If we can get our hands free to type from the constant facepalming, we should be able to post on this topic.

Continuation of the previous thread:

I appreciate that, Across - which is why I said 'when this is all over'. The fact remains that there are a goodly number of people who would feel disenfranchised if 45 went. I see no other way to give them a voice and a stake in the country.

Sorry. The quote was approximate and not exact.

cozietoesie · 22/07/2017 21:23

Oh Dear. I guess that someone ought to be thinking about a new thread? Grin

illegitimateMortificadospawn · 22/07/2017 21:26

So much rich material to choose from for the new header. Someone else should do the honours in the tradition of our collective.

Ah Hah. Sounds like you're in the mood, illegitimate? Wink

Republicans plan to raise taxes on those in blue states in order to pay for tax cuts for those in red states.

There's a vote on Tuesday? And then it goes to 45's desk for signature? (Which it was might not get.)

cozietoesie · 22/07/2017 21:48

Ignore that 'was'. My autocorrect reminding me of its presence, I think. Grin

So who's going to start the new thread?

It has to reference Sean.

The Russia Sanctions bill really puts Scrotus between the devil and the deep blue sea, doesn't it? But I have a feeling he'll side with his butt-buddy Pootie in the end. Ha ha. Get it? In the end. Grin

Across has had a cocktail! Smile

I think he has no choice (also known as an issue with Kompromat).

AcrossthePond55 · 22/07/2017 22:23

Across has had a some cocktail(s)!

(White Linens to be specific)

FTFY cozie Grin hic!!

BTW, did you know that gin & soda with a splash of Ribena tastes pretty good? My local grocery has just started stocking it. I'd never had it before so I'm trying it with everything. So far, so good!

cozietoesie · 22/07/2017 22:28

Never tried it. Grin I stay pretty .........uncocktailed at the moment, (The better to ignore the siren song of The Big Bible next door. Trust me - you don't need me reading from Revelation!)

illegitimateMortificadospawn · 22/07/2017 22:41

I love that Ribena is exotic in the US. It is ubiquitous here & my kids get through a lot of blackcurrant squash. My Dad told me a while back that 95% of UK grown blackcurrants go into Ribena/generic blackcurrant squash. I can believe it (though I wish they were easier to get hold of for making blackcurrant & vanilla curd).

Catching up slowly. Hackmum - "I used to love Soap. Don't know many people who remember it!"

I remember it. One of the funniest things of all time.

"Confused? You won't be after this week's episode of Soap!"

ParanoidBeryl · 22/07/2017 23:27

Haven't caught up with the full thread, but I note
45 thanked Spicey for his service, but did it through the medium of SHS.

No personal tweeting from 45. Sad.

An so we bid a fond adieu to this thread's episode of........
