A mile??? Well that settles it. Nobody would ever travel that sort of distance for any reason.
I may have mentioned this before, but I have had people tell me I must be mad, or super fit, or both, because I cycle the WHOLE MILE (!!!!1!) to the pub. :roll:

It takes <5 minutes.
Why that's over 12 miles per hour!!
You expect Mailites to believe that.
In their mind cycling only exists so we can hold up traffic and mince about in lycra.

Rather amusing for all those Europe's going to fall to fascism takes.

Dutch pro-EU parties were on track for a surprise win in the European Parliament election, according to an exit poll Thursday that suggested that populist Euroskeptics had failed to make previously forecasted gains.

The Labor party of European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans looked set to win five out of the 26 seats allocated for the Netherlands, according to the Ipsos poll for the Dutch public broadcaster NOS.

"There is a clear majority of people in the Netherlands, if you count them altogether, who want the European Union to continue playing a role in tackling problems that need to be solved," said Timmermans, who is the lead candidate for the European Parliament's social democratic grouping.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's Liberal party was set to win four seats, as was its coalition party, the Christian-conservative Christian Democratic Appeal (CDA).

Euroskeptic parties were predicted to fall well short of expectations. Official Dutch results were, however, not due to be released until after Europe's polling as a whole wraps up on Sunday.

But he's ex-Paras, which I would have thought made him second only to The Flash in mail-world

Another Milkshake Attack. This time on a veteran.
Brexit Party army veteran, 81, in milkshake row 'was acquitted of attempted murder' over shooting of unarmed civilian in Northern Ireland in 1974
MacNaughton – who was in his mid-30s at the time – was found not guilty of both charges by the Belfast City Commission on September 5, 1974.
No surprise there.

Yep he was found not guilty and the Army paid £5000 compensation. How does that work?

£5000 doesn't seem that much these days but although I don't know how much property was worth in Northern Ireland in 1974 in that same year I bought a three bedroom terrace house in Cardiff for £4800.

The rule of thumb that seems to work OK is double the amount for each decade.
So that's a multiplier above x16.

The first prognoses of the German results have been published.

The AfD continue their unstoppable rise (© BBC News) by losing votes in comparison to their last Bundestag share. These numbers are only provisional but that foul old Nazi, Gauland, is already blaming ... wait for it ... Brexit!
