apparently there is a minister called the Skills Minister
yeah it's shorthand for "this thing is within this man/woman's portfolio. you're welcome.
this is a bit like when I started a thread pointing out how weird it is that we now have a hunting minister and everyone got all "smart" and pointed out he is actually the secretary of state for farmers or something. sigh.
his full title is Minister of State (Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning).
Everyone back to the mirrors thread.
...was one of the members of the extended Wu-Tang Clan.
incidentally I read it as "ministers you didn't know exercised" then imagined my obese church of scotland primary school chaplain trying to go running...
I had no idea, then suddenly BAM, I'd walked into the largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe.
that's weird how you got transported to Cologne from York.
Not all Minsters are Cathedrals, and not all Cathedrals are Minsters, but York Minster is both. The present Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in northern Europe and was built over a period of 250 years
...'York Minster is a Gothic cathedral in York, England and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe alongside Cologne Cathedral.'
The cathedral is one of the world's largest churches and the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe.
CHURCH, not Cathedral, though it is a Cathedral. Maybe because it's Catholic?
...is a cathedral, minster and church but in German there's a similar grey area between Kirche and Dom.
...and Herman Munster.
they're just less arsey about it

...my favourite is the weirdly pleasing restoration of Munich's Asamkirche:
The second largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe (largest is Cologne Cathedral) is York's most Iconic Landmark.
but I'm suggesting that perhaps he doesn't oversee the general FAQs of the minster website as much as perhaps he should.
played the djembe with him once.
By gross volume, and even without the buttresses, Cologne is quite a bit bigger.
York Minster is the largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe.
Cheeky cunt. I'm a journalist pal. I'll check out your sources. I'll check out your mum's sources too.
you're all equally boring my tits off
hey girls can know facts about churches too you know
Are you gonna trust that over the review below it with 4.5 thumbs up? Are you? Why don't you just hack somebody's phone, you hack.
also the distinction of German cathedrals can be a bit misleading. E.g. Frankfurt cathedral is not strictly a cathedral. Ulm Munster (tallest church) at least admits to being a minster.
a trainee used to call Westminster 'Westminister'
The forums have ears, careless posts cost lives etc etc
but about 18 times a day it's St Pancreas, even from long standing employees.
I had to look on a map when I got back to find out where I'd been. I tend to forget that anything south of Manchester, west of Birmingham and north of Bristol exists. Apart from Wales obviously.
a rare african bum disease, but as i'm at work, it's probably best not to mention it.
It now applies to Baroness Warsi. MAKE OF THIS WHAT YOU WILL.
