Infact some older gentlemen would be outraged and abusive  if you forgot and put it in a half glass instead of a schooner.

I don't believe it!

I still can't believe that we aren't living an a post apocalypse Britain and that Judge Dredd still isn't 'the law'. My childhood reading told me that we would be by now.

a bit like in the 80's if you asked or a lager or beer they would always give you a half unless you stated  a half....

I worked in a bar in the 80's and if anyone ordered a half you had to ask who it was for, because a half for a lady had to be served in a special glass.  

How do you target a race, when you think a pb is definitely off the cards?

I agree with Tom, it can be just as satisfying to pace someone else to a pb.

If they do they will be going back on what Nicola Sturgeon has already said.

I have never believed that comment by Nicola Sturgeon to be honest or true. It was probably said to make the SNP seem less scary to the English electorate.

So 15 West  wrote : UKIP got 4m votes and 1 seat, Tories got 10m votes and 320+ seats
Alternatively, UKIP got 4m votes and 1 seat, Labour got 9m votes and 229 seats,
or SNP got only 1.4m votes and 56 seats, Lib dems got 2.3m votes and 8 seats.
or the SNP got as many votes as Plaid Cymru and the Greens.

Tories & Ukip combined got almost 50% of the vote.

Dustin, since it is a first past the post system in this country percentage of vote is irrelevant. AV was rejected in the last parlaiment.


I am amazed at the number of people crying foul today. Wether it be PR by Farage or it's all the SNPs fault by Labour and the LIb Dems.

I am proud that Scotland have chosen to vote with pride

But not with their brains.

Pudge, I think that you are wrong on that count, it was always going to be a win-win election for the SNP. If Labour had formed a government they could have excerted some influence, but since the Conservatives are back in they can claim that the tories have no mandate to govern in Scotland and put an idependence referendum back on the agenda.

I thought that it was interesting that I didn't see a single BNP candidate when I was watching the results last night. Is UKIP now the acceptable face of racism in this country?

Even if a pb is unlikely you could always go for a course best. It's always more motivating to set some sort of target, however modest.

I added my own box and voted for PR. It was more of a protest against a continued wasted vote, against a lazy MP who has one of the safest seats in the country. An MP who is consistently in the list of the 10 laziest in the House of commons.
