If I have to pick one cultural event, should it be Hamlet with Moriarty, or the Hokusai exhibit?

Dusty - why the need to repress the subject?

Surely talking about it is the way to assuage your guilt?

Typical Tory obfuscation trying to change the subject to hide their massive deficiencies and failures.

Coracle - what guilt? You don't know how I voted

Re the questions asked:

when did you last visit an art gallery?

About a year ago

what did you see?

An eclectic mix of things

how did it make you feel?

One painting in particular I found I absolutely loved, so the postcard of it is now on the mantelpiece, also made me sad that the limit of my art is doodling.

do you think more people should visit galleries?

Yes, the arts is an important part of our cultural landscape.

If I have to pick one cultural event, should it be Hamlet with Moriarty, or the Hokusai exhibit?

Hokusai. I love Japanese stuff.

Who would win a fight between a monkey and a badger?

A monkey. Two words for you: opposable thumbs.

Who do you think is the better lover--Michael Gove or Boris Johnson?

I imagine them both to be incredibly selfish so neither. Shudder.

If you had to call on one member of the A-Team to help you out in a crisis, who would it be and why?

Face. Practical and good looking

I am bored of talking about it and discussing it. I come on RoF for some light relief. You are judgmental little toad, Jayers. And everyone is assuming an awful lot about the way I voted and getting it rather wrong so fvck off, little man. You think you can lord it over everyone with your arrogance and your quippy ways but really you wish your life was different, so whatever helps you get through the day but go splurge your misery on someone else's thread, mmmkay?

That's more like it! Roll up your sleeves and have a fight rather than trying to divert attention with small talk.

Nice bit of kit that Pinko.

I sometimes find pilots watches to be a bit busy but that is really attractive.

Agree Wellers. I have been lusting after it for a while. I have big wrists and it sits lovely.

Get some ASAP!

Otherwise you'll be under-dressed and look silly.
