    The most Italian thing I ever saw was in a hotel in Bologna a couple of years ago. The room had an ashtray with a no-smoking sign stuck on it.

    The headline "Why Nigel Farage is wrong about..." is self-explanatory. He is wrong because he is Nigel Farage. No further explanation is necessary. Personally I'd rewrite it as "How Nigel Farage lied...

    The other alternative that I've used for years is just sit there and wait until your buddy does it all. It works wonderfully and has zero risk (to me).

    I don't know, do many people believe in colonising the third world or taking back Indian lands because Jim Davidson did another Chalky joke? These crackpot theories fuel a very sinister undercurrent.
