    As regards Portugal, we really enjoy Funchal, Madeira.
    Loads of good food.
    Accept that YMMV though.

    Wedding speeches are too long and incredibly boring.

    When I got married I stood up and said:

    'Today, Vicky has left me speechless' and sat down.

    Job done.

    Hope Vicky was your new wife and not one of the bridesmaids.

    99.9% of movies are utter rubbish and a waste of valuable time. Especially all this fiction stuff with elves n censored ! The current crop of James Bond films, utter drivel which get shown on TV every other week.

    French food is inferior to a lot of other countries: Portugal, Italy, Vietnam, Korea, and many more.

    V surprised you put Portugal in there. Was deeply unimpressed when I was there.
    I'm surprised that is an unpopular view, but it is the thread for that.

    Some more: Mexico, Morocco, Japan, Thailand. Tempted to include Turkey and China as well.

    France does beat some countries though, and is less overrated than Argentina. I think Argentina and Pakistan have been the most disappointing food experiences for me.

    I can see myself enjoying this thread...

    I think it is now it's had some work on it and annoying quirks sorted out. But good observation.

    I think it needs to be believable that someone would hold the 'unpopular opinion'.

    99.9% of movies are utter rubbish and a waste of valuable time. Especially all this fiction stuff with elves n censored ! The current crop of James Bond films, utter drivel which get shown on TV every other week.

    Apparently I hold the unpopular opinion that Daniel Craig is a better Bond than Sean Connery.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    That Les Misérables would be much better as a musical, rather than trying to be an opera.

    It's the lack of humour for me which Roger Moore had, after all we know the plots and swagger are are all a load of b0ll0cks anyway.

    Meh, I'm just getting old. I probably would have loved it in my teens:)

    Chubby Brown was better than Bernard Manning and Alf Garnett rocks. Coffee should be strong and black. Anything else is not coffee. Labour's useless but then again so are all politicians.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Allegedly your favourite Bond is the one you grew up with as an @12 year old.
    Moore in your case? I am definitely an outlier. 😉
    I feel sorry for those 12 year olds with T.Dalton. 🤣

    That the BBC's diversity / inclusivity agenda is not so good for the consumer.

    I give you R2 examples: Zoe Ball, 👎. Sara Cox 👍. But then again, Ken Bruce 👍, Steve Wright 👎. Maybe presenters getting hired should be based on talent?

    Depends on my mood, but mystified as to why it's considered a no go.

    You mean in the sense that cheese on a burger is fine. Blue cheese on steak is fine. Cheese on macaroni is fine. So why not have it on your fish?

    Fair point.

    I was genuinely going to post the opposite. Remarkable how often that happens!
