I so wanted that response to be, "The lucky buggers!"mr angry manchester wrote: ↑Thu Sep 17, 2020 7:35 pmI've got to 60 without having to bother about this stuff so I think I'll leave it alone!
There's a similar precedent in my family, my gran got to the age of 91 before she knew what a lesbian was. She found out via the News of the World. At our house one sunday in about 1975 she suddenly addressed my Dad with "Jack, what's a lesbian?" Mum went red, I started laughing, Dad replied with "nowt you need to bother about" and the matter rested.
A couple of weeks later, she asked again "it were in 't paper again about em, what are they?"
This time he enlightened her
The response was "the mucky buggers!"
We've got democracy! Who needs solidarity?
