https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-21/tasmania-may-become-first-state-with-optional-gender/10517106   ???  This is a bit like optional blood type or DNA.

Our tax system already has the inclusion of Gender = Indeterminate. 

I'll have to see if I can look up the job title of a person who waits tables in an Indian restaurant and is of indeterminate or optional gender.  ;D 

I believe the Hijra (hermaphrodites, eunuchs and transgenders) of the sub-continent are now recognised as a third gender,
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

I think they're known as Edna Everages. Easily distinguishable from the binary norms by their characteristic blue-rinse hair styles.

So back on topic, chaps — would there be any interest in setting up a CR0 poll to ask (a) how you voted in the last "Leave Europe" referendum, and (b) how you might vote were there to be a further referendum in 2019 ?  If there is interest, I will create one.

Or maybe not.  It looks as if this forum has lost the ability to create a new poll or add a poll to a thread ...

Well I voted to remain because I/we at that time didn't have enough solid information to make an informed decision and so went with the better the devil you know scenario.

Now that we've had the two-odd years of debate and real info that should have preceded the first referendum in a true democracy (I'm implicitly assuming there will be a second) I can't decide so I'd probably not vote. But there's a couple of months to go yet and who knows what will tip the balance one way or the other!

As far as I'm concerned, they can shut down every T/A in Britain,  mostly  Dirty places with bad food anyway, ;D (although there are some exceptions)
I didn't vote, so I don't care one way or the other, not much will change for us older generation.

I fear that it will, Les.  For a start, the medications on which many of we older folk depend originate in Continental Europe.  If we leave the EU, medication prices may rise, the NHS may be forced to ration them in order to keep costs under control, and so on.  Leaving Europe is as insane as electing Donald Trump president of one of the most powerful nations on Earth.

Leaving Europe would potentially affect virtually every aspect of our lives, so I think it is not surprising that it is receiving ubiquitous coverage and discussion.  Prawn Salad's initial post was very much on-topic (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-curry-industry-brexit-staff-shortages-bangladesh-catering-association-a8677911.html) but understandably we have drifted somewhat off-topic since then.  Perhaps we should re-start this thread under "Talk about anything other than curry".  Those such as your good self can then ignore the thread if its content is not of interest.
