Don't forget Genesis too - a lot of them are quite keen on that (and I don't mean Peter Gabriel and co)

Most of the above posters have covered the 'classic' stuff - I'd personally recommend any Gabriel era Genesis, any Pink Floyd, Yes with Jon Anderson. Aqualung and Thick as a brick by Jethro Tull, If...

The funny thing is that left wingers accuse the BBC of right wing bias and right wingers do the opposite. My own opinion is that the BBC is broadly neutral, or at least even handed in its criticism...

The problem is that people are confusing their opinion - that gay marriage is wrong - with fact and saying that gay marriage doesn't exist. They are entitled to their opinion, however misguided we...

I don't blame you for your response. I'm not gay and I found his attitude to your marriage offensive, so it's no surprise to me that you said what you did. I'd have responded in a similar way if he'd...

Not in the least - people disguise or deny their sexuality for any number of reasons - fear, persecution or not understanding or simply not wanting to be gay, even if they are. Why do you think so...

Why do some Christians have such a problem with homosexuality - the bible disaproves of many things, but it only seems to be homosexuality that causes such outrage. Anyone would think they were...

and they'd all be wrong - plenty of people convert in (or out) of religions. People don't convert in or out of being gay.

So many people don't indicate, especially when turning 1st left off a roundabout, that some of them must be DS posters - would any of them care to enlighten us why it's too much trouble?

I've found the programme to be well worth watching - and who'd have thought someone who was such a repulsive politician would turn out to be an engaging and interesting TV presenter!

I can't believe how much I laugh at this programme - I've never liked Vic and Bob and usually find them completely unfunny, but I love House of Fools.
