Ban sliced white bread

And isn’t ‘incomers’ just short for ‘blow incomers’?

We know that phrase is definitely on the ’banned’ list already.

Can we ban foreign mustard now Brexit is within eye poking distance? Can’t stand the bland, vinegary tasteless muck people eat as a inferior alternative to proper English mustard.

I was once fingered out in a restaurant by a friend for requesting it with my steak. At no stage in my existence have I ever felt so protective of this wonderfully spicy condiment. My friend suggested I have some fancy French crap instead, from that day to this I have remained loyal to Colman’s.

SUVs are generally heavier / less aerodynamic and so more polluting than similar, non-SUV models. They also pose considerably more risk to pedestrians as their increased height causes more upper body injuries even at relatively low speeds and they can easily mount pavements / ride through barriers when out of control. There is no need for people to adopt pseudo military vehicles in the city - we used to mock the US for driving around in these things, now (sadly) Europe seems to be adopting them.

They are heavily marketed of course, as the margins are much bigger than on smaller cars.

Interesting article on it in the FT this morning: [www.ft.com]

We shouldn't ban fingering in restaurants. This is a fun and wholesome activity. You don't need to be Richard Gere to do it either. [www.youtube.com]

I'd avoid mustard though. You'll get complaints.

Yes. Generally. But not in all cases. Restricting specific attributes of vehicles makes more sense than just saying "SUVs". It may sound like I'm splitting hairs, but many SUVs are hybrid... and some are actually quite compact..

The EU already banned Colmans French Mustard for you back in 2001.

Is it just me or has Coleman’s got a lot tamer in recent years? But if any mustard needs banning, it’s that limp dribbling American kind. Ugh.

Ready made Coleman's is not that nice..

Mustard needs to be made fresh from Powder and cold water.

It should be made 10 - 15 mins before use.

Good Dijon mustard is worthy of its place at the table, along side a good English mustard.

But I don’t mean the aberration that is ‘French (but not really) French mustard’ all brown and unpleasant.That stuff is banished to ‘Banished Condiments Island’ along with sweet mint jelly.

However, please don’t treat this thread as a sharking pond for your anti-French nonsense. I like the French, even the awkward ones.

Seeing as Corbyn is going, all be it slowly, like a verruca that gets attacked daily with salicylic acid. I’d like to propose a ‘ban’ on the Labour Party using the frikkin’ ‘MANDATE’ word ever again.

That overused word is one that’s turned-me-off from what they’re saying, more than when anything else, it’s like a ‘mute’ button in my brain.

For the sake of democracy, I’m broadening my ban on ‘MANDATE’ for all parties. However, if you’re actually going on a ‘MANDATE’ then please carry on, the word is now all yours.

I’m mindful to add ‘transition period’ to the list. Unless of course you’re on your way from Luke to Lucy, Paula to
Paul.
Then the phrase is all yours.

In observation, this thread is the place to #DeBrexit and #DePoliticise
our language. Please feel free to knock yourselves out.

For the next few weeks is it possible to ban people having a pop at other people on various different threads ?

It's fine to Comment constructively on the statement they make, but don't try and cripple the player with abuse as it is Christmas and goodwill to all people
