    the only thing i've noticed about the brits i've worked with over the past 7 years is how they're always bumming the fags.

    I have voted Tory since I was old enough to vote.

    Sorry.

    I just hate the left with a passion.

    Anyone ever noticed that Anti-Christian is considered acceptable, but anti-catholic/anti-papal is considered ill-mannered.

    Only ever voted Labour once, when I lived in a safe Tory constituency.
