I wonder is TSR would refuse to invite him in if he became real life Prime Minister?
Well, they did say that it was permanent.

Btw on the main TSR House of Commons post (http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1165453) the Commons Bar link takes you to the Mk7 thread, rather than this one, just saying in case you weren't aware.

I think they'd probably have to if they wanted to survive his little eugenics system. I'd have to leave the Speakership and start a new life under the sea that's for sure.

Personally I would prefer the whole "escape to another dimension" plan, but life under sea wouldn't be too bad.

Plus he would probably just get a bill passed that would lift his ban, then hunt down those that imposed it in the first place.

Hello everyone. Just popped in for a cuppa.

I have had two debates over the last two days as to what the meal in the middle of the day should be called. Dinner it seems if you are from the north, lunch if you are from the south.

Does the bar menu make any distinction? Or define the middle of the day's meal?

(Those on some sort of weight loss/fitness programme for the next few months (well about a fortnight in all likelihood) may remember the concept of a meal in the middle of the day)

For as long as I'm Speaker, the bar menu does indeed make a distinction: the middle meal is lunch. The later meal is dinner. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Any other way is wrong and results in temporary suspension from the House. Though I must admit I usually do skip lunch, a nice slice of toast and a bowl of porridge will usually sustain me for more than long enough.

It goes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner for most nowadays - Dinner is your main hot meal - not a specific time; the reason for the north/south divide is the way jobs were divided - in the north, you were primarily manufacturing and had a hot meal supplied at the noon break, while in the south it was primarily a cold cuts style midday meal (Lunch) and then the main hot meal in the evening.

A massive cause of disappointment is when someone says its teatime and then offers you some biscuits or a scone (scon), rather than pie (paaah).

I quite enjoy some nice Indian tea registered in Ireland for tax purposes myself with a scone.

I'd like to say its fine English Tea but the box says its not.

I have Breakfast and Dinner, that's it.

Lunch would be basic, like soup or something like that. Which we never have.

Wouldn't want to claim too much expenses now would we?

Usually it's a case of:

Morning = Breakfast

Midday = Lunch

Evening = Dinner (main meal)

However, if the main meal occurs around midday and then I have something like a sandwich later on, Dinner replaces Lunch and the evening meal becomes Tea.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner. If I eat at about 4pm I call it Tea.

It is never dinner in the middle of the day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. I've never, ever heard anyone say anything different apart from online.

Definitely breakfast, lunch, dinner. Even if lunch is a hot meal, it's still lunch, dinner is always in the evening. And I've never personally eaten at 'teatime' anyway.

No, dinner is used to refer to the main meal of the day, so if you have your main meal at lunch time then you can't call what you eat in the evening dinner. So dinner can be anytime. Depending on what you eat in the evening it is either supper of dinner. Supper for a light meal, dinner for a main meal. Tea is not what you would say in a formal context, but it can be used for any afternoon meal however large or small.

This is wrong. It is always lunch at, well, lunch time, and dinner in the evening. It shall always be thus!

I find I always end up eating a weird times on Christmas day. Christmas dinner usually ends up being around maybe around half 3/4pm, so technically it doesn't really fall into any of these classes. Traditionally it's called Christmas dinner anyway though, so this is what it's called.
