Why not just buy/invent a mechanical process like what happened during the rest of human history?  Cheap labor retards human progress.  Also every crime, accident or liability committed by the foreigner, charge the traitor who brought them in.  Real costs of labor, not the public subsidizing their profits.  S/F....Ken M

That rather strikes me as asking 'Ground first, or Parachute?' :D

Sugar first, then bag, then hot water (poured on the bag, which is summarily beaten into submission 10 times with spoon), add milk ( for me just enough to make it change colour), then stir, et voila, nectar of the gods in a cup.

Oh, I should say, make it Yorkshire tea. Imho It tastes the best, and we have to sustain those Yorkshire tea plantations somehow.

What kind of unBritish barabarian are you?  Tea is made in a tea pot, properly warmed beforehand. Water just boiled from a kettle with loose-leaf tea or decent tea bags if loose leaf is not available,.  Milk in the cup before the tea, obviously.

Crystallisation like that happens with honey, too. You can reconvert it in the microwave, using low power and/or short bursts. You're not trying to boil it, just persuade it back into the better state.

When Rick says his wife adds the tea last, does that mean a teabag into iced water, or hot tea (um, solution/tisane/tincture/whatever?) added to the hot water?

Per wife, hot tea last ;}

Hhmmm... so this is what happens to your brain once you retire 🍵

I have always been a hard core and shameless tea drinker.  :D  I think it started on being raised on iced tea, and just discovering that iced coffee sucks in comparison.

Agree on ice coffee, YUK!

On the hot and humid days in the Mid-West U.S., slightly sweet ice tea is a good recovery tonic after working outside. 

In the south, below the fall line, sweet tea made with super saturated sugar water is the way to go.

That is how most of it is made, a truckload of sugar, and a spot of tea.  

On my annual trip to Florida, I buy a jug of sweet tea and mix it with bourbon.  I have an insulated container that I sip out of over the 6-8 hours we spend sitting on the beach.  Somedays I have to refill it at lunch time.

Thatcher likely a Fascist? Only by the criteria stating "all those that are against Communism could only be Fascist", perhaps.

Please do not channel Ken Loach. Or Scargill.

Or the guy who wrote V for Vendetta or the Watchmen

She wanted AIDS victims to be sent to concentration camps, I remember her news articles in the Sun newspaper.

She was actively anti-gay.

She brought in the horrible Poll Tax system that caused the worst riots in a generation throughout the country in 1990.

She destroyed the manufacturing industry purely for anti-union politics reasons.

She doubled unemployment in her first term in office. Only her victory in the Falklands war allowed her a second term.

Her economic poilicy's resulted in "boom and bust" throughout the 1980's

 

That's just the couple of things I can think on top of my head. She may of appeared good to people from abroad but not to me. I'm sure people in the US have things to talk about to your leaders.

From Spain, another batch of deranged Labour PMs, plus some other Tory PM like Heath would have mean we would be able to get Gibraltar back.

Unions received their due. Look up the Winter of Discontent.

Also, perhaps she was the first major politician to introduce Global Warming, another minus.

But from that to consider her almost Fascist, there is a long way.

Of course, I would prefer to rely on the knowledge of the locals.
