so why should non-tea drinkers be expected to faff about with tea?
Because to make an adequate cup of tea, you literally put a bag in a cup then pour water on it.
Pretty sure most people would kick off if you didn't put any milk in it, and that's when the whole tea making process goes tits up.

Re: Your preferred format for CO-events

Wow. That poll is brutal. Interestingly differs significantly from my findings - I did a survey about a year ago which received 43 responses - 53.5% in favour of Lincoln and 46.5% in favour of Bristol. 53.5% is an overwhelming majority these days. All events should henceforth be Lincoln style.
