Speaking of "Two Shags" Prescott, how about Blair creates an ideal new cabinet post for him ... Minister for Waste!

A perfect role for someone who is, let's face it, a completely and utterly fucking pointless waste of space!

Twins? If you mean who I think you mean, that'll be Mounya and Yiolanda . I think they were best mates rather than twins. And they were gorgeous! I'd imagine they still are. Are they still presenting on Nickelodeon these days? http://nickdisk.co.uk/images/nickuk/photocards/mouyio95.jpg I had a massi...

IMO the Acorn Archimedes was a classic computer. Wish I could have another go with "Pro-Artisan" for old times sake!

I certainly did. And I'm happy that Bury Metropolitan Borough Council is finally out of Labour's grubby little hands. Bury, isn't that a Benjamin Shatliff stronghold ? Looks like 'politics and itv1' wasn't a very popular mandate :shock: Bibby, Robert Andrew (The Conservative Party candidate) 2048 4...

Given the choice, who would you rather have as the head of state, be they elected or unelected?

:arrow: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

I hardly ever launch programs from my Start menu. I've always used desktop icons or the Quick Launch bar next to the Start menu. In fact, in any new install of Windows XP (or Server 2003) on my PC's, that two columned Start menu is usual the first thing to be switched back to "Classic" mode. I've ne...
