From Reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/ukpolitics/com ... the_first/

Quote:
So does Lizzie chop his head off now? What happens next?

By 1965, capital punishment had been abolished for almost all crimes, but was still mandatory for high treason until 1998.

On 20 May 1998 the House of Commons voted to ratify the 6th Protocol of the European Convention on Human Rights prohibiting capital punishment

He's been saved by Europe.

Some pro no deal Brexit propaganda concentrating on what’s important, there. Not medicine, not funding, not trade. People coming back from holiday will get their booze a bit cheaper.

Blue passports AND duty free?

This Brexit Dividend is really paying out.

But the duty free limits will be tiny in comparison to what you can bring in from EU countries currently. Just one litre of spirits, for example :D

I've said this to my chums. If an alien came down to the UK after 9pm it would swear we were a nation of gambling alcoholics. I don't watch TV much but I record car shows and every advert I skip is gambling and drinking. Every show is sponsored by some casino. It's just nuts.

A wise move. Save the ciggies to exchange for food and services.

Even for cigarettes, go further abroad than France or Germany and the duty evaporates anyway.

This amused me but then quickly made me sad as I hadn't realised he had died.
