Gosh, tell me about it. "Mr. Blue Sky," "Evil Woman ," and "Can't Get It Out of My Head" have been on repeat all this morning. ELO really slaps though.

My favourite political clash of the year: Two UK MEPs (Member of the European Parliament) last month; Green MEP (against Brexit) is challenged by a Brexit Party MEP (erm, for Brexit, I think) about how qualified she is to comment on the possible economic effects of Brexit...

He looks increasingly embarrassed as she replies. Very funny riposte.

If we're going to include both Bontees, shouldn't we include sir walter raleigh as well, since he had about 900 posts to his name before switching accounts for privacy reasons, leaving his official post counter at 4512 even though he has about 5412.

Stupid articles like this nonsense that try to make out that the Beatles hardly played live compared to others, in this instance Queen. Topped by this piece of rubbish;

In fact, The Beatles only toured between 1964 and 1966.

If you're going to say "In fact", make sure the fact is correct.

The Express seem to have replaced Princess Diana with the Beatles, @meanmistermustard; almost daily stories lately done with little reason and even less connection to, or basis in, reality.

The Express' daily Beatles story is always clickbait.

I've just spent the best part of an hour trying to find any record of how many posts he had before he changed accounts, and I can't. It seems Joe did a great job at hiding the old account, he's assigned the old posts to the new account but I don't think they count to the post count, have a look at this post for example: https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....4/#p234080

It was made before the account was created...a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Unless someone kept a record of how many posts the old account had?

According to this post, it was somewhere in the 900's, so i'd use 900+his current post number as the base and either say ~5412 or 5412+ since i can't find an exact number but don't want to leave him out when the Bontees are included despite being on 2 separate accounts.

Hoping that Peter Jackson's "Let It Be " redo, due October, will be everything it can be...or, at least, not too disappointing
