I only needed to see this to vote yay. This is a matter of public urgency

remarkable lack of respect for them imo

They’re literally war heroes, you’d think that would get them maximum respect

Moving Parliament to Barnsley is too serious for this thread unfortunately but I know that would get 100% support from anyone whose opinion matters.

  1. Designated pedestrian walking lanes (Fast and slow lanes in each direction on all pavements in the country)
  2. Miniature versions of supermarkets (Bo’s Local, Tesco Express etc) are subject to MORE rotation of stocked products, not the stasis they are currently obliged to provide
  3. Salt in sweet confectionary products is not banned outright but goes back to being the niche/marginalised option
  4. Babies are born with the power of flight
  5. More frequent checks on how fast baths, sinks and showers drain in any and all travel accommodation options

3 is a big vote winner I think

It should be, Bammers. It really should be. It saddens me that I think, in reality, it will be deemed too contentious on this community of ours.

I’ve thought for a long time that pavements could be more like roads in that you could walk on the left-hand pavement, thus preventing people from bumping into each other. We’d need more crossings, but that’s a small price to pay for well organised pedestrian traffic.

I think I’ve become a more relaxed person in general recently but people not walking on the left is one of the few things that still causes me to fume internally when I’m out and about these days.

You had me until this. I could get behind fewer novelty pasta shapes, but all the authentic classics needs to be left alone

why would you want twisty and not boat though?

Oh you do, it’s “stay left”

By boat do you mean Conchiglie / shell pasta?

Why not both?

I’d also like to see a lot more respect for pigeons, and slightly more respect for @The_Respected_User

that’s my rule as a left-hander and left-politicker
