    It is quite funny, I'll give you that, though it looks more like the brain of a Labourite than a Liberal.

    I agree with you actually it does seem to be more like them.

    You aren't that dissimilar. Just different sides of the social democrat coin.

    It's not referring to the Lib Dems, it's actually American, as should be evident from a quick read of it. As such it is talking about liberal members of the Democratic Party.

    I gathered that after seeing lots of other angry Republican pictures on the site.

    Given that many big players in the gas industry like BP, Centrica and Shell have warned that Britain's shale gas reserves won't amount to much, and the fact that the industry still prefers to explore for and produce oil in the deep and harsh waters off the coast of Scotland and Shetland, I think it's wishful thinking to ever consider exporting it or having it as a "stop-gap".

    I could never be against it on principle, though. However it is inherently more environmentally damaging and stricter regulations may be required should it ever become more than a small company drilling a few holes near Blackpool. It would be excellent for the region, too.

    Thanks, it's on UKIP funnily enough - basically trying to assess if UKIP is just a protest vote. Really topical and interesting, but I'll be glad to finish!

    No hyphen in Lloyd George.

    His personal name wasn't, but it was in the peerage title.
    Yes, indeed, because legally he was David George. To enshrine the "Lloyd" bit he had to hyphenate it. But I doubt Rakas was talking about Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor but rather plain old David Lloyd George; that is, the man who did stuff not the man who became a Tory stooge. More especially given he held the peerage for a matter of weeks before his death.

    Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor and 'plain old' David Lloyd George were the same person, which makes your squabbling over the hyphen irrelevant. Both 'David Lloyd George' and 'David Lloyd-George' are correct references to the same man, just as we may refer to both 'FE Smith' and 'Birkenhead' or 'William Cecil' and 'Burghley'.
    It's irrelevant only if you have no care for history and are willing to conflate 12 weeks of one year with the rest of a person's life. Lloyd George was not Lloyd-George when he was Chancellor or Prime Minister.
