    Default Scarfolk is a town in North West England that did not progress beyond 1979.

    Scarfolk is a town in North West England that did not progress beyond 1979. Instead, the entire decade of the 1970s loops ad infinitum. Here in Scarfolk, pagan rituals blend seamlessly with science; hauntology is a compulsory subject at school, and everyone must be in bed by 8pm because they are perpetually running a slight fever. "Visit Scarfolk today. Our number one priority is keeping rabies at bay." For more information please reread.

    It's nice to know that Candy-O and Get The Knack might still be topping the charts somewhere.

    Hehehee!

    I can think of a number of towns and villages in the UK like this - although saying that they're stuck in the 1970s might be being a tad generous!

    The quote in your signature from Margaret Thatcher, what does it mean?

    Well, first of all, you've got the nice pun on "You turn" (doing a u-turn / backtracking / changing your mind about something, you know?)

    Basically, one of the main tenets of Thatcher's political philosophy was to 'free up' the economy - amongst other things, she wanted to privatise lots of institutions that were formerly state-controlled. Her refusal to change her mind about this led to her 1980 speech about not being for "turning".

    And I thought it was sexual. I thought it may have been her refusal to perform in certain positions.
    I know, I'm foul....

    You really thought I'd put some reference to Margaret Thatcher's sexual proclivities in my sig.?

    Next you'll be getting funny ideas about my Shirley Conran, "stuffing a mushroom" quote!
