    he showed me some phone pictures of some women his son had been banging when iPhones were new

    In the new spirit of this thread, I'd like to point out in a pedantic fashion the fact that this sentence contains semantic ambiguity caused by noun phrase confusion.

    The phrase "he showed me some phone pictures of some women his son had been banging when iPhones were new" could either mean that his son was banging the women when iPhones were new, or that Andy Rourke was showing you the pictures when iPhones were new, rather like the classic headline "Judge rules on nude beach".

    As Andy Rourke is quite old it's therefore hard to know when this happened.

    Well if you will read the Torygraph (lol at the targeted advertising).

    It may not be widely known that it costs the UK more to support NI than the EU but it's also not widely known that we export more to Ireland than we do to China.

    Does the rest of the stuff have any structural purpose or can it be cleared out relatively easily?

    Yes, it's probably holding the rest of the house up. It can't really be cleared out relatively easily, it can be removed and the basement converted to a full one but it's expensive.

    Our flat is a ground floor one in an 1865 terrace and has exactly this, but it's more earth than rubble. Our coal chute is still there as is the cover at pavement level.

    I once heard a brushing noise outside and went to the door to find an elderly couple brushing the coal hole cover with a wire brush so they could take a photo of it. Apparently ours is a good one. They live up north and come down to London on the train to 'spot' coal hole covers.

    Nowt as queer as folk.

    Which is good because the consensus seems to be that if Varadkar is on board then the EU is likely to be on board too.

    It's weird how as a remainer my perception of success has pretty much changed from remaining to getting a decent deal instead of no deal. Maybe this is Johnson's strategy all along, threaten no deal as much as possible so that when he gets some half decent deal he looks good. I feel like I'm being played.

    Boris Johnson and Leo Varadkar had a constructive meeting and 'can see pathway to a deal'.

    This is quite surprising.

    That's a @villa-ru level of detective work.
