15 years but Margaret Thatcher was PM for 11 years and would have liked to have gone on for another term. Did that make her a dictator? If people vote for the same party or leader, then that's the...

I never understand these complaints about repeats. There are far too many programmes on TV for me to ever have time to watch and so I welcome as many repeats as possible. There are also plenty of...

Did that channel used to be on the same satellite as Sky many years ago? I used to love those long train journeys filmed from the driver's cab. Or maybe it was a different channel? I now have to buy...

How many times does it have to be explained that the Lisbon referendum promise was made prior to the treaty being ratified? Once ratified, there was no point to having a referendum because a vote,...

I love the way some people arrogantly tell employers how to run their business, whilst at the same time knowing nothing whatsoever about the business.

Absolutely right. Mellor often displays an unpleasant side to his character on air. Having read more of the taxi transcript, it's far worse than I originally thought. Mellor's appalling bullying,...

The word pleb was certainly in common usage up to say 20 years ago but in my experience it was always said in a mocking, jocular manner. I never heard it said to someone as an insult. It's a bit like...

What have the "powers that be" got to do with anything. He's being released under licence in accordance with usual prison regulations. Maybe you think stiffer rules should apply to Tories?
