      Penworthy Thank you Newbie.
      Scheherazade - Brexit is the best thing that could happen to this country - and the rest of the U.K. Even if you voted against it that shouldn't stop you from being loyal. The referendum result has to be respected.

      Scheherazade not by me it doesn't. Respect a fraud? Cambridge Analytica and their kipper pay masters broke election rules. our young people have been denied the opportunity to live and work in 27 other countries - and they couldn't even vote. And who voted to trash our economy?

      RichardB The best thing that could happen to this country? sure - if you like xenophobia, hate and economic disaster. Sure, the result has to be respected - even if the tow lynch-pins of the Brexit campaign were both admitted to be bare-faced lies within hours of the result. And what's loyalty got to do with it? This is (in theory) a free country, and we are allowed to express our personal opinions.

      BellaM Here we go again. Penworthy - I agree with you. But I don't think it is PC to approve of Brexit. I'd put on your tin helmet if I were you.

      Penworthy I don't really see where being P.C. (or not) comes in, BellaM. but I'll take your advice and keep my Britannia-style helmet handy (although I'm a hardy soul).

      J.net I'm with Scheherazade - the campaign was as flawed as it gets. On a personal front, our little business has been badly affected already, since we deal with EU countries - I'm sure we're not alone. And a friend and his family were targetted during the racist attacks after. I won't respect any vote that was brought about by lies and manipulation if you don't mind.

      John Alty What does celebrating St Georges Day have to do with Brexit?

      J.net Simply replying to later remarks, John, because I agreed with them. But I don't celebrate St George's day in any case. Not only was George not English, but he had never set foot on English soil, so I don't buy him as representing England.

      Tony Don't think there is, P, but you can change your status by clicking on 'Change' and erm... changing it. If you want to leave it blank, change it to the 'less than' sign followed by the 'greater than' sign.

    Yes, I suppose so but I think it's lovely that we have such a huge variety of accents in this country. I have a theory that it came about mainly from the influx of various tribes centuries ago; you know, Picts, Scots, Vikings, Saxons, Angles, etc. ...

    Penworthy At last - back on line in the library but I think I've missed access to some replies and they aren't on profile (phone gives limited access.). Unable to be online at home, as I'm prioritising a new bathroom. If you saw my bathroom, you'd understand.

    I've finally been able to catch up with these interesting comments. I was actually born in Bolton, which has its own distinctive accent, too.

    Penworthy library computers down for 5 days.Having to do this on phone. Aarrrgh! After watching Corrie last night all I can say is; have the scriptwriters taken leave of their senses?

      Seagreen I have to be honest and say the last time I watched Corrie, Elsie Tanner was probably still in it, but I’m in Kuwait at the minute so I’ve caught bits of a storyline where Eileen may or may not have pushed her husband in the sea? Or something. But you’re right, sounds like twice a week is enough.

      Penworthy Well, Seagreen, all the male characters have suddenly taken up boxing. There they were in the gear in the gym and the feamle characters were spectators, never having expressed an interest in boxing before. Just about the only male character not participating was Ken Barlow, probably because the scriptwriters thought it was inappropriate for him to risk a cauliflower ear at his time of life. It was a ridiculous and illogical episode. If it's proving difficult for the writers to fill in several episodes a week, perhaps the series ought to go back to its original two episodes. For several months now, I've been thinking it's going down the drain anyway. I say this as a long-time fan.

    Hello, Richard B and Dolly. Yes, I'm fascinated by accents and dialect, too. One disappointment about living in East Anglia now is that I don't hear enough of the accent, as there are lots of southerners, northerners, and foreigners. Accents ...

    I'm not sure how this wall thing works and politics may be unwelcome but I'm bursting to ask a question about the E. U.'s attitude to Brexit. Why do they want us to say how much we'll pay? If there's a legitimate charge why can't they tell us what it is, exactly what it covers, and the period it spans? As it is, it seems like a bribe. "Slip us a few quid and you can have it."
