Re: VECW

VECW = Very European Civil War Do you have a set time frame/period in mind? i.e. Basque parliament 'breakaway from Spain' talks and the violent clashes it stirred up, or the Brexit vote and the way it split Britain, and caused concern for other European leaders, etc I have loads of ideas ;) Grant

Their “new” website is absolutely appalling
I totally agree with you there Clive. I went onto it a few weeks back after they had announced they were having another sale, and I just gave up looking for what I wanted!! :evil:

Cheers Alan, it's something I'm looking at getting into myself.
