Re: Yet another scandal involving an MP

well Excel tells me it is 49.999999999999900
so 50 ?
What's the catch
And Mrs Robinson - released in 1968 - by Simon and Garfunkel - I was working in a Little Chef and the manageress was a Mrs Robinson about the age of Ann BAncroft.  But NO - I didn't !!!.

why would a 19 year old man go with a 60 year old woman.
opps sorry silly me - the same reason a 19 y/o woman might - for the money !!!.
