  1. Brexit - what will happen next

    This was posted on my FB wall. The astute among you will have noticed that I declined to become involved in most of the hand wringing and wailing yesterday. I'm not going to start today, but I did realise yesterday that there is a need to clear the air. I don't have many friends who voted...

  3. Brexit is looming. Has anything changed for you yet?

    I don't think I've phrased my question very well, but it stems from the fact that some companies are stockpiling medicines and foodstuffs. There's already a thread to debate the pros and cons of Brexit, so I'd encourage people to avoid that on here, but I'm wondering if you've taken any steps or...

  7. The disappearance of Madeleine McCann

    Just started watching the documentary on Netflix. Such a sad but interesting story. I hope we find out the truth of what happened one day. FWIW, I think the parents know a lot more than they make out to believe.
