    Reminds us old Baptists too much of the 60's and early 70's where it was used to mask (cough sputter) other 'fragrances'.

    • Scottish appeals court rules suspension of Parliament is unlawful. Meaning that, like Trump, Boris is an evil tyrant.

        On 11 September the Court of Session, the supreme civil court of Scotland, ruled that the prorogation was unlawful, but did not give an order to cancel it pending a hearing at the Supreme Court which was scheduled for 17 September.

        Has nothing to do with Boris being a tyrant. That's your editorializing.

              • The Supreme Court rules that Parliament was suspended illegally. Boris will now be carried off to The Tower where his head will be struck off (or whatever the modern equivalent is). Bercow (the Speaker) said that Parliament must convene without delay.

                    • Like all good tyrants, Boris thinks he knows better than 11 Supreme Court judges. His days are numbered.

                      • Pilgrim Fathers
                        Newly discovered documents have revealed the Pilgrim Fathers settled in Boston in Lincolnshire for several months before they escaped England.

                        It was previously thought the group only assembled in the town shortly before attempting to leave for the Netherlands in 1907.

                        But Boston Council found they worshipped in the town three months prior to their unsuccessful escape.
                        Its heritage manager Luke Skerritt said the discovery was "totally unexpected".

                        The documents, found in the county's archive, have now gone on display in the town's Guildhall Museum, where some members were jailed after trying to leave the country.

                        As Puritans, they had been persecuted for failing to attend Church of England services, leading them to try and flee via the Lincolnshire port.

                        "They didn't just come down to meet a ship," said Mr Skerritt, who discovered the documents.
                        "This group of people - which includes really important members of the pilgrims like William Brewster, Richard Clifton and Thomas Helwys - they were worshiping here for up to three months.
                        "This is totally unexpected."

                        The group eventually left Boston for the Netherlands. Many later crossed the Atlantic on the Mayflower, landing at Plymouth Rock in the United States in 1620.

                          Thanks, ff. None of my ancestors were on the Mayflower (John Cotton was the first, in 1633).

                              What do you think will happen? What's the word on the street, as it were?

                                It’s not clear yet. Too many factions, Corbyn sitting on the fence being inscrutable, Boris hinting at lawlessness. The EU summit this week may force matters. Another referendum seems to be an outside possibility.
