    "Breach of promise" is not a legal term. In English law a promise is not legally enforceable. There has to be a contract, for which there must be "consideration", i.e. payment.

  2. In one of the threads on the European elections, I can't be arsed to look it up. You claimed the result confirmed another victory for Leave. In fact, pro-Brexit parties (Farage's old and new outfits)...

    I'm afraid I can't help you without googling. It's just a turn of phrase. Like "common-law wife/husband", a person you're living with in a relationship, without being married.

  7. Said the man who thinks 35% beats 40%.

  8. No, surveys as before, evidence from medical professionals, testimony of FGM survivors. Like the man says, it's hard to get correct numbers - the figure of "about half" could be a huge underestimate,...

  9. So now you're resorting to accusing the studies of selectively interviewing people. You have no evidence for this.

    In mathematical terms, once you interview about 500 randomly chosen people in a...

    Any road, what has come to light is that the two most frequently mentioned days in songs are Sunday and Monday. There must be some significance in this. Sunday is the second day of our brief two day...

    Pointless thread but you still post in it, LOL. Thanks for the link, I hadn't heard that song before.

    Morrissey has been in some controversy recently, performing with a lapel badge for an obscure...

    I agree with Fork Me.

    I think I'd better lie down.

  13. Indonesia has one of the world's highest numbers of women and girls undergoing female genital mutilation and cutting, newly collected data from UNICEF shows.

    About half of all Indonesian girls...

  14. OK, my mistake.

    The first study researched 6 provinces (there are 34 in total according to Wikipedia), including East Java, the second most populous with 38.8 million or about 15% of the total...

    Be patient, Dordie. She will be replaced by Boris Johnsonwhoever wins the Tory leadership contest, next week.

  16. Not rocket science ... male circumcision is a tenet of Islam, Indonesia's main religion; FGM isn't. Personally I'm glad that I live in a free country where things aren't blocked because they offend...

  17. I've asked you twice where it says that, but you haven't answered.

  18. Well conveniently enough, that can be neither proven nor disproven.

    How about this one?

    "I write the songs" is indelibly linked with Barry Manilow.

    But it was originally written for, and performed by, David...
