    It seems random, but what were the other 2,499 tunes?

    If Eire was to leave the EU and become part of the UK again, like it ought to, that would solve the backstop problem. On the other hand we could get out of Northern Ireland and hand it over to Eire.

    I have a thought. Is this the death throws of the Conservative party? Their grass roots membership is very small and a good percentage is ex-Ukip. Most of their income comes from trusts attached to wills. A party that has The Moggster and Kenneth Clarke in is a very broad church. Boris Johnson is aiming for the hot-seat and he will cause a few resignations. Schism anyone? Brexit has just become a sideshow.

    A thought, do the "peers" (I assume pretty conservative still) still have influence as much as they did? I know the"royals" get a lot of press but is a lot of the "class system" in decline? Here across the pond I think we developed our own class system.

    Most people seem to be class conscious, I bet you don't associate with certain social groups. I don't know the political balance of the house of lords, although each party does tend to promote its own interests when proposing candidates there is a degree of balance, and only a few are hereditary peers nowadays, there are more life peers. It used to be that the House of Lords could stop a commons bill dead by voting it down. They can still stop it, but the commons can contest it nowadays, I am unsure of the conditions needed, but the Lords can be by-passed I believe.

    ABBA, Alison Moyet, Beach Boys, Beatles, Bee Gees, Benny Goodman, Burt Bacharach, Cilla Black, Clannad (speaking of the Irish issue), Classical music, more Classical music, even more Classical music, guess what - Classical music, David Bowie, David Essex, Diana Ross, Duke Ellington, ELO, Elton John, Eurythmics, Fleetwood Mac, Glenn Miller, Holst (Er, that's more Classical music, isn't it?) ... What was your point?

    'The most difficult criticism that a writer has to comprehend is silence.' So speak up.

    That as you chose them any might have seemed equally appropriate.

    And so, Nigel and his team of carpet chewers are ahead in the opinion polls. We are about to let the criminals lead us into dark places. In twenty years time, if we still have a civilization, this will be an interesting miniseries on Netney.
