Who says they cleared off..? They were born there. What, I can't make
friends with people in other countries now..?

Perhaps you have a different definition of friends. For me a friend is
someone
who I can phone

Apparently, phone wires extend beyond Little England.

and meet down the pub,

That must reduce the available pool significantly

Especially as Neil has previously told us he doesn't drink beer or go to
the pub.


And when did I say that Billy?



Have you forgotten already?


So it would seem. Do enlighten me.

It was almost two years ago, so no doubt your memory has faded:

Tbh most pubs these days are now just family (ie you get to enjoy

I
doubt it would affect many of them as they can make more profit selling
coffee
for 3 quid a cup. The old style boozer pub is long gone except maybe in a
few
places here and there.

I take it you don't visit Wetherspoon pubs?

No idea. I tend not to take much notice of the bewery name when we drop in.

It's not a brewery.


Fine, I don't take much notice of the conglomorate owners name when we drop

in.

I take it that you're not a beer drinker, then?


Like cigarettes, beer is something that you have to aquire a taste for
because
its so digusting. I never bothered.

Perhaps you have a different definition of friends. For me a friend is someone
who I can phone and meet down the pub, not someone I have to fly miles
to see maybe and shell out a small fortune to do so.


A friend to me is someone I relate to, common interests and such like.
Distance doesn't come into it in the present era of t'interweb. I speak
to my friends in the US on the phone often, and as a result would like
to visit.

I do have friends I can go to the pub with, but that's not my sole
definition of the word.

I like both, although I was forced to give up smoking due to price, not
for any other reason. I still drink occasionally, but again price has an
effect.

Forcing people to give up what they enjoy by pricing them out of the
market achieves little or nothing except raising tax revenue from the
wealthy, but I'd better shut up or I'll get too political even for this
group.
