    We could opt for bringing back serfs?

    Why when I was talking about the quality of the BBC, I didn't mention C4. Not sure that they 3 of you did, I did and 2 followed. Not exactly the same, just the nature of the medium. it just boils down to the fact that you didn't know that the BBC transmitted 2 programmes on tuesday on 231. If you really want me to, I am happy to go through all of your future posts and point out anything that may confuse some.

    I think you might want to finish taking your English lessons first. I can see why you like so many posts, but make so few.
    Do you want to try writing that again- in such a way that the meaning is clear.

    "Why when I was talking about the quality of the BBC, I didn't mention C4."
    You start that as a question- so ideally you need a "?" at the end, not a"." Otherwise it sort of makes sense, however your comment caused three of us to think you'd made a mistake over which two programmes you meant.

    "Not sure that they 3 of you did, I did and 2 followed."
    This really needs some work- as it stands, yes you used English words but not in any form that really makes sense. Oh and "followed"?

    From there it just continues to go down hill.

    "I am happy to go through all of your future posts and point out anything that may confuse some"
    Please do- based on this sample it could prove to be quite amusing.

    No it doesn't, it's actually spelled "pesnt". I use my own spelling, as an expression of my own identity. Don't you go telling me that's the "wrong" spelling.

    No, but seriously, "peasant" wasn't the word I was thinking of.

    Actually, I had a boss years ago who used to refer to our customers as "peasants". Happy days...

    At times like these I marvel at the educational content of this forum.

    Written like that, "BXP" makes me think of "UXB".

    I don't see why not. Time for a referendum. To deny one would be to go against the will of the people.

    Ah, you've cheered me up no end.

    On t'other thread, Burndie has expressed, in no uncertain terms, his displeasure at the continuing use of BP to denote the Brexit Party. Historically speaking, Burndie has mostly been referred to as BP on these forums, although I have always preferred the foreshortening of Burndie to that of BP ;)

    Sky? Ch 231 is ITVB + 1.
    Freeview? Ah! BBC News.

    So are you telling us that the BBC News Channel broadcast two different debates, one after the other, that nobody else knew about??

    I have it from a present Classicist and two who are no longer here (I think; one might be) that it is hoi polloi not the hoi polloi.

    And @Geoff Thomas wasn't one of those to whom I referred. So there are four.

    Thank you. Much obliged Sir. (no sarcasm intended).

    'Tis similar then to "PIN number".

    Of course I could simply look all this stuff up, but it would rather take the fun out of proceedings.

    I'm ugly enough to be able to cope with a little sarcasm.
    It may be similar to GNU Not Unix.

    Great minds and all that. I considered using that example, but dismissed it as a bit too geeky.

    C'mon; if you know make sure everyone else knows you know.

    No debate followed by analysis - do keep up. But the analysis could equally have been described as a debate.

    Boris and Hunt going to the final tonight, folks. Meaning we have one saying we will leave October 31st, the other there or thereabouts. On paper at least, not so bad for leave supporters.

    The Tories can then pretend they at least allowed a 'cured' remainer to stand v Boris.

    Boris will then romp home, of course.

    You know something we don't?

    The vote will close at 17:30 and the result isn't due until about 18:00. Gove is still in the race.

    Will Boris lend Hunt votes just to get his own back on Gove?
