts people to educate themselves.

    That post-box actually looks rather smart.

    Seven in the song.

    Red, Yellow, Pink, Green, Orange, Purple, Blue.

    Always annoyed me that the order is wrong.

    I'm sorry to be the one that breaks it to you, but there are infinite (or at least uncountable) colours in the rainbow. So I want indigo and violet separate.

    What about all the infrared and ultraviolet coloured people? Just ignored because we can't see them.
