Re: "The Sinner."

We've been watching that too. Very light and entertaining - doesn't tax the grey matter too much - beautiful locations and people - just right for winter afternoons.

Re: General Election matters

There are even some lifelong Conservatives who will vote tactically to keep them out.

Re: Northern Ireland politics.

Am reading that right - that Sinn Fein are standing aside in favour of Unionists implying that remaining in the EU has higher priority for them at this time than the republican cause?
