Can anyone suggest some really long EU directives/documents that would have been issued in the last 10 years. I'm looking for big chunks of Irish text... (Other suggestions of sources of large freely available Irish text welcome...)

My vote is for the stars of "Hidden Figures" (Johnson, Vaughan, and Jackson). Inspirational, collaborative, patriotic - all the virtues you want in a statue!

To be fair to the guy, he did always say he was going to "lie in front of a bulldozer." And now he has, for forty straight minutes.

Dear - my husband Sam is terminally ill. He is uninsurable for foreign travel but we'd like one last trip to Europe with our 5yo son at Easter, safe in the knowledge Sam's health is covered by an EHIC card. Could you please rule out 'No Deal' Brexit. Thanks!
