Agreed, but in many instances the original version can be so minor or obscure, it's not ignorance to not know a cover is a cover, because hardly anyone heard the original.

5 may only be a small number in itself, but the number of votes that would have been required to make up that 5% is pretty huge, approx 200,000. The 10% margin is equivalent to 80% of the number of...

Does your brother want to ditch the Samsung contract, but keep the phone? Assuming he got the phone at the same time as taking out the contract, that won't be possible. Even if EE allow him to cancel...

Which means 12% came from just one council, whereas each of the other thirty-one contributed an average of just 2.84% of the total yes vote. Whichever way you look at it, the Glasgow vote makes up...
