A side point, the geographical location of the UK parlament could be seen as a problem when it comes to equal representation of all parts of the UK, in that it makes it more London focused, to the detriment of all other parts of the UK. To some extent more so to the English regions, as they lack any form of assembly to act for them in the way the other members of the Union have.

@revjonty and it's parliament not 'parlament' as a response to your hijack.

Some threads are designed for hijacking, though. As threads over a certain age don't attract payback, I'd say, unless someone is asking for H&S type help (in which case, report), I'd ignore in GD.

Please don't forget to come back after your problem has been resolved and select a best answer.
Also consider a kudos [+★] for any member who helped.

Good Point, Guy - good to see you back on here - @shortylumber

I tend to read 'stickies' if the topic seems relevant to me - but not always - the header would need to draw people in for it to work I think.

Ahh but it's all the fault of the remainers, or is that the brexiteers? Meh, no matter it's all the fault of the European Union whichever way you spin it...

 

@extreme_one Or 2? 😂

What happened to mavis's doggy?  Smiley Tongue

 

Seriously though completely hijacking threads should be discouraged. Slight digression from the main point to give other examples or linked subject is ok up to a point as long as it comes back to the thread subject.

If it's in GD it does not matter really it's just chat anyway, report content don't think it applies there unless it's abuse
