    Pc `wc`

    Heard a brief BBC news item on my car radio a few days ago which I thought would have been the subject of much debate by our resident Forum regulars. Students at Manchester University have voted to remove the existing `Ladies` and `Gents` signs on toilet doors as they are considered a source...
