    Good Morning from a freezing UK,

    I'm a refugee from the closing down Yahoo UK Message boards:

    The conspiracy theorists suggest it might be due to (what's laughingly called) our government, leaning on Yahoo because they don't like the adverse comments we post over here .. ;)

    I happened upon your superb board and wondered if you'd mind a very US supportive member from the UK joining in. :wine:

    I've asked the mods if it's OK - looking forward to their reply, 'cos there are one or two of us over here looking for a new home. :eusa_angel:

    We like to discuss the usual difficult subjects like Politics, Immigration, Religion and generally anything we think the politicians should be paying more attention to.

    Best wishes for Christmas:party:

    Welcome aboard. Where in the UK are you? I just sent a note to a friend of mine in Rockingham.

    Thanks for the welcome guys ..:eusa_angel:

    One question - how does one gain 'points' ? I can't see it mentioned anywhere.

    Problem is, apparently I can't post in my normal way of using comments and URL links, until I've amassed 15 points. :wink_2:

    Welcome

    While I am a Yank, I did live in the UK for several years, in London, NW1, near Regent's Park. Very posh! Ah the life of an expat. Worked on Fenchurch Street, near Lloyds.

    So, are you Tory, Labor, or whatever they call libertarians in the UK?
