Oo, I hadn't seen that! Something of a panel-debate show so far. Clearly a very different format to this new quiz show.

Is the question-setter a former Only Connect question-setter as well?

Do you mean Technical Difficulties? That was more of a panel show, than a quiz show, though.

I like the colours, although I personally don't like white on the edges of a flag. The shapes are not especially meaningful as far as I can tell?

If the Duchess gives birth to her first in the US, could he or she potentially be elected President at some future point?

Both his exes were at the wedding. The Zimbabwe-born one and that other one.

whos dad was some hot shot pilot in the R.A.F

Henry was never in the RAF. Perhaps you're thinking of William, who most certainly did get special treatment, as he is a direct heir.

He's been in two Army units. This is the uniform of the first. His brother is in the same uniform at the same rank, but with the added insignia of an aide-de-camp (which he is, supposedly, to his grandmother). Their wings are different, as the older brother got his wings in the air force, and the younger got his wings at the Army Air Corps (the second unit he was a part of). He had to change units when the secrecy of his deployment was broken. Flying Apaches was a lot more anonymous.

Not German, I I suspect it's an allusion to Germans separating their recycling.

this needed trained doves

They probably had drone-attacking eagles on the rooftops, who would make a bloody mess of the doves before anyone could saw aww.

HRH Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may visit NZ by raveronix in newzealand

We are an independent nation, capable of making our own legislation about the privileges afforded to our head of state, and their family and extended family.

We could easily decide that anyone in that family that is not our HoS, the HoS's spouse/partner, or the immediate heir, have no official standing in NZ. If NZ is to offer them any special welcome, they need to be actually employed by the UK foreign office, or some other such ministry in a diplomatic capacity.

He's the head of a county, and the grandson of heads of state. It's pretty weird.

By 'Commonwealth' he means 'Commonwealth Realm' not 'Commonwealth' with no modifier. The Commonwealth includes plenty of republics including South Africa and India whose heads of state are a President of some sort.

How the UK has modified some of it's old unused phone boxes by Bunt_smuggler in europe

I'm guessing what's inside the phone box is a steel locker, which contains within it a portable defib. You probably need to call the emergency services for the access code to the locker.

You could just plagiarise Tim Minchin's UWA speech?

Haka for kids? by [deleted] in newzealand

Then sports day wouldn't be the most appropriate, but at a day celebrating world cultures would be better, imho.

You could use something like this as inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uV92hd7SeJA

As with all cultural traditions, it is important that teachers and students understand the meanings, emotions, and contexts behind the tradition (as appropriate to their ages).
