Where would you put the air con on the Underground? On deep level trains there isn't the space, plus where would you remove the heat to? With air con you are replacing the warm air with cool air,...

The hotter the better, and this is from someone who commutes by Tube into central London every day for work.

I'm quite lucky, I don't sweat a lot and heat doesn't make me feel unwell.

I still don't understand why you would throw your children out if you found out they were gay - what would that do? Nothing. Would it change anything? No.

I think certain types of restaurant or at night restaurants should be expected to be a child-free zone but during the day and earlier in the evening I don't see the problem.

Probably selective "Christianity" - no problems with women menstruating, the wearing of mixed fibres or the eating of shellfish, but a problem with man lying with man... That's usually how it goes.

They probably can't - they probably knew of one "out" gay person, whereas a lot of people aren't out at work, or don't make any mention of their sexuality which then makes everyone assume they're...

Our guinea fowl was delicous.

Not sure it would have served four as the packaging suggests but it gave 2 of us a generous Christmas dinner with enough meat left to make a soup with afterwards.
