Bit of a thin rag, but was some welcome competition for the incumbent.

So making an example of a poor deformed apple, which will probably be chopped and eaten, both fine and laughable? I disagree.

'cos you ain't 'fruitist'. Starts with a single apple, then you start seeing fruit bowls popping up, then they club together and get a tree. Next thing you know there's orchard next door.

And there I was earlier defending the rights of a pineapple only to be held out to ridicule , now our home grown fruits are suffering the bigotry of post brexit hysteria . Apparently we share 40% of our DNA which makes us, roughly speaking ,second cousins removed so is it not time we gave them a little respect instead of comparing them to a small garden bird ?

Would you let your daughter marry one though ? Maybe not . wink.gif

Why does serious debate always end up being hijacked by the playing of the race card ?

Ahh, one of the difficult questions, like, why are we here?, where are we going? and did you remember to switch off the gas?. One of those questions. Still, according to NWN, the only people who will mug us in a west berks car park are west berks council. Reassuring. cool.gif
