    Just as a point of interest, I've noticed a big difference just going from male to gender-neutral (with a name most can't pronounce yet alone recognise :P ) on here.
    I know, it seems to be very strange. Can I take pride in the fact I think I know the correct pronunciation?

    Shouldn't be more than 25 minutes, but allow yourself a little extra just in case!
    Ah okay, thanks

    Normally 30 odd minutes, but it's very unreliable so leave much much more if it's urgent. I've literally just come home from that exact same journey from Paddington except we got stuck for 45 minutes outside Edgware Road and the train then terminated at Barbican...

    If the board says "Severe Delays" at Liverpool Street, give up and get the 205 bus instead.
    Thanks a lot. As for the buses - do you buy your ticket before you get on the bus?

    With some of them, you have to have an oyster card, but I'm pretty sure you can pay cash on a 205 if you don't mind the driver and other customers giving you London's customary dirty looks :P I suggest you do get one anyway though - they cost £5, you then "top-up" at ticket machines before you travel and touch it onto gates if you don't know - the tube fares without them are ridiculous anyway, it pays itself back in a couple of journeys.

    Tivoli gardens, and I'll look up more when I'm there. I'm much more laid back than my dad about these things, he's been looking it up for weeks! Going to Malmo for a day, definitely.

    Usually if I'm in London I'll get a day travelcard (last time it was roughly £7 for off-peak zones 1 & 2).

    I might get an Oyster, thanks

    Weiner by name, weiner by nature.
    A journalist from a British TV channel was trying to ask him some pretty straight forward questions that were not pressing or difficult, nor were they biased or unfair.
    Apart from being incredibly rude he makes irrelevant comments and then starts talking about the weather and Monty Python. This guy is a complete moron. How can he still have any supporters? Why has his wife not left him yet?

    You know, Americans are more forgiving than we would be. Look at Clarence Thomas!

    I remembered you told me you changed your name and remembered it involved a colour but that was pretty much it. To be fair though plenty of you melt into being essentially the same person to me

    That interview is ridiculously awkward and bizarre. It would be funny if Wiener wasn't such a cocky tit.

    Could someone please provide me with a brief argument for the stance that the removal of Morsi as Egyptian President was not a coup? You don't need to agree with said argument, just give me a valid hypothetical please. Someone said it to me last night in a bar (oh the stimulating conversation of we lobbyists) but the conversation moved on. It's been bugging me for some reason and I don't know enough about the situation.

    One argument I have heard in favour of his removal is that the Egyptian military and their allies were moving to protect the Egyptian constitution. Morsi has been accused of changing the constitution 'illegally' or with little mandate to enact changes - these changes were also perceived to be an attack on Egypt's secular society as Morsi's reforms heavily favoured liberation for Islam but reduced the rights of Copts and other minorities.

    It could be argued that Morsi was removed to protect the fabric of Egypt's secular society and defend the constitution from a president determined to transform Egypt into an Islamic democracy. A removal/impeachment rather than a coup, if that makes sense. It's all resting on how long the military take to restore democracy, though.

    And also the fact that it was called for by millions of protesters, which supposedly gave the action legitimacy. Though surely that would just be some kind of 'popular coup' - if such a thing exists!
