British Institutions are a Rarity

Advantages: A British Institution
Disadvantages: Gets a few hot under the collar

Supposedly, this kind of policy making is going across all media streams; anything with ‘3’ in it is going to be banned; surely this is appalling discrimination for the number ‘3.’ I’m surprised those whose lucky number is ‘3’ aren’t outraged. Indeed, is ...

Review of How do you feel about the end of Page 3 in the Sun newspaper?

Its had its day - like the women who moan about it.

Advantages: Makes the girls good money
Disadvantages: Feminism

Review of How do you feel about the end of Page 3 in the Sun newspaper?

Review of HS2: Can the UK afford the high speed rail network system?

Cancellation Expected

Advantages: Fascinating debate topic
Disadvantages: Too many to note down in one sentence

HS2’s concept has prompted an annual general meeting up until 2033 for ‘Rail-fans’ across the country who meet-up fifty two times a year anyhow to discuss trains. In fact the usually sedated anorak folk have got rather hot under their anorak collars regar ...

Review of HS2: Can the UK afford the high speed rail network system?

High Speed Drain!

Advantages: Quick
Disadvantages: Quick to lose money

The Eurostar has made its first profit! Since 1994, the year of its launch, it has hemorrhaged cash every year and for the first time ever it made money last year. Traffic has started to rise again and it squeezed a healthy earn of 208m from its 800m taki ...
