A third try…
@phoneboy Juicy! My daughter always stops to harvest the bushes near me, they never look quite this tasty though.
@matigo It seemed so. Compared with previous and subsequent neighbours they generated sooooo much heat - they must have had the heating on all the time. Or maybe it was a cannabis factory!

@hazardwarning I used to live above someone who had their heating on all year. 30 degrees (100F) and they're still cranking it out - made summers even worse especially as it's a modern building with all the proper insulation in walls and roofs.
On the plus side my heating bills for winter were minuscule e.g. that recent winter with the massive snowfall I turned a radiator on just once for about an hour for the whole winter!
Hi, everyone! Hope you're all well?
Sorry I've not been around for a while.
@matigo Maybe no trek fans have a spare $123? :-D
@larand I'm a member of Electoral Reform Society as well as a party that supports STV-PR (per Republic of Ireland's system) so I've got dozens of reports and market research bits showing what our various parliaments' compositions would potentially be under a other systems and it always seems _fairer_ even though the same parties would win and some of the more unpalatable parties get seats - the price for believing in democracy I guess.
But I think the UK probably would have gotten into the same mess with a different system and the same two main parties; but I reckon one way or the other it would have been sorted by now (as a fairer voting system would give electorate a chance to punish parties more easily).

@matigo As much as I dislike a significant number of the current crop it's the crappy old fashioned electoral system that deserves a significant chunk of the blame for entrenching them and their ilk.
Should the monarch decide to do this I will be up in arms (literally). :-D
