I was one of those who pointed out the groupthink voting down of alien/Ishmael. He was voted down because he is a mild Sanders style socialist. But at least then he could express his point of view. No longer. He has been banned. What we have now on this site is a regime of censorship - supported by all the right thinking people of course. Think about it.

I'm not quite sure what is meant. It's going back a bit but when I used to do brunch, so to speak, it had to include champagne. I guess prosecco is close enough. Is that the sort of thing people have in mind?

Some posters are just plain irritating and it's nice to have a way of signalling that so I am with Ocean, Lemon and JanJal.

On every bus there's the usual kind of square squiggly pattern you can use to download an app that has all the bus information. It also tells you when the next bus is coming. But I found it added all sorts of junkware to my phone so I deleted it. Try it at your own risk.

Nuclear weapons, great power rivalry, drilling for oil and gas in the sea despite global warming. Learn from the mistakes of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan - not by not invading other countries but by ensuring we have sufficient weapons of mass destruction to avoid retaliation. What a wonderful future you set out for us.

So someone who raises doubts about a military parade is an acrimonious guest and is ethnically biased? I wonder would that count as 'playing the man not the ball ' - to coin a phrase. By the way, a Chinese patriot of my acquaintance recently pointed out that the Americans are not afraid of Chinese weaponry but they are afraid of China's GDP. A return to high growth combined with fairer distribution of wealth is China's best defence.

Nice friendly neighbourhood eatery and bar. Also has some hard-to-find foreign groceries on sale. Recently Diego, the owner of Cantina, started placing some of his imported Italian stuff there for sale too. Ben, the owner, has recently introduced a very welcome drinks happy hour.

Absolutely excellent restaurant. Great lamb and chicken kebabs, koftas etc. Great nan bread and vegetarian curries. A huge menu so there'll be something for everyone. Easily the best curry house in town. When I first went some time back it was dry but I can confirm that they now sell beer and wine. They also seem to have no problem with you bringing your own drinks as we did last night. It's right next door to Diego's Cantina so very easy to find. Two of Kunming's best restaurants side by side.

Had a great dinner here the other night. Superb food and service and a friendly crowd. First time at Vincent's new place. Will definitely be back.
