    It’s another “Bombshell”. The Daily Mirror have found Lord Lucan. Again!! That’s at least 50 times over the last 50 years and every time it makes their front page. Gas shower of wasters.

    Nigel Farage makes his valedictory speech in the European Parliament this afternoon as he bids farewell to a magnificent career of insurrection.
    “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”
    Never has the famous quote been more appropriate.
    I shall raise a glass of something expensive to the Nigester this arvo but I suspect this won’t be the last we’ve heard of him.
    Top man and a great Briton.

        It will probably be a drop of Malbec from a bottle of 2016 Doña Paula selección de bodega Gualtallary I’ve had for a while.
        It could probably do with another year or two but what the heck.
        Can’t think why Argentinian wine should be any more expensive after Brexit.
        I think you’ve swallowed the lies of Project Fear rather than good wine Fisted old chap.

            That’s probably because the NHS is already getting more than £300 million a week since the referendum.
            Doh !

            Oh, you found a post where I said Sasamach would never happen? Link please.

            Anyway, where are you getting your figures from?

            That’s for Friday night Fisted.
            Will you be raising a glass of cheer to the economic success of the mainland ?
            Ireland is rather tied up with it you know …

            …deffo will be raising a glass to Boris for honouring the will of the UK electorate as democratically expressed by referendum…never thought it would happen…not sure we’ll be toasting the same outcomes though…

            I’m in the camp that thinks the Oxford comma is otiose.
            Yourself ?

            ( You’ll note Oxford should have a capital O. I fear you’ve spent too long as a camp follower of Brother Barnabas )

            You know, just as a little note, pet, you really are a little too free with your use of spaces.

            Please be aware they are not necessary between the end of a sentence and a question mark, as per your comment above, nor are they required after the use of a bracket, again as per your comment above.

            Toodles.

            you called, charger?

            oh, i see… you want me to mop up another grammatical p1ss-puddle you’ve done

            go and change your pants, and hurry back. here goes:

            “I’m in the camp that thinks the Oxford comma is otiose.
            Yourself ?”

            “Yourself” is what’s known as a reflexive pronoun.a reflexive pronoun is always the object in a sentence; it can never be the subject.never, ever, ever. is that clear?

            so, for example, we could have:

            “charger, darling, dinner’s ready… it’s time to stop fiddling with yourself and come downstairs,” said charger’s mother, exasperation in her voice.

            but we couldn’t have:

            “please wait, mummy. myself is rubbing one out, nearly there, i’m using your wedding album,” pleaded charger, breathlessly.

            i’ve explained this before, so, please – let this be the last time. i can’t help you if you won’t at least try to help yourself*

            *see what I did there?

            i’m just finding philip pullman’s hysterics on the issue absolutely hilarious, though not as hilarious as bb’s response.
            the lack of capitals is a sympathetic nod to bell hooks btw.

          5. Charger Salmons

            Brother, unless you start using capital letters correctly I simply can’t take you seriously.
            Such low standards might be okay for the Irish pub at the Costa Del Expat but not for me chum.
            Sort yourself out.

          6. Charger Salmons

            However, seeing as you have brought this up.
            “Yourself” is what’s known as a reflexive pronoun.a reflexive pronoun is always the object in a sentence
            Strictly speaking ” yourself ” on its own is not a sentence as technically a sentence must contain at least a subject and a verb.
            So think of it as a ” stylish ” flourish rather like the lack of capital letters at the beginning of sentences.
            You’re welcome.

          Doña Paula 2016 Malbec? You’ve had it “a while”? Two years max? You might as well bring it to McDonalds and wash it down with a Big Mac and curly fries. I suspect another chaptalizing new world fruit Romanian sauce might be your next purchase.
