    In the interest of balance I for one will not be voting for Mrs May and it's nothing to do with her U-turns. I'm just not on the electoral role in Maidenhead (though I've broken more than a few in my time as I sailed around the globe doing the business for HM).

    Cmdr. McDod...

    Don't you also get the impression that this UK General Election & Brexit thingy is getting a bit unpopular with them many Engrish political and economic expert posters that asiduously post in here...?

    Funny time for you to mention Engrishmen and foreign maidenheads...!
    How do such scruffy ones score such exotic beauties...?
    Just look at Jeremy Corbyn... ;-)

    We Brits, speaking generally you understand, have the attention span of gnats unless it's about threats to the Empire and if it offends our sensibilities. So just wait, once the word about Elsztain's bespoke missile defence system for Mount Sion Airport hits the hustings, they'll be back.

    And as for exotic second and third wives, it's the British passport that draws them in. Like bees to nectar. Couldn't get rid of them when we were alongside at Valparaiso I tell you.

    I Think you are counfunding your Exotic Beauties... laddie...
    The ones you met in Valparaisos harbour were the “Professional” kind of Exotic Beauties...
    The ones Jeremy Corbyn married are more of the “Amateur” type of Exotic Beauties...

    What is any wife but a whore on a long term contract? Ow, I've just been given a clip round the ear (all part of the fully costed service agreement though).

    Bit outdated Cmdr...

    Many a grandson is “ in a relationship” with birds that bring far more bacon home than themselves...
