Historically a Labour Stronghold?

Oddly yes.

I think the real problem is that what economic news they get is from the newspapers and TV news, which I find to be very shallow compared to what's available on the internet.

it's possible to take this place too seriously.
like worrying about post-counts
might be a sign for you to knock forums on the head for a while.

:rolleyes:

This is an example of how a smiley can be deployed to highlight poor English - in a more than slightly knobbish manner.

Spelling help

The plural of forum is usually spelled forums; the plural fora (as in the original Latin) is chiefly used when talking about a public square in an ancient Roman city.

(sample use of smiley to scorn spelling/grammar-correction fails)

Like that. I saw a Darth Vader one once.

Did you used to cruise the Gents of the Death Star, or something?

The mighty neo liberal steam roller that crushed all before it from the 1980s to the beginning of the new millennium has morphed in recent years into a Charlie Carioli clown car that now can not go two yards without loud bangs, smoke pouring out of the engine and the doors dropping off.

Poor Latin really.

Always a red flag for how expensive someone's education was.

Another one is people who use disinterested correctly, instead of thinking it means uninterested, they will have had an expensive proper education.

we agree about "disinterested", that bugs me too.
but english isn't latin and "fora" isn't the english plural of "forum" for the purposes of describing internet discussion groups.
my (grammar school) education was cheap -- well free actually -- but i did get o-levels in latin, greek and english.

I can see now that this new mediums for datums has created an agendums for a consistent Latin plural rules change.
