If, on the other hand, you have no values beyond greed and self-promotion, you can shrug off each and every example of your abhorrent behaviour. Which of those is...

Assuming that the Lib Dems want them.

Re: TINGE to CHANGE

How did everyone get on? Contrary to Iris's predictions, we retained our Green MEP and they gained seats elsewhere.

Re: Broken Barrel Adjuster Screw

Re: TINGE to CHANGE
