    You were the one who brought up vacuums, claiming that they were underpowered because of the EU, or some such twaddle.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

      Oh, you mean the EU regulation limiting the power consumption on household appliances and lightbulbs. I hope that's the first to bite the dust. If that means I hate British business, good luck with that - it's Phillips who've been the main beneficiary as far as I can see. Their dimmable LED lights are about £6 a pop instead of £1.99 for 3 of the traditional variety. When you've got dozens of the bastard things (remember when those embedded ceiling lights used to be cool?) and most last a few months at best, it gets expensive.
      I need to know what's lacking in your life that you need someone else to legislate as to what you can 'plug in' in your own house?
      His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

        My wife doesn’t need a 2kW “massage device”. She’s got me.

        Actually, your wife doesn’t need one either when I’m around...

          How do you manage 2kW output? And surely there'd be some bruising...?

          I'm curious (but not in that way) and so is my wife (possibly not in that way)...

            I've just received my new passport. Turnaround was really quick. I filled in the form online on 30 November and received it today. That includes them waiting for me to send my old passport back.

            I'd say it looks smart. The dark blue looks almost black.

            I really like the identification page. It's far more robust than the old one as it's fully plastic rather than coated paper.

                  Some very odd people in this dark and sinister corner of CUK.
                  I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

                    Like my German - EU one then...
                    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
