    Default "I'll ask him to share."

    Said by our esteemed PM at a press conference one afternoon when handing over to Dr Bloomfield. I can't understand why she must use such hackneyed sayings (EVERYBODY says it!) Why can't she just say, "I'll hand it over to Dr Bloomfield.", or something similar? Why can't she think of something original?

    I have pointed this out to you in the past - you do realised PF1 is not your personal blog? I am tempted to move all your recent threads on similar topics into a single thread - easier to find (or avoid).

    Fair call - I'm all for free speech but Roscoe mate, you're stuff is constantly negative and as boring as batshit.

    Take a break for a week. Find someone mowing their lawn and smell the freshly-mown grass.

    Please be kind, Roscoe is honestly doing his best.

    Thank you for your kind words, R2x1.

    I have been posting topics that I have thought that people on this forum would find interesting and would like to comment on - as they have done, and apart from Jen, there has only been one other dissenting. comment, and that was only after Jen's comment.

    I was not aware that there was a limit as to how many times that you were allowed to post. I have not seen that in the rules. It seems that that may be the case. It would be helpful if I was made aware of the limit.

    That was me you are mentioning Roscoe. You must admit you were being a dork though!

    I merely stated that it was (probably) your best; since I earnestly disagree with your opinions, I left mine out of your thread.
    (Senior management here thinks my post is insulting to you - I guess the view depends largely on where you stand.)
