But it is not a ‘discussion’ thread, is it? Why should it be reopened if only one 'side' can express opinions with out being shouted down?

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I don't know where to say this. But I saw a book called (I Think) 'The Film Posters of James Bond' showing the different posters of various countries. It is a second hand book. It is for sale at £10. Should I buy it?

If it's a relatively large "coffee-table" book, then yes.  I am a Bond poster fanatic, I have a book like that, and it is fantastic.  Not only the posters, but stories behind many of them.  Caveat: my book only goes through CR.  If £10 is within your budget, it's probably worth it.

Thank you for your advice. Yes it is a big book, a hard back. I think it only goes up to Pierce Brosnan films. I have seen it in a charity shop and almost bought it but did not know enough to be sure. I think I should have just bought it anyway to enjoy the great posters inside. I will return to the shop tomorrow to get it.

Personally speaking & for what it's worth - I think it's far too an emotive subject now, with very little chance of any middle ground being found between us all & no good has come from it (as been proven time & time again on there).

But hey ... we are supposedly a democracy, so let the people speak (well unless they come to the decision that no-one was expecting of course!)  ajb007/lol  ajb007/wink

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

The UK Politics thread has been closed many times but not because of opinions. It gets closed when arguments become personal, and sadly that happens all too often.
I don't want to get involved in a never-ending discussion on this subject, or for this thread to function as a surrogate for the UK Politics thread. So, everyone, please, I only want to know if there's a huge demand for it to be reopened. And no, 52/48 isn't a huge demand.  ajb007/wink

Question: How does the UK PM usually travel?

The german airforce has a (crappy) fleet of state planes which is usually used by the cancellor and the ministers. Is there something similar in the UK or is that a matter for British Airways (or Easyjet  ajb007/biggrin )

Thanks, I was merely interested in what he will use if he travels to the US for example.
